Los Chupacabras! Los Chupacabras!
Matthew 10:34Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.
Charles Krauthammer had a great op-ed on this stance of Obama's, which I have to agree with.
How does the guy who stapled the phrase "Hope and Change" stand idly by, when a nation that is the #1 fundraiser for terrorism, is on the verge of a very serious change?
We cant talk with President Mahmoud AAFIHDGHIGHEIH, so why would Obama stand idly by, HOPING for the best, when he could actively create CHANGE, without a major military confrontation?
The people of Iran have given us and the world, a reason to seek change, without military conflict. You would think the left wing of any country worldwide, would be happy about supporting such a circumstance. Unless of couse, they just talk to talk.
Here we have Iran, on the verge of change, and the 1 guy who claimed he would roll back the tides, is rolling up the recliner and watching it all go down on TV, HOPING for the best. Hope is great, dont get me wrong, but simply HOPING isnt enough. You have to engage to see to it that your HOPE is well placed. Otherwise, what good is HOPE?
Its 1979 all over again Jimmy. Will you make the same mistake twice???
Iraq, Afghanistan, Lebanon, freedom is on the march, yet the leader of the Free World, is totally silent and neutral.
Makes ya wonder, is Obama standing up for the ideals and values of the USA he so commonly throws out there in all his cute little speeches?
Americans, always with the extremes to everything. It's what makes your country great and also could be your down fall. Let's look at it from the stand point of this, Do you think its possible for a man to reserve judgment until all the facts are in? If I were in his position as well, I would also choose to be patient and cautious in what I say till the right moment. If you are hell bent on going to war with Iran, I say more power to you. It means more chances to make money for me. But if you would prefer to keep your men off the firing line then take a deep breath and step back from the situation. What do you lose by seeing if the Iranians are going to handle Iran? Is it so hard to believe that Iranians Might have a better shot at figuring out changes for themselves then some white boys from Kansas? Imagine if China came to Michigan and said they were going to impose communism for our own good?
Its also strange how American politics have changed in the last 70 years. The conservative party was always the Isolationist party; donít get involved in other peoples wars. Now it seems to have flip-flopped. Interesting to see I guess. You let your passions run wild.
