Contrary to inferences that I am anti-American let me say that nothing is further from the truth. I am very much pro the America that existed before Obama and his fellow progressives began to dismantle it. As for American performance in the ME , how can he expect the best from his diplomats and armed service after his massive act of treachery in the Benghazi episode[to mention just one] ? Even America’s staunchest supports have seen through him as shown over Syria where he has just one country supporting him. God Bless America.
