Barack Obama has left a trail of ruin and misery in his eight year wake. From the collapsing Obamacare to his capitulation to the terrorist regime of Iran, to the abdication of world leadership to Russia and China, Obama and the postmodern Democrats seem intent on only one mission: to turn America into an iron-fisted regulatory state run by weaponized bureaucrats.
Michael J. Totten one of the finest foreign correspondents in the world has penned a superb memo regarding foreign policy to whomever wins the 2016 Presidential election.
I agree with most everything Totten writes except when he claims that it’s too late to turn back the deal with Iran. In fact, there is no deal with Iran beyond Obama’s secret executive agreements. No written treaty exists between America and Iran except in the fevered imagination of Democrat loyalists who prefer the warm embrace of delusion over cold reality.
Dear President-Elect, the world is beset by a constellation of problems – international terrorism, rogue states, and a renascent expansionist Russia. You will not be able to democratize the Middle East or diplomatically “engage” your way with the Vladimir Putins and Ali Khameneis of the world. These are problems to be managed rather than solved. At least the Israelis, who have become masters of this art, can commiserate with your unenviable role.
