Former Defense Secretary Warned Us About Appearing Weak
Dems were not thinking of the big picture when they pushed Biden through the primaries. They were only thinking about removing Trump from office. Dems were so adamant about winning that even after it was more than clear that Biden was not mentally well, they pushed forward anyway weakening our country, and leaving us far more vulnerable to our enemies. Former Defense Secretary Rumsfield commented on the danger of appearing weak.
"Former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld once noted: “If history has taught anything, it’s that weakness is provocative. It entices people into doing things that they otherwise would not do.”
The recent meeting with Chinese “diplomats” on March 18 in Anchorage, Alaska, was the first tangible sign that something had gone wrong. At the top of the meeting, China’s representatives felt free to lecture the United States about our electoral, judicial, and social systems. In response, the State Department offered a cringe-inducing half-defense: “America’s approach will be undergirded by confidence in our dealing with Beijing — which we are doing from a position of strength — even as we have the humility to know that we are a country eternally striving to become a more perfect union.”
If you have to tell people you’re dealing from a position of strength, you’re probably not. If you’re defensive about your human rights record compared to the murderous Chinese Communist Party, you’re in real trouble."
"The world is a dangerous place full of people — Chinese communists, drug cartels, former KGB agents, strong-minded senators — who prey on weakness.
It is simply human nature to gravitate toward strength. One of our most daring and durable enemies in the last 25 years, Osama bin Laden, said: “When people see a strong horse and a weak horse, by nature they will prefer the strong horse.”
You can argue that Biden is not really running the show, which has become pretty apparent, but still, we are using a senile old man to represent our country, and it makes us look feeble. The last thing we need to do is appear weak in front of our enemies.
