U.S. Official Says: “If we were at War with Mexico, we’d close that border.”

Paris:Turkey snubs President Obama, calling out his blatant HYPOCRISY
President Obama does have a few ideas to stop ISIS that go beyond climate change. But apparently his influence in the world to direct strategy isn’t quite a grand as he’d imagined.

Check out how Turkey responded to Obama’s demands that they close its border with Syria to end the influx of new Islamic State fighters heading into Syria and Iraq.
Via The Daily Caller:
President Barack Obama wants Turkey to close its 60-mile-long border with Syria to end the influx of new Islamic State fighters pouring into Syria and Iraq.
If Turkey acquiesces to Obama’s demands, no entry points will remain between the two countries. The entire border is 550 miles long, The Wall Street Journal reports.

But a Turkish official quickly pointed out to The Wall Street Journal the irony in Washington’s call to close off the border, given the U.S. is completely unable to stop flows in and out of Mexico.

In response, a U.S. official said, “If we were at war with Mexico, we’d close that border.”

Of course
