Obama Talks to West Point Cadets About the Importance of Combating "Climate Change" Etc. - Video 5/22/10
Here is another clip from President Obama's Commencement Address at West Point today, where he called for a "New International Order" to combat "violent extremism and insurgency, stopping the spread of Nuclear Weapons, securing Nuclear Materials, combating a changing climate and sustaining global growth, helping countries feed themselves and care for their sick, preventing conflict and healing wounds. If we are successful in these tasks, that will lessen conflicts around the world."
Oh brother. What a bunch of left-wing gobbledygook. Essentially, Obama is setting forth a doctrine that the U.S. is not going to act unilaterally, but is going to depend on this abstract "New International Order" to so bring the world together that there won't be any further conflicts that require military action.
Notice Obama's use of "violent extremism," rather than any mention of the Islamic Jihadist ideology that is the real enemy we face. How many Hindu, Christian, Jewish, Buddhist etc. "violent extremists" have attacked our people? They have all been Islamic.
How sad that these wonderful cadets did not have a more inspiring speaker to send them off to battle. Instead of hearing about a "New International Order," they deserved to hear from a Commander-in-Chief who was focused on them and their ability to keep America safe, rather than about fighting "climate change" and "sustaining global growth."
