Obama’s talk couldn’t conceal the fact that his presidency has taken directions that he never anticipated. In Iraq and Afghanistan he has managed to wind down inconclusive and seemingly interminable wars.
But in Syria he is being lured, willy-nilly, into a foreign policy trap, one counter to everything that he has preached over the past years but appears unable to resist.
The role of Turkey
May 11, when two car bombs killed at least 52 people and injured more than 140 in the border town of Reyhanli. Erdogan swiftly blamed Assad’s security forces for the attack, and although Turkish officials have offered no definitive evidence
The conclusion is widely shared among Turks, who cited it as one reason for their objections to Erdogan’s Syria policy. The 363,000 Syrian refugees on Turkish soil are another, with many Turks voicing sympathy for the displaced Syrians but saying there are scarce resources to deal with the influx.
Residents of a town near the border with Syria say tensions are rising.
Anyone who has spent more than ten minutes studying military history, force structures and capabilities, and strategy, tactics and doctrine knows that military intervention is never as easy as anticipated.
And you will see the exact role it will play, just like the 100% accuracy the May 15th Prophecy proclaimed regarding the Republican prophecy
1 - Fully 48 percent of voters in these Republican districts, when asked if they know which party controls Congress (which, you will recall, is enjoying record low public confidence these days), said "yes," and then erroneously replied that Republicans are in charge.
2 - Voters in competitive Republican districts have a dimmer view of the tea party movement than ever, with a -22 net favorability rating, down from -15 last October and -12 last summer.
3 - By a 34 point margin (64-30) voters in competitive GOP districts want their representative to "try and work with President Obama to address our country's problems" rather than "try to stop President Obama from advancing his agenda for the country."
