President Obama causes the crowds in Europe to swoon with his polished speeches, but there is one Brit who sees beyond the facade and recognizes Obama for whom he is. That man is Gerald Warner from the UK Telegraph.
Read what Warner has to say about Obama's abandonment of our eastern European allies, Poland and the Czech Republic, via Gateway Pundit:
Gerald Warner: President Obama Restores the Satellite States to Their Former Owner
Well, the Russian leader was impressed anyway.
Gerald Warner analyzes the president's decision to turn his back on our staunch allies in Eastern Europe.
The Telegraph Blog reported:
'Barack Obama’s chances of re-election in three and a half years’ time may be evaporating at unprecedented speed, but his presidential ambitions could still be realised in another direction. He would be a shoo-in to win the next Russian presidential election, so high is his popularity now running in the land of the bear and the knout. Obama has done more to restore Russia’s hegemonial potential in Eastern and Central Europe than even Vladimir Putin.
His latest achievement has been to restore the former satellite states to dependency on Moscow, by wimping out of the missile defence shield plan. This follows on his surrender last July when he voluntarily sacrificed around a third of America’s nuclear capability for no perceptible benefit beyond a grim smile from Putin. If there is one thing that fans the fires of aggression it is appeasement.
Despite propaganda to the contrary, 58 per cent of Poles were in favour of the missile shield. But small nations must assess the political will of larger powers. Thanks to President Obama’s supine policies, the former satellite states can see that they are fast returning to their former status. The American umbrella cannot be relied upon on a rainy day. They have been here before. Poles remember how a leftist US president sold them out to Russia at Tehran and Yalta. The former Czechoslovakia was betrayed twice: in 1938 and 1945.
If the word is out that America is in retreat, it will soon find it has no friends. The satellites will pragmatically accept their restored subordination, without openly acknowledging it, and co-operate with their dangerous neighbour, ushering in a new generation of Finlandisation...
A pushover in the Oval Office is the best news Russian expansionists have heard since the fall of the Berlin Wall.'"
I look for the Ukraine to be the first target of Russian imperialism. Thank you very much, President Obama.
