America is in deep trouble

Reader comment on item: Arguing against "Limited" Strikes on the Assad Regime

Submitted by john w. mcginley (United States), Aug 28, 2013 at 11:02

Doubtlessly the Obama action against Syria is motivated by political (and in Obama's case, narcissistic) consideration. Whatever he does will be for "show" and not for substance. Already he has signaled that one of the targets will be the airfields where advanced Russian helicopters are kept. In effect the narcissist (who thinks he is SO clever) is signaling that Putin has the time to temporarily get those advanced helicopters to safe quarters so that our missiles bomb the hell out of airfields which no longer harbor serious weapons. This guy is "Sound and Fury, signifying Nothing."

ANYONE who seeks to be President is "gifted" with a high degree of narcissism. But in Obama's case it is a matter of a clinical pathology. Three more years of Obama and the USA will be militarily SO weakened that we will have to accept terms from powers such as Russia and China.

But once more: The American electorate elected him TWICE! I admit to a "mea maxima culpa" for my vote in 2008. The leaders in congress and the military should make the case for impeachment asap. It will be too late for America if we have three more years of the narcissist.
