Who made us judge of the world?

We have failed on everything we have tried to do both politically and militarily overseas. We have left countries worse off then they were before we caused the collapse of their governments. We are still in a war that has been forgotten by media and press, and Obama still want’s to commit to another long-term loser. We have no national interest in Syria other then to protect Israel. Who made us judge, jury and executioner for the world?

Will the military obey the will of the president or the Congress? Better yet, will they follow the will of the people? Will the federal judges decide what is right or wrong on party lines?

How many more of our young men and women have to die?
