ISIS…a creation of Obama’s doing


“But I want to see a strategy.”

- New House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy speaking about Obama’s Iraq strategy

Saying that nobody in Washington wants to send U.S. troops into Iraq right now, new House Majority leader Kevin McCarthy stressed that a military option does need to be kept on the table, but as I see it the main problem with Iraq right now is that Obama and his administration lack NOT only a clear plan on exactly what to do but any plan at all.

Sending in 300 military advisers who like before will have their hands tied behind their back in regards to anything but trying to win the ‘hearts and minds’ of the enemy is absolutely NO response…is absolutely NO plan…to help stop the forward moving incursion of ISIS…especially in light of the fact that over the past 48 hours the ISIS flag now flies over yet another four Iraqi towns as they move southeast towards Baghdad itself.

Iraq’s slide back into chaos has its roots in 2011 when the last U.S. soldiers left the country.  The Obama Administration and the government of Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki had been engaged in months of negotiations in an attempt to reach a new status of forces agreement that would allow American soldiers to remain in Iraq to help support government forces.  (The Bush Administration had signed a status of forces agreement that required U.S. combat troops to leave Iraq by Dec. 31, 2011.)  When these talks failed, the stage was set for President Obama to fulfill his campaign promise to remove U.S. forces and end the war in Iraq.

Unfortunately, as pointed out by the Atlanta Conservative Examiner, it was much easier to remove U.S. troops than to end the war.  President Obama’s assumption was that American forces were the cause of the fighting in Iraq and that if American forces were removed, the war would end.  That turned out not to be the case, partly because of Iran.

The ‘Russian Bear’ vs. the man in ‘mom’ jeans


russia map“The referendum in Crimea was a clear violation of Ukrainian constitution and international law”

- Barack HUSSEIN Obama’s statement after Sunday’s Crimean vote

Well…well…the man who could care less about the U.S. Constitution suddenly cares about the Ukrainian constitution and international law…all while his very inaction’s helped fuel this current situation on. And now comes useless sanctions that Putin will just laugh at while calling Obama’s bluff as he sends Russian forces further into the Ukraine.

And those in Poland, Hungary, and the Czech Republic, and even those in Kazakhstan, are all now fearful they could be next.

Except for one…shameful cowards all

To have the inner strength to stand by one’s convictions and act in accordance with those beliefs, especially in spite of criticism…that’s the definition of courage. And those with courage act in defiance of any inner fear of reprisal they might have for they put others before themselves.

I think our Founder’s expected our leaders to be men of courage, especially when attending to ‘the people’s business.’ How disappointed they would be if they saw the Republicans of today cowering in fear before the man, who on Tuesday night, declared himself to be America’s first king…NO…dictator is more like it…for when Barack HUSSEIN Obama basically rendered Congress politically impotent by saying he will bypass them and do what he wants to do…he NOT only trampled on the Constitution, he totally rendered it null and void in his mind.
