Some say Barack hussein Obama is the most evil human being ever. Not being religious I don't go in for evil, Satan, Asmodius and all that, but if we are talking about the most despicably hypocritical human being ever, Brack Obama has to be a contender. The man is so full of shit a torrent of the stuff pours out every time he opens his mouth. Take this shitstream from the warmonger in chief for example:
"America’s world supremacy is not about the number of occupied countries and fired missiles, believes the US president. Its international strength relies on diplomacy, protection of human rights and cooperation with other nations.
"The measure of strength internationally is not simply by how many countries we’re occupying, or how many missiles we’re firing, but the strength of our diplomacy and the strength of our commitment to human rights and our belief that we’ve got to cooperate with other countries together to solve massive problems like terrorism, but also like climate change,” the Washington Examiner cited Barack Obama as saying on Wednesday while addressing a 350-person fundraiser in Potomac, Maryland."
Obama made the statement on the seventh anniversary of his first-term presidential election, answering Republican critics that label his external policy as toothless. The case is of course that Obama has involved the USA in more wars and external conflicts that any other president (even that peace loving Democrat Bill Clinton), that his foreign policy has become a subject of ridicule is due to the incompetence of his administration in managing those interventions.
As recently as February 2015, the president publicly acknowledged that US foreign policy relied on military strength and economic leverage to achieve its aims. He said at that huncture that "American leadership" sometimes involves "twisting the arms” of nations which “don’t do what we need them to do."
"We occasionally have to twist the arms of countries that wouldn’t do what we need them to do if it weren’t for the various economic or diplomatic or, in some cases, military leverage that we exercised — if we didn’t have that dose of realism, we wouldn’t get anything done, either," President Obama said in an interview with Vox.
In May 2015 Obama gave a speech at West Point Military Academy’s graduation ceremony in which he said “America must always lead on the world stage.
"If we don’t, no one else will. The military that you have joined is, and always will be, the backbone of that leadership," Obama said.
He stressed that the US military potential remains at the core of America’s ability to influence changes abroad, therefore the Pentagon reserves the power to launch unilateral attacks when US interests are directly threatened.
So having stated so plainly and recently that Washington foreign policy relies on bullying, why is he backing off from that position now. Maybe it is because, having been exposed by Vladimir Putin over the Syria situation as a leader who lacks the testicular fortitude to back up his threats, Obama is trying to save face by reclaiming his peacemaker and joybringer, Obamessiah image.
Unfortunately that is not going to get him very far with the USA's standing in world politics at an all time low.
