The chief of the Egyptian armed forces, General Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi, who is also Egypt’s Minister of Defense, just met with Russia’s Defense Minister Sergei Shoygu in Cairo to discuss military cooperation between Egypt and Russia and to pave the way for Russian President Vladimir Putin’s upcoming visit to the country.
This comes as a direct result of U.S. President Barack Hussein Obama’s misguided and failed policies towards Egypt and the Middle East in general and compromises and jeopardizes both the national security of the United States and the national security of America’s friends and allies in the region.
Nature abhors a vacuum and the vacuum created by Obama’s abandoning American interests in the Middle East, his leaving America’s friends and allies there to fend for themselves and his proclivity to meddle in their internal affairs for ideological reasons is rapidly being filled by the Russians and many, many others as well.
None of whom have America’s best interests at heart.
This is very bad news for America and Americans…as the United States abandons its friends and allies so too will they abandon the U.S. and the consequences for America will be very serious indeed.
Thanks to Obama the United States is already hated and mistrusted throughout the Middle East and it is rapidly becoming irrelevant too. Anyone who thinks that is beneficial for the U.S. is dreaming in technicolor.
Beneficial it isn’t, harmful as hell it is, harmful as hell it will be.
Obama’s actions and behavior in the Middle East, not his rhetoric and “commitments” but his actual actions and behavior, have caused a great deal of harm to the United States and its friends and allies there and promise to cause a great deal more.
Just look at Egypt for one example among many.
Throwing former President Hosni Mubarak under the bus, throwing his lot in with the hated Muslim Brotherhood, significantly cutting aid to Egypt, plotting to get the Egyptian Army involved in a civil war to overthrow General Sisi and who knows what else…its no wonder that Egypt is turning away from the U.S.
The same is true for America’s other friends and allies in the Middle East too.
America may not have lost them all quite yet but thanks to Obama it is very close to doing so.
Saudi Arabia purchasing nuclear weapons from Pakistan, Egypt’s new ties with Russia, Iran being this close to becoming a nuclear power, the carnage in Syria, Israel being more and more at odds with the United States every day, the rise of Islamism in Turkey…all of this and much, much more…all of which can be ascribed to Obama’s fecklessness…can he or anyone else describe how any of it is in America’s best interests?
No they can’t.
Because none of it is.
Like I said, beneficial it isn’t, harmful as hell it is, harmful as hell it will be.
