Let us not forget all the brave men and woman, who... despite criticism from home and abroad, are sacrificing themselves in a noble effort to literally, save mankind from destruction. It is no less an endeavor than that as they set an example for a world frozen by vacillation and denial.
We, who have gone before, understand that freedom is never free and that to each succeeding generation, there comes a calling greater than self. That calling is to stand fast and defend, against all enemies, those values that are intrinsic and unique to what we know as the American spirit.
For it is now, as it has been before, that when ominous clouds gather on distant horizons many in the community of nations tremble in fear, weak of character and absent of resolve. Fear makes cowards of them all and blinds them to the lessons of history. To stand by and do nothing is to appease the evildoers and encourage and embolden them to even more contemptable acts. Whether one likes or dislikes a sitting President is irrelevant, at such a time, for he is the Commander in Chief and so designated by the very foundation of our nation, the Constitution. Until mankind has matured to the point wherein countries can identify and stop these assorted despots, civilization is left with no other option than a policy of pre-emption. For standing and waiting is inviting disaster and NOT an option.
