Yeah. He is probably correct. But what he is not saying is equally important, if not more so. Obama is a joke and a perverted one at that. No world leader has any respect for him. He has burn3ed up all of his good will and political capital with "gay rights" and his stupid war against Libya. There is nowhere for him to go to regain credibility on the world stage. He wanted to kiss up to Mandela and benefit from being in his shadow. But I personally lobbied to prevent having Obama disturb the old soldier. Mandela loved Qaddafi. And I thought having Obama disturb him would kill him. So I spoke against that. Besides. Mandela had already shown his respect by granting an audience to Michelle without Barack. Obama was left out in the cold with nowhere to boost up his image.

Geopolitically the entire world is sick and tired of American Rambo-ism. John Kerry wanted to play cowboy in Syria the same way that Hitlery played Annie Oakley lesbian in Libya and Bush played Clint Eastwood in Iraq and Afghanistan. It would have given him another shot at becoming president. But that game is old and tired. These are the real reasons that Obama could not attack Syria. Plus, the British Parliament helped a lot and al-Qaida did the rest. Nobody wants al-Qaida in Syria. especially not the Egyptians. Yeah, believe it or not Egypt is still the center of the Arab world. Once Obama and gang alienated Egypt, their influence in the Middle East and Africa was over. They get nothing without Egypt's approval. Saudi Arabia does not count. For one thing Saudi Arabia is not on the African continent and not in the African union. Egypt has all of those advantages.

Notice how the CIA got caught in the middle in South Sudan. I think both sides were shooting at USA targets. It is because there has been a total loss of credibility all over Africa and Obama is too white to put Humpty Dumpty back together again.
