The Obama administration is determined to use its final six months in office to take a series of executive actions to advance the nuclear agenda the president has advocated since his college days. It’s part of Obama’s late push to polish a foreign policy legacy that is plagued by challenges on several other fronts.

President Obama announced his drive to reduce the role of nuclear weapons and eventually rid the world of them in his first major foreign policy speech, in Prague in 2009. In his first years, he achieved some successes, such as the New START treaty with Russia, the Nuclear Security Summits and the controversial Iran deal. But progress waned in the past year as more pressing crises commanded the White House’s attention. Now, the president is considering using the freedom afforded a departing administration to cross off several remaining items on his nuclear wish list.

  • while the story did not specify the changes that obama might want to implement, given that he is a determined, petulant and self-infatuated fool, concern is well-advised.

    a smarter man, a wiser man would reflect on a record of foreign policy disasters and miscalculations, from the “russian reset,” to the iran capitulation, to the disastrous regime change in libya, to the failure to protect the ambassador in benghazi, to multiple inexcusable failures in syria and yemen, to his sympathy and support for the muslim brotherhood in egypt, to his abandonment of allies in east asia (remember the big “pivot”?), to support for the castro regime in cuba, to the abandonment of dissidents in iran and in cuba, to obama’s subversion and, ultimately, reversal of American progress in iraq and afghanistan, etc.

    it would never occur to obama to reflect upon his disgraceful record. no, for obama, it’s always the pose of lofty certitude, confident condescension, the posture of impatient righteousness. obama is a man devoid of insight and wisdom. he does not know much but he has his toxic opinions.

    those are a brief few words about obama’s foreign policy. obama’s management of domestic affairs presents another record of failure.
