This is an outstanding, must-read article from the Guardian.

The Guardian reports that an unwavering focus on gun control in the wake of Wednesday’s shooting may leave the president in an uncomfortable and likely untenable position.

Confirmation that the California shooting is linked to Isis is a game-changer. It highlights that Obama’s policies have been ineffective and his approach to Isis has been too weak.

The Guardian analyzes the political winners and losers – the Republicans will want to make national security the presidential election priority and Clinton will want to be more hawkish and distanced from Obama.

The wild card of course is fear. Americans tend to react very strongly to terrorist risks. But history shows us that America is slow to anger but once bloodied, she is ready to deploy her full military & industrial capability.

To most international observers, Obama’s foreign policy has been a disaster from the beginning. Surely now Americans will not accept the American homeland at risk because of Obama’s dithering overseas?
