England is not one of my favorite places anymore, because of the raging antisemitism that characterizes her politics and her street. Nevertheless, she is our ally and has been our staunch ally for more than a century. For Obama to abandon her over the Falklands is disgusting. At Power Line, in a few words, John nails Obama’s policy vis a vis England (emphasis mine):
So, once again, the Obama administration has sold Great Britain, formerly our #1 ally, down the river, along with the inhabitants of the Falklands, whose opinions would seem to count for something. We are past the point where anyone could doubt that the Obama administration’s hostility toward the U.K. is intentional. Obama seems to have substituted personal pathology for national policy.
I’m careful about calling someone evil, which I think is in an entirely separate class from misguided or ignorant or any other negative adjectives. With this kind of excuse for foreign policy emanating from the White House, though, I’m increasingly inclined to imagine that appellation attached to Obama’s name.
