Obama's Foreign Policy and the Future of the Middle East

Obama's Foreign Policy and the Future of the Middle East

A while back, the United States set out to reconfigure the Middle East. The result is that the region and our position in it are both in shambles. Much of what has happened seems irreversible.

"After all that we've had to overcome, our Congress should stop standing in the way of our country's success." —President Obama

The World Is A Safer Place Without Saddam

"In Washington the House passed a bill today to go forward with a lawsuit against President Obama. Who says Congress can't get anything done? They're suing the president." –Jimmy Kimmel 

Senate Denies Aid To Israel
In the end, the Senate couldn’t even agree to deliver emergency aid to one of the United States’ closest allies.
A last-ditch effort to deliver aid to Israel during its war with Hamas died on the Senate floor, as Republicans blocked the proposal over concerns that it would increase the debt.

"Supporters of former Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez have released a new font in the style of his handwriting. Although I'm surprised he wrote anything by hand since he was so used to dictating." –Seth Meyers

Bill Clinton, Gave A Speech The Day Before 9-11 
“I nearly got him. And I could have killed him, but I would have had to destroy a little town called Kandahar in Afghanistan and kill 300 innocent women and children, and then I would have been no better than him.

“And so I didn’t do it.”

Republican Shenanigans

"I have always been a huge fan of Sarah Palin. She's a strong leader with a proven history of selflessness. I mean, in the midst of her 2008 campaign, she took the time to help out a struggling senior with severely impaired judgment." –Stephen Colbert

Annie Gets Her Gun
Appearing on Fox News Hannity, frequent guest Ann Coulter told host Sean Hannity that she wished Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was “our president,” so he could deal with our border problems the way he deals with border issues in his own country.

"While they're out on vacation I'm going to have to make some tough choices" to address migrant crisis. - President Barack Obama

Rock The Voter News

"The FBI has captured a man accused of sending over 500 letters filled with white powder to President Obama. The FBI said he was a disillusioned middle-aged man who felt beaten down and powerless at work, and the guy who sent the letters was kind of a mess, too." –Seth Meyers

Trying to Kill The messengers?
An SBS News reporter and Al Jazeera English contributor was caught in the middle of direct gunfire Thursday near the Malaysian Airlines flight MH17 crash site.

The Australian news service said that journalist Nick Lazaredes is "lucky to be alive" Friday. Lazaredes told SBS Radio he was leaving the MH17 crash site when shooting broke out around him and his group.

Does it make Republicans more bummed when Americans get jobs or health insurance?- LOLGOP

Business/Tech News

"U.S. intelligence now says that the Malaysian flight was definitely taken down by Russian separatists. But those Russians, they stick with that Soviet propaganda sh*t. Putin said today 'no, it's because one of the passengers turned on their cell phones. Either that or Pussy Riot shot it down.'" –Bill Maher

Kerry Sure Has His Hands Full
 US Secretary of State John Kerry told Narendra Modi that India's refusal to ratify a key WTO trade deal sent the wrong message, as he met the country's new prime minister for the first time on Friday.
