No Respect For Obama From Iran Navy
Not long ago I drew ISIS as the Rodney Dangerfield of jihad. But now President Obama is turning out to be the Rodney Dangerfield of the rest of the world. Nobody much seems to respect him. Or fear him.
Just this past week China snubbed the president during an airport greeting. Then Russian jets buzzed U.S. military aircraft over the Black Sea. And finally the Iran Navy said thanks for the ransom money by harassing U.S. ships with glorified jet skis.
Oh, and the president of the Philippines called him a son-of-a-bitch.
Charles Krauthammer says the the president’s “high minded lectures about global norms and demands that others live up to their “international obligations” are no longer amusing. Now they’re irritating.”
He notes that Obama told CNN that he warned Chinese President Xi to behave in the South China Sea “or there would be consequences.”
Red line anyone?
