War or Thaw?
Leon Panetta and Barack Obama have decided to kiss the battleship butts of the radical environmentalists and spend millions on alternative biofuels and unproven green technology.
Imagine...the Obama crew wants to defend our nation against environmental threats rather than against the Russians, Chinese, or Iranians. Forget the pirates in the Sudan, forget Iranian nukes -- let's rake algae instead of coal. We don't need armies; we need to stop climate change. We don't want to get burned when we go to the beach in our bathing suits. Who cares if there are jihadists hiding in the dunes ready to blow themselves up? When all our citizens are killed, give us some of that good, clean alternate energy.
The Department of Defense is super-afraid of climate warming and other hypothetical environmental threats to our national security. It's ironic that Defense Secretary Panetta, who should be worried about saving the country from bombs, missiles, armies, and nukes, has been bullied by a sophomoric, Al-Gorean philosophy and a collegiate president into worrying about global warming and fossil emissions.
Obama and Panetta have got to be kidding. Their priorities are upside-down like a cake. They are more worried about the temperature in March than they are about getting blown to smithereens by a well-militarized enemy. Rather than spend money on weapons, they want to commit two billion dollars to energy-efficiency and green technology. Green? It makes me see red.
I'm angry at the threat to our people because of the DoD's misallocation of funds. I remember when Reagan beat the Soviet Union by bankrupting them so that they could not compete with us militarily. Are Obama and Panetta Soviet enemies, or is Obama back in college, smoking grass and dreaming about peace and Buddhist mantras while our enemies are arming themselves to the teeth? Are we going to fight their nukes with air filters?
The question is, war or thaw? Is our government more interested in polar caps melting or in preparing our armed forces to protect America from the increasing weaponization of our foes?
What matters more -- life or a sunburn? Where are our priorities? It's like when Obama promised to do something about the economy and instead presented "Affordable Health Care." He was elected to improve the economy and instead increased our debt by meddling in medicine and inventing a watchdog bureaucracy.
Biofuels are more expensive than oil, and the money we have to tank there will weaken our weapons supply...not to mention leave amputees hobbling around hospitals without the government being able to afford new limbs for veterans.
If the Obama administration ever gets its act straight, it will worry about clear and present dangers rather than silly nightmares. Obama cares more about a few degrees' change in temperature in a hundred years than he cares about Iran going nuclear tomorrow.
Panetta wants to launch a "Great Green Fleet" and use an expensive blend of traditional and biofuels. He doesn't care about the dangers of enemy armies; missiles at the borders of defenseless European countries that can't afford shields; or Iranian, Korean, and rogue nukes.
The only Green movement the Obama crew failed to back was the one they should have supported -- the Green Revolution in Iran.
Great Panetta would rather say "yes" to Obama than say "yes" to defending the country. How many millions might die in so that Panetta and Obama can keep their jobs? It's time Panetta stopped worrying about polar bears and ice caps and concentrated on the efficiency of the armed forces (rather than its effect on climate).
Panetta is no climatologist. He was hired to protect the country, not to air-condition it.
Obama has listened to too many of Al Gore's speeches. It's time he took Gore's bust out of his closet and smashed it.
If the military keeps marching to the left, our armed forces will end up in the junkyard with the Soviet Union. Putin will be enjoying his third term. Obama will be enjoying a break from his second term while golfing in Spain with his wife for eight hundred thousand dollars. Obama, the man of the people, and his puppet Panetta have whispered sweet rhetorical nothings in our ears while tossing us down to economic decline and the dangers of other countries' militaries.
