Did he say these exact words? Well, no. But what he did say is its equivalent

During President Obama's visit to Thailand on Sunday, Obama was asked about the current situation with Israel's strikes on Hamas in the Gaza Strip. Naturally, as with nearly all American leaders, Obama gave his full support for Israel in their battle. Obama's response, whether inadvertent or not, was quite interesting when you take into account the foreign policy of the United States.
"Let's understand what the precipitating event here that's causing the current crisis and that was an ever-escalating number of missiles that were landing not just in Israeli territory but in areas that are populated, and there's no country on Earth that would tolerate missiles raining down on its citizens from outside its borders,” Obama said at press conference in Thailand at the start of a three-nation tour in Asia.
...So we are fully supportive of Israel's right to defend itself from missiles landing on people's homes and workplaces and potentially killing civilians.
...Israel has every right to expect that it does not have missiles fired into its territory."
Interesting. So, in other words, because the United States repeatedly rains missiles down on Pakistan and Yemen, it stands to reason that Pakistan and Yemen [or any other country in the world we bomb] have every right to defend themselves as well. Obama is basically sending the message to all countries of the world in which the United States uses as continuous target practice, "It is your right to strike back at the United States when we attack you". Where am I wrong?
OK, so he did not say those exact words. Is not the end result exactly the same? If I told someone that I only liked white people, would I have to actually utter the words that I did not like any other race? Is not the end result the same? Of course it is.
Obama, knowingly or not, has openly admitted the absurdity of the foreign policy of the United States. We call those who fight back in countries we [the U.S.A.] bomb "terrorists" and get angered that those who attack us call themselves "freedom fighters". But, when it is Israel being attacked, they are given the stamp of approval by our President. Israelites can't be terrorists....nahhhhh, not them! After all, they are God's people, right?
Listen to Obama openly admit that America's foreign policy [we get to attack other countries, but they cannot strike back] is complete and utter bullshit
