Obama amputates our nuclear arms
By: Charles Krauthammer
Under President Obamas new policy, however, if the state that has just attacked us with biological or chemical weapons is in compliance with the Non-Proliferation Treaty, explained Gates, then the U.S. pledges not to use or threaten to use nuclear weapons against it.
Imagine the scenario: Hundreds of thousands are lying dead in the streets of Boston after a massive anthrax or nerve gas attack. The president immediately calls in the lawyers to determine whether the attacking state is in compliance with the NPT. If it turns out that the attacker is up-to-date with its latest IAEA inspections, well, it gets immunity from nuclear retaliation. (Our response is then restricted to bullets, bombs and other conventional munitions.)
However, if the lawyers tell the president that the attacking state is NPT noncompliant, we are free to blow the bastards to nuclear kingdom come.
This is quite insane. Its like saying that if a terrorist deliberately uses his car to mow down a hundred people waiting at a bus stop, the decision as to whether he gets hanged or 100 hours of community service hinges entirely on whether his car had passed emissions inspections.
Apart from being morally bizarre, the Obama policy is strategically loopy. Does anyone believe that North Korea or Iran will be more persuaded to abjure nuclear weapons because they could then carry out a biological or chemical attack on the United States without fear of nuclear retaliation?
The naivete is stunning.

Obama is the cool kid’s president. He can do whatever he wants and stand offended, by the way. It’s so dandy.
Has anybody connected the dots between the recent assassination of the Iranian student scientist (the second to die of three scientists attacked) linked to nuclear weapons development and the sudden willingness of Iran to release the remaining two American hikers, who have been in prison for two years now?
Also: do you not get the shivers that the equally shared Democrat/Republican membership of the commission on spending cuts - if equally divided on a spending cut - would DEFAULT to the TREASURY (DEMOCRAT Geithner) deciding whom to cut and whom to pay? So the fall back for Democrats not agreeing is to pass the decision to THEIR man!
Even if Geithner resigns and fades into the sunset, Obama will put his own man into the position and so retains decision power so the Commission is a mockery and a farce (Not spelled FARS -smile) favoring the Dems. They have to say no to get what the want.
The devil is in the still unclear final details of a deal filled with similar landmines. I hope someone on the Republican side is paying attention to this.
IMHO Without exact knowledge of details, we are giving Obama the two most important concesskions. No renewed vote on the debt ceilng before the 2012 elections to interfere with his campaigning AND payment decisions - in reality - going SOLELY to him (or his). Disaster in the making.
We might need to remind our Republican Senators of this point and Congressmen that this would not be a victory.
Obama goes to a primary school to talk to the kids to get a little PR. After his talk he offers question time. One little boy puts up his hand and Obama asks him his name.
“Stanley,” responds the little boy.
“And what is your question, Stanley?”
“I have 4 questions:
First, why did the USA Bomb Libya without the support of the Congress?
Second, why are you President when John McCain got more votes?
Third, whatever happened to all of the jobs you were going to create?”
Fourth, why don’t you enforce our current immigration laws?
Just then, the bell rings for recess. Obama informs the kiddies that they will continue after recess.
When they resume Obama says, “OK, where were we? Oh, that’s right: question time. Who has a question?”
Another little boy puts up his hand. Obama points him out and asks him his name.
“Steve,” he responds.
“And what is your question, Steve?”
Actually, I have 6 questions:
First, why did the USA Bomb Libya without the support of the Congress?
Second, why are you President when John McCain got more votes?
Third, whatever happened to all of the jobs you were going to create?”
Fourth, why don’t you enforce our current immigration laws?
Fifth, why did the recess bell go off 20 minutes early?
And sixth, what the hell happened to Stanley?”
Before being Obambombed, Egypt was one of the most decent countries where they blamed the sinner - not his family.
A prime example of this was phony Palestinian, born in Egypt, Yasser Arafart, exiled after trying to overthrow the government some decades ago, had his wife and child granted “protected status” inside Egypt, with 24/7 government provided body guards.
Now with Obama’s buddies taking charge, they will not allow the prior civilized mindset to remain and fall to the lowest of brutal Islamic attitudes and allow a WOMAN to visit her husband's grave-site.
As much as I’d like to blame things on Obama (and he is to blame for so much) I’m not sure that the situation in Egypt can be pinned on him. Egypt was going to go up, eventually.
It turns out that the much derrided G.W. Bush was more right than people gave him credit for when he said, to paraphrase “all people share a longing in their hearts for freedom”.
I think most of the people initially protesting were sincerely seeking an end to a government they viewed as oppressive. Yes, Mubarak may have been a good friend to the USA, and nice to the families of the Arab ruling elite, but lets face it he was a brutal dictator to his own people.
I’m pretty sure if America had been ruled by one man for 30 years most of the people on Free Republic would not be singing his praises for whatever good deeds he had done lately.
Now, of course that doesn’t mean those seeking freedom will get what they wanted, or that the new boss won’t be worse than the old boss. Revolutions are messy affairs and often end up in tragedy. The Egyptian youth may even come to look back fondly on Mubarak’s time as a golden age, as many Iranians supposedly look back on the Shah.
Obama looked disengaged, confused, incompetent, and amaturish during the Egypt frackus. He didn’t look like the referee, man behind the plan, shot-caller, or steady hand.
Obama is barely relevant in American politics, consider how much less so he is in Egypt. The best thing that Obama could have done was to offer asylum to Mubarak and his family in the USA, so he could get his medical care. That would have been a magnanimous humanitarian gesture that sent the message that the USA does not forget its friends in their time of trouble.
What he probably could not have done is stopped the ouster of Mubarak once it started, that was up to the Egyptian military, and they apparently decided not to “go Syria” on the people of Egypt.
Obama’s blame comes from his almost fanatical support of the Moslem Brotherhood and Islamic efforts to impose a global Caliphate, which thus encouraged and launched earlier than needed, the events in Tunis, Egypt and the Libyan policy wbhich he has admitted on video was to link the Brotherhood political power in one big swathe.
Without this kind of support - requiring a removal of the leadership of Moslem but secular administrations - the reach for the freedoms you descrive might have eventually come about for teh reasons you give but not in one blundering, destructive setof “explosions” in such a sensitive region.
Noting how Obama has avoided support for suppressed Iranians, mass killings in Syria by IRANIAN led forces, even to the point of turning Saudi Arabia against him.
His ideology, like Jimmy Carter’s is not tempered with experience of dealing with anything beyond thuggish Chicago style neighborhood bullying.
In any event, in case you have missed this, please watch this superb video and presentation.
Barry is a Muslim and a Marxist. Its all bad. He has got to go.
In case you missed this.
What was the *exact* reason for not allowing Empress Farah to visit her late husband’s grave site? Because she is a woman, or?
If it is because of IRI’s influence via Moslem Brotherhood (a member of MB or its offshoot assassinated Anwar Sadat too?), I fear they may eventually even attack, vandalise and/or destroy the late Shah’s grave-site. Consider why the late Shah wasn’t permitted to be buried in Iran. BTW, where is Reza Shah (the late Shah’s father) buried now?
We already know that these IRI & MB types don’t even respect the dead. Unless the dead person is some murderer such as Khomeini or others belonging to the IRI. In which case, they build a grand shrine to them.
In their case, many of them share a longing in their hearts to freely exercise their unequalled thuggish behaviour under the banner of Issslam. That's why Islam has been "the religion of peace" since its inception.
humor related to thread topic . . . I think this kind of humor should make it through! LOL:
While riding down along the border this morning,
I saw a Muslim extremist fall into the Rio Grande River.
He was struggling to stay afloat because of all the guns and bombs he was carrying.
Along with him was a Mexican who was also struggling to stay afloat because of the large backpack of drugs that was strapped to his back. If they didn’t get help, they’d surely drown.
Being a responsible Texan and abiding by the law to help those in distress, I informed the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office and Homeland Security.
It is now 4 pm, both have drowned, and neither authority has responded.
I’m starting to think I wasted
Thanks for ping ...Watched this interview on ‘Fox’ yesterday and loved it. Glad to see It highlighted.
Moochelle a racist. Who would have dreamed? LOL!!
Good really chant? Last two lines bumper stickers? Posters?
And hat tip Lucy in case you missed it
A real (favorable) look back at Sarah Palin’s character and skills even back in 2008 and now they favor her for 2012
The kids filed into class Monday morning. They were very excited. Their
weekend assignment was to sell something, then give a talk on productive
Little Sally led off: “I sold girl scout cookies and I made $30” she said
proudly, “My sales approach was to appeal to the customer’s civil spirit and
I credit that approach for my obvious success.”
“Very good” said the teacher.
Little Jenny was next: “I sold magazines” she said, “I made $45 and I
explained to everyone that magazines would keep them up on current events.”
“Very good, Jenny” said the teacher..
Eventually, it was Little Johnny’s turn. The teacher held her breath .....
Little Johnny walked to the front of the classroom and dumped a box full of
cash on the teacher’s desk. “$2,467” he said.
“$2,467!” cried the teacher, “What in the world were you selling?”
Toothbrushes” said Little Johnny.
“Toothbrushes” echoed the teacher, “How could you possibly sell enough
tooth brushes to make that much money?”
“I found the busiest corner in town” said Little Johnny, “I set up a Dip &
Chip stand, I gave everybody who walked by a free sample.”
They all said the same thing, “Hey, this tastes like dog crap!”
Then I would say, “It is dog crap. Wanna buy a toothbrush? I used the
President Obama method of giving you something shitty, dressing it up so it
looks good, telling you it’s free, and then making you pay to get the bad
taste out of your mouth.”
Little Johnny got five stars for his efforts, bless his heart...

The excitement that was alluded to by one of two posters at ORYR may have been about someone who claims to have in their possession the actual airline flight passenger logs where it lists the Obama family on the manifest in 1961.
As you requested yesterday for a ping to the news when or if it came up.
This is posted on the Hawaiian KHON 2 News website:

I have a copy of the birth certificate. I will post this soon and then corroborating evidence barrack actually flew into Hawaii at 5 months of age with his parents. You see I figured out how to prove this because I obtained logs of flights from what was. PAN AM and there were only two airlines flying into Hawaii at that time. It was fairly easily once I found the archived records. This cover up involves major players in Hawaii and in the federal government. Believe or don’t believe me I don’t care. Obama was born in Kenya to father who was a communist agent trained in Moscow! “

Could you please elaborate more on what you have discovered and when it will be released?
“........ Pan Am kept flight logs and in the 5 To 10 months that pretty much were a window for his birth only a certain number of flights from Asia were recorded and passenger manifests will show people who arrived foreign passports and a black man and white woman. ........”

Things look to be going badly for Obama....
A whole bunch of articles with links on the main page of www.antimullah.com to simplify and try to ensure everyone sees them. In case you missed them around FR or via ping lists you can find them gathered there.
Covers the two recent fed court decisions against Obama and some other interesting matters including.
Have a wonderful weekend.
This illustrates the senselessness of the committee of 12 created for the Debt ceiling decisions.
Well, don't stop - we need a lot of you, pal. Stay well and safe. Call if you need help ... FRegards
Thanks for #2522 & #2524.
LOTS OF INTERESTING MATTERS!
Way too good....not to share!!!!!!!!
The OBAMA motto: We’ve got what it takes, to take what you’ve got!
The Soros pic is my favorite. That photo pretty well sums-up the situation.
Iran leaking Obama plans?
Geronimo raid put in doubt as to the killing of Osama but did get his son (photo).
The video at this link has to do with “Oathkeepers,” FARS.
Very good video and well worth watching but has nothing to do with Iran. ??
Did you click on the link? It takes you to another page with the Iran article and an Osama video.
Posts usually go up daily in some of the eight sections
and often combine subjects into one title. The main page tries to post a link to other sections to focus/facilitate access.
There is so much going on that even doing this may not cover that day’s or very recent events. Including other languages.
Alan writes, aggregates, emphasises, editorializes and adds graphics to improve presentation and focus of events from a wide range of sources, some very private, arriving in Emails
or by phone or in a meeting.
Without the facilities, human resources of contributors and private funding so DESERVEDLY making FR the top level site it is, AntiMullah does the best it can.
Sometimes confronting Google and AT&T Broadband restrictive actions to hide/filter or interfere with access to Broadband. Directly and to the ISP servers.
This could perhaps be a badge of honor that the site merits such attention.
Originally it was focused on the Islamic regime in Iran and now with his ardent support of Islam by Obama, with his embrace and inclusion of the Moslem Brotherhood into the White House and refusal to support the populace inside Iran in spite of brutal torture, suppression and murder by the regime in the TENS of thousands (!) compared to those in the hundreds in Egypt or Libya, he has included himself in the focus.
And his ignoring the 2,000 protesters killed in a very short time in Syria - mostly by some 20,000 Iranian Revolutionary Guards and Bassiji Suppression Forces - exceeding those of lives in Tunisia, Egypt and Tunisia combined also adds focus on his bias.
The same ideological biases that have led to our economic catastrophe.
His avid political and Marxist-Islamic ideology is not only destroying his so-called presidency, overriding our Constitution but also throwing our nation down the drain with this narcissisticly driven mindset.
He is UNCONSTITUTIONALLY creating law by Executive Order and trying to by-pass Congress for personal political gain to stem the bleeding away of Latino support by creating a backdoor immigration amnesty.
Instead of having to cope with terrorism from outside our shores, we seem to be facing a most powerful enemy from within our usurped White House.
Perhaps the apparently felonious gun running “Fast and Furious” project may help remove some of his radical political appointees and weaken his ablity to hurt us as a nation.
"Perhaps the apparently felonious gun running Fast and Furious project may help remove some of his radical political appointees and weaken his ablity to hurt us as a nation."
Let's hope that it does. There is no other administration in my lifetime that compares to this one on the corruption scale.
Thanks for your considerate heads up in case that was the snag.
In the meantime take a look at this INCREDIBLE attack on Exxon and drilling. Donald Trump just spoke on Huckabee how he has a ton of friends who want to drill but CANNOT get a PERMIT from the Obama administration.
He also mentioned how Obama is FUNDING Brazilian business (but NOT ours). A friend of Trumps wants to buy a private jet for about $3 million. He is buying a BRAZILIAN aircraft, not an American one!
Why? Because if he buys the Brazilian one he gets $1.5 MILLION tax credit from the USA government to incentivisen buying there than in America!!!
OBAMA is competing on behalf of Brazil AGAINST American business interests!! Hard to not repeat Perry’s comment about this Administration being almost “treasonous”.
Meantime, we have really, a coup 'going on' passing itself of as crisis. (Anyone see anything remotely patriotic on his latest 'busses-made-in-Canada' tour this week? An American flag maybe? Anything Obama said, that spoke to patriotic restoration that was authentic?)
"Barack Hussein Obama". Should not bear repeating...
A certain line in Becket comes to ind. I will not quote it though..
Big subject gathered in one place with lots of links.
Obama’s Bounel Social Security number has been SCRUBBED off the databases but screen shots still exist and property address PIN changes for his home, too.
Criminal activity floating up like dead fish.
Are there any cutting edge forces, groups attacking such traitorousness?
Or have most become MSM mentality co-opted, fossilized, in-grown, neutered, watered down, addicted to eating their own etc?
I just heard of the red and black alliance on the radio myself, last Friday??
I forgot if it was RUSH or local radio!
Interesting article from Columbus, Ohio, about Somali radicals in our area. Make no mistake, they are here. http://www.dispatch.com/content/stories/local/2011/08/21/a-delicate-dance.html
Law-enforcement try to engage the local Somali community
Law-enforcement agencies are trying to engage the local Somali community but are wary of potential radicalism. Some Somalis, in turn, say theyre tiring of the distrust.
Sorry for the loss of formatting about the Red and Black article during transfer.
Would appreciate prayer. Have a slight fever--99.7--achy, chills . . . no clue why. Started feeling tired last half of morning service.
The RED & BLACK is THRIVING in the USA with Marxist-Islamist "hood" Oba-Hussein trying to run the show and shove in the direction of the Moslem Brother-hood.
The Unholy Alliance of Red and Black A similar combination of left-wing and right-wing emotional plague is very common in the Islamic world.
Many years ago, the Shah of Iran referred to this phenomenon as "the unholy alliance of red and black." [Reference 11] Atheistic leftists and right wing Islamic fanatics worked together in Iran to overthrow the government starting in the late 1940s. After thirty years they finally succeeded.
The Shah had modernized Iran [though with a fair amount of cruel and unwise ruthlessness, imho], given women full rights, and led the successful efforts of the Muslim nations to obtain full market price for their oil.
Nonetheless, Iranian and American leftists successfully manipulated Islamic and Western public opinion by portraying the Shah as a dictator and a puppet of the United States who was holding back democracy in Iran, thus preventing the West from doing anything to stop the Ayatollah Khomeini's takeover and subsequent fascist regime.
[That had to be part of the script and Peanut head played his traitorous part well--if evil can be played well.]
Similar efforts are underway in Saudi Arabia today.
The mass sociological forms of the emotional plague comes in two varieties, the emotional plague on the right, such as the Nazis, which we call "black fascism" and the emotional plague on the left, such as the communists, which we call "red fascism." The colors red and black which are used in this terminology are those which have traditionally been used as symbols by left-wing and right-wing revolutionaries, respectively.
More recently we have used the term "pseudo-liberal" to refer to the emotional plague character on the left, such as the communist and others on the left who function virulently by posing as liberals.
As Konia points out [Reference 9], the Islamic fanatic murderers and Islamic extremist religious leaders are typically black fascists.
However, there is often a synergistic relationship between black and red fascism. Failure to recognize this synergy can lead to disastrous miscalculations.
[ABSOLUTELY INDEED.] It is often said that Britain and France underestimated the threat posed by Hitler, which is true, but Britain and France's most disastrous miscalculation was in assuming that the Soviet Union would fight with them against the Nazis. In August 1939, the world had finally decided to confront Hitler over his desire to invade Poland.
[CHARADE START TO FINISH. Hitler was set up by the tyrannical oligarchy to help consolidate their power and nudge the world more toward overt globalism. They also hoped to diminish the population of the planet significantly. A certain Grandfather funded Hitler liberally to help him get going good.]
This was the last chance to stop Hitler and to avoid world war. At that crucial moment in history, Stalin treacherously allied himself with Hitler and Europe's hopes of successfully stopping Hitler at an early stage came tumbling down like a house of cards.
[Just part of the script. They did NOT WANT to avoid war. They'd worked hard setting it up and staging it and they were determined to have their thrilling blood bath. Hell likes that stuff.]
For two years, from August, 1939 until July, 1941, the communists of the world did everything they could to stop the democratic nations from fighting the Nazis, just as the extreme political left, the pseudo-liberals, today are vocal in attempting to stop us from fighting the terrorists.
[True enough. More smoke, mirrors, good-cop/bad-cop games . . . yet another game of bread and circuses to distract from the growing tyrannies under the table . . . also with real teeth--just not lions.]
The Communist Party of the U.S.A. claimed that fighting Hitler was merely defending capitalism and actively campaigned against the U.S. giving any aid to Britain, although this cost the Communist Party much of their American membership.
Communist activities in the U.S. included strikes at American weapons factories. In France, the Communist Party worked to persuade French soldiers, on their own soil, not to fight against the Nazi invaders. At the time, the British ambassador to Berlin noted that Stalin personally admired Hitler. [Reference 10]
[Yeah, evil enjoys evil . . . until it comes time to decide who is top dog.]
The red fascist is incapable of expressing his aggression in a gut level way and of communicating a high, sustained emotional charge, thus he admires the black fascist's ability to do these things. Conversely, the black fascist expresses himself emotionally, sometimes in a nearly incoherent way. This can be seen in some of Osama Bin Ladin's speeches and in Hitler's diplomatic communiqu�s, which are emotionally charged, but don't hold together logically.
[Wellllllll, what can one expect without a very scripted teleprompter and lots of psych-ops crafted treasonous blather!]
Thus the black fascist benefits from the red fascist's ability to use logical arguments to persuade liberals into immobilizing any nation's effort to forcefully oppose the black fascist's aggression.
Eventually the red fascist and the black fascist will turn on each other and one or the other will prevail, but they are temporarily united as one in their hatred of life.
[INDEED. REBELLION HAS A DEATH FIXATION AND A DEATH-GRIP ON THE FASTEST TRAIN THERE. The more horrible, more tyrannical, more bloody, the better. Their boss--the king of hell has his preferences.
This is seen today in the synergistic action of the covert hatred of America on the part of the pseudo-liberal and the overt hatred of America on the part of the Islamic fanatic. A similar combination of left-wing and right-wing emotional plague is very common in the Islamic world.
I would like to emphasize again that the emotional plague succeeds only to the extent that it induces confusion and immobilization in its victims. This occurs as a matter of course in every emotional plague attack and takes many different forms, but there is one form that was particularly relevant on a mass scale in the 20th century and which will be even more important in the 21st.
[A very astute observation, imho.]
Fatal Attraction: The Sadomasochistic Relationship Between Fanatics and American Liberals It is important that the comments I am about to make not be misunderstood as a personal or moralistic attack on liberals. A large proportion, perhaps half, of the general population has a biophysically liberal character structure, and the great majority of these individuals are decent people.
[Depends on what one calls decent. The rebellion, arrogance, traitorousness, hidden ruthlessness . . . selfishness . . . are still bound up in their hearts and priorities no matter what whitewash they slather themselves with. Their priorities, values and actions are still deadly regardless of how 'egalitarian' they are made to sound.
It is the nature of man. Scripture says the heart is deceitfully wickedl--who can know it. Unbridled in a liberal . . . it's only a matter of time until it is expressed ruthlessly.]
By liberal character structure, we mean one who primarily uses the intellect to defend himself against disturbing feelings. The liberal makes his own contribution to society, and was a prime force behind such positive events as the Enlightenment, the separation of church and state, and the eradication of slavery.
[And what a mixed bag all that was! The fruit of the 'Enlightenment' or THE DARKENING . . . trashed God and a relationship with God and has left us killing our children and the inconveniently old.]
I believe that when confronted in a respectful and objective way, most liberals are capable of being concerned about the fact that their liberal structure makes them susceptible to certain forms of infection by the emotional plague.
[Perhaps . . . when and if they aren't all that energized by such issues to begin with.]
Because this process is contagious (and dangerous), it is important to deal with it frankly. The type of emotional infection that will be described is not perpetrated by the true liberal but by the pseudo-liberal. However, the true liberal is vulnerable to temporary bouts of the infection.
If the reader regards himself as a liberal but finds that the following comments do not apply, then he probably is not as liberal as he thinks. If these comments do apply, then I hope the reader will find them useful. It should also be said that biophysical conservatives, particularly those with a degree of masochism and those who work in strongly liberal environments such as academia and the mental health professions, can also be susceptible to the types of reactions and thinking that will be described.
Konia describes a functional attraction between the masochism of the liberal and the sadism of the Islamic fanatic. It is worthwhile to describe in more detail what is meant by masochism. Contrary to popular belief, masochism does not mean the enjoyment of pain, but rather a specific way of functioning that generally results in a person becoming stuck in a state of chronic suffering.
[A matter of degree, imho]
This can be illustrated with a clinical example of masochism in the realm of individual emotional functioning. Imagine a woman married to an abusive, sadistic man. If she stays with him and cannot defend herself it is often because of a masochistic attitude on her part. This attitude arises either because of previously existing masochism in her character structure which perhaps put her in the marriage in the first place, or because she has lapsed into a masochistic pattern as a result of the relationship.
What we mean by masochism can be illustrated by the following scenario: Suppose her husband hates it when his beer is not cold. He comes home, asks for a beer; she serves it to him and he explodes when it is not cold enough. He beats her severely and storms out of the house.
Rather than pack her bags and leave, she resolves that from now on she will be very careful and make sure his beer is always cold. She remembers that she bought the beer that morning, but didn't put it in the refrigerator until 20 minutes before he came home and berates herself because, "He's made it clear how important it is to him that his beer be cold. I knew that, but I screwed-up anyway."
This type of self criticism is masochistic. It involves a mis-perception of the world based on the inability to muster the aggression necessary to defend herself, to live alone, or to find a decent, non-sadistic husband. One could not change her opinion of the situation by pointing out the fact that many non-sadistic husbands in her community also like their beer cold, but in the same situation half of them would do no more than complain a little and then forget about it, and the other half would back down when their wives informed them that from now on they "can put their own damn beer in the refrigerator."
Anyone attempting to help the abused wife to leave the situation would first have to deal with her helplessness, which would cause her to initially reject any solution as impossible. "I can't call the police, that would only embarrass me and inflame him." Then move out and get your own apartment. "I can't earn enough money for an apartment and he might stalk me." Then go to a women's shelter. "It would be too upsetting for the kids to change schools in the middle of the year," etc. etc.
Even a well documented example of a previous wife who left the same man, stood up to his threats and made him leave her alone may not change the masochistic attitude.
[Police have persistently told me it takes about 7 calls to the police over a long span of time before the wife is remotely willing to take healthy action.]
Finally, even if all considerations could be dealt with there would still be a belief that any expression of aggressive self-defense will be clumsy, stupid, awkward, and doomed to failure.
"All that it takes for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing." - Edmund Burke
I think he was set up to be a scape-goat and trashed for succeeding at all the destructiveness his bosses ordered him to accomplish . . . when it gets bad enough.
