‘Whether we like it or not’
At the close of this week’s two-day Nuclear Security Summit, President Obama was trying to answer a question regarding the United State’s leadership position in the quest for nuclear disarmament. He asserted that the U.S. finds itself in the driver’s seat because, “Whether we like it or not, we remain a dominant military superpower.” Initially, the remark garnered little attention. Slowly however, the quote is gaining traction and people are wondering exactly what he meant.
Are we to assume that he doesn’t like our status as a military superpower? Would he seriously prefer that we downgrade our armed forces to the point where we defer our military responsibilities to other, more capable, countries? John McCain called the quote “incredible,” but his surprise at the statement is the only thing that’s really shocking. Since his inauguration, President Obama has repeatedly made decisions that can only lead one to the conclusion that he views American leadership with a sense of shame. Our position as a global trailblazer is, “whether we like it or not,” going to be the first casualty in Obama’s plan to “rebuild America.”
