Why Not Stick It To Uncle Sam?

America Is In Retreat, By Design

Charles Krauthammer - May 20th, 2010 - Investor's Business Daily

This is not just an America in decline. This is an America in retreat — accepting, ratifying and declaring its decline, and inviting rising powers to fill the vacuum.

Nor is this retreat by inadvertence. This is retreat by design and, indeed, on principle. It's the perfect fulfillment of Obama's adopted Third World narrative of American misdeeds, disrespect and domination from which he has come to redeem us and the world.

It is sad that so many talked about Obama as the "Manchurian Candidate" before his record was clear enough to support the accusation. Now that it is clear, it is hard to make that case as progressives can dismiss the accusation with the attitude that it is "old news" and "already disproved". Actually it was never disproved. It was simply not provable to those who give Obama every benefit of the doubt.

What else has our MSM done but overlook gaffe after gaffe and lie after lie. In every case Obama's naive efforts at foreign policy have been excused with the belief that Obama can do anything and we must not attack him for his highly moral view of the world in which America is the main evil force.

Obama and his followers here in America are about to see what evil is.

North Korea is openly attacking South Korea. Iran and Hezbollah are openly preparing a new offensive against Israel, using Russian missiles protecting the Iranian nuclear facilities with the approval of Obama. Chavez is making noises about invading his neighbors. Civil war is breaking out in Thailand. Second rate power after second rate power is flexing its muscle to invade other nations. No power in the world believes that America will do anything but cower and talk. Obama has made it clear that is his stance in the world.

If blood can run like rivers all over the world and Obama will do nothing, why not stick it to Uncle Sam? Appeasement always ends in war.
