President Obama You Have My Support. Children Died
He looked I imagine at history and what President sat on his hands and lost the most troops in war?
He probably also looked at a President who thought working on stuff here at home was more important than going to war.
Then he looked at a President who for so many years wanted America to be Isolationists?
I imagine he was surprised to find that the same exact President was the answer to all those questions. He saw that President made a huge mistake and it cost the world 3% of its population and 2400 Americans died in their sleep. Then another 400,000 Americans lost their lives against a war machine called Hitler.
Yes FDR was the isolationist President who tried to do good and in the long run it cost us dearly. FDR knew once the Japanese found a weakness in America he had to strike back with a fierce fight.
FDR was not morally challenged like President Obama is. President Obama has the faces of 400 dead children who were gassed to death. His dreams turn to nightmares and all he wants is Americans to back him with a strike that will cost us so little but could save the lives of so many more.
What are the consequences if we strike?
Russia won't attack. Putin is an old KGB officer and his life is so much better than it use to be so he does not want to risk that. Russia went through rough times after the end of the Cold War and they are finally recovering. He does not want to risk that. The reason he sent 3 destroyers instead of more than what we have 5 and a nuclear Sub. Russia is just posturing they don't care about Assad they just want their base to stay in Syria.
Chinese won't attack because they are Isolationist Communist country. They have to much at stake economically if they do attack. And even if they did attack all they have is one Aircraft Carrier so they would not even match up.
Iran will not attack. They have threatened but the new President wants some of the restrictions lifted for his country.
What happens if we do not attack?
Venezuela and Brazil are perfect spots for Al Quaeda training grounds. Once they have recruited and ready they can march their way up into Central America and get stronger. Then they hook up with the cartels and we will end up with a blood bath on the southern border.
Then if we end up Isolationists people will lose jobs and wages will fall and prices will go up and the unemployment lines will be full. Why you ask? Because Isolationists in America want to go back to the Gold Standard and we cannot trade with the gold standard. We can't have debt. Then we end up in a Civil War killing each other just like Syria. Yes people like Rand Paul are dangerous for America. They are twisting the minds of the young and showing them life will be grand. Ask the Chinese what its like to be isolationists they had a bloody Civil War. If you think Isolationism is good ask North Korea how it is working for them.
We will lose our standing in the World. Allies will understand they cannot trust America. We eventually will lose a country we have fought so hard to keep.
2.000,000 Americans live abroad that is why we look like the worlds police. We have Americans everywhere that look to us to protect them.
What is the value of a human life? It doesn't matter if 1 dies or 300,000 die a life is a life. We need to step up to the plate and make those strikes on Syria and let them know Chemical Weapons will cost them.
What will we strike? Air refueling stations, Sortie Maintenance Areas, landing strips, Any area that needs a bunker buster will come from B-1's who will sneak in and kill off their chemical trail. These are areas that will have low chance for collateral damage and will show the world we stick behind our President. I have always voted Republican but I can see the Presidents challenge and when children die it could be our children in the future.
If Congress cannot pull it together we need to show this President his presidency matters. Once a President I drop all party lines and support that President and if he says a limited strike is the option I stand behind that. If your an American you should as well. We need to show the world we stick together no matter how hard it gets.
President Obama you have my support.
