AMERICA IS BEING PLACED IN DANGER! Learn From History Or Be Doomed To Repeat It!

THE MILTARY DON'T START WARS, POLITICIANS START WARS

RIGHT IS IT'S OWN DEFENSE

America was at peace.  Wanting to insure we stayed that way, President Theodore "Speak softly and carry a big stick" Roosevelt sailed a great white fleet of 16 battleships around the world.  The circumnavigation was to notifiy the world that America could and would enforce treaties and protect American holdings around the world.  The 14 month voyage, starting in December 1907, was a grand pagent of American sea power.

PRESIDENT TEDDY, THE ROUGH RIDER, ROOSEVELT NEVER FELT THE NEED TO APOLOGIZE FOR AMERICA NOR TO BOW DOWN TO ANY FOREIGN LEADERS!


Taft replaced Theodore Roosevelt for one term and he was then replaced by Woodroe Wilson in 1912.  Wilson was a pacifist and against the military.  Although war was obviously heading our way, Wilson insisted on strict neutrality.  After the sinking of the Lusitania, as part of German's newly announced submarine warfare, he was forced into war.  Wilson insisted that the war be declared against the German Government and not the German people.  When the war ended, the U.S. Senate refused to ratify the Treaty of Versailles, Wilson travelled around the nation trying to personally sell the American people on the Paris Peace Agreement.  On this trip he suffered a dibilitating stroke from which he never recovered.

Wilson had a lot in common with Barack Hussein Obama.  He was a pretty smooth character albeit, without a teleprompter..  The son of a Presbyterian minister, he was the only President to enter office with a Ph.D.  Although he managed with slick talk and promises to win the African American vote for a second term, he was a strict racist who betrayed them.  Southern born, he eulogized the South and lamented the period or reconstruction following the American Civil War.  He promoted southern segregation.

The American military was allowed to go into a deep relaspe of power as other countries obviously were building military might.  The U.S. Senate was right, the Treaty of Versailles was not worth the paper it was written on.  Germany was not allowed to again unite with Austria, they did.  All countries were to reduce their armed forces to the lowest level possible.  We did, Germany and Japan did just the opposite. 

.  The Germans, who were allowed only a 100,000 man army with no tanks, only a 6 ship navy, and no submarines at all, and no air force, totally ignored this treaty.  The Japanese did likewise, building up a great naval power.  They both ignored the paper agreement, and as American power dwindled, theirs grew by leaps and bounds, the Japanese with a large Navy and the Germans with all matter of the then most modern warfare, tanks and planes.

The only thing that saved America was that FDR, who had been the Secretary of the Navy, misappropariated funds to build up the Navy and the then, Army Air Force.  Thank goodness, as two of the carriers that turned the tide at the Battle of Midway were the Hornet and the Enterprise which FDR built.

Fast forward to President Jimmy Carter, another anti-military president.  In his one term he so reduced the efficiency of the military that we could not make a cross dessert flight to rescue 66 hostages in Iran.  Instead, after tweaking Carter's nose for years, America was futher ridiculed with Iranian picures to the world of our downed planes and helicopters.  (NOW WE HAVE PRESIDENT OBAMA'S NOSE BEING TWEAKED BY THE IRANIANS).
PEACE THROUGH STRENGTH
President Ronald Reagan resisted all efforts to weaken our Armed Forces.
He built up the regular forces and put into action star war type missle defense.
He told Kruschev to "TEAR DOWN THIS WALL".  He did!
He didn't have to tell Iran to release the hostages, they did, immediately.
REAGAN ACCUSED CARTER OF BEING WEAK AND VACILLATING,
INVITING ENEMIES TO ATTACK THE USA AND OUR ALLIES.

Fast forward to President George W. Bush.  Immediately following the attack on America on 9/11, our military forces, in two weeks, put down the 4th largest army in the world on their own home ground.  SHOCK AND AWE.   I think history will say that we would have been better off had we brought our troops home and not got into nation building.  Iraq and Afganistan have always been contentious people who, through various tribes and religiious beliefs, have fought with one another.  I don't think we will have changed that in the long run, and that at an unacceptable loss of American lives.

ONLY THOSE WHO ARE IDEOLOGICAL OPPOSED TO MILTARY PROGRAMS
THINK OF THE DEFENSE BUDGET
AS THE FIRST AND BEST PLACE TO GET RESOURCES
FOR SOCIAL AND WELFARE NEEDS - Herman Kahn


China is rapidly building a large military force.  WE CANNOT TRADE BODY FOR BODY WITH THE CHINESE.  They have just built their first aircraft carrier, not needed for defense of their homeland.  Iran is rapidly getting nuclear capabilities with Israel and the USA as clear targets.
PRESIDENT OBAMA IS UNILATERIALLY REDUCING OUR MILTARY CAPABILITY.  HE PLEDGED TO ELIMINATE OUR NUCLEAR SUPERIORITY, HE IS DOING JUST THAT.



America's homeland is enjoying peace through strength, as Reagan described.  We clearly have superior forces and technology, such as this new attack carrier, the USS INDEPENDENCE LCS2 with another 50 scheduled to be built.  Odds are, they will not be built.

GO NAVY!

FDR kept his officers and enlisted noncoms on hand with the CCC programs, knowing that such skills take a long time to replace.  President Obama is putting all this at risk reducing defense spending in order to finance his "transfer of wealth" program.


Reading his teleprompter, President Obama can make it out to be sound, fiscal policy.  Don't be mislead by his slick, presentations.  He is most experienced as a college lecturer.  He has zip executive experience and it shows.

PLEASE RECALL ALL THIS IN YOUR 2012 VOTE
