At the end of the 1930’s, the world was still healing from the wounds created by the first World War. The emotional embers were still burning when world leaders, led by British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain, hoping to avert a second World War brokered a deal with Nazi Germany. In that deal, their hope was that peace was the future of the world. It was not, war was.
It is quite obvious to myself and anyone who pays attention to the news that Iran is not to be trusted. But yet, President Obama, Secretary Of State John Kerry and other heads of governments around the world made a “peace accord” with Iran. I’m willing to bet that soon it won’t be worth more than the paper it is printed on.
Looking back at the nearly 8 years of the Obama administration, I wonder what history will say about this time in American history? On one hand, a man of mixed racial heritage in the white house is a huge leap forward. But if one were to examine his record as President a little closely, there are inconsistencies. He may not be Jimmy Carter, but he is coming pretty close.
History will be the judge of the outcome of this deal. But I have a sneaking suspicion that World War III may be the outcome. And if that is the case, Nagasaki and Hiroshima will look like child’s play compared to what may be ahead of us.
Fun stuff, right? Happy Wednesday.
In response to the murders of 17 French citizens last week in Paris, world leaders came together in a show of unity against terrorism.
Where were you, President Obama?
Every other president and major political leader was there. Even Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas was in attendance (His presence on Sunday, I believe to be questionable, but that is another topic for another time).
The fact that there was no American presence in Paris sends the world a very bad and dangerous signal.
Your very lucky that the twenty second amendment exists. Otherwise I have a feeling that this would be your second and final presidential term.
Today is the anniversary of the first day of World War II. On September 1, 1939, Germany invaded Poland. The European Theater of World War II started soon after. The United States waited a year and a half to enter the war. It was not until the Japanese destroyed Pearl Harbor on December 7th, 1941, that America sent her sons to fight.
Two questions come up on this 75th anniversary of the beginning of World War II.
1. I wonder what the leaders of the then free world would say about today’s leaders and their response to world events?
2. I wonder how today’s world leaders would respond to the events that led up to World War II? Would they step up and do what needed to be done or would they use tip toe diplomacy and hope that it keeps some sort of fragile peace?
Oh wait, they did that. The Allies gave Hitler Czechoslovakia in hopes of appeasing him and the Nazis. We all know how that turned out.
Those who forget history are doomed to repeat it. Are you listening, Mr. Obama?
