Fellow letter-writer Egon says Nigel Pike is “a blatant liar for his claim that Obama was the originator of the situation facing the world today”. 

Pike is absolutely correct in making that statement. 

Gutless president Obama was all hot air – all noise and no action. Under his administration every crisis situation had the same outcome: the can was kicked down the road. As a result, no single person or nation had an ounce of respect for the United States. 

Egon mentions North Korea. Do you think for one moment that sweet talk will bend the ear of a leader who murders his own flesh and blood – even in foreign countries? Respect is gained through strength, not weakness.
