Open thread: Obama’s Cairo II speech

posted at 10:32 am on May 19, 2011 by Ed Morrissey

At 11:40 today, Barack Obama will give what some are calling the Cairo II speech, a follow-up address on the Middle East and the US backing for popular, representative government in the region.  His Cairo I speech was generally considered a success, although ultimately forgettable, mainly because Obama himself failed its first test in Tehran within days of its delivery — and that after the White House specifically tied the Green Revolution uprising (that it refused to support for months) to the speech.  Now Obama will once again address the issue of freedom, liberty, and peace in a speech, this time perhaps aimed more for American voters than Middle Eastern audiences, but will he live up to his own rhetoric, or again ignore freedom-loving Iranians (and Syrians)?

Politico offers a list of five questions about the speech today:

  • How far on Syria will Obama go? — I suspect he’ll only go as far as the sanctions announced yesterday, which Andrew Malcolm helpfully reminds us were preceded by weeks of warning to get funds out of the US.  If he calls for Assad’s resignation, he’ll end up looking impotent, as he has no real means to affect it, but without it, he will leave Syrian dissidents wondering why Hosni Mubarak had to go but not Bashar Assad.  Politico’s Josh Gerstein thinks Obama will try to split the difference: “Obama’s formulation could hint at Assad’s exit, while stopping just short of demanding his ouster.”
  • How much will he say on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and how specific will he be? – He’ll probably want to say plenty, but will restrain himself.  Benjamin Netanyahu is on his way to the US for an important summit, and the union of Fatah and Hamas has more or less scuttled Obama’s plans to get Netanyahu and Mahmoud Abbas on the same page.  Obama is facing pressure in the region to start pressuring both sides for movement, but Fatah’s alignment with Hamas has all but scotched any chance of an agreement.
  • Will Obama Unveil a Marshall Plan for the Arab world? - Oh, I’m sure Obama will highlight new aid proposals, but no one has the money for a Marshall Plan any longer.  I read a rather cogent dismissal of the concept yesterday, but I’ll be darned if I can remember where.  The reason the Marshall Plan worked in Europe after World War II is because Europe was already industrialized; they just needed recapitalization.  We’ve been doing Marshall Plans in Africa and now Afghanistan for decades to no avail.
  • Will Obama lay out a uniform doctrine, or improvise? - Wasn’t this the White House that snorted derisively at the concept of “doctrines” during the Arab Spring?  Consistency would be nice, but this administration has spent the last several months playing it by ear.  Without a significant change in personnel, I doubt they’ll produce a “doctrine” today — but that then opens Obama to criticism of failing to deliver on expectations with major policy speeches, a failure which has become a habit.
  • What’s next? – More speeches?  This could be another expectations problem for Obama.  In the wake of his Cairo speech, what was next was an utter failure to support popular, democratic demands for reform in Iran.  Don’t be surprised if the same thing is “next” after Cairo II, in Iran and in Syria.

And he can justifiy it by saying unlike America Israel’s expansion ocurred because they were attacked. Not because of Manifest destiny.

This was a very stupid geopolitcal move by Obama. He has opened up not just the USA but every country that has ever won land and territory during war to calls of the defeated for a do over.

These are what AIPAC is calling the key quotes from the prsident’s speech:

“Palestinians have walked away from talks.” … “For the Palestinians, efforts to delegitimize Israel will end in failure. Symbolic actions to isolate Israel at the United Nations in September won’t create an independent state. Palestinian leaders will not achieve peace or prosperity if Hamas insists on a path of terror and rejection.” …”No peace can be imposed”

This fool’s “high-toned rhetoric” supports ideals of self-determination and opportunity to ME nations in turmoil that he constantly undermines in our own nation.

What he has done to Israel in this speech re the 1967 borders throws down the gauntlet about whose ideals he and his supporters he intends to support.

Any Jew now supporting Obama in light of his supporting Israel going back to what are in effect the 1949 military armistice lines must literally have a death wish.

Pearl Harbor, Midway, recapture all islands in the Pacific, Phillipines, Marshalls, etc. We gave MOST of them back…
We kept a few, Guam, Diego Garcia, etc. Blew up one – Bimini atoll.

Sure it happened all the time, ‘usually’ when the conquering nation was sliding into ruin.

Can we impeach this Bastard now?

Thanks for saying what I wanted to say, but didn’t for fear bad language would get me banned.

Sorry, my fingers were out of control after that speech.

How about the Muslims give back all the lands they took from the infidels and go back to their pre- war borders of the 7th century.

Are thier any numbers still available?

heshtesh on May 19, 2011 at 1:49 PM

My question is, at what number are you people going to DO something about it instead of complaining?

Not just FUBO either, but the whole rotten nest of them.

orbitalair on May 19, 2011 at 1:54 PM

Arab icicles.

I triple dare you to name one people who are free, due to Obama.

Let’s see now, that would be the alinskeyites/socialists/communists/marxists, etc. that reside here in our own great country.

Do something? Do what? What is it exactly that I should be doing that I am not already doing?

Unfortunately, many secular Jews in the U.S. are liberals first and Jews second.

ON RECORD… RIGHT NOW. I want to hear EVERY GOP candidate comment on Obama’s speech. (and every person they are “begging” to run)

I would bet that Christie & Syrian-Daniels would not have a problem with it.

stenwin77 on May 19, 2011 at 1:06 PM

Not to mention the New Black Panthers Party members.

But I guess that’s redundant with alinskeyites/socialists/communists/marxists

UltimateBob on May 19, 2011 at 3:54 PM

Please explain the “Syrian” part. Thanks ahead.

We know about the exemptions to the Obamacare, the teachers’ unions and etc.

However, I’m looking for nations, entire lands, and you guys know it. The Arab ‘spring’ is a big lie.
