Feeling Safer Yet?

As I recall, the problem during the last eight years was that other countries didn’t like us and that made us less safe. So now that more countries like us we should be safer. Right? You be the judge…

WASHINGTON (CNN) — President Obama castigated the North Korean government Monday for conducting a second nuclear bomb test in defiance of multiple international warnings.
President Obama calls North Korea’s nuclear test “a grave threat to the peace and stability of the world.”

President Obama calls North Korea’s nuclear test “a grave threat to the peace and stability of the world.”

North Korea’s actions “pose a grave threat to the peace and stability of the world,” Obama said at the White House.

Obama promised that the United States and the international community would strongly respond to the test.

He added that North Korea’s actions have “flown in the face of United Nations resolutions” and were inviting deeper international isolation for the communist state.

She [Caroline Glick, deputy editor and op-ed writer for the Jerusalem Post] writes, “…we have learned that the [Obama] administration has made its peace with Iran’s nuclear aspirations. Senior administration officials acknowledge as much in off-record briefings. It is true, they say, that Iran may exploit its future talks with the US to run down the clock before they test a nuclear weapon. But, they add, if that happens, the US will simply have to live with a nuclear-armed mullocracy.”

She goes on to write that the Obama administration is desperate to stop Israel from attacking Iran writing that “as far as the [Obama] administration is concerned, if Israel could just leave Iran’s nuclear installations alone, Iran would behave itself.” She notes that American officials would regard any harm to American interests that flowed from an Israeli attack on Iranian nuclear facilities as Israel’s doing, not Iran’s.

We’ve got the MommyParty running things folks. Somehow I have a feeling that none of the issues currently commanding our attention, and probably none of the Republican “leaders” or “contenders” we’re currently discussing are going to be even remotely on the table by 2012. We could be looking at a world that a printing press with paper and green ink can’t fix.

The time to stop the fool, and the foolishness, is now.
