LETTER TO THE EDITOR: U.S. now a symbol of weakness

- - Thursday, May 22, 2014

The breaking off of talks between Israel and the Palestinians highlights President Obama's failures in foreign policy and national security matters on every front: Iran, Syria, Iraq, the overall Middle East, Afghanistan, Russia, Asia and Europe ("Israel halts peace talks with Palestinians," Web, April 23).

Mr. Obama's continued agenda against our economy, as well as his way of dealing with alien criminals, illegal immigrants and the flow of illegal aliens across our borders, are all seriously damaging our domestic security.

It's simply inexcusable that the United States now stands as a symbol of weakness in the world. Our economic and national insecurity are evidence of that. Surely our survival rests with major changes in overreaching government and government leadership, which must be addressed in the 2014 and 2016 elections.
