Obama Pledges to Boost Security Cooperation to Gulf Nations

(AP) Obama pledged America’s ‘ironclad commitment’ to anxious Arab States today to help protect their security pointedly mentioning the potential use of military force and offering strong assurances that a nuclear agreement with Islamic Fascist Iran wouldn’t leave them more vulnerable.
Obama promised that the U.S. would join with the ‘Gulf Cooperation Council’ (GCC) nations to ‘deter and confront an external threat to any GCC state’s territorial integrity.
Speaking at the close of the summit with Gulf State representatives that were in attendance at Camp David, Obama expressed hope that the region would achieve “the kind of peace and good neighborliness with Iran that I think so many of the countries here seek.”
A written annex accompanying the joint statement from the Gulf State representatives (as the leaders of Saudi Arabia, UAE, Oman and Bahrain snubbed Obama and were no-shows at his conference and sent their representatives) laid out what Obama claims that he meant when he promised “our ironclad commitment to the security of our Gulf partners.”
- Flashback: Remember that seemingly forgotten 1994 Budapest Memorandum that President Clinton executed with Ukraine together with British PM John Major and Russian President Boris Yelstin as part of the denuclearization of the former Soviet Union, promising to protect the sovereignty of the Ukrainian territorial borders from an invading army, which Obama has reneged on.
On the 09 March, 2014 I wrote here and again on the 29 July here that Obama was tested by the Russian’s (as Iran watched) whether or not the United States commitments to protect the territorial sovereignty of an allied nation actually was worth the paper it was printed on.
What if any real assurances do our ‘Gulf partners’ have that Obama will actually mean what he says when he’s pledged America’s integrity by assuring our ‘ironclad commitment’ to deter and confront an external threat to any GCC state’s territorial integrity?
Obama’s reneged on a previous ironclad commitments made by a former administration, why won’t he just renege on another?
