Obama’s Allegiance To? Remember This? American History & Flag Fail [PHOTO]

Former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani has questioned if Mr. Barack Obama loves America.

Mayor Giuliani saying to the crowd, quote, “I do not believe, and I know this is a horrible thing to say, but I do not believe that the president loves America. He doesn’t love you and he doesn’t love me. He wasn’t brought up the way you were brought up and I was brought up, through love of this country.” The backlash was quick and it was harsh. FoxNews

Based upon Obama’s own words, actions and failures to protect Americans, we’d have to concur with America’s Mayor Guiliani.

Filmmaker, Dinesh D’Souza, points out in depth the expanse of Obama’s seething ingrained disdain of American colonialism in such examples as Obama returning the bust of Winston Churchhill back to Britain as one of his first official acts as US President:

Could this anti-colonialist loathing for the wealthy nations of the West explain Obama’s apology tours? His odd choice in the first 40 days of his administration to return to England a bust of Winston Churchill, the man who crushed Kenya’s Mau Mau independence uprising in the 1950s and allegedly was responsible for torturing Obama’s grandfather? His State Department’s policy-reversing urging of negotiations between Argentina and the U.K. over the fate of the Falkland Islands? WND

Obama does not love America now, or as she was intended to be, a beacon for Freedom and for The Gospel of Jesus Christ and freedom for all seeking to worship The Lord as they sought fit without fear of tyrants overly taxing them, enslaving them, torturing them, imprisoning them, beheading or burning them for their Judeo Christian faith in The Judeo Christian Trinity of: The Father God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, God The Only Son Jesus who was God become flesh through The Virgin Mary, and God in the person of the Holy Spirit left behind to give us Power to do what Jesus did for the sole Glory of God in Jesus Name.

Our nation’s history provides overwhelming evidence that America was birthed upon Judeo-Christian principles. The first act of America’s first Congress in 1774 was to ask a minister to open with prayer and to lead Congress in the reading of four chapters of the Bible. In 1776, in approving the Declaration of Independence, our founders acknowledged that all men “are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights…” and noted that they were relying “on the protection of Divine Providence” in the founding of this country. John Quincy Adams said, “The Declaration of Independence laid the cornerstone of human government upon the first precepts of Christianity.” Also, the signers of the 1783 Treaty of Paris, which ended the Revolutionary War, insisted the treaty begin with the phrase, “In the name of the most holy and undivided Trinity.” USNews

“We have this day restored the Sovereign to whom alone men ought to be obedient. He reigns in Heaven, and with a propitious eye beholds his subjects assuming that freedom of thought and dignity of self-direction which He bestowed on them. From the rising to the setting sun, may His kingdom come!” – Samuel Adams (after signing Declaration of Independence)

Do You Know Why You’re Celebrating July 4th

Ever wondered when you are celebrating the 4th of July, why you were celebrating? It might surprise you to learn only 31% of people under 30 know that 1776 is the year that the United States broke away from Great

On July 4, 1776, we claimed our independence from Britain and A Republic was born. Every day thousands leave their homeland to come to the “land of the free and the home of the brave” so they can begin their American Dream.

When he penned the Declaration of Independence in 1776, Thomas Jefferson had an inkling of the consequences it held for the 13 colonies, who were announcing their intention to break free from the shackles of British rule. What he and the other signers may not have anticipated, however, were the widespread effects the powerful words would also have around the world. The promise was evident in the famous phrases scrawled near the top of the document:

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

Some Neat Facts About the History of Our Nations Independence:

1.The Declaration of Independence, signed in 1776, was meant to justify a revolt against the British, with a list of charges against the British king

2.The Fourth of July commemorates the adoption of the Declaration of Independence. It was initially adopted by Congress on July 2, 1776, but then it was revised and the final version was adopted two days later.

Turkeys Goal: Defeat by Dehydration #Syria, #USTroopsBack in Iraq? & USA’s #Security vs #Gitmo5

Zalabiya,Euphrates.Syria.River

For the first time ever, in violation of international norms, Turkey has cut off ALL fresh water supplies to Syria and Iraq from the dams supplied by the Euphrates river. Turkey never signed the Convention on the Law of the Non-Navigational Uses of International Watercourses adopted by the United Nation’s recognized Members. Turkey’s government considers this a private trans-border issue therefore no other countries have jurisdictional authority to interfere.

ataturkdam

The Euphrates river (Firat in Turkish) rises from Eastern Anatolia, flows generally southward through southeastern Turkey around Sanliurfa, Adiyaman and Gaziantep provinces, goes across the border into Syria and Iraq passing from Mesopotamia, and empties into the Persian Gulf in Basra after joining with the Tigris river in Shatt al-Arab. Its total lenght is approximately 2.800 km (1.740 mi), out of which 971 km (603 mi) are in Turkey.

Al-akhbar reports:

Turkey is one of the only three countries in the world (along with China and Burundi) that opposed the Convention on the Law of the Non-Navigational Uses of International Watercourses adopted by the General Assembly of the United Nations in 1997.

The lack of constant water pressure may cause the dams to collapse as happens in the case of sink holes in varied geographic locations around the world.

Meanwhile, water supplies in auxiliary reservoirs in al-Khafsa are close to being depleted and the reservoirs are expected to run out of water completely by tonight or tomorrow morning at the latest. This threatens to leave seven million Syrians without access to water. Also, Tishrin Dam stopped receiving any water which blocked its electricity generating turbines, decreasing the power supply in Aleppo and its countryside, further intensifying the already severe imbalance in the power supply.

In Raqqa, the northern side of Lake Assad is today completely out of service. Two million Syrians living in the region covering the villages of Little Swaydiya to the east until al-Jarniya to the west could lose their drinking water supply. “Losing water supplies in the dam means that the silt in the lake will dry off which would pressure its structure, subjecting it to fissures and eventually total collapse,” Al-Akhbar sources warned, adding “it is crucial to shut down the dam to stop its collapse.”

What does this mean for troops still stationed in Iraq? Do we even have US troops still stationed in Iraq? We may indeed have US Troops back in Iraq by urgent request of the Iraqi government itself. The AP reported that 20 troops were killed on May 11th, 2014 in Baghdad yet did not specify which troops. But didn’t the Obama administration officially pull out all US Troops from Iraq in 2011? Well, yes…but

According to ForeignPolicy.com, the United States government has sold over $14,000,000,000.00 (Fourteen Billion Dollars) worth of high tech heavy duty weaponry and planes to Iraq including “Apache attack helicopters, M1A1 tanks, F-16 fighter jets, Hellfire missiles, small arms, and a raft of small aircraft, some of which provide surveillance capabilities.”

F-16 at Dawn

In exchange, Iraq was supposed to be looking at the larger international implications of its maneuvers.

Previously all US military were expunged from Iraq with fanfare as if we were becoming unwanted ‘occupiers.’ Yet now, in the utmost of irony, Iraq is pleading with US Administration to lend it more support, particularly with reconnaissance and weaponized drones and even feet on the ground from our military. Iraq had stated all along that we had a common enemy, al Qaeda.

Based upon the recent developments of Obama’s incomprehensible actions of trading five top, highly trained enemy Islamic Jihadists from Gitmo for one US Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl who may have been allegedly turned into an Islamist himself (and reportedly has a father who has sympathetic ties to Afghanistan and Islamic goals and ideals which are themselves at enmity with our US Government), it would not be clear to an outsider to think that we are at war with al Qaeda. Sgt Bowe Bergdahl’s own platoon now state for the record that he planned on walking from Afghanistan to India with compass in hand. Bergdahl was, in their firm opinion, a deserter. And six fellow heroic soldiers in the 1st Battalion, 501st Parachute Infantry Regiment died attempting to find Bowe after his capture by the Taliban.

Their names are listed in order to remember and honor their utmost sacrifice for laying down their lives to defend Freedom for our Republic of The United States of America:

Private First Class Morris Walker

Staff Sergeant Clayton Bowen

Staff Sergeant Kurt Curtiss

Second Lieutenant Darryn Andrews

Private First Class Matthew Martinek

Staff Sergeant Michael Murphrey

It is important to name all these names. For the veterans of the units that lost these men, Bergdahl’s capture and the subsequent hunt for him will forever tie to their memories, and to a time in their lives that will define them as people. He has finally returned. Those men will never have the opportunity. ~ Nathan Bradley Bethea

American Freedoms at Great Risk Today: 150 years ago, Lincoln Changed the American Psyche

271 words delivered by Lincoln studied by successors as a guide.  But We the People should take it to heart!

Actual Address Delivered at the Dedication of the Cemetery at Gettysburg on November 19, 1863 at bottom of this post.  Please share.  
150 years on, Abraham Lincoln's Gettysburg address still has the power to inspire

Lincoln loved God as he clearly stated.

that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom — and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.

It’s your choice in a free nation to love the Lord or not, that’s liberty.  If we stop being a country that elevates the individual freedom, the power will continue to shift more toward government and continue to erode our individual liberties. Daily it should becoming more evident by the general public. But is it? It is obvious that Progressivism never works, and never has worked anywhere in the world as the video in this link clearly explains.  And every time the progressive model has been tried, and politically starts to take root, it becomes irreversible until the country dies as Tytler clearly pronounces and proves those who are willing to do their own due diligence and look at the historical record  here is an article  that poses the very question “Is America in her Death Throes or Readying for a New Revolution? – Have Faith Tytler states

A democracy is always temporary in nature; it simply cannot exist as a permanent form of government. A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover that they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally collapse due to loose fiscal policy, which is always followed by a dictatorship.

When we allow a president like Obama continue to lie and shred the constitution we propel ourselves down the road to utter failure. ObamaCare Not “Law of The Land” ONLY House Can Tax!  It is however another incremental step toward tyranny and loss of freedom.

Today is the Anniversary of the date Abraham Lincoln shared the Gettysburg Address, sadly now, as you read you’ll see perhaps even feel the true regression of character and truth that have taken hold in our Great and Exceptional United States of America. God bless America, God Bless Americans!

Jennifer Weber can’t read the Gettysburg Address to her students at the University of Kansas without taking a risk.

She chokes up a little, though she’s a Civil War author and historian. “A new nation, conceived in liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.”She starts losing it right about there.

I’m not much of a crying person,” she said. read more

Barack “The Failure” Hussein Obama Loses Saudi Arabia As Ally

Picking sides: Russian President Vladimir Putin, seen here with bin Sultan, has sided with the Syrian government in the conflict

The Obama Administration’s War on America is till paying Him and the Socialist left huge dividends.  Obama and Company have made enemies of almost every good ally the US has (had). The punk MSMedia have licked BO’s boots every step of the way. Yes, his “failed” presidency remains going strong as he continues to “fundementally Transforma America”  -PBN

h/t AtlasShrugs – Saudi Arabia gave a clear sign of its displeasure over Obama’s foreign policy last week when it rejected a coveted two-year term on the U.N. Security Council in a display of anger over the failure of the international community to end the war in Syria and act on other Middle East issues.

Prince Turki indicated that Saudi Arabia will not reverse that decision, which he said was a result of the Security Council’s failure to stop Assad and implement its own decision on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. read more

Obamacare DOA? – Federal Judge Green-lights Big Lawsuit

A federal judge refused to dismiss case that may render
Obamacare Dead On Arrival.

Oops: President Obama appeared with 13 Obamacare supports Monday in the White House rose garden, but only three of them have actually enrolled in the health insurance exchangesOnly three people in this photo-op actually enrolled in Obamacare

  • Small-business plaintiffs say the government is treating all 50 states the same even though Congress allowed them to opt out – and 36 did
  • The IRS is granting insurance subsidies to taxpayers in the ‘refusenik’ states, even though the text of the Obamacare law doesn’t allow it
  • A federal judge denied the government’s motion to dismiss the case on Tuesday
  • He also refused, however, to issue an injunction barring the Obama administration from implementing the law while the case moves forward

ObamaCare Not “Law of The Land” ONLY House Can Tax!
  Only the House of Representatives in Congress can write a law that creates revenue through a tax, per Article 1 Section 7, of the US Constitution. ObamaCare was presented as a penalty. Thereby rendering it null and void.

Tea party conservatives have long pushed for an end to Obamacare, and the lawsuit might give them the victory they're after

The Affordable Care Act forbids the federal government from enforcing the law in any state that opted out of setting up its own health care exchange, according to a group of small businesses whose lawsuit got a key hearing Monday in federal court.

The Obama administration, according to their lawsuit, has ignored that language in the law, enforcing all of its provisions even in states where the federal government is operating the insurance marketplaces on the error-plagued Healthcare.gov website.

Thirty-six states chose not to set up their exchanges, a move that effectively froze Washington, D.C. out of the authority to pay subsidies and other pot-sweeteners to convince citizens in those states to buy medical insurance.

But the IRS overstepped its authority by paying subsidies in those states anyway, say the businesses and their lawyers.

Tea party conservatives have long pushed for an end to Obamacare, and the lawsuit might give them the victory they’re after.

The IRS has been offering tax incentives to citizens in all 50 states to get them to enroll in Obamacare, the plaintiffs say, although the Affordable Care act forbids it in the 36 states that have opted out. The IRS has been offering tax incentives to citizens in all 50 states to get them to enroll in Obamacare, the plaintiffs say, although the Affordable Care act forbids it in the 36 states that have opted out. Without the subsidies, the employer mandate doesn’t go into effect

The subsidies serve as a trigger that determines who has to comply with the now-famous individual and employer mandates. So, the lawsuit claims, the Obama administration illegally enforced the Affordable Care Act – suddenly making millions of taxpayers and small employers subject to paying fines if they don’t play ball.

The Affordable Care Act authorizes subsidies only for policies purchased ‘through an Exchange established by the State.’

A different section of the law empowers the federal government to set up its own exchanges for each state that chose not establish one.

But government lawyers have argued that ‘Congress made clear that an exchange established by the federal government stands in the shoes of the exchange that a state chooses not to establish.’

The Treasury Department, they contend, ‘has reasonably interpreted the Act to provide for eligibility for the premium tax credits for individuals in every state, regardless of which entity operates the exchange.’

Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius is the named defendant in the legal action, which claims her agency is ignoring 36 states' desire to opt out of enforcing the Affordable Care Act

But that amounts to the federal government ignoring the letter of the law, lawyer Sam Kazman says.

And ‘without those subsidies, the employer mandate isn’t triggered,’ he told MailOnline.

And that could make the entire Obamacare system unsustainable.

Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius is the named defendant in the legal action, which claims her agency is ignoring 36 states’ desire to opt out of enforcing the Affordable Care Act

Kazman is general counsel for the Competitive Enterprise Institute, a free-market think tank that is coordinating the case.

Attorney Sam Kazman says the federal government is illegally subsidizing health insurance in all the states that chose not to set up their own health care marketplaces. And without the subsidies, the entire Obamacare system could fail

‘The IRS cannot rewrite the law that Congress passed,’ said Tom Miller, resident fellow at another think, the tank American Enterprise Institute.

‘Its regulation expressly flouts the statutory text of the Affordable Care Act, the intent of Congress and the reasoned choices of [36] states.’

‘The fiscal impact’ of denying the Obamacare system millions of dollars in lost fines, ‘while sizable, wouldn’t be large enough to bring down the house,’ Kazman added. The poltical one, however, is.’

‘You’d have 34 “refusenik” states exempting their employers and many of their citizens from the employer mandate and portions of the individual mandate,’ he explained.

‘You’d have companies in participating states considering whether to move their operations’ to states where they don’t have to obey the Affordable Care Act. ‘And you might even have some of those states seeking to undo their choice to participate.’

3 Years Ago Obama Bans Words: Islamist & Terrorist Terms Tied To Muslim Nations

http://obama-and-islam.blogspot.com/

USA.  What exactly has changed since 3 years ago til now? There has been more violence, more carnage, more terror attacks plaguing the United States on US soil than ever before.  Obama and his Czars and his personal Socialist/Fascist Islamic allies such as Egypt’s Morsi have only been emboldened and inspired by the lack of leadership to protect US Sovereignty, US Troops, US $$$ and US Lives.  Words DO matter.-PBN

Publishers Note: Some of these links appear to have been scrubbed since the original post-PBN

The Obama administration has just announced its intent to ban all words that allude to Islam from important national security documents. Put differently, the Obama administration has just announced its intent to ban all knowledge and context necessary to confront and defeat radical Islam (news much welcomed by Islamist organizations [1] like CAIR [2]). While this move may reflect a naively therapeutic administration — an Obama advisor once suggested that Winnie the Pooh [3] should inform U.S foreign policy — that Obama, the one U.S. president who best knows [4] that politically correct niceties will have no effect on the Muslim world, is enforcing this ban is further troubling.

An Associated Press report [5] has the disturbing details:

President Barack Obama’s advisers plan to remove terms such as “Islamic radicalism” from a document outlining national security strategy and will use the new version to emphasize that the U.S. does not view Muslim nations through the lens of terrorism, counterterrorism officials say.

First off, how, exactly, does the use of terms such as “Islamic radicalism” indicate that the U.S. views “Muslim nations through the lens of terrorism”? It is the height of oversensitivity to think that the so-called “Muslim street” can be antagonized by (ultimately accurate) words in technical U.S. documents — documents they don’t know or care about — especially since the Arabic media itself often employs such terms. Surely we can use “Islamic radicalism” to define, well, Islamic radicals, without simultaneously viewing all Muslims “through the lens of terrorism”? Just as surely as we can use words like “Nazism” to define white supremacists, without viewing all whites through the lens of racism?

The AP report continues:

Obama’s speechwriters have taken inspiration from an unlikely source: former President Ronald Reagan. Visiting communist China in 1984, Reagan spoke at Fudan University in Shanghai about education, space exploration and scientific research. He discussed freedom and liberty. He never mentioned communism or democracy.

The analogy is flawed. For starters, in Reagan’s era, the Soviet Union, not China, was America’s prime antagonist — just as today, Islamic radicals, not Muslims, are America’s prime enemy. Moreover, unlike Obama, who would have the U.S. bend over backwards — or, in his case, just bend over [6] — to appease Muslims, Reagan regularly lambasted the Soviet Union, dubbing it the “evil empire.” Finally, the Chinese never attacked America, unlike Islamic radicals, who not only have attacked it, but daily promise it death and destruction — all in the name of Islam.

The ultimate problem in the White House’s new “words-policy,” however, is reflected in this excerpt from the report:

The change [i.e., linguistic obfuscation] would be a significant shift in the National Security Strategy, a document that previously outlined the Bush Doctrine of preventive war. It currently states, “The struggle against militant Islamic radicalism is the great ideological conflict of the early years of the 21st century.”

No doubt this important document will soon say something totally meaningless like “The struggle against extremism is the great ideological conflict of the early years of the 21st century.” Such changes bode ill for the future. For it is one thing to carefully choose your words when directly addressing Muslims; it is quite another to censor American analysts and policymakers from using the necessary terms that conceptualize who the enemy is and what he wants.

The situation is already dire. There is already a lamentable lack [7] of study concerning Muslim war doctrine in the curriculum of American military studies, including in the Pentagon [8] andU.S. Army War College [9]. Obama’s more aggressive censorship program will only exacerbate matters: another recently released strategic document, the QDR [10], nary mentions anything remotely related to Islam — even as it stresses climate change [11], which it sees as an “accelerant of instability and conflict” around the world.

At any rate, as I have argued [12] several [13] times [14] before [15], the U.S. government needs to worry less about which words appease Muslims — another governmental memo [16] warns against “offending,” “insulting,” or being “confrontational” to Muslims — and worry more about providing its own citizenry with accurate knowledge concerning its greatest enemy.

In short, knowledge is inextricably linked to language. The more generic speech becomes, the less precise the knowledge it imparts; conversely, the more precise the language, the more precise the knowledge. In the conflict against Islamic radicalism — there, I said it — to acquire accurate knowledge, which is essential to victory, we need to begin with accurate language.

This means U.S. intelligence analysts and policymakers need to be able to use, and fully appreciate the significance of, words related to Islam — starting with the word “Islam” itself, i.e., submission.

It means the U.S. military needs to begin expounding and studying Islamic war doctrine — without fear of reprisals [17].

In sum, it means America’s leadership needs to take that ancient dictum [18] — “Know thy enemy” — seriously.

Deplorably enough, nearly a decade after the Islamist-inspired attacks of 9/11, far from knowing its enemy, the U.S. government is banning itself from merely acknowledging its enemy, which is doubly problematic, as knowledge begins with acknowledgment.

Nor is there much room for optimism: if the Obama administration can easily expose America to attack by reducing our physical defenses [19], surely a subversion of our intellectual safeguards — that is, a subversion of something as abstract as knowledge — will go unchecked.

The USA is The World’s Best Friend – By Lord Monckton

God Bless you Lord Monckton. You are truly lead by The Truth and can always be counted on in a time of need. Rare is a man like you indeed, and this dying world need’s more rare men like you to step up.  We Love You. Your friends at PBN

DUNEDIN, New Zealand – The Boston bombers, whoever they were, do not seem to have intended to murder anyone in particular. Like the Muslim extremists who blew up the World Trade Center 12 years ago, they intended to hurt America.

They sought to maim or kill the marathon runners because those young athletes were, to them, glowingly symbolic of the vigor and virility of that great nation that one of your celebrated poets magnificently described as “the athletic democracy.”

Success has always been envied, then resented, then despised, then hated: hated especially by those who have failed. And America’s success is all the more hated because it is – on any measure – exceptional.

No other nation on Earth has given such wholehearted consent to Disraeli’s maxim: “Any man may succeed in our society who defers to the principle of that society, which is to aspire and to excel.”

In Socialist Britain, a Labor supporter who does not own a Ferrari will sneer at one if it passes in the street and try to think of ways to stop people owning Ferraris.

In free-market America, anyone who does not own a Ferrari will cheer at one as it passes in the street and try to think of ways to own one.

The dismal dictators who still govern most of the planet strive to prevent their subjects from ever getting to hear about the freedom and democracy of America. While the U.S. Constitution stands, uneasy lies the head of every tyrant.

Of Britain’s great Empire it may not unfairly be said that those who won dominion over palm and pine by what Enoch Powell used to call “the peaceful accident of trade” did so with more than half an eye to their own commercial advantage. Clive of India and Rhodes of Rhodesia were men of business, and brilliant at it.

Yet the Pax Americana that has gently but definitely supplanted the now-vanished Pax Britannica is inconspicuously but again definitely altruistic. The profit motive may sometimes be present, but the will to share with the rest of the world the merry chaos of free-market democracy is always there, though seldom noticed and still more seldom appreciated.

Let us, then, rise for a few moments above the miseries that are the price of success: the Boston bombings, the Soebarkah White House, the antimatter-filled Treasury, the near-worthless currency, the rising sea-level of uncontrolled immigration.

Let us count instead the blessings that America has unselfishly, unstintingly brought not upon herself but upon the rest of the world.

Who was it, when Churchill said “Give us the tools and we shall finish the job,” that came generously to the aid of Britain and Europe during the war for the very survival of all that is British and all that is European against the monstrous might of Hitler’s hate-filled legions? Uncle Sam.

Who was it, when Keynes besought Congress for the funds to create the first welfare state, that lent such large sums at low interest to a Britain bankrupted by war that we only repaid the last tranche of that long-outstanding debt a couple of years ago? Our Uncle across the water.

Who was it that paid – and paid for two long generations – the lion’s share of the heavy cost of maintaining forceful vigilance on Europe’s long eastern frontier with the murderous tyranny of Soviet Russia? Good old Uncle again.

Who was it that that then paid – and paid generously – to assist the newly freed nations of Eastern Europe to rebuild themselves after Ron Reagan and Margaret Thatcher had brought down the Berlin Wall? Uncle Sam.

Who was it that led – and led gallantly – the task force that expelled Saddam Hussein from Kuwait and then, a decade later, expelled his hated despotism from Iraq as well? Play it again, Sam.

Who was it that led – and led courageously – the rebuilding of Kuwait, of Iraq, of Afghanistan?

Who is it that many nations across the globe have been able to thank for generous assistance – whether civil or military – that was unfailingly given whenever it was requested? Everyone’s Uncle.

Who is that still sets and exemplifies today the standards of life, liberty, prosperity and democracy to which men of goodwill everywhere aspire? It is you, Uncle.

As your nation grieves for those whose lives the bombers so wantonly and so pointlessly stole, and as it cares for those in whom serious injury has snatched away youth and strength, never apologize for being not only a successful nation but also a good nation, and a good friend to all the Earth.

Know, too, that we who admire America, and who have so many reasons for gratitude that my little list above is notable more for what it omits than for what it contains, shall always be thankful for your courage in daring to be to the world’s best friend.

We will remember your gallant men at arms who, shoulder to shoulder with our own, have given their all, time and again, on freedom’s farthest frontiers. We will remember also the innocent victims of Boston and of many more unspeakable acts of terror against your citizens.

Their deaths will not have been in vain: for they remind not only America’s many friends but also its enemies how much you have risked to keep the world safe; how much you have paid to make it prosperous; how much you have striven to give it the chance of freedom. In this and every hour of grief, God bless America!
