What the fuck did Equatorial Guinea ever do to anybody?

Okay, so Netanyahu shows up to the White House, right? Figuring that we’d still roll out the red carpet even though they basically spat in Joe Biden’s face, right?

Well, Obama, in a rare act of backbonedness for a Democrat, told the Prime Minister that there would be no more building in East Jerusalem. Netanyahu’s response? He tried to show Obama a flowchart of the approval process for new settlements and how he could have not possibly known.

Let’s face it folks, a flowchart would worked on Bush.

Obama said, “No Dinner for You!”

Or, even better, the reality:

“I’m still around, let me know if there is anything new.”

Then he went off to have dinner in private, among civilized people.

The Israelis, of course, went ballistic. They freaked out so bad they went and slept in the Israeli Embassy. They were so use to getting whatever the fuck they wanted, they couldn’t comprehend assfucking our Vice President trying to start peace talks would have consequences.

But, this, this pissed me off:

Binyamin Netanyahu humiliated after Barack Obama ‘dumped him for dinner’

Giles Whittell, Washington, and James Hider, Jerusalem, Times Online


One Israeli newspaper called the meeting “a hazing in stages”, poisoned by such mistrust that the Israeli delegation eventually left rather than risk being eavesdropped on a White House telephone line. Another said that the Prime Minister had received “the treatment reserved for the President of Equatorial Guinea”.

Fuck the what?

What the fuck has Equatorial Guinea ever done to anybody?

You elitist bastards, why should you be treated better than them? They actually got their shit together, in Africa, not always an easy feat.

I think this “another”, who of course goes unnamed, was a little off in their geography.

the Prime Minister had received “the treatment reserved for a President of South Africa from the 80s.”

  1. Nice, dude.

    This modest agreement with Russia is a first step in a year which will contain exponentially larger challenges: how to convince the 184 states that have signed the nuclear non-proliferation treaty (NPT), but who don’t have nuclear weapons, that the five signatories who have weapons are doing enough to bring along non-signatory nuclear-armed states such as India, Pakistan and Israel? President Barack Obama had originally hoped to have the successor to Start in his pocket and ratified before going to the review conference of the NPT, which this year will be dominated by fears of a nuclear arms race in the Middle East. While the establishment of a nuclear-free zone in Middle East has broad support, Israel has flatly rejected Egypt’s demand to join the NPT as a non-weapons state. Egypt is determined to press its demand for an international conference in 2011 with both Iran and Israel at the table, and has threatened to withdraw its support for other areas of the treaty, should the United States go cool on the idea. And all this before Mr Obama attempts to pursue US ratification of the comprehensive test ban treaty, the cornerstone of nuclear arms control.

    The Israelis don’t want to even talk about giving up their nukes, so they use the Palestinians as a pretext for creating a diplomatic incident.

    This way Bibi kills two birds with one stone: he buys time for the settlement construction and creates an excuse to stay out of the NPT conference.

    It’s not a bad play as long as Obama confines his protests to ceremonial dinner invitations.  The question becomes whether Obama has the guts to back up his gastrointestinal dramatics with real action.
