In a rare moment of mental clarity, I have determined our number one problem as a society.
See, in World War II, we were tough. We stormed the beaches, sacrificed our boys, and we won the war. The price was extremely high, but still we stayed with it. No one in America thought we were being mean, or that we shouldn’t kill civilians in the process. We were justified.
I used to think this was just a difference in generation… society churning out sissies instead of patriots. But, in my moment of clarity, I realized that the “Greatest” generation is no “greater” than the generations that followed… the ones that lost Korea, Vietnam, and in reality, Iraq, and now the war on terror.
Our technology and weaponry is too good.
That’s it. That’s my brilliant insight. Now, let me expound.
In World War II, and really in all previous wars through recorded history, people met on the battlefield… face to face. You had to look a guy in the eye before you shot him, stabbed him, or torched him. That’s how it had to be, because we didn’t have any alternatives.
But now, we don’t even need to send in ground troops if we don’t feel like it. We have stealth bombers, apache helicopters, and smart bombs. We can even shoot down our enemy’s missiles. For all intents and purposes, we’re invincible. Those are just our “little” weapons, and if they don’t work, we have enough nukes to blow up the entire world about 64 times.
The terrorists are facing us the only way they can. They’re sneaking around blowing stuff up. Granted, they’re targeting civilians and we’re trying not to kill any civilians. So, why is world opinion against us? Why does most of Europe and the entire DNC think we deserve what we’re getting?
It’s because we could crush the terrorists, along with about a jillion civilians, with nothing more than the push of a button. We don’t have to send our boys into harms way. We have the power, we have the technology.
We’re afraid to use it, because the mere fact that we have the power means people will always see us as a bully, throwing our weight around.
If Europe experienced 10% of what the terrorists did on 9/11, their entire liberal way of life would screech to a halt.
I’m tired of the sissy, liberal, “we can’t offend the sissy Europeans” attitude here in our country. Let’s stop being ashamed of our power. Let’s stop feeling guilty that we’re the dominant global influence. We can and should use our power to better the lives of Americans, and we should do it even at the expense of other countries.
You can be SURE that if Iran had our power, they’d use it. Don’t believe me? Just wait.
