The Presidency’s shoe has been too big for Obama to fill; during his 7 years in White House he hasn’t been instrumental to anything that can minimally help promote the life of people across the world. He has done nothing productive to solve any problem currently the citizen of earth is facing with. He has just been an inept bystander of misery the mankind is suffering to the point that has allowed the ISIS terror movement to become a terror nation. His policy of ending a war is to lose it that is why he is so humble in face of Islam that refuses to use “Muslim” and “terrorism” in the same sentence. He is not only making himself a looser, and he is not only making the once-great nation of America a looser, but he is making the humanity a big looser. [DID]
Last Thursday, President Barack Obama fixed a global audience with either grim determination or intestinal discomfort and declared the islamofascist terrorist cabal known as ISIS had been “contained.” The announcement put him at odds with ISIS itself, which replied to Obama’s profession of progress by launching the worst attack on the city of Paris since the Nazis marched down the Champs-Élysées.
The complete annihilation of a man’s greatest foreign policy “achievement” at the hands of a group that he has repeatedly dismissed as “jayvee” might drive an ordinary man to at least re-evaluate his goals, if not his rhetoric. But our man Barry put “ordinary” in the rearview mirror somewhere between Bill Ayers’ living room and the back nine at Congressional Country Club. Obama responded to the blood-soaked repudiation of virtually every statement he has ever made about ISIS by bringing down the rhetorical hammer — on you. Read more…
This is the 3rd Obama’s empty “Red Line”, first it was used against Syria’s dictator Bashar Al-Assad, then against the Mullahs, and now for the Russia’s Crimean occupation, which, as the other two, it doesn’t get anywhere! Obama is hidden behind his vain diplomacy dogma to protect his Nobel Peace Prize. [DID]
In the dying days of the Soviet Union, President George H W Bush gave a speech in Kiev urging Ukrainian nationalists not to provoke Moscow. US conservatives dubbed it his “chicken Kiev” speech. Having long since been branded America’s appeaser-in-chief, President Barack Obama now confronts his own chicken Kiev moment. Can Mr Obama stand up to Vladimir Putin, the Russian fox circling the chicken coop? It is unclear whether he has the will and the skill – let alone the means – to do so. Yet the future of his presidency depends on it. There can be little doubt that Mr Putin wants to restore the boundaries of the Russian empire. Mr Obama must somehow find a way to frustrate him.
It will require a very different Mr Obama from the semi-detached one the world has grown used to. Even before Mr Obama became president, critics accused him of appeasing a revanchist Russia. Read more…
The theocratic regime’s officials and decision makers have deeply rooted apocalyptic beliefs. The Mullahs’ regime in Iran prepare for the return of Islamic Messiah as they slay infidels. They are asserting that Armageddon is at hand and that the Islamic regime’s followers, indeed all of Islam, must prepare for a monumental change in the world. Underestimating this radical ideology even as the Iranian regime is on its way to building a nuclear bomb will lead to dangerously wrong conclusions. [DID]
Mahmoud Ahmadi-Nejad had one great political talent: unifying Iran’s opponents. With his Holocaust-denial and bombastic bluster, the former Iranian president made thinking about Iran straight forward.
Since the more moderate and emollient Hassan Rouhani took over in July, it has become much harder to strike a common line on Iran, especially in the US where the White House and Congress are involved in a fierce tug-of-war over whether to impose new sanctions.
The dispute over how the US should deal with Mr Rouhani, which is likely to be one of the defining arguments of the Obama presidency, boils down to a basic disagreement over the nature of the Iranian regime and society. Read more…
