Excellent comment. Right, he was invited by a slaughtering president.

Removing Sadaam Hussein Empowered Iran. Leaving him in power would have kept Iran in Check and ISIS would not have happened, neither would Al Quaida in Iraq. Iran would not be wreaking havoc Politically all over the middle East. Iran is supporting Terrorism in Lebanon, Saudi Arabia and Libya.

You don’t. Russia is in a downward spiral and we must move on without them. We can pity them, but we do not need to touch them.

To my fellow Americans, you need to fees up to reality,
THE US IS A BANKRUPT NATION, that is the reason why we are not getting involved in the Middle East.

After spending $4 trillion in Iraq, only to belong to Iran in the end, and another $1 trillion in Afghanistan, only to be handed back to the taliban terrorists, I think Obama is making the right choice.

Besides, Russians and better fighters than Americans.

Russian GDP per capita is now lower than Czech Republic or Greece. It is quickly becoming a third world country under Putin, and this boondoggle will surely assist in accelerating.

States that fail to implement good governance are a threat to their citizens and the international community.

Syria has not been governed well. The US and others should not mute their desire for better leadership. Russia is trying to protect its regional strategic interests by force. We should all hope that the high cost of intervention persuades Russia to pressure Syrian leadership into future compromise.

That’s probably a fair assessment of the man but its dangerous when the leader of the free world is seen as a toothless tiger. The US is already viewed in the middle east as easy to play (as Putin has now at least twice) , indecisive and unable or unwilling to stay the distance.

It’s bizarre to think that a US president could do worse than George Bush in international leadership but though Bush was seen as reckless and dangerous he was at least respect inasmuch as feared by bad actors. Obama’s unwillingness to take and maintain decisive action has put the bad actors in the drivers sear.
Iran is out of jail and already throwing its weight around. Putin is contained in one adventure and starts another. Sure these guys will kaboosh any chance of their populations becoming rich and safe – but you really think they care.

They are bullies and they looks strong and walk tall and the US stands in the corner shaking its head.

Who’s the boss.
