Is American Really Going to elect Obama? (Why he is unfit for office)

Is America really going to do this?
Friday, 24th October 2008

The impact of the financial crisis on the American presidential election has somewhat obscured the most important reason why the prospect of an Obama presidency is giving so many people nightmares. This is the fear that, if he wins, US defences will be emasculated at a time of unprecedented international peril and the enemies of America and the free world will seize their opportunity to destroy the west.

My uncle was a Senior Chief (E-8) in the Navy during Pres. Clinton’s military draw down. Two aircraft had to be cannibalized for parts to get a third one in the air. Six month deployments became 12, then 15, then 16. The Army suffered the loss of the Armored Gun System (a light tank that was heavier than the HMMWV’s and Strykers in Iraq). Retention and recruitment hit all time lows. Clinton never was serious about Obama, he just wanted the pomp of office to push his liberal agenda.

Obama is no different. He wants to cut missile defense and the Army’s future combat systems. While each program has problems, the Army and the country needs both to meet the future threats that face the world. Russia continues to supply arms to nations that hate us. China, North Korea and Iran are guns pointed at our friends. Israel, South Korea and Taiwan need our help.

Is this what Obama wants?

From Elise Labott
– Russia’s use of strategic bombers and ballistic missiles against Georgia’s civilians outside of the South Ossetian conflict is “far disproportionate” to Georgia’s alleged attack on Russian peacekeepers, a senior U.S. official said Saturday.

Our allies are suffering due to their lack of preparedness:

Royal Navy: Sunk! (Corrected)
Friday October 24th 2008- It takes a profound institutional meltdown to make the Pentagon look like a tight-run ship in comparison. Leave it to the British Ministry of Defense to allow just such a catastrophe in the U.K.’s senior service. In the roughly 15 years since the end of the Cold War, the Royal Navy — once one of the leading navies — has lost all of its fighter jets, one of its three small carriers and half its submarines, destroyers and frigates.

So what you say? It’s just the Brits. They are only helping us in Afghanistan and Iraq. AS our allies start to wither, the U.S. must step up. Obama instead want to replay the Clinton’s “cruise missile” foreign policy: shoot a few missiles then leave before the New York Times runs negative press. Otherwise he wants us in Afghanistan. But Pres. Obama (shudder) will run THAT war the same way LBJ ran Vietnam.

Again Elise Labott:

McCain believes in protecting and defending America as it is. Obama tells the world he is ashamed of America and wants to change it into something else. McCain stands for American exceptionalism, the belief that American values are superior to tyrannies. Obama stands for the expiation of America’s original sin in oppressing black people, the third world and the poor.

During the Falklands conflict, Ronald Regan gave technical assistance and arms to British Forces over Argentina. He said that the U.S. supported a democracy over a dictatorship (a military junta rulled Argentina at the time). Obama loves Hamas, Iran, Venezuela and other anti-American regimes. He and his cohorts view American with contempt.

Obama thinks world conflicts are basically the west’s fault, and so it must right the injustices it has inflicted. That’s why he believes in ‘soft power’ — diplomacy, aid, rectifying ‘grievances’ (thus legitimising them, encouraging terror and promoting injustice) and resolving conflict by talking. As a result, he will take an axe to America’s defences at the very time when they need to be built up. He has said he will ‘cut investments in unproven missile defense systems’; he will ‘not weaponize space’; he will ‘slow our development of future combat systems’; and he will also ‘not develop nuclear weapons,’ pledging to seek ‘deep cuts’ in America’s arsenal, thus unilaterally disabling its nuclear deterrent as Russia and China engage in massive military buildups.

To solve world conflict, Obama places his faith in the UN club of terror and tyranny, which is currently fuelling the murderous global demonisation of Israel for having the temerity to defend itself and is even now preparing for a rerun of its own anti-Jew hate-fest of Durban 2, which preceded 9/11 by a matter of days.
Obama dismisses the threat from Islamism, shows zero grasp of the strategic threat to the region and the world from the encirclement of Israel by Iran, displays a similar failure to grasp the strategic importance of Iraq,
There are, alas, many in the west for whom all this is music to their ears. Whether through wickedness, ideology, stupidity or derangement, they firmly believe that the ultimate source of conflict in the world derives at root from America and Israel, whose societies, culture and values they want to see emasculated or destroyed altogether. They are drooling at the prospect that an Obama presidency will bring that about. The rest of us can’t sleep at night.

Change? Keep your change Obama, I want a future.

  1. It would be a sad state of affairs if Mccain is elected

  2. chockblock Says:

    How? At least McCain follows what is happening in the world? Click on just of few links on my blog. The world is replaying 1930’s Europe, Obama is Neville Chamberlain.

    McCain is qualified. Democrats should have nominated someone like Joe Lieberman.

  3. more of the same, past 8 years
    i can think of lots of reasons why he is a better candidate.
    joe lieberman is a republican who got elected as a democrat, he supports the war of terror
    you seriously think obama doesn’t follow what is happening, that is retarded.

  4. chockblock Says:

    Iran is killing American soldiers in Iraq by training and supporting the insurgency. Their ballistic missile programs are terrifying. Russia is supporting the mad mullahs of Iran by arming them. the Iranian revolutionary guards are a terrorist organization. Israel has a target painted on them by Iran.

    Yet Obama wants to meet them without “preconditions”. Jimmy Carter folded, the Iranians expect Obama to do the same.

    Those of us in uniform are afraid that Obama will take an axe to our weapons, gear and our benefits. Bush took care of us and tried to fix problems as them came up. Clinton ignored the military and Obama will do the same.
