Exposing Obama's foreign policy disasters
By: Diane Sori
Next Monday will be the last debate before the election, and it will be on foreign policy and foreign policy alone. Foreign policy is Obama’s Achilles heel like no other at this point in time. These past four years of Apology Tours, subterfuge, and cover-ups will take their toll on Obama in the end.
To win this final debate all Mitt Romney has to do is remind everyone of Barack HUSSEIN Obama’s failed foreign and military policies leading up to and ending with the Benghazi cover-up.
Romney can start with Obama’s announcing (against the on the ground general's advice) the pullout date of our troops from the Iraq and Afghan theaters. Because he broke cardinal rule #1 of NEVER telling your enemy when you plan to leave a war zone, Obama must now answer for the resurgence of al-Qaeda in Iraq and the Taliban in Afghanistan, and the added American troop deaths that call has caused. And while he loves to bloviate while campaigning that he 'ended the war, Osama is dead and al-Qaeda and the Taliban are on the run'...guess what...they’re NOT in fact they’re stronger than ever and all because they just had to sit around and wait until we left.
Next Romney can add in the fact that America’s stance in the Middle-East has become a laughing stock around the world as the Obama sanctioned and instigated ‘Arab Spring’ has become a total Arab nightmare with country after country falling to the Muslim Brotherhood and NOT to his falsely claimed move towards democracy.
Remember Obama bloviating last month before the U(seless) N(ations) saying that the ‘sweeping democratic changes’ taking place in the Arab world are supported by the United States and urged governments in the Middle East to begin the ‘painstaking work of reform.’ Saying America was ”inspired by the Tunisian protests that toppled a dictator, because we recognized our own beliefs in the aspiration of men and women who took to the street,” he oh so conveniently left out the fact that he had supported the Tunisian regime of Ben Ali, and that a growing Islamist jihadist presence in Syria presents the danger of an extremist dictatorship becoming a base for international terrorism.
The truth is that this administration has continued to support brutal dictatorships in the region and has actually worked to suppress protest movements pushing for true democratic reforms. Case in point is his total lack of support for the Iranian student protest movement against the Islamic regime a while back.
Then Romney can speak about Obama’s total failure in getting Iran to stop its nuclear program. And with Iran recently having tested its long-range ballistic missiles, time is NOT something we should be wasting. But time is exactly what Obama’s wasting as he takes credit for slapping sanction after (useless) sanction on a country that is laughing at the absurdity of it all as they continue to stockpile enriched uranium at an accelerating rate.
Romney can even mention the fact that while Obama is taking credit for imposing those stronger (but useless) sanctions on Iran, it’s really Congress that has passed sanctions legislation by huge bipartisan majorities, sometimes over Obama’s objections, after all we all know where his true loyalties lie.
Also, Romney can point out that after tip-toeing around the issue of a military option against Iran, after all these are his muslim brethren (and NO sarcasm intended), Obama’s quest to be re-elected is forcing him to become somewhat more hawkish on Iran in the weeks leading up to the election.
But it’s all an act on Obama’s part...
And why...so he can appear to be Israel’s friend and ally to pander to and hopefully garner the Jewish vote is all. Barack HUSSEIN Obama could care less if Iran has a bomb and could care even less if they used it against Israel...all he cares about is how he can use and twist the Iran situation to his advantage for votes.
In regards to Israel, thankfully Obama failed in his attempt to strong-arm her into a permanent settlement freeze in the West Bank and Jerusalem. So he instead continues to push hard for a two-state solution which favors the so-called Palestinians instead of our ally and friend by demanding that Israel return to its pre-’67 borders (which will NEVER be agreed to by Israel as those borders are indefensible). And let’s NOT forget his malicious and deliberate snub of Benjamin Netanyahu last month so he could go the talk show self-glorifying route instead.
And after speaking the truth about Israel, Romney can remind everyone of Obama’s failed effort, again on the advice of the generals on the ground, to maintain a residual U.S. military force in Iraq...Obama’s failure to cut a deal with the Taliban for the release of America’s only known prisoner of war, Bowe Bergdahl...Obama’s failure to get North Korea to stop its nuclear program...and Obama’s failure to win over China and Russia for even a symbolic U.N. condemnation of Syria’s Bashar Assad.
Then Romney can hit hard with Barack HUSSEIN Obama’s total lack of commitment to deploy the missile defense arsenal needed to protect American interests both at home and abroad. In this day and age of islamic jihadists this is paramount to keeping us safe at home and Obama refuses to do this.
And all this can culminate in Romney’s exposing the truths about Obama’s cover-up of Benghazi.
Mitt Romney has the ammunition to rule this last debate...hopefully he’ll use it. Then ‘We the People’ can say, “Stick a fork in Obama ‘cause he’s done.”
