It’s About Time
In my article, Another Poke in the Eye, I criticized President Obama for his appeasement of the tyrannical dictators of Russia, Iran, North Korea, and China. Obama talked tough but never acted. Sadly, the world knew it. Consider the following:
· Obama did nothing to stop Russia from invading Ukraine and forcibly annexing Crimea in 2014. That would be like Mexico invading America and stealing Texas! America had a duty to defend Crimea because of a 1994 arms reduction agreement. At that time, President Bill Clinton talked Ukraine into giving up its nuclear weapons by promising to defend Ukraine from Russian aggression. In 2016, President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton made a deal to sell 20% of America’s plutonium to Russia. That same year, Russia suspended an agreement with the U.S. to destroy stockpiles of weapon-grade uranium. It seems Russia is giving the finger to the entire world by stockpiling nuclear materials! How much do you think will be sold to unsavory buyers on the black market?
· Barack Obama has allowed Iran and North Korea to pursue their nuclear weapons ambitions too. He has given Iran billions of our tax dollars and the green light to develop nuclear weapons, despite direct threats to America and Israel! Obama has repeatedly turned a blind eye and deaf ear to North Korea’s test-firing of missiles and refusal to allow weapons inspections, in violation of a 1985 non-nuclear agreement.
· China is continuing a military build-up in the South China Sea near the Philippine Islands. Although Obama has expressed his disapproval, he has done nothing to discourage it. In fact, his inaction has emboldened China, which now has the means to block the shipping lanes and restrict international trade! What do you think that will do to our economy?
Obama was not the only person I criticized in Another Poke in the Eye. I expressed my concern with Donald Trump as well. I worried he would be another weak leader. I gladly admit I was wrong! With the recent offensives against ISIS and the Syrian government, and the strengthening of the U.S. military, President Trump is telling the entire world America is ready and willing to take care of business! It’s about time!
Please pray for our leaders and our country. May God bless you and the United States of America!
