To paraphrase President Obama’s position on the crisis in Iraq and Syria: “It wasn’t me… the intelligence community got it wrong — mistakenly they were surprised and astonished by the ISIS offense. It was Clapper. Jimmy just got it wrong besides slip-ups in judgments happen in the Intel gathering world. I had no idea that ISIS was heading to Iraq.” “No one told me,” emphasizes the president. “It’s not my fault” implies the leader of the free world. “I am not at fault for the violent deaths of thousands. I’m not responsible for the families of refuges left destitute in Jordan or Turkey. It was not me but ISIS that forced these people out of their homes for fear of those horrific and despicable Islamic philistines.”
President Obama is unwilling to accept responsibility for his own actions and incapable of correctly analyzing the world and its reality. He is an apparatchik of himself. Seemingly, respective of evidence, to the contrary the president is solidly congealed in his military strategy — despite the obvious hypocrisy of pledging “no boots on the ground” while boots are indeed on the ground he cannot be persuaded to tactically adapt to a constantly changing battlefield.
Amongst the chaos of this particular convoluted mess (better understood as Obama’s Middle East foreign policy) blood and treasure are being spilled. Thousands of innocent humans are at risk of annihilation or worse and the leader of the free world is stymied, unwilling to act. The president’s ideologically founded stubbornness is not a character appreciative; it is a behavioral dysfunction.
If one couples the fanaticism of these Islamic extremists with the ultimate weaponry, i.e. WMDs, who amongst us non-believers of Mohammed trusts that these evil ones would hesitate in their destructive deployment? Whether Shiite or Sunni, Iran, Libya, or one of many Islamic governments in Africa founded on their theocratic pronunciation, who doubts the uncompromising ferocity of their violent actions. Imagine if these Islamic fanatics controlled rockets with nuclear warheads!
President Obama (our neutered war-time commander-in-chief) and his political administers are risking the safety of our nation. He is caving in on Iranian sanctions, executing an ineffectual paddy-cake air campaign, and abandoning Israel to fend for itself. To the direct detriment of world order, this very dangerous professor of law is purposefully mitigating the effectualness of American power and influence.
His aids and assists are fellow liberal progressives who, as with the president, willfully forego America’s responsibility as leader of the free world so to install their brand of socialism, social-justice, and political-economic equalitarianism. As experienced by the last six years, these progressives disrespect the concept of law over man and confidently realize their superior intelligence supersedes the federal constitution.
