The once Great Superpower that would confront atrocities and evil in the world, relegated to BEGGING Islamic Terrorists in Nigeria with signs.
The world is laughing it’s collective arses off at us.
Obama has single-handedly shown the world that America is a weak, pathetic nation. From Putin’s invasion of Crimea, to North Korea’s and Iran’s belligerence with nuclear weapons – America continues to sink to new lows of telegraphing pathetic weakness.
Now, after a horrific Jihadist terror attack and kidnapping of 300 school girls in Nigeria whereby the Al-Qaeda-linked terror group Boko Haram has vowed to sell into slavery, Obama demonstrates the limits of our foreign policy and power by having his wife hold up signs begging Islamic Jihadists to stop their evil via Twitter hashtags.
More than Pathetic.
Derelict. Foolish. Reprehensible.
Mark Steyn has a hilarious opinion in regards to this emasculating ineptitude:
It is hard not to have total contempt for a political culture that thinks the picture at right is a useful contribution to rescuing 276 schoolgirls kidnapped by jihadist savages in Nigeria. Yet some pajama boy at the White House evidently felt getting the First Lady to pose with this week’s Hashtag of Western Impotence would reflect well upon the Administration. The horrible thing is they may be right: Michelle showed she cared – on social media! – and that’s all that matters, isn’t it?
Just as the last floppo hashtag, #WeStandWithUkraine, didn’t actually involve standing with Ukraine, so #BringBackOurGirls doesn’t require bringing back our girls. There are only a half-dozen special forces around the planet capable of doing that without getting most or all of the hostages killed: the British, the French, the Americans, Israelis, Germans, Aussies, maybe a couple of others. So, unless something of that nature is being lined up, those schoolgirls are headed into slavery, and the wretched pleading passivity of Mrs Obama’s hashtag is just a form of moral preening.
…~Arguments about why Hillary Clinton refused to put Boko Haram on the State Department terror list are about as useful as an Obama hashtag right now. But it is worth remembering that the group’s first terrorism attack was a recent as 2011. They are, therefore, part of the same metastasization of jihadist violence throughout the northern half of the African continent as the Benghazi assault and the Kenyan shopping-mall attack. This growth of al-Qaeda affiliates went on throughout almost the entirety of Obama’s first term, but because Joe Biden had a cute line (“bin Laden is dead and General Motors is alive”) nobody paid any attention to it. #NothingToSeeHere.
