Obama may detest the British, but that doesn't stop him from following the British foreign policy of the 19th century -- which was best articulated by Lord Palmerston: "We have no eternal allies ... our interests are eternal and perpetual." That would make it okay, in his mind, for Obama to betray an old ally like Israel. The big difference between Obama and Palmerston, though, is that Palmerston was willing to dump allies in the interest of the Bitish Empire, while Obama is willing to dump Israel in the interest of his re-election. Palmerston -- a statesman -- served the empire of which he was the chief executive; Obama -- a hack politician -- serves himself. For Palmerston, stabbing an ally in the back was a state imperative; for Obama, stabbing an ally in the back is strictly personal. What a moral dwarf this guy is.
