Thoughts before POTUS Speech and 9/11
America, I maybe Irish but I truly love you from the bottom of my heart. I know what makes you great but I have witnessed a steady decline in your country during my lifetime. I believe the next 24+ hours will be a defining time in your country. Let me explain why.
Firstly tonight your President will address the nation. This can go several ways. Firstly he can admit he has been wrong for 6 years and change from Chamberlain to Churchill over night. He can continue the path he is on which I believe will be incredibly dangerous. However I want to share something with you that I am worried about.
I am worried that everyone is focusing on what Obama SAYS tonight, and NOT what will be done which could be extremely different and / or be conflicting. The one part of politics in the Middle East, it can be virtually impossible to speak about one country in isolation because what happens in one country, can effect so many.
It might be tempting for POTUS to focus tonight solely on ISIS in Iraq but bear in mind there are some in BOTH parties who are still open to arming them in Syria.
I also have an additional fear that this POTUS might be so stupid / arrogant / or just not care and come at this from a mindset of “we just need to control the Middle East”. This will only embolden the enemy and inflict a lot more innocent casualties.
Luckily for America, there is a simple answer to this problem… NOT AN EASY ANSWER… but a simple one…. It is called the Reagan Foreign Policy and in particular the foreign policy towards Russia. The policy of WE WIN… THEY LOSE!!! And the policy that the Islamic Extremists are the enemy just like the Russian government and the acknowledgement of the fact that there are innocent Muslims who want to live in peace… just like the Russian people.
I will be praying for America tonight and tomorrow. I have never wanted a day to be over more than I want tomorrow to pass. Please be careful tomorrow, don’t do anything silly and report anything out of the ordinary. Tomorrow really is a day where it is better to be safe than sorry.
God Bless all of you and God Bless America!
