Weakness not only invites aggressiveness, but imprudence as well.

In an analysis of a column that all but states North Korea attacked South Korea when it sunk one of its ships, Contentions blogger Jillian Melchior had this to say:

It has been said often that Obama’s foreign policy emboldens international troublemakers. But to go a step further, one of the gravest consequences of Obama’s appeasement strategy has been to make it strategically imprudent for a country to justly act in defense of its citizens.

Indeed, it has. When our allies cannot come to depend upon the United States for even moral support in the actions it must take to defend its citizens, they are left in a state of paralysis while their own enemies gain ground. The evidence mounts that North Korea sank South Korea’s ship yet they are paralyzed to act because Obama only states “condolences” for losing a ship. One will not be surprised when North Korea starts trekking across the DMZ proper and start to reintroduce bullets into the war with South Korea.
