Bad for the U.S.

Dear Editor:

Obama’s naivety, arrogance, and lack of American history knowledge became all too visible during his tour of apology. He rattled a paper sword at North Korea and by implication has sent a new message to Iran. According to the London Times, Obama’s overall message to Iran was, “Don’t develop a nuclear weapon.” Former President George W. Bush was always dead-on specific in calling Iran to halt all enrichment activity, according to the Times. While apologizing for making Europe safe while the American treasure of young lives was sacrificed, he sends a signal that nuclear proliferation is now OK. Not only OK, but while we are at it, let’s cut our arsenal and cut military spending.

Europe is, and has been, unable to defend their interests or borders because they directed their financial resources to socialism. Not we are following the same template. Who will protect us? Canada? Mexico? Europe?

I thought Obama would be bad for the U.S.; I had no idea how bad bad could be.
