Before Obama took office people who were familiar with the men who groomed him for office accused him of having communistic tendencies.
Since he’s been in office Obama’s moved us ever further to the left, implementing a wide range of marxist style policies which have fundamentally altered the tapestry of American life.
And in recent months Obama has really been ratcheting up attempts to integrate American life with communist countries nationwide all while turning his back on the few allies we do have.
You saw this when Obama went to Cuba a few months ago to help ease tensions between our nations…and now he’s doing something similar with North Vietnam.
In a show of naiveté Obama’s moved forward with an initiative to end a ban on North Vietnam’s ability to receive military weapons from the U.S.
Not that you’d need a reminder but this is the same country who maliciously inflicted untold harm upon hundreds of thousands of men, women and soldiers for 20 long years.
So why is this happening?
In a joint news conference in Hanoi with Vietnamese President Tran Dai Quang, Obama said that the removal of the ban on lethal weapons was part of a deeper defense cooperation with the country and dismissed suggestions it was aimed at countering China’s growing strength in the region.
Instead, it was the desire to continue normalizing relations between the United States and Vietnam and to do away with a ban “based on ideological division between our two countries,” he said.
This may or may not be true, but Obama’s move to lift the ban preventing the communist nation from receiving military weapons seems to be pretty nebulous.
China doesn’t seem to be irked by it all that much:
t a press briefing Monday by China’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said that it was appropriate for the ban to be lifted.
“(The) arms sales ban was a product of the Cold War and should no longer exist,” she told reporters. “We hope the lifting of all such bans will benefit regional peace and development. And we are happy to see the United States and Vietnam develop normal cooperative relations.”
However the question about how it makes U.S. military veterans feel is another thing altogether.
What’s the point in selling weapons to Vietnam? It’s not like the money made will do anything to alleviate the amount he and his liberal cronies spend daily…nor does it do anything for Vietnam and their national safety as they’d likely link arms with China if forced to.
