Obama's foreign policy in one sentence

Rich Lowry sums up President Obama's policy on Iran in a way that applies to all foreign policy under the Obama administration across the board. Here's the sentence that says it all:
For all the talk of Obama's realism, he is pursuing a policy driven by a fantasy about international affairs—that all disputes can be resolved through negotiations and governments can be talked out of their interests.
That describes his policies on Israel too (although I believe that his policy on Israel is also driven by a visceral hatred that results from 20 years of listening to Reverend Wright and many lengthy conversations with Rashid Khalidi).

And for the person in the comments on an earlier post who asked for Obama's unicorn, here it is.

Bonus: Here's Lowry's funny take on Obama's view of history.

There will never be the universal utopia of the leftist imagination. Human nature is riven by different interests to ever bring about the unification of the world. All the empires of history failed to accomplish it. And the US will fall short as well.

Carl - more proof there is no such thing as random occurrences or blind fate in the world - after a headstrong confrontation with Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman, US Secretary Of State Hillary Clinton broke her elbow in a fall on the way to a White House meeting. When you take on Israel, G-d might step in teach you a painful lesson.

When one curses Israel, one suffers the consequences.
