The contrast between President Trump and President Obama could hardly be more stark.
One is firm, the other equivocated. One takes action, the other just talked. One is pro-America, the other was pro-globalism to the point of appearing at times to be anti-American. One respects our military and law enforcement personnel, the other denigrated them making the nation and the world a more dangerous place.
The current controversy over Syria is an excellent study in the differences between these two men. In making this comparison, Iran is necessarily brought into the mix along with the belligerent state of North Korea.
Fox News explains: “Susan Rice and other former Obama administration officials are taking heat for past claims that their 2013 Syria agreement successfully led to the Assad regime purging its entire chemical weapons stockpile — in the wake of this week’s alleged sarin gas attack. On Thursday, President Trump launched a targeted strike at a Syrian airfield in response to what he called a barbaric chemical attack on innocent civilians at the hand of Syrian President Bashar Assad.”
Once again we see the all too familiar Obama pattern of trying to create a reality in people’s minds that is at variance with conditions on the ground. In other words, either they lied or were incompetent. In any case, a problem was left over for the next administration to deal with.
Fox News continued: “‘There can be no dispute that Syria used banned chemical weapons, violated its obligations under the Chemical Weapons Convention and ignored the urging of the U.N. Security Council,’ Trump said.”
Thus we have the example of President Trump actually taking action where Mr. Obama did nothing but talk.
With Iran, we see the duplicity and guile of the Obama administration as an attempt was made to buy off Iran’s leaders. “This week, The Weekly Standard reported that key members of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, including its chairman, Sen. Bob Corker, were not told about wire payments to Iran, even after Obama said the United States had to send cash because such wire payments were not possible. Politico reported this week that the United States had been wiring cash to Iranian banks long before the cash payments were flown to Iran.”
So we have two different approaches to hostile regimes: Taking direct action against an aggressive nation as opposed to secretly wiring money to one in order to buy cooperation. As we said, the comparison between the two presidents could not be more dramatic.
No doubt North Korea now longs for the good old days of President Obama.
