The bottom line. Elections have consequences and so does American foreign policy or the lack there of. Obama's version of foreign policy in the middle east for the past four years, has been to snub and abandon Israel, while bowing and scraping to every Muslim radical and despot in the middle east.
I said weeks ago, that if Obama were re-elected, there would be sever consequences in the middle east. I said there would be war. I said that Netanyahu and Israel would conclusively understand that Israel was alone and abandoned if Obama were re-elected and as a result the Israelis would take measures to defend themselves from the known and obvious threats of a nuclear Iran. I said all these things not as some overly wise soothsayer of global political intercourse, but rather as a single individual, who is aware of history and observes the world stage outside of what complicit media represents to the dumb masses.
There are many many more educated and more experienced and more well versed individuals who have been saying the same things, but no one was listening to them either. They were not given the same stages or the same print or the same air time as mainstream media gives Obama and the left. The manna from Heaven Nirvana hustlers if the left have attained their victory of Obama's re-election. The consequences of the dead eyes and the dead ears of American media will translate into dead bodies by the thousands and tens of thousands and possibly millions in middle east and elsewhere in the very near future. Israel is already under attack and they are defending themselves. Meanwhile, the newly formed Muslim Brotherhood government in Egypt has said that they will support their 'Palestinian brothers.' As will the rest of the predominantly radical Islamist middle east.
When that happens and once it begins, don't be surprised to see more op/ed pieces and more mainstream media news reports claiming that sh*t just happens.
The scandal engulfing two of our top military and intelligence officers could not be coming at a worse time: the Middle East has never been more unstable and closer to multiple, interconnected explosions.
Virtually every American president since Dwight Eisenhower has had a Middle Eastern country that brought him grief. For Ike, it was Lebanon’s civil war and Israel’s Sinai invasion. For Lyndon Johnson, it was the 1967 Six-Day War. For Nixon, it was the 1973 war. For Carter, it was the Iranian Revolution. For Ronald Reagan, it was Lebanon. For George H.W. Bush, it was Iraq. For Bill Clinton, it was Al Qaeda and Afghanistan. For George W. Bush, it was Iraq and Afghanistan. For
Barack Obama’s first term, it was Iran and Afghanistan, again. And for Obama’s second term, I fear that it could be the full nightmare — all of them at once. The whole Middle East erupts in one giant sound and light show of civil wars, states collapsing and refugee dislocations, as the keystone of the entire region — Syria — gets pulled asunder and the disorder spills across the neighborhood.
And you were worried about the “fiscal cliff.”
