Civil War has become the norm for countries within the Middle East and abroad, as year 6 of the Obama campaign reaches its conclusion. Yemen, Iraq, Libya, Syria and Ukraine were all stable countries, and some were even considered America’s allies in the war on terrorism. However, 6 years of irresponsible appeasement, some misguided sales of weaponry, and a policy based on appeasement later, most of these countries have been nearly completely destroyed – the people of these nations have either been murdered or displaced in tragic numbers.
The violent, unlawful annexation of large parts of Ukraine by Russia has been a looming issue for the Obama Administration. Drastically different counts of casualties have appeared throughout the media: Germany’s special services estimate the probable number of deceased Ukrainian servicemen and civilians at up to 50,000 people; American and English papers report the number to be closer to 5,400 people. Russia’s systematic take-over of Ukraine, which many felt was resource motivated, was responded to with light sanctions being placed on Russia. Putin’s invasion, which was forbidden by international law, marks the first major border changes inside Europe in the post-World War II era.
Libya, which under Gaddafi was an ally against al Qaeda, was the origin of many of the weapons which would eventually make their way to ISIS. After the Obama administration approved weapons delivery by the Arab countries of Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Kuwait and the UAA, weapons and machinery began to freely flow to any group looking to overthrow the Gaddafi regime. The black flag of al Qaeda now flies freely over much of the country, leaving many in the International community to doubt the existence of the “democratically minded rebels” the Obama administration thought it was aiding. At least 30,000 people were killed and 50,000 wounded in Libya’s six-month civil war. Under a no-fly zone established by America, radical extremist groups went on to take over the majority of Libya.
Syria and Iraq:
Syria and Iraq were not safe from the Obama illusion of “friendly, moderate Jihadists.” Using the same flowery rhetoric of genocide prevention and democratic rebes as was used in the decimated country of Libya, the Obama administration, once again, endorsed assisting Islamic rebels in a fight against an established regime. With a steady flow of weaponry coming from the now terrorist controlled Libya, the brigades of Jihadists soon transformed into ISIS, the largest, wealthiest terrorist organization in history (International estimates have ISIS earning about 3 million American dollars a day). The Sunni terrorists quickly swept through much of Syria and Iraq, killing and raping all who stood in the way. More than 140,000 people, over 7,000 of them children, have been killed in Syria’s uprising-turned-civil war. The conflict eventually spread to Iraq, where thousands have died or been relocated – and even the second largest city, Mosul, is currently controlled by the terrorist organization.
When Iranian backed militias began their assault on Yemen this past September, many in the current administration dismissed the action as a passing event. Yemen, once called a success and a true ally against terror by President Obama, has now devolved into a crisis. This past week, the president of Yemen fled to Saudi Arabia, while all American troops and employees evacuated from the civil war torn country. As Iranian troops continue their assault on parts of Yemen and Iraq, the Obama administration has assured the public that nuclear negotiations with Iran are progressing positively.
These 5 countries began 2009 as secure, sovereign states, all equipped to assist America against the tyrannical forces of Russia, al Qaeda and Iran. Rather than assisting the allies America has had for decades, the Obama administration’s cockiness has led to unprecedented, foolish maneuvers, leaving scores of people dead or relocated. Given the administration’s support of radical, al Qaeda linked organizations from Libya to Syria, can anyone still doubt that Barrack Obama truly doesn’t believe in terrorism. If America has another 8 years of this kind of leadership, children and adults will begin to differentiate old and new maps not by the existence of the USSR, but rather by the quickly expanding Islamic state.
