International affairs, is it, our business or is it not??? From the Front Page Sections, translated…
The commentaries on Washington Post pointed out, that the most accidental achievement that President Obama has internationally was that he made the Americans feel, that the tragedies in Syrian was not the Americans’ responsibilities.
The commentaries aid, that ten years ago, the conflicts in Darfur, Sudan had caused humanitarian problems, the American churches got involved in saving Darfur; in 2001, the IS destroyed the two most precious statues of Buddha, it’d shocked the world.
Today, the IS bombed the ancient sites of Palmyra; half of Syrians citizens are without homes, and over a quarter of a million were killed, but, in the U.S. the calls for “Saving Darfur” back then wasn’t changed into “Saving Syria”.
The Americans are not enthusiastic about saving Syrian, one of the reason being the president, Obama. He kept consoling the people, that not doing anything is the intelligent, and most fitting to the morals. He’d often stated, that there’s nothing that the U.S. can do, that the forces fighting in Syrian are a bunch of “doctors, farmers, and pharmacists”.
He’d also said, that if U.S. intervened, it can only make matters worse. When he was interviewed by the “New Republic” Magazines in 2013, he’d stated, “I’m thinking about our limits, not our warring abilities or our capabilities.”
He’d asked, “If there are millions being slaughtered in Syrian, and, tens of thousands being murdered in Congo, which country do I offer aid to?”, it’d also hinted, that if the U.S. can’t solve every single problem in the world, then, maybe, they should just, stand by and watch.
Obama promised, that he will take actions, if the U.S. can no longer cope with just watching from the sidelines, the goings on in Syrian, or when something truly awful happens; training the resistance army, set up safety zones in the borders of Turkey. But, once the heat subsided, then, the plans would be abandoned, or downsized.
The Washington Post pointed out, that the supporters of Obama don’t see what he was doing as a “necessary evil”, which was, a great achievement. And, the U.S. finally led the world with its brains and NOT its emotions, and learned to be humble, to not be egotistical. The realists pointed out, that when the U.S. is guided by the ideals and the emotions, then, troubles appear, like the black hawk helicopters getting shot down in Somalia.
The media said, that if Obama’s doing nothing can yield better results, then, they have nothing more to say. But, the actual situation had turned into a humanitarian disaster. Iraq had become a nation of terrorists, and, Syria now has chemical weapons being used, the Islamic Nation is calling on millions of foreign soldiers, and is already, threatening the safety of the U.S. soil, and the crowds of refugees are causing European instability.
So, why do you think that President Obama is now, taking this laissez faire approach, when apparently, the WORLD is requiring that the U.S. get intervened? Perhaps, because, the president is now, realizing, that the trend of U.S. behavior in involving itself in war in history, like the war in Iraq when Bush was the president, along with all the wars that don’t involve the U.S. originally, and, butting in, in all those times in history only caused U.S. casualties, and, Obama’s not doing anything is also, pissing people off, but, examine the events in history, like how the war in Iraq had worked out for the Bush presidency…
