In Syria, Obama was begging for a reason not to attack the Assad regime after they used chemical weapons against their own citizens, deciding to desperately accept a Russian-backed deal that would force Assad to destroy his chemical stockpiles. Well, that was a year ago; and Assad has used chemical weapons fourteen times since against the opposition.
In Iraq, we have seen the Islamic State in Iraq (ISIS) defeat and occupy the northern cities on its march to Baghdad. Why do you think the Obama administration was so intent to remove American forces from the region? “See you in New York,” was a recent comment from a terrorist commander in-country as they beheaded thousands of Iraqis that worked with the Americans to defeat the jihadists under President Bush. Sunni fighters now control an area from Syria to the border of Iran, creating a terrorist state in the Middle East that will be much more dangerous than Afghanistan ever was. And now, we see the American presence being removed from that country as well.
In Turkey, Obama initially established a warm relationship with Islamist Prime Minister Ergodan until reports of his supporting Al Qaeda elements crossing Turkish territory back and forth from Europe to Syria forced Obama to publicly cool the relationship. Read that again. Obama supported a Turkish leader who allowed terrorists to travel from Syria to Europe through Turkish territory. Turkey is a member of NATO. Shocking.
As I have written before on these pages, the Obama administration’s agenda is not the buttressing of American power and ideals in the Middle East. It is about creating an environment where Muslim countries can install religious governments to create a Islamic caliphate across the Middle East and South Asia. The evidence of results on the ground as we look at it today is just too obvious. Enjoy the show, folks; you’re watching history. The Ottoman Empire is being reborn under our noses and is supported by our own government. I fear for our children’s future.
