Jimmy Carter will go down in American history as “the president who lost Iran,” which during his term went from being a major strategic ally of the United States to being the revolutionary Islamic Republic. Barack Obama will be remembered as the president who “lost” Turkey, Lebanon and Egypt, and during whose tenure America’s alliances in the Middle East crumbled.

The superficial circumstances are similar. In both cases, a United States in financial crisis and after failed wars loses global influence under a leftist president whose good intentions are interpreted abroad as expressions of weakness. The results are reflected in the fall of regimes that were dependent on their relationship with Washington for survival, or in a change in their orientation, as with Ankara.

About my only problem with the above excerpt from an article about Obama’s and Hillary’s incompetent foreign policy is the “failed wars” bit. To some people ANY war is a “failed war” and since Iraq was listed as a “failed war” by the geopolitical intelligentsia back in 2003, that assertion has never been revised by that community, whether it makes sense or not.

But, there is no doubt that Obama’s foreign policy has been and continues to be disastrous for the world and for the USA. I said two years ago that it would take a generation to repair the damage Obama did to this country both domestically and internationally. I’m not happy about the growing number of people who are agreeing with me.
