Middle East & Foreign Policy

The Middle East or Mideast is a region that encompasses Western Asia and Northern Africa. A country's foreign policy, also called the foreign relations policy, consists of self-interest strategies chosen by the state to safeguard its national interests and to achieve its goals within International Relations milieu. 5.0/5

Leon Panetta’s Phony Tough Guy Act It’s amazing what people will do when they are selling books. Former Obama CIA director and Pentagon chief Leon Panetta is sounding like a war hawk in promoting "Worthy Fights", his new book about the foreign policy disasters of the Obama administration. Obama has “lost his way,” Panetta says, hoping people won’t notice how Panetta guided the way for much of the time, from one disaster to another. When he took the CIA job, Panetta was known as a far-left California congressman who had worked feverishly to undermine President Ronald Reagan’s anti-communist policies. Panetta was naïve, to put it charitably, about the communist threat. As AIM reported, he even had communist connections. The book shows nothing has really changed. Nevertheless, some have jumped on Panetta’s recent criticism of Obama’s Middle East policies, especially his comments about Obama’s no-win war against ISIS. This makes Panetta look tough, as he prepares to accept an award named a ...

Steven Sotloff was an American Jew beheaded by ISIS. It difficult and dangerous for any journalist in the Middle East but to be an American and Jewish requires a certain conviction and courage. Steven was a journalist who traveled to the Middle East to cover the suffering of Muslims at the hands of tyrants. He freelanced Time, Foreign Policy, World Affairs and The Christian Science Monitor. His travels took him to Yemen, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Turkey — among other countries — and eventually Syria where he went missing a year ago. RIP and may justice be served in massive doses.
Now you all know how I like to watch FoxNews so I can be well-rounded when it comes to news coverage... I'm watching my least-liked person Hannity (such a hater) and he asks the question, "How should we in America handle this latest beheading? Here to join me now is Phil From Duck Dynasty to talk about it." OMG REALLY? Phil Robertson? Wow such an expert in the Middle East and foreign policy! This is why I laugh when I watch FoxNews... Not all is bad at Fox, don't get me wrong, they do have some good coverage, a few good journalists but Hannity, Judge Janine and the like? They throw that hate out like they were getting paid to do so! This is why I can only watch those shows for about 5 minutes. Lol

Don Giovanni of West’s international policies: The unrepentant sociopath whose conquests number in the thousands and who remains indifferent to the pain and suffering he’s caused, didn’t just remind me of my ex boyfriend. No, there was something more in his smug hubris, his unabated appetites, something that recalled dramas happening outside the theatre, in the Middle East, Latin America and Eastern Europe. And then it dawned on me: Don Giovanni’s predatory technique of seduction and abandonment is nothing less than the modus operandum of US Foreign Policy. As jilted politicos – from Noriega to the Shah of Iran to Saddam Hussein – can attest, the only thing worse than being an enemy of the US is being a former ally. And yet the amazing thing is, just as with the seductive Don, people keep falling for the same tired old lines. “I think you’re really special, and I want to liberate you. Of course I’m not only interested in your oil fields. Your people deserve an autonomous state.” And le ...

Since the race card doesn't apply to Chris Anderson, Stuart James is playing the sexual orientation card. One day, Democrats will run out of cards to play, i.e., excuses, and will have to accept responsibility for their lack of leadership and their poor governance. Just this week, we've seen two prime examples of local Democrats using the Barack Obama playbook: 1. Trumping up charges of bigotry and hatred. The people that disagree with President Obama and his lack of leadership are labeled racists. Councilman Anderson is trying to paint the leaders of his recall effort as bigots. 2. Voting "present" (pass) on important issues. As a state senator in Illinois, Barack Obama voted "present" 129 times. As President, he has been indecisive, especially concerning foreign policy issues that have arisen in the Middle East. Mayor Andy Berke and Hamilton County Democratic Party Chair Terry Lee have both essentially voted "present" on the UAW, choosing not to take a stance against the UAW. As a Senator, Mayor Berk .. ...

Isreal and Clash of Titans? Clash of the titans Uri Avnery Published — Saturday 23 November 2013 Last update 22 November 2013 10:55 pm This is not merely a fight between Israel and the US. Nor is it only a fight between the White House and Congress. It is also a battle between intellectual titans. On the one side there are the two renowned professors, Stephen Walt and John Mearsheimer. On the other, the towering international intellectual, Noam Chomsky. It’s all about whether the dog wags the tail or the tail wags the dog. Six years ago the two professors shocked the US (and Israel) when they published a book, “The Israel lobby and US Foreign Policy,” in which they asserted that the foreign policy of the United States, at least in the Middle East, is practically controlled by the State of Israel. To paraphrase their analysis, Washington, D.C. is in effect an Israeli colony. Both the Senate and the House of Representatives are Israeli occupied territories, much like Ramallah and Nablus. This is dia ...

Christopher Hitchens on U.S. Foreign Policy, the Middle East and the Persian Gulf War (1991)
Al’s thought for today: Time to look after Numero Uno Whilst I would detest living under the dictatorial systems prevalent in the Middle East and beyond, The West’s holier than thou, let’s give them all democracy (‘cause it’s good for us as well that this should happen) foreign policy has resulted in massive destabilisation of countries on the Mediterranean rim and also Afghanistan and Pakistan. All this talk of Arab Springs; weapons of mass destruction raining down; and we must defeat the dreaded Taliban who were supposedly about to annihilate the West has been a total disaster for us. Sorry, but the Foreign Policy of UK should first and foremost be about self interest. Other interests come a distant second. William Hague who last year was crowing about our involvement in the Arab Spring is now totally tongue tied as he realises the enormity of the mistake of our involvement. This same argument applies equally to Foreign Aid. We have the singularly ridiculous situation of ring fencing these giv ...
President Obama Supports Al Qaeda War On Women Filed under Email Featured, Foreign Policy, Islam, Middle East, Terrorism, War Al Qaeda, Feminism, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Syria 85 American women and the LGBT community overwhelmingly supported the re-election of a President they ordained as the messiah of twenty-first century equality, tolerance, and morality. I wonder if these Obama loyalists take issue with the President’s decision to support Islamist rebels in Syria who are performing at will public executions of Syrians fighting to preserve Assad’s government tolerance of women’s rights and freedoms. Women’s rights in Syria will evaporate if Al Qaeda backed Al Nusrah is successful in removing Bashir Assad and his Shiite Alawite government from Damascus. Obama’s tolerant radicals, I mean rebels—the recently vetted Islamist terror groups awaiting shipments of US weapons—have recently issued a fatwa (an order based on Sharia law) banning women from leaving their houses “in immodest dress, in t ...

John Kerry Approves $1.3 Billion In Aid To Country That Hates Us Filed under Email Featured, Ethics, Foreign Policy, Islam, Middle East, National Security, Terrorism 123 B. R. Ambedkar said: “History shows that where ethics and economics come in conflict, victory is always with economics. Vested interests have never been known to have willingly divested themselves unless there was sufficient force to compel them.” The difference between scruples and ethics generally lies in action. Though the two terms are nearly synonymous, I see a difference: one relates to thought, while the other relates to action. In order to behave ethically, one must first have scruples. However, as Ambedkar said, ethics only hold weight up to a certain point. Once money is involved, the weight of ethics suddenly becomes much lighter. As the world’s most wealthy and influential country, the United States distributes billions of dollars in foreign aid each year. This is a good thing. Just as in our own lives, if we have the me ...
Exactly Why Is President Obama Going to Israel? Sunday, 24 February 2013 13:18 By Carl Bloice, Foreign Policy in Focus | News Analysis font size Print Email President Barack Obama boards Air Force One en route to Atlanta, at Andrews Air Force Base, Feb. 14, 2013. (Photo: Stephen Crowley / The New York Times) Both Israel and the United States seek to quash expectations that the visit will jump-start the Israeli-Palestinian peace process. While Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says he and U.S. President Barak Obama have agreed that when the U.S. President visits Israel they would discuss “three main issues ... Iran's attempt to arm itself with Nuclear Weapons, the unstable situation in Syria ... and the efforts to advance the diplomatic process of peace between the Palestinians and us," that’s not exactly what others are saying in either Washington or Tel Aviv. As soon was announced that the President would be visiting the Middle East, supporters of the policies of the Netanyahu government went ...

As the official representative for the US, Gore signed most of the UN resolutions for the US. One of those resolutions was that every developed nation be forced to share their wealth and technology with poorer and underdeveloped nations. Another resolution was to create the UN green helmeted environmental police that would have legal jurisdiction over every nation in the world if they perceived a possible environmental threat or disaster. The green helmets would be able to cross international boundaries and dictate to their leaders what needed to be done to resolve the supposed environmental threat or crisis. The scariest resolution put forth at the 1992 UNCED conference ...
Today, we"ll be discussing the "pro" side of this complex issue in depth. Initially note that "current" U.S. foreign policy toward the Middle East Policy is highly varied " unlike during the Bush era, Obama has eschewed a one-size-fits-all policy in favor of a mixture of traditionally "hardline" and "softline" measures. For this reason, the pro has a litany of options for criticizing these policies from a variety of angles. We"ll begin with the "too hardline" arguments, move to the "too softline" arguments, and finally discuss specific criticisms at the end. In the most general sense, Glenn Greenwald explains the ways in which Obama"s "hawkish" policies are damaging to National Security: Glenn Greenwald, "Grading Obama"s Foreign Policy," Foreign Policy, January 23, 2012. President Obama's achievements and setbacks can be roughly understood as ones of means and ends, respectively. When it comes to pursuit of his foreign-policy aims, he has proven himself a far shrewder and more efficient technocratic manag ...
Mr. President..."Commannder In Chief" of all our military forces and our Diplomatic Corp you Foreign Policy in the Middle East has Failed. You and your staff sit in the situation room in the White House watch and listen to in real time the attack on Bin Laden's compound in Pakistan. Yet an attack on our Consulate in Benigozie Lybia on November 12, 2012 that lasted more than (7) hours and within two hours a known terriost organization associated with Al-Qaeds claimes responsibility and you say you didn't know it was a terriost attack. Not only did you know Mr. President we had a drone circling over the area filming the whole thing. President Richard Nixon for pekes sake was forced to resign the honorable office which you now hold for just telling the American people a LIE!

On top of that you felt it was more important to go on to a political r ...
Just got my copy of “A Minute With Mary”; Congresswoman Mary Bono-Mack’s regular Friday email to her subjects. In this issue she writes about Malala Yousafzai, the Pakistani schoolgirl who was shot by the Taliban earlier this month because she speaks out on behalf of human rights for girls. Bono-Mack writes “…This week, I urged Secretary of State Hillary Clinton – along with 10 other members of the Women’s Policy Committee (WPC) in the U.S. House of Representatives – to work with Prime Minister Pervez Ashraf to ensure that the Government of Pakistan prosecutes those responsible for the attack on Malala to the fullest extent of the law.” Can you imagine that Hillary Clinton was in need of that bit of input from Mary Bono-Mack? I’ll bet Hillary is just sitting beside the phone waiting for a call from Mary Bono.

Foreign Policy does now matter in this election. Here is why. 2008 then Candidate Obama had very little foreign policy experience beside the Nuclear Weapons ban; however, he has a VP candidate with military experience plus he prepared very well to know current events in the Middle East and the World. That' s why he was able to defeat John Mccain in the debate on Foreign Policy. And this President say what he means and means what he says. Romney and Ryan have no Foreign Policy experience whatsoever. He did not take the time during his six years of running for office to educate himself enough to have a good grips on global policy. Two, he has no backbone and lies about everything. TRUST GOES A LONG WAY and SHOULD BE THE FIRST ON THE AGENDA for President; it's all about character. Mitt Romney has not earned our trust for this country; he tried to buy it. WE'RE NOT FOR SALE. This is what made Foreign Policy an issue in this election.

Let's look at the big picture: This debate was on Foreign Policy. Obama's record: 1. US Ambassador killed, first time in over 30 years. 2. 3 Navy Seals killed in Libya at the same time. 3. A helicopter of Navy Seals killed overseas in Afghanistan. 4. Radical Muslim Brotherhood takes over Egypt, a former Ally. 5. Venezuelan Hugo Chavez thumbs his nose at the US and endorses Obama for 2012. 6. White House leaks that are so severe that even long term Demoncratic Senator Dianne Feinstein was shocked. She is on the Senate Intelligence committee. 7. Israel has to embarrass Obama in a news conference pleading not to go back to 1967 borders. 8. Israelis don't believe Obama has their backs if they need to attack Iran's nuclear facility, creating great confusion with our main Middle East Ally. 9. Syria in deadly civil war, 33,000 people killed. 10. Middle East in flames and riots and Anti American sentiment at an extremely low state. 11. Iran 4 years closer to a nuclear bomb. 12. North Korea continuing to threaten ...
Tonights Debate is about US Foreign Policy. This debate is the 1 debate that President Obama should win. No sitting president SHOULD ever lose a debate on foreign policy. While Romney should be informed on many issues in regards to foreign policy I would not expect him to be an expert. Nor would I expect him to be able to present ideas based on the limited information (he and we) has access to. Having said that I have a few facts on foreign policy that I think are important to tonight's debate. We are currently under 13 active State of Emergencies declared or continued by Obama, the States of Emergency are in relations to Columbia, Congo, Sudan, Iran, weapons of mass destruction, the Middle East, Cuba, Libya, Burma, Russia and uranium, the Balkans, and 2 related to 9/11. Many people are not aware that we are constantly in a state of emergency. On Libya and the attack that killed Ambassador Stevens it should be noted that 3 separate attacks occurred in the months leading up to his death. On many occasions, ...
I expect this evening’s debate topic of Foreign Policy to reflect the differences between the President’s and the Governor’s Foreign Policy strategy and skills of negotiation. The President has a strategy of engagement leading to America being “liked”. The President first ran as a Citizen of the World capable of results not previously attained. However, recent events in the Middle East and Northern Africa reflect a strategic failure by the President with his strategy of “leading from behind”. America remains a Great Satan destined for destruction by radical Islam. The President negotiated poorly the withdrawal from Iraq. And his announcing the pull out time table in Afghanistan places our uniformed personnel in great risk and emboldens the subjugators of women by those choosing to be locked into the 12th Century. The Governor has yet to layout his strategy and the details of his Foreign Policy vision and goals. That will be done during tonight’s debate. I expect the Governor’s appr ...
Kurt Nimmo | Kentucky senator opposes "wrongheaded policy ideas" and the assertion that the United States is "not being bellicose enough in the Middle East."
Mr. Obama’s powerful sympathies for the Islamic World explain much of his foreign policy - apologizing for American behavior in the Middle East, appeasing Iran, engaging in long-term nation-building in Afghanistan, abandoning Iraq, supporting the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, empowering radical Islamists in Libya, backing the disastrous Arab Spring and the relentless undermining of Israel. In short, Mr. Obama is the true protege of the Rev Jeremiah Wright: an anti-colonial, anti-Western radical leftist who seeks to use U.S. power in the service of the Arab street. In many ways, he is our first Muslim president.

My thoughts today as I watched mob violence spread throughout the Middle East and North Africa today: In 2008 Respected economists Thomas Sowell said of then Candidate Obama that the damage his presidency would do to the economy would pale in comparison to the damage he would do to our Foreign Policy. He said that Obama's vision of America and its place in the world would put the peace of freedom loving people everywhere at great risk and that his fear was that an Obama presidency would see the rise of radical Islam, a nuclear Iran, Israel in danger, and an impotent America incapable of securing peace and stability. He warned, "The point when they (Iran) get that bomb will be the point of no return. Iran's nuclear bomb will be the terrorists' nuclear bomb-- and they can make 9/11 look like child's play. All the things we are preoccupied with today, from the price of gasoline to Health Care to global warming, will suddenly no longer matter." "We are much like people drifting down the Niagara River, obliv ...
The White half of Obama's brain left him for his refusal to attend CIA and National Security Briefing because the white half was his intelligent and logic portion of his dimwitted brain. His other brain half is not all African by the way as the majority of this portion of Obama's brain is "arab." Thie is why our Foreign Policy in the Middle East is in such a shamble and leaderless. Obama bent over to kiss and make over the Arab Muslims shamefully and now the Muslims true self is exposed - they all hate America, Jews, and the Jewish State of Israel. POTUS has yet to condemn the Muslims for murdering Ambassador Stevens and three of his staff personnel. Only Mitt Romney stood tall condemning these Muslim atrocities, defending our honor, making no apologize, and informing the Muslims you miserable *** are going to see a big change in Foreign Policy come November 5, 2012.
Both sides of politics have shown very poor judgement with regard to this policy . we as Australians need to start to show more compassion with regard to people fleeing with their families .Australia as a nation of caring people, have always shown great compassion to the under dog in the past . after all unless you are indigenous - we are all really refugees from other lands - as Australia' foreign policy demonstrated following the Second World War & Vietnam War, the people that were allowed to settle here became our best and most productive ,patriotic citizens . Why can't this be the case now , with people from the Middle East or Sri Lanka . Some how we all need to examine our priorities and adjust accordingly .

She also notes: "The hatred of women goes deep in Egyptian society."
