Leading from behind leads to global chaos
The tragic events that took place in Libya and Egypt this week were the inevitable consequences of weak U.S. leadership. America and the world cannot afford four more such years.
In Benghazi, four Americans including U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens were murdered in a coordinated attack on the U.S. consulate by Islamic militants. On the same day, al Qaeda released a video in which leader Ayman al-Zawahri eulogized Abu Yahya al-Libi, a Libyan al Qaeda commander believed killed in June by a U.S. drone strike. This was no coincidence.
In Cairo, demonstrators upset over an allegedly anti-Islamic film trailer being circulated on YouTube spray-painted the outside of the U.S. embassy with anti-American slogans, then scaled the walls, hauled down the American flag and ripped it to pieces. Old Glory was replaced by a black jihadist banner as the crowd chanted, Obama, Obama there are still a billion Osamas.
American inadequacy was compounded in the communications crisis surrounding the incident. Our Cairo embassy put out a statement even before the flag was torn down denouncing the misguided film and voicing U.S. support for Islam. This semi-apology clearly had no effect, unless it was to embolden the crowd. After the flag was torn to shreds, there followed a bizarre Twitter debate between an embassy employee and an Egyptian activist in which the staffer seemed to be more concerned with denouncing the purported pretext for the mobs riot than condemning the violence itself. We consistently stand up for Muslims around the world and talk abt [sic] how Islam is a wonderful religion, the tweeter explained.
...If the Obama administration wanted to send a brief missive to the demonstrators, it should have opted for the one suggested by columnist Charles Krauthammer: Go to Hell.

If Obama IS a homosexual, then where else would he lead from?
He doesn't know what to do next with or without it.
Biden can tell stories about how Obama leads from behind.
The demon strators got exactly what they expected from Obama so the party continues. They see him as a fool.
I would stress the idea that all American explosives are made from glycerin rendered from from pig fat and if they get vaporized by glycerin rendered from from pig fat they go straight to Hell.
Its a weak god that can't protect his worshipers from disastrous effects of lard.
That's exactly how these Muslim adversaries view Obama, they respect strength, not weakness.
It's clear Obama has an agenda that's not in our country's interest and will not change, therefore we must affect his change this November.
Just think, we will still be a thousand years ahead of the Islamists.
They see him as an ally who is going to set the stage for the Islamization of the infidel world.
Obama even fits the description of a leader sympathetic to Islam who's rise to power and subsequent enabling of a Muslim victory over the infidels was foretold in Koranic End Times prophecy.
Iran's Achmadinejd sees Obama as the man who sets the stage for the chaos and violence that will ring in the return of the 12th Imam, the Mahdi
A certain segment of the Radical Muslim world sees Obama and his actions as President and the signals he has sent to the Muslim world as a sign from Allah that's it go time for the Islamic End Times.
Maybe uneducated Muslims see him that way but the leaders and educated ones see him as a fool that's willing to cave in order to avoid conflict with Islamic radicals.
Obama is not an intelligent man, he's gotten where he is because he's a conman and because of affirmative action, everything he does is for him.
I agree with your basic premise.
Obama quietly supported every Arab Spring revolt.
He knew that most of those countries would become Islamic police states as soon as their aged, mostly pro-American dictators had been deposed.
The future of Israel has never been more perilous.
Stolen for purposes of EMailing and RePosting...
This may be the best editorial of the year with respect to foreign policy.
Despite Threats, No Marines Guarded U.S. Consulate In Libya. I asked yesterday, where were the Marines? Now I know.
'Leading from behind leads to global chaos'What else would any reasonable person expect from a guy that Voted Present 129 times as a State Senator. The only thing he was decisive about was KILLING BABIES that survived an abortion. THAT!.. he voted on!
Obama is so #$@& incompetent he makes Jimmah Carter look like a combination of George Washington and George S Patton.
I could get behind the Islamic End Times. The world will be much more peaceful when Islam is ended.
