Mr. President, We Don't "Volunteer" Our Military
In an interview that Obama gave in El Salvador during his recent South and Central America tour (as described by Byron Preston of Pajamas Media) he stated "...it's our military that is being volunteered by others to carry out missions". As usual it's difficult to understand what Obama is really saying because he always leaves space to be able to credibly contradict himself later, but in the quote above it's not some mysterious other person who would be "volunteering" our military (and I assume he's referring to NATO as the imagined borrowers), it would be Obama who would be loaning them, if such a situation were to occur, and this idea of loaning our military to a foreign power must never be allowed to happen, because before long they would likely be working under United Nations command, and we all know what fascist bastards the U.N. are. The reference was to the no-fly decision in Libya and the fact that Obama will not take a leadership role, but instead wants our military personnel to fight and possibly die under another nation's command. It's been stated that Obama is distrustful of American leadership in the world, and with him as Commander in Chief I share his distrust. What happened to the promise made by Obama during the last presidential campaign when he stated that he would be ready and waiting in case a 3AM emergency occurred and would respond at a moments notice? And now he hides behind Hillary's pantsuit and suggests that our troops be placed under foreign command so he doesn't have to make hard decisions and alienate his ultra-liberal base. This is near-criminal idiocy and must be halted. Obama is a dithering, indecisive man who is going to get Americans killed if he's not stopped. He is destroying the wealth and power of the United States while at the same time flying all over the world in Air Force One (which of course is powered by "yesterday's" source of power [jet fuel], and even though Obama uses Air Force One "today" and will do so again "tomorrow", he would never admit that by jet-setting in a private 747 he is demonstrating his lack of faith in his ideal world of green power. But of course it's difficult to push a 747 to lift-off speed using photovoltaic cells for power, so he'll continue to use the old fuel of "yesterday" regardless of how much his green policies increase the cost of everything we use today, and into the future).
