As we all know President Barack Obama has this utopian ideology that he can create a world without nuclear weapons through sitting down and talking with the thug leaders of the countries determined to become a nuclear power. We heard in his speech to the UN about this wishful thinking, all while other powerful world leaders quietly stood by in disbelief at the weakness of the new American President. While giving that address Obama and other UN officials were fully aware of Iran having the hidden nuclear facility that was revealed to the public the following day. But instead of taking advantage of the audience that he had, Obama brushed of the Iranian threat as if it was a third world country trying to create its own clothes line. Obama should have used the timing to rally international support and prepare to take action against Iran and their long history of illegal tactics as soon as possible.

This left world leaders who are accustomed to a strong United States of America perplexed. The America that the world, and all of us, knew was one that would not stand for the rebellious acts of Iran and North Korea. But, trying not to “spoil the image of success” for President Obama, the foreign leaders remained silent at the Summit and tossed the information they had planned to discuss regarding Iran’s latest deceit.

President Sarkozy has been the most vocal about his disapproval of Obama’s foreign policy and handling of the current nuclear crises. In Sarkozy’s remarks which he mockingly called the “dream” of disarmament, he said:

“I support America’s ‘extended hand.’ But what have these proposals for dialogue produced for the international community? Nothing but more enriched uranium and more centrifuges. And last but not least, it has resulted in a statement by Iranian leaders calling for wiping off the map a Member of the United Nations. What are we to do? What conclusions are we to draw? At a certain moment hard facts will force us to make decisions.”

How can it be that the President of France is showing more strength and resolve than the President of the United States? Not to mention this is happening while our leader is off lobbying for the Olympics to be held in Chicago in what seems to be either an effort to ignore the crises at hand or blatant proof of just how far in over his head Obama is with foreign affairs. He even sees fit to “sit down” with the Iranian leader to discuss solutions to their nuclear rebellion. It is an outrage and an embarrassment that our President is conducting himself in this manner, he really needs to get a backbone and fast. It is a sad day when over seas news publishes references to the weakness of America’s leadership; which is what I will leave you with, the words of how we are now seen. As stated in the Telegraph, “Barack Obama’s weakness on the world stage will inevitably lead to the decline of America as a superpower. That’s not “smart power” – it’ is a policy of defeat.”
