NavyAdm. Samuel J. Locklear III delivered an ominous warning this week finally saying what I have been saying for over a year – the Chinese are growing in military might and are growing stronger than the US. Our military superiority is declining due to a lack of funding to modernize our weaponry, the purge of seasoned high-level officers and the gutting of the rank and file.
Obama’s propagandized ‘Asian Pivot’ is being outed by the upper brass. Unfortunately, it may be a case of too little, too late as the dark horse has left the barn by the planned open door policy of our Marxist regime. Three years ago, the Pentagon proclaimed that it was de-emphasizing its presence in Europe in favor of moving the bulk of our might to the Asia-Pacific region. But it hasn’t done much to deter China as they have aggressively modernized and expanded their weapons cache and bulked up their numbers in the military ranks. They are emboldened, due to the obvious weakness of the US and our lack of appetite to confront a major enemy. Instead, choosing diplomacy and the twisted logic of trying to switch from the US as the protector of the world (which it should never have been), to China. Incredibly, it appears Obama wants to put the Chinese communists in charge. But then again, it has been part of his plan all along. Saying ‘I told you so’ this time is a bitch.
As we celebrate the nations Independence; a half a world away, across the Atlantic Ocean and across the continent of Africa to the Nile delta, a nation with Revolution and Independence on their mind. An awakening of sort; Mursi insulted the office of the presidency which triggered a military power grab-back, from a radical Islamic based Government, with ever increasing evidence of genocide and persecutions of all other faiths and beliefs in freedom and liberty. The right to pursue ones happiness is something worth fighting for. It’s why I never could understand a part of the voting public here; they seem to take our freedom for granite. Our forefathers must have revered the ancient Egyptian culture for they used so much of it in our symbols and architecture, ancient ideas that spread out from that region many centuries ago. And ancient idea bounces back across the vastness in the bleak of an eye, taking shape on the other side of planet in a very different way. We all quietly root for the people of a country so enthralled in authoritarianism to break free, but it is a good reminder of just how hard it is to break free from a tyrant once they’ve took over.
