Our Non-Entity U.N. Ambassador Perfect For Obama
Foreign Policy: Our current U.N. ambassador is like the schoolmarm who never gained control over her unruly class. Even when she does talk tough, it doesn’t penetrate the noise.Does anyone know who Ambassador Susan Rice is? Certainly no one remembers anything she has ever said during her more than 3-1/2 years as America’s voice within that corrupt nest of vipers in the Turtle Bay section of New York City.
Last Wednesday, in a quintessential example, the ambassador complained that terror state Iran was not being helpful in its dealings with terror state Syria.
“Iran is definitely part of the problem in Syria,” Rice said. “It is supporting, aiding and abetting the Assad regime materially and in many other ways, and it has shown no readiness to contribute constructively.” Can anyone imagine the late, great Jeane Kirkpatrick uttering the understatement that Moscow was showing “no readiness to contribute constructively”?
No, Kirkpatrick played audio evidence of the Soviet empire shooting down a Korean airliner filled with innocents to the Security Council; she boasted of finally removing the “kick me” sign from America’s back; she wrote articles about “dictatorships and double standards,” namely the left’s refusal to see crucial differences between authoritarianism and totalitarianism.
Can anyone imagine ex-U.N. Ambassador John Bolton whining in frustration like Rice? He was too busy pointing out the U.N.’s hypocrisy in denouncing imaginary U.S. human rights abuses while being dominated by undemocratic regimes who slaughter their citizens.
