I've had a bad and growing feeling for a good 5-6 years now that there has been a loose, unofficial and nearly unspoken but very much acknowledged
coalition building against us
. Some nations we see and they are obvious. Some, I have a sense, we do not see and may be shocked deeply if
circumstances force everything to that kind of head at some point.
The world has been tolerant. Afghanistan was a gimmie and no one said a word. I honestly don't recall much of anyone, anywhere, raising a voice. If
they were against it, they knew the Eagle was out for blood and didn't want to draw it's eye. What a different world that was in many ways and so
recently, too. Iraq had more protests from around the world....and who can forget
? Cute one on that.....and notable how much of the world joined
loosely in the ridicule at that stage of things.
Now? Well, I fear we've taken everything one step beyond the world's tolerance and one play past prudent or intelligent and on more than one level.
The past two days events have shown we aren't just in an uncertain position but a precarious and possibly even dangerous one. I hope our leaders and
those around them do what's needed for the interests of the nation first, last and always.
