“Obama’s Successful Foreign Failure”


Norman Podhoretz


Thanks to my friend Bob Lavender for calling my attention to this excellent column by the great Norman Podhoretz:





New Testament 195
His most famous line from the 1964 Republican convention in San Francisco
"ISIS opens new front in Egypt"
"The science of sleeping in, and why you probably shouldn't"

    Just what we need. More war mongering.

      I’m puzzled who you think is warmongering here. Podhoretz says nothing in the article about whether he thinks an intervention is called for. I am myself simultaneously appalled by Obama’s foreign policy, or lack thereof, while having deep misgivings about any intervention.

    The hypothesis that Obama is intentionally undermining America’s power would help explain his efforts to promote open homosexuality in the military as an excuse to suppress Christians. Conservative Christians have been the main demographic volunteering for the armed forces since the draft ended, but Obama is making the military a hostile environment for the main source of volunteers. He will reduce the force and transform it from one focused on victory into another social welfare organization.
