Us and Them

Forgive me if what I say is seen as offensive… but I say these things only because I take offense to their INACTION.

What good does the North Atlantic Treaty Organization do us if it’s unable to prevent the death and displacement of 40 million people?

What value does the United Nations provide us if they stand SILENT as it happens?

(@3:10 in the video) “None of the U.N. agencies seem to be able to call out the aggressor by name.” 

Who would want to be part of the European Union, if they are so weak as to allow ONE MAN to invade another sovereign nation?

What State wouldn’t call for an end to this Union, if 40 million Ukrainian Civilians were left to fight a Nuclear Superpower ALONE… as our B-52 Bombers sit rotting on the tarmac.

The threat of World War III isn’t upon us… that threat has already PASSED. It’s already here. ONE MAN has declared it so, as he disregarded 80 years of progress toward peace and security.

The shots have already been fired. We are IN that fight as of this moment. Whether we choose to engage, whether we choose to ignore… that fight has arrived, and it will be seen throughout history as our CHOICE.

The decisions we made. The actions we took. The lines we allowed to be crossed… the RESULTS of our decisions. Etched in stone. Memorialized annually, at cemeteries throughout the WORLD.

Where World Leaders will trot out, inconvenienced by the RAIN and SNOW, and give impassioned speeches… shedding tears as an aged soldier stands and salutes…

“If ONLY they had acted! If ONLY they had known!”

—Some Future President

… of some future organization or republic. Looking BACK through tear-stained eyes. Proudly speaking of their future. Proclaiming NEVER AGAIN… as it has been done, so many times before…

And those failed unions and organizations will be dissolved… PROUDLY, as they allowed the carnage to occur. Indicted and convicted, in the hearts and minds of every future historian, as the ultimate cause… of a WAR that was allowed to happen.

Hitler’s actions didn’t start WWII. Tanks and planes may have invaded those first few countries, but it was allowed to happen… with the stroke of a PEN.

It was all allowed to happen. Inside Hallowed Halls. Behind ancient WOODEN DESKS. They SAT… and millions died.

The League of Nations did great work… until they did not.

NATO saved countless lives… until they did not.

The United Nations helped keep the peace… until they did not.

The United States of America was the Home of the BRAVE…

… until it was not.

If ONLY they had known! If ONLY they had ACTED… but sadly, they could not.

They FEARED what might come from their actions, instead of doing what was RIGHT. Instead of doing what was necessary… to prevent what would come, if they did not ACT.

“I only regret that I have but one life to lose for my country.”

And for what would it happen, when it could have been so easily avoided…

The words written, on the automobile license plates of the Great State of New Hampshire come to mind… ‘Live FREE or Die’.

Now, why don’t we back down off this LEDGE… before someone really gets hurt.
