Constantine writes about Obama’s style of leadership. Hint: He ain’t Ronald Reagan – Burkasrugly
Obama’s foreign policy went up in flames during the waning hours of Tuesday, September 11, 2012. Here are the facts.:
The synchronized, orchestrated attacks took place both in Cairo and Benghazi. In Benghazi, Libya we lost an Ambassador and three other American diplomatic personnel to a highly organized lynch mob with machine guns and RPGs.
These were deliberate, unlawful attacks upon American soil. Under international law an embassy is sacrosanct. It is literally, de facto, American soil. Thus, these two attacks were acts of war.
Both the Egyptian and Libyan governments failed to prevent or even control these attacks as required by international law .
These attacks were carried out under the rules of Sharia which recognizes neither Western law nor international law. It’s the old song about killing infidels played over and over. Sharia is not, nor will it ever be compatible with U.S. Constitutional Law. If you want to see the future of our country if Sharia takes root here you only need to look at the two sacked, burnt out Embassies.
Barak Hussain Obama is not only a failed leader, he is the destroyer of American values and our democratic traditions. His much heralded process of leading from behind is a total, abject failure. His 2009 apology tour of the Mid-East sowed the seeds of the Arab Spring which turned into the Islamic winter and is on the cusp of turning into the Salafi Hell. Obama through his absolute ineptitude brought about the deaths of our four diplomatic personnel.
The Benghazi attack seems to have been deliberately organized by the Salafist sect of Islam, the worst of the worst. The Salafis (to borrow a Christian analogy) make the Muslim Brotherhood look like a bunch of choir boys.
Only two kinds of people lead from behind. They are the inept or the cowards. Sometimes we have the worst of both worlds, the inept cowardly. Real leaders always lead from the front. Real leaders are willing to expose themselves to risk. They never ask any one to do something that they would not do themselves. It was said of Major Dick Winters from Band of the Brothers that he “was always last in the chow line and first in the trenches.” This is real honest to goodness leadership. Maybe if our president would come home from Las Vegas and stop worrying about his win at all costs election bid the American people would recover a modicum of respect for him.
President Teddy Roosevelt once remarked that the key to successful foreign policy was to “speak softly and carry a big stick.” I hope our future president, Mitt Romney, finds one helluva big stick, because he will surely need it.
Meanwhile, kudos to the Retired LTC Ralph Peters. He said we need to track down and kill all the Salafis who murdered our four diplomatic officers in Benghazi. How refreshing to find a man of genuine moral conviction.
In hoc sign vinces,
COURAGE, the virtue without which all the others are meaningless.
