Cowering in Fear

Superpower no more after less than five years of the most destructive presidency in modern times: Rather than vowing to defend our embassies against the Islamic terror threat The Great and Powerful Obama wants so hard to deny the existence of, he has chosen instead to shut them down:

WASHINGTON (AP) — The United States issued an extraordinary global travel warning to Americans Friday about the threat of an al-Qaida attack and closed down 21 embassies and consulates across the Muslim world for the weekend.

The alert was the first of its kind since an announcement preceding the tenth anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. This one comes with the scars still fresh from last year's deadly Sept. 11 attack on a U.S. diplomatic post in Benghazi, Libya, and with the Obama administration and Congress determined to prevent any similar breach of an American Embassy or consulate.

"There is a significant threat stream and we're reacting to it," said Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. He told ABC News in an interview to be aired Sunday that the threat was "more specific" than previous ones and the "intent is to attack Western, not just U.S. interests."
Unfortunately for General Dempsey, when you are a military leader during the regime of a leftist totalitarian administration, you are forced to be a stooge for their capitulation to Islamic terror. Hence the fact that he is being trotted out to telegraph the obvious weakness of the former most powerful nation on the face of the earth.

Time was when we would staunchly defend our interests overseas - we vigorously defended our position as leader of the free world and had no problem letting any rag-tag bunch of terrorist thugs know that fire would rain down on them from above should they decide engage in cowardly attacks on our sovereign territory. But first came James Earl Carter Jr. Then came William Jefferson "I did not have sex with that woman" Clinton. Now we have Barack Hussein "fundamental transformation" Obama who's "foreign policy" (such as it is) has fundamentally transformed our country into a cowering shell of it's former self overseas. Let's review for those folks who either are in total denial or simply choose to forget what happens with foreign policy and military affairs when we (they, not us) elect Democrats as president:

  • The Obama regime started with the worst secretary of state since Madeline Aldumb bringing a big red button to her slavish ass-kissing session with Vladimir Putin. That "reset" of U.S./Russian relations worked great as we all know with Putin giving us the finger over the Ed Snowden debacle. Now, while this administration is in the middle of a massive cover-up of the terror attack in Libya, we've decided to just wave the white flag early rather than keep our embassies open and defend them. 
  • Before this, GW Bush was forced into waging a war on terror after eight years of neglect of the terror threat by Slick Willie's administration. So GW started less than nine months into his first term having to fight two wars simultaneously while rebuilding the military from Slick's 40% cuts.
  • Likewise for Ronald Reagan who had to bring the military back from Carter's weakness, capitulation, hand-wringing and military cuts in the face of the hostage situation in Iran. 
  • Remember Vietnam, a war conceived by Democrats and run by Democrats that it took a Republican to get us out of after just over ten years and 58,000 of our brave soldiers lost?
These are just a few of the most prominent examples of what happens when you let Democrats run foreign policy. We become weak, we become a laughingstock, we cower, and citizens of the still-greatest country God gave man die and the hands of terrorists.
