Amongst billions of other Homo sapiens vying for their unequal share of available resources America and its people cannot grasp the day-to-day reality of living on this spinning sphere. Despite reams of historical as well as present day, media revealed substantiation Americans would rather believe its lying eyes then the palpable and factual.
Will America ever accept problematic behavioral dysfunction as a constant of the human condition? The transactional events today include armed and dangerous rival governments, some with WMD deliverables. Organized and disorganized crime is a lethal threat to the stability of world-wide lawfulness. A plethora of terrorist networks, gangs, and wannabe’s with murderous intentions threaten to decimate enlightened society; as if retrograded back into the “Dark Ages” the world is violently chaotic. But and despite all evidence to the contrary America’s leadership seems satisfied with third-party deliberation, the anecdotal prattle of UN ineffectiveness, and submission to Russian and Chinese hegemonic ambitions.
This nation’s commander in chief is in a mesmerizing state contemplating not a holistic military/diplomatic response to the violent aggression of Jihadist but instead striving to develop and enact a policy of doing nothing at all…or should I correct myself and say he is contemplating extending his strategy of too little-way too late.
I am repeatedly told that the American people are war weary, tired, and frustrated with its heretofore experience in the Middle East. This rather futile expression of defeatism is buttress by the fanciful expectation that some other nation or nations should lead and bear the financial burden. This discussion is going on while our armed forces are bombing the enemy and reinforcing its havens of war making capability. Once again the policy makers are much-more comfortable believing their lying eyes than the facts that reality transparently provides.
Here’s some reality, our Jihadist enemies are determined to kill and destroy our person and culture. There is no amount of understanding or concession that deters them from their beliefs or their mission. America must understand that peace is only an interlude and that even that interlude is impossible to experience unless we are not only constantly preparing for war but are willing to physical act to protect our interest.
Mr. Putin is seems strong and resolved because President Obama is weak and conflicted. Putin is infected with a nationalistically founded sense of revenge; he believes that Mother Russia was robbed of its former resources by a western conspiratorial sleight-of-hand. And Obama is wandering about in search of a 21st century statesman to confer and compromise.
Our counter party in Russia has declared that Russia is a strong nuclear armed nation and it will not be denied its manifest destiny. China desires control over the South China Sea…Obama is concern about the midterm elections. One can note the disparity of interest. Obama has focused on a strategy of lessening American influence whiles our counterparties are advantaging Obama’s perception of a world that exists only in the classroom of Harvard, Columbia, and Princeton.
