WHEN TOLERANCE KILLS

Political correctness is in the air, and fear of the truth is everywhere. In the aftermath of the recent attack on soldiers at Fort Hood, Texas, President Obama went out of his way not to use the word “terrorism” to describe the massacre. And for good reason, the fantasy that there is no “war on terror” is one of the quintessential cogs in the left’s governing apparatus. Without which, all the other gears in their machine will not turn. It shall be interesting to watch the president and his administration scramble to blame the military and the operations in Afghanistan and Iraq for this incident. They will blame everyone…except those responsible.

A TIME TO KILL?

To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted; A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away; A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace. – Ecclesiastes 3:1-7

Finally, ten months into his administration, President Obama has a significant foreign policy achievement he can hang his hat on. Perhaps it is something we can assume is a direct result of the “prestige” bestowed upon him with the awarding of the now infamous Nobel Peace Prize. No, I am not talking about an agreement for sanctions against the recalcitrant regime in Iran that is Hell-bent on developing nuclear weapons. The Russians, in spite of Obama’s feel-good appeasement/betrayal of the Czech and Polish governments, have already announced they will not participate in any such maneuver. Instead, our president has apparently succeeded in getting the legally removed socialist dictator in training restored to his presidency in Honduras.
