Obama’s Dismal Failure On The World Stage

Benghazi MIA Obama Hillary SC Obama’s Dismal Failure on the World Stage

With all of the turmoil surrounding the Syrian crisis, one has to wonder why Obama has become an afterthought in the negotiations with Putin and Assad over the use of chemical weapons in the Syrian civil war. The reason is simple. Obama, who has no leadership skills despite liberal protestations to the contrary, has successfully transformed the most powerful position on the planet into that of a bumbling simpleton.

Something people need to realize is that this is not new. It is the Obama track record throughout his entire presidency.

In Iran, Obama stated that all options, including nuclear weapons, were on the table in preventing Iran from obtaining the capability to produce nuclear weapons. Ahmadinejad called him on it, labeling Obama an “amateur politician.” Obama’s response was to do nothing. He deferred to the economic sanctions that did not have any impact whatsoever. At the time, allegations from several sources arose that Ahmadinejad was indeed building a nuclear facility that would be capable of producing nuclear weapons.

In Korea, Obama, in an attempt to portray himself differently than what happened with his encounter with Ahmadinejad, stating that he would not follow the same path he did with Iran. Yet, what did he do? Obama issued economic sanctions. Did it work this time around? Of course not! North Korea built an operational nuclear facility and shut it down during negotiations with the U.S. and China (they have recently restarted it.) So, North Korea played with Obama as if he were a yo-yo. Obama’s response was again to do nothing.

In Libya, Obama waited as France responded to Qaddafi’s brutal crackdown on his own people. Then Obama’s response was to implement a “no-fly zone” and launch missile strikes against Qadaffi once it became apparent that he had indeed embarrassed himself once again on the world stage. (The price tag for only being peripherally involved was well into the hundreds of millions of dollars.)

What happened next? We have four Americans, including the U.S. ambassador, killed in Benghazi in a premeditated attack. Obama’s response was to blatantly lie about the cause, while waiting for the media to shift the focus onto something else. Obama has held no one accountable for this, and it has been over a year.

In Egypt, Obama openly supported the Muslim Brotherhood as they deposed Hosni Mubarak, who had frequently worked with the United States at times dating back to the Carter Administration, and took over the government. When the Egyptian military seized control of the country in an obvious coup, Obama refused to characterize it as one. Since U.S. law requires all foreign aid to be suspended to countries that have been overthrown in a military coup, Obama questioned whether or not he should suspend such aid.

What has happened in Egypt due to Obama’s lack of leadership? It has devolved into violence and open fighting in what has become an undeclared civil war. Obama has also managed to turn a country that once worked with us into one that accuses him of supporting terrorism in Egypt (and has even accused him of being a member of Muslim Brotherhood.)

In Syria, Kerry makes an off-the-cuff statement about turning over the chemical weapons to international control, which Putin seized upon. Obama immediately retracts that as not an authentic proposal. Then when Putin showed the leadership Obama is lacking and brokered the deal with Assad, Obama immediately flip-flopped, saying that he actually discussed this with Putin at the G-20 summit.

Putin has already characterized the Obama Administration as pathetic. Assad is now demanding concessions from the United States before he will turn over their chemical weapons. Obama then makes a speech to the American people where he says that we might attack Syria, but we are going to wait and see if the Russian proposal will work first.

Despite his own statements to the contrary, Obama’s credibility on the world stage is so non-existent that he is waiting on Putin to make up his mind on what will happen in Syria. Obama has done something that most political pundits and historians thought would be impossible.

Obama has surpassed Jimmy Carter as the worst president of the United States.

Why is anyone still surprised at this point?

    The pothead president was a failure from the day he took office and if he looked more white and had a white woman like his mother who just loved her meat black for a wife he colored would never have voted him in.

    Putin would be a better President than these rumblin stumblin bumblin fumblin actions of a total crack head. Speeches to Obloviate are just campaign rhetoric and most people just lap it up. But do you every deliver a speech to be a true leader instead of a total fool, to bring this country together instead of just clowning around, to inspire people to do their best for America, instead of just trust the fool here. Definitely NOT A KING like: "My fellow Americans, ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country."
    Kennedy like Reagan were true leaders:
    1 Iran: Iran protests began the night of 6/12/09, following the announcement that incumbent Ahmadinejad had won nearly 60% despite several reported irregularities. However, all three opposition candidates claimed that the votes were manipulated and the election was rigged, and candidates Mohsen Rezaee and Mousavi have lodged official complaints. Despite the relative peaceful nature of the protests, the Police and the Basij (a paramilitary group) suppressed them by using batons, pepper spray, sticks and, in some cases, firearms; the most widely known victim was Neda Agha-Soltan, who was shot by a Basij and her last moments were uploaded to YouTube and was broadcast around the world. AT THIS TIME a US leader would of seen that the Iranians wanted regime change and would of had it with a true US leader.
    2 North Korea: Public distribution system for food controlled by the central government collapsed long ago, and does not provide sufficient food to keep the mass of the people properly fed. Many people now rely on private farmers markets to survive. But people have access to the farmer's markets only if they have sufficient income to buy food, and many don't, which is why there are such high rates of severe acute malnutrition. Any government which cannot ensure, by whatever means, that its people eat, will be short lived, unless its police and military remain loyal and ruthlessly suppress popular unrest or uprisings. If food prices in North Korea spike rapidly enough in the first half of 2013 as the 2012 harvest runs out, public anger could lead to uprisings. AT THIS TIME a US leader would of seen that the North Koreans want regime change and would have it with a true US leader.
    3 Libya: The US had good relations with Gaddafi ever since he gave up his nuclear weapons program. Gaddafi also knew MB and al Qaeda were problems and Gaddafi was the only one keeping them under control. Once al Qaeda was redefined as rebels fighting arab spring (what the hell is that anyway). AT THIS TIME a US leader would of seen that Gaddafi needed help handling al Qaeda and a US leader would of helped him and Benghazi would of never happened, as well as illegal gun running to al Qaeda in Syria.
    4 Egypt: The US had good relations with Mubarak for over 40 years. Once al Qaeda was seen as rebels fighting arab spring (what the hell is that anyway). AT THIS TIME a US leader would of seen that Mubarak needed help handling al Qaeda and a US leader would of helped him find out what the egyptian people wanted to keep the peace with our best arab friend in the area. Obama has lost the trust of our arab friend and they are now leaning toward Russia.
    5 Syria: We still have to wait for the UN report: Obama wants a fast strike to either:
    Wipe Israel off the face of the earth, or Give his MB members Syria for the caliphate, or Give Saudi Arabia and Qatar Syria for a pipeline.
    AT THIS TIME a US leader would wait for the results of the UN inspectors!
    Give back the Nobel you war criminal fool!
