We’ve got stories that Venezuela’s government is importing Cuban mercenaries to suppress revolution while the President of Ukraine has fled Kiev. Elsewhere, Syria is still a blood bath, the Taliban are poised to return to power in Afghanistan five minutes after we leave and the war clouds continue to grow in the Asia-Pacific theater.
Just when do we start to get some of that “smart diplomacy” that Obama promised?
Here’s the thing – if you ever wondered what would happen if American power were removed from the scene, here ya go. This is what a post-American world looks like. To put it bluntly, as the smoke cleared over the radioactive rubble of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the world became peaceful only in so far as America prevented war. Through nearly four years of global battle and at high cost in blood and treasure, the United States emerged in 1945 as both the arbiter of the world and its guarantor of peace. All the UN organizations; all the international talk-shops; all the treaties and discussions and agreements and alliances – all were completely pointless except that the United States stood behind them. No one on this earth then (or even now, actually) wanted to ever fight us, again, in a general war. Small wars on the side could be managed, but no one ever wanted to re-awaken the Sleeping Giant. To do so was national suicide. As long as our power was there as a standing threat, everything could be kept under control.
Take America out of the equation and very quickly everything would fall apart.
And so it has, because we are out of the equation. While our power is intact, the President of the United States refuses to use it and the world knows he will not. This is because Obama – that child of modern American indoctrination dressed up as education – believes absolutely that the problems the world has had since 1945 were caused by us, rather than kept from getting out of hand by us. Obama was told in school that if there was a war or oppression some where, then it was because the United States did it – he never learned that the war or oppression was kept from becoming completely horrific simply because we were there, and at will could utterly destroy whomever was making war or causing oppression. The world now knows that no matter what anyone does, Obama simply will not do anything about it – and so it just goes from bad to worse out there. Believe it or not, people can be downright evil – they don’t have to be forced to be evil by a clever CIA plot. I know this will simply stagger our liberals, but its just one of those hard facts of life.
The world is in more danger of a long, general war than at any time since the 1930’s. We’ll see how it comes out. Hopefully we can keep out of any war until at least January 20th, 2017 because more fearful than Obama refusing to use American power would be having that man use American power…it would be like giving a machine gun to a drunk. We’ll have to rebuild all this after Obama is gone – pray it doesn’t take another world war to do it.
