Mr. Obama: We Need America On That Wall!

Pres. Obama's Hollywood friends will send an acting coach to the WH to help him display at least some outrage at beheadings, burnings, etc...WH Press Secretary Tweet

In the film, "A Few Good Men," Jack Nicholson's character (Col. Jessep) responds to Tom Cruise and his questioning {regarding the ordering of a "Code Red" that resulted in the death of a Marine}: "Son, we live in a world that has walls, and those walls have to be guarded by men with guns. Whose gonna do it? You? {Cruise is an attorney}...You don't want the truth because deep down in places you don't talk about at parties, you want me on that wall, you need me on that wall...I would rather you just say thank you, and went on your way. Otherwise, I suggest you pick up a weapon, and stand a post.  Either way, I don't give a damn what you think you are entitled to..."

I refer to that specific quote because I view the Obama administration as Tom Cruise's character in that film. Putting aside the fact that ordering the "Code Red" was wrong, Jack Nicholson's character made a valid point that permeates Obama's foreign policy today. While leaders like Israeli's PM Bibi Netanyahu are realists about the barbaric actions and  threats posed by the likes of Iran, ISIS, al-Qaeda and all their affiliates, Obama refuses to understand why we need America---along with its allies like Israel---on that wall today. Instead we have a president and Commander-in-Chief who is perceived as weak and entirely unreliable in challenging and meeting the actions and threats coming from our enemies. In addition, it's also clear he holds Israel in disdain, a nation that has been battling homicidal maniacs for over 60 years.

The purpose of manning that "wall" is to provide security for Western civilization. Instead of leading the charge in this war, we have an administration in Washington that even refuses to name them. Retired Gen. Michael Flynn and former head of the Defense Intelligence Agency made the same point when he told a Washington conference: "You cannot defeat an enemy you do not admit exists." Robert Gates, Obama's former secretary of defense, went even further when he wrote in his book "Duty," Obama doesn't "trust" the military and "he doesn't believe in his own strategy, and doesn't consider the war to be his."

And this warped mind-set was on exposition earlier this week when Obama--referring to the terrorist attacks on the Jewish Deli in Paris several weeks ago---actually said, the "violent, vicious zealots who behead people or randomly shoot a bunch of folks in a delis in Paris." 

"Zealots?" "Randomly shoot?" "A bunch of folks...?"---You gotta be kidding us right Mr. President? That scumbag went into a Jewish deli knowing he would find Jews not "a bunch of folks." 

So instead of unleashing hell upon our enemies in this war, the Obama administration continues to try to "make nice" with those psychopaths who think nothing of murdering and butchering innocent men, women and children. You cannot coexist with lunatics. As Jennifer Rubin of the Washington Post reminded us last week: "There is a reason the left-wing peace movement in Israel died...Virtually no one in Israel can honestly believe there is a peace to be had these days."

Mr. Obama, peace will only come when you man that wall.
