Pelosi er vor tids Neville Chamberlain

With her trip to Syria, Nancy Pelosi achieved two things: She undercut her own credibility in Washington, and she spotlighted what is wrong with the Democrats’ approach to national security.

The spectacle of Pelosi making nice with Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad in Damascus and accepting at face value his claim that he is ready to “resume the peace process” with Israel had a large portion of official Washington tittering.

At the same time, Syrian authorities were telling the local press that there had been no change in its position. And Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert told Pelosi that “a number of Senate and House members who recently visited Damascus received the impression that despite the declarations of Bashar al-Assad, there is no change in the position of his country regarding a possible peace process with Israel.”

Pelosi’s Charade
Moreover, Pelosi misrepresented Israel’s position to Assad, announcing that she had delivered a message from Olmert that “Israel was ready to engage in peace talks” with Syria. Olmert quickly issued a statement denying that.

“Ms. Pelosi not only misrepresented Israel’s position, but was virtually alone in failing to discern that Mr. Assad’s words were mere propaganda,” an editorial in Washington Post said. The editorial added that “Ms. Pelosi’s attempt to establish a shadow presidency is not only counterproductive, it is foolish.”

While that is certainly true, the specter of Pelosi naively chatting with Assad and announcing that she had helped achieve a diplomatic breakthrough also highlights all that is wrong with the Democrats’ approach to foreign police today.

Syria hosts the exiled leadership of Hamas, as well as other Palestinian radical groups, and is a major supplier of funds to Hezbollah. Syria is also believed to be involved in the assassination of Lebanese political figures and allowing its territory to be used by jihadists fighting against the United States-led coalition and the coalition-backed government in Iraq.

History Repeats

Pelosi’s willingness to undercut the president and accept the word of the chief of state of a sponsor of terrorism is on a par with the Democrats’ effort to set a timetable for fighting the war in Iraq.

“Speaker Pelosi is the Neville Chamberlain of our time,” said Brad Blakeman, a Republican strategist who was an aide in the Bush White House. “Cowering to and appeasing the dictator of a terrorist state was a disgrace to the high office she holds. The Sryians used this visit to validate their bad behavior by propagandizing the whole visit and her anti-war stance.”

The Pelosi visit underscores that, when it comes to dealing with our enemies, the Democrats live in a dream world. Yet when another terrorist attack occurs in the U.S., they will be the first to say President Bush did not do enough to protect the country.

Dette er med til at vise, hvad vi har i vente, hvis demokraterne vinder det næste præsidentvalg. Knæfald for islamismen, terrorismen og vestens fjender som udenrigspolitik. Et EU som ikke kan blive enig om noget som helst og et USA uden no….. Hvem mon klapper i hænderne?

    “Det gør islamisterne.”

    Helt enig. Så er de sikre på at sejre. Allerede nu er det meste af Europa ved at blive islamiseret, hvilket vil sige at der kun er USA tilbage til at forsvare de vestlige frihedsværdier. Med en “Dhimmikrat” i det Hvide Hus falder denne sidste bastion.

    Selvom den danske befolkning og dele af den danske elite har vist en vis modstandskraft mod den tiltagende islamisering, så er Danmark trods alt et lille land, der ikke kan gøre noget hvis de store vestlige lande falder. Så ryger vi med i købet, desværre.

  3. Det er meget udmaerket at Pelosi har fundet paa at rejse ned til Syrien og grinagtiggoer sig selv, sit parti og dets farlige og utopiske verdensanskulese.

    Det vil tils sidst koste stemmer. Hvis 1938er generationen har faaet blod paa tanden og tror at nu skal de lave flere rejser til verdens mord- og torturstater og foere amerikansk skyggepolitik, maa vi haabe at de goer det for saa kan Republikanerne meget nemmere vinde valget i 2008.

    Saa er det bare med at faa pakket armani-kufferten og komme afsted.
    Det er dejligt for en gangs skyld selv at have nogle nyttige idioter.

  4. Hun må vel have kalkuleret af sådanne besøg har en vis effekt på hendes vælgertilslutning. Det bliver interessant at se hvordan vælgerne reagerer.

    Det er beskæmmende at hun ifører sig den kvindeundertrykkende hijab. Det er en hån imod alle de kvinder som må bære klædet eller lide døden.

  5. pelosi& venner,totale idioter,1oo +dage,(ved magten ,as the speaker of the house),she/they,har ikke gjort noget somhelst af hvad de sagde/ville gøre,for at “bedre” ting her i landet,idet mindste sådan ser jeg det!!.

  6. ad 6. Pelosi er USA’s svar på Marianne Jelved.
    Ja, det er vel anstændighed, det drejer sig om.
    Jeg kan undertiden glæde mig over, at jeg er ret gammel.

  7. Ligeså usselt Chamberlains eftermæle ser ud, ligeså klogt og fremsynet fremstår Winston Churchills eftermæle.
    Han valgte kampen, fordi han anså den for nødvendig.
    Det bør vi også gøre.
