Have we “earned this”?
Right now we have a “President” (and a Congress) in this country who, on one hand, believes he can meet, talk, and reason without preconditions those enemies today who would see us and our allies completely obliterated. On the other hand, he has spent the most part of his public addresses to the world in less than a half year apologizing for our strengths and in doing so has minimized our losses and lessons learned in our own history … and has shunned and shamed our victories and accomplishments … simply because it doesn’t fit HIS high brow image of his own importance. Even in victory the United States has been wrong in his mind. In the heart of our current enemy’s realm he presented an appeasing address to our enemy’s masses (forgetting the populace of Nazi Germany, though not personally involved in the war and killing, did nothing to object or resist it amongst their own countrymen) that would have made Chamberlain burst with pride while making Churchill gasp and bellow of the impending dangers ahead that his own fellow countryman had just set before the world. Even our media seeks to make us (and our allies) the villan and minimize the real victims (in history and today) in their attempts to hoist up today’s enemy as victims.
