Change We Can't Survive

Obama's not yet started his "reign" and the testing of him has begun... Biden was correct.

Warfront with Jihadistan: Testing the new guy

"I'm the only major candidate who opposed this war [in Iraq] from the beginning... [A]s president I will end it... I will cut investments in unproven missile defense systems... I will not weaponize space... I will slow our development of future combat systems... I will set a goal of a world without nuclear weapons... I will not develop new nuclear weapons..." Unfortunately, those words are not a rehash of some 1980 Jimmy Carter campaign pledge, but straight from the mouth of the current president-elect, the man entrusted to defend our nation. Terrifying to reflect upon, they represent the views of a man totally detached from the political and military realities of the world and unable to see the shots already being fired across his bow by our enemies.

After months of falling violence, this week saw a sudden increase in bombings in Iraq, with dozens being killed and wounded. The violence comes as U.S. and Iraqi officials try to reach a final security agreement that would keep U.S. troops in Iraq until 2011, but that has drawn sharp criticism from the majority Shiite community.

Interestingly, Iran is also majority Shiite, and Obama, who has pushed for diplomatic talks with Iran, is blind if he doesn't think this increase in Iraq violence is a direct Iranian challenge to his incoming regime. As if to dare Obama to pull American troops out of Iraq, Iran, during war games near the Iraqi border this week, test-fired two new missiles capable of striking Israel.

Combined with Russia's announcement that it will deploy missiles near Kaliningrad to counter the U.S. missile defense system in Poland, and North Korea's declaration Wednesday that it won't allow inspectors to examine its nuclear complex, it is obvious that the world's thugs are testing Obama early -- just as his running mate Joe Biden predicted. They already think him a weakling, and given Obama's statements, they appear to be right. The Obama regime could be a direct threat to our country. Change we can believe in? How about change we can't survive?"
