The world does not see President Obama’s efforts in Syria as helpful or useful… unless you are a jihadist. After a year of arming “moderates” who just happen to go join jihadist militias, or sell them their weapons, the administration is trying to play tough with Russia over being B.F.F.s with Bashar al-Assad.
When the so-called Arab Spring arrived, President Obama could barely contain his glee. He truly believed he was going to show the world how to set Islamic nations free. He was going to take the Bush years to school.
Well, something happened along the way and it seems that real life crashed into unicorn-rainbow fantasy foreign policy.
