Fletch Obama Is Hastening World War Three

It's been a big week for terrorist news. If you missed it, then you should know that a bomb was shipped from the country of Yemen disguised as an ordinary computer printer. It traveled on various flights before being picked up by intelligence. It contained enough explosive to bring down a plane. The Yemeni authorities have since let the woman suspect go - but it's ok because she was released only on condition she would appear when summoned for questioning (right....)
ANAA (Reuters) - Yemen freed on Sunday a female suspect detained in connection with explosive packages sent from Yemen and bound for the United States on condition that she appears when summoned for questioning, a relative said.
At around the same time, President Barrack Obama has relaxed laws forbidding child soldiers in Yemen, Chad, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, and the Sudan.
WASHINGTON (AP) — In a move criticized by human rights organizations, the Obama administration has decided to exempt Yemen and three other countries that use child soldiers from U.S. penalties under the 2008 Child Soldiers Prevention Act. In a memorandum to Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, President Barack Obama said he had determined that "it is in the national interest of the United States" to waive application of the law to Chad, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Sudan and Yemen. 
He instructed Clinton to submit the decision to the Congress with a written justification for the move. Obama's memo, released by the White House on Monday, did not include the justification. Administration officials have said, however, that cutting off military aid to those four countries as required by the law would do more harm than good. And they have said that continuing close cooperation with them can be a more effective way of changing their practices.

How's that? Cutting off military aid to those countries will "do more harm than good"? How does that work then? Oh that will sure convince them to "change their practices".  The US gives around $21 million in "humanitarian aid" to Yemen, or did until it was doubled to $42 million this year.

As Yemen faces multiple political and economic crises, President Barack Obama has announced an increase in U.S. humanitarian aid this year – more than doubling the sum to $42.5 million.
The announcement comes as the truce between the government and Houthi rebels in northern Yemen shows signs of fraying and as a secessionist revolt in the south of Yemen becomes more violent. In addition, al Qaeda has established a significant presence in more remote parts of the country, and the unrest in Somalia is a short distance across the Gulf of Aden.
I'm not saying it is Yemen itself that is sending bombs, or is OK with people ending bombs, but the country is a source of jihad attacks. Meanwhile, Obama is selling billions of dollars in arms to Arab states, while there is a virtual arms embargo on weapons to Israel.
WASHINGTON – Israel's government has kept its silence during a year-long ban on weapons sales imposed by the United States at the same time the administration has approved $10 billion in weapons sales to Arab states, a report said.
The Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs reported that the government of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has sought to conceal a virtual arms embargo by the administration of President Barack Obama.
Over the last year, the United States refused to approve any major Israeli weapons requests. Government sources asserted that the refusal represented a White House policy to link most arms sales to Israel to progress in the U.S. plan to establish a Palestinian state in the West Bank.
At the same time, Obama has approved more than $10 billion worth of arms sales to Arab League states, including Egypt, Kuwait, Jordan, Morocco, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.
 In a Jan. 27 report, the institute, regarded as close to the Defense Department and U.S. military, said the White House has blocked key weapons projects and upgrades for Israel. JINSA said Obama rejected Israel's request for AH-64D Apache Longbow helicopters while approving advanced F-16 multi-role fighters for Egypt.
“Indeed, Israel's request for six AH-64D Apache Longbow attack helicopters was blocked by the Obama Administration in June – the same time the Egyptian sale was approved,” the report said.
The administration's policy, the report said, has violated a pledge given more than 40 years ago to maintain Israel's military superiority over its Arab neighbors. JINSA said the erosion of Israel's qualitative edge began under the previous administration of President George Bush.
“How does Israel compete when the Obama administration announces 24 more F-16s for Egypt and 24 additional F-16s for Morocco,” the report said. “The concept of the Qualitative Military Edge failed to keep up with the changes in U.S. arms sales and training policy over the decades.”
What does the man think he is doing? Does he think he'll be able to hold back these Arab countries with the force of his presence? I'm afraid that the Arabs aren't as overcome by his cult of personality as gullible Americans are. Grow up Obama - these people don't respect you. If he thinks it's wise to withhold weapons from the only democracy in the Middle East and give aid to Arab countries there is something wrong with him - or else he knows exactly what he is doing and should be impeached. Meanwhile, Iran is in all likelihood developing nuclear weapons while America does nothing.

The man is an idiot, and is hastening World War III.
