The Internet is filled with think pieces from the left and think pieces from the right. Every week, I’ll be offering my unique perspective on the issues of our time. Spoiler alert: I’m correct.
I assume you’ve already read about our embarrassment on the national stage last week. Yes, I am talking about both the sailor incident AND the so-called “release” of Americans who had been unjustly imprisoned by Iraq.
Some will say that the speedy release of the sailors who had drifted into Iranian waters is a validation of Obama’s approach towards Iraq. That couldn’t be further from the truth!
I mean, did you see the pictures? Our sailors were on their knees with their hands up! If anything, the second the Iranians saw American sailors in their territory, they should have given the American sailors their weapons and started massaging their backs.
Some traitors (AKA the lamestream media) will say it’s a good thing that the sailors were held relatively briefly, unharmed, and fed. But do we know what they were fed? Was it homemade or did the Iranian guards just heat up some frozen garbage in an underperforming microwave? Let me tell you right now, our troops would not be eating unevenly warmed Hot Pockets if we had a Republican president.
It all reflects the way that our president (if you can even call him that) has ruined our image and made us look weak in front of the world. Obama should have launched a full scale military strike on Iran before we even knew what had happened. Waiting to fully comprehend a situation is the sort of weakness that will signal to the rest of the world that America can be messed with.
Just think about it. No one would ever mess with us if we immediately overreacted with the full force of our military at any incident, whether we were at fault or not. In fact, it’d be even better if it turned out we were at fault, because then people would be too scared to ever point it out!
Just look at the last Bush presidency. Bush projected toughness, so no one in the world did anything wrong. Well, except for Putin invading Georgia, Kim Jong Il acquiring a nuclear weapon, 9/11 and other stuff. But as all actual Americans know, anything bad that happened under Bush was Clinton’s fault, or became Obama’s fault retroactively.
How do I know? Because Obama is a bad president, and therefore anything that he does must be bad. Simple.
