I wish I could disagree with you on anything you said just to keep it interesting. But I canít. Itís all in my book, itís in history books we read in high school Ė and itís all self-evident.
A US President with a POLICY of not going to war under any circumstances is like a man bent over a shark-infested mote with a sign on his ass saying, ďKick me hard.Ē If the bad guys had known about Carterís no-war policy they would have kicked him hard. He would have taken us and the rest of the civilized world with him over the precipice...
You are a Kung Fu master. A man pulls a little girl off the street in front of your eyes, beats her, rapes her, kills her, dismembers the body and pins a note to her torso saying that he had a good time and he wants to do it again. Somewhere during all of this he tells you that itís none of our business because the girl is his daughter and if you interfere, your daughter will be next. If you leave him alone, he will leave you and your family alone.
At what point do you step in to stop him? Maybe the attacker is a Kung Fu master, too. Maybe he has a knife or a gun. Maybe he will be true to his word and leave your daughter alone if you stay out of his business. Do you weigh these considerations carefully before deciding what to do?
HELL NO! You intervene as soon as you see whatís happening. If he shows a weapon, you kill him.
For decades, the United States, with the most powerful military force on earth (second only to our media) has stood back and watched this happen again and again on a scale of millions. We didnít go into action until somebody did it to us. This too, is a part of our history.
Japanís Rape of Nankin. Isolated incident. Why should we go to war over a bean patch in China? Italyís invasion of Ethiopia. Whereís the threat to us? Germanís invasion of its neighbors. Thank God for Englandís Prime Minster Chamberlain. He gave us ďpeace in our time.Ē Japanís bombing of Pearl Harbor. Oh, shit!
Remember, there was one member of Congress who voted for ďpeaceĒ after Pearl Harbor. What would the world look like now if that person had been President in 1941? ĖJaper.
