I have a theory regarding all these wars Obama has gotten us involved with. Bush gave us Afghanistan and Iraq but Obama now has us in Libya, Syria, and Yemen. That’s in addition to Afghanistan and Iraq. So let me make this part clear before I detail my theory: Obama just cannot find a way to get out of the Bush wars. That event is beyond is ability. I believe he would like to get out but for reasons beyond his powers as the most incompetent leader in the world, he cannot.
With that said, my theory is predicated on that belief and so excludes those wars. For a tiny bit of background information, it is also important to remember that this administration fully supports the muslim news outlet, Al Jazeera. They have even encouraged Americans to watch it despite its anti-western reporting.
Take that and add the influence of Facebook which our president has utilized and we have seen every country in the Middle East experience a degree of protesting and even riots. That includes Saudi Arabia where a large amount of our oil is produced. Had Saudi Arabia fallen into the same mess Libya currently is, there can be no doubt gas at the pump would be close to $10 a gallon now.
That is a frustration for our president. That is where my theory comes in. I believe we are engaged in these pointless conflicts in an effort to encourage protesters. I believe the intent is to show that if they get the ball rolling, we will be there to help.
It is fortunate that so far Saudi Arabia has been able to quell the protest through bribery, media blackouts and arrests. That is, fortunate for us, not those arrested or our president. Remenber, our president told us he wants our gas prices to “necessarily sky rocket.”
