In lifting ever so slightly sanctions on Iran, president Obama is allowing some aid in food to supplement the tightened belt diet of Iranians. Grandly, he proclaimed that we don’t use food as a weapon.
Well, old darling, go tell that to the people of North Korea. There, the American president is purposefully denying food aid to North Koreans, and has been doing it, without a sigh of regret, since 2008.
In fact he has heartily adopted Henry Kissinger’s suggestion, as a way to strengthen US security and overseas interests.
