Journalist and author Melanie Phillips has sparked a storm after claiming that Barack Obama's second term will wreak havoc upon the world, specifically bringing World War Three "a lot closer".
Phillips, a long-time columnist for the Daily Mail, describes the president in her latest blog, as "a sulky narcissist with an unbroken history of involvement in thuggish, corrupt, far-left, black power, Jew-bashing, west-hating politics."
On the Middle East, Phillips writes that Obama's second term will see Iran "complete its infernal construction of a genocide bomb to use against the Jews and the west."
"World War Three has now come a lot closer."
Giving an explanation as to why the Republican Party's Mitt Romney lost, Phillips attributes a "culture war" that neither the GOP or the Tories in the UK understand is consuming the West.
Forebodingly, she concludes that "America now threatens to lead the west into a terrifying darkness."
Unsurprisingly, her comments have sparked debate on Twitter. Read a selection of reaction below.Suggest a correction
