Why Aren’t More Americans Angry about U.S. Defeat in the Middle East?

The obliviousness of so many to America’s humiliation in the Middle East fills me with despair. Maybe U.S. defeat will stimulate action to hold those responsible — mostly leftists — but I doubt it. Too many people are still asleep, and the Obama administration, its lapdogs in the defense establishment and MSM toadies, are spinning the debacle to maintain obliviousness.

Sadly, with very few exceptions, Republicans have done little to alert Americans to the nation’s loss of international prestige and its likely consequences.

    So what would “winning” in the Middle East look like? How would it be different from “losing” — in a region necessarily filled with unpleasant Middle Easterners?

    But American involvement in the Middle East is wrong for one reason. We refuse to study, evaluate and name the enemy – Islamic theology.

    You simply cannot win any fight inside a Muslim population without dealing with Islamic theology.

    If we are unwilling to bomb them with cartoons, we simply waste our blood and money trying to win with conventional bombs.

    The Islamic cult needs a battalion of PhD psychologists and MD psychiatrists geared up for the civilizational fight of humanity.

    Admit this reality. Or get a burka for your daughters.

    A better question would be why aren’t more American’s angry about U.S. interventions in the Middle East?

    Obama and Hillary armed Al Qaeda in Libya in order to topple a stable government. Obama and Hillary armed Al Qaeda in Syria in a bid to topple a stable government. Obama and Hillary sided with the Muslim brotherhood when they seized power in Egypt. George W Bush illegally invaded Iraq and destabilized that country.

    If Americans are not angry about these “defeats” it is probably because they are waking up to the fact that the U.S. shouldn’t have been involved in these countries in the first place.

    An Arab once said that if we would destroy Mecca and Medina that would prove that our God was greater than their Allah,and then the Muslims would become Christians. Since we’re not allowed to win under any U.S. Admin., we won’t do that, so we might as well hunker down, prepare for the worst, and pray that Obama won’t do anymore harm and once we get a new President, just concentrate on recovering from the damage done by Obama’s stupidity and treason and Congress’s unwillingness to counter it, and just try to protect our country from the depredations of the Muslims who are here, and keeping out those who are not. Any way you look at it, the future looks grim. Americans know that there are no good choices left to us thanks to years of inept leadership.. The way things look right now, I’ll be voting for Trump.

    Admit this or lose.
