The Coming Brave New World

In a recent conversation with a relative, I mentioned that sometime after Barry is elected, the Europeans and much of the rest of the non-Islamic world will wake up to the fact that the Americans are getting out of the defense business and that they (the rest of the Western world) will have to fend for themselves.

My relative allowed that it would be a not-altogether-bad thing for the Europeans to defend themselves. In theory it would be a good thing, but I would remind him and all like-minded liberals about the last time the Europeans were allowed to play with dangerous weapons: the first half of the 20th century which produced the carnage known as World War I; the rise of communism, fascism,and nazism; then the carnage known as World War II and the Holocaust. That’s the reason that post-war Europe (and Japan) outsourced their defense to the Americans and adopted pacifism with cradle-to-grave welfare, underwritten by the American taxpayers who picked up the defense tab.

Obamadom seeks to transform America into another European-style, pacifist welfare state (where the “wealth is spread around”). Western leftists rejoice at the thought and like to believe that Iran and the rest of the Islamists, who, according to liberal theorists, are merely motivated by the desire to defend themselves against American (and Israeli) “imperialism,” and will respond to the kinder, gentler new Age of Obama by closing down their terrorist networks and nuclear facilities.

Sounds like the 1930’s all over again, except instead of Churchill and Roosevelt, we will have Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid (with a filibuster-proof Senate majority) an Obama-smitten media, and the Eurabians.

As George Orwell once said: “People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.” We’re about to see a world in which the only “rough men” will be the ones trying to destroy us.
