After Obama’s “Amateur Hour” speech yesterday, Syrians are celebrating a “historic American retreat” and declaring a victory as a result of Obama’s “hesitation and confusion”. Iranians are drinking champagne, and Canadians are calling Obama a” JERK”. Israelis are stunned by his cowardice.
Syria hailed an “historic American retreat” on Sunday, mockingly accusing President Barack Obama of hesitation and confusion after he delayed a military strike to consult Congress.
Reporting from Jerusalem, Fox News correspondent Leland Vittert says,
“Israelis are stunned. … There is a feeling here that President Assad, the Syrians and for that matter, the Iranians, were eye-to-eye with President Obama and the president is the one who blinked.
Israeli Minister Uri Ariel wrote, “In Tehran they are opening bottles of champagne, and surely shifting into high gear toward nuclear weaponization.”.
And in the Canada Free Press, the repeatedly labeled “JERK” and “witless fool” was, also, lambasted as “The Incredible Shrinking President”.
A half hour late to his Rose Garden announcement on Saturday, President Obama put the best possible spin he could on his badly timed threat to lob a half-billion dollars’ worth of Tomahawk missiles into Syria as retaliation for the gas attack; one whose perpetrator is not as yet known with any certainty.
This is a President who could not put together a coalition of nations to support his proposed action. His predecessor (“It’s all Bush’s fault”) had some forty nations on board for his attack on Iraq. Obama could not get a United Nations’ resolution. His predecessor had some sixteen UN resolutions. He has been told that Congress would have to authorize covering the cost of the action and of replacing the missiles because his administration has cut the Defense Department budget to the bone.
There’s a word to describe someone who would get himself into such a fix: JERK.
Obama will fly off to a G-20 conference where the other world leaders will no doubt treat him like the witless fool he has proved himself to be time after time. What other president would announce a surge into Afghanistan in 2011 at the same time he announces when the troops would be leaving? What other president has managed to increase Russia’s influence in the Middle East while diminishing our own?
The rest of the article is a must-read.
While our own sycophant media is proclaiming his greatness, the rest of the world sees him for what he is.
