If there’s one thing I despise it’s when our country is made to appear weak and embarrassed on a global stage.
As Written By Allen B. West:
I always enjoy hearing liberal progressives state that under President George W. Bush, America wasn’t liked. They say our reputation in the world was damaged, and that they, namely President Obama, have repaired our name and regard in the world.
Yeah, I suppose seeing videos of our Sailors on their knees at gun point along with pictures of them crying while being detained by another country is indeed a way to repair our “bad reputation.” Sure, we’ve spent a good amount of the last seven plus years apologizing and decimating our military strength — so yeah, everyone likes us now.
America has become the weakling on the block. We’re now the guy who gets the sand kicked in his face at the beach. For the liberal progressive left, that’s just fine by them — and the rest of the world especially likes it. For me, there’s something about being number one and owning the swagger. We cheer victors in this country, not victims, not losers. However, it makes the progressive leftists feel so good knowing we’re not exceptional, but just like everyone else.
And so it goes, we’re reduced to doing this, as reported by The Times Middle East, “The U.S. has pleaded with Russia to refrain from bombing American special forces troops operating covertly in northern Syria.
In an unprecedented move, the Pentagon has supplied the Russian military with the general location of a unit of about 50 U.S. commandos training Syrian rebel troops fighting Islamic State.
When President Obama approved sending a small team of special forces into Syria, the Pentagon released no further details, stating that secrecy was essential to protect the lives of the commandos.”
And Fox News reports, “U.S. defense officials say the U.S. has asked Russia to avoid airstrikes in an area of northern Syria where American special operations forces have been working with Syrians fighting the Islamic State group.
