President Macron; That’s No Way To Make Friends

  This past weekend we in America recognized a special day for our nation, that of honoring those heroes in past wars and conflicts, Veterans Day. But this year, that recognition was tarnished somewhat by the statements from the leader of one of those nations who benefited greatly from American sacrifice in blood and treasure.
President Macron of France has suggested that Europe build its own military to
protect themselves of 'threats' from Russia, China and, yes, the United States.   


Think of what Macron said for a moment. Let it sink into your mind deeply if
your family had a loved one who fought in either WWI or WWII. And, coincidentally,
as we all know, both wars occurred in and around France. For much of the first half
of the 20th century, it seemed America was involved with trying to protect and save
France from the vicious forces of Germany and their pals like Russia and others.
Each time that America was instrumental in the defeat of Germany, one would think
that France would be forever and ever grateful that their children would be raised in
a French culture and not that of a German. No disrespect intended to Germany.
  But, one has to ask themselves has France actually felt grateful for America's
military might coming to their rescue, or, have they been feeling resentful toward
America for the fact that they have been unable to prove themselves as a formidable
military opponent against foreign adversaries, requiring major assistance from the
U.S.? No doubt France was greatly humiliated when made to surrender to Germany
in WWII in the same railroad car that Germany was made to surrender in WWI.
America has not deserved this French resentment that has been prevailing for
several decades now. Are there other factors that would have caused the French
President to believe that Europe is in need to protecting themselves from the U.S.?


  It is of common knowledge that there is a fermenting movement that the leaders of
many nations in Europe are of a common belief that some sort of new world
order(NWO)is necessary, " is primarily associated with the ideological notion of
global governance only in the sense of new collective efforts to identify, understand,
or address worldwide problems that go beyond the capacity of individual nation-
states to solve." These globalists have decided that, specifically, a nation such as
America requires to be controlled by some sort of world central government in order
to re-establish some sort of balance of power. And, several American presidents have
said nothing to counter this thought, in fact, one, George H.W. Bush, has mentioned
it in rather positive tones. Many European nations seemed to have thought that the
U.S. has been receptive of the NWO theory and that America was well on its way to
abiding by globalist methods and manners much in the same way much of Europe
has in their open-border policies of the European Union. Ahh, but one, President
Trump, has had no such beliefs in those NWO ideas, and he will not hesitate to say


  President Trump's 'Make America Great Again' populace movement seems to not be
making fans among the many leaders of the European Union. In fact, his
proclaiming himself as a nationalist recently has pretty well etched his non-globalist
stance in stone. His withdrawing the U.S. from the craziness of the Iran nuclear deal
and the equally insane Paris Climate 'Treaty' has substantiated his "America First"
agenda much to the dismay of many European nations. And why, well, apparently,
with America's economic and military might on the rise, nations are no longer being
able to use the U.S. as their personal ATM in the form of trade imbalances or paying
lower than required NATO expenses. One major side effect is those member nations
in NATO will no longer be able to ignore their own defense/NATO budgets by using
the military power of America as their common shield against potential adversaries.
These nations were saving quite a bit on their budgets at the expense of America
who is spending quite an amount on her defense budget as well as NATO
  Ok, so, look it. What is all this about? With the America First path that President
Trump has America walking, it is understandable how various leaders in the
European Union would be upset. However, the time has come and gone for those
nations to take more responsibility in their security and economic welfare. After all,
wasn't that what the EU is all about, strength in numbers and their working together
for a unified Europe? America should not have any bearing as to how that works.
And if leaders like President Macron is resentful how the U.S. is not warming up to
the globalist concepts of the NWO, well, tough. But it is understandable why they
would feel this way.


   Having noted this, let's get back to President Macron and his suggested European
military, and the reason he believes it should be created. He feels Europe should
protect themselves from among others, the U.S. This has to be the biggest insult ever
made against America's veterans and their families. Me personally, my father was in
the famed 82nd airborne, dropped behind enemy lines in the Normandy invasion-D
Day. They were dropped like sticks in the wind, hoping that most of them would be
able to re-gather for a respectable fighting unit...well, most of them did. My dad was
captured, but in short time, he and others were rescued, but not before having the
shit beat out of them by interrogation techniques that would make water boarding
look like a birthday party. Later, in heavy combat, my dad was wounded seriously,
losing an eye and several feet of his intestines, escaping death by mere
centimeters...all this before the age of 20. I, like so many others with fathers who
suffered in this manner, are so lucky to be here. So, to dear little President Macron,
after one more time having America rescue your country from utter despair and
extinction, for you to be thinking that you and your fellow Eurotrash partners need
protection against America, if the day ever comes again that the people of France
come crawling to America's door step, begging for help against some deathly threat,
I hope whoever it is leading our nation that fateful day will remember what the
French president said on Veterans Day observance 2018, and will turn away saying,
"Sorry, Francois, we in America are just going to sit this one out, adios..!!"
