Op-Ed: America's Deadly Roller Coaster

The show is over and the actors played their parts. Some were entertaining while others were boring. And some of the losers should never have been allowed to appear on stage. Their mere presence in the room was an affront to
Decency may still be evident, but for how long?
decent people, a shame to the organization and a boon to terrorists and killers of all colors. But to what else have we become accustomed than having the United Nations become the supplier of legitimacy for every war monger, civil-rights abuser and killer of his own people? When was the last time a despot, a thief, a blood-soaked dictator was denied his right to spew his filth and poison in front of a "united" audience?
Then again, other than heavy traffic, grid-lock, frayed nerves and havoc, which the diplomats'' cars and entourages create in New York, nothing else - definitely nothing creative or good - has ever come out of that rat-infested cesspool. And nothing useful is expected.
But there may still be decency left in some corners of the Earth, as many delegations walked out and refused to hear the venom, the lies and the war-mongering rhetoric. The decency may still be evident, but for how long? How long before the bloody religion of Islam takes control of Europe as it already controls most of the Middle East, parts of Africa and Asia, and spreads its hate throughout the world? How long?
Although the United States too was absent from the arena in some stages of the useless speeches, the president of the United States, by his mere presence at this assembly, gave legitimacy to the hate-fest. It seems that to Barack Obama, the other problems in today's complex and dangerous world are not as urgent as his desire to tear Israel apart.
Ignoring history, side-stepping the real issues preventing any possible peace between Israel and the so-called Palestinians, Barak Hussein Obama - the pro-Islam, ultra-leftist president of the once-greatest country in the world - chastised Israel and demanded that it retreat, give in and surrender to Arab demands. He has become the spokesperson, the lawyer and the advocate for the Arab demands against the Jews. Instead of standing up there in the UN and warning Hamas and Hizbullah and the rest of the terrorist conglomerates itching to destroy the Jewish State, President Obama gave them courage and ammunition. His insistence that Israel stop all construction is a demand which not even the Palestinians demanded nor hoped for, until the garlic-odor came out of his mouth.
The man is dangerous. What Obama has done to the US is not something one can do with impunity. He has offended Britain and other close allies, the US economy is in shambles (and let's stop blaming former President George Bush; the deep hole created by the leftist president and his tax-trigger-happy cohorts in the US congress, is something only a Democrat can do), the insurgency in Iraq is gaining momentum as America is losing ground, and in Afghanistan the winds of defeat are blowing hard. North Korea laughs at Obama, the mentally-deficient Iranian Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has only contempt for him, and Venezuela's Hugo Chavez thinks more of his dog then he does of the US president. Russia's Vladimir Putin and his stooge Dmitry Medvedev treat him as a nuisance, and dismiss his rhetoric and demands as nothing but posturing, as they call his bluff.
And he surrenders. And buckles under and reneges on American promises to allies and friends. His popularity and approval ratings, on which he has been riding high, are taking a nose dive as the saddle he sits on is suddenly less comfortable.
Oh, he knows how to talk and give speeches. As an orator, he's one of the best. His attempts at magic solutions to our most complex issues do not impress anyone. The veneer is wearing thin and the messianic aura with which his crazed followers boosted him onto the world's tallest pedestal, is dissipating quickly.
The United States is more vulnerable today than at any other time in its history. The war on terror has been eliminated. After all, why would Muslim extremists want to hurt the US when the President is such a supporter of that bloody religion? Do you feel safe now?
And where else can a failure garner points of success and accomplishment? Where should a man whose political knowledge is close to zero and his accomplishments are less than that, go for some bitterly-needed relief? What such a man can do - always - is blame the Jews for all that goes wrong. Thus by placing Israel on the chopping-block, Obama curries temporary favor with the Islamic world. After all, since the US could be one of the larger Islamic countries in the world (listen to his Cairo speech), by destroying Israel, the Muslim world will quickly learn to admire and love the US. Logical?
The man is a total moron. The president of the United States bowed - let me repeat that, bowed - to the king of one of the most radical, human-rights-abusing states in the world. Humility? No. It was an embarrassing stupidity and degradation for the president of the leading democracy in the world to bow to anyone, especially to the putrid ilk of Saudi Arabia.
He had the audacity to ask forgiveness for all of the ill treatment the US has directed towards Islam. 9-11, my friends, was thus a direct cause of America's mistreatment of the Arab world. When you clearly understand the twisted logic this president is bathing in, please let me know.
Therefore, the man is dangerous. In proposing the elimination of all nuclear weapons, this imbecile is stripping away the deterrent the US has against enemies looking to destroy it. Does anyone think for a moment that Russia will go along with disarmament? Or Pakistan? Or India? How about England and France? Whom is he kidding? And Iran? Now that Iran is within a trigger of having a nuclear bomb, does anyone think that it will ever
Like a chicken brought to the slaughter, Israel is being prepared by the president.
entertain the thought of getting out of the business? No. This is another tactic to be used against Israel's open secret in Dimona.
Which nation but Israel will be confronted (it's already being confronted, as this being written) with the demand that it allow inspectors into its nuclear bases, and will subsequently be urged and forced into eliminating its arsenal? Like a chicken brought to the slaughter, Israel is being prepared by the president of the United States.
He can not be trusted. Obama's words of supposed support are exactly that, supposed. In the long run, he poses a greater danger to Israel than does the lunatic of Iran. As far as Ahmadinejad is concerned, we know what he thinks, we hear what he plans and we are very much aware of where his unbridled lunacy can lead. Obama, on the other hand, says something, changes his mind and claims he was not clearly understood.
Not convinced of his true intentions? Read Obama's books. The man is a danger to the United States and a mortal danger to Israel, as he forces her to ride the speeding roller coaster to disaster.
