Is the new U.S. national symbol a chicken instead of the traditional eagle? The current administration has promised a priori “no use of force” against brigands such as the Somali pirates, North Korea and Iran. They arrogantly and ignorantly engage in hollow posturing and endanger our national security, while dismissing the sage advice of Ambassador Bolton and the Honorable Henry Kissinger. It’s a sure-fire recipe for diplomatic failure. The precedent set by this “progressive” declaration will open the floodgates to further terroristic acts that threaten and harm not only the United States but other countries as well.
Protecting the world against terrorism and murderous sabotage just got a little bit harder for all concerned, thanks to the cavalier attitude of experimental dabblers and wet-behind the-ears neophytes in the 2009 U.S. administration.
