Obama successfully completed the North African caliphate with the gift of Libyas resources to be governed by al Qaeda, to the benefit of the upcoming Egyptian MB
In the meanwhile, Afghanistan and Iraq are getting ready to fall directly into Iran... phase 2
Needless to say, they will collectively challenge Israel and the West. The MB is already declaring successes by calling for the united states of islam...
In the meanwhile, we are gearing up for elections... what do you be that there will be a orchestrated insurrection here while the mideast starts it war and Obama declares martial law and puts of elections?
Whether he does or doesnt, he has used his EPA to start starving the nation for energy.....
The bamer is thowing us under the bus!
