The Paris Attack and the decline of the American Presidency?

In the worst demonstration of the warped violent minds of ISIS or ISIL, a group of more than 7 suicidal Islamic terrorists managed to kill 150+ people in Paris, France.

See: USA Today

The Islamic State or ISIS claimed responsibility Saturday for a "blessed battle" of revenge in the killing of at least 127 people in multiple terror attacks of shootings and explosions in Bataclan Theater, Paris, France. Most of the victims were listening to an American rock band Eagles of Death Metal when the blasts started. Nothing like it has happened in the history, post WW II, of France.

It seems strange that ISIS chose France instead of Russia which is quite active in Syria by its direct involvement,sending weapons, fighter bombers and advisors to prop up the regime of Assad. Stranger still is the actions of the American president,Obama, who just before the public attacks in France declared that ISIS has been controlled and diminished!

Yesterday, he appeared at a news conference later careful not to offend the perpetrators. To quote:

"(it was) attack on all humanity and the universal values we all was a heartbreaking situation"

but he said he did not want to speculate about who may be responsible for the tragedy.

Obama called Hollande to offer his condolences and to restate "the United States' steadfast, unwavering support for the people of France" whom he called "our oldest ally and friend." The leaders promised to work together to defeat the "scourge of terrorism."

This is not the first time Pres. Barack Obama of the USA seems out of place, remember the time he made a laughable suggestion that young Muslims should be provided with job training to prevent them from joining ISIS! Pres. Barack Obama will go down on history as soft on Islamic terrorism, perhaps he is a closet Muslim? He wanted all American troops out of the flashpoints in the Middle East but his hands has been forced by the swift advance and expansion of ISIS in the volatile region. Now he is sending military advisers to help allies.

We see that the US is in decline, due to softness of Pres Barack Obama towards Muslim terrorists. He appeared shocked that Russia became more directly active militarily in Syria.

We send our condolences to the relatives and friends of the victims of this cowardly attacks.
