I came across this article on FOX news and it struck me that we are a nation adrift without a course and rudder to steer us towards our destiny in this hostile world. The most powerful nation and military in the world has the Joint Chiefs Chairman pleading with a Pastor of a 50 member congregation in Florida to pull his support of the video that has supposedly caused this recent strife and turmoil in Egypt, Libya, Yemen and Tunisia, here is the report from FOX news:
"Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, spoke with Terry Jones by phone Wednesday morning to voice his concerns.
In the brief call, Gen Dempsey expressed his concerns over the nature of the film, the tensions it will inflame and the violence it will cause. He asked Mr. Jones to consider withdrawing his support for the film," Pentagon spokesman Col. Dave Lapan said.
Four American officials, including the ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens, were killed in the attack Tuesday on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya. There are conflicting stories over whether the protesters in Libya were attacking because of the film or whether it was a pre-planned and coordinated strike.
Jones has caused Pentagon concern before, when he threatened to burn Korans. He eventually called off the demonstration."
Clearly this nation is leaderless when with the Military and its top general is begging a Pastor of a Podunk church in Florida to withdraw a meaningless affirmation of the film that allegedly provoked this recent outbreak of Muslim violence. Does anyone else see that our Military does not have any guidance or policy from Obama and his regime much less any handle from an intelligence perspective on what is really is going on, that they have to go on bended knee to this Pastor.
For lack of a better term a 'nobody' clearly we are in dangerous territory.
This is a clear cut indication that we do not have any coherent 'policy' for the Middle East and Obama is making it up as he goes, or he is actively pursuing and pushing us and the civilized world into another worldwide conflagration. This time with the Muslim world and the military is acting on their own volition to dampen this tense situation.
