• Obama Apology Tour Continues – Visits Hiroshima On Eve Of Memorial Day

    President Obama didn’t formally apologize for dropping a nuclear bomb on Hiroshima, but he might as well have.

    The optics of his visit to the historic site on the eve of Memorial Day are a slap in the face of our veterans.

    Why not visit Auschwitz? Or how about Arlington Cemetery? Or just about anywhere other than Japan.

    Of course, the Japanese suffered from those nukes. No question about it, but maybe for OUR Memorial Day…OUR President could have given his speech at Pearl Harbor!

    He loves Hawaii enough. He could have played golf for a week, but he chose to talk about a nuke free world at the site where we actually dropped one.

    This President is committed to being embarrassed for what we have done as a country and is thoroughly convinced if he begs for forgiveness enough the world will love us.

    Newsflash! We don’t need the world to love us. We need the world to fear us enough to beg to be our friends.

    From CNN:

    Hiroshima (CNN)Barack Obama on Friday became the first sitting U.S. president to visit Hiroshima, where he called for a “world without nuclear weapons” during his remarks at the city’s Peace Memorial Park.

    Obama said that “71 years ago on a bright, cloudless morning, death fell from the sky and the world was changed. A flash of light and a wall of fire destroyed a city, and demonstrated that mankind possessed the means to destroy itself,” the President added during his address at the site of the first nuclear bombing.

    Obama was not expected to apologize for the U.S. action to hasten the end of World War II and he did not during his 20-minute-long remarks.

    “Why do we come to this place, to Hiroshima? We come to ponder the terrible forces unleashed in the not so distant past. We come to mourn the dead … their souls speak to us and ask us to look inward. To take stock of who we are and what we might become.”

    In the Hiroshima museum’s guest book before his speech, the President wrote that he hoped the world will “find the courage, together, to spread peace, and pursue a world without nuclear weapons.‎”

    What a fool. It is folly to pursue a world without nuclear weapons. You can’t put a genie back in the bottle.

    The world has nuclear weapons. We always will. Not dealing with that rationally is risking the lives of every person on the planet.

    Playing games with Iran. Getting snookered by Russia. Laughed at by…well…everybody. China is not afraid. They are building a set of new islands to have weapons on. North Korean threatens to nuke us. Russia buzzes our ships with fighters. ISIS beheads Americans, and rather than grow a spine to stand up to the violent nature that is the world, Obama focuses on forcing us to share the bathroom.
