The Mea Culpa That’s Destroying the World

Right out of the gate, Obama decided it was necessary to go and make his world apology tour, telling countries how the United States had been wrong about many things including the war in Iraq. He also mentioned how we were insensitive concerning global poverty as well as having a lack of tolerance for other religions. He even went as far as to say that we were an all inclusive nation now – not a Christian nation. He bowed to a few world leaders and kissed a few……[fill in the blanks].

One would have thought then, after all the mae culpa  that the entire globe would have been embracing us and we would all been at peace, right? Apparently not.

In the period that Obama has been in office, which is two weeks shy of a year, there have been more terrorist attempts on the US than any other time in US history. Globally there have been more than 1000 incidents since Obama took office.

The one common thread that this rise in Islamic terrorism has in common—unless, of course, you’re a part of the hardcore, pro-Obama cheerleaders in the mainstream, liberal media, or just have been banished to living under a rock for the last little while—is the inauguration of Barack Obama as POTUS in 2009. That is to say that after his swearing in at the beginning of 2009, the number of Islamic terrorism incidents just skyrocketed domestically and internationally. Because of the aggressiveness, excessiveness and methodical nature of the increase, these incidents cannot be simply dismissed as coincidence or a random occurrence without a traceable cause as the liberals and Dems want…no!

According to Obama, the apology tour was to make amends, but to the Islamic world, just like the bow to the Saudi Prince, he displayed an attitude of servitude, of weakness. And this emboldened the enemy!

What also didn’t help was deciding to rename the word terror to “man made castrophes” which was nothing short of crawling on the ground with his face to the earth before radical Islam. The enemy now had the enemy where they wanted him….defeated!

It’s no wonder that terrorism went on a dramatic increase internationally as well as domestically:


The number of terrorist acts in 2009 spikes by almost 50% over 2008 levels to nearly 1000, up from 671. This includes a rushing spike of 220 terrorist attacks in Pakistan alone for the first half of 2009, up from merely 81 in the first half of 2008. Similarly, Somalia saw its terror incidents ferociously climb to 165 in the first half of 2009 from merely 51 in the first half of 2008. Additionally, Afghanistan’s terror attacks on civilians are on track to increase by up to 20% in 2009 over 2008’s levels.


The number of terrorist incidents in 2009 rose to 12 after a yearly average of just under three per year for all the years under Bush after 911. These incidents include the June attack by Abdulhakim Muhammad at a military recruitment center in Arkansas, murdering one soldier; the Fort Hood terrorism incident by Nidal Hasan, where he murdered 13 in a case of spree-shooting, Islamic terrorism; the plot to bomb targets in NYC by Najibullah Zazi; and the latest one with Abdulmutallab trying to blow up the Detroit-bound plane on Christmas

Barack Obama’s mea culpa did just the opposite of what he intended. It’s no wonder since he’s been very ignorant on Arabic protocol (anyone with common sense knows a world leader doesn’t bow to another world leader). His ignorance shattered the image of American superiority in the world and at the same time elevated to the world stage America’s new found weaknesses.

Until Obama starts showing a backbone internationally we will continue to see the rise of terrorism here as well as abroad. But until we treat terrorism as an international entity instead of a Chicago street crimes, this will only continue to esculate.

Obama has to undo the damage that HE created. He needs to show some backbone when it comes to countries like Iran and North Korea. He needs to start rattling some sabers instead of having some deluded concept that we can sit down with terrorists and smoke some proverbial peace pipe.

With all that’s been happening this past year, I seriously think Obama is destroying this nation, but I don’t know if it’s on purpose or not — I hope the latter. Either way, he still has a chance to change the global scene, if he truly loves this country.
