We have no standing in the world.

Why is President Obama looked upon as weak? Much of his troubles in the world have been self-made. He went around the world, apologizing, bowing, and just telling other countries how ashamed he was of the United States. Oh how we were going to reset relations, with Russia and everybody else. A new day dawning.

Of course intelligent people knew he must have blinders on. No sane person would ever think the rest of the world would just love to be friends, hold hands, and sing campfire songs.

Putin? You have got to be kidding. Reset? Yup. We sure reset Russian relations. Reset to the Cold War.

But Republicans, namely George Bush, bear some responsibility to this weakness.

America and the rest of the world have been soured on military action, especially from the United States. The Iraq War, with good intentions, morphed into a disaster. After victory, no less. We were in a quagmire with no way out, much less save face. Our military lost a lost of lives.

We just don't have the stomach for America to police the world. And our allies are not giving us any comfort either. They don't want in.

The world economy is still in bad shape.

So now we have the United States sitting on our hands. We look pretty silly drawing lines in the sand and saying "dare you." Only to have the line crossed, draw another line, and say, "I double dare you." The line keeps moving and there's nothing we can do about it.

Not at this point anyway.

George Bush did half right. He knew how to get our allies on his team. Obama knows no such thing. He can't get anyone to follow him. Why bother? He's not leading anywhere. And the rest of the world is just sitting on its hands as well.

Look at Egypt. Iran. Syria. Ukraine. Crimea. Even Venezuela. Nothing. The world stands by as hundreds of thousands of people are killed in Syria. Nobody has the stomach to stop dictators in 2014.

So if not the United States, who? Nobody. Perhaps the next president will know how to rally the rest of the free world around a cause for freedom.

We need people like Ronald Reagan, Margaret Thatcher, and Pope John Paul II.

Isn't it amazing our biggest ally, Great Britain, remains eerily silent.

The United States has lost all standing in the world.

Sending Joe Biden to reassure Poland, is like a bad joke gone bad. I mean come on, Joe Biden? I guess Bill was too busy campaigning for Hillary...That's how serious Obama takes this....sends Biden.

US Navy to back up Russia during Olympics?

So the US Navy is offering to have some backup ships near the Black Sea to help out Russia. Just in case it's needed. US Defence Secretary Chuck Hagel made an offer of support to Sergei Shoigu on January 4th. This is the same Russia that has befriended Edward Snowden. Oddly, this is the same Russia that warned us about the Boston Marathon bombers. Something that we ignored, I might add. Speaking of those bombers, I guess the NSA wasn't up to the task either on that one. So what do they do with those cell phone records?

Of course we sincerely hope our Naval forces are not needed for The Olympics. It would be quite odd for us to evacuate people or bomb something during a so-called non-political event. The Olympics non-political? Yeah. Right.

Perhaps this is Obama's way of getting back at Putin. You know. We hype the threat to Russia. Making us look like the bigger guys. If there's any country that could crack down hard on terrorism, it's got to be Russia. But it's not the same Russia as it once was. The Mighty Bear is a shell of itself and has had it's share of dealing with domestic violence and terrorism.

The bottom line is that all countries at The Olympics have a stake in safety. Not just for the games, but for the world. Russia needs to pull out all the stops and accept any and all help to put on a safe (and sane) Olympics. But it does put Putin in weird way. Snowden on one hand, and fighting terror on the other. Maybe this is his just desserts. Let's just hope innocent people don't die.

If called upon, we know our military men and women will show off the best forces in the world!

Job search help for veterans

There have been some online job fairs for veterans recently. One was sponsored by http://www.veteranrecruiting.com. They will have a military spouse appreciation virtual job fair day on May 6, 2013.

Another site is http://www.vetfriendly.com/. They have numerous employors signed up to help veterans find jobs. If you are a business, and help hire veterans, you can get your company listed as being veteran-friendly. Here is a quote from the website:

" All employers in VetFriendly have been thoroughly screened to ensure there are only those employers who have good paying, full time employment, and who make a concerted effort to recruit, hire and retain our Nation's finest."

Any employer can list their company for free under the industry that best describes their business, and we encourage all employers to look to veterans first when making any new hire.

The White House is also "joining forces" to help veterans find jobs at: http://www.whitehouse.gov/joiningforces/. There are resources for vets and military spouses as well.

http://veteranrecruiting.jobs/ is yet another site with job listings for veterans, as well as allowing businesses post job openings.

Anyway that Americans can get veterans jobs is a good thing. We hope that more businesses will look to hire veterans. It's very tough, for several reasons, for veterans to actually seek and get jobs. We need to honor their service and hire them.

>> Buy American!
