Timing is Everything

In this week’s visit to Japan, President Obama denounced the nuclear attacks which the United States made on Hiroshima and on Nagasaki in order to make a final end to World War II, calling the attacks ‘evil.’ This should not be a surprise to any keen observers of our president’s ideology and actions regarding American military power in general and nuclear weapons in particular.

But, look at which American holiday comes up in a few days: Memorial Day. That, of course, is the day when we honor all American military members who have made the ultimate sacrifice in battle. Arguably, World War II was our biggest triumph and, inarguably, yielded our largest amount of sacrifices. And it is certain that the American body count--and that of the Japanese--would have been much greater had the US Military been required to invade Imperial Japan in order to get her to surrender.

This sort of...eh...unfortunate timing isn’t new for him. Recall that when the president reneged on the missile shield treaty with Poland (and the Czech Republic)—which had been signed by President Bush’s Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and Poland’s then-Foreign Affairs Minister Radoslaw Sikorski--he announced his intention to do so on September 17, 2009 which was the 70th anniversary of the invasion of Poland by Stalin’s USSR. Putin's Russia of 2009 had been threatening both Poland and the Czech Republic over the treaty and Vladimir Putin was well-pleased about the broken promise.
1939: USSR's Molotov and Third Reich's Ribbentrop--two wolves agree on which sheep (Poland) will be dinner.

I don’t know whether President Obama does this on purpose or not and some might say I’m being naïve in “hesitating” to make a stand on this. Thing is, I don’t believe in coincidences, not ultimately.

As usual, I think that when patterns happen and are observable, that it is God who is indicating something of which believers should take note.

What might that something be?

I will take one stand on that and it isn’t a new one: that President Obama is telegraphing the identity of his enemies to the world. But who will be able to see this? God knows.
