“LEAD-FROM-BEHIND” STRATEGY EMBOLDENS TERROR GROUPS

(Jan. 8, 2015) — There will be a shift in Saudi Arabia’s foreign policy in 2015. Most likely their strategy will be similar to that which is outlined in the below-listed article. Once Saudi Arabia developed a close working partnership with the United States, both countries jointly shaped the Middle East into a relatively stable arena. Now the Middle East is the most volatile region in the world. The once-64-year, long-term partnership has been fractured by Obama’s intent to establish diplomatic relations with Iran, regardless of whether Iran will destabilize the Middle East region by developing nuclear weapons.
A destabilizing void has been created in the Middle East by Obama’s “lead-from-behind” Middle East foreign policy, which is coupled with his unilateral reduction in strength of the US Armed Forces to levels below those of World War II. Al Qaeda, ISIL, the Taliban, the Muslim Brotherhood, and Iran have become emboldened by Obama’s Middle East Policy and have rapidly recruited and grown their worldwide terrorist networks, achieving success in Libya, Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, Somalia, Lebanon, Yemen, and Mexico.
The wide-open southern border of the United States is being penetrated by terrorists along with illegal aliens; those terrorists are establishing their networks in the United States. Over the last six years, concerned Americans have demanded that the federal government secure the southern border to no avail; the current open border policy will eventually result in terrorist strikes in the Republic.
The Western nations have been at war with Islamic terrorism since 9/11, but the Obama administration by its actions and policies has refused to take the proper preventive actions to oppose the terrorist threats facing the nation. In 2014, Obama released 28 of the deadliest terrorist leaders from Guantanamo Bay, who will continue to prosecute terrorist attacks upon the homeland and US allies.
