The Unsafe World of Barack Obama

"Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil;
who put darkness for light, and light for darkness;"
(Isa 5:20 NKJ)

As I survey the wreckage of the Obama landscape, I fear that my predictions before the election may sadly come true. Although some dismissed me (even people I thought would give me a fair hearing), I predicted that, if elected, Obama would lose the wars in both Afghanistan and Iraq, and that the US would be hit hard by more terrorist attacks.

It is obvious that Obama does not stand against evil internationally. He failed to denounce the rigged elections in Iran; he chums around with Hugh Chavez, a Marxist dictator; he does not even mention international terrorism when he "speaks to the Muslim world" in Egypt (although he does speak of the Koran as being "revealed.") Our General on the ground in Afghanistan tells him that only a troop surge will prevail against "mission failure" there, yet he refuses to immediately act and considers troop withdrawls. I doubt he has the nerve to make the victory stick in Iraq, especially given his gutless approach to Iran, which has sponsored terrorists in Iraq.

An unprecedented four major terrorist plots have been thwarted in recent days. (The Denver conspirator was arrested, but it is not known how much damage he may have done already by making bombs). Yet the Patriot Act is coming up for renewal. It is unlikely that the Obama-esque Democrats will vote to renew it. If so, more terrorist conspiracies will continue fail to be broken up. The results would be catastrophically deadly.

As I said, months ago before the election, contemporary Democrats do not understand the forces of evil in the world or how to confront them. They are Utopians, thinking that kind talk and kid gloves will dissolve ill feelings, especially when accompanied by much apologizing for (supposed) American evils worldwide. It is likely that we will soon discover the results of such foolishness and reckless irresponsibility.
