Looking for the right hashtag on Iraq

Barack Obama has made an utter hash of foreign policy, so of course we can expect little more than a hashtag response to the problems his national security cluelessness has created. Experience teaches us that when hard problems arise, Obama dithers and goes for PR.
Unfortunately for him (and us, and the fate of Western Civilization), the Jihadists currently beheading members of the Iraqi military Obama abandoned don’t care a whit about what the New York Times editorial page intones or what is trending on Twitter. And the Iranians, who are rushing in to aid the Iraqi government we abandoned don’t pay a lot of attention to MSNBC.
It took five and a half years, but Obama’s incompetence has finally caught up with him, and with the voters who elected him president twice. And all of the rest of us, including the brave military and contractors who gave their lives in Iraq (and Afghanistan – but that’s another disaster).
The current foreign policy crises are different from domestic political squabbles. They involve our very survival and bad actors who can’t be BS’d by PR tomfoolery. Sooner or later even the low information voters are going to catch on.  We are in for a very bad two and half years ahead.
