Libya’s government has been toppled apparently. Khadafi is no more. This sounds like good news right? Well, not so fast my friend. The new regime will likely be just as awful. That’s what normally happens. We thought things would be better without the Czar in Russia. How did that turn out? We also thought things would be better in Cuba without Batista. Then we got Castro. The new leader will be feeling pretty good about himself. He won’t have the “fear of God” that Khadafi had from being put in his place by the US a few times. Syria has been given the sternly worded letter from Lord Barack Obama. That rattling sound you hear is them shaking in their boots. Yeah right? It’s actually laughing and giving the finger you hear. These people (and many others increasingly) see our president as a wimp.
2) Mexico and other drug cartels.
The drug trade has just about completely taken over Mexico. Entire towns and cities -- many like Juarez on the US border -- have given up. The police have quit, the business owners have closed up shop. The Mexican government has most of its people on the drug cartel’s payroll. The huge amounts of money, most of which is in US cash, sitting in the possession of the drug trade could go a long way toward paying off our national debt. Literally billions if not trillions in cash are sitting in these drug kingpins houses, not circulating. It is only a matter of time before an American politician uses this as a campaign promise. Americans everywhere will vote for the idea of going down there and getting “our cash”. It’s actually a good idea. But it will take the Marines, Army, Air Force and Navy to go down there and get it. These drug lords run the countries they are in. And those countries are heavily armed.
3) Al Qaeda/Iran/Iraq/Afghanistan.
So you think it’s all over just because Osama is dead? Get your head out of the sand. These people will be back. It’s just a matter of when. It will probably be when our fearless leader declares the war over and pulls out all of our troops. He’ll even be good enough to give them a date. So they’ll lay low until that day comes. After that it will be “Game On”. And just like that, ten years of fighting the war on terror will go down the drain. We’ll be in 2001 all over again.
