Military Review

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.

              Задумался, Уважаемый Лев, над Вашим комментарием. Возникла мысль, или скорее ощущение, что Трамп, это какой-то проект Вашингтона. Уж очень он (Трамп) оригинален и экстравагантен для консервативных американцев. Он мне вообще в чем-то Вольфовича напоминает, "движухи и пота в избытке, конечного продукта - в недостатке". laughing

          Already write off everything to Obama.
          Always looking for the extreme.
          Everyone is to blame.
          Вы там все "ОБАМЫ".
          It makes no difference who is in the presidency.
          Система США, такова, что в кресле президента в основном "говорящая голова".
          Обама демонстрирует на весь мир всю низость, подлость и продажность "американского образа жизни".

          От этой радости, Уважаемый hydrox, будут такие жесткие последствия, которые разгребать будет не одно поколение, в том числе и в нашей стране. Весь мировой товарооборот завязан исключительно на доллар. И когда по телевизору с "придыханием от щастя" нам сообщают что мы с какой-то страной перешли на расчет в национальной валюте и скоро избавимся от доллара, это от лукавого, ибо эквивалентом стоимости всё равно берется доллар. Так что расчет в собственных валютах это все во лишь экономия на покупке доллара. Кстати при бартере сценарий тот-же.

      We talked about Obama getting tired all over for a very long time! 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!

После чего американские СМИ сообщили, что спецназ US advises not to Syrian rebels, as intended, but to Kurdswho have their own interests in Syria, not related to the fight against IS. Besides, this support by the U.S. military Kurds began to bother Turkey»

    “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'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).

    Kop4eni-Luceferka will create his toothless politicians in Schorold not only in the near-east. Vee will see 4 things to do in Zuid-America. There, he builds coalition targets against them. Then they (the frame) of the pitats will tear this coalition 4 across Cuba.
