WHAT IN SAM HILL IS UP WITH "PRESIDENT" OBAMA?? He has just addressed the United Nations General Assembly with a speech full of apologies and, as he did during his campaign speech in Berlin, promised to clip America's wings, and this in front of an aaudience containing representatives of the world's worst tyrannies; ghastly regimes whose blood-stained leaders no doubt welcome the promised dimming of the light of Liberty and Freedom which beckons their benighted subjects. Two of those despots, Moammar Qaddaffi and Iran's Ahmadi-Nijad were there in person. But worse was to follow.
NEXT ON THE AGENDA, "President" Obama then chaired a meeting of the U.N. Security Council. He focused on eliminating nuclear weapons from the globe. The Security Council in the end passed a resolution to do just that. We are at a loss as to where to begin our reaction to this singularly stupid ploy, but we will take a shot at it.
We seem to remember aa few lines from Doctor Strangelove; from a speech by "President Merkin Muffley" to wit : "Try as we might, we will never be rid of The Bomb; because the knowledge of how to make it will always be with us" Truer words have never been spoken, and only a fool believes a world free of nuclear weapons will ever be possible (unless of course something even more powerful is invented ). Nations such as Iran and North Korea will simply tell the United Nations to go to hell, as indeed they already have. Obama's proposition is therefore STUPIDITY COMPOUNDED. And do you think, seriously, for one second that China and Russia are going to just surrender their nukes?? If so you are either extremely ignorant or you are a damn fool.
This is reminiscent of our grade-school days during the Cold War, when lots of tykes cutely suggested that instead of wars, nations ought to resolve disputes over a game of soccer or by having their two smartest people play a game of chess. Being rudely disabused of this notion is an important part of growing up. Apparently either our Chief Executive has never grown up OR he thinks we never did and is cynically manipulating us. If human nature were amenable to such solutions, there would never be armed conflict ever. It is, we hope, hardly necessary to elaborate on this point.
Another quote from Doctor Strangelove by the same character: "The behavior of nations has always been despicable. The larger nations have always acted like gangsters and the smaller nations have always acted like prostitutes. They have bribed and threatened and murdered and lied their way through history..." Indeed, and one must consider that nuclear weapons have very likely prevented another conflagration in Europe that catches across the globe as occurred twice in the first half of the last century. They are a powerful deterrent, and the only sure-fire way to stop a nation full of suicidal fanatics. Nuclear weapons are good stuff in the right hands.
AGAINST THE BACKDROP OF THESE MOST SERIOUS MATTERS, What is America talking about endlessly at this writing? McKenzie Phillip's sexual affair WITH HER OWN FATHER and there are a number of people who - if not outrightly approving - are advocting tolerance of intergenrational incest.
God help us. Seriously.
