…meanwhile on the other side of the planet, the stars of the “Obaman Empire” are sinking and sinking and sinking… and this robotic speech of B. H. Obama doesn’t help either.
40 sec for a tragedy?
“President Obama devoted only 40 seconds to the shooting down of the Malaysian airline, his first statement to the world following the news.”
With Jupiter around, it would habe been 20 Min. But, with Saturn around, he is cheap on words and cold on emotions.
“The current White House doesn’t understand how US fecklessness in Syria can reverberate to Ukraine, and from there to the South China Sea, and the Americas, and Gaza and elsewhere in the Middle East.“
Don’t worry, current White House, Saturn will make sure soon, that you DO understand.
This weak and timid President talks big… and does nothing: A devastating attack on Obama by a top Washington insider
- Clark S. Judge believes Obama’s reaction to the tragedy was ‘disconnected’
- Immediately ‘reverted to script’ to praise his administration
- Former adviser to Ronald Reagan says it confirms ‘chaos’ of foreign policy
At a political event in Wilmington, Delaware, on Thursday, President Obama devoted only 40 seconds to the shooting down of the Malaysian airline, his first statement to the world following the news.
His emotionless reference to the attack as ‘a terrible tragedy’ seemed disconnected from the horrific moment, particularly as he immediately reverted to script to praise his administration and criticise Republicans.
It was a far cry from President Reagan’s 1983 fierce denunciation of the Soviet shooting down of a Korean airliner as a ‘crime against humanity’.

Response: President Obama’s emotionless reference to the attack as ‘a terrible tragedy’ seemed disconnected from the horrific moment
But it only confirmed the chaos into which US foreign policy has descended since the summer of 2012 when reporters at a White House briefing asked Mr Obama about the security of chemical weapons in the Syrian stockpile.
The commander in chief went beyond safety and said: ‘We have been very clear to the Assad regime … that a red line for us is [when] we start seeing a whole bunch of chemical weapons moving around or being utilised.’
The term ‘red line’ is the kind of clear, emphatic language major powers use only when they are prepared to back words with action.
