Weakness has a savor no predator can resist - and America’s leadership reeks with that stench.
Russia has finally discarded the sheep’s clothing it has worn since the Soviet Union collapsed in the 1990s. The Soviet bitch is in heat again, aroused by ringmaster Vladmir Putin, who has set his dogs of war against the tiny new country of Georgia. Like a demonically resurrected corpse from some horror movie, Putin leads the pack while his lickspittle sidekick, President Medvedev, pretends to power. You can take the boy out of the KGB, but you can’t take the KGB out of the boy, as the saying goes.
Once again, as if on queue, American leadership has been surprised by a deadly evil attack. Our fool president, our clueless “intelligence” services, our naive military, have all been caught with their pants down, again. The president was in China, kowtowing to our most dangerous and determined enemy, the Chinese communists, telling the press how important it is to maintain cordial relations with those thugs.
Our almost wholly worthless news media was busy covering various and sundry sexual scandals, some political, some routinely Hollywoodesque, virtually ignoring this new war.
However, our dauntlessly dainty Secretary of State, “Condi” was able to make several scolding gestures toward the Russian beast (sad but true, active, warring dictators like Putin, Kim Jon Il, Hu Jintao, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and all of our freedom hating Juhadists, have only contempt for brilliant, talented, educated women like Condi Rice – largely because that’s the way their societies have always viewed women). But in America, political correctness must be served, and Georgia is being overrun.
Putin is in full command of the new Russian threat. The oil money tsunami has reinvigorated the toothless beast of the recent past. Now it seeks to recapture all of its old slave “republics”, and is showing the will, intent, and power to do so - because the west shows itself to be impotent, indecisive, and in the grips of political inertia.
Why didn’t (doesn’t) NATO move quickly to include Georgia within its ranks? America and the West certainly encouraged it to join-up and side with democracy. But, America, in particular, has developed an infamous history of falsely encouraging weaker states to rebel against their despotic masters, and then abandoning them to a terrible fate. We ignored Hitler’s move into Sudetenland, then all of Czechoslovakia, as did Chamberlain, appeasing the beast to preserve neutrality. We promised to help Hungary in 1956, and South Vietnam, which we abandoned ignominiously. We failed to follow through in helping Cuba. American leadership has made Americans appear to be untrustworthy friends.
Russia has just declared war on a small, neutral independent and democratic nation once again. This will have disastrous global consequences. Russia’s disastrous misadventure in Afghanistan failed to drive the stake deeply enough into the communist heart to kill the beast. It’s alive!
Regardless of our ongoing commitment in Afghanistan and Iraq, America must act now to throw back the Russian invasion of Georgia. At least provide the tools to do the job – like Stinger anti-aircraft missiles. Where is NATO? Where is that most vaunted darling of the Liberal Left, the United Nations? Our present weakness is due to decades of military cut-backs, and further proof of our need for a military twice the size – as it was under President Reagan.
This latest undeclared war lays bare America’s need for strong, resolute, experienced LEADERSHIP. The world is a more dangerous place than ever before in history. Is the Left’s most notorious lovechild, Barack Obama, the leader we need to defend our friends – and this nation? You bet your life he is not. We need a leader with a complete set of male equipment, and the proven ability to lead. This is not the time for on-the-job training for the position of Commander in Chief!
Let’s forget about the communist Olympic theater. Let’s forget about the fraudulent hysteria of global warming. It’s time to help the innocent men, women and children being murdered in Georgia by invading Russian forces. It’s time to give Russia a lesson in unified, determined democracy. It’s time for righteous anger and action.
It’s past time for America to regain its manhood. It’s time to fight – for our friends, for our nation, for our sovereign borders, and for our Judeo-Christian heritage. Those who are not with us are against us, and we should proceed accordingly.
Immediate action must be taken to counter the Russian attack, and to strengthen our ties with the other ex-Soviet countries at risk, such as Ukraine.
Ukraine is critical to the security of Western Europe. It is also the host port for Russia’s Crimean fleet, including atomic submarines. The Ukraine is immediately threatened. Here are some obligations NATO agreed to 11 years ago: Charter on a Distinctive Partnership between the North Atlantic Treaty Organization and Ukraine "Madrid, 9 July 1997. V. Cooperation for a More Secure Europe
14. NATO Allies will continue to support Ukrainian sovereignty and independence, territorial integrity, democratic development, economic prosperity and its status as a non-nuclear weapon state, and the principle of inviolability of frontiers, as key factors of stability and security in Central and Eastern Europe and in the continent as a whole.
15. NATO and Ukraine will develop a crisis consultative mechanism to consult together whenever Ukraine perceives a direct threat to its territorial integrity, political independence, or security."
Too bad nothing like this exists for Georgia. We will soon learn if these commitments will be kept for Ukraine, which is the most important target.
This declaration of war by Russia had obviously been planned for a long time. Everything was carefully staged. We can also be sure that similar planning includes the overthrow of other newly free nations. This calls for immediate counter action. We should all be concerned about President Bush’s, now notorious, lack of will. However, if he does not act resolutely to assist Georgia the consequences will be more serious than a failure in Iraq and will embolden all of our enemies.
Our enemies have taken the measure of American leaders; they have been weighed on the scale and been found wanting in terms of courage, intelligence, and integrity.
We need to counter Russian aggression which is killing innocent women and children and destroying their property. We need our President to at least appear to be stronger than France’s top man, who trembled like a frightened mouse while complaining to Russia’s president (what’s his name?) you know, that young guy who pimps for Putin.
