Thomas Paine said it all

Reader comment on item: Obama's Anti-Zionism

Submitted by Joe Chernicoff (United States), Jan 22, 2013 at 17:56

These are times to try men's souls - a statement probably more true today than it was in Paine's day. Obama's inauguration speech laid out his 'no longer the same America to be' ideology, a political tone I strongly believe places the Western aligned nations in great jeopardy..This country, and Israel, are at risk from the inactions of a seemingly weak US Congress. Apparently, at this time, the only strongly democratic or democratic- republian form of governments are the USA and Israel, When both are weakened, then the world suffers economically, morally, and scientifically, because the world loses its much required leadership. Unfortunately, as Dambia Moyo points out in her book 'How the West Was Lost', American, and the other Western countries, have too many uneducated, disaffected, and unintelligent people, particularly amongst the young, which is a foundation for the destruction of the American and Israeli way of life.
