America's Feckless Leader Apologizes AGAIN
A Commentary by J. D. Longstreet
The whole thing
smacks of Jimmy Carter and the US embassy take over in Tehran. I had
one flashback after the other as I watched the stories flooding out of
Libya. And why not? The causation is the same -- incompetence by the
then -- and current -- presidential administration of the United States.
looked and sounded like Jimmy Carter using some of the very same
phraseology Carter used when Ronald Reagan condemned Carter's handling
of the hostage crisis in Iran under his (Carter's) watch.
Those of us who raised cautions when the US was interfering in the uprisings in both Egypt and Libya can now feel justified, not that we didn't already. We warned then that we were only replacing one "America hating regime" with another "America hating regime." Turns out -- once again -- we were right!
called "common sense." There's no magic to it. It takes no degree in
geopolitics to be able to view the world in the cold, hard, light of
I'm told that an act of war is a state sponsored attack
against another sovereign state. We've been assured that neither of
the latest attacks on US territory, our embassies, qualify as acts of
war. How, exactly, do we know? I mean -- for sure, how do we know.
The utter naivete of the US State Department is legendary. It is immeasurable.
amateur hour at the White House and at the State Department. Neither
seems to understand that when you embrace your enemy there's a very good
chance that you will get a knife in the back.
Even as I write, reports are coming in of another assault on one of our embassies. This one in Yemen.
So, now we wait for our feckless President to apologize -- AGAIN!
Yes, I AM tired of osculating the derriere
of Muslims intent on our destruction! Especially when Obama gives the
back of his hand to Israel and kisses-up to the Muslims. It is DISGUSTING!
is worth noting that even though Obama cannot find the time to meet
with the Prime Minister of Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu, he, somehow, WILL
find time to meet with the Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood President. Obama
spurns the friendship of our only ally in the Middle East -- yet offers
the hand of welcome to the Muslims.
Tell me again why we are not
to assume Mr. Obama is a Muslim? Is Obama just a plain ole antisemite?
Or both? (If that is possible.)
Why is it the folks on the political left insist on making diplomacy so difficult? Why are they so apologetic for being a superpower? The US EARNED its place at the top and that is nothing to be ashamed of.
allow pipsqueak nations to "rub our noses in it." We allow avowed
enemies to invade and destroy our territory and murder out citizens and
then -- our leader publicly apologies for somebody, somewhere, doing
something that upset them and caused them to invade our territory and
murder our citizens. It makes no sense, whatsoever, to anybody but
We conservatives are often accused by the left of
"shooting from the hip." OK. Allow me to ask this: When someone is
shooting at YOU, is it not better to shoot from the hip than not shoot
Look. America's enemies are not afraid of us! They
have no respect for America. Why should they be? They can do whatever
they darn well please and they know our President will be slobbering
after them begging them for forgiveness and asking for their love. It
is a national embarrassment.
Look. I subscribe to the
philosophy, especially in foreign policy, that having the world love us
is of no consequence. What is important, however, is that the world
respect us, or fear us, OR BOTH! I could not care less whether they
Now that our feckless (Yeah, I'm using the word
again because I think it describes our President to a tee!) Leader has
made it plain he wants no truck with Israel, then Israel should accept
that until the US gets itself a new President, they (Israel) are indeed
on their own. They no longer have to feel compelled to kiss Obama's
ring. Now -- they can go ahead and nuke Iran's nuclear facilities to
kingdom come and be done with it. If the US gets dragged in, as it
surely will, TOUGH!
In my opinion, America's new
President needs to do three things ASAP. Re-assert America as the
biggest, baddest, dude on the block, purge the State Department of
leftist political hacks and replace them with conservative hard-nosed
realists, and purge The Pentagon of "politician soldiers" and replace
them with real warriors. We desperately need military brass who will
tell the President the way it is rather than the way they think the
President wants it to be.
America (and the free world) is in
desperate need of a new leader -- one with backbone. It should be clear
now that when America steps back -- all hell breaks loose on planet
It is time to set things aright. Americans need to give America and, indeed, the WORLD a break by voting Obama out of office in November.
