Turkey Just Flipped Obama Off BIG TIME – They Are DONE With Him After THIS Happened…
Obama keeps pushing his faux peace deal in Syria with Turkey. What a horrid joke. This man doesn’t have a clue over foreign policy. And it’s freaking dangerous on an international scale. Turkey has pretty much had it up to here with Obama. This won’t stop Russia from bombing or ISIS from committing terrorist attacks. Turkey is no saint here either – there are bad players on all sides including ours. Syria is now a blasted hell hole that is all but unlivable and is only awaiting being divvied up between Russian, Iran and Assad. Two weeks after Obama and Putin made their slimy, evil pact, the ceasefire finally goes into effect. Russia had atrocities to commit first and besides, this so-called ceasefire is about as viable as John Kerry as the Easter Bunny. Wait.
From The Political Insider:
The Russian-American agreement on a partial cease fire in Syria, hailed by President Vladimir Putin as a “real chance” to stop the war, got a wary welcome this week in Turkey, whose government fears that Moscow will exploit the deal and continue with its bombing campaign to redraw the battlefield of Syria in favor of Bashar Assad’s regime.
It’s not only distrust of Russia, which according to Turkish Deputy Prime Minister Numan Kurtulmus has completed 8,000 sorties since October, nine-tenths of them directed against the moderate opposition and civilian targets, and only a tenth against the fighters of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant.
Adding to doubts about Moscow’s intentions in Syria is the fact that the accord goes into effect on Saturday, more than two weeks after the U.S. and Russia announced there would be a cessation of hostilities. “Apparently the Russians had some things to do on the ground,” said a senior Turkish official.
Then there’s the loophole that allows Russia — or the U.S.-led coalition — to continue bombing ISIL and Jabhat al Nusra, the Al Qaeda affiliate, whose fighters are mixed with moderate rebels in Syria’s rebel-held Idlib province.
And, above all, the skepticism about the cease-fire deal reflects the Turkish ruling establishment’s loss of confidence in Moscow’s negotiating partner in Syria — Washington. Officials in Ankara say they doubt the U.S. has the political will to see that this or any other agreement is upheld.
After nearly five years of watching Washington fumble the Syria crisis, Turkish officials say they are giving up on the Obama administration and will await its successor to craft a strategy for sorting out the Middle East’s expanding conflict.
The ceasefire allows for Russia or the US to keep bombing ISIS. Normally, I would be all for that except neither of them are really bombing ISIS. Instead, Russia will use it as an ‘oops’ provision and will keep attacking the rebels. No one, including Turkey, believes that Obama has the stones to uphold even the most minor agreement here. After five years of deliberate malfeasance, Turkey has given up on America. Right there with them on that one. Americans have given up on their own government as well. Obama is a disgraceful embarrassment to all of us. Hopefully, the next president will have more of a spine. I also hope he has the political and military will to back up our foreign policy. That has been woefully lacking these last eight years.
