Of all the mistakes Obama has made, Allen West says one of his dumbest involved Syria.
Watch what Allen West says in answer to a question about Barack Obama and foreign policy.
Why did Barack Obama think it was the business of the United States to determine who rules over Syria? West is absolutely right that this was one of Obama’s dumbest statements. In fact, while there have been many times Obama failed to show resolve, this was not one of those times. The problem was not that Obama didn’t back up his words with actions. The problem was that the words were stupid and arrogant.
How can anyone compare Assad’s alleged crimes to ISIS’ crucifixions, beheadings, and rapes? Yet ISIS was directly created by U.S. policy against Assad.
Now it has come to the point where John Kerry openly accuses Syria and Russia of attacking al Qaeda in Syria (al Nusra). That’s right: accuses!
Here’s the quotation from John Kerry at The Duran blog:
Now, I have said to Russia many times it’s very hard to separate people when they are being bombed indiscriminately and when Assad has the right to determine who he’s going to bomb, because he can, quote, ‘go after Nusrah’ but go after the opposition at the same time because he wants to.
So these “moderate” rebels are fighting side by side with terrorists… and that means Russia and Syria are guilty? If they were really moderate, then they would be fighting against al Nusra.
What kind of “moderates” get U.S. support while cooperating with terrorists?
That is the kind of insane foreign policy that we engage in on the basis of Barack Obama’s statement that Assad must go. What Allen West says makes a great deal of sense.
The video below is quite eye-opening. It argues there are no moderate rebels.
