Obama s just as much an accessory to Isis/Al Queda crimes as Assad and his allies. The latter had to be in on the regime's covert alliance with ISIS from Day One. Now the alliance is no longer concealed yet Obama remains in denial . Why? Chamberlain-like naivete? Cheap domestic political concerns? Pure stupidity?
The graphic photo below shows what ISIS/regime forces are allowed to do as Obama's sits by and does nothing. Mere show dressing “protests” don't count, being so worthless they are tantamount to approval. Their sole effect on the Bad Guys is to induce laughter, contempt and mockery similar to that Chamberlain and Dedalier after Munich (Hitler referred to them as "contemptible little worms.").
What you you think of a heavily armed passerby who notices an old lady getting mugged by two thugs but walks past without hesitating? That’s “our Obama!” To make it worse, imagine that the same two thugs had previously targeted the passerby’s home or his family on repeated occasions earlier. That's "our Obama!" How many US troops or US civilians were previously murdered either by Al Queda or the regime—sometimes working together (see Iraq) in so many places?
If not for a similar instance (the notorious Rose Garden betrayal) would we be seeing all these barrel bombs or deliberate starvation policies, or the massacres in towns near Qalamoun or the endless field executions? Thanks, Obama! Now the regime openly colludes with Al Queda, Obama’s response is… Denial, Denial and More Denial. What would you expect? Again, that’s “our Obama” behaving in classic fashion.
A GUARANTEE: Allowing these two and their allies to gang up on the relatively moderate rebels will also have catastrophic consequences which won’t stop inside Syria. Many Americans will die because of Obama’s negligence—past and present--in Syria just as millions died because of the Munich Conference sellout in 1938.
If this oblivious, Hamlet-like president does not arm the rebels with something more than pea shooters (aka "non lethal weapons) while everyone arms the Bad Guys then other, brighter folk must act must act out of self-defense. . It doesn’t matter whether it be Gulf monarchs or western governments having grasped reality.
Unfortunately, Obama is too busy licking Putin’s toes and pushing the pre-rigged Geneva Conference to figure that out how dangerous his policy is. So long as he winks at every crime, the regime and its allies will continue to provide Al Queda/ISIS with supplies, air power and artillery support. Several regime units have cheered ISIS attacks even though Obama tells us “the regime is fighting Al Queda.” He may as well join in those cheers.
As the rebels continue to fight against multiple enemies, who include Russian and Iranian proxies, Obama continues to peddle the same blatant lie: “This is a civil war and there (in spite of flawed premise) we should stay out.” Translation: “We should allow intervention but ONLY on Assad’s side.” The same President has been preparing us for a potential alliance with the Syrian Hitler and his pals as "the best way to fight Al Queda." Don’t be surprised if he continues to advocate that approach even after the events of the last ten days. That’s “our Obama!”
Until now this two-time Obama voter had decided to sit out the 2014 and 2016 elections in protest. However I could not vote for the horrific Koch Brothers/Tea Party/KKK-NRA/ religious right GOP. However Obama’s collaboration with those who have so often threatened national security has become so extensive that I may have to hold my nose and vote GOP (UG!) The only thing that can stop he now would be a complete reversal of Obama’s “Do nothing serious” policies in Syria or the GOP nomination of someone equally stupid such as Rand Paul and Ted Cruz who have also repeatedly claimed—like Obama--America needs to side with Assad (the ultimate terrorist) “because he is fighting terrorists.”
I hope Syrians won’t blame all Americans because we have such a stinker for a president. When he ran for re-election, Obama concealed his intended sellout to Putin, Khamenei and Assad. The extent of his betrayal surprised us as it surprised the world. I’m ashamed of the man. He played us all for suckers. In selling out America, allies and Sunnis, Obama ruined his own place in history as the President who broke the ultimate racial barrier.
