Go Right Ahead – Tread On Us

What's happened to the nation that stitched this flag?

Investor's Business Daily points out how things have changed, and not for the better. Here are some excerpts, but read the whole thing:
National Priorities: When a secretary of defense gets confirmed 95-2 apparently because he says we are not winning a war, you know Uncle Sam must have a sign on his back that says "kick me."

We've come a long way from that day in April 1986 when President Ronald Reagan ordered Operation El Dorado Canyon, an air strike on Libya by two dozen F-111F fighter bombers in retaliation for a terrorist blast at a West Berlin disco that injured 200 people, including 63 U.S. soldiers, killing two.

Back then we took the fight to our enemies.

Iran's Ayatollah Khomeini, who held Americans hostage for 444 days, released them 20 minutes after Reagan's inaugural address.

We bled the Soviet empire dry, supporting communism's opponents around the globe from Afghanistan to Nicaragua.

We didn't fear an arms race, we planned on winning it. When we talked to our enemies, it was to tell them things like, "Mr. Gorbachev, tear down that wall."

Now we find ourselves sitting impotently while Iran's maniacal little smurf, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, builds nukes to wipe Israel off the map while he writes love letters to the American people telling us why we must change our policies.

We wait while the U.N. thinks about talking about imposing sanctions, instead of making a list of targets.

We watch as Venezuelan thug Hugo Chavez solidifies his control, squeezing every bit of democracy and freedom out of that country as he forms an anti-U.S. alliance with Iran and North Korea and seeks to export his tyranny throughout Central and South America.

And welcome back, Daniel Ortega. The world is safe once again for your ilk.

We are asked to apologize for removing Muslim Imams, who are connected with a mosque linked to al-Qaida, from a plane after exhibiting behavior typical of terrorists.

We establish Muslim meditation rooms in airports as others plot to blow trans-Atlantic airliners out of the sky and our schoolchildren are forbidden from singing Christmas carols.

How times have changed. All we need now is Jimmy Carter sitting in front of a fireplace.
