Well now I see on Drudge that Obama is sending loads of defensive missiles – plus two extra warships with missile defense capabilities – to the Middle East to help defend against the sort of attacks from Iran that Russia was going to help prevent.

Well golly gee whiz. Won’t people in DC express shock when Ahemdinijad says exactly the same things about missile defense in Qatar, UAE, Bahrain, Kuwait, and the Persian Gulf as the Russian leaders said about missile defense in Poland and the Czech Republic?

I’m sure Robert Gibbs will be jumping through hoops tomorrow to explain this inconsistency. Anything Bush did related to defense was just a horrible act because it “made them hate us more” and raised the threat of war. What happened to giving diplomacy a chance? He’s given Iran endless chances and they’ve laughed him off every time. Obama hasn’t even been willing to go the sanctions route seriously. How can he take this action without UN approval? A couple years ago that was called “cowboy diplomacy” wasn’t it?
