We really have degenerated to farce, as our President, figuratively, gives the finger to us and to the world. The Daily Mail reports:
Surrounded by world leaders, President Barack Obama gave the peace sign as they gathered for a ‘team photo’ during a two-day nuclear summit.
All eyes were on Obama as 54 other presidents and prime ministers joined him in Washington, DC, for crunch talks on Iran and terrorist threats involving nuclear weapons.
There was one set of eyes, however, that was particularly focused on the President – those of Prime Minister David Cameron.
Relations between Cameron and Obama have been strained since the President criticized the Prime Minister for getting ‘distracted’ during the crisis in Libya and turning it into a ‘s**t show’.
There was more than metaphorical distance between the pair at today’s summit, with Cameron only able to glare at Obama from across the podium as he was elbowed out to the edge of the stage.
After a day of tense, sensitive discussions on ISIS and the Middle East, Obama played up for the cameras as he grinned and held up the peace sign.
That’s the kind of tension one might expect with the President of the United States publically blames other world leaders for his own mistakes and fecklessness.
The President has come under fire for his relaxed attitude in recent weeks.
You don’t say.
The President said no terrorist group had succeeded in getting hold of making a dirty bomb, but said al-Qaeda wanted to and ISIS had already used chemical weapons in the Middle East.
He said there was no doubt that if ISIS ‘mad men’ got a nuclear bomb, they would use it to kill as many people as possible. Obama gave a chilling warning that such a catastrophic disaster would ‘change our world’.
‘We have measurably reduced the risk,’ Obama said. But he added: ‘The threat of nuclear terrorism persists and continues to evolve.
Really. “We have measurably reduced the risk.” What about Iran? ISIS? Other terrorist groups? North Korea? China? Russia? What about Arab states seeking nuclear weapons? What about every one of our allies knowing, beyond any doubt, that the United States’ guarantees of defense are not to be trusted?
What’s next? An American president shaking the bloody hands of Cuban communist dictators and doing the wave at a baseball game with them—oh, wait…
