Obama's Kryptonite

Tags: , ,

The chink in his armour has arrived... it's name is Pakistan.

Bloggers weigh in, one by one - Daniel Larison: The Obama Way: Lob Missiles At Mountainous Parts Of Asia, Hope For The Best

Rick Moran: If anything proves this guy is not ready to be president - ever - it’s the idea that we’d invade Pakistan without the permission of the Pakistani government... Ken Prescott: Obama's strategy:

1. Dialogue with our sworn enemies
2. Declare war on our allies and coalition partners

Hmm. Now, I have not attended the Naval War College, the Army War College, the Air Force Air Warfare College, or the Marine Corps Amphibious Warfare School, so I'm just a layman . . . but the above does not look like a winning strategy.

Clayton Cramer: “The major selling point that Obama has to the billionaires is that he opposed the Iraq War. I think he just threw away that advantage.”

Sen. Obama shocks the nation

DesertLover:
Obama is basically recommending the same actions that GWB has been following for years … he’s just changing the names of the countries involved … sounds pretty wishy-washy to me … can’t even come up with an original approach!

COMMENTING FEES
Per comment rate: $2
Payable by either clicking the BitCoin "tip me" button or the PayPal "donate" button in the sidebar.

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
