Not content to confine his most heinous mistakes to domestic policy alone, Barack Hussein Obama over the weekend reversed decades of foreign policy both for the United States and her allies by allowing Iran to continue work on its nuclear program.

Nuclear non-proliferation has long been a principle of the world community.

Today that principle is dead.

And do not suppose that this is the end. This is only the beginning of the reckoning. This is only the first sip, the first foretaste of a bitter cup, which will be proffered to us year by year unless by a supreme recovery of moral health and martial vigour, we arise again and take our stand for freedom as in the olden time. – Winston S. Churchill October 5, 1938, House of Commons on the Munich Agreement

The nuclear store is now open and anyone wishing to possess such a weapon will be allowed to have it if they just stick at it long enough.

And along the way, Obama has continued to bolster Russian influence, building on their growing prestige that has been given a goose by Obama’s various fumbling in the Middle East, in Egypt, Syria and Libya.

And for good measure we have traded in allies like Israel, Egypt, Turkey and Saudi Arabia.

For whom?
