You have got to be kidding!!!!!

The “empty suit” we have for a President says “The NSA is vital to National Security”. The NSA will continue to monitor, but, the Telecommunications Companies will join in the effort to “curb abuses”. What is this man so afraid of? Why does he use the NSA to spy on our(what few we have left) allies? Could it be that he fears being upstaged by an ally taking an action that he refuses to? He even had the nerve to drag Paul Revere’s name into his shameful program.
Now, onto why I’m Here today.
Easing the sanctions on Iran is “now” probably the most disastrous foreign policy decision he has made. But, at least this will get the rest of his poor decisions and actions out of the light(perhaps, this is by design). The Iranian government has no fear of us. They have already tested our National and Military resolve in 1979 by seizing our Embassy and holding our people for 444 days. Then it was President Jimmy Carter, he tried only once militarily to rescue the hostages. He didn’t want to risk any “collateral damage” and used the wrong aircraft and put them in an untenable situation. But, with that half-hearted effort he could say “I tried”. Then he started negotiating with terrorists, a process that continues to this day. Now, President Obama thinks he and Secretary of State Kerry can negotiate with a corrupt and overbearing Regime(guess it takes one to know one). With a 6 month period to ensure that Iran is playing by the rules(they wanted)and then to negotiate a final solution.
Could you imagine a President in 1944 wanting to be “politically correct” and not wanting to cause any “collateral damage”? We were at war, and our Nation and Military took the fight to them with a “vengeance”. War is supposed to be Brutal, Ugly and Decisive. We do not declare “War” on anyone anymore, the new sanitized term is “A Use of Force Resolution”. Why is it we don’t declare “War” anymore? The answer is simple “money”. The Geneva Convention spells out the rules of War. Civilians are prohibited from participating, if they are caught(notice I did not say captured)on the Battlefield they are summarily executed. Go to Europe and ask any surviving Partisan Fighter. Another interesting fact, the pilots ferrying military aircraft in World War 2(men and women)were in uniform, even the Merchant Marine were uniformed. Now, we “capture” terrorists on the field of battle and give them protections under the Geneva Convention even though they wear no uniform(another requirement) and have actively participated in operations wounding or killing our military men and women and sabotage(planting roadside bombs). The current Administration has even tried some in the judicial system, where they were afforded Constitutional safeguards. Since the founding of the United Nations, we have not declared War, we have had Police Actions, Use of Force Resolutions and any other “politically correct” or “sanitized” term they could dream up. There are many civilians actively participating in Afghanistan as we speak and they are paid more than our Military personnel.
We abandoned Iraq because our President and his pompous Cabinet could not even negotiate a Status Of Forces Agreement(SOFA). The same fate awaits Afghanistan, we already have a withdrawal date. Disengaging from the enemy and pulling out of a fight before victory is achieved is an admission that your policy and resolve are weak. The word “negotiate” is starting to “tick” me off. This country wields great power(at least it used to), when you negotiate with any one you have just given up the upper hand. Basically, the current Administration’s Foreign Policy strategy is non-existent, and is only appeasing and emboldening our enemies. America will probably survive a continued bumbling foreign policy(or lack thereof). But, only if Iran doesn’t go nuclear, Egypt continues holding off the Muslim Brotherhood, Syria holds out against every terrorist group that has joined the fight and the rest of the Middle East doesn’t self destruct. And lets not forget about Africa. The Middle East might now have a different and better landscape now, if President Carter had acted with a stronger response demonstrating a stronger National resolve.
President Obama had his chance too. When the Iranian students were demonstrating and rioting our Government did nothing and stood by while they were crushed. Iran was weak(financially)and the regime could have been toppled(guess this was during the Arab Winter, and we were not available until spring). Then came Egypt, Mubarak was no saint, but he kept the Muslim Brotherhood at bay. Not to mention he was an ally of ours and a friend of Israel. Then came Libya, Who we had no quarrel with. Obama used our military might to bomb the country and topple Qaddafi. Then Low and Behold the Brotherhood showed up. This brought us to Benghazi, and the death of 4 Americans. The Syrian civil war was raging along splendidly, then Obama drew a red line in the sand. If Assad used chemical weapons, the U.S. would act. It was okay to shoot as many of them as possible, just don’t “gas” them. Chemical weapons were deployed, Obama threatened to act, but wanted approval from Congress, Obama drew his red line without the approval of Congress. The list of Foreign Policy failures continues and I am sure it will only get longer. Now, on to Senator John McCain, this dim wit says “I know who the good guys are”. News for you Senator,all of them are terrorists, they are there to get some experience and waiting for someone like you to give them some cool “toys”. One day I fear, in the near future our brave men and women in the military will have to face the same terrorists using our weapons and tactics(after all we are them training to fight like us).I can only hope that, that fight is on foreign soil and not here. Then you go and stick your nose in the affairs of the former U.S.S.R. Why is it that the politicians are so eager to meddle in other countries political processes, yet will use every Government agency here at home to terrorize or intimidate the good citizens of America? While you politicians in Washington were contemplating arming terrorist groups with fully automatic weapons. State and local politicians were seeking and passing laws restricting personal firearms and magazines of Law Abiding Citizens of America.
Another interesting fact, under the Geneva Convention, only “military ball”(full metal jacket) ammunition can be used on the battlefield. Why is it that our Federal Government bought up so much “hollow point” ammunition? Again I ask, What are these people afraid of? After all “hollow points” can not be used on the battlefield.
One last point, about the President being upstaged. It was Canada that got our people out of Iran, that were not taken hostage at the Embassy in Tehran in 1979. Shame on Jimmy Carter.
