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.

Weak Obama Won’t Call Putin and Chinese Premier

Posted by madjillmom on June 27, 2013

Obama says he shouldn’t have to call Putin or the Premier of China on this Ed Snowden issue. Obama’s administration is running around telling us all how people might die because of Snowden’s crimes. But Obama can’t be bothered to call Putin. That is because Obama knows he can’t beat Putin. Obama will lose face and the whole world will then have verification that Obama and his America are very weak. Smart Diplomacy!

When Obama told Medvedev he could be more flexible after the election, we didn’t know that he would be actually bending over and dropping his pants for Putin.

Obama Being More Flexible with Putin

Posted by madjillmom on October 13, 2012

Remember when the hot mike incident happened with Obama and the then Russian President Medvedev? Obama told Medvedev that after his re-election he could be so much more flexible with Russia.

This week, Russia has come out and told the US that they will not extend the 1992 agreement where the US helped Russia safeguard its nukes while the defunct USSR was having trouble. The agreement was extended a few times and has been beneficial to the US. The concern was nuclear material going missing and ending up the hands of bad guys.  So now Russia is in a position of strength and they no longer want this agreement to continue.

When you telegraph weakness and lead from behind, the various governments of the world see no downside with pushing us aside or trying to weaken our position.  This is some of that smart diplomacy Obama has promised us all.  When we project weakness, every tin-pot dictator or Libyan or Al Qaeda bad guy thinks “why not?”.
