THIS is what happens when national security is based on campaign promises

America finds itself in what may be the worst global security situation since the prelude to World War II.

My friends, that is not hyperbole.

In my first piece for Townhall.com as a contributor, I feel compelled to say “we are at a point where our allies feel abandoned and our enemies feel emboldened. I believe that this degraded situation emanates from one single mistake over the past six years – basing foreign policy and national security on election campaign promises.”

“When President Obama proclaims that he was elected to “end wars,” he failed to realize that there are only two ways by which that occurs – victory or defeat. You cannot “end a war” by unilateral declaration that you are quitting – that only tends to empower an adversary.”

But of course Obama failed to acknowledge – to the detriment of our security and perhaps the very existence of Israel – that the enemy has a vote.

“The truth is that a campaign promise ushered in the reconstitution and resurgence of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) or Daesh.”

And now we must deal with the consequences. Yet Obama cannot even describe this enemy accurately, and is currently sitting down with Iran, the number one state sponsor of terrorism (still is, even though he’s taken them off the list), to placate the mullahs with some sort “deal.”

As I have mentioned many times, Neville Chamberlain was also motivated by politics and “war weariness.” He signed a document with Hitler proclaiming it would be bring peace for all time.

And we all know how that ended up.

Obama is a failure. The past 6+ years have been hard on Americans. This will not end well until we see Obama out of power.

So in 2008 when we were losing 800k jobs per month was better than it is now?? GET outta here with that crap LOON!!

You mean in that ONE month that that happened? I always love how you liberals cherry pick one single month and try to portray it as tough that was the norm. Today we have near record numbers on welfare and food stamps, near record numbers below the poverty line and we have a 35 year low civilian labor force participation rate….yeah, things are so great now aren’t they. Don’t be so easily fooled, our country’s financial health isn’t quite as good as this administration would have you believe. Not to mention that we added almost 8 trillion to our national… Read more »

You mean when the fallout due to CLINTON deregulation the banks finally hit the fan?

Lol…..that was funny

Only to those who continually play blame Bush politics to deflect from their own party’s involvement in the recession.

Uncle Ruckus

So…let me see…republican policies cause the worse economic disaster since the great depression and its clintons fault. So….republican can never do any harm right??

Robert

Clinton deregulated the banks and Dems in congress pushed for the housing loans to those that shouldn’t have ever gotten them in the first place. Bush warned congress MANY times and they ignored him. You should do some actual research on the recession and the events that led up to it instead of just parroting what you hear from leftist media.

I am so concerned for our country and world right now. When I read this morning that Iran says “the destruction of Israel is non-negotiable” and Obama is bending over backwards to give them that deal…all the while backstabbing Israel’s leader… we are at a point where we need some real intervention, either from those in power (and yes there ARE others in power besides Obama in this country) or God Almighty himself. Obama is either wickedly ignorant or just plain wicked. I think it is the latter.

I want to know what happens when you are voted out of office after only 2 years and spend your time complaining about everything the president does. When you are too afraid to run for office again…oh…thats ALLEN WEST!!!

U sound very racist.
Shame on you.

Talking Fox

get a clue, Allen West isn’t afraid of a damn thing. He was “voted out of office” because he said exactly what he meant, all the time, every time. That sound like someone who is afraid to you?

Uncle Ruckus
Guest

And the reason why he hasn’t ran for office since??? FEAR maybe???

Talking Fox
Guest

maybe he doesn’t want to? He isn’t obligated to run for anything, he spent his whole life serving this country, he can do whatever the hell he wants.

Uncle Ruckus

To sit back and complain about the direction of the nation but yet do nothing to try to change is….that is a COWARD!!! But…you LOONS believe that you can change America better from a THINK TANK than the WHITE HOUSE!!!

Marijw

It seems by what you write there is a huge fixation on Allen West and the fact he is quite comfortable being who he is and that names and attacking his character is all you have. Either you are jealous because he is provoking people to think for themselves or you are just blowing air. Which is it? And what are you doing? Perhaps you might consider that Allen West knows the meaning of what Martin Luther King meant when he said, “I have a dream that my four children will one day live in a nation where they will… Read more »

Again thanks for mentioning loons. No, I think not but then you may think this. Are you not fixated on Allen West? Words like loon, coward and many others used to describe him are words used by someone who is either angry or jealous and these to things are from the same root.

America needs a serious ass-whooping. Unfortunately it looks like a terrible fate must befall this once great nation before its people can repent of their folly and electing egotistical-charlatans like Obama. In the end the nation voted for what is happening to them.

Adetoz, you hit it on the head. We will be lucky to recover. What Uncle Ruckus doesn’t get is that the only way to change America is for individuals to refuse to accept the actions of our government. And it’s only a think tank because it’s full of conservatives. If it was full of liberals, it would be a whine barrel.

You mean the GOOD things that are happening to them>???

Please list the good things that are happening to them?

The good things you say are for the welfare rolls, food stamps, sub housing, free medcaid, and phones. Many of us tax paying citizens are tired of all this and have hard enough time paying our own way. Do you pay any income or state tax on the 15th?

Uncle Ruckus
Guest

No…I just sit in my government housing on my iObama phone all day and wait for government check and food stamps

When the next thousands around the world die due to terrorist nations empowerment at the hand of Obama. Know this. It is you who supported that those things should happen. You too will have blood on your hand.

Uncle Ruckus

ALLEN WEST hopes that he can be in the position that Obama has! Sadly, he knows that American will not vote for a NUT!!!
