For months I have been highly sceptical of the real intentions of Barrack Obama’s militiary campaign against the Islamic State. Jihadwatch has revealed that in Syria, the United States is only bombing 16 targets a day, compared to Russia’s 1888. This begs the question; what is Obama really trying to achieve in the Middle East, and more generally throughout his foreign policy? It has certainly been misaimed and ill- directed, to say the least. In a near-future post, I will seek to answer this question, and in detail reflect upon my concerns surrounding Barrack Obama.
