Obama's Latest Bow: Mahmoud Ahmadinejad
By John Lillpop
Owing to the fact that far too much underage Muslim blood was spilled in the dramatic standoff with Pirates on Easter Sunday, President Obama has decided to pursue a "Bush-free" approach to resolving conflicts with murderous thugs.
Obama's "kinder, gentler' strategery will be first applied to relations with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the Islamofascist who believes that Jews should be moved, en masse, to a remote, shark-infested spot in the Mediterranean sea.
As reported, in part, at MSNBC:
"The Obama administration and its European allies are preparing proposals that would shift strategy toward Iran by dropping a long standing American insistence that Tehran rapidly shut down nuclear facilities during the early phases of negotiations over its atomic program, according to officials involved in the discussions.
"The proposals, exchanged in confidential strategy sessions with European allies, would press Tehran to open up its nuclear program gradually to wide-ranging inspection. But the proposals would also allow Iran to continue enriching uranium for some period during the talks. That would be a sharp break from the approach taken by the Bush administration, which had demanded that Iran halt its enrichment activities, at least briefly to initiate negotiations."
In a clear demonstration of just how seriously Obama's words and deeds are taken throughout the world, immediately upon learning of the Obama Resolve, Somalia Pirates seized four more ships on the high seas.
From Tehran, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad countered Obama's offer by declaring that Iran will not meet with the United States until Israel's nuclear programs are shut down and all U.S. aid to the Jewish state is halted.
From Tel Aviv, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin "Bibi" Netanyahu
placed a "rush order" with General Motors for 7,112,359 life jackets, just in case the Obama Resolve has legs. This move is expected to ease the recession and improve Obama's poll numbers.
How utterly clever of our new president to use his Bully Pulpit to solve multiple problems simultaneously.
What a pity that previous American leaders lacked Obama's creativity and vision.
For instance, the Revolutionary War could have been settled much quicker and more amicably if George Washington and his gang of rebels had not made such a bid deal about independence, freedom, and "taxation without representation."
Likewise, Abraham Lincoln could have ended the Civil War with far less blood shed if he had only been willing to drop his snotty insistence that the South abandon slavery.
Ronald Reagan could have saved hundreds of billions of dollars if he had been more prudent in executing the Cold War. Imagine how much better off the world would be if RR had been willing to drop his silly "Star Wars" ideas and had not bugged the Soviets about the Berlin War.
Apparently, the world is blessed with the likes Barack Obama only once in blue moon--a fact worthy of a Tea Party and wild celebration on April 15!
