1. Recently he threatened the Egyptian military that we would cut off the money tap if they throw out President Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood. Nothing happened and it turns out that we are still going to give billions of dollars to Egypt.
2. A US ambassador was murdered and a US consulate was burned. He vowed to make those responsible pay and be brought to justice. It has taken almost one year to get the first sign some action is being taken to bring to justice those who did it.
Guardian Newspaper wrote an article it February 2010 titled: “Obama’s empty threats weaken US”. Among other things, the article pointed out that Obama, in May 2009, gave Iran until the end of the year (2009) to change course. Here we are more than half way through 2013 and nothing has changed.

3. He made threats to Iran if they did not stop their Nuclear program. Obama said in his state of the union address that if “Iran’s leaders continue to ignore their obligations, there should be no doubt: They will face growing consequences. That is a promise.”
Result – Only words, No actions.
4. Korea has stepped up their threats against America by continuing in their Nuclear race and increased provocation of South Korea. Again, there has been no real action to stop them
What have we taught our enemies? The word of the American government means nothing. The empty words of this administration are nothing more than an encouragement to our enemies. This is why we are seeing Al Quadea threaten our Embassies and Consulates in Muslim countries.
We should be sick and tired of this administration and the news media refusing to call things what they are. This is not a few radicals who have taken over a peaceful religion. I am convinced that people want to believe this lie. Until we see things as they really are we will continue to be weak.
The biggest threat seems to be coming from Yemen, one of the most orthodox and fundamental Islamic countries. They are not practicing a distorted version of Islam, they are practicing Islam exactly as Muhammad taught it.
Question – Who has the responsibility for to provide the security for foreign diplomats and their embassies? It is the host nation’s responsibility. Imagine if Americans rose up to storm and burn down the Yemen’s Embassy in Washington D.C. Who would meet them on the streets? The US security forces. They would shoot on their own to protect the interest of the a foreign Embassy. Why? Because that is the international law.
It would be nice if Yemen, and other Muslim countries, would tell the terrorists in their countries that to attack any foreign embassy is to attack them. They should be telling the terrorists that they will stand and fight to defend foreign embassies. Do we hear this? NO, we do not!
The world is watching the empty threats of Obama and it is giving them cause to step up their threats and actions of terrorism.
We need strong leadership that will stand up for what is right. Strong leadership, backed up by force, demands respect and fear. This is a biblical principle.
“When a strong man armed keepeth his palace, his goods are in peace:” Luke 11:21
If we stand ready to defend what is ours, be it our things or our principles, our goods will be in peace. Strength puts fear in evil people and brings peace.
A Fox News article reports that gun sales in Virginia is growing significantly and violent crime is dropping significantly‘Isn’t that interesting? More guns in the hands of the citizens of Virginia is resulting in lower crime. The Bible is right, peace comes through strength.

Let’s get back to the threat in Yemen.
If I were king for the day I would let Yemen, Saudi Arabia, Libya, and any other country, know that if our Embassies are attacked and we see little to no effort from the host country to protect them and instead they give aid to this militant faction and harbor them, I would lower the boom on them. I would take the line that President George W. Bush took. Bush had success in the war on Terror because he declared war not only on the terrorists, but also on the States who harbored the terrorists.
We need a leader that will stand strong against our enemies. We need a leader whose treats are more than just vain babblings. We need a Commander in Chief is strong and unafraid. We need a leader who will follow through with the treats he makes. He must not be foolish and make threats he cannot fulfill, but, when he makes a threat, he must carry it out if the enemy does not change his conduct.
Let’s get back to Libya. We are almost one year from the Benghazi incident and we are just now seeing some action from the White House.
They have finally filed criminal charges against several suspects. This really amounts to nothing. They are not detained, they are not arrested.
We have known who these people are and where they were for months. The administration kept saying they did not know where they are, but CNN reporters found them just a week ago and filed a report on it to the embarrassment of the White House.
Where was the protection from the government of Libya? They should be held responsible. They should be capturing and punishing those who attacked on our embassy.
The West keeps making serious mistakes in dealing with Islam. The President sold America on the idea that he was the best man for dealing with Islamic terrorism because of his background with Islam.
Here are a couple of verses that should give us understanding of what is happening in America, and in most of the West.
Proverbs 29:2 “When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn.”
Galatians 6:7 “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.”
Pray for America!
