Obama's real message to Europe
I wonder if the "world", particularly Western Europe, understands what Obama has just told them?
As they stand up and cheer for the insults to America its president delivers, did they understand what those words imply?
He told them America is not a good leader, that we are just one of many nations, that we are arrogant, pushy, derisive of their great wisdom and partnership, and will not act unilaterally in the future.
Now. Let me translate: "America won't be saving your ass ever again. You're on your own."
Here's how that works out: Obama is under the impression that all the European Left's caw-caw-cawing about America is sincere and genuine; that they really want America to stand down and never act internationally and unilaterally for the right and the true. He seems to believe that the nations of Western Europe don't really want the United States to be ready to defend them at a moment's notice.
He seems to think the people of Western Europe don't want us to be the country policing nuclear weapons around the world. He seems to think Europeans don't want us to fight their battles in Eastern Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
He believes the European Left. And believes it speaks for the European people. Perhaps it does. Perhaps the decades of safety and security provided by the unappreciated parent have made the spoiled brats forget that the house they live in was built with American blood and treasure, and protected with American heroes and watchfulness and vigilance. Perhaps they forget that all the money they do not spend on national defense is shouldered by the American taxpayer...leaving all that "extra" money in Europe to be spent on socialist policies -- convincing them that the world is not dangerous because Daddy-America is always on watch.
But Obama's apologies are carrier-waves for a deeper message that everyone seem to have missed — especially the cheering throngs of European Obamaniacs.
When they really need us next time, we won't be there to help. We won't do a thing without the political permission of the governments of Europe, and the direct participation of their 'armies'. We're disarming and weakening our military -- for peace -- as you all have done. We're going to spend our money on "social justice" and progressive programs, not our warmongering military.
When Russia expands, when Iran nukes, when North Korea lobs missiles, when China moves...you're on your own. When Africa implodes...you're on your own. When Jihadists terrorize...you're on your own. America the arrogant and unilateral will have mended her ways, and will not presume to police the world and insult you with her unseemly strength and offensive moral certainty.
We'll barely be able to defend our own homeland. You're on your own.
That's the hidden message of Barack Obama. He doesn't like Europe any better than he likes America.
So, Europe... how do you like him now? You sure you still want to stand up and cheer?
