Counting Up Obama’s Cataclysmic Foreign Policy Failures

With the Islamic State expanding its reach after two key victories in Ramadi, the capital of Iraq’s Anbar Province, and Palmyra, a strategically important city in Syria, it might a good time to ask: What are the worst foreign policy failures of Barack Obama’s presidency?

The list is long; here are several to choose from.

    Counting up Obama’s foreign policy successes is a lot easier, because there are none.

    The problem is Obama and the various foreign enemies he is friendly with all see them as successes, because they weaken the country and embolden enemies.

    Now for a musical interlude…..
    and no, this is not meant as a liberal’s lament.

    No question Obama has been responsible for a number of cataclysmic foreign policy failures but they are not as described in this article.

    Firstly Obama “didn’t fail to anticipate the rise of ISIS” Obama CREATED ISIS with the purpose of toppling Assad.


    Likewise in Libya Obama (along with allies including Canada) provided arms and air support to Al Qaeda so as to topple Qaddafi. Today Libya is under ISIS control.

    In the Ukraine Obama spent Billions to overthrow a democratically elected leader (with the help of Neo-Nazi’s) prompting Russia to annex the Crimea which is home to its Black Sea Naval fleet (what choice did Putin have?)
