While the average American can tolerate the legal slaughter of thirty-five hundred innocent children every day, a government that spends more than it has and demands people to buy products or else get taxed, and a culture that thinks that a guy marrying a guy is normal, one thing we have a hard time tolerating is a lack of national defense.
This is, of course, a major plus for Republicans, since we are big advocates for American supremacy on a global field.
But what happens when we are faced with conflict, and there is no Republican there to hate the enemy and give him war? What happens when a country like Iran, which is run by insane but cunning muslim radicals who live for the purpose of making righteous war against anyone who disagrees with their rediculous ideologies, goes nuclear and threatens to wipe us and our allies of the face of the planet?
How about diplomacy? Sorry, buddy, that's not going to work. One thing many people do not understand about middle eastern mentality is that there is no effectiveness in negotiation. They laugh at people who make deals with their enemies. The only thing we've accomplished is making them think we're complete idiots. They aren't too far from the truth in that respect.
So what do we do? I guess we just try more and more diplomacy until Iran has finished laughing their heads off and actually starts killing people. Then, I guess we'll blame Republicans for not acting sooner.
Or, we can give Israel the thirty-thousand bunker buster bombs they have been asking for, maybe even a few B1's and B2's to help the process along. A quick, snappy operation to get Iran on its knees, and we won't have to worry all the time about, "when will Iran strike?"
Of course, that probably won't be attempted until it's too late.
Basically, we have a choice. We can defend ourselves and our strongest ally, Israel, against the worst potential enemy since Japan in the 1940's, or we can sit on our tushes and be anti-racist, loving people who are oblivious of the coming destruction. If Obama stays true to his own, he could settle part of a century long argument: which is best for America: Conservatives, or Liberals?
