A true life simile for Obama's Middle East policy

A New York man's encounter with a tiger illustrates President Obama's Middle East policies.

Twenty-five-year old David Villalobos explained what he did this way, "I wanted to be one with the tiger."

That was after he jumped from an elevated train and landed in the Bronx Zoo, and, by design, into the grasp of a 400 lb. tiger.

"Villalobos also recounted how, after he landed on all fours, the 400-pound beast attacked him and dragged around by his foot, said New York Police Department spokesman Paul Browne. Despite serious injuries, he claimed he was able to get his wish and pet the tiger, a male Siberian named Bashuta, before his rescue, the spokesman added."

The zoo director said, "When someone is determined to do something harmful to themselves, it's very hard to stop that. The tiger did nothing wrong."

President Obama wanted to be one with the Muslim Brotherhood, and the oppressed - by the West, of course - people of the Middle East in Libya and Egypt - not so much so, though, with the people of Iran, but that's another story.

So he, Obama, jumped into the fray. And now the tiger has him by the foot, leg, and other lower extremities.

The tiger, Bashuta, might have been quoted as saying, 'He is the one I've been waiting for."
