Why does Obama want to do it…who knows…who cares…he must be stopped, Re: Obama to Kill Tomahawk, Hellfire Missile Programs, Washington Free Beacon, March 25, 2014

Wednesday, March 26th, 2014

President Obama is making it very tempting for America’s enemies, specifically China, Iran, North Korea and Russia to attack the United States in force because he is gutting the American military and rapidly making it impossible for the military to defend and protect the country…because the military may or may not have the might to deter an attack today and definitely will not have it tomorrow if Obama keeps on with his policy of emasculating it and effectively making it weaker and weaker and removing its ability to keep America and Americans safe from attack. And make no mistake, America’s military is becoming weaker and weaker day by day, while America’s enemies are becoming stronger and stronger day by day…America’s enemies are pouring money and resources into their armed forces and increasing their capabilities as we speak…under Obama America is stripping its military of resources and reducing its capability as we speak. That is a recipe for disaster and guarantees that the United States will be attacked in force in the future, and the not too distant future at that, perhaps even with nuclear weapons…what is tempting today will be a fait accompli tomorrow because by then the American military will have become so weak that no one will have anything to fear from it. Deterrent effect…what deterrent effect? 

In his latest nonsensical and dangerous move Obama is attempting to abolish two of the most effective, successful weapons systems in the military’s arsenal and replacing them with…nothing. He wants to get rid of the Tomahawk and Hellfire missile programs, both of which are cornerstones of American power, both of which are key elements in keeping America and Americans safe and secure and both of which are essential to whatever is left of America’s ability to deter its enemies. Militarily, getting rid of the Tomahawk and Hellfire missile programs makes absolutely no sense at all…all it really does is bring an attack on America and Americans that much closer. Getting rid of the Tomahawk and Hellfire missile programs would dramatically weaken the American military and it is weak enough already. 

So why does Obama want to do it? 

So why is Obama gutting the military and making it weaker and weaker with every passing moment? 

Speculating on that is a waste of time, time that America and Americans don’t have, time that the free world doesn’t have either because truth be told the free world cannot possibly survive without a strong, resolute America at its helm, because truth be told, if America dies the free world will die along with it. 

Obama may be doing these things because he’s delusional or stupid or ignorant or narcissistic or historically illiterate…he may be doing them on purpose because he wants to destroy the United States for religious, Islamic, or ideological, Marxist, reasons…he may be doing them because he’s an easily manipulated simpleton…there are any number of possible reasons. The point is though that he is doing these things and that he will keep on doing them unless he is stopped…unless he is stopped he will keep on doing them until America passes a point of no return and one or several of America’s enemies decide to attack in force because they think they can defeat America and take over the country…a point of no return which is rapidly approaching 

Americans should take heed of the old adage “The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.” 

In the world America lives in that is more true than ever. 

Under Obama, the bad guys are getting more and more and bigger and better guns and the good guys soon won’t be able to stop them even if they wanted to. 

Americans have to remove him from office and restore the military to its previous might 

If they want themselves and their country to survive that is. 

Time really is of the essence.

 

al-Qaeda wants the Queen murdered, Re: ‘Lone-wolf’ jihadists told to target Queen at high-profile sporting events, including Wimbledon and Cheltenham, in latest chilling threats from al-Qaeda, Daily Mail, March 23, 2014

Monday, March 24th, 2014

Inspire Magazine is published by al-Qaeda and is readily available on the internet to anyone who wishes to read it. It is used by al-Qaeda as a propaganda, recruitment, instructional and motivational tool and is widely read by Jihadists and potential Jihadists all over the world. 

In its most recent edition British Jihadists have been ordered to murder Queen Elizabeth. The order was directed towards British Jihadists returning to Britain from fighting in Syria but it really applies to any Jihadist living in Britain whether they’ve been to Syria or not. Jihadists are instructed to act as lone wolves to avoid detection and are given advice on how and where to carry out an attack. 

Jihadists are also ordered to commit mass murder as well. In particular, sporting events attended by thousands of people are to be targeted in order to murder and maim large numbers of people in one fell swoop, inflict the maximum amount of terror, destruction and death in each instance and reap as much publicity from each instance as possible. Wimbledon, Cheltenham, Epsom and Premier League and FA Cup football matches are seen as excellent targets but any sporting event attended by large numbers of people will do nicely, murdering and maiming as many people as possible in one fell swoop being the most important consideration. That means of course that while sporting events are the preferred targets they aren’t the only potential ones at all…any place where large numbers of people are gathered would be suitable as well and if hundreds or thousands of people are killed in a park or on the underground or in a hotel that would be just fine. Car bombs are seen as the preferred method of murdering and maiming people (Inspire even provides instructions on how to build and detonate them) but anything that Jihadists use is more than acceptable if it works and al-Qaeda’s orders are executed. 

In the same issue, targets in the United States and France are also recommended and the same orders and instructions are issued for al-Qaeda operatives, Jihadists, in those countries. Like the ones that apply specifically to Britain they are directed towards American and French Jihadists returning from fighting in Syria but really apply to any Jihadist living in either country regardless of whether or not they’ve fought in Syria…as in Britain, murdering and maiming large numbers of people in one fell swoop, inflicting the maximum amount of terror, destruction and death from each instance and reaping as much publicity as possible from each instance are the primary objectives, with murdering and maiming large numbers of people in one fell swoop being the most important of the three…any Jihadist who succeeds in mass murder would be seen as a hero of the first degree just like they would be in Britain, whether they were in Syria or not, whether they used a car bomb or not, whether they attacked a sporting event or not. 

So why on earth would anyone want to murder Queen Elizabeth? 

So how on earth would anyone want to commit mass murder a la al-Qaeda? 

So how on earth can anyone justify murdering Queen Elizabeth? 

So how on earth can anyone justify mass murder a la al-Qaeda? 

Study Islam honestly, objectively, factually and in-depth and you’ll have the answers. 

Look at what Jihadists, Islamists, have done in the name of Islam since it first came into existence 1,400 years ago and what they are doing all over the world today in the name of Islam and you’ll have the answers…look at what they’ve done in the name of Islam and what they want to do in the name of Islam. 

After that, fight back and save yourself and your country…while it is still possible.

Weakness has its consequences, Re: Israel’s Defense Chief Says U.S. Projecting Weakness, Washington Free Beacon, March 20, 2014

Friday, March 21st, 2014

Moshe Yaalon, Israel’s Minister of Defense, recently stated that the United States was projecting weakness on the international stage and that Israel could not depend on the United States to do anything meaningful to prevent Iran from developing and using nuclear weapons. He also said that Israel could look to no one except itself to keep nuclear weapons out of Iran’s hands and that in the matter of Iran and nuclear weapons Israeli’s “have to behave as though we have nobody to look out for us but ourselves,”. His remarks were a clear condemnation of President Obama and the way he conducts foreign policy, weakness being the last thing an American President and by extension America itself should project, especially in this day and age of multiple threats by powerful, very capable enemies, enemies not only of the United States, Israel and the rest of the free world, but enemies of freedom, democracy, pluralism and secularism as well, enemies who are getting more powerful and capable every day.

Yaalon’s remarks were pointed directly at President Obama and were of course absolutely correct. He only voiced what America’s friends and allies have been thinking for some time now and what America’s enemies have known for some time now too. Obama is a paper tiger and no one has anything to fear from him at all. Not only does he project weakness, he is weak and that means that the United States will not respond in force no matter what anyone does, that America’s enemies have carte blanche to do whatever they want, no matter how much it jeopardizes America itself or America’s friends and allies, Iran’s nuclear weapons development program and Russia’s invasion and annexation of the Crimea being but two examples among many.

Obama’s weakness has not only jeopardized the national security of the United States and the safety and security of the American people, it has also jeopardized the national security of every single one of America’s friends and allies and the safety and security of their people…its not just Americans who are affected by Obama’s weakness, who are vulnerable and endangered…its also the Australians, British, Canadians, French, Germans, Israelis, Italians, Spanish, Scandinavians and everyone else in the free world…its not just freedom, democracy, pluralism and secularism in the United States that are in danger because of Obama’s weakness, its freedom, democracy, pluralism and secularism in Australia, Britain, Canada, France, Germany, Israel, Italy, Spain, Scandinavia and everywhere else in the free world too…its not just the very existence of the United States that is jeopardized by Obama’s weakness…its the very existence of the rest of the free world too. The lack of a credible American deterrent means that the enemies of America and the rest of the free world, Russia and Iran included, feel they can do anything they want to and get away with it, which means that they will do anything they want to, no matter how bloody or heinous or reprehensible. All of that goes directly to Obama. That’s what Yaalon was saying and he couldn’t have been more right. Weakness has its consequences and none of them are pretty.

So you see, its not only in American’s best interests to force Obama out of office, to impeach him or charge him with a possible multiplicity of offences or convince him to resign. Its in the best interests of everyone else in the free world too… the Australians, British, Canadians, French, Germans, Israelis, Italians, Spanish, Scandinavians, everyone.

Its not in the best interests of the Russians or the Iranians or the Chinese or the North Koreans or al-Qaeda or other religious fanatics et.al. though. They know how valuable he is to them and would love to see him serve out his term.

Might Makes Right, Re: Russia Laughs At Obama’s Sanctions, WorldNetDaily, March 17, 2014

Monday, March 17th, 2014

Russia’s takeover of the Crimea is just the latest proof that the old adage ‘Might Makes Right’ is every bit as true today as it has been throughout history, throughout the history of the human race. The stronger person or group or country has always been able to impose their will on their weaker counterparts and that is exactly what happened when Russia sent its military into the Crimea and effectively took it away from Ukraine and placed it firmly in the Russian sphere. The Ukrainians were weaker than the Russians and couldn’t stop them from taking over the Crimea and dividing their country in two. Russian might trumped Ukrainian weakness and meant that the Russians could do whatever they wanted to Ukraine and the Crimea, whether the Ukrainians liked it or nor, which they most assuredly didn’t. 

Russian President Vladimir Putin, like every single dictator who ever lived, understands the truth of the adage. Putin knew that Ukraine couldn’t stop him and that the United States under President Obama, the only other country, the only other entity, with the capacity to stop him, for now at least, wouldn’t. That knowledge was what caused him to go ahead to begin with. He knew that he had nothing to fear from a weak Obama and that he could march into Ukraine, march into Crimea, and do as they pleased. You want to know what really happened to Ukraine? The answer is simple. Putin’s strength, Putin’s might, trumped Obama’s weakness, that’s what. The stronger overcame the weaker…might made right, as it always does and always has done. Putin understands that whereas Obama demonstrably doesn’t, not only because of the fiasco he has presided over in Ukraine but because of the totality of his foreign policy track record as well, which has placed the national security, indeed the very existence of the U.S., in grave danger. 

America is surrounded by powerful, determined enemies who would like nothing more than to bring it to its knees, to destroy it, and who would stop at nothing to do just that. The last thing American’s need is a weak President and a weak President is exactly what they have in Obama. Make no mistake, America’s enemies know it too and have been busily taking advantage of him since he took office…make no mistake, the door to a large scale attack on America and Americans is open and getting more and more open every day. 

Might really does make right. The Russians, the Chinese, the Iranians, the North Koreans, all of America’s enemies, understand that. 

Obama doesn’t. 

Hell, even if he suddenly miraculously developed a backbone his dismantling of the American military, his gutting of the American military, would severely limit his options anyway. 

The truth is, America’s enemies are getting stronger every day and America under a weak President is getting weaker every day. 

If that isn’t enough to terrify Americans I don’t know what would be. 

If that isn’t enough to remove him from office I don’t know what would be. 

If that isn’t enough to restore the American military I don’t know what would be. 

Might makes right and Americans better not forget it. 

Neither should the rest of the free world for that matter. 

Especially of course the Israelis.

Money or terror the only possible reasons, Re: Investigators convinced missing MH370 was hijacked, The Malaysian Times, March 15, 2014

Saturday, March 15th, 2014

In the end there are only four possible reasons for the disappearance of a Malaysian passenger jet last week on a routine flight from Malaysia to Beijing with 239 people on board.

The first is that some sort of catastrophic event occurred in mid-air that caused it to break up very quickly and that it crashed into the ocean as a result.

The second is that some sort of catastrophic event occurred in mid-air that caused everyone on board to die very quickly but that the plane nevertheless flew on its own for several hours before running out of fuel and crashing and disintegrating somewhere.

The third is that it was hijacked by a person or persons unknown who then forced the pilot to crash the plane killing everyone on board.

The fourth is that it was hijacked by a person or persons unknown for reasons which are as yet unknown and that it was flown to a secret location somewhere where it is sitting as we speak.

Forget the first three. All things considered, there is no way any of them could have happened without the world knowing by now, without the world at least discovering the wreckage by now.

That means that the plane was in fact hijacked by a person or persons unknown for reasons which are as yet unknown and that it was flown to a secret location somewhere where it is sitting as we speak.

That is the only plausible explanation. And yes, it is technically possible and not something that could only occur in the realm of science fiction. Whoever hijacked it didn’t even necessarily have to be on board. He or she…they…could have hacked into the plane’s computers and controlled it themselves.

So why would anyone do anything like that?

In the end there are only two possible reasons.

Money or terror.

If it was money the perpetrators will soon start demanding huge payments in return for releasing the passengers and/or the plane itself, threatening to murder the passengers and crew and destroy the plane if such payments aren’t made. It would in other words be the largest and most audacious act of piracy in history.

If it was terror everyone on board (except perhaps the hijackers) is already dead and the plane is being fitted out as we speak with some sort of weapon of mass destruction or being otherwise prepared to fly somewhere and cause millions of deaths. It would in other words be the largest and most audacious act of terrorism in history, the largest and most audacious act of mass murder in history, something that would make 9/11 pale by comparison.

Either way, we’ll have the answer soon.

Personally, I’m betting on terror being the reason.

Israel can learn from Ukraine, Re: Broken Promises, National Post, March 12, 2014

Thursday, March 13th, 2014

Twenty years ago in 1994 the United States and Russia were the two largest nuclear powers on earth. 

Ukraine was number three and was most definitely a nuclear power to be reckoned with.It had roughly 1,900 long range nuclear warheads and another 2,500 or so short range nuclear weapons under its control and there were approximately 200 silos scattered around the country ready to launch them as circumstances warranted. 

In one of the great blunders of history the government of Ukraine at the time agreed to give up its nuclear weapons and become a non nuclear nation, something no other nuclear power has done before or since. It did so after receiving assurances from the other nuclear powers of the day that its territorial integrity, including the Crimea, would forever be respected and that its national sovereignty would not be jeopardized or compromised as a result of giving up the weapons. Specifically, in the Budapest Memorandum the United States, Russia and Great Britain agreed “to refrain from the threat or use of force against the territorial integrity or political independence of Ukraine,”. France and China signed the memorandum later on as well. 

So, here we are twenty years later and Russian President Vladimir Putin has sent the Russian military into the Crimea and effectively annexed it and placed it under Moscow’s control, his control, thus splitting Ukraine and jeopardizing and compromising its political independence, its national sovereignty, its very existence. 

Where are the other signatories to the memorandum and what are they doing to get the Russians to keep their word and leave Ukraine and the Crimea alone…what are they doing to get the Russians “to refrain from the threat or use of force against the territorial integrity or political independence of Ukraine,” and live up to the Budapest Memorandum, not to mention at least six other international covenants and agreements? 

Nowhere to be found, that’s where and nothing substantial or effective at all, that’s what. 

By their weak, lacklustre and totally ineffectual response the United States, Great Britain, France and China as signatories to the Budapest Memorandum and the international community in general have made it crystal clear to Putin that he is free to do as he wishes with the Crimea and Ukraine and that they will not do anything meaningful to force him to change his behavior and live up to the Budapest Memorandum and all the other international covenants and agreements. They have also made it crystal clear to the Ukrainians that they are on their own and crystal clear to the rest of the world that the Budapest Memorandum and international covenants and agreements aren’t worth the paper they’re printed on…that they cannot be trusted to keep their word and live up to their promises and commitments, despite their rhetoric…that promises are made to be broken and that they will break them. 

Can anyone seriously believe that Putin would have marched on Ukraine if it had retained its nuclear weapons? No, they can’t. Can anyone seriously believe that Ukraine would be in the predicament it is if it decided not to trust the United States, Great Britain, Russia and later France and China and kept its nuclear weapons? No, they can’t. 

Ukraine’s predicament is a very instructive lesson for Israel, whose nuclear deterrent is arguably the only thing keeping its enemies from attacking in force and overwhelming and destroying it. 

Very instructive indeed.

A story Israel should be telling the world, Re: Final inventory of Iran arms ship: 40 rockets, 180 mortars, 400,000 bullets, Jerusalem Post, March 9, 2014

Sunday, March 9th, 2014

Last week the Israeli military intercepted a ship in the Red Sea some 1,500 kilometres from Israel which it suspected was carrying Iranian weapons to various terrorist organizations in Gaza, among them Islamic Jihad and Hamas.

Israel’s suspicions proved to be correct as the Israeli Defence Forces just released an inventory of the weapons which were found on the ship.

The Israelis found 40 rockets, each with a range of 90 to 160 kilometres, 180 mortar rounds and approximately 400,000 bullets.

In releasing the inventory the Israeli military said “These are advanced weapons that were designed to threaten the security of millions of Israeli civilians. The IDF will continue in its mission to prevent arms smuggling across the Middle East to various terror organizations, under Iranian cover and funding,”.

All of that is true, but it only tells part of the story.

The weapons were meant to do far more than threaten the security of millions of Israeli civilians, far more than terrorize millions of Israeli civilians, far more than even wound or maim millions of Israeli citizens.

They were meant to kill Israeli civilians, to murder them, men, women and children alike and the terrorist organizations, the Islamist organizations, into whose hands they were headed would have used them to do exactly that…kill Israeli civilians, murder Israeli civilians, men, women and children alike. There is no use denying that or glossing it over. If those weapons got through and Islamic Jihad, Hamas or Allah knows who else got hold of them Israeli blood would have been shed and Israeli lives would have been lost…Israeli civilians, Israeli men, women and children, would have been killed, Israeli civilians, men, women and children, would have been murdered.

That’s another part of the story.

The IDF did exceedingly well by becoming aware of the weapons shipment in the first place and by intercepting the ship and capturing the weapons. It saved many lives, many civilian lives, the lives of men, women and children alike.

That’s another part of the story as well.

Another part is Iran’s desire to wipe Israel off the map, to destroy the country and remove it from the face of the earth…which is based on hatred and disgust for Israel and all things Israeli… which in turn is based on hatred and disgust towards Jews…which is rooted in the Koran and is 1,400 years old and has everything to do with Islam and nothing to do with Israel as such…which is of course why Iran wants to develop and possess nuclear weapons, to become a nuclear power…not to threaten the security of millions of Israeli civilians but to wipe Israel off the map, to destroy the country and remove it from the face of the earth and to kill, murder, millions of Israelis, Jews, in the process.

That’s the story and Israel should be telling it to the world, loudly and clearly.

Especially to the Americans, who are number two on Iran’s hit list.

Iran’s nuclear weapons hit list.

They might even be number one for all anyone knows.

Israel is only the Little Satan after all.

The Great Satan being America.

Make no mistake, the Iranians want to destroy the United states too and will use their nuclear weapons against the U.S. at the earliest possible opportunity, in the meantime contenting themselves with carrying out small and large scale terrorist attacks against America and Americans as they have been doing for decades.

That’s something else the Israelis should be telling the Americans.

Loudly and clearly.

For their own sake.

Questions and answers, Re: Aggressive Putin, Feckless Obama, Washington Times, March 4, 2014

Wednesday, March 5th, 2014

Russian President Putin has revealed the true face of U.S. President Obama to the world.

He has shown the world that President Obama is feckless, cowardly, indecisive, undependable and delusional…that he does not have the intellect or the character to meet the demands of his office…that he does not have the intellect or the character to be the leader of the free world…that he has no substance and is an empty vessel.

The world should certainly have known this before the debacle in Ukraine, but if it didn’t it definitely does now.

Obama’s response to Putin’s attack on Ukraine and annexation of the Crimea raise a number of questions for Americans and for America’s friends and allies around the world.

Here are a few for America’s friends and allies.

Question.

Is there anyone Obama will protect militarily…anyone that can depend on the American military to respond to an attack on them with force, overwhelming, immediate force?

Answer.

No.

Question.

Does this mean that if the Iranians follow the Russians example and attack Israel that Obama will abandon the Israelis just like he did the Ukrainians?

Answer.

Yes.

Question.

Does this mean that if the North Koreans follow the Russians example and attack South Korea that Obama will abandon the South Koreans just like he did the Ukrainians?

Answer.

Yes.

Question.

Does this mean that if the Chinese follow the Russians example and invade and annex Taiwan that Obama will abandon the Taiwanese just like he abandoned the Ukrainians?

Answer.

Yes.

Question.

Does this mean that if the Russians choose not to stop with Ukraine and decide to attack other countries that they formerly controlled, that were formerly behind the Iron Curtain, in order to bring them back into their orbit that Obama will abandon them just like he abandoned the Ukrainians?

Answer.

Yes.

Question.

Does this mean that Obama just told the despots, demagogues, dictators and religious fanatics of the world that they are free to do whatever they want to because he will not intervene militarily no matter what and they therefore have nothing to fear from him, nothing to fear from the United States?

Answer.

Yes.

Here are a few questions for Americans?

Can you sleep soundly in your beds knowing that America’s enemies are much more likely to attack you and your country as a result of Obama’s demonstrated weakness and fecklessness…that he might not even respond with force, immediate, overwhelming force…that they now know for certain that they face no real deterrent?

Answer.

No.

Question.

What message does Obama’s response to Putin’s attack on Ukraine and annexation of the Crimea send to your enemies, send to those who would do you harm, great, great harm?

Answer.

Attack us too, attack us too.

Question.

Should Obama’s proposed budget cuts to the military, budget cuts that would cripple the military and totally compromise the safety and security of Americans and the national security of the United States, be allowed?

Answer.

No.

Question.

As things stand now what will Obama’s legacy be?

Answer.

Ruination and destruction, not only for America and Americans but for the Free World as well.

Question.

Are we in deep, deep trouble because we elected him?

Answer.

Yes.

Question.

Is there any possibility that he will change?

Answer.

None whatsoever.

Question.

Is there any possibility that things will get better with him in office?

Answer.

None whatsoever.

Question.

What are the chances of things getting worse as long as he remains in office?

Answer.

100%.

Question.

What can we do to get rid of him?

Answer.

Rise up collectively and force his resignation or impeachment.

Questions and answers…now all that remains is…action.

Bye-bye Ukraine…Barack, Re: Ukraine Puts Troops on High Alert, Threatens War if Russia Takes Further Military Action, International New York Times, March 2, 2014

Sunday, March 2nd, 2014

The United States has decided to abandon Ukraine.

That means that any time now there will be a full scale war between Ukraine and Russia.

The scenario is very simple and is unfolding before our eyes.

Russia will continue with the invasion its launched…Ukraine will fight back to maintain her territorial integrity and national sovereignty…she will lose a short, vicious war because her armed forces are no match for Russia’s…at the end she will be dragged back kicking and screaming into the Russian orbit and will find herself under Russian control…at the end she will no longer be a free, independent nation but will be a Russian vassal state instead, which is exactly what Russia wants and exactly why Russia invaded in the first place.

That and because Russia knew it would get away with it.

One thing and one thing only can persuade Russia to change its course.

Armed intervention by the United States.

Nothing else will get Russia to call off the invasion and leave Ukrainians alone. Anyone who thinks otherwise doesn’t understand Russia, doesn’t understand history, doesn’t understand geopolitics and doesn’t understand bullies.

All the threats, all the outrage, all the denunciation, all the gestures by President Obama and other Western leaders are utterly meaningless and won’t stop Russia from doing anything.

Only military might will and the only country with a military strong enough and capable enough to get Russia to back off is the United States.

Well guess what, the United States is not going to intervene militarily. It simply is not going to use its military to keep Russia from taking over Ukraine. Obama truly is an emperor with no clothes and Russia has absolutely nothing to fear from the United States. Russia has a free hand in Ukraine because the only country that can stop it from taking over, won’t.

President Obama is weak and won’t defend Ukraine and Russia knows this and is taking advantage of his weakness to conquer it. Russia took the measure of Obama, found him weak and lacking in strength and substance and decided to march.

That’s what it all boils down to.

Russia is not the only country that has taken the measure of Obama and concluded that he is weak and lacking in strength and substance. America’s enemies, Russia included, all came to that conclusion years ago and have been taking advantage of him ever since. To say that his weakness and lack of strength and substance has placed and is placing America and America’s safety and national security in jeopardy is putting it mildly.

Americans haven’t seen anything yet though. They have a President with no brains or cojones and their enemies are going to make them pay a terrible price for putting him in office…for keeping him in office.

Bye-bye Ukraine.

Barack.

Oh, and here’s a message from me to all of America’s friends and allies around the world.

You’re on your own.
