Just when you thought President Obama was at a real low point, he exceeds even his own poor judgement. Now that it has been announced that we are sending military advisers to Central Africa, one might ask the question, “what is the security risk to the United States that justifies this”. Were the countries in Central Africa about to attack us? Do they have nuclear weapons or weapons of mass destruction? Hmmm…… No one disputes that horrible things are going on there, but not every fight is our fight. Who appointed us the world’s policeman? And without a UN Resolution!!!!!
But here is what I really wonder about. Since I don’t have enough hours in the day to wonder about the President’s ineptitude, I wonder about the left and why they aren’t out protesting a war mongering President. He unilaterally sends our military into harms way without Congressional approval or any apparent strategy related to defending the country. Isn’t this the second time the President has done this? Does Libya ring a bell?Not that Qaddafi wasn’t a menace, but now that the regime is in tatters and their weapons are making their way to the Gaza Strip, we see the magnificent foreign policy triumphs of our President. Somehow the consequences of that decision are looking less humanitarian. Will this turn out any better? Maybe it is time he returns his Nobel Peace Prize because he apparently likes to solve problems by force.
I seem to recall Cindy Sheehan and the Code Pink crew being apoplectic when President Bush used the military to defend the nation against real threats, which is their purpose, after all. But sending them to Central Africa? Come on….not even the left can be that hypocritical….or can they?
Cindy, it is time for you to speak out. Your country needs you.
