Are we really stronger?

So while the President was talking about how much stronger the US is now since he has been in office, this was happening;

"Iran says seizure of U.S. boats a lesson to 'troublemakers' in Congress"

And this;

"IRAN WARNS US OF WAR – Missiles Are Locked on US Aircraft Carrier USS Truman"

And for good measure;

"The Trouble With The US Bomber Overflight Against North Korea"

No matter how you chose to view Mr. Obama's administration, to the rest of the world he appears to be reluctant to take definitive action.  The headlines show that those same threats Mr. Obama feels have been contained are now testing the waters.  North Korea and Iran know this is an election year and are watching the chaos of the Republican nomination process with bemusement.  

Mr. Obama also claims that Daesh is much weaker than we think.  Perhaps, but he seems to have conveniently forgotten about these guys;

And despite sending 300 US troops to Cameroon, we still have not heard about the fate of the school girls kidnapped by Boko Haram.

The US appears more divisive to them than Mr. Obama's claims allege us to be.  Expect more aggressive actions as they continue to test US resolve.

UPDATE:  Iran releases U.S. Navy sailors held for 16 hours
