Putin And Obama BRUTALLY Compared, SPARKING The Question, Is The U.S Military STRONG Enough These Days?

The world’s a much more scarier place than last year. From the Middle East to the South China Sea, the bad guys have grown stronger and fearless. Meanwhile, our allies and friends—suffering from economies much weaker than ours—are spending less and less on defense. Many people are suggesting this is due to Obama and his cutting down on military spending…but what is more important than protecting your own people and allies?

This means less help available to us, if things go from bad to worse. And U.S. troops will be even more hard-pressed to prevail, since our own military spending has been slashed 15 percent over the last four years. As trend lines go, these are deeply worrisome.

The world changes, whether we want it to or not. Last year, the Islamic State was just “a JV team” in the eyes of President Barack Obama. Today, the brutal Islamist group controls a third of the territory in two countries and commands a mobile light infantry army.

Russia began 2014 by flexing its muscles in its so-called near abroad, occupying Crimea and, later, invading Ukraine. Now Putin has pivoted to the Middle East, committing aircraft, missiles, tanks, and troops to preserve the terror-sponsoring regime of Syrian strongman Bashar Assad—one of the leading human rights abusers of the 21st century. Moscow’s initial attacks in Syria seem largely directed against U.S.-backed Syrian rebels rather than the Islamic State.

In 2014, China periodically “pushed” on American friends such as Japan, South Korea, and the Philippines. Now Beijing has built artificial islands across the South China Sea and demanded that everyone stay out of its newly expanded territorial waters.

Also last year, Iran was desperate to negotiate for some sanctions relief. Now they’re reaping a windfall: $150 billion in released funds, the removal of all restrictions on their conventional military programs (including ballistic missile technologies) and the prospect of resuming their nuclear weapons program in 15 years (or less, if they decide not to play by the rules—again).

The Obama administration’s persistently weak responses to provocation have only encouraged more aggressive behavior by our adversaries. And it’s led our friends to become increasingly dubious about whether America will truly come to their aid should a crisis come.

seen the U.S. withdraw prematurely from trouble spots. They’ve seen Washington cut troop and military spending year after year. And they know that our Western allies, still caught in the economic doldrums, are less able to provide the kind of force and facilities America has long relied on for support.

Friends who have counted on America to have their backs are now looking over their shoulders and seeing no one there.

Is there any doubt that protecting America and her people should be priority? Obama has weakened our borders, left an open invitation for illegal immigrants to enter, and downsized our military to ridiculous extremes, while burning bridges with one of our greatest allies, Israel. Does this sound like negligence or a SET UP to you?
