Islamic Power Struggle

Reader comment on item: Saudis Bristle at Obama's Outreach to Iran

Submitted by Mike Ramirez (United States), Dec 4, 2013 at 23:41

Saudi Arabia (Sunni) and Iran (Shia) have been in a power struggle for control of the Muslim world since the death of Muhammad in the year 632 and up to the present day. Meanwhile, Turkey's future goal is to unite all Muslims under the banner of the "revived Caliphate" for global dominance. Regardless of which country comes out ahead, all three are a threat to America's freedom including all other modern Western/secular countries.

The irony in all of this is that it appears our very own Administration is giving all three a helping hand in their "struggle for Islamic supremacy" efforts while, at the same time, weakening America by dismantling the strength of our military and lowering the morale of our troops. Looks like our nation has been sold out by the majority of those whom we elected to protect and ensure the preservation of our values and freedoms as provided by the United States Constitution and Bill of Rights. Those who are elected, 2014-2016, will either set the course for the survival of this nation or continue to assist in the demise of this great country. God Save America!
