Update: Sarkozy- Obama’s arrogance could endanger the West; Obama has only spoken to McChrystal ONCE since giving him command in AfPak;Iran test firing missiles; French Embassy provides transcript; French President Sarkozy says ‘Obama dreams of a world without nukes..we live in the real world, not the virtual world. And the real world expects us to take decisions’

Update:9/30 – More on Sarkozy’s views of TOTUS as American media finally begins to cover it, albeit in a small way:

That’s right the President of FRANCE thinks Obama is so arrogant it endangers the West, and I agree! GIRD YOURSELF WORLD. Video courtesy of GatewayPundit, go read their entire post!

Update: Just when you thought it couldn’t get any worse we find while TOTUS is planning his trip to lobby for the Olympics for his buddies in Chicago, he has only spoken to our Commander on the ground in theatre of war ONCE. Yes ONCE. He has done more interviews than GWB/WJC combined and talked ONCE to our General on the ground.

Malfeasance! Abandonment of his PRIMARY DUTIES! Unreal.

WashingtonTimes has the quote from CBS:

The military general credited for capturing Saddam Hussein and killing the leader of al-Qaeda in Iraq says he has only spoken to President Obama once since taking command of Afghanistan.

“I’ve talked to the president, since I’ve been here, once on a VTC ,” General Stanley McChrystal told CBS reporter David Martin in a television interview that aired Sunday.

“You’ve talked to him once in 70 days?” Mr. Martin followed up.

“That is correct,” the general replied.

This revelation comes amid the explosive publication of an classified report written by the general that said the war in Afghanistan “will likely result in failure” if more troops are not added next year. Yet, the debate over health care reform continues to dominate Washington’s political discussions and other issues. On Monday morning the White House announced President Obama will travel to Denmark on Thursday to lobby the International (sp) Olympic Committee to select his hometown of Chicago for the 2016 summer games….

So he has his priorities in order right? And when he steals the Olympics from Lula and Brazil, will Lula bash blue eyed bankers again? GOD BLESS THE TROOPS AND AFGHANI PEOPLE AND GOD SAVE THE WORLD since America is clearly no longer on watch.

Soo sad, we figured he meant AfPak recall his schpiel about how ‘victory’ isnt the right word and it conjures up visions of Emperor Hirohito surrendering, yada yada. he does not WANT to have victory? How can our military function under this leadership? God Bless them.

Update: In order TO BE PERFECTLY CLEAR, Iran test fires missiles following TOTUS at the G20 in Pittsburgh making his position PERFECTLY CLEAR, he is NOT INTERESTED IN VICTORY in Afghanistan Iran. Well I am sure both the terrorists using AfPak as a haven, and the women and girls who have acid thrown on their faces for wanting an education are having diverse WTF reactions to this inexcusable statement. Imagine how the troops and their families feel, God Bless. He is holding the troop request off, doubling down on healthcare a majority of Americans do not believe we can afford, saying he is not interested in victory in Iran, Sarkozy is taking a tougher line than the USA under this leadership. TOTUS said he would listen to the generals on the ground, but he is off on a PR blitz comparing Health care reform to the Civil Rights movement instead of focusing on the number one job of POTUS, keeping America safe at home and abroad. We have troops on the ground Mr President, stop making us look weak please.

…The president opened with a fiery civil rights talk, ticking off racial disparities, calling for greater enforcement of civil rights laws and saying that the new White House Office of Urban affairs is working to address inequality.

Obama said that the large contingent of black community leaders and elected officials was a fulfillment of a promise and generations of struggle in a country where it took nearly 100 years before the first black members of Congress were elected, and where just a century ago lynchings were part of the American experience. He mentioned “strange fruit growing on the poplar trees,” a reference to the song about lynching written by a Jewish high-school teacher from the Bronx and most famously performed by Billie Holiday.

Obama segued from civil rights into health care, ticking off what his plan calls for and borrowing a line from Martin Luther King, saying that the push called for “the fierce urgency of now.”

“We have been waiting for health reform since the days of Teddy Roosevelt … we can’t wait any longer,” he said as the crowd stood and clapped. “Now is the time to enact health care reform in the United States of America.”..

..Reid: Thank you Mr. President, you just mentioned sanctions that have bite, what kinds of sanction, and I know you can’t get into details but what kind of sanctions at all would have bite with Iran, do you really think that any kind of sanctions would have any effect on somebody like Ahmadinejad, secondly some of your advisers today said that this announcement was a victory, do you consider it a victory and if so why didn’t you announce it earlier since you have known since you were President elect?..

Obama flustered by the question,
I’m not interested in victory, I’m interested in solving the problem”…

Update: And in other great news /sarc Iran is testing short medium and long range missiles. They were reeeealllly impressed by TOTUS’ open hand huh? TOTUS AND HIS TROLLZ ARE LIVING IN THEIR OWN PRIVATE IDAHO! GOD BLESS THE WORLD

Update: Special update for the TROLLING OBOTS who deny reality and claim Sarkozy never said this. Here is the speech from the FRENCH EMBASSY. YES SARKOZY SAID EXACTLY WHAT WE REPORTED. PUT ON YOUR BIG GIRL PANTIES OBOTS:

64th United Nations General Assembly
United Nations Security Council Summit on Nuclear Non-Proliferation
Speech by Nicolas Sarkozy, President of the Republic, to the United Nations Security Council

New York, 24 September 2009

France fully supports your initiative to organize this meeting and the efforts you undertook with Russia to reduce nuclear arsenals. But let us speak frankly – we are here to guarantee peace.

We are right to speak of the future, but before the future there is the present, and at present we have two nuclear crises.

The people of the entire world are listening to what we’re saying, to our promises, our commitments and our speeches, but we live in a real world, not a virtual world.

We say: reductions must be made. And President Obama has even said, “I dream of a world without [nuclear weapons].” Yet before our very eyes, two countries are currently doing the exact opposite. Since 2005, Iran has violated five Security Council resolutions. Since 2005, Secretary-General, the international community has called on Iran to engage in dialogue. An offer of dialogue was made in 2005, an offer of dialogue was made in 2006, an offer of dialogue was made in 2007, an offer of dialogue was made in 2008, and another one was made in 2009. President Obama, I support the Americans’ outstretched hand. But what did the international community gain from these offers of dialogue? Nothing. More enriched uranium, more centrifuges, and on top of that, a statement by Iranian leaders proposing to wipe a UN member State off the map.

What are we doing? What conclusions are we drawing? There comes a time when facts are stubborn and decisions must be made.

If we want in the end to have a world without nuclear weapons, let us not accept the violation of international rules.

I understand perfectly well the various positions of the different parties, but all of us may one day be threatened by a neighbour who has obtained a nuclear weapon.

Second, North Korea. It gets even better: they have violated all Security Council deliberations since 1993, and they disregard everything that the international community says, everything. What’s more, they are continuing their ballistic tests.

How can we accept this? What conclusions can we draw from it? I say that at some point, all of us – regardless of our positions in other respects – will have to work together to adopt sanctions and to ensure that the UN Security Council’s decisions are effective.

Finally, I share the opinion expressed by the President of Uganda and the Chinese President with respect to access to civil nuclear energy. We, the nuclear powers, must agree to technology transfers so that everyone can have access to this clean energy. I would add that this will make it possible to avoid deliberate confusion on the part of those who claim to be carrying out nuclear research for civilian purposes while they’re doing it for military purposes.

So, ladies and gentlemen, my dear colleagues, this is what I believe, in full support of what was decided in the resolution and in full support of President Obama’s initiative. What I believe is that by having the courage to strengthen sanctions, together, against countries that violate Security Council resolutions, we will give credibility to our commitment to a world whose future holds fewer nuclear weapons and perhaps, one day, no nuclear weapons./.

Original post after the break:

Yes America, FRANCE is taking the hardline and calling USA naive. We are through the looking glass and it is frankly scary as all get out!! AND Sarkozy jabbed TOTUS for voting PRESENT!! Our media reported..NOT A WORD OF IT!

Big Government h/t Instapundit

...For reasons yet to be determined, the National Post appears to have de-linked their own front page story on their website. Mr. Spillius reported a similar (albeit watered-down) version in the UK’s Telegraph:

Obama: “We must never stop until we see the day when nuclear arms have been banished from the face of the earth.”

Sarkozy: “We live in the real world, not the virtual world. And the real world expects us to take decisions.”

The rest of Sarkozy’s remarks were, well, remarkable:

“President Obama dreams of a world without weapons … but right in front of us two countries are doing the exact opposite.

“Iran since 2005 has flouted five security council resolutions. North Korea has been defying council resolutions since 1993.

“I support the extended hand of the Americans, but what good has proposals for dialogue brought the international community? More uranium enrichment and declarations by the leaders of Iran to wipe a UN member state off the map,” he continued, referring to Israel.

The sharp-tongued French leader even implied that Mr Obama’s resolution 1887 had used up valuable diplomatic energy.

“If we have courage to impose sanctions together it will lend viability to our commitment to reduce our own weapons and to making a world without nuke weapons,” he said.

Mr Sarkozy has previously called the US president’s disarmament crusade “naive.”

No American newspapers seem to have featured Sarkozy’s justifiably derisive remarks about Obama’s naivete regarding the realities of nuclear technology…

Gird your loins Israel. God Bless you. The entire world should gird their loins because the American President is voting present on international security and pulling America out of the role of peacekeeper.

    Not sure what all of the fuss is about. Seems like Obama is doing everything we feared he would when he first began his campaign. No surprise here – he’s a wolf in wolf’s clothes.
    PS – I love reading your blog. There’s always a ton of great information. Thanks.
