Obama's new vision; our enemies are our friends and our friends are enemies.
This week marks a seminal change in American foreign policy, one in which America's allies are alienated while our tyrannical enemies are coddled. Look no further than the developments in Latin America. First, we have the recent pronouncement that the Obama administration intends to "seek a new beginning" with Cuba. This "thaw" in what are otherwise characterized as icy relations include the relaxation on travel restrictions and remittances (transfer of monies). Apparently, Obama had no intention of holding the dictatorial regime's feet to the fire and demand human rights reformation or freedom for political prisoners.
Nonetheless, the Obama administration is not assuaged. It deems patriotic Americans and allies like Israel as enemies, while our true enemies including Cuba, Chavez, and the Saudis are subsumed.
