Signs of the U.S.’s growing weakness and incompetence now come on a near daily basis.
The Obama administration releases five top terrorists in exchange for…one U.S. deserter. A headline in the June 19 St. Paul Pioneer Press (over an article by Craig Whitlock of the Washington Post) reads “U.S. balks at flexing its muscle in Iraq- too risky”. We want a ‘dialogue’ with Iran. We were stunned by Putin’s actions in the Crimea & the Ukraine.
And recently we learned that an American marine is still being held in a Mexican jail, nearly two months after being seized for accidentally making a wrong turn and entering Mexico while carrying his service weapon.
Surely, demanding Mexico release our marine isn’t ‘too risky’ for the Obama administration.
In fact, their actions to this end should have been… ‘fast and furious’.
The U.S. recently detained four armed Mexican policeman for accidentally entering this country, but promptly returned them to Mexico after 72 hours.
