Welcome to Solomon's Conservative Wisdom

Welcome to my Conservative Blog, Solomon's Conservative Wisdom. The name comes from my middle name and the historical & biblical figure King Solomon, now I make no claim to have Solomon's Wisdom, but I do have Common Sense. I welcome anyone to join in and comment about anything I may have written, posted or one of my Articles / Columns. This blog is dedicated to conservatism and freedom. I invite all conservatives to join in, I don’t mind non-conservatives joining in (after all the only way to change liberals and fence-sitters is to debate them and change their minds, some are just too hard headed to admit they are wrong) . All I expect is a respectful debate.

I have recently split my postings to a few other blogs I own, Solomon's Conservative Wisdom, Solomon's Conservative Wisdom II, and Solomon's Conservative Wisdom at Townhall.com, to spread out some of my postings.
So check them out and tell me what you think.

Please comment on my Articles and Columns, as well as any other post that is not just a link to a story.

I want to know what others think and have a debate. And make sure to check out my Articles and Columns if you haven't already.

So tell everyone you know.

"Battle is the most magnificent competition in which a human being can indulge. It brings out all that is best; it removes all that is base. All men are afraid in battle. The coward is the one who lets his fear overcome his sense of duty. Duty is the essence of manhood."

General George S. Patton

Obama to Limit Potential Uses of Nuclear Weapons

I want to tackle this subject from a different perspective then my usual, I want to tackle this from the perspective of the (a strong) leader of a nation, I'm not but have played a slew of Civilization Games, (Civ III is the best in my opinion) but I digress. Now, I am not the leader of any nation but pretending for the moment I was the leader of a Neo Rome I would never make a statement or policy like what Obama has, not to use nuclear weapons against most non-nuclear countries, no matter what they use against us. This is just asking for something to happen and as to keeping "all options" on the table for nations like North Korea and Iran, I have to be honest I really don't trust Obama and his policies in this area, North Korea and Iran are far more likely to pass the "Nuclear Football" to terrorists or another third party then do the job themselves, and I can just hear their excuse now, "We can not attack a sovereign nation for the "Actions" of terrorists with "loose" connections to (insert your favorite possible enemy nation)." Now, as someone who has played games like Civilization III where a computer opponent with no real personal religion or philosophy's is far more likely to attack you then in real war, I have to speak of personal experience in these games when you have a large military force with an equal might an opponent is far less likely to attack you, when you can demonstrate to an enemy that you can or could destroy them they will be far more likely to just play a war of words.

Now personally looking at history this also proves true, take for example what is known as the golden age of piracy, real pirates not the music and video pirates, it started out with the Privateers who would attack the Spanish treasure ships transporting the riches of the new world to Spain, these Privateers were legitimate pirates who were given what basically could be considered a piracy licence to attack the ships of that nation's enemies, with some restrictions, these Privateers would pay a portion of their booty to their sponsors. This is a good example of what happens when you have a superior military force to your potential enemies.

And to answer any questions of how you deal with pirates and terrorists, for the most part you should treat them as enemy combatants or like saboteurs, they have no rights under the Genia Convention, can be tried in a military court, and can be put to death if found guilty, also to be kind they get some appeals, how about three strikes, three appeals and its over, unless something comes up that would change the facts of your case you don't get any more.

If you are unwilling to show or display that you can destroy an enemy in seconds or a short period of time, you will open yourself up to any number of possible threats to you nation. When you are the leader of a nation great or small your interests should be your people, their God given rights, freedom and security. Balancing these can be hard, but it is doable.


P.S. I have been away for about week I have some backlog of subjects I want to cover, so I might do up to two or three posts a day if I get the chance.
