President Obama unveiled a radical shift in American military doctrine last week that ought to be known as "the Obama Doctrine: the embrace of unilateral, pre-emptive disarmament."

Is this the new so called Progressive "Realism" foreign policy? :lol:

"the Obama Doctrine: the embrace of unilateral, pre-emptive disarmament."

You're going to have to do better than that.

I'm wonder if progressive "realists" are happy with Obama's posture on Iran, Syria and Israel. Bob probably.

Yeah. Me, too.

listening to a few bob wright podcasts on israel, iran and nuclear policy, i bet this is finally a dream come true for him to see progressive thoughts and ideas becoming WH policy.

Policies come and go. We'll see where we are, and where we seem to be going, when the next guy picks up the reigns.

is it really smart for obama to tie our success in fighting al queda in afghanistan/iraq and dealing w/ iran to the middle east peace process between israel and the palestinians?

is it really israel who is against peace or a 2-state solution?

is this the so called progressive "realism" that i keep hearing about on bhtv? calling daniel levy. calling bob wright. they need to defend this in their diavlogs.

if there's a good time to defend progressive "realism", the time is now!
