U.S. Continues To Isolate Itself – Obama To New NATO Secretary General: “Drop Dead”

The snub could be the latest example of the White House’s strained ties with European allies over the proposed EU army, which could effectively weaken the continent’s reliance on the United States.   – News Link

Obama refuses to meet with the new NATO Secretary General, Jens Stoltenberg.   Naturally the U.S. mainstream media is covering up this story.  But apparently it’s part of a long tradition which has been adhered to by U.S. Presidents as a way to demonstrate commitment to its NATO treaty obligations.

As Sputnik (link at the top) reports:  “The Bush administration held a firm line that if the NATO secretary general came to town, he would be seen by the president…so as not to diminish his stature or authority,” Kurt Volker, former US representative to NATO, told Bloomberg.

The Obama administration, in what can only be described as boorish juvenilism, is evidently upset that it’s traditional European lapdogs are not jumping at the command to send troops to join U.S. troops in Ukraine so that Obama can refer to the military units in Ukraine as “ U.S. NATO” military forces.

This is the perfect way for Obama to live up to the Nobel Peace Prize he was given shortly after is first election to the White House.   But the fact of the matter is that the U.S. is increasingly isolating itself from the rest of the world.   Unfortunately, an isolated U.S. is a very dangerously nuclear-armed U.S.   This ain’t my country, folks…

  1. I didn’t vote for Obama but I like where we are going. The Empire has been going on too long – time to take a breather, focus on domestic and quit bombing other countries.

    1. I’m not sure that Obama’s doing anything to try to diminish the empire or the empire-like quality of U.S. foreign policy. If circumstances force a diminishing of the U.S. empire despite Obama’s actions, should he get any credit?

  2. Reality has a habit of biting you in the ass!
    The United States continues to decline, dying of arrogance, greed, paranoia and social injustice. As her death throes drive her to ever more dangerous (test firing an ICBM while threatening to arm the Ukraine) feats of brinkmanship.
    The leadership continues to dissent from reality. Its futile to try to use facts or data as evidence when attempting to influence their decision making. They are cognitive dissidents with a belief based upon faith. Facts be damned, they double down, sticking with their beliefs regardless of all evidence to the contrary.
