Barack's Baptism

Today Barack Obama is going to receive his first full secret briefing from US intelligence agencies on the threats his administration faces, as ABC News notes here. Many have said that within days of these briefings, past Presidents seem to have aged quite a few years.

President Obama is going to painfully discover that no matter even when the US has been right,just,fair and generous, there still exist a myriad of vicious enemies of freedom trying to destroy the USA.

The reaction from Iran today to his TV offer of "extending a hand" was calumny, bile, anger and insolent demands the US "apologise" for "past crimes", just one component of the hatred some regimes perpetually have for the USA - which Obama will find all his sweet words and charisma cannot change.

Obama will wake up to the painful realization that the USA cannot just be "liked", it also needs to be respected and fear of power is one ( vital) component of respect that he has never acknowledged.

Speak softly and carry a big stick, Barry as a former US President once said. You are going need it sooner rather than later.

After this briefing, Obama will change a lot of his mind about George W Bush, if he acknowledges it or not.

Hey there! Hope I’m not bothering you, and if I am…just hit that delete button :) I don’t mean to spam you, which is kind of what I’m doing but I mean no harm! My friend has launched a site called AFaithfulSoldier.com honoring our country’s military. Its basically a community for anyone related to or in the military and in it she sells Dog Tags (Personalized) for a great cause. 15% of all the sales goes to Soldier’s Angels charity which helps the families of people in the military or injured soldiers that come back.

Not trying to convince you to buy anything…BUT if you do have a free minute to take a look at the site and find that you like it...I was hoping and going out on a limb here to ask if you could perhaps place a link somewhere on your site or make some minor mention anywhere, it would be such a great help! Of course, in return I'll have your link added to the site as well. Also, Soldier’s Angels will be releasing a press release about AFaithfulSoldier, so it would be great to get as many supporters for this great cause as possible! Let me know your thoughts if you have any on the matter, and again, if I bothered you, I apologize!!! I wouldn’t be doing this if it wasn’t for a good cause. You have a great site btw, keep up the great work!
