Obama Snatched Ramadi Defeat From Bush Victory
American Thinker ^ | May 20, 2015 | Daniel John Sobieski

The White House description of the fall of Ramadi to ISIS forces we have supposedly been busy degrading and destroying as a “setback” is like the British calling Dunkirk in World War II a strategic withdrawal. Ramadi is a defeat, the result of the precipitous withdrawal of U.S. forces from Iraq by President Obama against the advice of military minds who know better about these things than the former community organizer from Illinois.

It is a defeat for President Obama’s foreign policy, a rebuke of his fundamental transformation of America’s role in the world from a leader who shaped events to one of treating foreign affairs as a spectator sport, with the U.S. “leading from behind” and being left behind in the process.

Nonsense.

It’s a defeat for America and civilization, yes.

But it’s a very calculated and deliberate victory for Obama and his Muslim friends.

Very well written article and absolutely true. Its almost been 7 years since Bush was in office. Any leftist trying to blame him is incompetent.

He is only snatching defeat from victory if you are foolish to assume that he is on our side.

Any leftist NOT trying to blame him will be dropped from the JournoList membership.

American wars must be fought quickly, violently and ended abruptly, with no thought of “nation-building”. Otherwise, the ‘rats will eventually undermine the effort and give away the victory.

Obama is Sunni and so is ISIS. He wants them to win.

The hardest part is for the Wets - who bled and died and have life-long injuries -
