Obama has left the world on edge. North Korea threatens nuclear attacks on the United States: Russia is growling, China is playing its usual stealth cards, and everyone is TRYING to ignore it, but, fact it: It’s not easy.
President Trump has taken a strong military stance once again for America, and in that respect, we remember Ronald Reagan and another former President who had a few words to say, about big…hands…I mean…sticks.
I found a few words from Teddy Roosevelt’s “Carry a big stick” speech.
Here it is:
IN 1914, Teddy Roosevelt published some thoughts on how America should react to the war going on in Europe: Germany had just invaded Belgian and they were overrun. The world watched Belgian then, as we watch the Middle East now.
Here are a few paragraphs that Teddy wrote from OUTLOOK,
September 23, 1913: “The World War: Its Tragedies and Its Lessons. “
Our first duty is to hold ourselves ready to do whatever the changing circumstances demand in order to protect our own interests in the present and in the future: although, for my own part, I desire to add to this statement the proviso that under no circumstances must we do anything dishonorable, especially toward unoffending weaker nations. Neutrality may be of prime necessity in order to preserve our own interests, to maintain peace in so much of the world as is not affected by the war, and to conserve our influence for helping toward the reestablishment of general peace when the time comes.
We can maintain our neutrality only by refusal to do anything to aid unoffending weak powers which are dragged into the gulf of bloodshed and misery through no fault of their own. Of course, it would be folly to jump into the gulf ourselves to no good purpose: and very probably nothing that we could have done would have helped Belgium. We have not the smallest responsibility for what has befallen her, and I am sure that the sympathy of this country for the suffering of the men, women, and children of Belgium is very real. (Nobody says: Syria.)
One of the main lessons to learn from this war is embodied in the homely proverb. “Speak softly and carry a big stick.”
A little good can come, (peace movements) but only on condition that nations remember that as yet arbitration treaties, neutrality treaties, treaties for the erection of independent tribunals, treaties of all kinds can do nothing to save a nation in great crises unless that nation is able to defend its own honor, its own vital interests.
Under existing conditions, universal and all-inclusive arbitration treaties have been utterly worthless, because where there is no power to compel nations to arbitrate, and where it is perfectly certain that some nations will pay no respect to such agreements unless they can be forced to do so, it is mere folly for others to trust to promises impossible of performance: and it is an act of positive bad faith to make these promise when it is certain that the nation making them would violate them.
That last paragraph reminds me of Obama’s deal with Iran.
President Trump is speaking loudly and trying to carry a big stick. So is Kim Jung Un. So is Vladimir Putin.
The only country who is speaking softly are the Chinese.
Somebody said on the radio last night that the United States attacked nations who do not have nuclear weapons. Iraq and Libya to name two.
And that is why other nations want them so badly, and why that little creep in North Korea is so scared.
Whatever…when it comes to N. Korea, I’m afraid it’s going to be ‘use a big stick’ and THEN speak softly.
And I’m not sure which leader will use it first. One thing for sure: they won’t be able to blame the next war on Julian Assange.
Here’s something I didn’t know until yesterday…
Did you know that well before the end of WWII, FDR issued a directive calling for our government to determine whether or not all the bombing we had done in the war had served any purpose? Basically, we bombed the hell out of Germany. We bombed 3.6 million dwelling in Germany alone, leaving 7.5 million people homeless. Like the Sherman scorched earth model of annihilate everything in your sight, it did win the war, but was it necessary?
At first they targeted German aircraft production. But…even though they destroyed the buildings, the Germans just moved the machines and kept on going. Same thing with other factories. They bombed the ball-bearing factories, but the Germans just moved the machines and kept on going. Same with bombing civilian centers, it just gave more resolve to the people.
The study concluded that the ONLY bombing attacks that proved truly effective were those that targeted oil. You just can’t synthesize oil that quickly. Germany was defeated by depriving the Nazi’s of oil, not by bombing its cities.
Now, fast forward to today…and the war in the Middle East. While all the other candidates are talking about putting boots on the ground, and bombing whole cities and camps, only Donald Trump had the right answer. Take out their oil fields.
President George W. Bush should have gotten the oil fields in Iraq. It was Bush’s biggest mistake. It’s now Obama’s mistake because he refuses to bomb the oil tankers that are keeping ISIS in billions of dollars to continue funding this global war that will never end, because he doesn’t want to “spoil” the environment.
But, he did bomb a few trucks carrying some oil we found out today.
Remember, this is a President who doesn’t give a damn about OUR environment, because most of the horrific fires we have been seeing destroying our beautiful forests and national parks in our country out West (not to mention whole neighborhoods) year after year, after year,…have been started mostly by Illegal’s. Notice, not much mention of that on the nightly news.
Oil is still the reason for most of this. The world runs on it, so Donald is right. Putin wants it, Iran wants it, the House of Saud, wants to keep the Kingdom on top.
And by the way, we have an endless supply of it right here in America. BUT OUR POLITICIANS WON’T TOUCH IT. Why? The fossil fuel theory is a myth…oil is a natural commodity of the earth, it’s everywhere. (Read Black Gold Stranglehold by Jerome R. Corsi and Craig R. Smith.)
And that is one of the reasons Donald Trump is being attacked by just about everybody in power.
BUT…the Rino’s continue to support their almost diabolical relationship with the Saudi Kings. Evidently they keep the world’s oil dealing in the dollar, and we fight their wars.(and promise never to compete with our own oil production) …but it’s getting old this FDR contract, isn’t it?
Donald would end the war much quicker than everybody else. He would bomb ISIS’s main money machine.
So, next time you hear all about the great bombing runs being done by France, England, and us, remember, they already know it’s meaningless. …unless of course the goal is to bring as many homeless Muslims into the West.
Then, it makes perfect sense.
Let’s think back: How did we get out of that messy depression that was prolonged by FDR and his New Deal spending? That’s right— we went to war!
Jeb Bush just said to the world, in response to the Paris terror attack, ” We should declare war!”
Well, gee…that’s a novel concept. We’re not at war yet? Tell that to the soldiers that are missing legs and arms.
When was the last time anybody declared war in the United States besides ISIS? The last time Congress declared war was 68 years ago.
The Western leaders take…”actions” now, because only Congress can declare war, and Congress doesn’t want to be put on the spot on that vote, due to the fact that it might hurt them at the voting booth, so they just let the Presidents do what they want, which is bomb any country he wants without Congress having to mess with it.
The world is sliding into WWIII, and Wall Street is excited…they see the writing on the wall, and they are looking for an out. You think the rich are rich now, wait until the globe goes to war.
Remember, President George W. Bush made a big spectacle out of his bombing of Iraq…”Shock and Awe” world…take notice…look how careful our American Presidents are when they bomb cities. (smile, applause.)
President George W. Bush made the biggest deal out of freeing Iraq from Saddam…as if after 9/11 that was our mission. I guess after that wonderful moment when the world witnessed some Iraq’s pulling down Saddam’s statue, Bush thought, “My work is done here.”
And yet, he knew we’d be there for…ever. George and all his cronies said as much.
George wasn’t much different from Bill Clinton, who just HAD to get involved in Kosovo. Bill killed thousands of innocents, and what was THAT about again, besides getting the headlines off Bill’s sexual orgies with Monica? Does anybody remember? The American people will never know. Our Presidents declare an enemy, and off we go.
The truth is, America and her “allies” have been over in the Middle East for a long time, long before 9/11, and while I don’t for a moment think that America had 9/11 coming, still…as backward and radical as those people are…still, we have killed thousands of innocents Muslims. Of course, they like to hide among the women and children, and the video below explains WHY that is.
Americans don’t hear the body count on the other side, and Nobody ever thinks about it. Idiots or not, they still love their own families. They are sick and twisted, but they have Allah on their side, and who do we have? God? The Bible?
Didn’t they get rid of that?
Not that we care much. They attacked us first: They STARTED the crusades.
Trump is right…we don’t win anymore. President George W. should have WON that war, but he didn’t. And Obama’s fights to LOSE it.
And so, Obama, feeling pity on the Muslims, withdraws, and then send arms to them, to take out Syria and what do they do?
They decided to take out Paris instead, because the French..are such an easy target.
At the G-20 this week, Obama came out sounding all blustery and gung-ho and he was going to GET those criminals that planned the terror attack in Paris…
Bill Clinton was going to get the men who bombed the Cole.
Obama was going to get those criminals (notice all terrorist are just mere criminals to Obama) who attacked our embassy at Benghazi.
Nobody Thinks that Obama just likes to come out and say big and bold masculine statements, that don’t mean fiddly squat.
I have not been paying attention to the Paris updates, but excuse me, didn’t most of those guys blow themselves up? That leaves maybe …one terrorist left…and a woman at that, for Obama to get. Will Hillary let him? And speaking of the huggermugger wonder, she declared in her debate yesterday that she protected New York from the terrorists because she helped bring back Wall Street.
And that’s why they give her millions of dollars, she did such a GREAT job at rebuilding downtown Manhattan. That sure did show those terrorist how tough she is.
Too bad she wasn’t protecting Manhattan BEFORE the attack. What was she doing? Playing around with her email?
Clinton responded that she was representing New York in the Senate when downtown Manhattan was attacked and noted that she helped the city’s financial hub rebuild. “That was good for New York and it was good for the economy and it was a way to rebuke the terrorists who had attacked our country,” she said, her voice rising.
We don’t know what’s going to happen with all this, but I have been saying for quite a while…we might not HAVE an election. I truly believe the rich that are in charge of this global economy would rather leave Obama in office than face a President Trump. They’d prefer Hillary, but nobody wants her. So………
Carpe Diem Muchachos!…and enjoy a sensible man while you can.
For those of us who have no clue what they go through every single day…..all we can do is thank GOD we have men and women who give their all for America.
God Bless them, and their families.
Suffice it to say, the world seems to be falling apart before our eyes, and America is at her weakest. I’m having a hard time watching the news lately with so few uplifting stories, how about you?
The Confederate states had a population of 5,440,467 whites and 3,521,111 slaves. A million of the white men served and 300,000 were killed.
The Union had a population of 18,936,579 and another 2,589,533 on the border states: 429,401 then slaves of whom over 100,000 served in the Union army. During the war, nearly a million immigrants added an additional 400,000 fighters to the Union.
Clearly the South was outnumbered.
The Union economy was much stronger: The Union had more factory production, of iron, coal, firearms production, wheat, corn, textiles, merchant ship wealth, farm acreage and livestock. The North ALSO had a Navy.
The South had…cotton.
Most wars are won and lost by one side running out of money. And the South had no gold or silver supplies, and was entirely dependent on its own paper money.
Some truths never change.
Today, we find out that the Clinton’s have given the new expanding Russia, the future control of the world’s uranium, which will go to Iran. Obama is flooding our country with illegal which weakens us even further. The politicians stopped taking about the debt because they don’t want us to know what’s coming.
The plutocracy that sits in Congress, does nothing as Obama takes dictatorial power.
And America…is broke: We can’t fight another war …Bush’s war was just too expensive.
And our leaders are beyond comprehension:
For example, when the U.S. invaded Iraq on March 19, 2003, the country’s government owed Washington approximately $4 billion dollars — partially leftover from America’s “loans” during the Iran-Iraq War.
The debt was forgiven post-“liberation,” part of a concerted push of then-governor of the war Paul Bremer. He argued it would help “boost” the fledgling free market.
Yeah, they have us all thinking about the “election.”
Anyway…once upon a time, we had noble leaders…and I was reading about one of them tonight: General Robert E. Lee:
From A History of the American People:
General Lee, the state’s most distinguished soldier, had been asked by Lincoln to become commander-in-chief of the Union forces. This was a wise choice and would have been a splendid appointment, for Lee was decent, honorable, and sensible as well as skillful. But Lee was a Virginian before anything else and he waited to see what Virginia did. When Virginia seceded, he reluctantly resigned his commission in the US Army, which he had served for thirty-two years. It seems to us quixotic but he felt he had no other options. He wrote to his sister in Baltimore and his brother in Washington DC:
“With all my devotion to the Union, and the feeling of loyalty and duty of an American citizen, I have not been able to make up my mind to raise my hand against my relatives, my children, my home.”..General Lee
How many of us are being asked to forget our traditions, our flag, our patriotism, our religion, our ancestors, our freedoms, and the very color of our own skin, in order to comply with the New World Order political correct FUBAR nation of Babylon chattering slaves that the elites have in mind for us?
And while our leaders are busy destroying America—- China, Russian, ISIS, are all building their armies.
And Obama plays basketball.
I ALWAYS suggest to everyone young and old, to listen to both sides and all angles of any situation, and here Alex Jones brings out a few points that we haven’t heard about the movie Sniper.
Alex talks about propaganda, and least he forgets, the United States Government has used movies to promote whatever war they were fighting since movies were invented. In WWII, all the movies were used to get the American people on board the effort of defeating Hitler and Japan.
One of the things I do agree with Alex is, is the obvious promoting of “hero’s” to fit a political cause. In the past proud tradition of the Navy Seals, WHATEVER they did during their service, they never talked about the rest of their lives. Not even to their wives.
To this day, my husband will tell me next to nothing about what he did serving in as a Navy Seal. And I don’t want to know.
Obama has changed all that: He made a point to make a big deal out of the raid on bin Laden, in order to give himself the credit. If he had been a wise and true commander, he would have simply announced that bin Laden was dead. End of story. Protect the identity of the men who were there. But no…we had to make a book, write a movie…glorify Obama’s role as Commander-in-Chief…and here’s where Alex Jones’ theory should be paid attention too.
Alex makes the point that these ‘hero’s’ are used a propaganda, and then killed. And that should remind you…that almost all of the Seals that took part in the bin Laden expedition were killed in a helicopter crash. Alex should have mentioned that one. If you read up on it, it seemed staged. Every parent of those Seals say so.
I was shocked to hear that another American killed Chris in the back. And he said, if I remember right, he did it for money. (Anybody got info on this?)
The point where Alex gets a bit …strange is when he talks about Chris enjoying killing.
It’s war Alex. If his job is to kill the enemy, and that’s what he was trained to do— If he sympathizes with the enemy, how is he going to do his job?
What Alex doesn’t realize is there is an innate love of country in military men, and the highest calling for men, is to be willing to sacrifice their lives for it.
If not for the men in the American Revolution, who pledged their lives and their fortunes to bring it about our home….America would not exist.
Nevertheless, to criticize Clint Eastwood for making a great movie?
On a good note: Love the new ‘newroom’ look, Alex.
Boy. Am I disappointed. Everyone is so impressed about Obama coming out last night. Sounding Presidential. Sounding tough. We are going to war—To kill…all those… Islamist Jihadists (Wait….they are not Islamists…no Islam is a peaceful religion…sorry.) Nobody seems to think it’s all the usual Obama big mouth bluster.
Come on. You really don’t buy that speech do you? Remember that “You will NOT cross the red line, and you’ll keep your doctor too!” moments?
“We will hunt down terrorists who threaten our country, wherever they are,” Mr. Obama said. “That means I will not hesitate to take action against ISIL in Syria, as well as Iraq. This is a core principle of my presidency: If you threaten America, you will find no safe haven.”
Core principle? Since when? How many men that attacked Benghazi have been brought to justice?
Never mind that Obama said pretty much the same thing about getting all the people who killed our men in Benghazi. Yes, “Make no mistake” he would get them. (at the 1.00 mark)
So, excuse me…to most Americans this was just a more FORCEFUL speech, a political speech, to please the Americans people who are scared, elections are coming.
And why should we believe anything he says?
Face it: Here’s what the government doesn’t WANT to tell you. All democratic Presidents downsize the military and put money into their social programs. Bill Clinton destroyed so much of the military that it took George W. Bush a while to get it back up. About 9 months if I remember correctly.
They WANT you to think our military is always right there…READY. But, I’m not buying it anymore. And you’d better believe that the other countries know we are at our weakest.
Why else to you think Putin is having so much fun?
We’re just not ready to launch much of anything. Why else does Obama keep saying over and over “Uh..Everybody else has to help out..uh.”
Obama has already delivered half our military hardware to the local police, the rest he left over there for his ISIL.
And guess what? We don’t manufacture anymore, remember? How much do you think those bombs costs in China?
There has been a dramatic reduction in the Department of Defense. With the advent of GWOT (Global War on Terrorism) it is pretty clear that the force structure is totally inadequate to handle another campaign.
For the surge of 2010 in Afghanistan, more than 60 percent of the force structure was contract labor. And never before have contractors held such key positions.
Have we all forgotten that we are basically bankrupt? What’s the debt level now?
Two years ago it was $17 trillion. Have you heard ANY politician mention it in the last two years?
After the cold war, the budgets were cut, and too many contractors were competing for an ever shrinking budget . The companies began to merge to keep afloat.
Here’s a rundown a CIA operative, Dr. John B. Alexander
The mergers included huge companies, as well as acquisition and divestment of subsidiaries. As examples, in 1994 and 1995 Lockheed Corporation merged with Martin Marietta. Northrop merged with Grumman. Boeing merged with McDonnell Douglas. Raytheon merged with E-Systems and acquired Hughes, which had already been bought by General Motors.
This all happened under Clinton.
Most Americans would have been happy for President George W. Bush to just go get bin Laden, but he decided to re-engineer the whole middle East.
Maybe he saw the bigger picture. Maybe he didn’t. Maybe it was all about the money.
But here we are, more vulnerable than ever before.
Our government spend billions and BILLIONS of our dollars on Homeland Security, and the NSA, and yet any fool jihadists with a nuke can walk into the country.
How in the HELL are we suppose to believe that they are protecting us?
How can we possibly believe anything any President tells us anymore?
In what world?
Until our borders are secure we are sitting ducks.
Tonight, when Obama was spitting out all that patriotic BS that you KNOW he hates at the end of his speech, I couldn’t help but think that on this 9/11, in Obama’s home town of Chicago, five firemen are sitting at home after being suspended for having the American Flag on their lockers.
They were ordered to take the flags down. They refused.
There is a Marine sitting in a jail in Mexico, and Obama won’t lift a finger for him.
All over this country veterans are dying, waiting to be seen by doctors…Obama only cares about the ones who make him look good.
And as if to add insult to every American on 9/11…Obama starts off by TELLING us that ISIS is not Islamic.
Well, they CALL themselves Islamic. They kill in the name of Allah. Just because Obama wants to make up his own definition of them, shows how insulting he can be.
And when you have the leader of your country, saying such idiotic things to the world, you have to know it’s not just us that is in trouble, it’s everybody else too.
Obama IS the most clueless and dangerous man to EVER hold that office.
So, Obama will ask for millions to bomb from Congress, and he will get it. Nobody will declare war (They never do anymore do they?) and the money will go down deep black holes, and end up somehow in the wrong hands, and then those wrong hands will kill millions with their…Allah intentions.
So, on this 9/11 day, I would personally like to send a message to Michelle Obama
“Michelle. For the FIRST time in my life, I am ashamed of my President.”
Okay. Maybe the second. (Bill Clinton was disgusting.)
We can only pray the good men and women who still make up much of this country, are watching out for us now…because we have a bigger problem.
And right about now, he’s on the 16th hole.
Remember that song? ( See Edwin Starr sing it at the end…cool song.)
I was thinking today, about how Ronald Reagan crushed Russia. We are told that, Ronald got together with world leaders, and managed to bankrupt the Bear. But, Russia did that to herself didn’t she? Ten long years of war in Afghanistan, and after that war, Russia was ripe to fall. Reagan saw his chance and took it.
America, has done much the same thing: Spent trillions in Afghanistan and Iraq, and Obama has now retreated. But, according to Secretary of Defense, Chuck Hagel, we have an even bigger problem now:
“They are as sophisticated and well-funded as any group that we have seen. They’re beyond just a terrorist group. This is beyond anything we’ve seen. We must prepare for everything.”–Hagel
So, I thought, in contemplation of the upcoming war with ISIS, we’d review the costs of wars and contemplate, our upcoming expenses:
These costs were based on the 2008 dollars, so add inflationary numbers to all:
War of 1812 (1812-1815) $1.177 billion: 2,260 battle deaths.
Mexican War (1846-1849) $1.801 billion: 1,733 battle deaths.
Civil War...Confederacy (1861-1865) $15.244billion: 94,000 battle deaths.
Civil War…Union (1861-1865) $45.199 billion: 140,414 battle deaths.
Spanish American War (1898-1899) $6.848 billion: 385 battle deaths.
World War I (1917-1918) $253 billion: 53,513 battle deaths.
World War II (1941-1945) $4.114 trillion: 292,131 battle deaths.
Korean War (1950-1953) $320 billion: 33,629 battle deaths.
Vietnam War (1965-1975) $686 billion: 47,393 battle deaths.
Persian Gulf War (1990-1991) $96 billion: 146 battle deaths.
Afghanistan War (2001-) $800 billion: 906 battle deaths.(could not find updated info)
Iraq War (2003-) $1.7 trillion, 3,489 battle deaths., (Now near 5,000)
And $4 trillion in interest alone.
The costs do not include veterans benefits, war debts, or assistance to our allies. Casualties do not include civilians, noncombat deaths, those wounded or missing in action.
The report concluded the United States gained little from the Iraq war while Iraq was traumatized by it. The war reinvigorated radical Islamist militants in the region, set back women’s rights, and weakened an already precarious healthcare system, the report said. Meanwhile, the $212 billion reconstruction effort was largely a failure with most of that money spent on security or lost to waste and fraud.
As we watch the new evil of ISIS threatening the U.S., many experts believe that we will be hit on our own soil, thanks to Obama’s open border policies.
So, how much will the NEXT US war cost us?
Nobody Knows. But we do know one thing:
It will cost more than all others combined.
(Sigh.) Obama helped Mohamed Morsi by sending him millions of dollars (some estimates 2 billion) and 20 advanced jets, while Morsi was saying things against the United States. He backed a Jew hating, Christian hating, American hating, horrible thug of a man, who forced a strict Islamic Constitution on his people, and I wish I could say that Nobody Remembers this happening before, but before Morsi, there was Ngo Dinh Diem.
You remember him don’t you? He was the little squirt of a guy that we backed in Vietnam, even after Eisenhower advisers called him ‘hopeless,’ and the French prime ministers Edgar Faure called him, “not only incapable, but mad.” That didn’t stop John F. Kennedy from claiming that Diem’s regime was “The cornerstone of the free world in Southeast Asia, the keystone to the arch, the finger in the dyke.’
Lyndon Johnson compared him to Churchill.
Nobody Notice:—Before the Vietnam War the United States had not been ‘attacked’ by the communists of North Vietnam, unlike on 9/11, or Pearl Harbor. But, our great leaders had to come up with something. Communism was coming after us OVER THERE if we didn’t go OVER THERE to stop it. Sound familiar? (The Jihadist will come over here if we don’t go over there to stop it. )
My neighbor might come OVER here and steal my lawn mower if I don’t go over to his house and nail his garage door shut.
(Nobody Thinks they must teach these political guys all the lines at conferences on World BS 101.)
Why did the democrats pick Diem? He was a devout Catholic who had seen years in exile in New Jersey. (Mohamed Morsi had been a professor in California!) South Vietnam was 95 percent Buddhist….and he was all about ruling, not as a democracy but as an autocratic dictator with his family and friends in control. Pretty much what the Muslim Brotherhood does. Rule by Theocratic Thugs.
Nhu, his brother became the head of the secret police. And his wife was a real peach. Madame Nhu abolished divorce and made adultery a crime. She banned contraceptives, beauty contest, and boxing matches. She closed Saigon’s nightclubs and ballrooms…in Saigon. Not that the place didn’t need a bit of cleaning up, but….let’s just say Morsi would have loved her.
In other words, Diem believed in divine rule, (like Morsi) and he was divine.
One CIA guy said Diem was…”Very prissy. Very authoritarian,. Rather pompous.”
And just like a good democrat, he held an election and claimed himself victory with 98 percent of the vote….(NO doubt he learned that in Jersey) Of course, it was a lie. He bought his own troops into Saigon to vote. He stuffed ballot boxes. We spend a million dollars a day propping up this guy.
Diem was one of the main reasons we ‘lost’ the war in Vietnam, and a whole generation of American man lost their lives. Not to mention, the millions that were killed by the communists afterwards.
One of the worst ideas Diem had, that drove his own people into the arms of the communists , was his “strategic hamlet” program. Peasants were forced from their native villages, to move into fortified villages that were often miles from their fields or markets. It was basically forced labor. The French had given the farmers free land, but then Diem made them pay for the land they already had. And just like Mohamed Morsi.. the things people needed— like hospitals, schools, social services, jobs… etc, he ignored. Many people joined the Viet Cong just to “get Diem.”
The people, like people everywhere, just wanted to be left alone.
Have you noticed the pattern?
Later on, Diem’s own cabinet, noticing the suffering of the people, offered modest reforms to him. He got so mad he closed newspapers, and arrested journalists— students, calling everyone who went against him a communist. (Morsi did this too. )
Diem was a ‘puppet who pulled his own strings.’ Sort of like Karsi, only he didn’t wear a stupid cape.
And while Diem was playing King, Kennedy, in direct violation of the Geneva agreement sent in our military. When, troops, advisers, and 47 helicopters were already going on bombing missions, Kennedy was asked in a news conference on January 15, 1962, if the United States were engaged in Vietnam.
His one world answer was “no.”
Then , one day, Diem’s men fired upon a Buddhist crowd killing a woman and 8 children. The Buddhists starting protesting. Madame Nhu blamed the Americans. No, Madame Nhu was not proud of her country..(.If only she could have talked to Michelle. )
On June 11, an old Buddhist protested Deim’s treatment of the Buddhists by setting himself on fire. Diem then declared martial law and sent his loyal forces to attack Buddhist temples in cities throughout the country. They arrested monks and nuns. Morsi has done the very same thing to the Christians in Egypt.
When the United States threatened to stop giving Deim and Nhu money, Nhu started working with the communists. Nhu’s own general worked with the United States and they …were …uh…killed. Nobody Knows who killed them, but the jungle is a good guess. ( Or…they’re drinking champagne back in New Jersey.)
And so, Obama gave Morsi billions, and Morsi did exactly what Ngo Dinh Diem did. He forgot the people, and started to repress them all. Now his men are killing Christians. And Obama is condemning, NOT the Muslim brotherhood, but the military that is killing the people KILLING Christians.
Go figure. .
And so, will Obama keep backing the Muslim Brotherhood, as he now backs Al-Qaeda in Syria? Will the poor people in Egypt who are just trying to get the Muslim Brotherhood out of their government get a fair support from OUR media?
Is that a stupid question or what?
Politicians. They get in power— whatever country they lead, and none of us have any idea the pressures they face, and the decisions they have to make in times of war.
We don’t know—so much is kept from us.
The night I laid the book down, I dreamt about going into an apartment, and right in the foyer, I saw a bulldog, panting–looking up at me helplessly, while he was holding up his front leg, which was missing the bottom half—-no paw, no foreleg…and blood from the bitten- off leg was dripping on the floor profusely. At his feet, was the head of another dog, which had been torn completely off. No body anywhere. The other dog had attacked him.
The bulldog looked up at me in complete shock, sadness and confusion. Ah —the pity. To much of the world, America IS a bulldog.
And that’s war. One side gets attacked, the other side fights back, and wins, but at a tremendous cost.
And so, our leaders have to take into account so many variables. How exactly do you fight a war or even stop it? While Germany was burning, Hitler sent out small boys and old men to fight, rather than give up. Japan, we see, did the same. Iran, would be no different.
The leaders of England just before bombing Dresden, had a meeting. Churchill and his generals, gave this rationalization on the price they had from the first World War, and their final decision in the bombing of innocent civilians:
The most deadly fact was not the numbers slaughtered but that all these millions were in the main young men in the prime of life who had not yet had time to marry and have families What had been destroyed was the future as well as the present. The ghastly logic withal this selective carnage of the trenches was the very worst injury which nations could inflict upon themselves and upon each other. Aerial bombardment of cities even into its most indiscriminate for, would be far less damaging. It would kill or maim a nearly equal proportion of each element of the populations the women equally with the men, the young equally with the old, the weak equally with the strong, the sick equally with the fit. From such a bloodletting there might be a recovery whereas to kill for the second time in a century the best of the young men in their prime but without issue would doom Western civilization. There would be no hope. All the combatant nations must decline.
So, while the feminists have tried to erase the men as being, not so important…, to lose your men, means that Western Civilization would disappear.
And who has the most men in the world? China. The Muslims are not far behind.
It does make you think.

I came across this in my reading today:
If you were to destroy your “enemy” how would you go about it? (With a little help from the inside!)
“If my enemy came out against us in the open country, destroy industrial establishments whenever we found them, break up the lines of interior commercial intercourse, close the coal mines, seize and if necessary destroy the manufactories and commerce of Philadelphia, and of other large cities within our reach.” –General “Stonewall” Jackson
He also said this:
“Always mystify, mislead, and surprise the enemy, if possible, and when you strike and over come him, never let up in the pursuit so long as your men have strength to follow: for an army routed, if hotly pursued, becomes panic striken and can then be destroyed by half their number. The other rule is, never fight against heavy odds. If by any possible maneuvering you can hurl your own force on only a part, and that the weakest part, of you enemy and crush it. Such tactics will win every time and a small army may thus destroy a large one in detail and repeated victory will make it invincible.”
Nobody Thinks the Chinese have studied our own history more than our own leaders have, and they are doing exactly as Sherman suggested, and without firing a shot.
What’s our weakest link?
—Wow…what a FUBAR of Muslim fanatical news we have coming at us this week.
That liberal rock star and Harvard dressing Ahmadinejad is coming to the United Nations, but not after ‘President’ Obama made his big speech about how right he was to “liberate” Libya first. Now that Congress has given him the unconstitutional right to go bomb anywhere he wants, he figures he can gloat at the United Nations about what a wonderful thing he has done, using the office of the Presidency to bomb Gaddafi, and then put our troops on the ground—when he said he wouldn’t.
It’s awfully nice to be a dictator.
Obama also met today with that Dracula looking, Afghanistan poop King-in-a-cape, Karzai, at the White House. Poor Karzai has lost his opium Kingpin brother and an ex-President all within the month: Both killed by the Taliban, or should I say…by the turban.
The former president of Afghanistan – Burhanuddin Rabbani, a major figure who was leading peace talks aimed at ending the war – was killed in his home Tuesday by a suicide attacker wearing an exploding turban.(I bet THAT was messy.)
Karzai didn’t look too pleased with Obama…so…is Obama giving back Afghanistan to his Muslim brotherhood? After all, we are getting out:
“Recent visits to Kabul by senior officials reflect growing eagerness to reduce its involvement in the country for both military and political reasons. But the …Russians are unlikely to leave until the military situation stabilize. There is no sign of that. The guerrillas, increasingly armed with American and other Western weapons, limit Soviet forces to the major cities and roads, The countryside belongs to them.”
That was an actual report from January, 1987. Substitute Americans for the Russians and it becomes quite clear. Russia and America: 0. Afghanistan: 10, minus half their population. But what the heck; Ever since Alexander the Great and his army marched through the Khyber Pass I think they are used to this whole “invasion” thing.
Losers get to go home now with missing arms, legs and genitals because they’ve already packed up the Hummers. Oh…but Obama did give a Congressional Metal to a guy who kept trying to save his buddies In Afghanistan because the MAIN command would not help them. They were busy watching porn probably…They all died of course, but just in time for Obama to score points with the military, by giving the metal to the guy that did try.
He needs their votes, just like the Jews. Maybe that’s why the plan is to make the army completely gay. The liberals will have another vote blog locked up— What?
So now, Obama has his own, Mogadishu. But no fear, nobody will criticized him for it. (but me)
Funny, when Bush was President, everything that happened on the field was his fault. Not Obama. He is wearing a golden bulletproof turban when it comes to being the Commander- in-Chief. Obama had this to say to Karzai:
“We both believe that despite this incident that we will not be deterred from creating a path whereby Afghans can live in freedom, safety, security and prosperity.”
(Nobody Says..make everyone turn in their turbans and burkas.)
Muslim FUBAR does not stop there: The biggest news is the Palestinians (who we have given over 4 billion dollars) have petitioned the United Nations for Nation status.
The Saudi’s this week gave the Palestinians $200 million dollars to “calm down” their insistence of statehood at the United Nations. The Saudi’s also gave $20 million dollars to the rebel Contras forces in Nicaragua.(in 1987) Evidently somebody here asked them too.
A few million here…a few million there. Gee.
The Saudi’s were put in power by the British, and our Presidents bow and kiss them. What’s up with that? Nobody Knows just WHY every single President, will NOT drill in America for our own oil. We are their puppets.
What ancient treaty did the United States make with the Saudi Kings that WE don’t know about? OR…who is among us that holds every single one of our Presidents hostage?
Everyone knows that the “alternatives” energies will take decades to develop. But every single one of our Presidents go with the ‘green’ crap. Bush had ethanol. Clinton is out spouting “green” energy, Obama can’t shut up about it. Mitt will be worse.
Nobody Thinks it’s all about the Saudi’s. BUT…one thing is sure: When your enemy comes to kill you, and hugs you…better look under the Saudi/Muslim/Taliban/ Hamas/ hood.
Burhanuddin Rabbani died when he hugged his assassin, who triggered the bomb, officials said.
Somebody needs to make the movie—Exploding Turbans! — Coming to YOUR Neighborhood soon!
Is Omar Sharif still alive? Can we get Barbara Streisand to play his Taliban wife?
Can we make it in 3-D?
