Just say ‘No’
This president has continuously misrepresented the purpose and performance of our military actions in both Afghanistan and Iraq — as a pretext to lead our stunning retreat from the advances purchased with our blood and treasure once he assumed office . . .
. . . And the world listened and observed.
This president has continuously made imprudent off-the-cuff remarks revealing his geopolitical naiveté — as if he truly believes the fictitious basis of his Nobel Peace prize . . .
. . . And our foes listened and observed.
This president acted in the most disingenuous manner with the American people on every issue of the day — from ObamaCare to Benghazi to the definition of marriage to the IRS and NSA scandals — with a stunning complicity by the supposed adversarial free press . . .
. . . And friends and foes made their calculations on the measure of his character and reliability.
This president has unwittingly painted himself into a deep corner and finds himself in serious political trouble.
So now, he and John Kerry and others claim that the “world” mustact — even though the “world” including the United States, did nothing militarily in response to far-worse WMD attacks by Saddam Hussein in the 1980s and ’90s.
Our one declared ally is hedging her bets: France is ready to jump ship — leaving us solely as the self-defined “world.”
In all practicality, nobody is willing to join this Coalition of the Unwitting for an ill-defined adventure in Syria — and for sound reasons.
It is vitally important for our representatives to note that Obama’s last foray with Libya has left an open Hell of chaos for the people there; Egypt is well on her way.
This new attraction for our president simply cannot end well. No country — especially Russia — views us as a serious power run by good leadership. Consequently, there will be serious pushback from any action by us until we have our own regime change.
Just say no.
