Nero fiddled while Rome burned. Obama? He putts
Obama, without Congressional approval (naturally), has sent 250 or so troops to Iraq to help “train” the beleaguered victims of the terrorists overtaking the country he all but abandoned. Which is, of course, nothing more than a move to placate critics and create a veneer of concern over the disintegration of Iraq and the ascension of an Islamist caliphate, beginning with its own nation state.
Then it’s off to golf — flying his giant jumbo jet into a drought-plagued area to play a round in the desert.
Obama is a Manchurian candidate — a description I offer up to those of you who continue to wrestle with how he can do what he does, or who continue to debate whether he’s bumblingly incompetent and distant or a dedicated soldier to the transnational progressive (read: worldwide Marxist / communist) totalitarian cause.
What’s being done domestically follows Cloward-Piven and uses the tactics of divide and conquer Alinsky promoted; what’s being done internationally is an attempt to weaken US force projection and “level the playing field,” as if somehow it’s appropriate to suggest that mullahs calling for the destruction of entire countries and religious groups are equal to constitutional republics that stand for the rule of law and equality before it.
I’ve long called Obama the faculty lounge president, largely because his Said-infested ideological mindset — straight from Orientalism — combined with his Marxist upbringing and training in community divisiveness and mau mauing the flak catchers, underpins his entire worldview: America is an imperialist entity whose people have risen on the misfortunes of noble savages elsewhere. And people like him need to rectify that — even if it means becoming a king (and enjoying the trappings of that power) to do so, because it’s all for a moral cause.
The US needs right now not 250 troops in Iraq training those abandoning their posts before the threat of 7th-century-type barbarism. The US needs right now to show that, finally, it is ready to fight and win a war — which requires a massive show of air power and heavy bombing, and the absolute and utter destruction of the enemy.
Unfortunately for the US, Obama’s allegiances are more with those we’re fighting then with those he’s sworn to defend. And yes, I truly do believe that. Because there’s no other way to explain a foreign policy that has allowed the entirety of the middle east to swing toward control by Islamists, that is critical almost solely of Israel, and which has stood by and done nothing while Russia and China try to recreate the conditions of the Cold War.
This is a Bill Ayers wet dream. And the only thing missing is the death camps he once longed to see erected to put down those undesirables who wouldn’t come around to his grand plans of a Utopia in which he and his like ruled over the masses like so many credentialed tyrants.
