We are going back to war and it is the result of the foreign policy of Obama and Hillary. When you act weak as the leader of the world, really bad people do really bad things knowing they will get away with it. Obama started with the apology tour and speech in Cairo, he did not support the revolutionaries in Iran in 2009, he did not lead in Libya, he supported the Muslim Brotherhood and he refused to leave the 25,000 troops in Iraq that the military and CIA said were absolutely needed to maintain peace and to stop what has now happened. And on and on. By failing to react powerfully when Foley was beheaded he sent a message of indecision and weakness. By failing to really stand up to Putin, he has now presented the world and especially Europe with a major crisis of cold war proportions. He did not really stand up for Israel, and he failed to make sure they were rearmed with the shells, bombs and funding needed to carry on the war, and so Hamas and Iran are encouraged to fight on. He refused to support the moderate rebels in Syria, and he refused to rearm Ukraine. He folded on Iran and now instead of the sanctions put in place by Congress, the Iranian economy has rebounded and the pressure is off while they dangle a deal and Obama falls for the lure because he is so desperate to do any deal, no matter how bad. Obama encouraged an isolationist mentality, and that was supported by Rand Paul which undercut the political will of the American electorate to do what was needed in the world. So now we are faced with a major terror threat worse potentially than 9-11, and a world in utter turmoil very similar to what occurred in 1914 and 1938. Go study your history books and the parallels are strong.
