I doubt President Obama has been able to pull himself away from the fundraisers he’s been busy with this week to read the papers. That’s where he claims he finds out about things like the IRS criminally abusing taxpayers, or the Justice Department violating the Constitutional rights of reporters like Fox News’ James Rosen, or the immigration disaster on our southern border, but if he could break away just a moment from fundraising and photo-ops eating hamburgers and from planning his long August vacation, he might find out the world is on fire and could really use some leadership. This week, Israel finally had enough of the terrorist strikes against their civilian population and launched a ground campaign into Gaza, the hell hole of Hamas. Twice Hamas violated a cease fire agreement and continued to launch rockets over 80% of the Israeli population. The best we got from the White House was a ridiculous admonition for “both sides to restrain themselves.” If 225 million Americans(which would be 80% of our population) were having rockets explode over our heads, do you think we’d appreciate someone telling us to restrain ourselves? Hamas is a terrorist organization, not a legitimate government. Israeli PM Netanyahu bluntly explained the difference between the so-called “2 sides." It is indeed a tragedy that several hundred residents of Gaza have been killed. It’s an even greater tragedy that the savages who operate Hamas use innocent people as human shields to protect their weapons. None of those Palestinians would have died if Hamas didn’t insist on acting like vicious mad dogs intent on making mayhem. And please don’t buy the lie that if Israel would give up some more land, it would be okay. Israel lives on 1/6 of 1% of the amount of land possessed by Arabs and Muslims. There are 300 million Middle Eastern Muslims and Arabs to only 5.5 million Israeli Jews. The idiotic proposal to give away more Israeli land is to assume that if you let the mad dog get closer to your face, the less likely they are to bite. Israel has a legitimate right to the land and a legitimate right to defend itself. It is the only Middle Eastern country that gives women full rights; the only one who outlaws honor killings of women; it’s built 6 universities, 20 community colleges, and 166 clinics for Palestinians between 1979 and 2006. Israel accommodates 15 different religions. How many Christians, Hindus, or Buddhists are free to worship in Pakistan, Iran or Iraq, Saudi Arabia or Gaza? Hamas is a puppet of Iran. The barrage of rockets fired into Israel is the pre-game for the real target—the United States. If we pussyfoot around now and have nothing better to offer than telling everybody to just get along, we’ll rue the day when the Iranian terrorists turn loose in the United States and we’ll wonder why we never bothered to control our borders or our brains. A President showing leadership would announce that since Hamas is firing rockets at Tel Aviv, we will move our embassy to Jerusalem, the capital of Israel where it’s safer; we’d urge an escalation of building Jewish neighborhoods in Judea and Samaria so that those families living amidst their Arab neighbors would live in a neighborhood less likely to be targeted. We’d announce that there wouldn’t be another dime of US taxpayer money going to the PA until they publicly renounced and separated from Hamas and until they recognized Israel’s right to a safe and secure homeland. I don’t say these things because I’m Jewish, because I’m not. But I believe there’s a difference between good and evil, and I would never tell good to restrain itself nor treat evil as if were the same as good. I have spoken to friends in Israel every day over the past 12 days of attacks . I admire their patience and their hesitation to escalate their defense of their children that might result in the death of someone else’s. But enough is enough, and America shouldn’t keep the world guessing as to who it will stand with—the terrorist organization Hamas, or an elected democracy, Israel.

    Is Russia Preparing For War With The United States?

    September 12, 2014 | Michael Snyder

    Share this article


    Did you know that two Russian bombers practiced launching cruise missiles at the United States from a spot in the North Atlantic just the other day? And did you know that Russia is spending massive amounts of money to build and test new nuclear weapons systems? Meanwhile, the Obama administration is doing absolutely nothing to upgrade the U.S. nuclear arsenal.

    Our nuclear officers are actually still using floppy disks and other computer technology from the 1960s. The size of the U.S. nuclear arsenal has been reduced by about 95 percent from the peak of the Cold War, and Barack Obama has spoken of even more dramatic reductions. Obama is snoozing even as a Russian general speaks of the need to “spell out the conditions under which Russia would launch a preemptive nuclear strike” against the United States.

    Obama appears to be entirely convinced that a nuclear war between the U.S. and Russia is not even a remote possibility. He better be right, because we are definitely not prepared for one.

    Even with everything that has happened between the United States and Russia lately, most Americans still believe that “the Cold War is over” and that Russia presents absolutely no threat to us.

    But Russia is behaving as if the Cold War is still very much on. You probably didn’t hear a peep about it from the mainstream media, but just the other day a couple of Russian bombers simulated launching cruise missiles at us from the North Atlantic. The following is an excerpt from an excellent article by Bill Gertz…

    Two Russian strategic bombers conducted practice cruise missile attacks on the United States during a training mission last week that defense officials say appeared timed to the NATO summit in Wales.

    The Russian Tu-95 Bear bombers were tracked flying a route across the northern Atlantic near Iceland, Greenland, and Canada’s northeast.

    Analysis of the flight indicated the aircraft were conducting practice runs to a pre-determined “launch box”—an optimum point for firing nuclear-armed cruise missiles at U.S. targets, said defense officials familiar with intelligence reports.

    And Russia is spending money as if a nuclear confrontation with the U.S. is a very real possibility. In fact, Russian President Vladimir Putin has committed to a “weapons modernization program” that is going to cost the equivalent of 540 billion dollars…

    Putin said Russia’s weapons modernization program for 2016-2025 should focus on building a new array of offensive weapons to provide a “guaranteed nuclear deterrent;” re-arming strategic and long-range aviation; creating an aerospace defense system and developing high-precision conventional weapons.

    He would not elaborate on prospective weapons, but he and other officials have repeatedly boasted about new Russian nuclear missiles’ capability to penetrate any prospective missile shield.

    The Kremlin has bolstered defense spending in the past few years under an ambitious weapons modernization program that runs through 2020 and costs the equivalent of $540 billion.

    You don’t spend that kind of money just for the fun of it.

    Putin is deadly serious about being able to fight (and win) a war against the United States.

    Of course nobody on either side actually hopes that such a war will happen. But most wars are won before a single shot is fired, and right now Russia is working very hard to make sure that it will have the best chance possible of coming out on top in any future conflict.

    For example, Russian media is reporting that 60 percent of all Russian nuclear missiles will have radar-evading capability by 2016…

    Russia’s Defense Ministry plans to complete the rearmament of Strategic Missile Forces within six years. “By 2016, the share of new missile systems will reach nearly 60%, and by 2021 their share will increase to 98%. At the same time the troop and weapon command systems, combat equipment will be qualitatively improved, first of all — their capabilities for the suppression of antimissile defense will be built up,” Defense Ministry’s RVSN spokesman Colonel Igor Yegorov told ITAR-TASS on Friday.

    But of greatest concern is the new generation of nuclear-powered attack submarines armed with long-range cruise missiles that Russia has been developing.

    Just this week, Russia conducted a successful test of the new submarine-launched Bulava intercontinental nuclear missile…

    Russia carried out a successful test of its new Bulava intercontinental nuclear missile on Wednesday and will perform two more test launches in October and November, the head of its naval forces said.

    The armed forces have boosted their military training and test drills since the start of the conflict in eastern Ukraine, which Russia considers in its traditional sphere of influence.

    The 12-meter long Bulava, or mace, has undergone numerous tests, some successful, and can deliver an impact of up to 100 times the atomic blast that devastated Hiroshima in 1945.

    Each one of these missiles weighs more than 36 tons and has a range of more than 5,000 miles.

    But in a future conflict, they would likely only have to travel a short distance.

    That is because Russia has developed super silent attacks subs that are virtually undetectable when submerged.

    Did you know that Russia is building submarines that are so quiet that the U.S. military cannot detect them? These “black hole” submarines can freely approach the coastlines of the United States without fear of being detected whenever they want. In fact, a “nuclear-powered attack submarine armed with long-range cruise missiles” sailed around in the Gulf of Mexico for several weeks without being detected back in 2012. And now Russia is launching a new class of subs that have “advanced stealth technology”. The U.S. Navy openly acknowledges that they cannot track these subs when they are submerged. That means that the Russians are able to sail right up to our coastlines and launch nukes whenever they want.

    Most Americans don’t realize this, but Russian subs can come cruising right up to our coasts without us knowing about it and launch missiles which will start hitting our cities within just a few minutes.

    And if you do not think that this can ever happen, perhaps you should consider what a Russian general said about a preemptive nuclear strike just the other day…

    A Russian general has called for Russia to revamp its military doctrine, last updated in 2010, to clearly identify the U.S. and its NATO allies as Moscow’s enemy number one and spell out the conditions under which Russia would launch a preemptive nuclear strike against the 28-member military alliance, Interfax reported Wednesday.

    Russia’s military doctrine, a strategy document through which the government interprets military threats and crafts possible responses, is being revised in light of threats connected to the Arab Spring, the Syrian civil war and the conflict in Ukraine, the deputy chief of the Kremlin’s security council told RIA Novosti on Tuesday.

    Meanwhile, the Obama administration has discussed reducing the size of our already neutered strategic nuclear arsenal down to just 300 warheads.

    Let us hope and pray that we never see a nuclear war between the United States and Russia.

    Because if one does happen, there is a very strong possibility that America will not be the winner.

    I agree with everything you have said. All true Christians that know their Bible know what the final out come for Israel and the Jewish people will be, praise God He will be there with Israel and all those that hate the Jewish people I would not want to be in their place.

    First let me tell you I am a conservative republican and I believe that Israel has the right to defend itself, I really believe that at this point they cannot convince me that they are not targeting civilians. I cannot continue to defend Israel blindly. You can miss oops! a few hundred but we are up to thousands by now. Were there any terrorists playing with the kids playing soccer in the beach... not! They are abusing the power and the military is shooting on civilians. People cannot continue to hear the same excuses for some of these unnecessary deaths. The enormity of the disparity of deaths just shows how the punishment is way out of proportion.
