You know that little spoiled rotten snot who if he doesn’t get his way he throws a temper tantrum? Well it appears that is what the US Pentagon is acting like nowadays along with the inept Obama Administration, its boss!
The Pentagon is refusing to share intel on ISIS with Russia unless Moscow changes its stance on Syrian President Assaud. In taking this stance Washington has rejected the Russian offer for cooperation in defeating the terrorist org ISIS, the Islamic State.
Since Russia’s President Vladimir Putin launched his campaign against ISIS this past September Russia has been offering to share intel with the US and NATO in hopes Washington would reciprocate. However, the Pentagon is still refusing the offer saying they are NOT going to cooperate with Russia until the Russians change their position on Assaud’s future.
Russia has maintained the position that the Syrian people must be allowed to decide who their leader is or will be and not US imperialism! Further, Russia has consistently spoken out against Washington’s REGIME CHANGE strategy which as we all know how worked out so well —- NOT! Look at the shinning examples of this regime change in Libya which has been in chaos ever since Washington removed long time leader and dictator Moamar Khadafi a few years ago. There is now no central united government in Libya and al-Qaeda along with ISIS rules large chunks of LIbya. Things are not much better in Iraq which, if you recall, was tagged by Bush 2 to be transformed into a nation of “peace and democracy.” Iraq is in chaos and the same thing is now happening in Afghanistan.
The Obama Administration’s strategy in Syria has been one of foolishness! Washington wants Assaud removed and plans on making a deal with ISIS latter once they, ISIS, has removed Assaud. That’s outright crazy and stupid IMO! Since when do we negotiate with terrorist? Russia’s strategy is just the opposite. Russia plans on removing ISIS and leaving Assaud in power or at least leave his fate up to the Syrian people. ISIS is NOT trustworthy! They are not only Muslim religious extremists but they are also nothing but a pack of sex crazed, drug addicted mass killers! How on earth can the Obama Administration think that it can work a deal out with them at ANY point on ANY thing???
Russia has provided air support for the Syrian Army fighting against ISIS and it’s been helping Syria to recapture towns and territories taken by ISIS previously. The Obama Administration does not consider Assaud’s regime to be legitimate and they want him gone. But they consider ISIS legitimate??? WTF? Assaud is the elected president of Syria just as Egypt’s Morsi was elected leader only to be removed, imprisoned, and replaced by a military dictator who kisses the Pentagon’s ass! It appears Washington ONLY considers leaders legit if they kiss Washington’s ass!
The bottomline is this. Russia and Putin are set on eliminating ISIS while the US and Obama are set on eliminating Assaud. Washington is trying to force Russia into agreeing with the Washington strategy but Russia refuses. The result is that the Pentagon refuses to share intel on ISIS with Russia. Further, Russia has accused the US of NOT striking ISIS targets in its air campaign that is supposed to be targeting ISIS fighters and bases. Russia has alleged that the US is actually striking foes of ISIS which amounts to the Obama Administration consorting with the enemy!
Putin most likely does NOT need Washington’s intel on ISIS as he also has the help of Chinese intel. Putin is extending a hand of cooperation and Obama is refusing like some spoiled child not getting his way. The fact of the matter is that the Obama Administration is inept in terms of foreign policy, et al. I don’t call negotiating with the enemy ISIS foreign policy! I call it TREASON!! And frankly that IS what this administration is guilty of!!
Russia and Putin have the CORRECT GOAL and strategy. REMOVE ISIS! Then let the people of SYRIA decide who leads them. Once again the Obama Administration is on the WRONG side as they were in Iraq, Libya, and Syria. What Washington has done especially in Libya is create a nation in chaos and as bad as Khadafi or Saddam Hussein were the fact is they provided stability which seems to be something that Washington CANNOT provide in the Middle East any longer!
Once again we must ask what is Washington thinking? OR are they even thinking at all?
