s point I'm still amazed that Obama just continues to ruin this country. Obama has made mistake after mistake since inauguration day 2009. Honestly I
believe if a preisdent tried to ruin our country, I'm talking about from day one he actively sought to be remembered as the worst preisdent in the
history of the Untied States of America he would surely to where Obama finds himself today. We all know of his blunders, his lies, is disregard for
the constitution , and the crimnal scandals that never stop so for this post I'll focus on his dangerous foreign policy specifically the Middle
I served around 5 years as a intelligence analysts in the US Army. I had three deployments all in Afghanistan. I was fortunate to come back home in
one piece unlike many others and I tell you all this not to be congratulated or anything like it, just to say war should only be made if theres a
clear and apparent threat to our country.
Let's start with the horrfic civil war in Syria. My opinion on what the US stance should be may be in a minority but please hang in there with me for
a second. The Syrian conflict should not in anyway be downplayed as just another sectarian war that has been waged for thousands of years in the
region. Normally I would 100% be of the philosphy to let them all kill each other. To make matters worst the best plan for the strengthing of the the
US would entail helping some extremists groups we have been fighting since 9/11. I personally would never want US involment but the benefits of this
temporarily alliance would in the long run soldifiey the Untied States continued presence in the region for the foreseeable future while
simultaneously weaking the power that Iran and Iran front groups (Hezzbollah) have6 in the reign.
First what I believe the American strategy should have been from the beginning. .
Somebody, some agency that is keeping a thumb on the pulse of the world must of seen the strategic importance a unstable Syria could potentially mean
to the Untied States and it's Gulf allies. I believe even a decent preisdent would have fully committed to backing are Arab friends in the Gulf.
Whats great is despite there differences the Saudis and Israel are of both of firm belief that both of there greatest threat is Iran, especially a
nuclear Iran. The back chanels between the two countrys are open and they seem to be on the same page. The enemy of my enemy... I'm not saying a
proxy war would be easy but I do believe if we committed to supplying the rebel forces with means to wage war from the begaining we would be
victorious. Iran I think we can all agree were going to support Assad regardless of what we did.
It's just if Assad and Syria was dealt with from the begaining how America has always operated we and our allies would be much better off. Iran would
be a island. Syria and Irag both unstable around them. There cut off from the Mediterranean. The cards fell just right for us to change the game in
the Middle East and Obama didn't pull the trigger. If he did we come out witha strong alliance of gulf states. Israel, Suadi Araubi, Qatar, Jordan
all very happy we we did what America has said it would, we helped them when they asked and not only that it's a game changer.
I know many wouldn't agree with my opinion. Probably mostly out of concern doing so would instigate a larger regional war or even WW3. I think if
the situation was handled better from the start without the grandstanding and political rethroic keeping it a terrible civil war with only crazy
extremist saying what they always say that it's Americas fault. I just dom't believe Russia would have risked a huge war for Assad but It still
comes back to how Obama has handled himself on the worlds stage. Putin certainly doesn't respect or fear Obama or Obamas lead Untied States at all. I
can't believe I'm saying this but Putin wouldn't get away with this with George Bush.
It's kind of ironic that by the time George Bush finished his two terms I was convinced that there would never be a worst preisdent for the rest of
my life, Wow I think back on that a lot because I was totally convinced I was right and as it turns out I couldn't have been anymore wrong.
