The media has been hand-wringing over President Trump blaming President Obama over what is happening in Syria. You know who else blames Obama? This survivor of the 2013 Syrian Chemical attack.
H/T to the kids at The Blaze for this…
I can say with all truth that the most painful memory about that attack was watching President [Barack] Obama failing to fulfill his promise about [crossing] the red line.
He [Obama] broke his promise. And with that broken promise, he broke a lot of hearts in Syria. And he made a lot of people give up on any kind of help from the international community. A lot of people saw that that was the end. That no matter what the hell Assad’s going to do, nobody’s going to stop him. Nobody’s going to punish him, just for once.
This guy just dropped the mic.
Now, there will be plenty of Obama apologists peeing themselves with impatience to defend their hope and change hero. Don’t. As Kassem Eid points out, the Syrian Civil War began in 2011. Obama was president in 2011. Obama “drew a red line” with Assad. Assad crossed the red line. Obama’s reaction?
So that’s technically Hillary, but close enough for government work.
America isn’t perfect. But America’s role in the world, at least since World War II, had always been one of leadership. The good guys. We can debate the merits of our global role as we mock Hillary’s fashion choices: all day, every day. But America has been a leader in the world. Kassem Eid is asking for America’s help. Obama did jack squat about Assad. So now Eid is begging Trump.
Donald Trump has been president all of three months, coming up on his fourth month. There will be plenty to criticize him for, I’m sure. The Syrian Civil War, at least right now, is not one area where Trump is to blame. So spare us all the sob stories about boo-hoo Obama and Trump is Hitler nonsense.
We’ll see what, if anything, Trump does next…
