2011 Mike Church
Hi folks its Mike Church with todays Church Doctrine.
Now that Osama bin Laden has been killed by U.S. Special Forces you would think we could begin to talk about ending the occupations and conflicts begun to wage the war on terror, alas, the fight is just beginning according to some. While informing the country of bin Ladens demise President Obama said as much when he opined that The cause of securing our country is not complete. But tonight, our commitment to stand up for our values abroad, and our sacrifices to make the world a safer place [is as important as ever]
Bin Ladens Demise WIll be Used to EXPAND War
Juxtapose that passage from the President with the juvenile waving of flags and the singing of sporting event fight songs outside the White House and a picture emerges of a country that is obsessed with war. This gives my claim that America is now a shining gun turret on a hill a boost in credibility. Ask yourself this question: do the Australian People stand up for their values abroad by using Australias military to force Outback Steakhouses into markets where they are unwanted?
Bin Ladens long overdue death is a good thing, that is true but it would be an even better thing if the lessons learned from it were those of getting back to practicing a humble foreign policy. President Obama should declare the United States the victor in the war against al Qaeda and borrowing a line from his birth certificate nemesis, Donald Trump, Obama can then tell his war commanders Youre fired!
