As he prepares his departure after eight years “leading” the U.S. the Obama legacy in the Middle East is disastrous beyond what could have been imagined when he was elected in 2008.  Obama lacked the understanding and even more the guts to do what was needed to end what Bush/Cheney the Neocons and the Israelis all began after 9/11.   He in fact allowed himself to become the “Neocon Facilitator”.  And as he departs he has set the stage for much worse yet to come.

Iraq – US Troops, Drones, CIA, Contractors throughout the country.  It is de facto but not yet de jure divided.  No end in sight.

Afghanistan – US Troops, Drones, CIA, Contractors throughout the country.  The Afghan Taliban stronger than ever.  No end in sight.

Syria – Largely destroyed and divided by a war the U.S. and key allies Saudi Arabia, Israel, Turkey, and the Gulf States created.   Crisis looms with Russia allied with Syria, Lebanon, Iran and China.

Libya – Largely destroyed and divided by a war the U.S. using NATO created.

Egypt – Worse police state than ever.

Turkey – Worse police state than ever.

Yemen – Largely destroyed by US weapons and training provided to Saudis

Saudi Arabia – Worse police state than ever.  Super-armed by Obama more than any President before him.

Israel – Worse apartheid state than ever.  Super-armed by Obama more than any President before him.  Two-State Solution died and buried with totally ineffective and contradictory Obama policies.

Iran – Probably prevented further war escalation but by super-arming U.S.-allied countries has set the stage for even more dangerous times ahead.  More than Obama Iranian strength/preparations and American confusion/exhaustion explains events in recent years.

Overall:    Dead:  Millions.      Injured:  Millions More.       Refugees: Many more Millions.  Entire region is worse chaos, death, destruction, refugees, than ever in history.    A whole new future generation that hates the U.S. and its allies for what they have done — Israel, Saudi Arabia, and the Gulf Countries at the top of that list — is growing up embittered, impoverished, uneducated, that will fight for their lifetimes.
