Analyst: Obama pulls time to pass on to the new president all that “mess” that he created in the Middle East.

54
What the white house is doing in Syria and Iraq cannot be called politics as such. It is simply impossible to do even less to save these countries from the chaos that is happening there. Obama lost, and the entire mess would be passed on to the next elected one, ex-CIA analyst, now Fred Fleitz, vice president of the Center for Security Policy, writes in his article for Fox News. Article leads RIA News.




“Over the past two years, the Obama administration has twice announced changes in its policy to deal with the crisis in Syria and Iraq and the threat from the extremist terrorist group IG. However, both of these statements were another attempt to stop the numerous humiliations of American policy, which created an impression in the world community of the growing weakness and indecisiveness of the United States, ”says Fleitz.

The first “shift” in Washington’s policy, according to the expert, occurred in September of 2014, “when, after a series of public executions of the IG, the American president declared his readiness to completely defeat the terrorists thanks to the“ systematic campaign of air strikes ”in Iraq and Syria, the preparation of Syrian rebels and increasing support for the Iraqi army. ”

“The failure was immediately obvious - the air strikes in Syria did not stop the IS, the terrorists in Iraq took control of the city of Ramadi, despite the numerical superiority of the Iraqi army. The Iraqi army and Kurds demanded more weapons while the Obama administration was idle, ”he writes.

The next spectacular failure occurred this fall, "when the program to train the Syrian rebels for $ 500 million was failed, and Russia began to conduct a special operation in Syria." By this time, Iran has expanded its presence in Syria.

“Russian President Vladimir Putin ridiculed and ignored President Obama when he sent Russian troops to Syria in accordance with an agreement between the Russian Federation, Syria, Iraq and Iran,” writes the analyst.

Obama is trying to respond with a new course in foreign policy, but he looks even worse than the former.

“Without a clear strategy, the president sent Special Forces soldiers to 50 to help the Syrian rebels. After that, the American media reported that the US special forces advised not the Syrian rebels, as was intended, but the Kurds, who have their own interests in Syria, not connected with the fight against IS. In addition, this support by the US military Kurds began to harass Turkey, ”writes Flutetz.

It became clear to the US allies that Obama only pulls time until the moment when he will have to leave the post - “then he will be able to claim that he made attempts to change the situation,” but ... he did not have time. In the meantime, Russia has significantly increased its influence in the region, building a new alliance with a number of states.

According to the expert, the current inaction policy of Obama in the fight against terrorism can provoke grave consequences. “The weakness and incompetence of President Clinton’s foreign policy once unleashed Al-Qaeda, and now 11 of September of 2001 is in danger of recurring,” concludes Flutz.

              I thought, Dear Leo, over your comment. There was a thought, or rather a feeling, that Trump is some kind of Washington project. He (Trump) is very original and extravagant for conservative Americans. In general, he reminds me of Volfovich in some way, "there is plenty of movement and sweat, the end product is in short supply." laughing

          Obama has lost, and will transfer all this "mess" to the next chosen one

          Already write off everything to Obama.
          Always looking for the extreme.
          Everyone is to blame.
          You are all OBAMA there.
          It makes no difference who is in the presidency.
          The US system is such that there is basically a "talking head" in the president's chair.
          Obama demonstrates to the whole world all the meanness, meanness and venality of the "American way of life."

          What does the "MONKEY" have to do with the country, completely different people rule. There are only two parties, Democrats and Republicans, behind these parties there are groups of people who decide. All decisions of the President are decisions of this backstage. The President is just a talking head

          From this joy, Dear hydrox, there will be such harsh consequences that more than one generation will be raking, including in our country. All world trade is tied exclusively to the dollar. And when on TV with "aspiration of happiness" we are told that we with some country have switched to settlements in national currency and will soon get rid of the dollar, this is from the evil one, because the dollar is still taken as the equivalent of the cost. So the calculation in your own currencies is all just saving on buying a dollar. By the way, when bartering, the scenario is the same.

Especially now, when the spiral of the election race spins up, any sharp movements by the Obama administration on any issue can harm the Democrats and those who are behind us, so everything is limited to loud but empty statements by the US president, as well as by the delusional hooters of the talking heads of the State Department and only Kerry, hanging around like a scumbag dog all over the world, is trying to save the prestige of Obama personally and the US foreign policy as a whole!

Obama just set himself up because of the belief in the possibility of a virtual way to change reality in my opinion. Well, like what we said, this is reality. Of course, informational influence on society takes place, but actions are also needed, and they are the opposite of words. Moreover, they pay attention to us and we show what it is (reality).

    Obama's America needs a good enema. The best remedy for exceptional constipation. And he will be done. So far, Russia has applied castor oil. Recall how Schweik cured Dr. Grünstein of the simulation by saying: While their comrades fought at the front, they imagined that they would lie in bed, receive hospital meals and wait for the war to end. But they were wrong, scoundrels! And you are mistaken, you sons of bitches! Twenty years later, you will scream with a scream when you dream about how you simulated here.

    And what remains to be done by this frail, but ambitious president with incomprehensible tribal roots. Immediately, for some reason I remember a video where he funny jogs along the corridors of the White House or seriously exercises with female dumbbells. So in his politics - one imitation, verbiage and for some reason hatred of Russia (before 60-80 it was thought that a black man should be nice to our country).
