The third and final Presidential debate, which focused on foreign policy, accentuated the differences between the way President Obama and his challenger, Mitt Romney, see the role of government.
Governor Romney advocates a policy of peace through strength and being aware of the serious threat of radical Islam to world peace. He expressed that “peace through strength “must be achieved through maintaining a strong military.”
President Obama when pressed about the failure of Arab Spring, the dangers of radical Islam, and his peculiar approach of downsizing the U.S. military in the face of growing world terrorism, did what he has often done when confronted with the aforementioned issues. He avoided giving direct answers to the questions.
The President justified the shrinking of the U.S. military, in spite of the growing thread of jihad, by saying the military now has “fewer ships and no longer relies upon horses, and bayonets”.
The President was being sarcastic, responding to the fact that he has, as Governor Romney pointed out, reduced the navy to its weakest point since 1917.
The reality is that the President has, in fact, not only weakened our military at a time when radical Islam continues to wage jihad against the free world, but has forged an alliance with the Muslim Brotherhood, which is the leading threat to world peace and stability.
