Letter: Obama’s lack of foresight alarming

To the Editor:

President Obama doesn’t seem to realize that inaction is an action. His response to the various crises here and around the world is to go to fundraisers and make smart aleck speeches.

Besieged allies in Ukraine and Kurdistan have been denied the ammunition and logistical support they desperately need. Some 40,000 were put at risk of slaughter and a vital dam was lost when the Kurds ran out of ammunition. These problems have been clearly developing for months.

Obama’s incredible lack of foresight is alarming. It’s really risky to be a friend of the U.S. Obama’s excuse is that Americans are “war weary.” Well, face it, the war goes on. We were war weary in 1944, too. What will the world look like after 2 1/2 more years of Obama? Big wars come from ignoring little ones.
