Investors Business Daily Op-Ed: “American Decline: An Iranian ship fires rockets within a mile of a U.S. aircraft carrier. Under President Obama’s nuclear appeasement deal, the Iranians know they have little to fear from America.
What should be taken away from the Iranian Revolutionary Guards firing unguided rockets 1,500 yards from the aircraft carrier Harry S. Truman during exercises within the vital oil transport route of the Strait of Hormuz over the weekend — reportedly giving our forces a warning of only 23 seconds — is that Tehran wasn’t afraid of inadvertently hitting a U.S. vessel.
After all, what is there to fear from the feckless American giant?”
Opinion: A rather unusual article for wishing you a happy New Year but the year is getting off to a rough start. The decline of American respect and authority that resulted from leading from behind in Libya (2011) and the red line fiasco in Syria (2013), the removal of all US forces from Iraq, and the rise of ISIS can all be attributed to feckless leadership and a bungling Department of State.
It is hard to imagine a change in leadership this coming year will make a difference, and I keep coming back to the same conclusion … it’s time.
Jesus said that this generation (Matthew 24:34) would not pass away until all He warned about would be fulfilled. The generation is the one that would witness the budding of the fig tree, or Biblical Israel.
The fig tree blossomed on May 14, 1948.
