Why 2015 should be a great year for enemies of the West

The essence of Barack Obama’s weakness is that he does not have the mental capacity to deal with the world’s complexities. The West’s opponents know this and are likely to strike out further before he leaves office and is replaced by someone more competent

“If you thought the first two years of the second term of the Obama presidency meant bad news for the West, just wait for the remaining two. And of those two remaining years, there a good reasons why we should be particularly worried about the prospects for 2015.

First we need to take a step or two back: what exactly is it about Barack Obama that causes us such alarm and gives our enemies such comfort? In a sense the answer is quite straightforward and is often remarked upon: it’s his weakness. The trouble is that that’s not particularly helpful unless we can define precisely what kind of weakness we are talking about.

After all, the United States remains by far the most militarily powerful nation on the planet. Obama has not disbanded the Marine Corps. Nor has he shown much reluctance to use the American military to lethal effect. Far more people have been killed by drone strikes under the Obama administration than by any other government on the planet, past or present.”

    Obama has not disbanded the Marine Corps but does not trust them either

    “Apparently Obama’s Secret Service doesn’t trust the USMC. Simply
    searching each guy to make sure he didn’t have a live round hidden on
    him wasn’t enough, they had to make sure the guns were inoperable.”

    This seems quite possible:

    In the international arena, Barack Obama has the political sophistication of a below average 15 year old. What’s worse, is that all of the West’s enemies now know it. Which brings us to the reason why 2015 could be such a bad year.

    The West’s enemies are bound to conclude that they’d better make hay while the sun shines.

  • The problem with Obama is not his race, but his own individual lack of intelligence, which explains his flirtation with Islam and his general incompetence in every field (except golf?).

      Nope, he’s a pretty shitty golfer also.

    True. True. But Obama does have the brains to run a rather complicated Chicago-styled political kickback system, using federal and Democratic money to bribe favoured groups, essentially to buy votes. Obama has brains in the sense that the old Italian-Mafiosi had brains. But that’s it. Once he gets out in the bribe-free world of international politics, he is as stupid as they come.
