"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free." - President Ronald Reagan
It's tempting to say that Obama's chickens have come to roost. However, this is more like the vampires have come home to do a lot more than roosting.
Reality always has the last word and the situation in Syria speaks for itself, as we see in news reports:
Russian warplanes began bombarding Syrian opposition targets in the war-torn nation's north Wednesday, following a terse meeting at which a Russian general asked Pentagon officials to clear out of Syrian air space and was rebuffed, Fox News has learned.
A U.S. official said Russian airstrikes targeted fighters in the vicinity of Homs, located roughly 60 miles east of a Russian naval facility in Tartus, and were carried out by a "couple" of Russian bombers. The strikes hit targets in Homs and Hama, but there is no presence of ISIS in those areas, a senior U.S. defense official said. These planes are hitting areas where Free Syrian Army and other anti-Assad groups are located, the official said.
According to a U.S. senior official, Presidents Obama and Putin agreed on a process to "deconflict" military operations. The Russians on Wednesday "bypassed that process," the official said.
"That's not how responsible nations do business," the official said.
Well, it may not be how responsible nations do business. Nevertheless, it is how nations do business when they've concluded that the U.S. is not around anymore. Where are we now? Where are we 4 years after President Obama decided to leave Iraq to keep a silly campaign promise about ending wars? This is where we are. Russia has forged alliances with Syria, Iran, and Iraq to apparently share intelligence to destroy ISIS. So far, it looks more and more like an alliance to save Assad and take over the air space in that region. For years, we heard that the U.S. did too much or was too quick to get involved. We are watching today what happens when we do nothing.
