Obama Bows to The Chinese


Let there be no doubt...Obama's foreign policy is a dangerous joke. Here's a sobering story from the Washington Post:

In an attempt to gain favor with China, the United States pressured Tibetan representatives to postpone a meeting between the Dalai Lama and President Obama until after Obama's summit with his Chinese counterpart, Hu Jintao, scheduled for next month, according to diplomats, government officials and other sources familiar with the talks.

In explaining their reluctance to meet the Dalai Lama now, U.S. officials told Tibetan representatives that they wanted to work with China on critical issues, including nuclear weapons proliferation in North Korea and Iran, said an Asian diplomat with direct knowledge of the talks who spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the subject. Administration officials also hinted that they were considering selling a new tranche of weapons to Taiwan, which China claims as its own territory.

"We've got the classic case of a Western government yet again conceding to Chinese pressure that is imaginary long after that Chinese pressure has ceased to exist," said Robert Barnett, a Tibetan expert at Columbia University. "The Chinese must be falling over themselves with astonishment at what Western diplomats will give them without being asked. I don't know what the poker analogy would be. 'Please, see all my cards and take my money, too?'


This move will undoubtedly contribute to the growing consensus: Obama plays the fool on the world stage.

Never a fascist offended or Human Rights Advocate cheered. This is what Progressives call "Engagement".

There is a lot of company under Obama's bus. Shameful to see the Dalai Lama there.

Actually, Opus, I think Obama's bus is way to small to get all the people under there. He needs to expand to a train!

RK, Obama is out to charm our enemies. He thinks he's so personal, so magical, so special that all he has to do is smile and talk and he'll get everything he wants. Wonder how he felt about not getting the Olympic games for Chicago? Now that must have been a real blow to his over inflated ego!

He is such a disgrace. All are enemies are laughing at him. What a nightmare! I'm with Angel, is our 4 years of torture over yet?
If I was the Dalai Lama, I would NOT meet with him now. I hope he doesn't.

RV: Progressives will choose tyranny over liberty every time. I just don't understand.

O6: Our creditors are pulling the strings.

RaDena: If Obama isn't completely delusional, reality should begin to sink in now.

WHT: We only have to endure 4 years of this? Great!

AB: Worse than Jimmy.
