LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Weakening America is Obama’s specialty

- - Friday, June 27, 2014

Is our current president deliberately trying to weaken America, as well as trying to change its long-held values and traditions? President Obama was instrumental in the insistence that Egypt's longtime dictator, Hosni Mubarak, had to be removed. Mr. Obama showered compliments, as well as money and armaments, on Mohammed Morsi, the head of the Muslim Brotherhood, who attempted to make Egypt into an Islamic nation. If the Egyptian people hadn't risen up and deposed the Muslim Brotherhood, the region would have looked a lot different today with Mr. Obama's support of Mr. Morsi.

Instead of enforcing stronger sanctions on Iran in its quest for nuclear weapons, Mr. Obama did the complete opposite and stopped all sanctions. Instead, he opted for "negotiations" with our worst terrorist threat. This action was a deliberate knife in the back to Israel, our only real ally in that part of the world.

Mr. Obama has just supplied the Taliban with its five top leaders and mass murderers in return for the release of an American soldier who had deserted his unit.

After the sacrifice of vast amounts of money and men and women, we had won the war in Iraq and the country was relatively stable. Then Mr. Obama announced that all American troops would be leaving the country. Why was that necessary? Have we left South Korea, Germany, etc.? Just look at the turmoil that would have been. It is what is now unfolding in Iraq.

I won't dwell on the multitude of scandals that have engulfed the Obama administration, but suffice it to say that any one of them would have had a Republican president impeached by now.
