Charles Krauthammer offered his take on the Regime’s pathetic failure to gather a broad, international coalition – unlike George W. Bush who was able to gather a coalition of “49 nations to provide material military support including troops, intelligence cooperation, material, logistics, ground facilities, and financial assistance” for the Iraq War in 2003.
“The reason it’s a coalition of the unwilling is because Obama is unwilling,” Dr. K said. “And everyone knows it. He telegraphed it in his speech, they all understand he’s ambivalent, They’ve all looked at what he did in Afghanistan and Libya, and they say that if the leader of this coalition is ambivalent and reluctant, why should we join?”

In his weekly address, Saturday, President Obama once again tried to separate himself from the “previous administration” by telling the American people he would avoid making “the mistakes of the past” and crowing that he is “leading the right way” so “more nations are joining our coalition.” He said this despite reports his counter-terrorism effort is receiving only tepid support from even our staunchest allies.Sep 14, 2014 3:36 PM PT
