Obama trying to undermine the Israeli Government?
Obama gunning for a right wing government of an ally in an attempt to make them more conciliatory/left wing (which has never worked for Israel and has only energized Hamas, Hezbollah, PLO, etc. terrorists) seems to be deeply misguided policy...
I know they're enemies so it's harder... but what about Iran? North Korea? Sudan?
If you want to make a principled stand... why isn't the Chinese government a target, especially in light of the fact that they're cutting back on treasury purchases, which actually gives us a self-interested reason as well as a principled one?
We have to see how this plays out and what political game Obama's trying to play, exactly... it's hard to see it as gunning for peace, because these kind of moves have never, ever worked before and conditions haven't changed. Temporary peace? who knows.
