…. They were the foundation of his foreign policy against communism and “the evil empire”— the
Soviet Union. Enduring words that dismantled tyrannical nations, yet those words would amount to meaningless rhetoric and vacuous platitudes if Reagan didn’t back them up with a credible threat of punishment to those nations who would threaten
America and her national interests.
In Oct. 1986, at the Reykjavik nuclear-arms-control summit in Iceland, Reagan backed up those words when nuclear non-proliferation talks broke down with Soviet premier, Mikhail Gorbachev in Iceland and at Geneva the year before because the Soviets insisted that we stop developing SDI—Strategic Defense Initiative. Reagan considered SDI, or the ability to develop a missile defense system where a defensive rocket is used to shoot down a hostile rocket in mid-air, to be non-negotiable. Rather than jeopardize
America’s right to self defense, Reagan walked out of the talks.
As the state-run media praised Obama’s tepid remarks on the Iranian election as designed not to anger the mullahs in June, 2009, in 1985-87
America’s state-run media howled that Reagan actions would anger the Soviets and cause a greater escalation of nuclear weapons. On the contrary, history has proven Reagan right and the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty was signed between Reagan and Gorbachev in
December 8, 1987.
The great Spanish philosopher Santayana in his book, “The Life of Reason,” famously said, Those who forget history are condemned to repeat it. The Soviet Empire began to crumble 20 years ago under the strong, moral, unyielding leadership of Reagan, Margaret Thatcher and Pope John Paul II. 20 years later
America is tragically repeating history by appeasing aggressors under the neo-Marxist, B. Hussein Obama. No one fears or respects the
United States any more and why should they?
Kim Jung Il, the North Korean communist dictator, violates international law and U.N. resolutions with impunity by shooting off rockets with a range to hit
Hawaii and Obama does nothing. As a matter of fact his next scheduled rocket launch will help
America celebrate her 233 birthday for he plans to launch it on the 4th of July. Obama’s response?— The USS John McCain, one of our newest Navy destroyers is tracking a North Korean ship, the Kang Nam, a vessel suspected of transporting illegal nuclear weapons and nuclear materials.
Don’t get your hopes up that Obama finally has some steel in his spine. The Navy admiral is under explicit orders not to provoke the North Koreans by boarding this vessel.
America has shackled itself under the “hail and query” principle: “Do you have any nuclear weapons or nuclear components on board this ship.” “No.” “Thank you, sir. Sorry to bother you. Have a nice day.”
How can we find out what is aboard the Kang Nam under these conditions? If we will wait for the ship to run out of gas around
Burma and put pressure on that dictatorship to allow our military destroyer to search this ship, what will be their answer? That’s not peace through strength. Obama’s foreign policy is reminiscent of the craven duplicity by Neville Chamberlain with Hitler at the Munich Treaty of 1938. It amounts to a diplomacy from our knees and I guarantee you that these convoluted, appeasement measures by the
U.S. will only embolden our enemies in tyrannical nations across the world.
In the meantime the world is becoming a much more dangerous place to live in as tyrants, socialists and Muslim fanatics across the globe mobilize under the Liberal-Muslim Axis seek to destroy or weaken capitalism and representative democracies wherever they find them — In Iran, Iraq, Pakistan, India, Lebanon, Gaza, Afghanistan, and beyond.
I am convinced the more I observe our president that Obama and his fascist legions are actually pleased with the mounting chaos destabilizing the civilized world. The simmering revolution in
Iran is just the most recent incarnation. It’s all Chaos Theory, http://www.worldnetdaily.com/index.php?pageId=92093 baby!
— And the more chaos the better because it gives Obama the pretext to “do something” to “fix” the problems. In the meantime Obama’s remedies only exacerbate existential domestic and geopolitical problems which only starts the Chaos Theory cycle anew.
Peace through strength or diplomacy from our knees? To any rational observer of politics it is obvious that Obama made the latter choice and
America is paying exceedingly for his treachery. The galling irony of it all is that in defense of the inevitable rocket attacks by
North Korea upon American soil what are we hastily moving to the coasts of
Hawaii? — That’s right a missile defense system (SDI). The same Quislings and Neville Chamberlains of the Democrat Party who for years lambasted Reagan as a “warmonger,” “stupid” and “naïve” now cower behind his legacy of SDI. This is the same SDI program that a few weeks ago Obama bragged that he wanted to dismantle because in his perverted worldview, protecting
America means destabilizing the world and antagonizing
The communist regime of Kim Jung Il has made it explicitly clear to
America: If we board their ship that
North Korea will consider that provocation an act of war. Let us hope that Obama will find the courage to be a man rather than a manchild when dealing with rogue nations like
North Korea and
In conclusion, I think that conservative intellectual, Ann Coulter, summed up the limits of diplomacy best when she wrote — There are only two choices with savages: Fight or run. Democrats always want to run, but they dress it up in meaningless catchphrases like "diplomacy," "détente," "engagement," "multilateral engagement," "multilateral diplomacy," "containment" and "going to the UN."
America, which policy will you choose? — Obama’s Diplomacy from our knees, or Reagan’s peace through strength? The survival of the civilized world hinges upon that choice.
