I don't start wars...
I finish them.
This is a great philosophy, if the goal were winning wars. When the goal is to just bury your head in the sand, instead of fighting wars, it is a terrible idea. But, this tactic foolishly ignores the vital point that, in war, the enemy gets a vote.
"War is upon you, whether you would risk it or not." Aragorn to King Theoden in The Two Towers from The Lord of the Rings trilogy
I keep thinking about that quote because the king in that movie is closing his eyes to his enemies, just like Obama. While the king dithers, an evil army is building on his borders.
Even if Obama doesn't want to fight, war is still upon him.
President George W Bush boldly defined evil. He was called every name in the book by our liberal media.
Obama has also boldly defined evil - anyone who disagrees with him. That makes going to war and winning effectively much more difficult.
Pro-lifers - evil,
Republicans - terrorists,
People who would dare to want lower taxes - unpatriotic, domestic terrorists, have a bomb strapped to their chest, have a gun pointed at your head, arsonists,
People who oppose Obamacare - racist
I am not making this stuff up. Obama and currently employed democrats have said all of these things. You know that.
The bottom line is - Obama believes that America is evil. That is why he hesitates to go to war to fight and defeat real evil.
And, he has a lot of support in the academic and liberal communities. They all believe that America is evil. Bill Ayers, who used to be on the FBI's 10 most wanted list is a professor now and teaches young people to hate America. Ward Churchill, another professor, respected in professorial circles, believes that the 9/11 attacks were deserved.
I appreciate that Obama has come up with a strategy. I really do. But, is it too little too late? Or will this half-hearted attempt to thwart evil work?
I really don't know.
This is bad, people. We are in real trouble.
