OBAMA DEFENDS CONTROVERSIAL POLICY OF NOT INVADING COUNTRIES FOR NO REASON

Posted By Andy Borowitz

WEST POINT (The Borowitz Report)—President Obama raised eyebrows with his West Point commencement address Wednesday by offering a defense of his controversial foreign-policy doctrine of not invading countries for no reason.

Conservative critics were taken aback by Obama’s speech, which was riddled with incendiary remarks about only using military force for a clearly identified and rational purpose.

Obama did not shy away from employing polarizing rhetoric, often using words such as “responsible” and “sensible” to underscore his message.

Harland Dorrinson, a fellow at the conservative think tank the Center for Global Intervention, said that he was “stunned” to see Obama “defend his failure to engage the United States in impulsive and random military adventures.”

1. Hope Canada becomes less worried now

 

Because Canada is on the radar for a raid. They have all that oil, land and free health care and are making us pay out the nose for snot. So i guess Obama is telling Canada to not be so worried. Or is this just a setup? Oh, Canada, where are you????

3. Honestly, I thought this was an Onion headline ...

Seriously, "Not invading countries for no reason" is controversial.

We're one screwed up country.
