Words fail. Rational explanation fails. A president fails.
Who fights an enemy, the Taliban, by announcing, I’m gonna quit on a date certain and leave? And who’s gonna believe when he crows – and I won, after walking away and leaving the country to the enemy?
Who gets a despot, Assad, to go, by just saying a dictator’s gotta go ? And what’s the result gonna be when he just sits back in his rocker; and watches Iran and Russia provide the dictator with unlimited money, military goods and fighters from their Arsenals of Extremism ?
Who prevents a country, Ukraine, from being torn apart and annexed by Russia, by just – 3 Stooges style – hitting ,not Putin or Russia, but a few Russian bystanders? And what’s the result gonna be when the “hit” is ‘no vacation’ in America’s national parks; and their prize is a third of someone else’s country in your pocket?
Who counters medieval megalomaniacs’, Iran, push to take over great parts of the Middle East (Syria, Iraq, Lebanon) by asking or letting them guard the henhouse (Syria & Iraq)? And what’s the result gonna be when he’s busy “figuring out” what he’ll do; while Iran sends Revolutionary Guards army into Iran – and then, watch, into Syria?
