America’s last truly tough decision

            Swept into office on great expectations for “hope and change,” President Obama promised a better America and a better world.  He would restore America’s reputation; he would make the world like us again.

            Wasting no time going abroad, he apologized with odd irony to the French for American arrogance in Europe.  Despite guaranteeing western hemisphere independence since the Monroe Doctrine, he apologized to South American nations for lack of engagement and snuggled up to tyrants like Chavez and Castro.  He apologized to Muslims in Cairo for American heavy handedness and lack of empathy in the Middle East while Islamic Jihad was going viral.

            Intent on humbling America, Obama made it clear he thinks the world’s ills are largely caused by a fatally flawed super power.  The world may have problems with America, but it is Obama who disrespects our heritage and disdains our super power status. 

Obama resents what he perceives as a colonial power prospering by exploiting others; never mind that America has selflessly liberated or granted independence to more people than any other power in all human history.  He believes peace is only possible in a global community where all nations are equal, but they are not.

            Similarly, all ideas and philosophies are not equal, so giving legitimacy to tinhorn dictators, oppressive regimes, and terror exporting nations only degrades the whole world community.  However, Obama goes further because he seeks to deprive the world of a champion for good; he insists America be just another voice in the international crowd.

            With Obama’s perennial penchant for apologizing for America, Americans wondered when Obama went to visit Hiroshima, the first city wiped out by an American Atom Bomb in 1945.  Would he apologize to Japan?

            Press and pundits went to great lengths to convince everyone Obama did not apologize, but he did express distinct regret.  Never mentioning millions brutally murdered by the Japanese, he remorsefully stated “the scientific revolution that led to splitting of an atom requires a moral revolution as well.”

            What exactly does that mean?  Is Obama implying Truman made an immoral decision?  Is he saying we should not defend our way of life?  Is he saying we should not face down evil and defeat it?

Low estimates for an invasion of Japan were well over one million casualties, so President Truman made perhaps the most difficult decision ever faced by an American president.  He opted for the Atom Bomb to end the war sooner with fewer casualties – it was the most humane decision.  And in light of the absolutely abominable Japanese atrocities, ending that reign of terror was a highly moral decision.

Imbeciles, like NBC’s Brian Williams, surmised that “America dropped the Atom bomb in anger.”  Actually, it was exhaustion and compassion.  Truman made no apologies.  In fact, he promised even more bombing if unconditional surrender was not swift.  Compare his statement:  “we harnessed the power of the universe and loosed it on those that brought war to the Far East.”

In Prague in 2009, Obama insinuated it was America’s duty to make a world free of nuclear weapons out of some guilt for having used them.  Unlike Truman, Obama fails to see that peace comes through strength.  We avoided a horrible hot war with the Soviet Union precisely because we had nuclear weapons and were known to use them.

What has happened to world peace and American prestige now that the world knows we have president that will not stand nor fight much less use nuclear weapons?  America is distrusted, despised, and attacked regularly.  Obama called for a moral revolution, but we need a moral renaissance.  Obama is paralyzed by his relativist morals and therefore completely unable to make any truly tough decisions.  That’s why he fails to act against ISIS and eradicate obvious evil.
