There’s a lot of “deep concern” emanating from the White House these days.
The latest message of “deep concern” came today after news of a military coup in Honduras. This comes on the heels of President Obama’s belated “deep concern” about the Iranian regime’s lethal crackdown on peaceful democratic protesters. That was preceded by “deep concern” about North Korea’s detonation of a nuclear weapon, which itself was preceded and followed by “deep concern” about Pyongyang’s long and short-range missile tests.
The reason rogue states are escalating their thuggish behavior and borderline states are going rogue is because the Obama administration is relying only on signals of “deep concern” — and nothing else.
When the world’s greatest democracy and its only superpower neither speaks up for freedom nor backs it up with muscle (or at least the threat of muscle), bad things happen in the world.
Those bad things are popping up all across the globe. And since the United States isn’t pushing back, the bad guys will push ahead.
I’m “deeply concerned.”
