Iran Knows A Carter When They See One
— LauraW

From the top line on Drudge this morning:

US President Barack Obama's offer to talk to Iran shows that America's policy of "domination" has failed, the government spokesman said on Saturday.
"This request means Western ideology has become passive, that capitalist thought and the system of domination have failed," Gholam Hossein Elham was quoted as saying by the Mehr news agency.

"Weakness is provocative."
-Ronald Reagan

Great. Now a whole new generation of young Americans can watch shitty little tyrants kick America around the schoolyard.

Just super, Obama. Nice job.

Sad when our enemies are smarter than the majority of our own public.

Oh well, to paraphrase a famous lefty "America's chickens, will come home to roost!"

2 Cue dumb liberals: "They don't really mean it! They just need us to give them more concessions, then they'll appreciate us for what we are!" To the liberal mindset, The Whole Rest of the World = abusive yet too-sexy-to-leave boyfriend.

6 "This request means Western ideology has become passive, that capitalist thought and the system of domination have failed," Or rather, this request means that we have a stupid ass Citizen of the World president that is hell bent on bringing our country down. He has learned his lessons well.

It's back to the Seventies. But you know what? Maybe four years of this is exactly what America needs to make her remember why it elected Reagan to begin with.

9 Here's an idea, we give the Iranians all those douche bags in the "I Pledge" video in exchange for................. Well, I'm not sure I'd want anything in return. Hey, it's just us being magnanimous. And that would be a whole lot better than $250 million dollar check ala Vice-president Hair plugs.

10 "This request means Western ideology has become passive, that capitalist thought and the system of domination have failed," Gholam Hossein Elham." BINGO! American foreign policy is officially passive, in a Senator Craig assuming a wide stance sort of way... Is this an example of the sort of "Smart Foreign Policy" Hillary was talking about?? An American on his hands and knees begging for an audience with Ahmedhandjob??? Don't the Iranians realize they are snubbing The One, who means to give every Iranian a free unicorn??? Don't the Fuckers wants HOPE???

11 You see? lt's basic dog psychology. lf you scare them and get them peeing down their leg, they submit. Yet if you project weakness, you draw aggression. That's how people get hurt.
You see, fear causes hesitation...
..and hesitation will cause your worst fears to come true. So it's simple. You project strength to avoid conflict. Peace through superior firepower.

13 The story of Obama and Iran as told through the Ace of Spades Lifestyle....

Iran: We are going to kick your ass and then screw you like a viking.

Obama: (starts to unbuckle pants)

Iran: What? What the hell are you doing?

Obama: (takes swig of Valu-Rite, drops his pants and turns around) Well, if you are going to screw me like a viking there's really no point in fighting is there? I mean, violence is bad so if you are going to go viking on me anyway, why not cut out the middle man? See, I'm a man of peace! (secretly thinking to himself..."this will impress them and then they won't go viking on me")

Iran: We were wrong about you

Obama: (smiles, thinking he has won them over)

Iran: You are even weaker and more scurrilous than we thought. We will not go viking on you, you are not worthy.

Obama: See, diplomacy has worked!

Iran: Not so fast. We will not go viking on you but we have several pet Dobermans....

Obama:

Moral of the story...we are soooo fucked.

Obama's kowtowing is probably the final signal (if they didn't get it already) to the Israelis that they're on their own concerning Iran.

However, once the Israelis blow the hell out of Iran's nuclear program, the Messiah is probably going to unleash the full wrath of the US government (under the teachings of Samantha Powers) against them for having the gall to defend themselves and not rely on Messiah's empty promises and moral equivalence.

19 Let me just say loudly and clearly: "Generation We" (GenWe) can suck my quite impressive cock. Little fucking snots grow up with all the material advantages the Reagan Revolution made possible for them - iPods, cell phones, $300 sneakers, $4 drinks at Starbucks chatting on their iMacs - and then they turn around and vote for THIS because the little fuckers have "no Hope." Let's see how much "hope" they have of getting jobs when they finally finish up college. Hope the fucks enjoy their time in Obama's Hopeful Soup Kitchens. In the immortal words of Senator Blutarsky: "Seven years of college down the drain!"

21 So... less than a fortnight into the Age of the Unicorn and we have:

- Iran telling us that we're a failure, but if we're sorry we can still be Ahmedinnerjackets bitch so long as we apologize for being a useless whore,  put out every night, bring him beer when we're told and otherwise STFU unless spoken to. Meanwhile Barry sends Iran love notes, apologizes and offers blowjobs to anyone in a turban.
- North Korea says, "That whole non-aggression thing.. yeah, we're not so into that anymore" Meanwhile, The One eats his holy waffles.
- $1.2 billion pork filled dildos getting ready to rape our economy
- The Obama rehabilitation program for tax criminals: give them cabinet jobs
- Let's send 30,000 troops to Afghanistan without a cohesive plan and, while we're at it, cut the military budget by 11%

Does anyone know where I can sign up to secede Texas from the USSA?

22 I will say this, the Western model has failed. Most leaders in the west are more concerned with being liked and getting a good score from the various and sundry NGOs. They will not stand up even to these piss ants. And to boot, we elect someone base on their skin color, yeah there's a good reason to vote for someone. So, I've got to agree with this guy, the west has failed, but not because of anything he did. No, a generation of progressives get to stand up and take a bow for this crap.

26 To quote Orwell:  "Pacifism is objectively pro-facist."

Can anyone tell me when, exactly, this Golden Age of Diplomacy was that the liberals point to as an example of how this kind of thing makes everything so much better?  Or are they just wishfully thinking again, hoping that foreign policy concerns will just go away so they can build their domestic Utopia (which, also, has no historical basis)?

This Julius Caesar of which you speak is not the one who you think he was. Gaius was not known for a being a 'passive' coward. If you think conquering Gaul, invading Britain, and starting a civil war is the mark of weakness, I'd hate to see whom you consider tougher.

In short, WTF?

37, I think he fumbled-that was probably an attempt to say that Obama makes Bush look like Julius Ceasar.  Or something.

Odd, since the left has been telling us for eight years that he was Julius Ceasar.

40 Iran better be on notice. Yesterday Barry unleashed this language on North Korea after it ditched the peace pact with South Korea.

47 I recently asked my krav maga instructor what effect crying would have on a potential fight. My thought was that since I'm female, it might disarm the attacker. His response was basically that if you show weakness, you're just going to get beat harder. The best option is to stay in control of yourself and not let trash talk or threats intimidate you, and be ready and willing to attack if you can't defuse or otherwise neutralize the situation.

I think my krav instructor needs to go to the White House.

In Obama's quest to show us all how fast he can implement change, he and the fucking idiots he surrounded himself with are tripping over each other with ideas of what to say and how to implement these changes.   It's not that I would expect the results to be any different if they were to slow the process down, because they wouldn't be, it's just the arrogance on their part to quickly show us all how "intelligent" they are.

I'm sure we won't read about it in the news, but I'll bet there are several foreign governments that are just rolling their eyes at this fiasco, particularly the constant foreign policy mis-steps...so far.  Oops.  There just went another one!

59 "Now that didn't take long", said an insider about the news: "They said it couldn't be done, but we have emasculated U.S. power in less than two weeks."

Even reporters were able to detect a change: "Carter's got nothing on this guy." one seasoned scribe observed: "It took him years to project weakness around the globe."

"We're thinking of starting a new thing," the Time guy said: "Eunuch of the Year."
