It’s clear that President Obama is the chief architect of his strategy and that he ignored the advice of knowledgeable people. It’s also clear to me that President Obama was and is assisted by an exceptional competent team of specialists, especially the military and the secret services, who could mostly handle the profoundly unrealistic objectives. Also it’s clear that the tireless efforts of his remarkable diplomatic team to try to implement his unrealistic policy is highly regarded for their efforts. Thanks to the efforts of those dedicated professionals, the White House is still in one peace and the US is safe … for now.
If there are lessons to be learned about the second World War, the most important one is the passive behavior of many governments during the rise of fascism and communism. This allowed evil in the form of Nazis to explode straight throughout Europe, Asia and Africa. The costs of this passivity was unprecedented high; sixty million people died, Europe was in ruins and a new and greater evil rose in the form of another evil, Stalin. Now we’ve a new evil, Islamic extremism and they announced to have this all again, only worse. They like to see that you are between those masses of bodies.
