The President of the United States

1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW

Washington, DC 20500

Dear Mr. President,

I am appalled that you bowed to the King of Saudi Arabia! We are a sovereign nation and bow to no one! The following letter, which I received as an email, expresses my sentiments a lot better than I could. I don’t know who actually wrote it, but he ought to be given an award. You have NO idea what being an American is. You are tearing my country apart.

Dear Mr. President,

You don't speak for me.

When you go to Europe and say that Americans are "arrogant, dismissive and derisive" of our allies, you don't speak for me. When you pander to foreign leaders, presuming to speak on behalf of all Americans, apologizing for the actions of President Bush, you don't speak for me. When you desperately try to surrender to the French and the Germans, the Russians and the Saudis, and even our great friends in the U.K., just for the sake of maintaining your "Messiah" image, you don't speak for me.

You and your wife may not be proud of America, but I am, sir.

The Europeans seem to have forgotten who saved their collective asses in World War II, but I haven't. I haven't forgotten the tens of thousands of American fighting men who spilled their blood all across Europe to stop a murderous psychopath and his rampaging army. And I haven't forgotten the tens of thousands more who served in theater after that war, when the threat of Soviet advance through the Fulda Gap was ever present. I haven't forgotten, because I was there, for a time, anyway. I saw the obscenity of the Berlin Wall. I saw what happened to people who tried to escape communist Germany by climbing it, or trying to navigate the surrounding mine fields. I occasionally patrolled that border, mirroring Soviet or Czech patrols. And I remember watching on TV, crying as the wall was finally torn down.

I love Germany and England (France, not so much) and was ready to put my life on the line to defend them. So were the men I served with. Many Americans continue to serve across Europe in the military uniform of the United States, more willing, apparently, than many Europeans themselves, to preserve the freedom there that we have already paid for with our blood. I spent my money all over Europe, helping those economies flourish and grow, as did many other American servicemen and women who lived and served there. My only thanks was a very small paycheck, some wonderful memories and the knowledge that I was doing something worthwhile that I could be proud of for the rest of my life. I was, until today.

And then some pandering politician comes along and apologizes for all of that. You never served your country in military uniform, sir, so you wouldn't know how positively insulting that is. In fact, you've never done anything for this country but run for office. You won the election and still you're running a campaign instead of acting like the leader of our great nation. And I don't like it one bit.
I want peace. I want it for my family, for my friends and for my country. I've earned it and will continue to do so until the day I die. I want peace with Russia and China, even Iran and North Korea, if it were somehow possible. I want there to be a free exchange of ideas and trade goods and tourism between all of our nations.

But the difference between you and I, sir, is that I would never sell out my country to gain their applause. Maybe you think you're earning their respect and admiration by being weak and apologetic, but I know better. The only thing you did was weaken my country. And I won't forget it.

I am proud of my country and not even the President of the United States can take that away from me.

Sir, you must stop bankrupting my country and taking it down a road to Socialism. You and the Democrats are tearing this country apart.

Bravo, in every regard.

Now, I wonder if there's any chance of him actually reading this.

And, if so, if he'll actually take this letter into consideration while deciding his actions among foreign ministers, no matter what and how the speech-writers and P.R. managers want him to say and act - let alone those who shower him with past presidents.

It's not looking good, I'm afraid. Even if he were on 'our side', being a hero to 'We The People' hasn't been tolerated in Washington since JFK, and I'm sure his seemingly extreme faculties afford him this convenient forethought.

It's not him we have to convince. Although, he would most undoubtedly be helpful, if he survived (see above), it's others like us we must convince, if we are to have any chance at all of reacquiring our once great nation.

We must use the Internet while it's still basically free to plant a seed in everyone we know to do their own research. All it takes is a nudge in the right direction really. "Google it!" works quite well.

Still, it touched deeply, some still-human part of me.

Well done, Theo L. Peebles, whoever you are.
Well done indeed.

What causes you to believe the CIA and Mossad read this forum? Someone one here claimed to work for them?

What an arrogant letter ... one bows to royalty as a sign of respect not as a sign of weakness.
A leader of one country has protocol to follow when meeting, greeting or entertaining the leader or royalty of another country.

Since when is bad manners considered a good thing? I am not a fan of Obama but I guess the guy just can't do anything right. Damned if he does, damned if he doesn't.

If he had listened to his protocol officers (that's their job), he would have known that specifically in the case of Saudi Arabia, only subjects are allowed to bow to the King.

Whilst not wishing to diminish the US contribution to Western Europe during the cold war, I would respectfully point out that during its height the European allies provided 95% of the divisions, 85% of the tanks, 80% of the combat aircraft and 70% of the fighting ships stationed in & around Western Europe. By 1985 the Western Europeans had 3 million full time troops plus many more in reserve.

That's hardly a record not to be proud of & certainly isn't as lame a contribution as the email correspondent would have us believe, although certainly "every little helps".

And I certainly take offence to the suggestion that US casualties during WWII have somehow been forgotton. You only have to visit the US war cemetaries in France to see how lovingly their graves are tended and how welcoming the French people are to visiting US veterans & their families.

I find it outrageous that this email correspondent can use the deaths of his own countrymen to somehow advance an anti-Obama argument. Who the hell does he think he is ? Your boys & ours fought & died not only for freedom but for a different way of doing things altogether.

Indeed many of the British soldiers at wars end voted for the socialist Labour Party because they promised comprehensive education, a socialised health system & social security system which cared for them & theirs from cradle to grave. Poor Mr Churchill, the conservative leader who led our country during WWII was voted out of office in 1945. The people not only wanted the freedom & the liberties we enjoy today, they wanted something radically different.

So I don't think this correspondent has any right to second guess what our soldiers were fighting for or to drench himself in their blood to advance his own arguments against the current or any other US administration.

Because that's just disgusting.

The only way America can truly get back on feet is IF the Americans DENOUNCE MONEY, OUTLAW MONEY, ABOLISH MONEY, and implement the Venus Project.

ohh damn,the ol we saved you in WW2'd be speaking German if it wasn't for us! please,if anything it was the Russians who did the dirty work and took the largest percentage of the Germans in the east.I dont like this letter much,its rather elitist and sounds like blind nationalistic pride devoid of looking outside your own self made delusion box at the fact we are a global community where America *needs* to play ball with other countries if you want to survive in this global community.

You really believe that about President Obama???? I am a proud Americian US Army vet and work for the US Navy and I don't see it that way at all! Unfortunantly, I am sure he gets letters like this all the time. I think many people are uninformed due to wearing blinders. I hope Pres Obama read that letter.

I read this post before anybody even replied to it.

It pisses me off to no end. While this person is upset about Obama being a representative of America, I am upset this person presumes all Americans have to have the same feelings they do.

This letter is not only degrading to a person who has been President for a few months, but it is degrading to me as well.

I find this person to be a pompass ass, that has no capabilty of diplomatic discussion in a world that is teetering on the brink.

This is not world war 11, this is now, and it is time to step up to the plate and take action based on the situation in the world, as it is now.

I find this letter completely obnoxious, and this person does not represent my views, AS AN AMERICAN!

Although it really shouldn't by now, the idiocy of some people continue to surprise me.

You are SURPRISED that a CONSPIRACY BOARD has members that think the CIA and Mossad are reading it?

The reason people think that are because it happens to be true. The US government has admitted to it. (Though not specifically this board) Not only that, but there are sometimes indicators that the owners of these boards are complicit in this. What are those indicators? Certain things labeled "HOAX!" before there has actually been any proof one way or the other. Certain threads being shut down prematurely. Certain threads being deleted very, very, very quickly. Example: A thread isn't there, you hit "refresh", it's there, you click on it, and it's already been deleted. And it's never some outlandish thread, etc., but one that has a title that quickly catches your eye and makes you go "What the...?"

Lastly, if you DON'T believe that you are being constantly monitored, and take steps to censor yourself, you are being very, very foolish. There are ways to wake people up without being overtly hostile to government actions.

And BTW, NEVER leave important documents and contacts on a machine that is connected to the internet.
