In a statement which is bound to be surprising to the US military personnel, allies around the world, and the residents of Okinawa who probably did not know that they had a new master, US President Obama today revealed that US troops are, in fact, “fighting on my behalf.“
But Mr. Obama actually did bare his soul unintentionally today (perhaps the Biden disease is catching) with his astonishing characterization of American fighting men and women, whom he referred to as “those soldiers or airmen or marines or sailors who are out there fighting on my behalf.” Really?
Really, indeed. Most Americans, and especially American soldiers, have apparently been misled as to their belief that these soldiers were fighting in defense of the American nation and its people. Likewise, Okinawans had assumed that the US troops stationed there were on duty to provide for the defense of the Japanese nation as well as acting as a forward guard for American national defense. All of America’s other allies, many of which have sacrificed their own children in what we should now call “Obama’s wars” in the Middle East, have also been duped by the messianic global leader.
But now we know.
