America finds itself in what may be the worst global security situation since the prelude to World War II.

“When President Obama proclaims that he was elected to “end wars,” he failed to realize that there are only two ways by which that occurs – victory or defeat. You cannot “end a war” by unilateral declaration that you are quitting – that only tends to empower an adversary.”

But of course Obama failed to acknowledge – to the detriment of our security and perhaps the very existence of Israel – that the enemy has a vote.

“The truth is that a campaign promise ushered in the reconstitution and resurgence of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) or Daesh.”

And now we must deal with the consequences. Yet Obama cannot even describe this enemy accurately, and is currently sitting down with Iran, the number one state sponsor of terrorism (still is, even though he’s taken them off the list), to placate the mullahs with some sort “deal.”

And we all know how that ended up.
