Lessons Not Learned

By Alden L. Benton

In the classic television animated series The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle, Bullwinkle the moose tells Rocket J. Squirrel, “Hey Rocky, watch me pull a rabbit out of my hat.”  To which Rocky replies, “That trick never works,” as some wild creature pops out of the hat.

It was never a rabbit.  Never!

Now, fast forward from the simple, innocent, days of Rocky and Bullwinkle (1959-1964), and consider today’s complicated and dangerous world.  Just like Bullwinkle and his magician’s hat, the political left here and abroad, is trying to pull a non-existent rabbit out of their magic hat.

According to The Washington Times, France’s defense minister has joined the United States in an effort to “open peace talks with the Taliban, saying a proposed Taliban liaison office outside Afghanistan would provide a venue for those within the radical Islamic movement who are willing to explain their positions.”

What part of global jihad in the quest for a global caliphate ruled by the iron fists of mullah’s and Sharia Law, does the Left not understand?  Radical Islam has made its goals crystal clear: become a Muslim, or become their slave.  They leave no room for discussion.

While the Left, under the patient guidance of B. Hussein Obama, has degraded, defiled, and weakened the United States, he now seeks to concede our safety to placate the enemies of freedom and liberty.

This is the same weak response to a similar crisis some 32 years ago – The Iran Hostage Crisis.  For 444 days, from November 4, 1979 until January 20, 1981, 52 Americans were hostages in Iran while Jimmy Carter bumbled and fumbled until finally, under intense public pressure, he micro-managed an ill-conceived rescue raid that failed in an Iranian sand storm in April, 1980.

For those too young to remember, Jimmy Carter was also a warm and fuzzy, incompetent, feel good do-gooder Democrat who was, and still is, incapable of using the good sense God gave him. Its déjà vu all over again.  (My apologies to the great Yogi Berra)

Talk, talk, and more talk.  Americans were still prisoners.

Enter Ronald Reagan.  Immediately upon the inauguration of President Reagan in 1981, the Iranians released the hostages.  Why, because they respected Reagan.  They knew Reagan would beat them to death with a big stick, rather than talk them to death.

Today, America is perceived as weak, and world leaders consider our president an incompetent fool. 

The insurgents in Iraq were on the run, until B. Hussein told the world exactly when we would leave.  Now violence there has increased.

Now the Taliban patiently wait until the Left, and its chattering mouthpieces, force us to capitulate.  Talking to them will prove nothing.

The Europeans and the Russians laugh behind our back while China, Iran, and North Korea, openly challenges us on the world stage.

In the Obama administration, negotiation consists of patting the enemy on the back, letting them know it is all going to be all right, letting them have everything they want, all while the president bows and kisses their a**.

To ensure the political, economic, and social survival of the United States at home, and of its principles and power for peace in the world, one thing MUST happen in 2012.  B. Hussein Obama and his band of crooks, cronies, tax cheats, and all the other assorted leftists with a (D) behind their name, MUST be removed from power.

Its time to pull an eagle out of the hat and take America back.

It is past time for a regime change.
