Yes, the red line has been crossed
No way Jose, not our problem
I could give two ****'s about Obama's honor when it comes to matters of life and death of my children or my neighbor's children. The only honor I am concerned with is my honor. And my honor, or what people think of me, as important as it is to me personally, is not justification to take the lives of your children or the fruits of your labor.
I do believe that honor has it's place but the days of John Wayne bravado and chivalry have been replaced with logic, common sense and the dictates of reason. I mean, that old school swagger is great for selling manly cigarettes, but it has no place on the global war theater. Pride should never supersede intelligence.
Cooler heads always prevail.
I do miss the simpler times when men were gentlemen and honor was a sign of a "stand up" guy. I liked the days of our youth referring to the elders as "sir," or "ma'am." But fistfights have fallen by the wayside and replaced with gunfights. Bullets are replaced by bombs. Being the guy with the most puffed out chest at the lodge meeting is no longer worth the cost.
