Saudis Warn of Split With US

the real message here is that we are already no longer on good working terms

It is remarkable that al-Faisal wrote this in the New York Times.  Why on earth should is be so public?  If the United States had a working relationship with Saudi Arabia, this would never have seen the light of day.  President Obama has estranged more allies in four (good Lord, THREE)  years than the previous thirty years of American government.  Mark my words: the real message here is that we are already no longer on good working terms, and it has little to do with Israel, and everything to do with the way the President treats allies who are insufficiently worshipful of His Serene Excellency Colonel Obama.

WASHINGTON — The United States must back a Palestinian bid for UN recognition of statehood or risk becoming “toxic” in the Arab world and forcing a split with ally Saudi Arabia, a top Saudi diplomat warned Monday.

If Washington imposes its veto when the Palestinians seek to become the 194th member state of the United Nations then “Saudi Arabia would no longer be able to cooperate with America in the same way it historically has,” former Saudi ambassador to the United States, Prince Turki al-Faisal wrote.

He warned in a commentary in the The New York Times that a US veto would see American influence decline, “Israeli security undermined and Iran will be empowered, increasing the chances of another war in the region.”

Is this the Obama foreign policy?  Cut ties with ARAB friends in the region to unbind their hands toward Israel?  Or just more incompetence?  Can’t have it both ways.  These serial failures are either a long line of mistakes or a long line of anti-American actions.

Obama is like a man who has tried to leap a canyon in two short hops

My own view is that President Obama is like a man who has tried to leap a canyon in two short hops.  Down, down, down he goes.  Neither fish nor fowl, he can now neither fly nor swim, and even the Saudis will not put up with his shenanigans any longer.  They are dropping him like a hot rock smeared with HIV.

Even Democrats are slowly seeing that their only hope for survival is to cut ties with this flaming idiot.  Everybody else is, because a lot of people across the world know a damned sight more about self-preservation  in 2011 than 53% of American voters did in 2008. Obama has said so many things which America should not say have to say, that now we are hearing things that America should not have to hear.
