America was attacked September 11, 2001 by 19 al Qaeda jihad terrorists. What happened? All hell broke loose in Afghanistan and Iraq. Pakistan fell in line. Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi turned over his WMDs. Every single world dictator, strong man and leader knew not to trifle with America. Yes, with heads down, the Iranians stayed more or less on course. Yes, al Qaeda was recruiting younger jihad leaders. The Muslim Brotherhood and Turkey’s new Islamic leader, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, were on board with a Jihadist war against the west. But American power was respected. By June, 2009 that all changed. America’s enemies knew America was in a state of paralysis. August three years later, The American President drew a red line in Syria. Then on September 11, America was hit in Benghazi, Libya. America did nothing.
With the 2012 election, American people kept their national leadership in place. One year later the American Presidential red line has turned yellow and the President of third rate power Russia, Vladimir Putin, has stepped in to the roll of peacemaker. Rush Limbaugh thought Tuesday, Putin, not Obama, should address America Tuesday night. And Edward Snowden has been nominated to join President Barak Obama with a Nobel Peace Prize. Benghazi? Nothing has been done. This is a shameful time for America.
Is America that weak? No. America is in a real economic mess but is still by far the strongest, healthiest economy on earth. America is the only nation that can project military power around the world in more than one place at once. If the American people elect a strong mature President in 2016, America can restore order within weeks with one act.
Will that happen? I don’t know. I do know TEA Parties across America are geared up with far more purpose, more people and more organization than four years ago. Pray for America, pray for freedom.
