Barack Backs Out on Allies

True to his agenda, our president has now abandoned the missile defense shield in the Czech Republic and Poland. Czech Premier Jan Fischer told reporters that Obama phoned him overnight to say that "his government is pulling out of plans to build a missile defense radar on Czech territory." He said Obama assured him that the "strategic cooperation" between the Czech Republic and the U.S. would continue, and that Washington considers the Czechs among its closest allies.

Yes, that's the way to treat your closest allies, at least it's the Obama way. I'm sure they really feel they can count on our strategic cooperation going forward. "If the administration approaches us in the future with any request, I would be strongly against it," said Jan Vidim, a lawmaker with Czech Republic's conservative Civic Democratic Party, which supported the missile defense plan.

Once again, the infamous Obama diplomacy skills reap a harvest of animosity from those we may need most in the future. But, by doing this he has made the world a little safer for Iran.
