The wheedle and the damage done

The advent of the Obama administration has brought an epidemic of provocations in Third World hellholes. From Tehran, to Havana, to Hanoi, to Karachi, to Buenos Aires, and more, we have have suffered provocations intended to teach us a lesson. It’s never been more dangerous to be an American abroad. In the editorial “The tyrants lunge,” IBD provides a chronological account of what has happened ever since Iran put the three American hiker hostages on trial and Obama did nothing.
JOHN adds: The Obama administration is indeed pathetic, as the IBD editorial shows. But, hey, there is one country Obama dares stand up to! “In sharp reversal, U.S. agrees to rebuke Israel in Security Council.”
