Jeb Bush Accuses Obama Of ‘Getting Us Into A Quagmire’ In Middle East

Share

GOP presidential candidate Jeb Bush offered up his strategy for dealing with ISIS in the wake of Friday’s attacks in Paris — and declared, with no apparent sense of irony, that President Obama is creating a mess in the Middle East.

“What I would do is […] what I proposed at the Reagan Library two months ago — which is to defeat ISIS, and to defeat Assad, to bring stability because it’s in our national security interests to do it,” Bush said Monday morning on Fox & Friends. “That requires a no-fly zone, safe zones. It requires arming directly the Kurdish forces in Iraq. It means reengaging with the Sunni tribal leaders that were successful in fighting with us, side-by-side, with the surge.

“It means a strategy — we don’t have a strategy right now. This president is incrementally getting us into a quagmire, without having a strategy to defeat ISIS. This is a threat to Western civilization, a threat to our own country. We need to be merciless in this effort.”

Co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck also offered this question to Jeb — and like the former Florida governor, she apparently showed no sense of irony about the impact of the Iraq War: “Governor, can you reconcile this equation for me: less troops, no strategy, a dose of denial — and yet still offering to accept 10,000 Syrian refugees into our land right here?”

Bush’s response was that this was indeed a “bad formula” — that instead of taking in refugees here, the goal should be to create “safe zones” in the region itself so that people would not have to leave. He did say, however, that he would have “compassion for people that are not part of this fight,” by taking in Christian refugees.

And while calling for a no-fly zone, Bush also criticized the idea of the Obama administration talking to Russia (who are, of course, currently flying inside Syria). “Look, I think it’s always good to talk to people. But we need to be talking to them from a position of strength, not weakness. And that’s exactly where we are today as it relates to our role in the Middle East — a position of complete weakness.”

    Boy howdy! If only we could get another tough talking Bush in the WH.! I’m just sure we’d be out of this sticky little jam over there in no time flat! A President who would ignore all the small stuff, like George, Dick, and Rummy did back when, and just barge right in, guns ablazin’! First get that No-Fly Zone going. Forget about Russia’s backing of Assad, and all those Russian jets now flying around in Syria, blah, blah, blah! Don’t bother, “informing,” Putin. Show him what we’re going to do, by God! And ditto that for the for other 120 or so different armed factions now fighting for their share of the pie. Simply establish a, “safe zone,” for the Muslims, and bring the Christians here. Christ, this is easy, sitting here behind my computer screen! Okay fine. With Russia out of the way, and Assad gone, all that’s left to do is to just concentrate on hooking up with the, “friendly Sunnis,” as opposed to the bad, ISSL Sunnis. Who, by the way, equally despise the present Shia Gov. Jeb’s Brother George installed over in Bagdad. Oh and I almost forgot Iran, and their Shia Brothers coming up from Lebanon. Which are also fighting against the Islamic State terrorists, ISSL, aligned with Assad, and also probably very fond of Vladimir. But who cares about all that as long as we approach this from a position of strength? Strength is key. You know, like George, Dick, and Rummy always approached these things when they needed straightening out!

    Hasselbeck is to intellect as a teaspoon of feces is to a barrel of good wine.
    It’s utterly unsurprising that a “dumb as a sack of hammers” Fox barbie doll with the self-awareness and comprehension of a bowl of Jello isn’t capable of detecting Irony.

    The absolutely laughable thing, however, is that the dumbest Bush brother… after being caught out by stupid comments on Iraq time and time again, and no doubt coached to try to stop him eating his own foot… can still shove it in his own mouth up to the hip.

    You couldn’t make this stuff up.
    I’m sure the House of Cards guys are scratching their heads and wondering how reality overtook their most fantastical storylines… then doubled down. If they tried to write this stuff into the show, people would accuse them of being ridiculous.

    Surely the Republican performances from Bush 43 through to 2016 will be known in future annals of Political history as the stupidest decades ever documented in politics.

    Obama promised to get us out of all wars. Hows that working out? He has absolutely no strategy, only failures in all foreign policy. He has managed to get us into another cold war with Russia. He doesn’t seem to realize that there are evil people in the world. He doesn’t seem to understand that people cutting the heads off people is evil. He turns his head and goes to the golf course. He would rather worry about the weather then about hundreds of people being murdered by terrorist. ISIS is at war with civilization, and must be stopped. No more red lines.

He served as a medic. He is a Democrat. Its okay for us to disagree, that is what our form of government is all about.

Putin has taken action that has caused some problems with the world not just the US. Obama has the wisdom and leadership to not try and react to the actions of some foreign dictator.
      The US already has the biggest and best military the world has ever seen and does not have to react to anything Russia comes up with. Actually, Russia has got itself involved in fighting ISIS on our behave and also has a big problem with eastern Ukraine that is unsolvable as long as it supports the rebels.
      Sometimes the best thing to do is sit back and watch others get themselves involved. Lastly, we have less troops on he ground than we have had in 14 years and I call that a big success.

        As usual, with these hate mongers, he says Obama promised to get us out of all wars, but he doesn’t use bona fide quotes from reliable sources. What Obama actually said is he gave dates for draw-downs. An ideologue only hears that which reinforces his preconceived notions. A lot of things Obama wanted to do was thwarted by the tea nuts. If he had accomplished those things it would have made itsfun so angry or he would have denied they were accomplished.

Are you not aware, the more the bad news from the mid-east, the worse your candidacy will be? As awkward as it may sound, the mid-east plus the world is in a total mess without Saddam Hussein, as this was caused by your brother invading a foreign country without thinking first. Saddam made sure everyone in the mid-east was well disciplined. Who would have thought from the West (during the time of Saddam), would be killed in the middle of Paris, going out to enjoy after a hard week of working? Your brother has to be blamed for all these and not any other person. He really bungled it and no one knows how long the world will continue to suffer.

How has worked over the past 14 years? Maybe if the enemy could just put on a helmet with a big “I” on it, we would know who to shoot.

      I watched Morning Joe a little bit. This guy Scarborough is becoming totally useless & clueless day by day. He may thank Pres. Obama a lot of what he has been doing on ISIS. Pres. Obama is a very, very, very good thinker. ISIS has advanced a lot. What they are not able to do is pulling down the jets. But boots on the ground! whether a million or more, alot will be slaughtered. No more of seeing body bags, please. This can be avoided.

    Jeb is ignoring the facts. No, he’s been listening to much to his blundering brother.
    Isis and al-Qaida are Cultic group variations of Islam. These charismatic leaders crop up in these groups and are leading personal ideological vendetta’s which are against the traditional Islamic fault which are Holy ways against Muslims predominantly. Isis is not a new phenomena. They are the fifth generation of al-Qaida according to Malcolm Nance a terrorism expert on radical Islam.

    Al-Qaida is a global militant Islamist organization founded by Osama bin Laden, Abdullah Azzam, and several others,[ at some point between August 1988 and late 1989, with origins traceable to the Arab volunteers who fought against the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan in the 1980s. It operates as a network comprising both a multinational, stateless army and an Islamist, extremist, wahhabi jihadist group. When
    you think of this group as it relates to the United States, you need go no
    further than Afghanistan to understand why they exist and we, one of their targets.

    The US invasion of Iraq [the Bush administration] that kicked over the sectarian hornet’s nest in Iraq in the first place, with a completely unnecessary war that was bungled so badly that it created a Sunni power vacuum and created the conditions for
    the explosion and intensified the spread of Isis/Isil groups, along with the ‘Arab-Spring’ that allowed these terrorists to carve out strongholds [mini-states]
    and Jihad throughout the middle-east.

    He’s playing directly into the hands of Daesh. Daesh is an Apocalypse cult of Islam. They need Syria because it fulfills what they believes to be a prophecy in the Koran about the End Times. Christians are abjectly stupid about what’s in the Koran and will play DIRECTLY into their hands.

    Jeb isn’t the first to demand a war and he won’t be the last. A war will be EXTREMELY profitable for him tho. Your children will die for his demand for profit.

    And, this man expects to be elected to the most powerful office on Earth? Not a chance!

    Right, it was W. going into Iraq from a “position of strength” that got this whole mess started. Jeb’s 92 year old father has a better memory than Jeb or Fox News of what a dumb move his son made. Jeb and Fox News seem to have amnesia. They pretend all of our problems in the Middle East didn’t even exist until Predident Obama was elected.

    The bush family is always in favor of killings and war. If American insist that any who votes for war must take their wife and children into the war zone first. If they cannot win the war the rest of the American do not have to go. Would they be any war?

    I was going to say unbelievable, but then I had to remember who he is along with his entire party.

    Jeb still hasn’t figured out how to keep his mouth closed, or whether he should come in out of the rain or just stand in one place and get soaked. (A difficult choice for some it would appear).
    If you’re going to speak in public on an issue, one should first develop a pattern of clear thinking, and control that inner urge to blurt out anything that comes to mind, especially if the thought is utterly ridiculous. Jeb still hasn’t figured out that America’s democracy requires consent of all parties on a policy, and input from all officials on how to implement the plan. Unlike totalitarian regimes that allow for one person to make decisions in isolation, America works differently, Jeb.
    (A night course in American Government at a local Community College might suffice).
    What a pathetic portrait he presents — one that will be etched on the American consciousness for generations to come.

    If a “war” is needed, the USA should restart the draft so we all have some skin in the game. If the use of the draft is not used, then the use of troops is not important enough to start or continue an over seas adventure.

    Sorry Jeb. That won’t wash. Accept it and move on.
