This evening, Tuesday, September 10, 2013, President obama gave a televised speech, a portion of which may explain his disdain for having to put up with alternative views. One line, in particular, struck me:
“Our ideals and principles, as well as our national security, are at stake in Syria, along with our leadership of a world where we seek to ensure that the worst weapons will never be used.” (1)
Really? President obama thinks America leads the world? That his position makes him “Leader of the World?”
I’m sure the Chinese and Russians had a good laugh about that!
I believe America was, and still is, “The Leader of the FREE world,” as we work with, and protect, the few semi-free peoples of the world, like England, Australia, Canada, etc. (Semi-free because they have no right to firearms for self-protection).
America is not now, never has been, or made the ridiculous claim to be, the leader of the 180 or so countries run by dictators, monarchs, tyrants, communists or any of the other failed forms of government our enemies in the UN exist under.
It is not our business to rescue one dictator to benefit another. No matter who is harmed by our weapons or actions, they have a family living by savage rules that will forever hold a grudge against America and Americans.
The outrageous claim that He, The Leader of The World, can send missiles into another country on a limited basis, and that our involvement will remain limited because we say so first, is asinine and dangerously arrogant. Are we operating in a vacuum? Is there some guarantee that no one will respond against anyone, anywhere, anytime?
Planes flew into our buildings and we sure as hell responded! If someone started lobbing missiles into America because weapons we sold somewhere killed children somewhere, would we retaliate?
But boy-child President obama’s America can lob missiles and rain destruction down on another despots country. 100,000 deaths with conventional weapons have been ignored, but 1,400 have some red line on their method of death. obama gets to punish them! The Leader of The World. Maybe. He’s gonna think about it. He’ll get back to us, but for now, they exist solely at his whim. obama said so. The Leader has spoken!
If he were a real President, and truly believed what he says, as soon as this gassing took place he would have given this speech, but ended it with this line, “for these and other reasons, I have given the order to fire upon targets in Syria to ensure that they, and by extension everyone, understand the ramifications of using these banned weapons. Good night, God bless you all, and God bless the Unites States of America.”
The country would be split on his decision, but the world would know America had a real President.
