Alinsky's Rules for Radicals on an International scale

This has been percolating around in my head for the last week. I know there's got to be more examples to flesh it out, but I can't bring myself to trudge through more of these bastards' crap.

We like to point to Obama's various screwup on his first world tour as signs of a weak and unserious mind. But the more I look at his actions, the more I see a pattern that was noted before throughout the Rush kerfluffle in January and February.

Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.

That's Rule 13 (which, depending on your source, may or may not even exist). We know Obama was raised drinking deep from the far-left koolaid; where all the world's ills are attributed directly to western liberal democracy and the United States in particular. In order for leftist utopia to emerge, the United States must be brought to heal, or destroyed all together. That's his target.

Freeze:
-Present a weak and rudderless national defense posture. Don't respond to provocation; cut the defense budget.
-Propose massive spending increases with deficits that will bankrupt the country in short order. Create so many domestic problems to contend with, we can't effectively handle international ones.

Personalize:
-Lay the blame for the current recession and any other current bugbear at the feet of the United States. Give all the world's problems a uniquely American face. Domestically, it may be "the previous administration," but internationally it's all about "Americans" this and "America" that. Failures are "American," successes are "Multi-national."
-Be perfectly content with the eliminating the US Dollar as the standard world currency.

Polarize:
-Insult the leaders of our most steadfast allies through poor decorum and double-speak.
-Leave those nations most depending on our support (Israel, Japan, Iraq, Taiwan, South Korea) wondering if they can really depend on us at all.

All of these actions serve to isolate us from our allies and weaken us in the eyes our enemies. He's looking to turn us into an international pariah worthy only of ridicule, leaving the US no different effectively than North Korea.

1 It's hard to avoid seeing Obama's actions as being deliberately harmful to the US. Ultimately it's not even necessary. It doesn't really matter. There's no way all this won't do a lot of damage to the US and the world's perception of the US.
