Watching History Unfold
Obama's War Mongering
A Commentary by J. D. Longstreet
one to say: "These are perilous times," in reference to our current
position on the time continuum, would be a vast understatement.
a military spent and degraded, the US stands on the cusp of a THIRD
WORLD WAR, which will -- win, lose, or draw, likely finish America for
Our President is insistent upon involving the US in the
"trigger conflict" which will, undoubtedly, set the wheels in motion
that will spark a regional conflagration drawing in the remaining
nations of the world due to the strategic location of the shooting war
make matters worse, our national legislature, the Congress, appears
ready to endorse the President's war mongering. Frankly, I had thought
they had better sense. But I now believe I was woefully wrong. They really ARE that dumb.
argument that Obama's war will be short-lived and have a narrow strike
zone and limited scope is all unadulterated Bovine Scatology. The
moment the first American bomb strikes Syrian soil it's: "GAME ON!"
The proverbial powder keg will explode and all hell will break loose all
over the world. That includes inside the contiguous United States, as
well. This time it is entirely likely that America will have war on its own shores.
you have ever, as an adult, taken a fall, you know there is a split
second when your mind suddenly grasps that your body is going to fall
and strike the hard floor and there is absolutely nothing you can do to prevent it.
In that same instant your mind begins preparing for the painful
aftermath, which it is now certain is forthcoming. All of this takes
place in an instant.
where this scribe is in assessing Obama's coming war in Syria -- or
should I say: Obama's war in the Middle East, or even Obama's Third
World War? The frustrating inability to do anything to prevent it is
It's as though the United States is on a pre-planned
excursion into Hell, itself, and the American people, like blind
lemmings, are marching right along behind their Luciferian leader into
the jaws of perdition having been easily convinced the heat they feel is
only the rays of a friendly sun.
The systematic dismantling of the United States by the marxocrats
is nearly complete now. Only one thing remains: Destruction of
America's military might. That, too, it appears, is approaching an
Consider the following from David G. Bolgiano
in an OP-ED piece n the September 1st edition of the Fayetteville
Observer of Fayetteville, NC, the home of Ft. Bragg:
has been a systemic winnowing of steely eyed killers from our
military's senior-leader ranks. In their place are effete politicians
with Harvard Kennedy School of Government-like credentials but lacking
true, close-in killing experience. Under such leadership, the lives of
suspected al-Qaida and Taliban are valued the same as our own young men
This misguided approach to fighting a
counterinsurgency fails, as Winston Churchill stated, to "decline
utterly to be impartial as between the fire brigade and the fire." This
raises a serious overarching question, "Why fight?" If the current crop
of leaders and lawyers were running the show back in 1944, the entire E

would have been court-martialed. Moreover, we would now all be speaking

Mr. Bolgiano goes on to say in his excellent article: "Unfortunately,
ill-informed and untrained lawyers have created an unnecessary legal
bogie monster by substituting fuzzy notions from human rights law for
the sound doctrine of the law of war. We now conduct war by such silly
notions as "warrant-based targeting" and "minimum force." The enemy has
become quite adept at using this tactic of "lawfare" to make us much
Many commanders are afraid to use force when their own troops are under attack." (Emphasis by underlining --MINE. ED) SOURCE: http://www.fayobserver.com/articles/2013/09/01/1279594?sac=fo.military
decades of scripture study I have wondered, as I am told many of you
have as well, why the US (or American army) is not identified amongst
the other armies of the great nations of the world in the scripture
covering the final battle, the Battle of Armageddon.
Could it be that THE US ARMY WILL NOT BE THERE because -- there will be no United States in existence to send an army.
For old-timers, like me, watching history unfold today is akin to watching a review of things past.
of the things one learns as one grows older is that history does, in
fact, repeat itself. The old adage that those who refuse to learn the
lessons from history past are doomed to repeat the mistakes their
forebears made -- is also true -- and in spades!
would have thought that a few pistol shots resulting in the death of
Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria on June 28th, 1914 would lead to not
one, but two, world wars? With brief respites, the nations of the
world were at each other's throats for the next 30 some-odd years.
If Obama gets his way, the US will be interfering in a civil war in a nation in which there are no vital national security interests for the United States. None.
the people of Britain, France, and Germany smarter than the US? Each
have said "no" to standing with Obama in a war which is undoubtedly the
"initializer" for a greater conflict.
The American people have cast their lot with the peoples of Britain, France and Germany. BUT -- the LEADERS
of the American people seem ready to defy the American people, the
lessons of history, and even common sense, to involve the United States
in a conflict that (I BELIEVE) will ultimately lead to the collapse of
the US and it's final break up into a number of smaller nations.
the American people have come to view electing a President as equal to
electing a prom king or even a student body president. It has become a
popularity contest. And THIS is the result. A leader who, when he deigns to lead at all, tends to lead the nation toward defeat and destruction.
America resembles an out of control "Merry-Go 'Round," or carousel,
accelerating faster and faster with no way for the riders to get off. The ONLY option is to hold on and wait for the crash.
