… You Have to Be Kidding ?!?! …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,August 5th,2013

.. Cutting and Running is not the Answer .

.. Stand Your Ground , just might be the answer .

.. The closing of embassies all over the Arab World is waaay beyond the pale . You do not deal with a security threat by digging a hole in the ground , and hiding your head in it . You begin to deal with the threat or threats . You take a proactive approach , and go on the offensive .

.. I thought that POTUS ‘ foreign policy is weak as a spaghetti noodle , but not this weak . The bad guys will just wait us out , and hit us when we least expect it . They will do it when it most suits them , and when it least suits us . Get serious , folks .

.. You have to move forward with a proactive approach . You need to give your intelligence services the tools to do the job that they were brought together to do . One also should give the intelligence services firm direction and guidance on what is expected , but not to micromanage what they do .  Give them room to do the job that they need to do . Be upfront . Defend what they do , and do not lowjack them with legal probes for past actions for which , directly or indirectly , they had the legal authority to do .

.. Make the bad guys respect them , and fear you . Then , they will know that retaliation will be swift , sure , and certain .

.. Also , be more careful about how one elects political leaders . It applies to senators , congresscritters , as well as to POTUS . Weak policy and weak leaders is asking for trouble .

… Cutting and Running is not the Answer ! …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,August 2nd,2013

.. The State Department seems to think that it has accurate intel about terroristic threats about ongoing ops in the Arab World . Or , so it thinks that it does . I would tend to wonder . As a response , they have ordered the “temporary” closure of embassies and consulates throughout the Arab World . They think that that is the answer to an increased security threat ? Cutting and Running ?

.. The ObamaCrap foreign policy is a disgrace . We are the laughingstock , around the world . Our level of respect in foreign lands has never been lower . The so – called ” Russian reset ” is anything but an embarassment . It is but an excuse for our foreign policy establishment to kiss up to the Russians , while appeasing them to the n – th degree , while effectively getting nothing in return . The “Arab Spring” has been totally mismanaged . Our friends cower in fear , while our enemies advance their interests . They do so with very little , if any , fear of what we think , or what we will do . The Far East has badly destabilized , and , if we are not careful , a war could break out , one that could go nuclear very quickly .

.. We need better . We deserve better . We have to have better . The sooner , the better .
