" Here’s what you’re going to see in the next few weeks: the Russians will begin to fly combat missions in that region, not just targeting ISIS, but in order to prop up Assad. He will also, then, turn to other countries in the region and say, ‘America is no longer a reliable ally, Egypt. America is no longer a reliable ally, Saudi Arabia. Begin to rely on us, What he is doing is he is trying to replace us as the single most important power broker in the Middle East and this president is allowing it." Now chilling words as Russia did in fact do just what Republican candidate Marco Rubio predicted at the second GOP, CNN debate. Marco Rubio showed Americans that while he may well be the the youngest presidential candidate, he has shown that he is also, the smartest candidate in regards to foreign affairs.
Wednesday, September, 30, Russia began carrying out air strikes on Syria. While Russia claimed the air campaign was against ISIS, it was not. The air strikes were no where's near ISIS, but instead against moderate Syrian factions against Syrian dictator Bashar al -Asaad. Only one day after Russian President Vladimir Putin and President Obama had a somewhat stiff meeting, Russian representatives working with the Iraqi government, had their high ranking officer pay a visit to the United States embassy in Baghdad.The visit was to advise U.S. officials to discontinue all air attacks on ISIS as Russia would be leading their own air attacks on ISIS. As the United States has become somewhat of a pussy, we said, "okay" and discontinued our own air strikes to clear the way for Russia to launch their own campaign against ISIS. Russia lied. Shocker! How dare they! Russia did exactly what Rubio said they were going to do ,only Russia didn't hit ISIS in the least. ISIS evidently is still very much a presence in Syria, while the rebels, many trained by a secret program backed by the CIA, have been hit instead. Russia lied, innocent lives killed, and Obama says NOTHING. Not one statement, not one word, nothing. Cat got Obama's tongue? I should say so, as Putin made a complete ass out of President Obama, and America as a whole. Putin showed the world yesterday that Russia is again a super power, while America is nothing.Case in point, the Prime Minister for Iraq expressed his disappointment in the U.S. led coalition, welcoming Russian air strikes in Syria, leaving me to think Rubio's second half prediction in the second debate is to come in only a matter of time.
As of Wednesday the White House was clueless as to who the Russians were attacking in Syria, actually saying, "we don't know who the Russians are targeting." What? While Great Britain's intelligence knew of rebels in Syria being attacked, the White House knew nothing. Essentially Obama,and his staff had their heads up their asses in showing their stupidity, and unawareness of just what was taking place in Syria. While Obama had nothing to say regarding the Syrian air strikes, Arizona Senator John McCain took to the Senate floor, giving a speech on Russian air strikes, in utter disgust . Disgust in the lack of leadership of the U.S., and disgust in how Obama just allowed Russia to take over and run the show. McCain's speech was powerful, moving and frightening as well.( For McCain Speech click below)
America's lack of real leadership in the mid east has been detrimental to America's standing with the world. While Obama has his tail between his legs drawing meaningless red lines, and fleeing from conflict in the mid east, Russia has been scheming to demonstrate real leadership in the mid east. America's allies are already showing their loss of confidence in the U.S.presently purchasing weapons from Russia, as they have lost faith in the United States. Russia's recent air strikes in Syria, and presence in the mid east should be disturbing to all Americans. Russia tells the U.S. to get out of the way, and the U.S. bows down and obeys. essentially Putin says "jump" and Obama says, "how high?" It is pathetic what Obama has done to this country. Not only is it pathetic, but it's downright terrifying. Obama and his lack of leadership, his reducing the military, and signing a deal with Iran giving everything but the kitchen sink has put Americans at risk. In attacking Syrian rebels backed by the U.S., Russia has indirectly attacked America and Obama doesn't seem bothered in the least. With Russian air strikes in Syria, Russia has spoken, the world has watched, and I am left to ask "is this the beginning of the end?"
