ISIS did not exist when George W. Bush left the White House. ISIS did not exist in the first few years of Barack Obama’s time in the White House. ISIS only became a thing when the White House, out of pride and arrogance, decided it was better to placate the left by withdrawing all troops from Iraq rather than help the Iraqis maintain their stability.
A young boy has died, washed up on the shores of Europe. His picture has shocked the world and his death is direct result of Barack Obama fleeing the Middle East, tail tucked between his leg, so he could pridefully say he ended a war he never wanted.
The boy is dead because Barack Obama chose to abdicate American leadership in the world.
To be sure, the direct blame lies with those who failed to see the boy to safety. And blame lies with ISIS for creating a situation where people had to flee.
But none of that would have happened if Barack Obama had kept Americans in Iraq to see the country through to stability. We know, from Iraqi leaders and American personnel, that they all knew Iraq would destabilize without us there. We know that Barack Obama and his Administration worked very hard to create a situation where he could say we had to leave Iraq.
That little boy would not have died had Barack Obama stood strong in Iraq. Crisis and war were all predicted when Barack Obama decided to flee Iraq. All the predictions came true and the humanitarian crisis is a direct result of what he did.
That dead child is Barack Obama’s fault.
Me Here....I agree! Usurper Soetoro has blown the hard won victory in Iraq.
I have served in the "Sandbox" (Iraq) in 2003-04. The Iraqis I got to talk with were glad we came to remove Saddam from power.
One of the well documented way Saddam got rid of those he felt were a threat was to dig a hole, tie them up and blindfold them and tape a hand grenade to their chest. A long string was tied to the pin. The victim was pushed into the hole and the string was pulled. BOOM!
That isn't much different than the mass beheading, shootings and even burning people alive that we have seen from ISIS.
Our policy in the Middle East has gone from victory to disaster. We should be arming and aiding with military personnel Coptic Christians and Kurds. Instead Usurper Soetoro turns his back on these friends and ignore their pleas for help when ISIS attacks and slaughters them. The press barely reports these disasters.
ISIS destroys World History sites that don't fit their warped view of Islam. The world and Usurper Soetoro just says "you shouldn't have done that" and does nothing more.
Now Usurper Soetoro wants a deal with ISIS's main supporter, Iran, that many experts say would pave the way for Iran to have nuclear weapons. How long would it be before Iran gives ISIS these weapons?
This dead Kurdish boy is a symbol of the many failures of Usurper Soetoro. I just hope this picture begins to change how ISIS and Iran are dealt with.
