Need A Strategy, Mr President?

Obama_pic_135hOur President and leader, Barack Hussein Obama, has been having problems dealing with the real world. I admit it must not be easy, especially for a man whose only accomplishment has been on basketball courts playing trash-mouth, in-your-face games. That’s his adopted style for pretty much any conflict with anyone.

Just talk trash, Mr President. The American people will take care of upstarts like Vladimir Putin, President of Russia, and world-wide Muslim terrorist organizations. Once you have contributed your bad-mouthing we will do the hard work of designing a strategy for Iraq and the Middle-East.

We have to understand what our interests are in the area. Some of these are international oil markets, terrorism suppression, business and trade aspirations, human rights, the proliferation of nuclear weapons, helping our allies (Israel), and protection of US citizens as tourists or expatriates. Once we have agreed what these interests are, it is a process of prioritizing, or rank-ordering the importance of each. I think everybody will agree that human rights is up there almost at the top of the list, otherwise, why did we interfere in Bosnia, Kosovo, and Somalia (Black Hawk Down)?

If suppressing world-wide terrorism is on the list, I think that most people would agree that it is best done in the deserts of the Middle-East rather than on the streets of Boston or New York. This is a no-brainer if there ever was one. If we choose to make terrorism suppression a primary element of our Iraq and Middle-East strategy, the proper action is to move aggressively, and not wait for the fight to come to us. Defensive strategies are rarely successful.

If fighting terrorists in the sands of Iraq is a whack-a-mole exercise, then we need to militarily adopt a whack-a-mole strategy. One element of this is to interfere with Iran’s ability to contribute weapons and funds to the terrorists. The same thing applies to other Arab or Muslim countries. They are funding the terrorists, and we should call their hand.

Oh, wait! Have we not we been through all this, before? Were we not at the point where terrorism had been effectively suppressed in Iraq? Did we not have a policy with Iran and other belligerent countries to sanction them for funding terrorists causes, or developing nuclear weapons?

Oh, shades of George Bush. It turns out that the Bush Administration was right. Yeah, I know that a lot of people didn’t agree with the Iraq war. Sorry about that. We won, and now our current President has given the whole country to the terrorists. So, if you want to curse G W Bush, do so after recognizing that Barack Obama is a comparative mental cripple.

If you are not with us you are against us.

Take the fight to the enemy, and fight on their soil. Be aggressive and not defensive.

Mr President, this sounds like a proper strategy to me. We need to understand that the end game may not being a clear win. At the same time we must be dedicated to the necessary survival of our nation, free markets, and individual freedom. We can even call this the Obama strategy.

I don’t think George Bush would mind.

 

 

Something Is Going On Out There

You can call it destiny. You can call it magic. You can call it prophecy. Whatever you call it, there’s some real stuff going on.

The President of The United States is talking about being impeached. Since he is the only one talking impeachment, does that mean that he has secret guilt?

The Congressional House of Representatives is threatening to sue the President. The Senate is not doing a damned thing.

The Russians are messing with the Ukrainians. The President of The United States refuses to give aid to the Ukrainians. They are not afraid to fight the Russians, and with a little help in arms and intelligence, they can beat the Russians. Where is Barack Obama? Wazzup with this?

Islamic terrorists are still murdering people. Muslims around the world don’t care.

The ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and The Levant) terrorist group, a derivative of Al Qaeda, has managed to take over most of Iraq since the United States military left that country. ISIS is funded from a number of sources and is ideologically much more extreme than Al Qaeda. They have announced that Christians are targets, and either must leave the country, convert to Islam, or die. Who is there to prevent this from happening?

The US economy is not improving. The employment rate has increased, but the number of full-time jobs has decreased. More people are employed part-time than ever before. We know Obama likes to mess with the economy, so, why is everything he does wrong?

Central American illegal immigrant children are welcomed with free food stamps, free schools, free medical care, free transportation to relatives homes, and free legal support. Africans, Europeans, Asians, and South Americans have to spend thousands of dollars over many years to gain legal entry into the United States. Why do you suppose this is?

US citizens are the most spied-upon populace in the world with the NSA, IRS, SEC, FCC, and FEC monitoring private email, private telephone conversations, political contributions, and shopping habits. If you sponsor a non-profit, conservative educational group, the President of The United States has approved your financial and regulatory harassment.

Just ask Lois Lerner.

Yes. There’s something going on out there. Or, not.

Something is missing in this world, allowing chaos to dominate where once there was leadership within and from the United States of America.

There is not a leader in the White House, and this a major domestic and world-wide problem.

  • Where is our leadership we need in tackling economic problems?
  • Where is our leadership when it comes to bringing a decent resolution to immigration and border problems?
  • Where is our leadership when it comes to working with a fractured Congress?
  • Where is our leadership when it comes to challenging the hegemonic designs of totalitarian leaders like Vladimir Putin?
  • Where is our leadership when it comes to fighting international Islamic terrorism?

Indeed, where is the President of The United States when so many problems bedevil the nation and the world?

Say no more. Just look at the pictures in the news. Campaigns and parties are on the President’s agenda. Work? Not so much.

I Told You So!

Barack Obama now has the distinction of having lost two wars. TWO WARS that have already been fought, and that the United States of American has won. Thousands of lives and billions of dollars were spent in these endeavors only to be thrown away by what some people call the smartest guy in the room.

To make matters worse, this whole debacle was foretold by millions of Americans when Barack Obama first took office over five years ago. In only five years Barack Obama has thrown away all this blood and treasure, all in obedience to lofty-thinking, simplistic left-wing morons. I am talking about the Democrat Party, here.

The ability to say, “I told you so!” is not helpful, at all. Barack Obama has dropped-the-ball, screwed-the-pooch, stepped-on-his-Johnson, pooped-in-the-punchbowl, farted-at-the-finish, and has made a mess of generally everything since he has been in office.

But, saying “I told you so!” reflects on me. Call it what you like, but it is all about Obama’s hubris.

You can say what you want about the necessity of fighting these wars, but at the time we thought it was the right thing to do. Those who say otherwise now are denying their own history. Plus, we all knew that there would be a time when our presence in Iraq would be a plus factor in dealing with Iran. Now, Iran is planning on entering Iraq for their own purposes with no opposition.

Oh, what a fool we have for a President. Welcome to the Obama age where everybody is a loser.

Obama’s Sins Come Full Circle

Oh, how he crowed and bragged that he would bring all the US military home from Iraq. Our military was spread thin, tired, and people had developed a lot of resistance against foreign military action. We were all tired, but I was never in favor of getting all our military out of Iraq.

The consequences of leaving Iraq without any US military safeguard was obvious to everyone. We all knew that when we left Iraq to the forces of terrorism and foreign incursion from belligerent countries, all the wonderful things that Iraq was becoming were at stake.

Heck, even I wrote about this three months before the last American military unit left Iraq on December 31, 2011. It must be noted that on the eleventh anniversary of 9/11 (September 11, 2012), the Benghazi terrorist attack took place which was planned, supported, and executed by the very groups Barack Obama said were out of business.

Now, the smartest guy in the room has created a situation where the Al Qaeda type terrorists have conquered a significant portion of the entire country of Iraq. Tikrit, Mosul, Fallujah, and smaller cities have fallen to the ISIS (Islamic State In Iraq And Syria). Baghdad may be next.

Their stated goal is to form a Caliphate, an Islamic state ruled by Islamic law. Islamic law means Sharia, which is a barbarous collection of brutal, outmoded, and tribal rules which punishes people rather than empowering people. All the empowering is done for the religious elite.

Barack Obama is now responsible for Iraq’s future because the United States of America has deserted those people. You can talk all day long about how they didn’t deserve the Billions of dollars and the thousands of lives we dedicated to the Iraqi people. Obama will have given an entire country to the terrorists with which to do as they wish with no opposition.

Once you let the terrorists take over a country, you have done the stupidest thing possible. You are giving the terrorists an entire country in which to plan, sponsor, and execute terrorist attacks all over the globe.

Obama’s decision to desert Iraq has come around to bite him in his popularity. That’s the only thing that concern’s this guy.

 

 

Al Qaeda Is Back!

Al Qaeda is back, and they are bigger and more numerous than before Bin Laden was killed. Simultaneous protests and terrorist attacks around the world were staged by Al Qaeda on the anniversary of the 9/11/2001 attacks on the United States. These simultaneous attacks were not a coincidence.

It was a planned set of actions meant to show the world that Al Qaeda is back. President Obama has been bragging that Al Qaeda has been decimated, but the Libyan embassy attack brands those statements as a big lie.

Osama Bin Laden was just a figure-head in the Al Qaeda organization when the SEALS helped him assume room temperature. Obama, indeed, went around bragging about having spent millions of dollars to kill a man who had no influence in the world of terror.

Bin Laden lost his mojo a long time ago when G W Bush’s soldiers pushed him into the wilds of Pakistan, marginalizing the master terrorist as a leader. The real power in Al Qaeda quickly moved to fight Americans in Iraq. Do you remember the thousands of Iraqi’s murdered by Al Qaeda’s operatives? They were fighting in Iraq in large numbers.

Huge numbers of terrorists filtered into Iraq through Iran and Syria to fight Americans.  Tons of weapons and millions of dollars poured into Iraq supporting Al Qaeda and allied terrorist groups. The war with Iraq was over fairly quickly, but the war on terror in Iraq was long and hard. We won, and we pretty well ran Al Qaeda out of Iraq. Now, Obama is surrendering the blood and treasure spent in Iraq to the terrorists who are already returning to that country.

Al Qaeda is strong in other nations around the Middle-East. We see the Islamic Brotherhood running Egypt. The Egyptian Brotherhood is not Al Qaeda, however you must remember that Bin Laden’s second in command was from the Egyptian Brotherhood. The two organizations have no religious or philosophical daylight between them. They support each other.

Barack Obama has been verbally defending a terrorist group when he speaks favorably about the Egyptian Brotherhood. Al Qaeda affiliates are also active in Libya, Syria, Iraq, Yemen, Saudi Arabia, Afghanistan, and scores of other countries.

Due to the way they move around and birth other terrorist groups, Al Qaeda is bigger and badder than ever.

So much for Barack Obama’s big victory in the War on Terror.
