ANALYSIS/OPINION:

President Obama has betrayed our only solid allies in the Middle East; namely, the Kurds and Israel. With the failures of the airstrike campaign against the Islamic State, Mr. Obama betrayed the Kurds by failing to provide arms and significant military support for them to fight these terrorists.

Indeed, Mr. Obama should have established a strong military base in Kurdistan.

Worse, the president has betrayed Israel by playing a dangerous, one-sided game with Iran’s insidious campaign to finish developing its nuclear-weapons program, which will be used against Israel, America and the West.

Clearly, Mr. Obama’s unconscionable inaction and serial dereliction of duty is inviting national security disasters upon Israel and terrorist acts against the United States at the hands of a nuclear Iran and Islamic State. Coupled with his failures vis-a-vis the growing threat of Russia to us and our NATO allies, he has put the entire world as risk.
