(Reuters) - The United States has lifted a ban on visits by New Zealand warships to U.S. defense and coast guard bases around the world, further thawing relations after a 26-year stand-off on nuclear issues.Following such a display of weakness I expect more dead American diplomats within hours. Their blood will be on your hands, Nobama.
U.S. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta made the announcement during a visit to New Zealand on Friday. He said Washington would lift restrictions on military exercises and facilitate more talks with New Zealand even though Wellington maintains its long-held nuclear-free stance.
For the first time since the suspension of the ANZUS Treaty in 1986, Washington will allow individual visits by Royal New Zealand Navy ships to U.S. Department of Defense or Coast Guard facilities in the United States and around the world, Panetta said in Auckland, New Zealand's largest city.

Weak ... Obama Bows To Enraged Kiwis
By M. Bouffant at 22:23
Another Obama administration official is on an appeasement and apology tour, this time going next-door to the very bottom of the world just to let a tiny island nation of simple sheep-herding (but English-speaking, if you know what I mean) folk push us around by being anti-nuclear and keeping our sailors off their silly beaches. No one would even exist without those little atomic nucleons, which the whiny anti-nuke liberals/science people should know; where these shepherds get goofy ideas like that I don't know, but Obama's Defense Czar is whispering and needs to grow a pair of big sticks and put on his man-pants too.
