Obama alluded to the Arab Spring, saying that his administration will help new democratic governments find their footing as they battle against extremism and economic collapse. But he totally ignored the Israeli-Palestinian crisis, frozen U.S.-Iran relations, and the Asia pivot, which are three major preoccupations of current U.S. foreign policy. And this was not by accident.
President Obama's team is trying to create the narrative that Obama is an optimist at heart who hates war and has to be pulled into history against his will. We are led to believe that foreign policy is not on his mind and that his political energy is dedicated to domestic changes.
According to this factless narrative, if a crisis erupts in the Middle East and leads to a wide-scale war it won't be the consequence of the policies of his administration, but a natural event that Obama did not foresee nor desire.
But the evidence tells a different story.
Far from protecting the peace and ensuring the stability of the Middle East, Obama has been working against both throughout his first term. Obama's early covert backing of the Jihadist terrorist groups in Syria proved that he is reckless and actively looking for an unnecessary war with Syria. The crimes committed by these radical, foreign-backed Jihadist groups against the Syrian people are horrific, and have resulted in the needless deaths of many Syrians.
Obama's political statements regarding Syria during his first term were incredibly irresponsible and reflect a psychosis in the foreign policy elite. In August 2011, Obama arrogantly demanded that Assad step down. If Assad had listened to Obama, Al-Qaeda would be in control of many parts in Syria now, a reality that the majority of Syrians do not want.
It's obvious that Obama doesn't care what the Syrian people want or how much they suffer at the hands of the mindless terrorists who make up Al Qaeda. He is not interested in their cooperation, but their submission. He pretends to be a peace-seeking optimist, but his administration's policies are inviting tragedy, trauma, and turmoil for generations to come.
What is even worse and unforgivable is that Obama deviously attaches his presidency to Martin Luther King's untouchable legacy, using it as a political cloak to cover his war-making record. What a devil.
II. The American-Iranian Landscape: Tragedy On The Horizon?
"We will show the courage to try and resolve our differences with other nations peacefully. Not because we are naive about the dangers we face, but because engagement can more durably lift suspicion and fear." - President Barack Hussein bin Obama, the Beneficent, the Merciful.
"While U.S. officials regularly excoriate Tehran for either playing for time or being too internally conflicted to negotiate seriously, it is Washington that has not been diplomatically serious. Iran has consistently been prepared to accept more intrusive monitoring of, perhaps negotiated limits on, its nuclear activities, if Western powers recognize its right to enrich uranium under international safeguards. But President Obama, like his predecessor, refuses to acknowledge Iran's right to enrich, for this would require acknowledging the Islamic Republic as a legitimate political order representing legitimate national interests, and as a rising regional power unwilling to subordinate its foreign policy to Washington, as for example Washington regularly expected of Egypt under Sadat and Mubarak. This is why Hillary and I say that Obama has done more damage even than George W. Bush because he has discredited the idea of engagement by saying he tried but failed when in fact he has not seriously tried." [18:05 - 19:20 in this video].Obama's presidency is all about public salesmanship and religious worship. Evidence? Facts? Reality? LOL. Don't be silly. The facts do not hinder a rebellious deity like the President who heads the Satanic Republic of the United States. His word is reality.
