Obama’s weakness is strengthening the resolve of our enemies against us
The policy of America in the post World War II era has always been that our enemies not simply respect us, but fear us as well. American military might has been an incredible deterrent to attacks from those who mean us harm. In the 1970’s under Jimmy Carter, our enemies no longer feared us, and as a result we had to suffer through the Iranian Hostage Crisis until Reagan was elected. Then they feared us again.
In 2014, the pusillanimous throat-clearings of the community organizer Barack Hussein Obama inspires fear in no one. Only mocking and derisive laughter. Oh, we are still the mightiest military in the world, yes, but our enemies know we won’t pull the trigger. Russia knows the cowardice of Obama, and so to drive that point home Putin has started doing the unthinkable. He has begun to send Russian nuclear bombers out on practice attack runs over America’s North Atlantic.
Obama’s response? Nothing.
Two Russian strategic bombers conducted practice cruise missile attacks on the United States during a training mission last week that defense officials say appeared timed to the NATO summit in Wales.
The Russian Tu-95 Bear bombers were tracked flying a route across the northern Atlantic near Iceland, Greenland, and Canada’s northeast.
Analysis of the flight indicated the aircraft were conducting practice runs to a pre-determined “launch box”—an optimum point for firing nuclear-armed cruise missiles at U.S. targets , said defense officials familiar with intelligence reports.
Disclosure of the nuclear bombing practice comes as a Russian general last week called for Moscow to change its doctrine to include preemptive nuclear strikes on the United State s and NATO.
Gen. Yuri Yakubov, a senior Defense Ministry official, was quoted by the state-run Interfax news agency as saying that Russia’s 2010 military doctrine should be revised to identify the United States and the NATO alliance as enemies, and clearly outline the conditions for a preemptive nuclear strike against them.
Yakubov said among other needed doctrinal changes, “it is necessary to hash out the conditions under which Russia could carry out a preemptive strike with the Russian Strategic Rocket Forces”—Moscow’s nuclear forces.
The practice bombing runs are the latest in a series of incidents involving threatening Russian bomber flights near the United States . Analysts say the bomber flights are nuclear saber-rattling by Moscow as a result of heightened tensions over the crisis in Ukraine.
A spokesman for the U.S. Northern Command and North American Aerospace Defense Command declined to comment on the bomber flights in the North Atlantic.
