The Cold War Is Back

Want to know what Russia thinks of Obama’s global message of “can’t we all get along?” Putin (soon to come back as President to look Obama in the eyes) sees an easy target. President Medved has now stepped up to Poland’s border with threats of its missiles aimed at our defense weapons.
Saudi Arabia has more options now, more Russian ties.

China’s nervous.

Want to know what the Iranians think of Obama? They’re thrilled! They have sent congratulations to Obama for the first time since the American hostages had been captured in 1979.

In a step that will further increase Israel’s anxiety about Obama, Tehran announced last night that President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad had broken a 29-year tradition and sent his congratulations to the President-elect – the first time an Iranian leader has offered such wishes since the 1979 Islamic Revolution. Ahmadinejad congratulated the Democrat on ‘attracting the majority of voters in the election’.

He said he hoped Obama will ‘use the opportunity to serve the (American) people and leave a good name for history’ during his term in office. Iran and the U.S. have had no formal diplomatic relations since 1979 when militant Iranian students held 52 Americans captive 444 days.

I’m sure Barack Hussein Obama sent his thank you for the warm greetings immediately back. If he had a common sense he would immediately renounce the Iranian dictators welcome. But ‘ Citizen of the World’ has such a nice ring to it – He’s the one they’ve all been waiting for.

Oh yeah, the world is going to love the United States now.
