Gangsters understand and respect one thing whether on the street or in prison. Force. To the average American gangsters are intimidating only because they understand the use of force and indulge in the practice of wanton and violent application of it to effect their designs. I bring this up because for someone supposedly steeped in the tradition of Chicago gang history and dynamics, President Obama is either dangerously naive and ignorant about the basics of diplomacy or he is repudiating 60 years of American foreign policy. If Obama appears weak and conciliatory, it does not make our enemies and the world's opportunists like us more, instead it only serves to undermine our safety at home and abroad.

The problem for America is that doctrinaire lib'ruls like Obama always fail to make the same connection. Street gang thugs and tinpot third world dictatorial thugs who happen to control a country are cut from the same bolt of cloth. They think nothing of the most sociopathic behavior. History has demonstrated time and again that force is the only means by which to negotiate with them. Based on the utter lack of forceful response to either of the recent Iranian or North Korean provocations, and based on Obama's demonstrated fawning before the leaders of Islam and pan-Arabism, we are left to infer that either the Obama administration approves of the outlaw state actions and are sympathetic to their cause, or that the current American foriegn policy is incapable of dealing with a street level dispute in a major American city, much less the 5000 year struggle in the Middle East. Whether this change of course is due to naivete or conspiracy it matters not, in either event it does not bode well for America.

Obama bows to the Saudi King, he insults the Prime Minister of Great Britain and the British Queen with gifts more appropriate to an American teenager and he denigrates our intelligence and military communities in subtle ways with his words and actions. Today's blow comes in form of a dissed dinner invitation. On the eve of the D-Day Anniversary, French President Sarkozy had invited the Obama's to a formal supper at the Palace Elysee. The Obama's couldn't be troubled since they were staying at the American embassy, right next door. Too far to travel apparently. Perhaps had Obama been the beneficiary of a proper education in American History, he would have learned that France is our oldest ally, the one power who came to our aid when we most needed it in 1776-1778. I know I like to bash the French as much as the next guy and their most recent military history leaves something to be desired, but then again, I am not the official representative of the American people, the policymaker and the man who receives invitations to supper from the French President. (Memo to Sarko, Mrs. Smilin' Paul and I are free next Saturday...just sayin'...)

Of course left unsaid in this flurry of events is the obvious. Despite his protestations of centrism, Obama maintains a healthy disregard for anyone or anything to the political right. French President Sarkozy represents to the French people a seismic shift to the political right. Additionally his comments and actions towards the huge illegal muslim population in France have probably not warmed the cockles of our multicultural president's heart. So it is easier for the international socialist currently impersonating an American Commander in Chief to meet with self-indulgent dictators and sponsors of terrorism than it is to foster relations with our allies.

Of course his feel good diplomacy and less than tough talk have not stopped or even slowed the development of nuclear weapons by Iran and North Korea. Only today a new ICBM base was unveiled on the west coast of North Korea. Obama can always find the right words or actions to convey a sense of disdain for our friends, but it is a physical impossibility for him to forcefully renounce the actions of our enemies. To be sure he utters words that could loosely be construed as condemnation of nefarious foreign activity but his moves to finance and legitimize Middle East terrorists only serve to encourage the madmen in Pyongyang and Tehran. All of this activity can only viewed in the most alarmist terms in Israel. Our oldest ally in the Middle East and the only nation practicing democracy in that area prior to the Iraq War, is effectively left alone to confront the spectre of nuclear annihilation.

Where is the sanity? America is at war with radical Islam. The sooner that most Americans recognize that fact, the sooner we can move beyond the tragedy of this current administration, whose sole purpose thus far appears to be to destabilize the American economy, to renounce American foriegn policy and to subvert our culture. President Obama is the worst manifestation of overwrought multiculturalism. In foreign policy terms, this administration is overthinking everything on the side of the enemy. Just as you cannot make the Chicago gangs get along, you cannot achieve peace in the Middle East by feel good proclamations on one hand and backhanding our allies with the other. Geopolitical and military factors dictate one nation's response to another just as certainly as a drive-by shooting on the southside of Chicago will dictate a response from the intended victim gang.

The actions of Obama are at the same time staggeringly arrogant and naive. Israel has been left to stand alone despite the many concessions made on her part over the past 15 years. Palestinians will never be happy until there is no more Israel. The Israelis, who do not suffer the naivete of our Imperious Leader, understand their predicament. Let's hope it comes as no surprise to the Harvard whiz kids at the State Department when Israel turns to India or China to ensure her existence. It would serve us right.
