On the world stage today we have two super powers, Russia and China. But what of the United States you may ask? Doesn’t the United States have the strongest military in the world? Yes, it does, on paper, but that does not make the United States a super power. Instead we have become the world’s greatest victim.
We can’t stop mean old Iran from getting a nuclear bomb, our economy has fewer people working now than it has had the last 70 years. Mean old North Korea has its missiles targeted at us. Our water is dirty. Our air is unbreathable. Our industry leaders are greedy and worthless. We have invited terrorists all over the world to blow us up as it is our fault they hate us. We have reset our relationships with the Arabs, and the Russians and they still want to kill us. This is Barrack Obama’s America, weak, faithless and indefensible. Oh, poor us. We are the cause of the worlds ills and because of that the United States will disarm and be everyone’s victim. Then our President, the man who should be the most powerful man in the world will apologized for our defending ourselves.
In order to be a true superpower, we would need a leader who believed in and smartly exercised both the current capability of the military and its deterrent threat. Our President believes in dismantling the military and leaving us open to an increasingly dangerous world. The proof is in his actions. By announcing to our enemies the Taliban just when we were leaving Afghanistan Barrack Obama removed any capability of a deterrent threat and gutted any possible current commitments. At that point he telegraphed to the world that he would not stick by his friends if it involved using military force. He announced to the world and to every terrorist that they had won. He has gone on to propose cuts to the military that would leave this country naked in the event of aggression. China and Russia have both proven they are capable of that aggression.
We would need a leader that was clearly capable of applying our economic strengths toward removing potential threats. Already with Iran he has shown that he is not willing to use sanctions to prevent them from getting a nuclear bomb. In the Ukraine he is offering an economic incentives to stave off a military coup. The net result of that will be to just give resources to the Russians, a reward for their putting in their own puppet government. His gutting of our capitalist economy has also dramatically weakened our standing in the world. His out of control debt has weakened the dollar to the point that Russia laughs at the thought of our applying economic pressure.
To be a super power, you have to understand how the world works. If you won’t admit that there are those bent on destroying you and that they are evil you will never confront them for what they are. Putin wants to reassemble Russia into the USSR and he is on his way. China is eyeing Japan with increasing hunger. When we had significant advantages in arms and we were clearly willing to launch nuclear weapons in order to defend Western Europe, Russia saw strength. China feared invading Japan. Now Putin sees Obama for what he is, a coward, willing to give away whole countries rather than to fight for freedom. China does not believe that Obama would honor our alliance with Japan.
The net result is that the United States is a has been. What might it has is squandered in the ideological pulp of the Obama administration. Our enemies are looking to carve us up and the policies of this administration will not stop them. Instead of putting his effort into spying on the Tea Party and investigating 350 million Americans perhaps Obama should start defending this country’s interests. It is too late to save the Ukraine and Crimea, Syria, Libya, and Egypt. Russia has those marbles. Maybe we can save ourselves, Japan and Western Europe, but not on the current course Obama is taking us on.
Perhaps the media, instead of quoting today’s administration propaganda could get on board and point out the truth of what is occurring in the world. When Russia knocks on their door it will be too late.
