Three fresh examples:
YEMEN, a country President Obama touted as a foreign policy "success" story in 2014, whose US-supported government has since been overthrown by rebels backed by...the country with whom we're currently negotiating a bad nuclear deal:
SYRIA - Where bumbling, failed diplomacy led to the humiliating cancellation of promised American military retaliation for the Assad's regime crossing of Obama's WMD "red line." Here's where things stand today:
You'll recall that under the Assad/Putin/Kerry deal, Syria was to fully disarm itself of banned WMDs in order to avoid military reprisals. Not only did they utterly fail to do so, they've now crossed yet another "red line" by repeatedly deploying the weapons they supposedly discarded. The consequences for this lawless butchery? A seat a the negotiating table. Sec. Kerry went from calling Assad a modern day Hitler to insisting that we must negotiate with him (Hillary infamously dubbed him a "reformer"). Consider that Mr. Kerry is at present leading a much higher-stakes negotiations with Iran.
IRAN/ISIS - Obama has effectively outsourced much of the anti-ISIS fight on the ground in Iraq to Iran (Tehran already pulls the strings in Syria). Power vacuums are inevitably filled by someone, and Obama's reckless failure to achieve a status of forces agreement in Iraq guaranteed that such a perilous situation would arise in that country. The void is being filled by the monsters of ISIS and the monsters of Iran. Here's Gen. Petraeus, today:
In spite of his fall from grace, Petraeus was the military genius responsible for turning around the Iraq war, and later served as the director of the CIA. He's deeply informed. These comments matter. Iran is on the march, yet our president is walking on eggshells with the regime, desperate to forge a weak nuclear deal, and eager for them to help take care of his short-term ISIS problem. A strategic disaster. As Benjamin Netanyahu told Congress, in the case of ISIS vs. Iran, "the enemy of your enemy is...your enemy."
