The answer is unfortunately, yes. When we understand the principles and beliefs of this regime, we find the foreign policy has been quite consistent. That is not to say it has not run into bumps along the way. These have been caused not because of a change in policy, but because of the immaturity and intellectual insufficiency of its leader. He made the comment Libya should be attacked because of the atrocities being carried out against its citizens, but has never been concerned about actual killings and torture in Syria. This is inconsistent. He also thought if he practiced Spock like principles on Syria, they would be an obedient child when he said they should not use poison gas on their citizens because that would cross the red line. Like so many children of the Spock era, Syria knew this was a statement with no consequences attached. The rest of the world also knows these are meaningless statements, just like the children of the Spock parents knew they would never suffer any consequences.
Despite these idle promises of discipline, the foreign policy of the regime is consistent. The leader of the regime is a Marxist. He learned from Marx, his Grandfather, Frank Davis and his college professors that an imperialist nation is as evil as a capitalist. He was taught the United States is an imperialist nation and must be weakened. His economic policies, including the defunding of the military, and his decisions in foreign policy, such as unilaterally withdrawing our missile defense system in Eastern Europe, have been consistent with his Marxist beliefs. This is amplified by his apologizing for America and his bowing from the waste to foreign leaders.
As dangerous as these Marxist based policies are, his consistent decisions to aid and strengthen Jihadists greatly add to the danger. He began this dangerous policy when he publicly demonized the United States while he was in Egypt. His decisions since have included those that have consistently weakened and curtailed Israel while strengthening and emboldening Iran. He has enabled the Muslim Brotherhood to gain power throughout the Middle East. His manner of exiting Iraq has encouraged radicals within and outside its borders. His regime has never taken one effective step in curtailing Jihadists. This is not by chance but by plan.
Even though the leader of the regime in charge of our nation currently is immature and intellectually insufficient, he is consistent in his principles. He has others, namely Valerie Jarrett and David Axelrod, who have the same American damaging principles and are also able to mitigate the damage done by the leaders’ fallibilities.
