I just can't seem to think it's important for us to think about what the rest of the world thinks about us. It appears that just as we have spoiled our children we have spoiled the rest of the world as well. They can act with impunity because all we do is threaten. Remember the 17 resolutions to try to make Saddam Hussein behave himself before we actually did something concrete? Apparently there are more folks who believe we should have issued another 17 or 27 resolutions in the last 7 years without taking any action for bad behavior. How many more mass graves and tortuous actions would have resulted from our empty threats? No way to know, I guess.
But now the world seems to think that we have a better chief executive at the helm. Do you suppose they will start behaving themselves? I notice there have already been suppressed threats from Iran, Russia and China. What will they be doing while the talks are going on?
The above thoughts were due to seeing some European commemorations of Armistice Day
yesterday. Wonder how long it will be before the anti-Christian and anti-religious coalitions will put a stop to this kind of activity in honor of living and dead heroes.
Joe gets back into Michigan tomorrow and instead of having Grandma cook for him he wants to go to the Outback Steak House to thank them for sending 3000 pizzas to his unit in the war zone. I had heard about it but didn't realize it was going to get personal. Oops-I mixed up my stories. The pizzas came from someplace else. The Outback Steak House went to several different locations and Joe's unit of 1200 was served a full meal-steak and trimmings. Thanks, Outback.
