The Consequences of Wars Ended
Posted by madjillmom on August 20, 2014
I am pretty certain that Obama didn’t spend a lot of time paying attention to his history teachers. He was born in the era of Vietnam and only really thinks that wars are “ended”.
Enter ISIS, a bloodthirsty barbarian non-state Army. They don’t care that Obama said the War in Iraq was over. They won’t care that Obama has decided a date to end the War in Afghanistan. All the extremist of Islam don’t buy into the War being OVER. They have just waited nearby until the coast is clear, training, teaching their children to hate, and raising money. Obama seems to not understand that the Wars aren’t over at his date certain. Even in the 50’s, the Korean War was a draw, but the US understood that there must be soldiers left behind to keep the situation from degrading. Now there is a void. A strong America is no more, so others are stepping into that void. Putin and ISIS are on the rise because there is no strong America to push back.
The Communists and Barbarians don’t think like Obama. Their wars are won, not ended.
I hope that the death of the American journalist James Foley has not been in vain.
Perhaps Obama should stop saying there will be no “boots on the ground” every chance he gets. It sends a message of weakness that others are happy to exploit.
