It Isn't Fair

Reader comment on item: Avigdor Lieberman's Brilliant Debut

Submitted by Arlinda (United States), Apr 24, 2009 at 19:19

It isn't fair that Israel has both Netanyahu and Lieberman and we have Obama and Clinton.

It isn't fair that Israel has a seasoned and tough and brilliant Prime Minister and we have an inexperienced, weak and ill informed President. In addition it isn't fair that Israel has a Foreign Minister whose stellar speech was so incredibly logical and courageous that it made his audience so uncomfortable that they had to think while we have a Secretary of State who is so uncomfortable she can't think.

I deny our ally in the Middle East nothing nor do I begrudge them their leadership. I do envy them their leadership. I am stunned at the mind boggling logic and brilliance of Mr. Lieberman's presentation, strategy and solution all of which are right in front of the entire world but we are blind and cannot see. By identifying the crux of the problem, he then stragegizes, plans, and lays out a resolution..

After framing and identifying from where the root of the problem lies, Mjr. Lieberman strategizes and identifies a new "World Order" of the irrational and stateless players. He brings to light new priorities and the necessity of defeating the extremist entities whose goals are to undermine "World Order." He shows us where to concentrate our forces Pakistand, Afghanistan, Iran and Iraq. We must put aside the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. It is a distraction. He singles out Egypt and expects them to act as an equal partner in the journey for peace. He goes there and they come to Israel ... perfect diplomacy and very real diplomacy.

He even dismisses the hackneyed, time consuming ridiculous use of the word "peace" and instead concentrates on real results by implementing what has already be signed and enacted by the UN ... the Road Map. It must be followed impeccably ... no concessions which are an Arab staple. First the agreement is signed and then the real negotiations begin. It's called going nowhere fast.

Peace requires a readines and a preparedness for war. A strong nation is a nation respected. A weak concillatory apologetic nation is a prey. Peace and submission are not synonymous

To paraphrase the Israeli Foreign Minister Great Leaders have come back and Israel's got both of them.

America on the other hand is experimenting with the diplomacy of crawling, bowing and submission because our president believes in the Martian Theory of Diplomacy.
