Skip to comments.Obama Seeks an Escape From the Middle East

In his first term, Barack Obama all but declared victory in America's Middle East struggles.
As he precipitously pulled out all U.S. peacekeepers from Iraq, the president had his own "Mission Accomplished" moment when declaring the country "stable," "self-reliant" and an "extraordinary achievement."
Those claims echoed Vice President Joe Biden's earlier boast that Iraq somehow would prove Obama's "greatest achievement."
After the death of Osama bin Laden, and during Obama's re-election campaign, the president also proclaimed that al-Qaeda was a spent force and "on the run."
But what exactly was the new Obama strategy that supposedly had all but achieved a victory in the larger war on terror amid Middle East hostility?

I like VDH’s work. But the prime factor in Hussein that he is in fact a muslim. Whether it is a desire to be “fair” or just the conservative bent to civility, the pretense must stop.
No one says it except online here and elsewhere, Hussein is muslim, therefor he will always act in whatever he perceives to be the muslim greater good.
He is not ignorant that the muslim model of the greatest good is destruction of the US, Israel, and the West in general.
Once you grasp that, Hussein’s policies at least make sense.
VDH is a savvy guy...so I pose a few Q’s:
Does VDH (he) believe he is a muzzie?
Does he believe 0bummer’s definition of victory may include leave our troops there to be killed? (remember Seal Team 6 were left to die)
With these questions, exit strategy may not be compatible unless exit strategy includes allowing caliphate to exist as a “victory”.
(snip) Once more in the Middle East, Barack Obama is looking to blame others for a mess that has grown since 2009. But mostly he just wants out of the lose-lose region at any cost and wishes that someone would just make all the bad things go away.
This was the last paragraph of the article. So perfect. SO Perfect. Totally explains the mentality of this spoiled rotten in socialist upbringing petulant man-child.
Totalitarians foreign and totalitarians domestic keep rolling/plundering over the citizens of a "free" republic.
There is no strategy, never has been. The course is to dither and stumble from one event to the next all the while makin speeches and telling lies.
or is it that Obama wishes he could find a way to take advantage of it for himself and doesn't care how bad it is?
Brave Hussein he ran away.
Bravely ran away away.
When danger reared it’s ugly head,
He bravely turned his tail and fled.
Yes, brave hussein he turned about
And gallantly he chickened out.
****Bravely**** taking (”I never did!”) to his feet,
He beat a very brave retreat.
Bravest of the braaaave, Hussein

Petulant children do exactly as the last part of that sentence says. Cover their ears, shut their eyes and continually scream for someone to take it away. His appearances on Monday and Tuesday are prime examples but since he is now the most powerful man in the world, his man-boy hands are not big enough to cover his ears and his lackeys make sure there is nothing he has to see that may be unpleasant while he rant about everything that is wrong with everyone else.
Unfortunately Susan was at Staples getting a case of white-out.....she's rewriting her resume for the umpteenth time.
Marie and Jen were unavailable---they were on a health-food break....eating Proten-enriched Power bars and drinking bowel-cleansing Green Smoothies
Loosing Iraq will hang around his neck for ever. This is all democrat
Mark Levin did some side-by-side speeches of Reagan and Obama yesterday. Petulant is a very precise word for Obama, and he also came off as a mental case. Have you noticed all those pictures of Obama? What employer would hire such a person to mix and mingle with other employees?
Barack Obama is looking to blame others
That is always his very first instinct: immediately find someone or something to blame. Never take responsibility for anything that goes wrong and deflect criticism elsewhere. Then make a short speech and walk away from the problem.
The country has only just begun to pay for this mistake.
Marie is so smart that she got her job without having sex with a single Department of State man. She’s so smart that her degree in international women’s studies has a gilt edge. She’s so smart her glasses have ego’s. She’s so smart that her office door is lettered Smart Woman Within.
"One night over beer and wings , I advised Obama to pull out all US peacekeepers from Iraq, and declare 'Mission Accomplished'
as his reelection campaign theme."
"Heck, Osama bin Laden was dead, al-Qaeda was on the
run, the country was stable, and self-reliant... an extraordinary
achievement for the Obama administration."
"Even Vice President Biden said so."
You forgot ‘and destroying the country’.
Yeah, but it all depends on what the meaning of "is" is........did she crawl under a few deks to (ahem) burnish her credentials?
