Guest Post: Stable by What Standard
Guest post today by Presley Armstrong. :) Enjoy!
“They have healed the wound of my people lightly, saying, ‘Peace, Peace,’ when there is no peace.” Jeremiah 6:14
“…The world is more stable now than it was five years ago.” - President Obama before the UN General Assembly Tuesday morning.1
That same Tuesday morning marked the fourth day of the standoff with Islamic Terrorists in Nairobi, Kenya. The Kenyan Government confirmed the fact that Islamic extremists from the United States are part of the terrorist cell causing the standoff. Four days ago, these terrorists walked into the mall and told innocent tourists to recite parts of the Koran. If they failed, they were executed on site. Others were asked who the mother of Muhammed was, if they didn’t know, they were executed. Sixty deaths confirmed so far. Does this sound stable?
How about this? In Iraq, we have supposedly finished the war. So why do we have thousands of soldiers still on Iraqi soil? Also, why have more soldiers died in the last five years fighting the war on terror than during the invasion of Afghanistan and Iraq in the previous term? In Egypt, why have Christians been crucified in broad daylight in front of the presidential palace this year? Why did our tax dollars go to fund Morsi’s rebels that were doing the executions? Even the Egyptians hated his evil leadership so much, they have toppled the new government that our leaders helped fund. In Syria, why are we funding rebels who are linked to Al-qaeda? The same rebels who recently went into a Christian village and slaughtered anyone who didn’t turn to Islam.
People can mock the old Bush era all they want, but I just got back from the middle east where even the Kuwaitis would say to me….”Bush was a good man, we knew where he stood…your president now, nobody knows what he is doing…”
None of this seems to be important to Americans, but hey, who won the Georgia game…
