Posted on 07/27/2014 6:03:04 PM PDT by Starman417
There is an undefined point, when a government is so corrupt and incompetent, that citizens will no longer be willing to defend it.
Iran or maybe Obamas chief handler Valerie Jarrett, the Iranian Mole, seems to be playing our president, he who has no experience at anything, like the proverbial fish on a line, but just maybe, one of Irans homicidal maniacs has read the writing of old Sun Tzu. Its a cinch, none of our presidents people have a clue on anything but ideological rhetoric, and the followers of old Karl Marx have never been good at foreign policy.
The quotes have been there to read for 2400 years, but some people are too busy hobnobbing with celebrities and fund raising to be concerned with defeating out enemies. Sun Tzu was a master at defeating the enemy; in fact, he considered it foolish to engage his troops, until he was assured of victory.
He understood warfare and he was an extremely successful general and tactician. The quotes from his book will verify this fact:
There is no instance of a nation benefitting from prolonged warfare.
Oh, yes, its true, Obama isnt interested in victory; in fact, he maintains that al Qaeda and the Taliban arent our enemies.
All war is based on deception
It would only be wishful thinking to believe Obama is trying to lure our enemies into complacency to kill them; however, it might not be the enemy, he is trying to lure into complacency.
Sun Tzu believed the opportunity for defeat is determined by your own actions, strategy, and tactics.
The opportunity to secure ourselves against defeat lies in our own hands, but the opportunity of defeating the enemy is provided by the enemy himself.
Hence that general is skillful in attack, whose enemy does not want to defend: he is skillful in defense, whose enemy does not know what to attack.
We are a nation of lions led by a buffoon and his comedic opera troupe. We face not only economic hardship and the possibility of economic meltdown, but people are awakening to the realization that our finest military, is having its officer ranks purged. Is our military becoming the vanguard for international Socialism? Is it Obama or is Jarrett testing the water to see how far and how fast the American people can be pushed, before they say enough is enough.
Now, we play the game of letting Iran acquire nuclear weapons, while we degrade our own weapon systems and leave Israel to ponder their own annihilation.
Anecdotal Marine Story, one that happened many times:
Young Marines often half/joked when challenged on perimeter:
Who goes there? a Marine on Perimeter calls out in challenge.
Smedley Butler, you mother fer said a frustrated Marine coming in.
Yea, right, and Im the Commandant, replied the Marine on Perimeter.
It was low-level security among tired Marines, but none of them knew who Smedley Butler really was or of his history beyond his active duty days. He was the Marines Marine, no one can discount that fact, but when he retired, he viewed the American political scene with a jaundiced eye.

I’m not willing to make it money to spend on things that I really don’t agree with. I quit my job of 32 years and took Social Security a year after Obama got elected. I quit working because I couldn’t stand the thought of sending money for Obama to give away.
I think Rome profited from prolonged warfare.
Critical mass, a critical insight. The purity of the American Dream is the ignition required to ignite the explosion that will destroy the left and establish our Manifest Destiny as a Christian culture.
Yes we are heading to critical mass alright and its not going to be good for Obooboo and company.
Oh my gosh! Statement of the year, hell decade.
Not even sure where to start. Our gubbamint is everything our founding fathers warned us against.
We are living under soft tyranny at the very least.
I think it’s just the opposite.
The demographic tide is very much against us.
Plouffy was bragging in a WSJ op ed how how Hispanic “imports” will flip Arizona, Georgia, and eventually Texas to blue and lock in Dems for the forseeable future.
A private with a machine gun can can extinguish a whole army of Samurai warriors without breaking a sweat....

The pax romana doesn’t negate the centuries of war conducted by Rome, before and after the Pax.
They would send their armies out of winter camp and fight old enemies or expand and seek new ones.
If you’re not familiar with Roman history, I can refer you to some reading.
Ditto. I quit almost a year before, so far as they know.
I’ve seen that expression on Valerie’s face before somewhere. Hold on a minute, it’ll come to me where...oh, yeah, I know. On the Jumbotron at Angel Stadium when the Halos are trying to rally.
The die is cast.
I don’t think you and I think critical mass means the same thing. :-)
At some point sheeple are going to say, “Wait, the gubmint and the president don’t have to follow laws, well neither do I.”
