“Nothing so encourages an aggressor as the perception of weakness in his antagonists. Barack Obama hasn’t even processed that he is an antagonist.” — Mona Charen
When a dedicated leftist like Barack Obama assures you he’s got your back, a prudent person might start searching for a convenient wall against which to stand, lest he shortly thereafter finds a blade stuck sharply between his shoulders. Just ask anyone living in Israel or the Ukraine — or serving in the armed forces of the United States, for that matter.
Barry’s recent trip to the Land of the Rising Sun, filled with the usual Obama bowing and scraping, meaningless platitudes, and ending with an insulting scold once he was safely away from Tokyo, proved once again that the Oval Office is no place for a metrosexual community organizer. Which is why the Japanese are beginning to invest in drones and amphibious assault vehicles. They’ve taken the measure of the American president and found lots of sleeve but not much arm.
