All throughout 2008 we heard things like – Change we can believe in, and, Yes we can! After the highs and lows and the disastrous eight years of the Bush administration, America was led to believe that change was on the horizon.
Obama was going to begin a withdraw of our troops. Oh, excuse me, that’s President Obama. President Obama, would undo Bush’s illegal wiretapping, both international and domestic. Change We Can Believe In! But wait a minute – the war in Afghanistan is expanding – the drums of war still beat against Iran. Lets impose sanctions and embargos against them – that’ll teach the Islamic bastards!
While I applaud President Obama’s wish to talk to Iran, I don’t believe for a split second that weapons will never be used. Just like every great Empire that saw fit to intervene in the world’s affairs – Rome, Great Britain, France, Alexander the Great – they all fell, and America will too.
Most notably the Soviet Union crumpled like an aluminum can. If all these empires crumpled and fell through their foreign policies – why are we determined to follow in their paths?
