In 2004, our U.S. military won a costly victory when we captured Fallujah at the cost of 100 Marines and soldiers killed in action and hundreds more wounded. Now, Al Qaeda has wiped out our victory by retaking Fallujah. Fallujah is an exemplar of Obama’s disastrous foreign and military policies designed to reduce the power and prestige of America on the world stage. Obama’s peculiar military policies are not based on incompetence. His military policies are part of his personal ideology to redistribute power in the world. When Obama told Joe the plumber that Obama wanted to “spread the wealth around,” that was only part of his plan. He also wants to spread power around to achieve his worldview that we-are-all-equal.
Just as Obama thinks it is unfair that the United States enjoys a higher standard of living than the rest of the world (even though we earned it), he thinks it is unfair that America has more military power than other countries. When he talks about “fundamentally transforming” the United States, he means he wants to reduce both our economic and our military superiority.
Obama has failed to negotiate Iran out of its steady progression toward becoming a nuclear nation. It’s been nearly two years since the Benghazi murders of our Ambassador and three other Americans, but nobody has paid a price and they remain unavenged. Obama’s intervention in Egypt was a tremendous disaster that replaced a pro-American dictator with the Muslim Brotherhood, a vicious opponent of Western values of freedom and representative government. Obama’s strange support for the Muslim Brotherhood indicates a willingness to align us with the Brotherhood’s revolutionary agenda. Al Qaeda now controls more territory in the Arab world than at any time in history, an area that stretches more than 400 miles across the heart of the Middle East.
