The problems faced today are no more complex than at any time in history. Anytime you have more than one person you have different points of view. When you add to that not only multitudes of people with different ideas, cultures, and religions you have a complicated and complex world. When has this not been the situation? The world was complex for the Prussians, Russians, and Austrians when Napoleon decided he should be Emperor over all of Europe. The world was complex when the grandchildren of Queen Victoria decided to have a family fight in 1914.
The world was complex when Hitler decided all lands that he thought had Germans living in them should be under his control. Chamberlain also said this is a complex world and we must be patient. Churchill said we are being threatened by person who wants to control us and if we are patient he will control us. Churchill, who was a leader with clear understanding, became a leader in a complex world and refused to be patient.
The world was complex when the Soviet Union dominated Eastern Europe and much of Asia. They were expanding their influence in the Western Hemisphere as well. Jimmy Carter said it is a complex situation and we must be patient. Ronald Reagan said the Soviet Union intends to ultimately control both hemispheres and if we are patient they will. Reagan, who was a leader with clear understanding, became a leader in a complex world and refused to be patient.
Obama has no idea what is happening in the world. He is in a situation that is too great for him to comprehend and he surrounds himself with people who have less foresight than he. John Kerry; need I say more. Patience in ‘complex’ times always enables the aggressor. Obama is enabling the forces of evil. He either is not capable of recognizing evil, or he is part of the evil. Either situation is dangerous for the United States.
