The liberal media, politicians and deep state bureaucrats were stunned when President Trump said what world leaders would not say:
“If the righteous many do not confront the wicked few, then evil will triumph,” he said. “When decent people and nations become bystanders in history, the evil forces only gain strength.”
North Korea, Iran and other rogue regimes were called out for their threats to humanity and to peace.
On North Korea, Trump said:
“The United States has great strength and patience, but if it is forced to defend itself or its allies, we have no choice but to destroy North Korea.”
How’s that for a clear message?
He reminded leaders that North Korea has:
- Starved to death millions of its people.
- Its reckless pursuit of nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles threatens the world.
- That “Rocket man” (Kim Jong-un) is on a suicide mission for him and his regime.
He called on the United Nations to take the lead and disarm North Korea.
And if it doesn’t quickly, the U.S. will act out of our self-interest. No more letting the UN and globalism prevail.
Iran was next to face Trump’s wrath. Trump pointed out that:
- The Iranian government needs to be confronted on its mission of mass murder, the destruction to Israel and death to America.
- Iran masks a corrupt dictatorship behind the false guise of democracy.
- It’s an economically depleted rogue state whose cheap exports are violence, bloodshed and chaos.
- Oil profits go to fund terrorists like Hezbollah.
“We cannot let a murderous regime continue these destabilizing activities while building missiles,” Trump said.
He warned that the U.S. may cancel the unfair Iran agreement if that country continues its pace of building a nuclear program.
“It’s one of the worst deals the U.S. has entered into. It’s an embarrassment.”
Trump’s concern for those who cannot defend themselves under brutal regimes, brought to light Psalms 82: 3-4:
“Give justice to the weak and the fatherless; maintain the right of the afflicted and the destitute. Rescue the weak and the needy; deliver them from the hand of the wicked.”
Other highlights from the politically incorrect Trump speech:
- Islamic Extremism that gives rise to terrorists must be eradicated.
- There should be no safe havens from which terrorists can strike.
- The scourge of our planet today is a small group of rogue regimes.
- Speaking of Venezuela, he said, socialism is a failed system that brings poverty and anguish to a country’s people. (See my story on Socialism and Venezuela by CLICKING HERE).
- Human Rights Council has members with terrible human rights records at home.
Trump ended his speech with a call to action.
“Let this be our mission. We will fight together, sacrifice together and stand together for peace, for justice, for freedom and family and for Almighty God who made us all.”
While Trump talked tough against North Korea and Iran, and rightfully so, the President was really on a mission of mercy.
He embodied the precepts of Proverbs 24: 11-12:
Rescue those who are being taken away to death; hold back those who are stumbling to the slaughter. If you say, “Behold, we did not know this,” does not he who weighs the heart perceive it? Does not he who keeps watch over your soul know it, and will he not repay man according to his work?
Hopefully, Trump’s call to action will be heeded by the UN, but history has proven otherwise.
The UN has proven itself to be anti-Israel and anti-Semitic, backing resolutions designed to punish Israel while pushing the Palestinians into statehood.
The U.S. pays $3 billion a year to the UN, much more than its fair share. Maybe it’s time to defund the UN until it drops its pro-Palestinian, anti-Israel policy.
