Silverfiddle gave me an idea for this article

Silverfiddle responded to my sarcastic post about Obama's nuclear summit and proposed the following idea:
The first thing the new Republican president should do in January 2013 is invite the Polish president and the Israeli prime minister to a big state dinner, publicly embrace them and tell them how sorry he is for the embarrassing behavior of the clueless ass-clown who preceded him.

I can only say that I agree with him, and I would include Honduras, Czech Republic and Britain in the list of guests in the White House (these are the US allies that our Marxist-Leninist in Chief managed to insult in the last 1 year - there will most likely will be more 3 years from now). I believe it would be quite appropriate that our next president would apologise to our allies for the arrogance of our previous "regime".

After that, the new president should invite Palestinian Authority, Iran, Venezuela and Russia and tell them that he is deeply sorry that his predecessor left the wrong impression of America. I think the quote from the movie "Casino" perfectly illustrates the conversation that should take place between the tyrants of these rogue regimes and the US. I believe our next president should be able to use the street language in order to convey to our enemies how America feels about the current situation.

Banker to gangster: What are you gonna do, strong-arm me?

Gangster and Banker both laughing.

Gangster - You know, I think you've gotten the wrong impression about me. I think, in all fairness I should explain to you exactly what it is that I do. Tomorrow morning I'll get up nice and early, take a walk to the bank and walk in and see, and, uh, if you don't have my money for me I'll crack your f*ckin' head wide open in front of everybody. And just about the time that I'm comin' out of jail hopefully you'll be comin' out of your coma. And guess what? I'll split your f*ckin' head open again. 'Cause I'm f*ckin' stupid. I don't give a fuck about jail. That's my business. That's what I do. We know what you do. You fuck people out of money and get away with it.

Banker: - You can't talk to me like that.

Gangster: Hey, you fat Irish prick! You put my money to sleep.- Get my money, or I'll put your brain to sleep.

Gangster’s friend: - Sam!

Gangster: Never mind Sam. This is personal. I'll be there in the morning. You can try me, Fatso. You f*ckin' try me. You think he got the point?

And if you think this is too much, let me remind you how Harry Truman treated Stalin's lackey, Vyacheslav Molotov in 1945:

"Harry S. Truman who was not afraid to use the bomb or to get tough with the Russians. In becoming president following Franklin Roosevelt's death on April 12, 1945, Truman knew nothing about the bomb and little about foreign policy, but he was capable of independent and decisive action. As the British historian Paul Johnson described him: "The new President, Harry Truman, was not a member of the wealthy, guilt-ridden East Coast establishment and had none of Roosevelt's fashionable progressive fantasies. He was ignorant, but he learned fast; his instincts were democratic and straightforward."
Determined to push his point on Poland as a symbol of Soviet-American relations, Truman had his first personal exchange, tart and brusque, with Vyacheslav M. Molotov, the Soviet Foreign Minister, in Washington on April 22 and 23, 1945. The President used "words of one syllable" to convey his insistence that Poland be "free and independent." 

"I have never been talked to like that in my life," Molotov complained.

"Carry out your agreements, and you won't get talked to like that," his host retorted.

Thanks for the kindly mention!

I agree with you on the extra guests. Invite Colombia as well. They've been holding out the hand of friendship on a free trade agreement for years, only to be continually stymied congressional democrats who hate the idea of a free, conservative country in our "back yard."

And once again, you highlight a fundamental truth: Power is all that matters in international relations, and the bad guys can smell a patsy a mile a way.

President Truman, was not an Ivy League grad, but he was way smarter that the current White House Occupant.
