Your Handy List of Obama’s 12 Worst Foreign Policy Disasters

President Obama cannot point to a single foreign policy success for his Administration. Everywhere you look, his foreign policy is a disaster.

Here’s your handy list of Obama’s 12 Worst Foreign Policy Disasters:

1) Iraq is imploding.

Obama released Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the terrorist who was in U.S. custody and who is now leading the ISIS takeover of Iraq. ISIS is an al Qaeda offshoot which is so radical that it was disavowed by al Qaeda as too extreme even for them. Upon his release from a U.S detention camp in 2009, al-Baghdadi promised America: “I’ll see you in New York.”

Iraq had a relatively stable pro-America government on Obama’s first day as President. All he needed to do was get a “status of forces” agreement with Baghdad — easy to do, if Obama had wanted it. But he was determined to leave zero U.S. presence in Iraq.

So the terrorists are filling the power vacuum.

We are now in the incredible position of hoping Iran (“Axis of Evil”) steps in to stop the advance of ISIS.

2) Afghanistan soon to be under the control of the Taliban and al Qaeda again

Now that we’ve swapped five Taliban terrorist leaders for one U.S. Army deserter, Obama has made it clear that America will do nothing to stop the Taliban from retaking control of Afghanistan. These terrorist leaders he released back into the field are top commanders, mass-murders, called by experts “the worst of the worst.”

At least four of the five will return to the battlefield.

Obama has now taught terrorists that one American deserter equals five top Taliban commanders.

Taliban leaders have announced that they plan to kidnap as many Americans as they can.

Every American is now a target for kidnapping by terrorists.

As in Iraq, Obama is determined to leave no U.S. presence in Afghanistan.

Afghanistan will be under Taliban-al Qaeda control again within a year.

3) Obama Lost Egypt

Obama actively undermined U.S. ally Hosni Mubarak in favor of the anti-American Muslim Brotherhood. The Egyptian military has since expelled the radical Muslim Brotherhood from power in a coup and reestablished some semblance of order over the country. But America has lost a key ally in the Middle East.

4) Libya is in flames

Libya is now a terrorist enclave thanks to Obama – who backed the al Qaeda-led insurgency against Gaddafi. As bad as

Muammar Gaddafi was, he at least wasn’t al Qaeda and seemed satisfied with just being dictator of Libya. Gaddafi hasn’t been a threat to the United States since President Reagan sent a couple of cruise missiles into his living room.

One of the side benefits of the second Iraq war and the capture of Saddam Hussein was that this convinced Gaddafi to abandon his nuclear bomb program. Gaddafi had become a toothless tiger in his old age.

5) Benghazi

The successful al Qaeda attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya resulting in the killing of a U.S. Ambassador and three other Americans shows who is really in charge of Libya today — thanks to Obama. It also sent a message to the rest of the world that this Administration is utterly inept when it comes to protecting Americans and U.S. interests.

For terrorists, it’s now “open season” on Americans.

6) Assad calls Obama’s bluff

I find myself in rare agreement with the leftist former Congressman Dennis Kucinich who says the Obama Administration has become al Qaeda’s air force in the Middle East. Yes, the Assad regime is bad, but the replacement is likely to be far worse – al Qaeda and other radical offshoots.

For some reason, Obama thought the Assad regime’s alleged killing of 1,400 insurgents with chemical weapons during a civil war was beyond the pale. But this is small potatoes as far as brutal regimes go. The Rawanda regime slaughtered 800,000 innocent Rawandans, but we did nothing. Pol Pot slaughtered one-forth of Cambodia. We did nothing.

So why the selective outrage?

Assad claims his regime did not use the chemical weapons. He claims these chemical weapons were used by the Muslim Brotherhood or perhaps in a “False Flag” attack — as a tactic by the rebels to bring the Western world’s wrath down on Assad. Assad has supplied some decent evidence that this might be the case.

At any rate, Obama backed off his “red line” threats to Assad to get rid of his chemical weapons, thus sending a message to the world that Obama doesn’t mean what he says. Putin has since taken advantage of Obama’s fecklessness to seize the Crimea and roll tanks into the Ukraine.

Obama’s on-again, off-again threats to Assad combined with his complete withdraw of U.S. forces from Iraq and Afghanistan signaled to the world that Obama is no force to be reckoned with.

7) Putin considers Obama a joke

Vladimir Putin has clearly made the calculation that Barack Obama is a joke. Putin knows he can do whatever he wants. He’s now reassembling the Soviet Union.

Obama, meanwhile, has turned America into the world’s laughingstock.

8) Iran soon to have nukes

Obama has made it clear he will do absolutely noting to stop Iran’s program to develop nuclear weapons.

9) North Korea soon to have nukes

Obama has made it clear he will do absolutely noting to stop North Korea from getting nuclear weapons.

10) Alienated Israel

Obama is the most anti-Israel President in American history. Actually, he’s the only anti-Israel President in American history.  Obama has made no secret of his disdain for Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

11) Alienated Great Britain

Obama outraged America’s closest ally by agreeing to provide Britain’s nuclear submarine secrets to Vladimir Putin. He did this, apparently, as a gesture to Putin that we are on Moscow’s side and as part of his program to “reset” relations with Putin.

12) Alienated Poland and Eastern Europe

Obama reneged on America’s commitment to provide anti-missile protection to Poland. He did this also as part of his failed program to “reset” America’s relations with Putin.

————————–

Never before has America been more loathed and disrespected around the world. Obama is universally regarded by foreign leaders as arrogant, weak, dishonest, detached, selfish, back-stabbing, petulant, lazy, foppish — just about every characteristic you don’t want in a leader.

Now that the price of oil is soaring to over $110 a barrel, Americans might be starting to see that foreign policy matters. Get ready to pay $6 for a gallon of regular gas – which is what Obama says he wants.

Meanwhile, Obama is playing another round of golf today — his equivalent of Nero’s fiddling.

QUESTION: Is Obama really this incompetent? Or is he failing on purpose as part of his program to destroy America and Western Civilization?

Imagine a referee who ALWAYS gets the call wrong — never right. At a certain point, you’d have to conclude this isn’t by chance, or that perhaps there’s some kind of mental illness at work.

A side-benefit of all these foreign policy disasters for Obama is they distract America from the disaster of ObamaCare and the disaster of Obamanomics. The U.S. economy in Q1 actually shrank by 1%.

So which is worse: Obama’s foreign policy, or his domestic policies?

It’s a tough call. I would say his foreign policy disasters are worse . . . because most of the damage he’s doing in foreign policy can’t be fixed.
