‘SORRY SON, BUT YOUR DAD DIED FOR NOTHING’
Four-time Walkley Award winning political commentator and Churchill Fellow, has returned to the fray over concern that the integrity of news dissemination is continually being threatened by a partisan media.
The most precious thing a bereaved little boy can cling to is that his brave soldier dad died making the world a better place for others. Barack Obama has deprived him even of that. Forty Australian families and 4,000 American families will now need to look forever at a photo on a wall and think, “what an awful waste”.
Warlord tyrants Saddam Hussein and Gaddafi were unique. They had a rare ability to govern disparate tribal savagery with a clever mix of bullshit and cruel iron fists. Kill one and you had better fill the void quickly before a whole nation implodes as has Iraq and Libya.
Installing weak puppet rulers bent on vengeance in their place shows how far removed America is from the reality of an Arab world of atavistic Barbarism that is spilling West.
A loose coalition, including Australia, can never fill the role of training Iraqis to defend themselves. They are the sons of the cowards of the “million-strong” Republican Guard of Saddam Hussein who dropped their weapons and fled when confronted invading Kuwait.
You can’t train a coward to be brave and Arabs have never been known for their bravery, just ask the diminutive State of Israel.
But Obama’s legacy will not be an honourable one, in fact he, like the Iraqis, will also be remembered for cowardice in the face of the enemy. He will be remembered for setting the entire middle-east on fire from a distance and igniting a nuclear arms race in the worst place possible as Saudi Arabia now looks to purchase a nuclear weapon of the same grade Obama has allowed the Iranians.
He has alienated the West’s only fair dinkum ally, Israel and backed the Muslim Brotherhood’s leader, Morsi who Egypt’s new illegitimate regime has just sentenced to death. Egypt has now turned its back on the West in disgust.
Even Obama’s favourite oil rich savages, the Saudis, no longer trust him, refusing his invitation to a summit. Jordan is going it alone as the only State now separating Iran and Israel.
ISIS is rampaging unchallenged through Ramadi on its way to Baghdad, a city of seven million, while Iran usurps the US military’s role in Iraq. Libya and northern Africa are in meltdown with thousands of refugees afloat somewhere between the Barbary Coast and Europe.
A hundred thousand more are flooding to South East Asia with Indonesia ironically turning back boats to nowhere. Europe, including Turkey, has given up on a million more refugees.
The Syrian rebel “moderates” Obama trained to defeat Assad have now become ISIS, sporting US materiel, while an alienated Russia supplies arms to Assad and Turkey buys stolen Iraqi oil in exchange for ISIS destroying the Kurds and Christian ethnics on its borders.
The insidious Taliban has aligned with ISIS as the US withdraws from Afghanistan creating an extremist Islamic leviathan with the despised West in their cross hairs... well done Obama.
The worst Administration in US history has created an Asian and African nuclear powder keg but Obama has not only left his fingerprints on the Middle-east, he has created a tsunami of refugees flooding through his own southern borders. He has supplied Mexican drug cartels with arms, hoping they will kill each other off.
Could that possibly be his inane tactic in the Middle-East too?
If it is, then it’s not working there either because only innocent civilian families are dying horrible deaths in their thousands and those who have the money to escape are enriching people smugglers to add to the worst world-wide refugee crisis in history.
And these are not our country shoppers, they are genuine refugees.
How will this tearful little boy be able to explain to his children what their grandfather died for?
