Bashir Assad, the brutal dictator of Syria, has been told by Barack Hussein Obama, the President of the United States, (who during his campaign said we should not be in other countries’ business) to stop being a brutal dictator and killing his people. I think Assad respects what Obama says as much as I do, which would be not at all. You see, brutal dictators usually have no patience for those who try to trample on their killing fields (history is rife with the stories), and when Obama set up a new standard for which we bomb from the air, i.e. not a war, but a kinetic military operation to bombÂ people on the ground (to save the people on the ground), he opened himself up to providing similar protection of even more people, in more countries. He and his Faculty Lounge Administration have created a mockery of the USA with their newÂ foreign policy. I wish it was going to be Jimmy Carter II; my fear is it’s going to lead to a nuclear-armed Iran, and that would be the least consequenceÂ under the weak “professor” of nothing. Inane Foreign Policy:
Syrian tanks took up positions outside the city of Hama on Saturday, where tens of thousands of people took to the streets to mourn the deaths of at least 65 protesters gunned down by security forces there the day before.
The governmentâ€™s violent crackdown against a three-month-old popular uprising continued, with helicopter gunships killing 10 people in a neighboring province and residents of Hama bracing for a military assault that would be the first on the city since the government bombed it in 1982, killing at least 10,000 people.
With memories of that massacre still vivid, Hama had been slow to join the uprising against the government of President Bashar al-Assad.
But on Friday, protesters poured out of mosques and marched in record numbers toward the cityâ€™s main square, said a 27-year-old resident who gave his name as Hassan, many carrying roses to give to security forces. Before they reached the square, Al Aasy, security forces opened fire.
The SyriansÂ and the Iranians are the two groups that Obama seems to be letting die like dogs in the streets, without air power to stop their oppressors. When the people being slaughtered see that the USA is standing by while they are killed, they can only wonder why this is happening.Â Why are they not protected?Â I have the same question. My preference is not to be blowing up countries from the skies at all, however, the decision was made by Obama to do so and he ought to be consistent.Â Â Mr. Obama, why have you made the choices you have in America’s foreign policy?
