China…..They don’t care, while they pursue peace, they will never give up territory that they feel is theirs. Warning to Japan.
Russia…. They don’t care, while they say they pursue peace, they will not allow the Ukraine, or Corsica to go down, and risk losing a military installation.
Both Dictating countries, acting at the same time. Both, seeming prepared to threaten world peace. Both taunting the United States to see if they have the fortitude to do anything about their claim to fame. What does the US say? They talk economic sanctions.
President Obama, obviously the weakest president on foreign affairs since prior to WWII, having created economic as well as political kaos in his own country powerless to do anything about encroachment by any country creating problems in the world. In short my friend, We the people of the United States seem to be nothing more than sitting ducks.
We have a weak president, a weak economy, a weak political structure, a serious issue with employment, most people living on a shoe string, the gradual elimination of the middle class, which I might add is picking up pace. and what could lead to serious problems instigated by China and Russia, that we can do nothing about. I don’t know…..Maybe Mr. Obama will choose to apologise to China and Russia for offending them.
It is all to obvious that this administration has weakened the United States and its influence around the world. While it is being said this morning that the President has been in contact with foreign heads of state while at his vacation retreat somewhere in the Florida Keys, not much is being said about their response. Maybe they are replying by saying something to the effect “Well, here’s another fine mess you have gotten us into”. or maybe they are asking “And…..Just what is it that you expect us to do”?
Sometimes Mr. President it is better to ignore saber-rattling. Best to let sleeping dogs lie. No not Mr. Obama. In his quest to prove himself a major player in world affairs, the first thing he does is run out to a microphone and threaten a super power. Then when China says something too, he does the same again. Now both situations are escalating, because President (Big Mouth) Obama doesn’t have a clue, and even recognize when it might be best to keep his mouth shut, and allow his diplomats to do their job.
First of all with Russia. The issue of concern by the Russian government is a naval facility in the Ukraine. In short they have a genuine interest in the region, and are attempting to protect that interest. As for China, this is nothing more than a territory dispute that has been going on for years. Even China is not interested in risking war when their economy is on a green light, full steam ahead, situation.
For the President of the United States to rush out to the mic and try to prove himself the leader he is not, was just about the dumbest thing he has done these past five years in office. If I were to write a book of the eight years of the Obama Administration I think I would entitle the book “The Stupid Years”….The Obama Administration and its failure to protect and defend the United States of America”.
This is a president that is un-experienced in Foreign Affairs. Has no sense of economics, a miserable failure when it comes to domestic issues, refuses to compromise, refuses to listen, and suffers from a serious case of arrogance. He has created a serious confrontation with Congress, and paralyzed the country, He is a sad commentary of or example of what a President should be. The man is worse than Jimmy Carter. As a matter of fact he makes Carter look like a saint. At least Carter was sincere.
I was speaking with a Pastor not long ago, and he said to me that if there is no turn around by 2015, he thinks it will be too late for The United States. He is not the only one concerned about the sad state of affairs in this country.
And while this nation suffers at the hands of stupidity, and arrogance, this president decides to worsen the situation by running out and spooning up confrontations with Russia and China.
Yep…..We are in serious trouble!
That’s my point of view. Have a good day folks and in as much that it is Sunday, pray….Pray real hard for America.
