How could President Obama’s foreign policy be described as anything other than utter confusion and disorder? The Middle East is best example of America’s foreign policy of chaos under the Obama administration. The world is shaking its collective head at the mess Obama’s policies have made of Libya and Egypt. But, the crown jewel of chaos has to be the mess in Syria and Iraq.
To be fair, it was the previous idiot President who decided to dethrone the long time Sunni Muslim president of Iraq and allow the majority of Iraqis to elect a Shia Muslim president, who would naturally ally his country with our worst enemy in the region, Iran, a Shia Muslim nation. But then, our current Idiot-In-Chief ended the war in Iraq without getting a Status of Force Agreement (SOFA). He didn’t get the SOFA because unlike all the other SOFAs we have in the region, Obama insisted that the agreement be approved by the Iraqi Parliament instead of by decree of the Iraqi president. Had he gotten the SOFA Iran would not be using Iraqi air space to send arms and fighters to assist the Assad regime in Syria, who Obama wants to dethrone.
So, today we have a civil war raging in Syria, which as predicted by this humble observer of the asylum we all have live in and many others has spilled over into Iraq. Who is the Obama administration supporting in these two (one?) civil wars? Everyone!
Think about it. In Syria our government is arming and in some cases training Sunni Muslim militias against the Shia Muslim forces of Assad and Iran and Iraq. In Iraq, on the other hand, because their army has nearly all deserted, our government is now arming and possibly training, Shia Muslim militias to fight against the same Sunni Muslim militias we are supporting in Syria. Does that mean we are indirectly supporting the fight against Iran in Syria and indirectly supporting Iran in Iraq?
Is it any wonder why America’s influence in the region has all but disappeared?
Well, that’s what I’m thing. What are your thoughts?
