Then the LORD said to me, “You have made your way around this hill country long enough; now turn north. Give the people these orders: ‘You are about to pass through the territory of your relatives the descendants of Esau, who live in Seir. They will be afraid of you, but be very careful. Do not provoke them to war, for I will not give you any of their land, not even enough to put your foot on. I have given Esau the hill country of Seir as his own. You are to pay them in silver for the food you eat and the water you drink.’ ” The LORD your God has blessed you in all the work of your hands. He has watched over your journey through this vast wilderness. These forty years the LORD your God has been with you, and you have not lacked anything. So we went on past our relatives the descendants of Esau, who live in Seir. We turned from the Arabah road, which comes up from Elath and Ezion Geber, and traveled along the desert road of Moab. Then the LORD said to me, “Do not harass the Moabites or provoke them to war, for I will not give you any part of their land. I have given Ar to the descendants of Lot as a possession.” Deuteronomy 2:2-9 NIV
Amazing how people accuse others (their political opponents) of being hawkish about war, but then--their false outrage and pathetic ploy to show empathy in a situation pushes their ego into becoming all they said about another. More projection by the #WHidiot.
Only this time–American lives may be lost in the greater scheme of things–unless there was coordinated attempt by Putin and the idiot to use the opportunity to distract from the on-going investigation into the collusion on the part of Putin and trumpteam in the 2016 Election.
And where was Congress in this decision? Again, amazing how they, too–especially the GOP–don’t have a problem with protocol and policy not being followed–to hide their involvement in the 2016 Election fiasco.
Considering the fact that Syria has historically been monstrous to its own people, why involve the US in a military strike? What is the true motive? I believe it is simply a matter of a bully allowing his ego to reign in an attempt to flex muscle he doesn’t really have. Bravado is not muscle–it’s foolishness and the attempt to distract–from the investigation–futile.
But this won’t be the first time. Typically–over the last 20 years, it has been a Republican who involved the US in skirmishes and wars–apparently because their egos won’t allow them to stand down and not interfere until the UN endorses involvement. In all fairness, George Bush waited for Congressional approval to invade Iraq, but one still has to wonder, if anyone consulted God. This situation–in an attempt to eliminate evil has actually led to an on-going situation in which a victory is untenable–by anyone–considering the loss of life and financial expenditure. Are we going to pay for “rebuilding once again” simply because we have an idiot in the White House?
When will Congress find their balls and uphold their oath of office? They have been deliberately negligent in abdicating responsibility in doing their job which leads me and many others to believe–they are complicit in the collusion or at least cooperation in the 2016 election fiasco.
God’s Word is true and inerrant and won’t change the course of things. If He has not been consulted before we do things–the consequences are our own.
Once again–the #WHidiot has demonstrated how unstable and reactive he is. And the rest of us–must seek God and obey so any blood shed will not be on our hands. Of course, those who elected the idiot–will have to own their responsibility in whatever else plays out because of their gullibility in believing a pathological liar.
