Let's not forget that Obama played a major role in turning Syria into what it is today

Obama decided that he was going to fund, arm and train Syrian insurgents to overthrow President Assad. Obama helped destabilize Syria, which led to MILLIONS of refugees pouring out of the country and massive suffering and death. What Obama nor Susan Rice could comprehend, apparently, was that Russia was not going to allow Syria to be lost to the jihadists.

I can only wonder what Syria would be today had Obama stayed out of Syria entirely.

Assad is a BAD guy, for sure, but at least he's secular. The last thing the world needs is another Islamic, jihadist nation, which is what Obama tried to give the world.

Syria was a catastrophic mistake by Obama.

Well that was pointless in the extreme. Is this supposed to make Trump look less weak and stupid in abandoning the Kurds? Or less of a liar for saying he's bringing the troops home, when he's actually redeploying them to Iraq and sending an addiitional 3000 troops to Saudi Arabia.

Even though the Saudis didn't help you at Normandy either, and 13 of the 18 9/11 bombers held Saudi passports. And murdered and dismembered Adnan Khashogi.

It was "pointless"? Obama supported an insurgency that resulted in massive destruction, death and MILLIONS of refugees that has cost the west BILLIONS of dollars.

Had Obama stayed out, it's quite possible that Syria would be stable today and they, themselves could have protected their own borders from ISIS.

There isn't a single credible person that will come out and proclaim what Obama did as good policy.

You cannot tolerate any criticism of Obama. For you, everything Obama did and said was golden.

Hillary Clinton Supplied Cash, Weapons, Tanks, Training to Al Qaeda to Kill Gaddafi & Weaponize "ISIS" In Syria
Hillary Clinton Supplied Cash, Weapons, Tanks, Training to Al-Qaeda to Kill Gaddafi & Weaponize "ISIS" in Syria – True Pundit
Oct 16, 2016 · Clinton directly armed and commissioned known terrorists and publicly sworn U.S. foes with weapons in Libya, a secret reversal of U.S. policy and direct violation of UN Security Council resolution 1973, which called for a complete arms embargo on Libya. Clinton and President Barack Obama together financed Al-Qaeda to overthrow Libyan government and stockpile weapons, including tanks and heavy artillery, which were ultimately shipped from Libya

These are the three architects of the disastrous Syria policy. I call this "The blind leading the blind". Obama had no clue what he was doing and neither did the two bimbos in this pic.

He helped set up Morsi in Egypt too. That got snipped pretty quick.

Defend the Black man at all costs eh? Obama is the reason we are there. He and Hillary are the reason Libya is in a shambles.

Lack of new military use. Otherwise very little has changed.

Well he started that little Iraq war. That threw the whole middle east off. Then that lead to ISIS and that lead to the Syria war. Without the Iraq war none of this happens.
Well, I'm not going to blame Bush for Obama's policy in Syria. Frankly, taking out Saddam was a good move, but Bush fucked up what came after.

The bottom line is that Obama intentionally weakened Syria which made it susceptible to invasion by ISIS. Had Obama stayed out, perhaps ISIS wouldn't have been able to operate with impunity there for so long.

What did Bush have to do with Syria?

Maybe we should start calling you "Braindead"...

What started the war in Syria was Obama's attempt to overthrow Assad by arming "rebel" groups (including ISIS)...

He then sent our troops into Syria in an ILLEGAL (since it was NEVER approved by Congress) and ineffective attempt to straighten out the mess HE created...

Thank God Trump was able to defeat ISIS...

All that was possible thanks to the Iraq war. You are pretty braindead if you can't see that.
