Barack Obama aide: Why Winnie the Pooh should shape US foreign policy


Richard Danzig, who served as Navy Secretary under President Clinton and is tipped to become National Security Adviser in an Obama White House, told a major foreign policy conference in Washington that the future of US strategy in the war on terrorism should follow a lesson from the pages of Winnie the Pooh, which can be shortened to: if it is causing you too much pain, try something else.

Mr Danzig told the Centre for New American Security: “Winnie the Pooh seems to me to be a fundamental text on national security.”


I can't believe this.
OK, web site security may have nothing to do National Security, but what does Winnie the Pooh have to do with anything?

Winnie the Pooh is giving sound advice, perhaps he should be hired as a pentagon advisor. Just because an example is alegorical does not mean it is invalid.

First you go after internet technicians, now you go after teddy bears. Dude... dude... chill out friend.

OMG... dude... you left out the best parts of the article....


Mr Danzig spelt out the need to change by reading a paragraph from chapter one of the children’s classic, which says: “Here is Edward Bear, coming downstairs now, bump, bump, bump on the back of his head behind Christopher Robin. It is, as far as he knows, the only way of coming down stairs. But sometimes he thinks there really is another way if only he could stop bumping a minute and think about it.”


And...


He said that even people who are relatively well off and successful can feel like failures and become alientated from their societies. He said one terrorist told him: “We have been raised on a theory of superheroes. We all want to be like Luke Skywalker.



Is this guy really an advisor to Obama? Comparing terrorists to Luke Skywalker?? And obviously that would make the U.S. the evil empire, right?

I guess I'm too much of a nice guy and didn't want to over do it because this is really too much.
I honestly couldn't believe what I was reading because it was way off base and I actually started feeling sorry for Obama and the people he is selecting.
Please help me snap me out of it, I think I need some help.

Winnie the Pooh and Luke Skywalker?
This stuff is worthy of an Obama/Pooh/Skywalker Photoshop contest, but then again our National Security should never be the subject of a joke.

What the hell are we getting ourselves into with this guy?
Where are the media usuals and why aren't they reporting this?

Oh I forgot, they're in the tank for Obama.

So one of Obama's advisors thinks that the U.S. should adopt a Winnie the Pooh policy. Give me a break, this just shows how inexperienced the Obama team really is. Comparing U.S. policy to Star Wars and Winnie the Pooh should be a no no in any campaign.

What about eyore and tigger??

I'd be in favour of Eyore, even if he is a glum fellow he's not going to do anything stupid.

Tigger is more or less the opposite, in case you hadn't noticed.

Nevertheless, it seems Winnie and his bloodlust will never be quenched.

Oh Bother,

We all know Obama is inexperienced but what's with the child mentality.

Is there not a single adult in the Democrat Party.

You know I felt the same way when I was writing this thread about Obama selecting NWO insider Lee Hamilton to be a foreign policy advisor.

I *almost* felt sorry for him because it seems like he's being totally controlled by the powers that be.

What a Hoot! That is histerical. Thank God we have John McCain who has no connection to George Bush or NWO to save us!

Personally I love the whole Winne the Poo analogy. You do understand what an analogy is don't you?
But I would run National Security more like a Will Rogers thing.
