During the Green Revolution in Iran in 2009 Iranian freedom fighters sent the White House an urgent memo calling for help. Obama ignored it, passing on the chance to finally displace the government established by the Ayatollah Khomeini in 1979. Before 1979 enjoying their short skirts, tanktops, freedom, education, music, dance, Iranians had a future to look forward to. Now Sharia law is strictly enforced.
Obama took the wrong side again supporting the Muslim Brotherhood’s Mohammed Morsi in Egypt when the people rose up against the newly elected leader as he became more authoritarian. He raised taxes massively and the price of staple foods. He announced that the presidency was above the law and not subject to judicial review. Things went from bad to worse and the people soon supported the military coup.
We saw the same thing yesterday when Obama could have supported the dismantling of an Islamic state, instead he urged everyone to support the democratically elected government of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. But As Lt. Col Ralph Peters states this coup may be Turkey’s last best hope. “The military and the people staging this coup are against the Islamists, fundamentalists and extremists. They’re for democracy. They’re for a secular constitution.” Is that what we need more of in this world we’re in today?
Nope, not Obama. He’s always for some strange reason on the side of the thugs and terrorists. We just need to show more love and compassion.
