Evil has a friend…
Barack Obama blocks support to the Kurds to fight the Islamic State.
** It’s bad enough that he pulled US troops from Iraq.
** It’s bad enough he created the vacuum that allowed ISIS to flourish.
** It’s bad enough he is unable to comprehend true evil.
** It’s bad enough he lacks the will and courage to battle evil.
But now he won’t support the people who are battling ISIS on the ground.
Telegraph UK reported:
The United States has blocked attempts by its Middle East allies to fly heavy weapons directly to the Kurds fighting Islamic State jihadists in Iraq, The Telegraph has learnt.
Some of America’s closest allies say President Barack Obama and other Western leaders, including David Cameron, are failing to show strategic leadership over the world’s gravest security crisis for decades.
They now say they are willing to “go it alone” in supplying heavy weapons to the Kurds, even if means defying the Iraqi authorities and their American backers, who demand all weapons be channelled through Baghdad.
High level officials from Gulf and other states have told this newspaper that all attempts to persuade Mr Obama of the need to arm the Kurds directly as part of more vigorous plans to take on Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil) have failed. The Senate voted down one attempt by supporters of the Kurdish cause last month.
The officials say they are looking at new ways to take the fight to Isil without seeking US approval.
