Barack Obama has no experience in anything, especially matters pertaining to the military. He would have pulled the US out of Iraq prematurely, in
essence, raising the white flag of defeat.
He badly misjudged the Georgian/Russian head-butting, and had no idea of any facet of that conflict.
He has already indicated a naivety toward the concept of statesmanship by stating he would sit down with abrasive America-haters abroad without any
LBJ, military genius he was, created the defeatist conditions in Viet Nam, personally approving bombing targets, tying the hands of the military with
asinine rules of engagement, prolonging the war, and thus the loss of thousands of lives through his wisdom. The President giving direct orders to a
B-52 tail gunner? Tens of thousands of American lives lost due to his inexperience.
Jimmy Carter, upon entering office gave all cowardly draft dodgers unconditional amnesty. He gave away the Panama canal. And when the Iranians took
over our embassy, holding our people hostage, he hid out in the White House. This tarnished the reputation of the US and indicated the US was nothing
more than a paper tiger.
The next Democrat President was Bill Clinton, who inherited a rolling economy due the the previous Republican "Contract with America." He
introduced into the military the "don't ask, don't tell" policy of allowing homosexuals to serve within the military. Signed the Brady Bill,
limiting handgun purchases. Clinton folks accessed FBI files on thousands of Americans. While in the White House, he allowed Monica Lewinsky to
confuse him to the point he wasn't sure if a "HUMMER" was a form of sex, a military vehicle, or both. In Mogadishu, he didn't allow any air
support or armor as it would appear too "war like" and it cost precious American military lives. Had Osama bin Laden in his sights twice, and
called off the carefully prepared strikes as he didn't want to "upset" anyone. When our embassies and forces were struck, he launched a cruise
missile strike against an aspirin factory, which we then paid to rebuild. He gutted our intelligence agencies, and we all know where that led.
Right now, the day after the election, Russia is putting on a full-court press, beating the rest of our enemies to the punch be threatening to nullify
our efforts to install a missile defense system in Poland and other countries.
Each one of these Presidents from ignorance and weakness cost unnecessary American lives. Each one placed our very national security at risk.
If I were in the military right now, I'd be very reluctant to serve as I would never know for sure when I might be abandoned, or compelled to wave
the white flag. Of all of Bush's failings, no one ever doubted his resolve to defend America.
As a serving member of the military, do you feel like whizzing on the fire, calling in the dogs, and declaring the hunt over?
Do you fear what Obama will do as Commander in Chief?
