EU and Arab allies of the United States are breaking away from an illogical US policy on Syria but not before depicting publicly their frustration with the Obama Administration.
These are the words some allies have uttered recently, after tail coating an Obama rabbit-in-a-hat Syrian policy, as they finally break away from that policy.
For the PM of a major EU country and close ally of the US to respond publicly to the weak arguments of an administration desperate to see Assad survive says plenty about the mistrust some in Europe have with a WH waltzing on a deceptive tight rope.
This, in my opinion, is diplo-speak for “What the $%#^&*@!( is wrong with you? An opportunity presents itself to defeat one of the most destabilizing and violent regimes in Middle East and you stand by this regime of terror as if you are protecting it? What the &$*(#@?” is wrong with this US President?” This is my opinion of course and I can never prove what this particular diplomat was thinking.
This statement to me shows a level of frustration indicative that an imposturous act has taken place. Did someone at the WH promise a new dawn to rise after the elections only to renege on that promise?
Some of our allies are now speaking to the WH by making public statements. It cannot be more telling of their frustration with President Obama and his team of foreign policy advisors unwilling to defeat our worst enemies.
Secretary Kerry may just be facing his first international mutiny in his first month in office. A crowning achievement indeed. I wonder what the title of that chapter in his memoirs will read. “I Saved the Human Race Because I Averted World War III”?
Many EU countries, who stand firm by their embargo against sending sophisticated weapons to the rebels, have warned lately of the radicalization of some of the Muslims returning from fighting in Syria. One would think they would address this danger to their homeland with a policy change on Syria, but their leaders think otherwise. I have just removed my “Complaint Box” for these countries and if radicalization eventually stiffens their softness and dashes their hopes of dealing with homegrown extremism using velvet and silk, do not complain to anyone else either.
Meanwhile, do not believe a word Obama says about Assad. He is protecting him more than Putin is.
