‘We are now reaping what we have sown’

Published 4:40pm Friday, August 30, 2013

Dear Editor,
America is the greatest country or the stupidest.
We, as Americans, currently have a second-term president with his finger on the button that could start World War Three – apresident who has yet to prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that he is a citizen of this country. ‘
That, in itself, makes America the greatest country on this planet or the stupidest.
Barack Obama is the most Godless, incompetent leader this country has had.
Our president shows no comprehension whatsoever concerning the current situation in Egypt or Syria.
If we were going to react, we should have done so three years ago.
Just like in Libya and Iran, the U.S. cut off aid to the only stabilizing element in Egypt – the Egyptian Army – who removed a bad leader at the request of the people.
Currently in Syria, we have Hezbollah (which is supported by Iran, our enemy) helping Assad, the president of Syria.
The U.S., due to a nonexistent foreign policy, missed the boat by not helping the rebels three years ago.
They are now supported by our enemy – Al Qaeda. So what we have is two of our enemies fighting each other.
So someone please explain to me why we want them to stop fighting.
Russia and China both have stated each would help Assad if we intervene.
Do you really want to push that button?
At this point there is no proof who used chemical weapons.
Israel is sitting in the middle with about two hundred nukes waiting to be attacked.
This is truly the proverbial powder keg, and the U.S. has the most incompetent leader of any of the nations involved.
Now this could just be a diversion to keep the citizens of this country occupied.
Maybe no one will ask our Mr. Obama any questions on …  let’s see:  Fast and Furious, Benghazi, IRS, NSA or Obamacare.
Why are we still in Afghanistan? There are more Americans in Afghanistan than flush toilets.
The literacy rate is less than twenty percent. Please explain why we are still there.
At this point what we as citizens are witnessing is a typical Democrat reaction to a stressful situation.
The Democrats will always react with emotion – not facts or truth, just emotion.
Considering Mr. Obama and very few of his staff, i.e. John Kerry, served in the military, their ability to develop a proper response to this situation isn’t likely.
The citizens of this country are in a very precarious situation.
Our economy is still struggling as is China’s.
Our leadership, both Republican and Democrat, shows no signs of intelligent life.
What are we to do?
I would advise you to pray.
Our leadership has continued to take God out of our government.
We are now reaping what we have sown.
