Two on Israel
When the history is written, one of the biggest--and competition will be fierce--failures of our current president will be thought to be his Middle East policy and, particularly, his lack of support for Israel.
Victor David Hanson, "Mr. Netanyahu and the End of Days":
In theory, it could be possible that Rouhani is a genuine pragmatist, eager to open up Iran's nuclear the world's remaining Jews live in tiny Israel -- a fact emphasized by the Iranian theocrats, who have in the past purportedly characterized it as a "black stain" upon the world.
Jed Babbin, "Three Speeches and a Funeral":
Rather than celebrate, it would be better to ask, can civilization survive such an Obama diplomatic triumph?
We know after almost five years of his presidency that Obama’s diplomatic strategy is to make concessions without obtaining anything of consequence from the adversary. You need only examine the terms of, for example, his strategic arms treaty with Russia to determine that. You could, if you really wanted redundant proofs, see what he’s negotiated with Putin on Syria, the new UN small arms treaty, and every other agreement Obama’s made.
