Times are changing. The drum of war is being sounded in all corners around the globe. From North Korea defiance, Chinese and Russian armament and rearmament, Iran’s emboldenment, Syria’s continued abuse against innocent women and children, sea pirates seeking to rob and disrupt maritime commercial routes, the sound of war is rising. A resounding response is needed. After years of appeasement against U.S. enemies, against the enemies of democracy around the world, a response is needed.
In the middle of the Cold War Reagan said, “There is no argument over the choice between peace and war, but there is only one guaranteed way you can have peace — and you can have it in the next second — surrender.”
And the response lies within. America can’t afford to remain aloof from all these conflicts and trends around the world. Its military can’t continue to be dismantled in the pursuit of other “goals.” It needs to get up and fight. Like this footage of America’s military strength, with the background of former president Reagan delivering a speech for the ages, the current president of the United States is enabling the U.S. Military to stand up to evil and restore hope around the globe.
“Winston Churchill said, “The destiny of man is not measured by material computations. When great forces are on the move in the world, we learn we’re spirits—not animals. There’s something going on in time and space, and beyond time and space, which, whether we like it or not, spells duty,” Reagan added to his historical speech.
In the video, the tribute song, Born to Rise by Redlight King is perfect.
“What ya know about sacrifice when the lights go out, it’s the price you pay when you’re digging down. The skin of your teeth and a blade in your back. What cha know about hope, what cha know about that,” the lyrics say.
Check out this tribute to the U.S. military:
“I go to war with the brothers I trust and there ain’t no stopping us. We are the ones who will brig the rain, we are the ones that will break the chain,” the song continues and it sure is perfect indeed.
The clips that are in the video along with the song itself make for a masterful tribute to the U.S. military and shows just exactly that they are a force to be reckoned with but one that the U.S. can’t live without. Thank you all for your service and for making this a great country.
