With friends like these . . .
Is it better to be President Obama's "friend" or something else?
Consider three countries: Britain, Israel, or Iran.
With whom has Obama taken a harder line? With whom has Obama been tougher? Whom does Obama worry more about insulting?
We could probably debate all these questions with arguments pro and con. Think about that. Should that be the case?
I suppose the President might say that all of these nations are entitled to equal treatment, equal consideration, and equal deference.
As we consider what is happening in Iran and what is to come with Iran, North Korea, or even Russia, that type of world view should cause us great concern.
All nations are not equal. Obama should treat the world as it is, not how he wishes it to be.
