Ukraine, Syria, Iran -- America isn't leading from behind, it's being left behind
FoxNews ^ | Feb 28, 2014 | K T McFarland

Russia, flush with new-found wealth from oil exports, expands its military reach and political influence abroad. A war-weary America slashes defense spending and retreats from the world. The president embarks on a massive government-subsidized program to develop alternative energy to replace fossil fuels.

Pundits cluck about America in retreat, and point to the rise of an Asian economic superpower. That’s the world circa 1976, but it sounds like quotes ripped from today’s headlines.

History has a way of repeating itself, or to quote the great Yogi Bera, it’s déjà vu all over again. The Obama administration is looking a lot like the Carter administration. Only worse.

If I was the premier in China, I would be mobilizing for an invasion of the Senkaku Islands. The US has its weakest president ever.

Yup! And watch Iran orchestrate an attack on Israel. They know Obama is not going to do a damn thing about it. All this will take place before 2016.

The question is will Israel wait on Iran to attack first? I doubt it.

Just saw her on FOX and when asked what would Reagan do, she said he would beat the Russians economically by exporting natural gas to Europe and by approving fracking, etc. here in U.S. to decrease the price of oil.

Also notice that what little coverage the Partisan Media Shills have given to the Boko Haram terrorists in Africa has shrunk even further, while the journolistnik collaboration regarding the Lord’s Resistance Army was everywhere at once, and the Venezuela uprising went right down the memory hole.

Soon, Russia will be taking real estate in the direction of the U.K. again.

I wonder what their own kind getting blown up by U.S. missiles makes them think about the U.S. calling them evil? There’s probably a reason why they don’t envy the U.S. in some ways...

Putin and Obama on the Beach—Putin kicks sand in Obama’s face —Obama cries out that he has drawn a line in the Sand. And Putin better not cross it .Judge Pirro watching is notes that Obama’s red lines become pink line and we all look like we’ve turned yellow. Meanwhile back at the Ketchup factory Quick John offers to take Obama on a swift boat ride to North Vietnam to show his President where he spent Christmas and got awarded all those purple hearts for committing War Crimes —not the ones he threw over that chain link fence for the press release VVAG-but the ones he shows anybody who questions his bravery,Patriotism. NBC shows photo shopped pictures of Obama looking Presidential—probably taken when he stepped out of the room where he plays GO fish while his Ambassadors and former NAVY SEALS are being killed by his Muslim Brothers—and Face the Nation shows the Ketchup king and Hagel the Bagel trying to sound qualified for the BS their President demands.But like Hillary herself shouted “WHAT DOES IT MATTER NOW?”
