A U.S. president who placed his own interests above those of the nation he leads (WORLD TRIBUNE) Lev Navrozov 04/20/12)

Before Hitler invaded Russia, a fair answer to the question “Who’s
going to win World War II?” would be Hitler’s Germany. Its military
science and technology were developed more than in any other country.
But history ruled otherwise — Hitler was defeated.
Germany’s “military leader”, Adolf Hitler, considered himself to be
the most intelligent human being in the history of mankind and, of
course, the greatest military leader.
Germany was the country in which nuclear technology was born and a
project to develop nuclear weapons was under way, a sufficient
condition to carry out the dictator’s ambitions to conquer the world.
Instead, Hitler invaded Russia in 1941, before the nuclear weapons
project was realized. He lost the war and consequently committed
Some territories inhabited today still include social structures that
existed millennia ago. The word “slave” has become publicly
unacceptable, yet even now slavery prospers in some countries under
such names as “socialism” or “communism.”
The appearance of a new social structure such as freedom and the
success of the free countries have been the result of unprecedented
military development of sophisticated scientific discoveries. But the
emergence of the USSR and later of the “People’s Republic of China”
(PRC) demonstrates how slow, self-contradictory, and convoluted is
the progress of freedom.
Despite the fact that the physicists in Germany were successfully
developing the new, highly sophisticated weapons, Hitler did not seem
to know or care about them. His ignorance and stupidity, however,
turned out to be a blessing for the entire world by saving it from
the ruthless and ignorant dictator. That purported “conqueror of the
world” ended up killing himself.
Of course, the willingness and determination of a country to win a
war are of great importance in its defense. However, military science
and technology and military preparedness of a country are sometimes
more important for winning a war than the sympathy or hostility of
the majority of its population toward that war.
The above-mentioned factor kept going down in importance as the
disparity between the armament of technically advanced and backward
countries suggested that a country could easily perish unless its
weapons were most advanced.
In today’s world, freedom and democracy closely coexist with the most
vicious totalitarian regimes, and these two opposites are pitted
against each other in an ongoing deadly battle.
Those who live in free, democratic countries take their liberties and
their way of life for granted—they enjoy themselves, they are lax,
oblivious to the fact that their very existence is envied and
threatened by the owners of slave countries such as the “People’s
Republic of China,” North Korea, or Iran.
Not so long ago, the gap between the level of development of military
power in the most and least scientifically and technologically
developed countries was far greater than it is now. Then it became
easier and more affordable for a less developed country to acquire
weapons and military know-how from highly developed countries rather
than develop and produce them on their own.
It is fashionable these days to promote “friendship and cooperation”
among all countries, irrespective of whether they are free
democracies or pretending they are free or just outright
dictatorships, by means of trade, tourism, scientific conferences,
exchange of scientists, students, and all those who can benefit the
dictators practically in one way or another by facilitating access to
new science and technology.
And this is where the free countries lose: they are as gullible as
they are open-minded. Chinese dictators will stop at nothing when it
comes to enticing a unique scientist to come to work in China. They
will give him or her whatever their hearts desire, from money to
their own labs equipped with the latest technology.
It is quite acceptable to admit that Hitler was an illiterate,
arrogant nonentity, an idiot. But what is President Obama, a
basketball player turned “intellectual” because he went to an Ivy-
League college and is a certified “law professor” and a “community
As American president, he took an oath to protect the independence
and freedom of this country. He was sworn to be loyal to this
country, to take a bullet to save and defend the people of this
An American president representing his country abroad is expected to
uphold the interests of his country rather than his own concerns
about his re-election campaign. Instead, during his recent trip to
South Korea, Obama confided his worries about his re-election
campaign to Dimitry Medvedev before an open microphone, for the
entire world to hear and laugh at.
Was Obama there representing the United States or his own interests?
The scandalous event is being discussed in the Russian press.
American president needs help to get re-elected, eh? “I will pass
this on to Vladimir, [Putin]” said Dimitry. “After I am re-elected, I
will have the power to help you with your needs. [American latest
technology?]” Not a bad catch for clever Dimitry!
Things such as this are not out of character with Mr. Obama. Remember
his opening of American secret military bases to Chinese generals,
bases that previously were out of reach to an outsider? A sign of
goodwill and friendship? A sign of idiocy? Or outright high treason?
To all those Americans who intend to vote for Obama: Why stay in this
country and bother with elections? Why not move to China? There you
will have no worries about the burden of choosing a president — The
PRC will take care of that. (Copyright © 2012 East West Services,
