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.
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.
