A More Violent World Is Obama’s Fault

The world has increasingly become a more dangerous place, which is unfortunate being that they haven’t begun construction of colonies on the moon.

Yet the Obama administration and the left insist that his foreign policy has been a success. By any measure, this is simply not true, but truth will never bar the way of bad policy. It’s good, because they say it is, and that’s that.

But now there is actual documented proof that the world is less peaceful today. The UK Telegraph yesterday wrote that, “The theory that human beings are evolving into more placid, cooperative creatures is undermined by research that suggests the world is considerably less peaceful than it was eight years ago.”

“Last year 180,000 people were killed in internal conflicts, a number 3.5 times higher than it was in 2010” and “death from terrorism has risen fivefold – killing more than 32,000 people in 2014,” writes Dr. David Hammond of the Institute for Economics and Peace.

The United Nations estimates that almost 1% of the world’s population is now refugees. That’s 60 million people displaced due to violence and “is the highest it has been since the Second World War…”

The Telegraph posted a table documenting certain “peace indicators.” Using 2008 as the starting point, they show a steady rise in violence and despair in every subsequent year through 2015. Violent demonstrations have risen, obviously refugees have dramatically increased as has the impact of terrorism.

“The global economic impact of military and security spending, interpersonal violence, civil conflict and terrorism in 2014 was $14.3 trillion or 13.4% of world GDP. This is equivalent to the combined economies of Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, Spain and the United Kingdom and represents an increase of 15.3% from 2008.”

Now you may be asking yourself – Gee – what happened in 2008? Was there some event that may at least be a contributor to this unfortunate lessening of world peace? Was there an election or something?

That’s right – Barack Obama was elected – the savior of the planet. Wasn’t he supposed to stop the seas from rising, make the world love us, ushering in a new era of peace and cooperation?

Well, according to this new data, he appears to be a miserable failure. We conservatives might say we told you so, but that would be wrong and petty.

You may say this is merely coincidence. Well, the Global Peace Index clearly shows, “escalating civil war and steep rises in terrorism in the Middle East have caused severe deteriorations in peace in the region.” And that just happens to be where this administration has concentrated its foreign policy efforts.

In 2014, Jennifer Rubin at the Washington Post wrote of the findings of a security panel. She quoted, “Former House Armed Services Committee Chairman Buck McKeon as saying, ‘It is the same conclusion many Americans have already reached: there is cost when America does not lead and there are consequences when America disengages. What the president fails to understand – which the report points out – is that a strong military underwrites all other tools our nation has for global influence.’”

Former Sen. Joe Lieberman said that, “Too often we have sent a message of uncertainty to our allies and enemies, making the former more anxious and the latter more ambitious.”

Rubin added that, “It is therefore a mistake to treat the Obama/Clinton/Kerry foreign policy debacle as a series of discrete errors. Rather, it is their entire worldview that has been flawed from the start. The chickens are now coming home to roost. To fix what is wrong will require new people, a new outlook and new resources. Those who counseled retreat, retrenchment and reduction in our armed forces should not be entrusted with fixing what they wrecked.”

So regardless of the lefts endorsement of and excuse making for the Obama administration, they are the major cause of world unrest. His pull out, runaway and lead from behind foreign policy has delivered us a far more dangerous world today.

  1. Call me wrong, call me petty, call me any label you want to throw at me – it doesn’t make me so. But – we TOLD you! Obama, unfortunately, does not consider himself a failure because he has succeeded in accomplishing the mission he was hired for. Our mistake {not mine} was believing he represented US – he never did, never in his whole sorry life and never will. He owns everything he’s done to harm us and our allies. Hopefully, this Day of Independence will remind us that the pendulum swings – if we just give it a little push.

    • What did you expect from a community organizer that never did a honest lick of work until his election to the Illinois statehouse.

      • Lets all agree to call him a community agitator,not an organizer. Fomenting the low info voter is what he and his cohorts do best.

  2. I knew from the first time he announced, that the USA was in for some very DEEP @&%₩. He is destroying this country and is extremely proud of it. The wookie isn’t much better, The AG is a laugh. Clinton and Kerry are dupes and don’t realize it. I didn’t drink his kool-aid like so many jack $/^s did for two elections

  3. If fox and any other news media would continually broadcast these numbers and information, maybe just maybe some of obama’s slaves would wake up and start fighting for America.

  4. “The world that we have made as a result of the level of thinking that we have done so far, has created problems we cannot solve at the level of thinking at which we created them.”

    You’re right, Marlene, many of us did tell anyone who would listen. While Barry does tell a lot of outright lies, he tells the truth more often than people realize. It’s just that he speaks a language they don’t understand. He speaks progressive. That means certain things are a given and will not vary or be deviated from…no matter what so he doesn’t have to say them. HIS people ‘hear’ them even unsaid.

    He is a one-world-gov’t globalist, a socialist of some sort (some mix of communist and fascist for now), and a community organizer. He said off prompter that he would “organize” the middle east in response to questions after ISIS had declared itself “ISIS”. Apparently he realized he was truthtelling so stopped before revealing WHAT he would “organize” it into. A lie he’s told is that he has no strategy in fighting them. I call a big BS! He HAS a strategy which advances his agenda but whatever it is, he can’t tell us all because once again it will be destructive to America and all of us and he isn’t certain we couldn’t throw a big money wrench into the works. He’ll do the big reveal when he’s sure, though, that we can’t stop him or reverse his “organizing”. Guaranteed, Israel will get royally screwed right before they are obliterated.

    Everything he’s done and all he’s still going to do is part of a plan,\; what we consider problems from incompetence are really features to advance the agenda more quickly. There is incompetence on a big scale but only because he was meant to take everything over, not operate it long term.

    He is a community organizer, perfectly qualified for the job he was given by his handlers when they foisted him on us. He only knows how to cause trouble, destroy, create conflict and tension…tear apart. Et voilà!

    He’s only incompetent at the job WE hired him to do, not the one HE INTENDED to do.

  5. Everything is going according to Obama’s plan.
    He is a member of the Muslim Brotherhood and ISIS supporter.
    All his actions make sense if evaluated against that premise.

  6. Like him or not, this never happened under former president G. Bush’s watch!!!! And, the Left loathed him so much that Obama had to take us out of Iraq, declaring we won. And, in reality, we lost. The United States was the only stabilizing force over there. We left and look what is happening with leadership, or lack of it, under Obama, H. Clinton and J. Kerry. Anyone, but our current administration, knows that if you talk and act weak, and, you are a world leader, you wouldn’t be one for long!!!!!! All this administrations accomplishments (?) have not put America or its citizens in a good position. How long does it take to prove your (lying) self?????
