SYRIA: Obama’s actions encourage terrorism

President Obama’s policy of leading from behind has resulted in America losing world influence and the world becoming a more dangerous place.

At least one dictator or some terrorists have become emboldened enough to use chemical weapons against their own civilians without fear of recourse from the U.S. or the rest of the world.

None of this should be a surprise.

Our president’s failure to respond to the terrorist attack against an American consulate in Benghazi that resulted in the deaths of our soldiers and an American ambassador invited more acts of terrorism.

Not fighting terrorism has diminished our world influence to the point that America no longer has the allies we need in a time of world crisis.
