Has Obama's failure to support our allies in the Middle East meant the terrorists have won the war on terror?

Obama has failed to show support to Ben Ali in Tunisia and Mubarak in Egypt, which both were loyal allies and fell to Islamic terrorists.

Abdelaziz Bouteflika of Algeria, Ali Abdullah Saleh of Yemen, royal families of Bahrain and Saudi Arabia are now battling for their lives, and Obama seems to be completely silent, instead he should be pledging his unequivocal support to these allies so they can stop the Middle East becoming an Islamic Caliphate!!!!

    The U.S. military is already overwhelmed with a war in 2 different countries in the Middle East.

    With the Army Reserves 75% deployed, or on 18 month comp time from prior deployments, let alone how streched thin the Active military is, unless the U.S. government reinstates a draft there isn't any way Obama could send significant support even if he wanted to.

    No - this is precisely how the War on Terror is to be won. Al-Qaeda becomes useless if the Arab public sees there are better ways to bring about change than terrorism.

    Nope. When pretty much everyone stands up and tells their government it's time for a change, it's not terrorism but peaceful revolution.
