If actions speak louder than words, maybe the American public should get a hearing test, because Barack Obama’s actions have begun to draw some serious accusations from around the world, and the public has been slow to acknowledge the gravity of it. The President has recently been blamed from several sides for no less than the very existence of ISIS, for its robustness, for actively protecting them and for importing them to the US. This is unprecedented territory.
But it’s not a conspiracy theory, and it’s not much of a secret. Just today, Russian PM Dmitry Medvedev openly accused Obama’s administration of being directly – and uniquely – responsible for the rise of ISIS: “The Islamic State has grown strong due to the irresponsible policy of the United States.” This is hardly a new thought as evidenced here, here and here:
Also today, Politico reported on Obama in Malaysia blaming Republicans, and it expended a great deal of effort to reach out to the President and tell him he needs to change his strategy against ISIL/ISIS.
The Earl of Taint had an interesting one-paragraph summary of the President’s Malaysia statement, entitled Obama Says Ignore ISIL and It Will Go Away:
[He] Vows to employ “every aspect of American power” to destroy the non-islamic “killers with good social media” that you needn’t worry about because they’re a fantastic nothingburger of importance standing on the wrong side of history and we have better ideas. Also being afraid that they might murder our children only encourages them to murder our children so let’s take a breath and remain true to the values we all hold dear, kiss the rattlesnakes on the lips and ignore the occasional setbacks.
Meanwhile, the entire country of Belgium is on lockdown, and its citizens are being told to “stay at home” because their safety cannot be guaranteed in the face of “concrete” threats. Obama’s own State Department has warned Americans to stay away from the Vatican entirely because of the imminent threat of bombings. This is ignorable??? This is being blown out of proportion, Barack?
Here at home this weekend, national security expert Fred Fleitz called the administration’s assurances about its Syrian immigration activities “outright false” and “lies.” The Administration claims it is moving forward on its ambitious immigration plan for Syrian refugees out of compassion, but it is simultaneously engaged in action to deport specifically Christian refugees on several other fronts. Your words speak, but actions speak louder, Mr. President. What are you really trying to accomplish here? It doesn’t seem to have much to do with America’s security. Where I come from, there’s a particular word for an official who ignores the safety of those he is sworn to protect and seeks only to benefit their enemies.
