“LINE IN THE SAND”
Here’s what you need to understand about diplomacy, all “BS” and politics aside, push comes to shove… you’re only as good as your word. If you draw a line in the sand and tell an enemy that if they cross that line… there will be military consequences, you better be ready to back that shit up!
Example: You can’t tell President Assad of Syria that if he uses chemical weapons ON HIS OWN PEOPLE… those are the consequences he faces. So, then he goes and does it. If you’re Barack Obama… YOU’RE LEFT WITH NO OPTION BUT TO ACT. If you’re the President of this Country and you don’t, he will have LOST ALL Credibility on a GLOBAL SCALE! And, this countries enemies will be further embolden to continue their EVIL ways. There a lot of you out there that don’t see the “BIG PICTURE”.
Let me break it down in simple terms, if you’ve warned the Bully on the Block that you’re going to kick his Ass… You’ve got to KICK His ASS!!!. It’s as simple as that. The President of the United States does not make threats… he makes promises.
