Russia’s most recent blatant show of military aggression in Europe and it’s global repositioning of itself as the new bull-of-the-woods, replacing the United States, and the seemingly timid and relative token response of the U.S Administration has befuddled and deeply concerned many observers – for good reason. But what I believe to be most concerning is the mis-intupretation of Mr. Obama’s far less than vigorous response to not just Russia’s recent overt military invasion of the former Soviet satellite country of Ukraine, but its growing aggressive posture towards U. S’s once unchallenged dominance globally, as being anything but fearful of Russian President Putin, or being out played by him, but somewhat in philosophical concurrence that America’s global dominance should end. As disturbing it is to say about someone in the seat of the Presidency of the United States, but honestly what other logical explanation can there be?
Let’s first keep in mind that the orchestrated role of Russia being America’s arch nemesis is not new. A very good argument can be made that if not for the most opportuned transfers of American technology Russia, nor Communist China for that matter, would be even in the same area code as America in regards to technological or military dominance. One needs to look no further than as recent as the 1997 U.S House of Representatives Report on U.S. SUPERCOMPUTER EXPORT CONTROL POLICY and the 1999 U.S House of Representatives COX REPORT to understand that neither “former” Communist Russia nor Communist China just fell out of bed to become technological geniuses to challenge, if not over come America – they had help stamped by Uncle Sam. In most cases the generous hand was that of a jackass for a mascot.
But even if we were to lend a blind eye to the whispered remarks of Mr. Obama to, then Russian President, Dmitry Medvedev that may have in generations or so earlier been considered treasonous, or at least been seriously debated publicly in America, lets examine some of Mr. O’s more inexplicable military actions regarding Russia-U.S relations:
- The 2013 The START TREATY: That promises Russia the virtual unilateral dis-armament of the U.S, via Executive Orders.
- His Confusing Actions in the Mid-East & Latin America: That are turning once staunch allies and carefree zones over to Russia, and China.
- U.S State Secretary announces the end to the “Monroe Doctrine”. There by announcing that our enemies can now sit up camp in our backyard.
- The Administration looking to cancel the Cruise Missile Program by 2016 & Slash Military Forces to Pre-World War 2 Levels: While nations such as, Russia and Communist China are expanding their military spending like there’s someone they need to beat up – like…the U.S.
There are many things that a true leader of the most powerful nation could do such as, since we do have a greater abundance of natural gas than Russia, we could work to replace Russia as the main gas supplier to our Allies, just as FDR came to supply Great Briton against Nazi Germany’s blockade. Mr. O could approve the Keystone Pipeline to make us more energy rich and independent and greatly grow domestic employment. Mr. O could work to match Russia’s and Communist China’s military expansion and treat them more like Reagan did with Russia [unfriendlies] to remove all doubt that America and the United States of America is still the bull-of-the-woods. More importantly, Mr. O could put the nation on a true course to greatly reduce the government’s debt and become a export nation and solvent business destination, such as Germany. And since Mr. O is so fond of using Executive Orders to make law, he could do all of this with a stroke of his pen. But, then we would not be talking about Mr. Barack Hussein Obama, would we?
Some have claimed that America’s fall is predestined. Maybe so. If the American people chose it, so it will be so. But, no argument can be made that under this current regime the scales by which we as a nation have been sliding have been slapped with a drum of lard. The question is just how far will we fall before this regime is out of office and will there be any semblance of America to be recognizable or to be put back together in any relevant manner as a force for freedom? Will Americanism die without notice in this generation and buried in an unmarked grave for future historians to unearth to wonder how could it happen to America, as they have Ancient Babylon, Rome, and the Aztecs? Will the movie Obama 2016 go down as the most provocative and prophetic movie on a setting President?
Former U.S Ambassador to the U.N under the Reagan Administration, Jeane Kirkpatrick ironically posed the question at the 1984 Republican Convention, “What would become of Europe if the United States withdrew? What would become of Africa if Europe fell under Soviet domination? What would become of Europe if the Middle East came under Soviet control? What would become of Israel, if surrounded by Soviet client states? What would become of Asia if the Philippines or Japan fell under Soviet domination? What would become of Mexico if Central America became a Soviet satellite? What then could the United States do?” We may soon find out. Very soon.
What she didn’t contemplate too was a grossly ascending Red China along with Russia. Nor could she possibly imagine that it would be the U.S government itself bringing her nightmare to reality with the people of America sitting so silently as spectators seemingly hypnotized and paralyzed and the world stunned and saddened by a man who promised “fundamental change”. We may want to next time take more care in what we wish for, as well as be more vigilant in those who we grant such authority. The choice is ours.
