Appeasement


The Wars of Appeasement


Many Americans are asking their selves what are our elected officials are doing, because most of the time the things that they do are so stupid {if our president can use the word stupid I guess I can too.} We could talk about heath care, the high unemployment rate, and many other issues that need to be addressed and they are doing a very poor job of addressing those issues as we all can see.

But I cannot and will not ever understand why this congress and the Obama administration will send our money to support a country or people that are terrorist and if these terrorist had their chance would wipe us off the face of the earth. We have a president that will not even use the word terrorist or recognize terrorism for what it is. We have the head of homeland security that is more worried about the returning troops, the people who listen to talk radio, the so called tea baggers, and people who cling to their Bibles and guns, than she is about Muslim terrorist. We cannot profile even though nearly, if not all, of the terrorist attacks against this country are by Muslims. People should have no problem with profiling as long it is for the security of this nation and its people.

The president is turning the terrorist detainees who are held at Gitmo loose and sending back to the Middle East where they rejoin other terrorist groups to wage war against us again. We have tied the hands of the CIA and by doing this we have compromised the security of this nation. The prisoners of war are now given their Miranda warnings and are tried in civilian courts and given the same rights as the United States citizen has. They are given a stage to promote their ideology. Can you imagine this happening in WW Two?

To even make matters worse our government is paying for everything. This past week 54 Democratic members of Congress wrote Obama a letter asking him to apply pressure on Israel to remove its restrictions on the import of goods -- including dual use goods like construction materials, to the Hamas-controlled Gaza. Never mind that under United States law it is legally difficult to provide any aid, (including the $300 million Obama has pledged) to Gaza in light of the fact that it is controlled and ruled by a terrorist organization that is not only against the tiny nation of Israel, which the Hamas calls "The Little Satan" but also considers the United States the "Big Satan". Why are we giving away money to a terrorist origination that wants to destroy us and our freedoms?


 

This kind of leadership is nothing new for the people in Washington. This kind of policy started during the Korean War, which to this day our government calls a "police action". Obama did not start this policy of given in to our enemy, he just expounded on it until it has become ludicrous and dangerous. Starting with the Korean War our troops were sent to fight, and die, but were never allowed to win. The man who could have lead us to victory in that war, Douglas MacArthur, was fired and sent home in disgrace because he spoke out on the polices of our government that would not allow our soldiers to win the war. MacArthur, along with millions of other Americans, wanted to know why thousands of American soldiers were dying in a war that they were not allowed to win. When the killing stopped this country sunk millions of dollars into that country, {North Korea} who to this day is still wanting the destruction of this country and the boundaries are just about the same as they were at the start of that conflict. So nothing was gained by that war but much was lost starting with the thousands of dead, maimed, and injured troops that put their life on the line for their country. Now the Korean conflict is referred to as the "Forgotten War". What a shameful tribute to the thousands of American GIs that lost their life there.


 

The same goes for the Viet Nam war. Our troops were sent to a war that once again they could not win because their own government tied their hands. They were only allowed to bomb certain places, pursue the enemy so far. Body bags and maimed soldiers were coming back to this country by the plane loads and returning soldiers were spit upon, cussed, and called every name in the book. For this our nation owes these brave men an apology. Returning soldiers could not understand why they were not allowed to win and why they were there fighting and dying. Millions of our tax dollars were sent to that country after the war.

The same thing is happening today with the war on terror. We ask our brave men to go fight and die, but tie their hands. We fight, for what, it is not to win, and all the while we are giving these countries millions of dollars in aid in which 90% of it goes to their war chest that is used against us. That is the way it has been since the Korean War. No wonder the world calls the United States "The Paper Tiger". It is time that this country gets back to the meaning of: "mean what we say and say what we mean", while we still have a country left.


 

The big difference between the war on terror and the other wars is this: The terrorism for the most part is here on our soil, with the blood of thousands of civilians already lost on 911 in New York, The pentagon, and Pennsylvania. Our government must wake up out of their stupor and realize that no war is won by a "police action", or by having empathy for the enemy as our president wants. As General Patton said during WW2: "No country has won a war by holding their own. We are to keep advancing, kill the enemy, and wade through their blood. I think that is a good idea and I hope that as we do what Patton said that Allah does not run out of virgins to pass out.
