Obama is about to show Russia who is the BOSS… by killing Syrians thousands of miles from Ukraine and Crimea. (“US freezes diplomatic, consular relations with Syria; orders [non-governmental] US personnel to leave country.” — Grasswire – 18 March 2014)
THIS is the issue America – and our allies – must deal with: An American voter willing to put a person with such a naive worldview into the presidency. And since it looks like the next eight years will be a person with an even MORE naive worldview – Hillary – the Great Powers will just turn-away and ignore us. THIS IS A LOGICAL REACTION.
Since 1973, America has run away every time we have been faced with a strategic challenge. The bombing of the Marine barracks in Lebanon under Reagan was just one in a continuum. Bombing a couple of hundred Marines seems a tactical issue, but when we react by running away – as we did in Vietnam, did in Lebanon, have done in Iraq and are about to do in Afghanistan – these choices become strategic.
We have had incidents of mature behaviors, but overall, we have been proving our unwillingness to be serious in world affairs at an accelerating rate since the 1960s. If the globe begins to treat us as the crazy uncle in the attic – nodding their heads and smiling as we pontificate, knowing what we say and the threats we make are worthless – the world will become a far more dangerous place.
Why? BECAUSE of our choices in education, having the DUMBEST college students becoming teachers, PROTECTING these idiots by allowing government-sector unionization, and, when we decide a dumbed-down high school education is too much trouble, allowing the utter nonsense of the GED. And then letting these people, no matter how uneducated and ignorant… vote to decide the leader of the most powerful nation in history.
The idiocy of these choices is astounding.
Choices have consequences, whether we admit them or not. And the choices America has made since the 1960s – when Boomers began getting into government – have been infantile. And people are dying and losing their freedom – and American are losing the Liberty for which we have always fought and always been respected – BECAUSE of the choices of American voters.
The world that has trusted us to keep the peace for decades is learning we no longer can be trusted to do so. Given the nature of our voter franchise, our education system and our post-school education by the MSM, no intelligent person thinks this will change any time soon…
Democrats PRETEND to be the party of Peace – they are creating a world of war.
