Letter: Thoughts on U.S.-Middle East policy

Obama has no foreign policy

It is clear our President has no foreign policy. Washington just doesn’t get it. We cannot impose our ideas of freedom on the Middle East. Hitting Syria with a few bombs is crazy. We all know Obama is just trying to save face for the “red line” fiasco. Bombing Syria only plays into the hands of the Sunni Jihadists.

There are a least four major groups of Jihadists: Hezbollah, Al Qaeda, the Mahdi Army from Iraq and the good old Muslim Brotherhood running around in the Middle East. When these guys run out of people to kill, they turn on one another. ObamaCare is a train wreck waiting to happen and we don’t need another one in the Middle East.
