When it comes to domestic policies, Barack Obama may have earned himself a B+. His single victory over the health industry’s lawless capitalism, which ushered the era of the Affordable Care Act, is quite remarkable. No doubt about it. Many middle and low-income Americans will always be grateful for that exceptional legislation. But when it comes to international affairs, the U.S., Europe, and the Middle East, as a whole, are still paying for the past horrible foreign policies of Barack Obama.

Let us count the ways.

Three particular foreign policies blunders come to mind.

  • Ignoring Vladimir Putin after he invaded and annexed the Crimea in Ukraine by imposing useless sanctions. Compare that to today’s response by the Biden presidency as it sends heavy weapons for Ukraine to defend herself.
  • His Iran Deal, which sent the Iranians $150 Billions the Mullahs have since used to terrorize their enemies, including many of the Arab countries, Israel, and the United States.
  • Last but not least is his timid red line on Syria, which he drew and let a two-bit dictator cross with impunity. The Assad regime still manufactures WMD it hopes to use against Israel in the future.

To this day, we are still paying for these grave mistakes. The latest is the caustic invasion of all of Ukraine. Had Barack Obama been our President today, Ukraine would be a wholly-owned Oblast under Russian occupation and oppression.

Did the genocide in Chechnya not happen under Obama’s watch too?

THE CRIMEA AND TODAY’S UKRAINE

Up until few weeks ago, I had yet to read a serious article holding Barack Obama accountable for his blunders on Russia until I read S.E. Cupp article on CNN entitled “Obama’s Stunning Blind Spot on Russia“.

In it, Cupp challenges Obama’s discounting the threat Senator Mitt Romney leveled against Putin during their debates in 2012. If you recall, Obama thought Russia was a JV team. Except Putin invaded Ukraine, in addition to carving himself a warm beachhead on the Mediterranean in Syria on his watch. All while he played golf and ignored the JV team to our east.

In describing Obama’s attitude on his past mistakes, Cupp writes:

You’d think that his smugness around Russia then — and the subsequent events proving him dead wrong — would have humbled the former president. But if he feels any regret, he’s not showing it. At a conference titled “Disinformation and the Erosion of Democracy,” hosted by the University of Chicago’s Institute of Politics and The Atlantic this week, Obama was asked point blank if he wishes he’d been stronger on Putin knowing what we do now. Visibly annoyed, he answered, “I actually don’t, because the circumstances were different.” CNN by S.E. Cupp - April 8, 2022

How different, he would not say. In reality, there were not different than today. Barack Obama never believed Russia was a real threat, even when Vladimir Putin invaded and killed civilians in the tens of thousands.

THE IRAN DEAL

Every war, every act of terror, every occupation of Arab countries, and every threat our friends in Israel have defended against are due to one root cause: Barack Obama’s terrible Iran Deal.

Imagine for a moment that you are a lawyer drafting a contract where the remedy for wrongdoing, or non-payment of proceeds, is simply omitted from that contract. Yes, you are signing on the dotted-line, but it’s OK if you don’t pay in accordance with the terms of the contract. That’s the Iran Deal.

Barack Obama delayed Iran’s development of nuclear weapons until 2023 in return for paying them $150 billions the Iranians claim are their funds the US froze after the hostage-taking of our diplomats in 1979.

Never mind that some of that money belongs to tens of thousands of US families who suffered Iranian terror. Before and after the Iran Deal.

Ever since, we have a war in Yemen thanks to Barack Obama.

UNLEASH IRAN

There were no provisions in the Iran Deal to limit Iranian capacity to develop medium or long-range missiles that threaten our interests. There were no provisions to limit Iranian capacity to expand its footprint in the region. Furthermore, the Iran Deal did not have any specific language to limit Iranian terror in general. It simply unleashed Iranian occupation of Arab lands using conventional weapons of terror.

Ever since, we have a war in Yemen thanks to Barack Obama. We have Iran occupying and destroying one of the few democratic countries in the region in Lebanon, and we have the Iranian Mullahs delivering long-range missiles to try and destroy oil infrastructures in the Middle East.

Good job Barack Obama.

THE RED LINE IN SYRIA

As far as the red line on Syria, Barack Obama, single-handedly, demonstrated how impotent the Office of the White House could become when occupied by the wrong President. After ignoring Assad crossing his red line, America became the laughing stock of the world.

One could suffer the heavy air in Washington even as strong proponents of appeasement felt uneasy about his timidity. America never experienced such overt weakness before, and never felt as helpless as during the period when Obama attempted to punt that hot football to Congress to decide on what to do with Assad of Syria.

That moment in Barack Obama’s history remains the textbook to read for every new President taking office. It’s “101 – What Not Do as the President of the United States.”

This is just but another example describing the past horrible foreign policies of Barack Obama during his tenure.

Many still believe Obama walks on Water. I happen to think, when it comes to his foreign policy, he drowned himself and the country under six feet of water.

THE PAST HORRIBLE FOREIGN POLICIES OF BARACK OBAMA

There are no excuses to explain away the past horrible foreign policies of Barack Obama.

It is all self-inflicted. It’s all the result of his ignorance of world affairs, which he learned about sitting in the front row listening to church preachers, or in books written by ignorant communist sympathizers.

Obama’s naivete and ignorance strike a bad note in his repertoire of whitewashing his history by refusing to admit the horrific mistakes he made leading us to today’s tragedy.

Barack Obama was never ready to become President back in 2008. Period.
