In his 1801 inaugural address, newly elected President Thomas Jefferson, stated, plainly and simply, “Peace, commerce, and honest friendship with all nations — entangling alliances with none.” George Washington also urged the US to act for itself and not others by forming our nation’s character free of foreign attachments. Such is the wisdom of our founders that has gone ignored by presidents and Congresses alike. So, when Obama paraded out on Friday to blast Russian President Vladimir Putin and Russia over military intervention supporting Syrian President Bashar Assad, it reeked of pure hypocrisy.
At a White House news conference, Sheikh Obama said, “A military solution alone … is just going to get them stuck in a quagmire. It won’t work, and they will be there for a while if they don’t take a different course.”
Well, Barry, isn’t that Russia’s business, not ours? Syria and Russia have ties as Assad’s Syrian secular government provides Russia with warm weather ports in the Mediterranean. Just as America has ties with Saudi Arabia for oil, our government supports the Islamic barbaric Sharia regime of the Saudis. It was seen in our rush to defend the Saudis and Kuwait from Saddam Hussein. In fact, Barry, you bowed in submission to the Saudi king. Russia is defending Assad’s government for a regional interest. Pot much?
Obama lambasted Putin for bombing anyone opposed to the Assad regime proclaiming Russia’s actions will fuel ISIS recruiting. Supposedly, the US is “leading a coalition to wage airstrikes only against the Islamic State;” however, the US demands that Assad relinquish power.
“He [Putin] doesn’t distinguish between ISIL and a moderate Sunni opposition that wants to see Assad go,” Obama said. “That’s a receipt [recipe] for disaster and one that I reject. We reject Russia’s theory that everybody opposed to Assad is a terrorist.”
And on what information do you base that Barry? Interesting, that the US has armed ISIS, been inept in our airstrikes against ISIS, and spent $500 million to train “moderate Sunni opposition” who joined ISIS. Islam is Islam, regardless of which “sect,” Sunni or Shiite. However, Assad’s Syrian government has been more “secular,” flying in the face of both Sunni and Shiite Islam of other nations in the region. It’s no surprise both sects of Islam, outside Syria, want Assad ousted. What is even more astounding is the US government would back Islam over a secular government that protects all religious groups within its country’s borders. In other words, the US engages in toppling governments by supporting Islamic opposition forces — an activity that has resulted in instability in every country the US government intervened. One could say our government supports terror and Islam as much as Iran.
Obama and Putin met at the UN on Monday to discuss Syria. Two days later, Russia began airstrikes against Assad’s opposition — the Islamic State.
Barry the “Bacha Bazi” stated, “We are not going to cooperate with a Russian campaign to simply try to destroy anybody who is disgusted and fed up with Assad’s behavior.”
In a purely condescending statement, Bacha Bazi Barry said, “Iran and Assad make up Putin’s coalition at the moment. The rest of the world makes up ours. I don’t think people are fooled by the current strategy.”
Does anyone know whose side who is on? Didn’t the US just make a nuclear agreement with Iran that Barry pushed forward with a complicit Congress negating constitutional requirement? Wasn’t Obama singing the praises of Iran while Iran chanted, “Death to America?” Now, Iran is out of favor with Obama for joining Russia in support of Assad. Who says the rest of the world makes up “our coalition?” Has Obama negated China who has moved ships into the Mediterranean? Did not China join with Russia in BRICS? The big question is what side is the US taking? What side is Iran taking since it supports terrorism worldwide and oppressive Islamic Sharia law — just like Saudi Arabia.
Would someone like to explain the current strategy since for most Americans looking on believe our leadership doesn’t know it’s backside from a hole in the ground?
Admitting his $500 million plan training and arming “moderate” Syrians failed, Obama touted a “revised” strategy to work more closely with Kurdish fighters who have been successful in fighting ISIS. Gee, it took how long to figure that out? He mentioned a lesson the US learned in Iraq and Afghanistan — America cannot afford a ground war in Syria.
But, America is arming ISIS against Assad since Bacha Bazi Barry wants Assad gone. In favor of what is anyone’s guess; but, more than likely it would be an extreme Muslim Brotherhood oppressive regime as seen in Egypt before the Egyptians ousted Morsi. Naturally, America cannot afford a ground war in Syria against the Islamic State. It isn’t because we cannot defeat ISIS — we can despite the Islamic State having equal ground equipment. The reason the US cannot afford a ground war in Syria is Americans would not support it since the treasonous Barry would use it as cover to oust Assad, who is supported by Russia.
Russia is a great reason to leave that hotbed mess alone. Putin is far more astute that Bacha Bazi Barry. His advisors are definitely pro-Russian interests first. And, Putin backs up his words with actions, unlike the blowhards taking up space in our government. However, the US government, courtesy of the US taxpayers, end up financially supporting oppressive regimes. To add insult to injury, Bacha Bazi Barry has provided Muslims from wherever an open invitation to the US complete with benefits courtesy of the American taxpayer. Right now, taxpayers are strapped, the government is strapped and as the old saying goes, “You can’t squeeze blood out of a turnip.” Add to this Obama’s downsizing, effeminizing, castrating of our military, along with unreasonable rules of engagement and ordered “blindness” concerning child abuse and pedophilia of supported regimes and this nation would be hard pressed to fight foot fungus in the field.
Our military members are perfectly capable of beating back the Islamic State under competent, pro-American, strong military leadership, Congressional and presidential backing. Unfortunately, these servicemen and women have nothing competent, strong or pro-American in government supporting them. Bacha Bazi Barry, along with Congress, uses them as fodder for a “checker” game, while others set up a chessboard; then, labels these courageous veterans as “domestic terrorists.”
“This is a hugely difficult, complex problem,” he said of Syria. “I would have hoped we had learned that problem from Afghanistan and Iraq. We’ve still got 10,000 [troops] in Afghanistan. We’re still spending billions of dollars supporting that government. I have to make a judgment, based on, once we start something, we’ve got to finish it. And we’ve got to do it well.”
Barry added to this convoluted message, “Unless we get the parties on the ground to agree to live together in some fashion, then no amount of US military engagement will solve the problem.”
Seriously? Bacha Bazi Barry has not even attempted to engage in any type of negotiation, as he is that dead set against Assad. Even if Obama’s animosity toward Assad were more “subdued,” it would be akin to negotiating between the Nazis (Islamic State) and the Jews (Assad’s secular government). Barry, the community organizer, knows nothing about negotiations nor does he surround himself with anyone who does. If he did, he would know Islam is Islam and no negotiations will work with Islam.
Obama is a liar, a traitor and a criminal. There is no way anyone can take what Obama says or claims and put money on it. It leaves everyone in the US and abroad in a constant state of confusion. Perfect for Bacha Bazi Barry.
Since World War II, when has the US finished what it got involved in and done the job well? Hugely difficult and complex problem is how Barry described this mess. Ya think? What a tangled web has been weaved by ignoring sound advice.
Bacha Bazi Barry truly has no side whatsoever — he’s a community organizer who only knows how to cause chaos, dissention, animosity and anarchy — as proven at home as well as abroad. Supported by a complicit Senate and House, look at what has happened solely during Obama’s reign. Previous administrations have not fared any better as all have ignored the wisdom imparted to future generations given by Jefferson and Washington.
Some would call the advice Jefferson and Washington imparted regarding “entangling alliances” as isolationism; however, their statements project anything but that. By ignoring their wisdom over the years, the US finds itself in a position now that most would describe as a “lose-lose” for our nation, especially with the current non-leadership. It all is by design, of course; and, at the hands of the puppet masters. At this stage of the game, it’s going to be awfully difficult, if not impossible, to get those horses back in the barn and close the door. That is, if this nation is left standing after this entire fiasco plays out.
