Foreign policy - B. Hussein Obambi style

SMH - Richard Danzig, who served as navy secretary under the former president Bill Clinton and is tipped to become national security adviser in an Obama White House, told a foreign policy conference in Washington that the future of US strategy in the war on terrorism should follow a lesson from the pages of Winnie the Pooh, which can be shortened to: if it is causing you too much pain, try something else. He told the Centre for a New American Security: "Winnie the Pooh seems to me to be a fundamental text on national security."

Mr Danzig spelled out the need for the US to change its foreign policy towards the Arab world by reading a paragraph from chapter one of the children's classic, which says: "Here is Edward Bear, coming downstairs now, bump, bump, bump on the back of his head … sometimes he thinks there really is another way if only he could stop bumping a minute and think about it." In a departure from President George Bush's view that the war on terrorism can be won, Mr Danzig, a Pentagon adviser on bioterrorism, said that while the West could defeat individual terrorist groups and plots, it can never remove the threat posed by nuclear proliferation or bioterrorism.
Mr Danzig said he learnt much from interviews with the jailed Aum Shinrikyo terrorists who released sarin nerve gas on the Tokyo metro in 1995. He said one terrorist told him: "We have been raised on a theory of superheroes. We all want to be like Luke Skywalker … when someone comes along, like Asahara, the head of the cult, and presents himself as a messiah … that is for us extraordinarily evocative." He added: "The parallels with al-Qaeda are obvious." He went on to say: "One of the best books I've read on terrorism in recent years was not about terrorism at all, It's Bill Buford's book Among The Thugs, which is a description of soccer violence in Britain.
What do you say to this folks, I mean what the hell! The guy is running for the President of the most powerful country on this planet and his national security adviser is going to rely on a fictional, friendly bear with a penchant for honey, 'the force' and drunken British yobs for foreign policy ideas. No wonder the world's tyrants, terrorists, slimeballs, welfare queens and all such related filth are rootin' for B. Hussein Obambi. And leftists insist that Bush is the idiot.
