London Telegraph lists Top 10 Obama foreign policy follies

Nile Gardiner has an article in the London Daily Telegraph outlining Mr. Obama’s top ten foreign policy follies.

The top 10 list is shown here with more detail at the link below:

1. Surrendering to Russia over Missile Defense

2. Appeasing the Mullahs of Iran

3. Ending the War on Terror

4. Announcing a Surge while Declaring an Exit

5. Apologizing to France for America’s “Arrogance”

6. Giving DVDs to the British Prime Minister

7. Siding with Marxists in Honduras

8. Bowing to Emperors and Kings

9. Embracing Genocidal Killers in Sudan

10. Throwing Churchill out of The White House

While giving DVD’s to the British Prime Minister wasn’t real high on the list as American’s view it, the gift did show lack of judgement - even stupidity - on the part of Obama and was especially embarrassing because the DVD’s wouldn’t even work in the UK!

Also, not ranking as high on the list in the minds of American’s is removing the bust of Winston Churchill (pictured) from the White House.

Although Churchill was one of the greatest statesman and wartime leaders in human history, Barack Obama could not tolerate his bust in the White House.

It was during Churchill’s second term as Prime Minister that Britain suppressed Kenya’s Mau Mau rebellion.

Among Kenyans allegedly harmed by the colonial regime included a man named Hussein Onyango Obama who happened to be Barack Hussein Obama’s grandfather.

The very first comment at the end of the Telegraph article reads:

Certain world leaders realized from day one that an inexperienced, arrogant and narcissistic fool had been elected to represent the US on the world stage. While resisting the urge to snigger, they have systematically succeeded in playing him like a fiddle.

Iran has, today even, reached Chavez’s level of total public contempt. Russia and China have progressed from sniggering in private to publicly chastising and ridiculing while belly laughing in private.
