Allen West: While y’all are watching the Olympics, Putin just made his move

It appears the grand strategy of that brilliant foreign policy mind, Barack Hussein Obama, has failed.

As Written By Allen B. West:

There’s a completely false narrative going around regarding success against ISIS and things going well in the Middle East Syria-Iraq combat theater of operations.

As a matter of fact, we heard very little from President Obama as he blathered along last week at the Pentagon. After all, an unmarked cargo plane landing in the middle of the night in Iran with pallets of laundered money at the same time four American illegally detained individuals are released — well, of course that’s not a ransom payment. And so the storytelling spun by the impeccable literary genius Ben Rhodes continues…

As reported by the Washington Free Beacon, “The Russian government is working to pick off Syrian rebels armed and trained by the U.S. to fight against the Islamic State who have often been dissatisfied with Washington’s assistance.

The political leader of a prominent U.S.-backed brigade in Aleppo said he met with a Russian official nearly two weeks ago, who offered him “unlimited amounts of weaponry and close air support” to wage war with ISIS and Jabhat al Nusra, an al Qaeda-linked jihadist group in Syria, the Daily Beast reported [last] Friday.

Mustafa Sejry said members of his Liwa al-Mu’tasim Brigade were concerned about shifting their loyalties to Russia given Moscow’s close alliance with their enemy—the regime of President Bashar al-Assad.

“Honestly, I would have never ever even thought about working with the Russians after their horrific atrocities against us and their slaughtering thousands of my own people,” Sejry said. “But this change of mindset I blame on the Americans.”

Sejry said the Russians told him they wanted to “go back to 2012 when there was a government and an opposition,” which would divert resources from the fights against ISIS and other militant groups in the region. Sejry said he hoped to use Moscow’s offer to leverage improved support from the U.S., but expressed doubt as he described a year and a half of weak American backing and “broken promises,” the Daily Beast reported.

He said he told two U.S. military officials about the Russian offer, but has yet to receive a response. Sejry’s claims of Russians attempting to poach U.S.-backed Syrian rebels come roughly three weeks after the Obama administration reached an agreement with Russian President Vladimir Putin that instructs the two military forces to coordinate joint bombing operations against al Nusra. The provisional deal mandates the U.S. military to share information with Russia about specific targets in Syria, in exchange for Moscow halting its bombing campaign against U.S.-supported rebels.”

It appears the grand strategy of that brilliant foreign policy mind, Barack Hussein Obama, has failed. If you recall, the strategy to defeat ISIS was to arm Syrian rebels, and remember nearly $45 million was spent to train about a dozen rebels, of whom only about five survived an assault by al-Qaida-affiliated Islamists.

Instead, we see Vladimir Putin’s grand plan in Syria has succeeded. He’s come off as the strongman by ensuring his proxy, Bashar al-Assad, remains in power. And now, it’s about stabilizing the situation in Syria for Assad, meaning turning the Syrian-backed rebels away from fighting Assad towards fighting the Islamists, the al-Qaida-affiliated Al Nusra Front and ISIS. Here is the evidence and proof that Obama’s strategy is failing, while he’s relaxing on his “final” summer vacay in Martha’s Vineyard.

Here is yet another policy point a certain presidential candidate should be elaborating upon. The United States is not a trusted entity, our word has no meaning. How many times did Barack Obama state that Bashar al-Assad must …..

    Everything obama does weakens the US….think that;s accidental? Not on your life. He has stripped America inside and out. Gutted the halls of liberty and burned the trusses of respect. Broken down our culture till it seeped into the sewers. Accident? I think not.

    Allen West calls obama ‘not so bright” ….we call it by it’s real name. Destruction.

    “But this change of mindset I blame on the Americans.”

    No, not on the AMERICANS, on Obama and the leadership of the Demonrat Party in America – none of whom can be called true Americans. Most of them have committed one or more acts of treason against this nation. They actively seek to destroy the USA as a constitutional republic and turn it into an oligarchy run by a political elite – themselves. To say that Obama is ‘not so bright’ is a fallacy that assumes he would like to do a good job as POTUS but doesn’t have the ability to do so. In reality, just the opposite is true. Once you come to the understanding that everything he does is designed to undermine our nation and our cultural heritage, that he is an enemy of this nation, then virtually everything he does makes sense – from his point of view.

      I agree wholeheartedly! I have been saying this since his first year in office. He has achieved many of his goals. God help us if he ever makes it to the UN as Secretary General, which I believe is another of his goals! The UN needs to be eliminated, since the only thing United about it is the resentment of the U.S. and Israel….ant not only by the 57 Muslim controlled countries! I don’t understand why progressive politicians haven’t learned that you can’t buy love! However, with strength and courage, you can earn respect as demonstrated by thr Reagan administration.

    With skippy at 1600, there is a huge vacuum in world power. Since nature abhors a vacuum, it gets filled by what used to be also ran.

    When Obama promised Hope and Change he wasn’t talking to the American People. He was adressing his Muslim Brothers. How come everytime he is shown their is a Muslim Prayer Curtain behind him? It’s because he is one of them.

    “…evidence and proof that Obama’s strategy is failing”

    Dear Leader has no strategy. When it comes to foreign affairs, Dear Leader thinks that, as king, he simply waves his magic wand, voila, and people will do his bidding. That is the result of nearly eight years of being surrounded by toadies and lick-spittle types.
