Maybe you missed it but Obama did one of the most despicable things in his entire elected history just a few days ago while in Japan.
In a whirlwind tour of the Far East President Obama decided he need to take our country down yet another peg or two, or three.
One of the first things he did, and something we reported on, was lifting a ban on Vietnam’s ability to buy weapons from the U.S. military. So yes, because of Obama we’ll gladly be selling the communist regime some of our hand me downs.
After spending some time in Vietnam he puddled jumped over to Japan where he besmirched the memories of thousands of service men as he did the unthinkable in Hiroshima…
At the site of the first bombing Obama essentially apologized for dropping the bomb; forgetting the use of such a deadly weapon was undertaken only as a last resort.
Looks like Obama conveniently forgot how ruthless the Japanese were at defending their island and the decision to drop the bomb was only ever considered because the prospect of losing millions of Japanese and American lives in a full scale invasion was deemed to costly.
Speaking to an assembly of survivors and statesmen Obama said.
“Seventy-one years ago on a bright cloudless morning, death fell from the sky and the world was changed,” Obama said. “A flash of light and a wall of fire destroyed a city, and demonstrated that mankind possessed the means to destroy itself.”
“We come to ponder the terrible force unleashed in the not so distant past,” the president went on to say. “We come to mourn the dead, including over 100,000 Japanese men, women and children, thousands of Koreans, a dozen Americans held prisoner. Their souls speak to us.”
Obama went on to say “we’re not bound by genetic code to repeat the mistakes of the past. We can learn. We can choose.”
What’s amazing is how Obama can call dropping the bomb a mistake, even though the atomic bomb helped to usher America and the rest of the world into an era of peace never before enjoyed by any civilizations on the earth.
That’s just like him, isn’t it?
Our greatest achievements are nothing but cow dung to him.
And of all weekends to make such a callous statement he had to choose Memorial Day weekend. Oh the irony.
How does this make you feel?
