An altruistic foreign policy that enables tyrants

Miss Glick states the obvious, that Barack Obama’s social work/feel good foreign policy has only been to the benefit of Iran, Syria, Hamas, the Muslim Brotherhood and  Hugo Chavez.  It is obvious that Obama’s foreign policy can be reduced to this maxim,  “if George W. Bush was for it, then we’re against it, and if  Bush was against it, then we are now for it”.  She also sees the malign influence of  de facto Secretary of State (and our next  de jure Secretary of State if Obama wins in 2012) Samantha Power in all that is wrong with what Obama is doing in the world.

by Caroline Glick

if only in the interest of intellectual hygiene, it would be refreshing if the Obama administration would stop ascribing moral impetuses to its foreign policy.

Today, US forces are engaged in a slowly escalating war on behalf of al-Qaida penetrated antiregime forces in Libya. It is difficult to know the significance of al-Qaida’s role in the opposition forces because to date, the self-proclaimed rebel government has only disclosed 10 of its 31 members.

Indeed, according to The New York Times, the NATO-backed opposition to dictator Muammar Gaddafi is so disorganized that it cannot even agree about who the commander of its forces is.

And yet, despite the fact that the Obama administration has no clear notion of who is leading the fight against Gaddafi or what they stand for, this week the White House informed Congress that it will begin directly funding the al-Qaida-linked rebels, starting with $25 million in non-lethal material.

[...]

In deciding in favor of military intervention on the basis of a transnational legal doctrine never accepted as law by the US Congress called “responsibility to protect,” President Barack Obama was reportedly swayed by the arguments of his senior national security adviser Samantha Power. Over the past 15 years, Power has fashioned herself into a celebrity policy wonk by cultivating a public persona of herself as a woman moved by the desire to prevent genocide. In a profile of Power in the current issue of the National Journal, Jacob Heilbrunn explains, “Power is not just an advocate for human rights.

She is an outspoken crusader against genocide…”

Heilbrunn writes that Power’s influence over Obama and her celebrity status has made her the leader of a new US foreign policy elite. “This elite,” he writes, “is united by a shared belief that American foreign policy must be fundamentally transformed from an obsession with national interests into a broader agenda that seeks justice for women and minorities, and promotes democracy whenever and wherever it can — at the point of a cruise missile if necessary.”

As the prolonged slaughter in Libya and expected continued failure of the NATO mission make clear, Power and her new foreign policy elite have so far distinguished themselves mainly by their gross incompetence.

But then, even if the Libyan mission were crowned in success, it wouldn’t make the moral pretentions of the US adventure there any less disingenuous. And this is not simply because the administration-backed rebels include al-Qaida fighters.

The fact is that the moral arguments used for intervening militarily on behalf of Gaddafi’s opposition pale in comparison to the moral arguments for intervening in multiple conflicts where the Obama administration refuses to lift a finger. At a minimum, this moral inconsistency renders it impossible for the Obama administration to credibly embrace the mantel of moral actor on the world stage.

[...]

Apparently, the supposedly moral, anti-genocidal, pro-women Obama administration needs to be reminded why it is not merely distasteful but immoral to engage the Taliban. So here it goes.

Under the Taliban, the women and girls of Afghanistan were the most oppressed, most terrorized, most endangered group of people in the world. Women and girls were denied every single human right. They were effectively prisoners in their homes, allowed on the streets only when fully covered and escorted by a male relative.

They were denied the right to education, work and medical care. Women who failed to abide in full by these merciless rules were beaten, imprisoned, tortured, and stoned to death.

The Taliban’s barbaric treatment of women and girls probably couldn’t have justified their overthrow at the hands of the US military. But it certainly justified the US’s refusal to even consider treating them like legitimate political actors in the 10 years since NATO forces first arrived in Afghanistan. And yet, the self-proclaimed champions of the downtrodden in the administration are doing the morally unjustifiable. They are negotiating, and so legitimizing the most diabolical sexual tyranny known to man. Obama, Clinton, Power and their colleagues are now shamelessly advancing a policy that increases the likelihood that the Taliban will again rise to power and enslave Afghanistan’s women and girls once more.

Then there is Syria. In acts of stunning courage, despite massive regime violence that has killed approximately two hundred people in three weeks, anti-regime protesters in Syria are not standing down. Instead, they are consistently escalating their protests. They have promised that the demonstrations after Friday prayers this week will dwarf the already unprecedented country-wide protests we have seen to date.

In the midst of the Syrian demonstrators’ calls for freedom from one of the most repressive regimes in the Middle East, the Obama administration has sided with their murderous dictator Bashar Assad, referring to him as a “reformer.”

[...]

The Syrian opposition presents the likes of Obama and Power with what ought to be a serious moral dilemma. First, they seem to fit the precise definition of the sort of people that the transnationalists have a responsibility to protect.

They are being gunned down by the dozen as they march with olive branches and demand change they can believe in. Moreover, their plan for ousting Assad involves subordinating him to the transnationalists at the UN.

[...]

Back in the pre-Obama days, when US foreign policy was supposed to serve US interests, it would have mattered that these policies all weaken the US and its allies and empower its foes. But now, in the era of the purely altruistic Obama administration, none of that matters.

What does matter is that the purely altruistic Obama foreign policy is empowering genocidal, misogynist, bigoted tyrants worldwide.

    Not to mention telling us all to go out and buy electric cars while giving billions to Brazil to drill for oil. Many of the oil wells that were in the Gulf of Mexico are now in Egyptian waters so I guess you can say he created hundreds maybe thousands of jobs for the Muslim Brotherhood.

    I read yesterday that gas around Orlando, Fl is almost $6 a gallon. If its that high already in April I cringe at the thought of what it will be between Memorial Day and Labor Day.

    Yeah, I’ve been wondering the same thing.

    The MSM and their lib buddies started calling Afghanistan a quagmire after only a couple of weeks although it was a lot more decisive right away than what’s happening in Libya.

    Gaddafi seems to have decided to let the tribes fight the “rebels” (last I heard) which would make it impossible for the western countries to tell the difference between the tribes and the “rebels” that the west is backing.

    Also, the last two Holidays of Passover week commence at sundown for Jews. (It’s two Holidays for Jews outside of Israel starting this evening and one Holiday for Jews in Israel starting this evening.)

    It means being offline, etc, so observant Jews in America are offline from Sunday sundown until after sundown on Tuesday evening. Israeli Jews go back online on Monday evening after sundown.

    Passover is a very happy and vacation-y week in the Jewish world!

It is so twisted, I don’t even understand. I know it’s evil though. Power’s b.s agenda is tied up in anarchy and ultimately abt. crushing Israel. Years ago she talked abt. marching American troops in there and protecting the muzz.

    I am appalled -- though entirely unsurprised -- at the absolute lack of concern for Iraqi Christians on the part of the purportedly Christian GWB and Obozo.

    We have not had a Christian in the White House since Reagan left office. I wonder whether we will ever have one there again.

This is odd, given that they are all gung-ho for acceptance of evolutionary theory—but the fact remains that trying to alter the courses of the planet, which includes the changes wrought by Man, and whatever the consequence of those courses may be for the species which cannot adapt, is to set themselves up foursquare for fighting against the natural progress of evolutionary change.

    The Gaia-worshipers don’t accept that human beings are part of Earth. They see humans as invaders and conquerors who must be accused of anti-Gaia imperialism and fought to the death.

    They don’t mind saying that human beings came from evolution yet they still dispossess human beings in favor of rocks, water, critters large and small, and everything else in the universe.

    Everything in the universe is Gaia or Gaia-friendly except human beings, in their view.

    Libs reject religion in their own lives (although they can’t stop themselves from fawning over Islamists) so they set out to worship Gaia instead.

    In Gaia worship, humans are the devil.

    The Gaia-worshipers see themselves as having rejected the devil in themselves so that they can fight off the 7 billion who remain devils (minus the Muslims, of course).

    They see religion as silly superstition yet they have created their own religion that is anti-human.

    Hey, at least they sent a slip, I’ll go as far as giving them credit for that. A lot of other school districts around the country would have thumbed their noses at that proposition.

    OT. Just found out that a friend of 32 years, whom I’ve mentioned here before, passed away. A retired Navy SEAL, 3 war veteran with 2 Silver Star Citations. One of the Greatest Generation. John Wayne’s war movie career could have been loosely based on his life. He will be missed.

    Absolutely! They are to be commended for giving families the choice about their kids seeing the film!

    RIP to this hero. We’re losing many of these fine men every week.

    @ Eliana:

    Probably the only reason why is because the school board and school district aren’t overwhelmingly liberal.

    It would be nice if school districts presented both sides of the argument someday, of course.

    @ Eliana:

    Frankly, parents should demand that this piece of propaganda not be shown at all—and/or demand that a countervailing view be shown.

    Or—and this would get interesting—demand that one of the films, like “Obsession,” which discusses the threat of jihad, be shown as part of the “price” for parents not storming the school system to demand the withdrawal of “Inconvenient Truth.”

    He was 88. We were beginning to think he might be immortal, too ornery to die, but age never loses.
    At his funeral, half the people will be there to say goodbye to a 1 of a kind character, half to make damn sure he’s really dead,, and the VC won’t show cuz’ they’re afraid he might come back./

    Ah man, the Dos Equis man passed away and I was goofing on him over at DoD earlier. How weird is that?

    He wasn’t even Latino as the commercials suggested, he was a native New Yorker and Jewish.

    May he find peace in Yahweh’s arms.
