Future Historians Will Ask These Questions

 

Will future historians look back on this period in human history and question why our leaders didn’t address certain issues with what seem like pragmatic and simple solutions?

Here’s three pressing questions to current events with seemingly obvious solutions and yet our leaders fail to act accordingly. Why?

1. Why Allow Iran to go Nuclear?

 

The Obama administration and Democrats are hell-bent on allowing Iran to get the nuclear bomb. In addition, the deal will supply Iran with $150 billion dollars, which they’ve already admitted they would use to continue to fund terror operations and destroy Israel. Sanctions would also be lifted. This deal essentially empowers the No. 1 state sponsor of terrorism to gain even more power and influence.

Potential Historical Outcome:

  • Iran becomes the dominant political and military force in the Middle East.
    Saudi Arabia gets nukes.
    The Saudis, Iranians and Israelis all nuke each other.
    Iran nukes the United States. If it happens under Obama, he won’t retaliate.

Mark Levin at Wednesday’s “Stop Iran Rally”: “This deal sows the seeds of war”.

Solutions:

  • Tighten pre-existing sanctions and continue to put the screws on Iran’s military.
    Covertly attack their nuclear production facilities.
    Foment and arm the citizens supportive of a regime-change.
    Openly change our country’s policy on assassination and let Iran know it.

2. Why are Airstrikes Not Crushing ISIS?

 


Stories claim Barack Obama is selecting the targets. Donald Trump mentioned in a recent radio interview that U.S. or coalition airstrikes aren’t focusing on ISIS training camps. Why?

On the surface, the efforts to take out one of the most menacing terror organizations in human history appears nothing more than window dressing. As a result of their expansion through Syria, Iraq and Libya, Europe is being flooded with refugees…and ISIS operatives posing as refugees.

Potential Historical Outcome:

  • ISIS creates the caliphate it desires and joins with Iran to rule from Northern Africa to Afghanistan.
    The influx of refugees tilts Europe’s already staggering populations toward a majority-Muslim census. Muslim political candidates easily win elections.
    Swollen European welfare rolls make the economy unsustainable
    Massive, authoritarian governance is enacted to solve the crisis
    Europe is thrown into civil war as the remaining native-born Europeans try to hang on to their dwindling Western culture

Solution:
Get serious about removing ISIS with more frequent and substantive airstrikes.
Don’t remove Bashar Assad as Syria’s leader until ISIS is stopped.
NATO must continue to invest in its military.

3. Why is U.S. Military Shrinking?

 


The easy answer to this question is: Too much debt.
That answer begs a question: What’s driving the debt?
The ultimate answer: Pork, Cronyism, Food Stamps, Welfare, Obamacare, Subsidies, Giving Money to Enemies, Corruption, etc.

The United States Military continues to shrink as we finish 14 years of war in Afghanistan and Iraq. Budget cuts are causing the U.S. Navy to shrink its number of operational ships while new technologies are brought along slowly or cancelled.

And, of course, the military continues to spend unwisely. As we reported on Aug. 13, 2015, the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter could be a massive lemon. Some of the Navy’s new stealth (Zumwalt-class destroyers and Freedom/Independence-class littoral combat) boats feature modular designs to accommodate various mission needs, but can they fight and survive on their own if confronted by more traditional ships?

Little Known Fact: The USS Zumwalt operates under the command of Captain James A. Kirk.

Potential Historical Outcome:

  • Due to budget cuts by European allies, NATO can no longer serv as a deterrent without massive U.S. support.
    The U.S. military, set up to fight asymmetrical wars, can no longer support more than one theatre of operations involving traditional warfare.
    Russia moves west and the takes the Ukraine with light, but useless sabre-rattling from NATO.
    Iran/ISIS dominate the Middle East and Africa.
    China takes over huge swaths of the South China sea, annexes Taiwan and holds sway over other Pacific Nations.
    North Korea joins forces in a plot to attack the United States by providing missile technology to the Chinese and Iranians.
    Re-Arm Japan.

Solutions

  • Prepare the military to fight in several potential theaters of operation: Middle East, Africa, Europe and Asia-Pacific.
    High-tech is great, but if our enemies find ways to stop our technology via satellite warfare or electro-magnetic pulses, we must be able to fight an old-style analog battle.
    Continue to invest in killer- and satellite-defense assets to protect our space-borne assets.
    Lock hackers out of our military and governmental systems.
