What is the Obama Doctrine, the doctrine from a man that is neither very smart nor experienced....
American freedom will not be secured by empty threats, meaningless red lines, leading from behind, appeasing our enemies, abandoning our allies, or apologizing for our great nation—all hallmarks to date of the Obama doctrine. Our security, and the security of our friends around the world, can only be guaranteed with a fundamental reversal of the policies of the past six years.
So we have a person that lives in a fantasy, that never had his ideas challenged, probably, in my opinion, due to the Liberal idea that he was a 'Black' man and folks are not allowed to challenge a 'Black' man. So he never really faced reality but is facing it now.
But Ronald Reagan knew this and had this to say about naivete and appeasement....
In 1983, President Ronald Reagan said, "If history teaches anything, it teaches that simple-minded appeasement or wishful thinking about our adversaries is folly. It means the betrayal of our past, the squandering of our freedom."
I am afraid that our naive President is leading us down a path, a stupider path, and one that will eventually cause us much more that we would like to pay.
And lets not forget what one man said...
Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe to assure the survival and the success of liberty.
-John F. Kennedy-
But it seems to me as if lately we have either been scared to engage or unwilling to continue what is in our best interest. And let us not forget....
The cost of freedom is always high, but Americans have always paid it. And one path we shall never choose, and that is the path of surrender, or submission.
-John F. Kennedy-
But submissiveness is what we are getting with the consequences to prove it.
