A military that’s brought to its knees
The detention of US military personnel and the pictures of our own fighting force on their knees in front of Iranian captors is an image that sums up the Obama legacy quite well.
…a country, once strong and proud, now forced to its knees.
These sailors ended up in Iranian territorial waters leading to confrontation, capture and subsequent release. It certainly could have gone worse, and for that we’re thankful, but the circumstance plus the images paint a picture for the world to see of a country, once strong and proud, now forced to its knees. A Navy that could once boast of having 6,768 ships, down to 272. A history of US Presidents portraying strength as Commanders in Chief, now a President that grovels to dictators, monarchs, and emperors. A US President who’s arrogant to his own citizens while at the same time capitulating to oppressive rulers.
A country that once had the respect around the globe, now being dictated to by an Iranian government.

Based on available information, together with the indisputable fact that the vessel strayed into those waters by mistake, I see nothing wrong with them apologizing to the Iranians. Your position is one of an extremist, whoever you are.

We pointed out it was in Iranian waters. We didn’t say anything was wrong with apologizing. But having the image of American military on their knees at gunpoint by Iran is an appropriate picture of Obama’s legacy.
