Haven't we seen this movie before? Russia invades Ukraine and Obama and Kerry express their concern and say this will isolate Russia. Now, Russia is building bases in Syria and attacking U.S. allies who oppose ISIS terrorists and the criminal Assad regime and Kerry again expressed "grave concern."
No matter where you look Obama is being played by the bad guys and he can't seem to figure it out. Is he happy with the collapse of U.S. leadership ushering in a new age of violence and brutality?
Speaking on the floor of the U.S. Senate, Armed Services Committee Chairman John McCain declared:“This is the inevitable consequence of hollow words, red lines crossed, tarnished moral influence, leading from behind and a total lack of American leadership.”
That's putting it mildly. Is Obama doing this on purpose to weaken U.S. leadership?
Romney says that Russia is one of our biggest threats and Obama basically says Romney is an idiot. OBAMA: "The 1980's are calling and they want their foreign policy back. The Cold War is over!" What an ass. And so very, VERY WRONG!
Obama lectures Putin and UN Two Days Before Russian Strike
Just to show how little Obama is regarded by Putin and other bad guys, there's this excerpt of Obama's speech at the United Nations two days before Russia attacked. Putin met with Obama during that time.
OBAMA: I stand before you today believing in my core that we, the nations of the world, cannot return to the old ways of conflict and coercion. We cannot look backwards. We live in an integrated world — one in which we all have a stake in each other’s success. . . .And if we cannot work together more effectively, we will all suffer the consequences. That is true for the United States, as well.What a joke. How out of touch with reality is Obama? Or, again, is he doing this on purpose?
UPDATE: Hundreds of Iranian troops flood into Syria. Sound like a good idea?
