The Loss Of American Leadership and Respect

After perusing the news stories from various sources this last week, I’m left to ask these questions. Could it be possible that I was wrong? Could it be possible that this president is worse then Chamberlain and Woodrow Wilson and Carter all combined. The sheer idiocy spewing forth from the White House and their spokesman is a clear sign to our allies and enemies alike that the U.S. is now firmly in the camp of every thing we have stood against since our country’s founding.

Consider this from Joe Lieberman:

"Sen. Joe Lieberman slammed the Obama administration Sunday for stripping terms like "Islamic extremism" from a key national security document, calling the move dishonest, wrong-headed and disrespectful to the majority of Muslims who are not terrorists.

The Connecticut independent revealed that he wrote a letter Friday to top counterterrorism adviser John Brennan urging the administration to "identify accurately the ideological source" of the threat against the United States. He wrote that failing to identify "violent Islamist extremism" as the enemy is "offensive."
The letter was written following reports that the administration was removing religious references from the U.S. National Security Strategy -- the document that had described the "ideological conflict" of the early 21st century as "the struggle against militant Islamic radicalism."

Lieberman told "Fox News Sunday" this isn't the first time the Obama administration has tried to tiptoe around referring to Islam in its security documents and that it's time to "blow the whistle" on the trend.
"This is not honest and, frankly, I think it's hurtful in our relations with the Muslim world," Lieberman said. "We're not in a war against Islam. It's a group of Islamist extremists who have taken the Muslim religion and made it into a political ideology, and I think if we're not clear about that, we disrespect the overwhelming majority of Muslims who are not extremists."

What an astute statement! The fact that this president is so intent on “not insulting” the very people that mean to destroy everything we hold dear is to me an act of treason! You do not appease radical terrorists. You tell them you are going to eradicate them and then do it! You squash them like bugs! But not this bozo! In his eyes, he will find common ground with our enemies, the entire world and it’s allies be damned! Not surprising that he does indeed stand with his Muslim brothers. But he could at least stand with the moderates instead of aiding and abetting the radicals among them!

But it gets worse! As we all know, Obama is going to hold his “nuclear summit”.

Following from Reuters and CBS:
Not inevitable Iran gets bomb: Gates

Sunday, April 11, 2010; 10:52 AM
WASHINGTON (Reuters) -" Iran is not yet "nuclear capable" and the U.S. government has not concluded that it is inevitable that Tehran will get the bomb, Pentagon chief Robert Gates said in remarks aired on Sunday.
"It is our judgment ... they are not nuclear capable, not yet," Gates, the U.S. defense secretary, said on NBC's "Meet the Press."
Asked if the U.S. government had concluded this was inevitable, Gates said, "No. We have not ... drawn that conclusion at all, and in fact we are doing everything we can to try and keep Iran from developing nuclear weapons."
However, he added that "they (the Iranians) are continuing to make progress on these (nuclear) programs. It is going slower than they anticipated but they are moving in that direction

Iran still hasn't changed its tune on an aggressive nuclear program. As Elizabeth Palmer reports, U.S. and allies hope that Iran leaders will have second thoughts.
Iran President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad aimed words squarely at the U.S. recently while celebrating his country's nuclear program, sending a deliberately provocative message to the world. "

"(CBS) Just days before President Obama hosts a nuclear summit in Washington, Iran announced Friday that "its nuclear path is irreversible," a dramatic move, despite the prospect of tough new sanctions.

In a ceremony where a choir and musicians performed a specially written nuclear symphony, Iran recently unveiled its homemade nuclear technology, including a new centrifuge - five times faster than the current model. Iran insists it's all for peaceful purposes, but it could also take the country closer to making a bomb.

Celebrating Iran's nuclear program in such an elaborate way is of course a public spectacle for Iranians, but it's also a deliberately provocative message to the world, which President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad made crystal clear with words aimed squarely at the U.S., reports CBS News Correspondent Elizabeth Palmer.

"Anyone who thinks they can threaten Iranian resolve to carry on with our nuclear program," Ahmadinejad said, "is greatly mistaken."

Good god! Can you believe Robert Gates?! “We have not drawn the conclusion that Iran getting the bomb" is inevitable?! All the while Iran is spitting in our face and the world's with absolutely nothing except idle threats from the so called world community. So what do we do? Nothing! OOPS! Wrong on that one! We take Israel to task. The President wants to impose his peace plan on Israel, one that firmly puts the U.S on the side of the very people that want to not only wipe Israel off the face of the earth, but have sworn to destroy Western Civilization as we know it!

As if that isn’t bad enough, the Obama administration wants to “curb Israel’s nuclear program! Forget the fact that Israel is not and has not been the aggressor in the region and is protecting herself! What does Obama care about Israel? Not a damn thing! He can’t stop Iran from building their bomb! He sure as hell can’t stop N. Korea from being a nuclear aggressor! But he’ll give his best shot at hastening the destruction of Israel! Why is this so hard to figure out? Hell, all you have to do is listen to the utter disdain you can plainly hear in his voice whenever he speaks of Israel along with his outright open hostility towards her Prime Minister.

So, I ask this question. What in the hell is the Jewish population of our country thinking? 54% of Jews in this country approve of this administration and it’s handling of the Mideast? Are you all nuts? This president is stupidly (I’m sure he wouldn’t know any better anyway) enabling the possibility of a holocaust the likes of which will make WWII Germany look like choir boys! I don't say that just to vent! There is a country right next door that has promised to burn Israel to the ground, one that we cannot stop from obtaing nuclear weapons. Yet this president doesn’t care about anything other then his asinine agenda!

Of course, if you are an “ally” of our country, you would have to be thinking twice about the U.S. even remotely coming to your aid if there was a major attack, etc. This administration has made it abundantly clear that it hasn’t met a treaty that it can’t break and it sure as hell is not going to stand behind any ally that gets in the way of our march to Third World status, one that in a little over a year has destroyed every bit of respect and leadership this once great country was known and loved for! Add to that the hard core Marxist drift towards the exact Socialism that has destroyed many countries, look at Greece for example, and the hard tone towards free speech and it’s quite easy to see why we are now held in disdain throughout the world!

A good friend of mine here in Vegas is from the old Soviet Union. He was lucky to get out years ago and loves his new country dearly. When we talk about this, he always asks the same thing. “Can’t we as a country see what we are doing to ourselves? Can’t we learn from past history? Could it be that we as a country now do not believe in our own principles?

He asks this and states as follows. “I lived the horror in Russia. I’ve seen what Marxist Socialism can do to a people. I have seen it rob the will to succeed and in fact the will to live! When I lived there, the U.S. was the beacon of hope. Now, I fear that the “I wants” of our country have lost track of that.”

He went on to say that the leadership he is witnessing now is every bit as deplorable as where he came from. He sees the beginning of same lies, the same anti-free speech rhetoric and the same despite for free will now, in this country, as he did then. Funny, isn’t it? A lecture from someone from another country who loves our country more then her native born citizens! In all reality, it’s a harsh indictment on this Anti-American administration and it’s sheer ignorance of our basic principles.
