Obama and his Red Line: Leading from behind.is not leading

Original post made by James, Midtown, on Apr 26, 2013

Chemical weapons used in Syria. Obama, despite his red line threats, continues to hide behind his own "lead from behind" model. In the meantime, Iraq and Afghanistan are falling into the toilet. Syria is a hellstorm. Jordan is on the brink of collapse. Egypt is the new wet dream for the Islamists. The Middle East is burning, while Obama fiddles.

Where is the leadership?

Obama is not a leader. He is a lawyer, and as such, a smooth talker. Nothing more.

Aw, c'mon. This can't be happening. Cheney, W, Condi, Wolfowitz, and their minions promised us that invading Iraq would immediately yield the new dawn for the USA in the Mideast. Or is this actually what they had in mind?

But you can make your mark. If you haven't already exercised your Second Amendment right to own an assault rifle, buy one now, hop on over there, and fight for whichever side you favor.

Oh, James (and alter-egos Kevin, Gary, Sean, etc..)

Get of the conspiracy theory website dejour (infowars) and drudge. They are making you so fearful of life, filling you with misinformation. Why not take a nice long vacation down to the Bush Library and pick up an (upside down) copy of...

My Pet Goat

Web Link

After that, you can review the document he read a month prior, the August 6 PDB titled

BIN LADIN DETERMINED TO ATTACK IN US

Then try to figure out what, if anything, Bush read while he took a month's vacation after the PDB warning.

Just to read My Pet Goat.
