everyone could have predicted that the russians and the chinese would not cooperate. only fools would have thought that these traditional adversaries would change what they consider their self interests just for the sake of obama. one would have thought that after apologising for america on numerous occasions and encouraging enemies, that people would realise that the u.s. would further erode its power. obama has made no friends among traditional allies, while relentlessly courting sworn enemies. the attempt to blame israel for obama's lack of vision and diplomatic skills is odious and frankly counterproductive.
