President Obama, already despised in certain conservative circles for spending portions of his administration taking various overseas apology tours on behalf of the United States, has done it again – only to the whole world, not just choice spots.
Before the United Nations, and while giving his supposed final speech to the U.N. General Assembly, Obama not only shot down America and the concept of sovereignty, U.S. exceptionalism and individual rights. But he also walked a dangerous line and practically gave up the idea – in front of the world’s leaders – of defeating one of America’s most brutal enemies: ISIS.
Was it an outright surrender to ISIS? Some say, yes.
As Conservative Tribune saw it: “Obama has given what was supposed to be his final address to the U.N. General Assembly, and it was a defeatist doozy on the inadequacy of military power in the struggle against Islamist extremism in Syria and elsewhere. By extension, since the U.S. is the world’s preeminent military power, that would mean our president essentially said we can’t win.”
The Daily Caller reported how Obama first spoke of the ongoing assault against ISIS in a manner that seemed to suggest the military wasn’t the answer.
He said: “If we are honest, we understand that no external power is going to be able to force different religious communities or ethnic communities to coexist for long,” the Daily Caller reported.
So his solution?
“[Let’s] be honest about the nature of these conflicts and our international community must continue to work with those who seek to build rather than to destroy,” he said, the Daily Caller said.
And then, he added this bit, in reference to Syria, which he charaterized as a place “where there’s no ultimate military victory to be won.”
Obama then called for more diplomacy and understanding for those who are different, but still deserving of “dignity and respect,” he said in his speech.
And Conservative Tribune noted: “We could be forgiven for wondering how any of this is supposed to work if we are led by liberal politicians who are reluctant to admit the often-obvious link between violence and radical Islam and who are more likely to criticize Christians than jihadists.”
