While Obama is President, will Islam be able to develop successful Caliphate(s)?

4 Sep

Will Islam dominate the world as Allah edicts?

Since the Koran demands from it followers that they should make all people accept Allah, and that must do so at any cost, any action towards such eventuality would be determined by the Islamic-World.
It is important to realize that the Islamic world is not homogeneous, the one and a half billion Muslims are divided into two main sects, with numerous sub groups that will not be dealt with in this paper. The two major sects are: The Sunnis, with about 80% of Islam, and Shiite that are made up of the other 20%.
Starting with the Shiite, which includes Iran, the largest and most powerful nation, but one that is uniquely is not Arab. When the United States left Iraq before that Shiite nation was able to stabilize itself, and shore up the military’s middle section, the general staff, and the non-commissioned ranks were nearly set. The vacuum that the United States left before completely build that nation, and shore up the military gave openings to Iraq to exert its influence, and for Sunni groups based on al Qaeda, and other Saudi financed elements, to start carving Iraq and join some of it with Syria as a foundation for a new Sunni Caliphate.
The Shiite led by Iran, and falling under Russia’s sphere of influence, are engaged in the following activities: Support of Assad in Syria, direct its surrogates, Hamas and Hezbollah. Iran is also controlling a number of other Jihad groups in the region. With Iran’s nuclear ambitions, and with Russia technical support, its represents a serious threat to Sunni states in the region. The threat it so severe that the Saudis apparently gave Israel tacit approval to use its airspace on route to so away with Iran’s nuclear works.
While the Sunnis are establishing a Caliphate in Syria, Iran’s Shiite Caliphate will likely be in Tehran with the Ayatollah Ali Khamennei its leader.
Moving on to the Sunni elements which are large, powerful, but largely divided.
Let me start with the second largest Middle Eastern Sunni nation, Turkey, a sleeping giant! As one of the main players Turkey, after some years of leaning towards secular Islam, is currently under President Recept Tyyip Erdogan started to push the country towards becoming more orthodox Islamic country with an influence on the Islamic- World. Among other thing, Erdogan voiced the view that “there are no moderate Muslims.”
Another interesting movement from Turkey is a view about the world, particularly about Christianity. Turkey’ Minister of Environment and Urbanism, Erdogan Bayraktar, declared to the world that Muslims do not consider Christianity as a religion; he describes it as a culture.
“There are 2.5 billion Christians in the world,” Bayraktar said. “Christianity is no longer a religion. It’s a culture now. But that is not what a religion is like. A religion teaches; it is a form of life that gives one peace and happiness. That is what they want to turn [Islam] into as well.” In other words, he is telling his audience to be on guard against those who try to water down, or should we say moderate, the teachings of Islam. Those teachings, including, presumably, the teachings of jihad warfare against unbelievers and their subjugation under the rule of Islamic law.
Coming from an official of the ostensibly secular regime in Turkey, this is a noteworthy statement: he is essentially saying that Turkish secularism, which restricts key aspects of Islam, must be opposed.
The Turkish view is quite moderate compared to the major Sunni movement of the Middle East, the Islamic State [of] Iraq [&] Syria/Levant (ISIS/L). The Turkish would like to lead a Sunni movement that can grow with little conflict. Contrary to the Turkish view, ISIS/L seems to desire to acquire world leadership by force, or in any way necessary.
For the United States with allies to be able to withstand the various Islamic movement would require either an overwhelming for, including boots on the ground, or an extremely effective campaign of pitting Shiite against Sunni. Since the hatred one holds for the other, people skilled with negotiation, who understand the region, and Islam…

“Pathetic,” Putin says; and Obama’s Administration fits the bill:

5 Sep

President Obama giving an ultimatun on behalf of the United States, the redline!
President Obama now says that the redline was not his it was stated on behalf of the American people, on behalf the people of the world; what a cop-up, what a pathetic performance by an Administration.
Kerry says it is urgent that we move ASAP, President Obama says on the nexr days that we may need weeks so that he can get Congressional authorization.
The Syrian issue is a developing story, I’ll return to it soon, but for now, does anyone doubt Putin’s suggestion that President Obama is pathetic (as a President, of course?)

Will be continued:

Is Obama’s Syria posture ineptitude, fear of Islam, or betrayal?

31 Aug

Obama’s most recent approach to the Syrian situation is a demonstration of lacking any idea about the conduct of military conflicts. It could be that Obama’s Islamic exposure at his formative years makes him fear action againest Islam, or that he is simply unable to make hard decisions. His announcement of August 31, 2013 is tantamount to admitting moral defeat, and the lacking of leadership ability. This decision could cause carnage to a high level allies, and potentially members of the US military. The situation is alarming, let us all hope that does not develop to a major international conflict; since if it does, there is no question now that President Obama is not the man to lead this nation is either peace, or war.

Putting off action for weeks, just so he does not have to make harsh decision against a Muslim nation, is a cop-out. Syria already passed Obama’s redline, what is he waiting for?
Barak Hussein Obama proves again that he is not only America’s Commander in Chief (C.i.C.,) but that he is also America’s Capitulator in Chief (C.i.C.)
Telling Assad how far the United States will be willing to go, and giving the Syrian monster a few weeks to prepare, is tantamount to accepting [moral] defeat.

His present dealing with an international emergency caused him to pass George W. Bush, and Jimmy Carter.
For a warier to broadcast to the enemy that there “will not be boots on the ground,” or “a long term commitment,” is the epitome of stupidity. Giving the Syrians two weeks to prepare, and perhaps decide to use its chemical arsenal on US troops in the region, is outright dumb!
Further, more time for Assad’s chemicals can fall in the hands of terrorists.
Finally, the regime, an enemy of the United States, and the rebels, with elements of al Qaeda, is a rogue heterogeneous group who, if gained control of the chemicals would represent a danger to the whole “infidels (non-Muslim)” world, especially to the United States and its allies, Israel on top of the list.

Obama’s Administration = “Ineptness!” Our “Capitulator-in-Chief,”

A short list, a scorecard, if you will, should speak for itself:

Some positives:

  • Healthcare legislation
  • Saving the banks and automobile industry (more for “the rich!”)
  • “Iron shield” missile defense with Israel
  • Early improvement of the US image over that created by George W. Bush


Some Negatives:

  • Failed to repeal the Bush tax cuts for the rich, lost opportunity
  • Why Libya (where we are losing,) and not Syria (where we are, indeed, needed!) Why not Yemen, Somalia, etc.?
  • Debt Ceiling “compromise,” is Obama turning into the reverse Robin Hood: Take from the poor and give to the rich? Is he a GOP surrogate? Another lost opportunity.
  • Unemployment in US still over 9%.
  • Iran: Making the US C.i.C.* into a laughing-stock
  • Giving up Europe missile defense to please Russia, nothing in return
  • Afghanistan; per US military: Less safe today than last year
  • Iraq: Still “a mess,” and we are leaving with the most expensive embassy in the world, and with strong Iranian and Russian influences.
