Intended Unintended?

The Obama administration has again demonstrated its complete mastery of the art of foreign policy by the way in which they tasked Qatar to be the middle man in the brilliant scheme to arm the Syrian rebels without Obama’s fingerprints being on the venture. The administration has run into the same problem it seems to always run into, the bedeviling problem of unintended consequences. Qatar has quietly sent US arms, intended for the Syrian rebels determined by Obama as being more or less friendly, to al Qaeda and other radical Muslim jihadists. The administration, of course, has expressed outrage, but is it sincere outrage? Is the arming of al Qaeda truly an unintended consequence, or was that the intended consequence from the beginning? Is this a case of unintended intended or intended unintended?


Obama basks in compliments

As an unintended consequence

Sees arms and ammo given to wrong guys

But who says they’re unintended

When so easily pretended

And when found out can evince such great surprise

So when guns go to jihadis

Just perhaps it was the Mahdi’s

Guys Obama had in mind the whole darn while

From behind the man is leading

And it seems he is succeeding

And the unintended consequence his style

    A helpful discussion is worth comment. I think that you should create more on this particular area, it would not become a taboo area but normally people are insufficient to discuss on such issues. To the next. Cheers
