The lack of leadership, the hands off, abandonment policies of Barack Obama with regard to the Middle East are a major cause of the humanitarian crisis now facing Europe and the people of the Middle East and eventually America.
The declining role of America in the world caused by Barack Obama’s policies and world view are leaving openings for the Chinese and Russians (you can now view Chinese war ships along with whales off the Alaska coast). Do you think Putin is done with the Ukraine or Syria?
Nobody likes war or violence, but step back and look at the result of trying to run from conflict; of abandoning world leadership? We have created an opening for the worst extremists in memory.
Blame George Bush for the Iraq war if you want, that’s what Barack Obama ran against, that’s the problem Obama was going to solve. Instead, he has made things immeasurably worse and maybe irreversible. The next president will be faced with war decisions as a direct result of today’s incompetence and naive policies.
You may say the Middle East is none of our business, but in today’s inter connected world that is not true. It’s like saying economic and political conditions in Central America and Mexico are none of our business, really? Look around.
That’s my view, what’s yours❓
