We are fighting three world wars.
Our enemies want to destroy us by any means. They’re bankrupting our nation—they’re attacking our beliefs—they’re shooting at us.
First, our economy is under attack from both domestic and foreign enemies.
Democrat-Socialists (Communists), inside our country, want to bankrupt our nation to destroy our free enterprise system.
For example, Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanky, who enjoys President Obama’s support, simply cannot stop printing dollars. This results in an increase in the price of oil to adjust to a devalued dollar. The world buys oil with dollars.
Higher gasoline prices will kill our economy. Without affordable energy, our country will surely default on the national debt.
If we allow it, these Communists will turn us all into a nation of beggars, and our enemies would love to bring us to our knees.
On the other hand, the Chinese devalue their currency and flood our nation with cheap exports. They employ a two-pronged strategy. Firstly, they finance a major portion of our national debt, and secondly, where they prevent our companies from selling in China.
I suspect it won’t be long before the Chinese come to collect.
In the second war we’re fighting, the Communists in our country create racial and class divisions to promote their leftist agenda and attack our nation’s fundamental beliefs. These attacks weaken our nation’s social and moral fabric.
These traitors want to weaken our Constitution. They want to tear down our financial institutions and end our way of life.
They’re confiscating our nation’s wealth and redistributing it to the ignorant and the lazy through welfare entitlements.
They know a bankrupt and divided nation cannot remain militarily strong.
Remember a bankrupt Soviet Union collapsed when they could no longer finance their armed forces.
Globally—our cold war enemies—Russia, China and Cuba have always attacked our beliefs in liberty. These countries use the United Nations, which we fund and host, to promote their politics, and undermine our national security.
Moreover, they have aligned their politics with the shooting war we’re fighting against terror to create more obstacles for our nation.
Their goals have not changed—they want to enslave us.
Take a brief look at a map of the Middle East and Near Asia. You’ll find it shows our combat troops encircled by a fanatical enemy.
Syria and Palestine flank our troops in Iraq, with Lebanon to the West and Iran to the East. All these nations are terrorist states.
In Afghanistan, our soldiers contend with Iran to the West and Pakistan, China and Russian satellites to the East.
Contrary to what Obama believes, these nations are not our friends.
The recent street riots in Egypt, Jordan and Tunisia can only lead to more problems for our troops in the area.
I’m not a military strategist, but I would say that in the Middle East our forces appear scattered and surrounded. This situation has the making of a potential catastrophe.
Interestingly, Wikileaks recently published that Saudi Arabian King Abdullah, the guy our president bows to, asked us to invade Iran. Other documents revealed the good king is funding Al Qaeda.
Funding Al Qaeda, huh?
Do you think that perhaps King Abdullah secretly wanted to trick us into scattering our forces in the region?
In South Korea, our troops have the Sea of Japan to their rear and a million men North Korean Army to their front.
It’s no secret North Korea and Iran has nuclear weapons. Contrary to what our government wants us to believe, there are no negotiations that can deter these countries from building, keeping and exporting these weapons.
Why, you might ask? Our President is weak. He’s a Community Organizer playing Eunuch-in-Chief.
Think about this: If you had a nuclear bomb will you readily give it up? You would be a fool if you did!
Having said that and continuing our world tour, in South and Central America there’s strong Cuban influence. Venezuela, Bolivia, Ecuador, Brazil and Nicaragua all turned Communist.
A former Marxist guerrilla fighter, Dilma Rousseff, became Brazil’s first woman president New Year’s (2011).
It’s no secret that Russia, China and Cuba supply highly advanced weaponry to all these countries.
Russia’s involvement, as with Iran, in the nuclear ambitions of Venezuela and Brazil should alarm our government leaders. Instead, we sign and ratify nuclear disarmament pacts, whoopee!
However, don’t be alarmed; I’m sure the nuclear fuel is only for “peaceful purposes.” (Read: Be very alarmed!)
In Central America, China is managing the Panama Canal’s Pacific Ports. The Chinese are widening the canal to navigate their super tankers, loaded with petroleum, across to the Atlantic Ocean.
Do you think these super tankers might one day also transport Chinese combat troops?
Then there’s our Southern border with Mexico, which only God knows how many terrorists cross over every day.
By now, I think you get the picture: We’re fighting half the world to survive as a people and as a nation.
Do you get the feeling, as I do, that our present troop strength may not be enough to fight all our enemies?
The wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have caused significant stress to our combat troops. Most soldiers have served two or more tours of combat duty. These assignments inflict mental, psychological and physical wounds, wounds a quick debriefing will not heal. The suicide rate among combat troops is at the highest that it has ever been.
And, instead of focusing on winning these wars, the Communist cowards running our government talk of withdrawing our troops in the name of peace.
Simply put, politicians cannot win wars.
If we’re not prepared to fight, our country will find peace alright; the peace that only the dead enjoy.
Our enemies are betting the economic and political wars our nation is fighting will cause us to lose the shooting war.
And, we won’t win the next shooting war, unless we build a stronger military force. Our country needs capable military leaders, who want to win wars.
We have the resolve and the weapons to win the war on terror. We must destroy our enemies, NOW.
Forget world opinion. Forget political correctness. Forget civility.
We must build a stronger military.
So I ask you, “Is it time to bring back the military draft?”
It is critical to our survival as a free nation to regain a powerful military stance in the world. We can’t achieve this without a military draft.
There are many benefits in bringing back the military draft:
1. It will strengthen our nation’s defenses.
2. It will ensure our young men and women are trained in the art of war.
3. It will make our nation better prepared to meet all future threats.
4. It will give our nation’s youth an opportunity to learn their civic duties and respect for their freedoms.
5. It will decrease unemployment of our young people.
6. It will allow our young to learn valuable occupational skills.
7. It will build character in our nation’s youth.
The military draft will result in our armed forces mirroring the makeup of our nation’s civilian population. A pluralistic armed force will make it more difficult for a president to use the armed forces to establish a dictatorship.
Russia, China, North Korea, Venezuela, Cuba, Iran, to name a few countries, all have a military draft.
Russia alone has a reserve army of about 20 million men and women. The reserve is made up of civilians.
All these soldiers continuously practice the art of war.
These countries are also our enemies.
In the book “The Prince” Machiavelli wrote that principalities with weak or no standing armies are always conquered.
Historically, success comes only to those that constantly practice the art of war.
Unfortunately, there’s a drawback to expanding our armed forces: Our nation’s debt.
One way to pay for a military expansion is to quickly win the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. This will allow us to bring the troops back and use the present war funding to increase troop strength.
We could also pay for the expansion by reducing funds to worthless Communist agencies such as the Endowment for the Arts, NPR and ACORN (I hear they’re still operating under another name). We could reduce funding of The TSA, and cut The EPA. We must insist this administration terminate all Czars and reduce the size of the federal government.
More importantly, we must stop sending aid to every nation in the world!
In the past, our nation has relied on technology to justify a smaller military force. However, our technology is no match to a fanatical enemy. An enemy ready and willing to die to further their political or religious ideology will always be a superior force.
I predict we will fight a major war in the not too distant future. I hope to God that I am wrong.
When and if that day comes, you will have three choices: surrender, die or fight. All three may mean death; however, if you fight you might live.
I prefer to fight.
