It was just six months ago that our fearless commander-in-chief assured our nation that the countries of Yemen and Somalia were strong allies in the war on terror. Obama promised that with the help of these nations we would degrade and dismantle the terrorist extremists.
As it turns out Obama would once again be wrong. The governments of these two key allies in the war on terror are now being over run by these same folks we were supposed to degrade and dismantle. Because of this these terrorists are making our brave and courageous dear leader look like an absolute fool. The government in Yemen was recently overthrown by the Houthis rebels who share the same radical ideology of al Qaeda and just so happens to be backed by Iran. Is it not troubling to anybody with a brain that at a time when our president is negotiating a non-binding nuclear arms agreement with a dangerous Islamic regime such as Iran, that same regime is currently working to destroy our key allies in the area. This past Saturday when negotiations where still taking place the Supreme Leader of Iran openly spoke to a crowd of Islamic fanatics. They all called for, “death to America!”
The government of Somalia was supposed to be another ally in the war on terror. They are currently being attacked by the Al Shabaab terrorist group. The group’s ultimate goal is to over throw the Somalian government and install an Islamic government with the intention to implement Sharia law. In 2012, Al Qaeda’s leader Ayman Al-Zawahiri and Al-Shabaab merged to create working relationship to defeat the west. A video was released a few weeks ago that stated their desire to attack the west by blowing up American malls.
It is a bit mystifying that a president of the United States is rewarding a known state sponsor of terrorism such as Iran with nuclear capability. This will embolden and give Iran greater dominance in a fragile and feudal region. Rewarding the enemy for bad behavior only increases the bad behavior. As the United States sits idly by and purposely watches the fall of ally after ally in the Middle East due to violent Islamic extremists, you can finally start to realize that Obama has reversed the strategy we had developed after 911. Instead of defeating a regime that supports and funds Islamic terrorism worldwide, we are now rewarding and codifying one that supports it.
