President Obama under pressure from poll numbers going way south and after stating days ago that he has no strategy in regard to ISIS he finally took a stand in his speech tonight to the nation of actions he should have taken a long time ago. Naturally he started with the same old song and dance that he pulled out the troops out of Iraq as he promised and drawing down from Afghanistan and that America is safer then before and the very next sentence he started it by telling We The People ” that we continue to face a terrorist threat.” On the one hand we are safer then before and on the other hand we stand the threat of terrorist attacks. The question is how can we be safer then before yet we still have a threat of a terrorist attack? The point being Obama knows that America is not safe and as I have mentioned in my post yesterday, if Obama would have told us in his speech tonight that he would close our southern border to all kinds of irregular types of traffic I would have taken Obama’s speech much more serious. No matter what Obama does overseas as long as our border remains unsecured We The People are not safe.
The title of my post tonight reflects the fact that Obama helped create ISIS which he did. He went against most of the opinions from his military staff that he should not pull out of Iraq unless he left behind at least 30 thousand troops to protect Iraq from threats such as what we have seen from ISIS. If these troops would have remained in Iraq it would not have created a vacuum, ISIS would not have gotten a grip in Iraq and start their beheadings to whomever didn’t want to convert to their radical Islamic beliefs, mainly Christians. Like President Bush warned in 2007 if Iraq was to be left unprotected such as removing troops prematurely we would only have to go back in and this is what we see today.
Once again Obama announced to the whole world that he would not send into battle our combat troops. Is his ego that great that he has to say this for his left-wing base because he is extending our role in the Middle East again. I would never say something like that considering you never know what type of theater this will become. If the United States said this during the outbreak of World War I and World War II you and I would be speaking German today. Obama’s foreign policy has been defined lately as “Don’t do stupid stuff.” The only stupid I see is the person who got us into this mess with the ISIS, so now Obama has to get us out of the mess that he helped create for the sake of We The People.
