What Happens When We Elect A Fool

Russia is now leading the fight to save Western Civilization.  From October 1, 2015 Reuters:
Russian warplanes, in a second day of strikes, bombed a camp run by rebels trained by the CIA, the group's commander said, putting Moscow and Washington on opposing sides in a Middle East conflict for the first time since the Cold War.

The U.S. and Russian militaries were due to hold talks via video link to seek ways to keep their militaries apart as they wage parallel campaigns of air strikes in Syria, a U.S. defense official said.

Russian jets struck targets near the cities of Hama and Homs in western Syria on the second day of their air campaign.

Moscow said it had hit Islamic State positions, but the areas it struck are mostly held by a rival insurgent alliance, which unlike Islamic State is supported by U.S. allies including Arab states and Turkey.

I gotta disagree with the fool part. BO isn't a fool. He is accomplishing exactly what he set out to do. The people who voted for him are the fools

I heard a snippet of Ashton Carter's press briefing about that. When he said that the places Russia bombed weren't IS-controlled areas, he was stammering like either he hadn't expected the question, or was having a hard time forcing the lie out of his mouth.

I really doubt he and his staff are so incompetent that they weren't prepared for the question.

Yes indeed, he's a total fool. I disagree with MB above - while Obama did set out to reduce our world influence to that of Belgium, he did not intend to create this mess. He has to know that history will look at him harshly - his legacy will be that of a new cold war, with crucial American interests in Europe, the Middle East and Asia in worse shape than even Jimmy Carter left them.

Obama is a fool. Worse, as Richard Fernandez points out, he is an unteachable fool. The man is arrogant and detached from reality. Let's just hope our nation can survive the remaining 16 months without irreparable harm.
