Where are the spirits of Gary Cooper, John Wayne, and Jimmy Stewart? Rolling in their graves so fast that you could probably use them as an alternative energy. The spirit of goodness and the obligation to fight evil, and help the underdogs in this world, nations that have been attacked and subjugated by totalitarian regimes, is now dead in the halls of government.
Our nation is now officially a coward, led by our sissy in chief Barry Nobama and his wussy posse. The commitment to the smaller countries of Eastern Europe for a missile shield to protect them from the missiles of Iran has now been cancelled by our Coward in Chief, caving in to the Russian A**wipe Putin and his Mafiya pals in the Kremlin.
The fact that Russia wants these satellite countries back under Russian control is well documented- the Russians feel it is their “Historic Right” to have these countries as theirs- Estonia, Poland, Ukraine, Georgia, and others all have become independent after Communism fell in the 90s. All of these countries like their independence, but instead of standing up for freedom, Barry is giving the Russians free rein to take them back, and the missile defense would have made taking these countries a little harder. Now, it is child’s play, and Barry doesn’t have the testicular fortitude to do anything about it.
This is bad news for all who care about the US commitment to the transatlantic alliance and the defence of Europe as well as the United States. It represents the appalling appeasement of Russian aggression and a willingness to sacrifice American allies on the altar of political expediency. A deal with the Russians to cancel missile defence installations sends a clear message that even Washington can be intimidated by the Russian bear.
What we have in office now is a man, (and I use that term very loosely), who does not like confrontation, is scared, and very much out of his depth; a man who has believed that the sound of his voice alone could soothe the Russian Bear, when there was no evidence that this was the case. A man who has always had others to do the confrontations for him, so he never had to actually screw his courage to the sticking point and take a stand. Bluntly put- he doesn’t know how.
