From a Great American

From a Great American:


Obama’s Weakness Dishonors and Humiliates   America


America Does Not Apologize for its   Greatness
nor Bow to Dictators

Barack   Obama puts our troops in danger every time he apologizes for America’s   greatness.

Instead   of seeing America as a liberator of the oppressed and a paragon of freedom,   Obama sees us as an imperialistic bully.

On April   3, 2009, while giving a speech to an audience gathered in Strasbourg, France,   Obama had this to say:

“In   America, there’s a failure to appreciate Europe’s leading role in the world.   Instead of celebrating your dynamic union and seeking to partner with you to   meet common challenges, there have been times where America has shown   arrogance and been dismissive, even derisive.”

Really   Mr. Obama?  I was unaware of this attitude on our part.

Tell me   then, was it dismissive when America committed 4,355,000 troops to the cause   of restoring peace and order across Europe following the outbreak of World   War I?

Was it   arrogance that gave 73,000 young Americans the courage to charge into a   barrage of gunfire on the beaches of Normandy and millions more the resolve   to liberate Europe from the oppression of the Third Reich?

Was it   derisive when Ronald Reagan stood at the Brandenburg Gate and demanded that   the Soviet Union tear down the Berlin Wall and allow for the peaceful   reunification of Germany?

While   Obama may believe such absurdities, the rest of America does not.

The   unconscionable truth is that Obama’s desire to see America bowing before the   rest of the world does not end there.

In February   2012, American troops at Bagram Airfield had probable cause to believe that   detainees being held on the base were using Korans to pass secret messages   between one another.  Given the security concerns arising from this   revelation, officials at Bagram made the decision to burn the Korans.

This act   resulted in protests, riots, and acts of extreme violence directed at our   troops by Afghan civilians and even members of the Afghan National Security   Force.

While   our troops were being slaughtered in the streets for simply trying to ensure   the safety of those on the base, American and Afghan alike, Obama issued a   letter of apology to the President of Afghanistan, Hamid Karzi, in which he   said the following:

“I   wish to express my deep regret for the reported incident…I assure you that we   will take the appropriate steps to avoid any recurrence, to include holding   accountable those responsible.”

Instead   of clarifying the situation and standing by our troops’ decision to prevent   detainees on the base from plotting God knows what, Obama adopted a   conciliatory tone and begged for forgiveness.

Instead   of standing-up as Commander-in-Chief and declaring that any acts of violence   against our troops would be met with swift reciprocity, Obama threw our   troops under the bus, or rather, into the hands of violent mobs looking to   rip them apart.

As if   such actions were not enough to dishonor and demoralize our troops, in July   of this year, the Obama administration offered yet another apology, this time   to the Pakistani government.

The   apology was for an air strike conducted by American forces on two Pakistani   border posts, an air strike that was in direct response to an ambush on   American forces by members of the Pakistani military, which left a United   States Army Major dead.

In   yet another display of utter disrespect and disdain for our military, Obama cow   tailed and again refused to stand by our troops, ordering his Secretary of   State, Hillary Clinton, to issue the following apology to Pakistan:

“We   are sorry for the losses suffered by the Pakistani military…We are committed   to working closely with Pakistan and Afghanistan to prevent this from ever   happening again.” 

As if   apologizing was not enough to humiliate America on the international stage, Obama   has seen fit to degrade the presidency and demean our nation even further by   bowing before dictators and other heads of state, like he did in 2009,   when he bowed to King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia, ranked as the 5th   worst dictator in the world by Parade in 2010…

…and   again later that year, when he bowed to Emperor Akihito of Japan…

…and   again in 2010, when he bowed to President Hu of the People’s Republic of   China, the Communist leader who ranked one spot bellow King Abdullah in Parade’s   2010 list of the world’s worst dictators…

…and   finally this year, when he bowed to President Calderon of Mexico.

America   deserves better than a Commander-in-Chief who apologizes for our greatest   accomplishments, who refuses to stand by the troops who die every day protecting   our freedoms, who bows to foreign despots, and who refuses to acknowledge   America’s place as one of the most remarkable nations in the history of man.

Special   Operations Speaks believes that our world is safest when America’s military   is at its strongest.  Our military can only be at its strongest when we   have a Commander-in-Chief who believes in American exceptionalism and who   sees this great nation as a beacon of freedom and liberty in an all too dark   world.

Instead   of apologizing to belligerent nations, our Commander-in-Chief should stand by   the brave men and woman who put themselves in harms way every day defending   the freedoms we enjoy.

If you   believe as we do, if you share our vision of a world in which America leads   from the front, instead of from behind, then please consider donating   whatever you can afford to our cause.

P.S.   Earlier this year, the Obama administration put-forth a plan calling for   $500 billion in defense spending cuts over the course of the next decade and   a drastic reduction in both the number of active duty service members and the   size of our naval fleet.

If   America is to be an exceptional nation, we must be willing to invest in the   men and woman who make it exceptional.
