In case you were wondering why Chairman Zero threw our Polish and Czech allies to the Russian bear by yanking away their missile defense — on the 70th anniversary of Poland’s invasion by Russia, no less — foreign policy wiz Joe Biden explains:
“I think we are fully capable and secure dealing with any present or future potential Iranian threat,” he told CNN’s Chris Lawrence in Baghdad, where he is on a brief trip.
“The whole purpose of this exercise we are undertaking is to diminish the prospect of the Iranians destabilizing that region in the world. I am less concerned — much less concerned — about the Iranian potential.”
Who cares about Russia? The problem is Iran, and Iran’s not a problem. Also breaking yesterday:
Experts at the world’s top atomic watchdog are in agreement that Tehran has the ability to make a nuclear bomb and is on the way to developing a missile system able to carry an atomic warhead, according to a secret report seen by The Associated Press.
The document drafted by senior officials at the International Atomic Energy Agency is the clearest indication yet that the agency’s leaders share Washington’s views on Iran’s weapon-making capabilities.
It appears to be the so-called “secret annex” on Iran’s nuclear program that Washington says is being withheld by the IAEA’s chief.
Iran is on the verge of producing nuclear missiles that could reach our friends in Eastern Europe, and our government knows it — but apparently Plugs didn’t know that we know that he knows. Or he actually has no clue what’s going on, because the mistake of bringing this idiot into the White House to lend gravitas to Comrade Obama’s foreign policy is so glaringly obvious that they don’t bother to brief him anymore.
What’s really behind the sacrifice of our loyal Iraq allies Poland and the Czech Republic to their more immediate threat, Russia? Reaganite Republican offers a clue:
Once the White House announced they were axing the shield, Russia’s government said PM Vladimir Putin would meet several U.S. executives today from firms including General Electric, Morgan Stanley, and TPG- one of the world’s largest private equity firms.
General Electric may be the company with the closest ties to the Obama administration (if not Goldman Sachs), and here we see the company benefiting from a sudden foreign policy change implemented by Barack Obama.
GE CEO Jeff Immelt sits on Obama’s Economic Recovery Advisory Board, and GE owns MSNBC- you figure it out.
Even the three stooges — Brian Williams, Charles Gibson, Katie Cupcake — have the smarts to connect a few of these dots had they any interest. Scratch Williams — he’s on GE’s payroll.
