One brief before main post - The collapse of our society is increasing its pace:
In Montana, a man who had sex with a 14 year-old girl (An act of rape - plain and simple), who later committed suicide, has been given a sentence that literally cries out for justice. The judge, who clearly fears neither the judgement of society nor God, suspended all but a month of his 15-year prison sentence. What is worse, the judge essentially assigned equal blame to the victim:
"A former high school teacher in Montana who pleaded guilty to raping a 14-year-old student who later killed herself has been sentenced to 30 days in jail by a judge who said the victim was "older than her chronological age" and "as much in control of the situation" as the teacher."
"The Billings Gazette reports (http://bit.ly/1dmuHZo ) District Judge G. Todd Baugh sentenced 54-year-old Stacey Dean Rambold to 15 years in prison, with all but 31 days suspended. He also gave Rambold credit for one day already served.
The girl's mother repeatedly screamed, "You people suck!" and stormed out of the courtroom Monday......"
"We respect the court's sentencing decision. We obviously disagree with it, based on the recommendations my attorneys made, but it appears to be legally permissible," he said...."
I have been outspoekn against military moves against Syria for a long time, but until today I have focused on the obvious outcome that Christians will be tithe killed off or driven out of the country in which many families go back almost two thousand years. Glenn Beck noted the one reality that should bring fear to anyone who has no real concern for Religion of Peace practitioners being able to compete their pogrom.
Beck correctly notes that a military strike against Syria may well have dire consequences for the US. We may bring ourselves into a global war. Note too that we are certainly not the sole superpower anymore and that we are declining in strength. Someday, the world will tr urn on us and it will not be pretty. Russia* understandably is fed up with being ignored, China is fast growing in strength, and the EU would not be likely to come to out side if we get dealt our comeuppance.
I have little doubt that Obama and his crew would be quite happy with that result. Let's face it - there is no way that Obama could have been that stupid on that many occasions. Even stupid people sometimes make the right decision:
"Glenn Beck warned America in the strongest of terms on Tuesday that military intervention in Syria could lead to World War III, with the United States squaring off against China, Russia and Iran.
Beck’s warning came as Secretary of State John Kerry said it is “undeniable” that chemical weapons have been used in Syria, something President Barack Obama has called a “red line” that would change our approach to the nation’s civil war.................
“Why?” Beck asked. “Because today Russia and now China have added their name to the list of, ‘Don’t do anything in Syria.’ So now we have Russia, Iran and China telling us, ‘mind your own business.’”
Unless the U.S. is willing to get into World War III against the aforementioned powers and poke “another hornet’s nest” of Islamic extremism, Beck said, you have to be “out of your mind” to intervene.
“We don’t survive that,” he said.
“You go against China, who buys all of our debt?” he asked, adding that Russia has already begun turning arms shipments from America to the Middle East.
“Don’t screw with this,” he said. “This is World War III in the making.”
