Isiah 11:6

President Obama gave the commencement speech at West Point the other day, and in a speech praising himself he told the cadets that thanks to him the world was a more peaceful place than it was when he took office, that al Qaeda has been decimated, the war in Iraq ended and the long war in Afghanistan coming to a close. Never mentioned was the Russian annexation of the Crimea, a territory belonging to another country, the Russian attempts to return the former Soviet Union’s territories to Russia, and the Chinese active military measures to dominate the entirety of the South China Sea, claiming territory belonging to the Philippines and South Korea. None of that is part of Obama’s world. Obama has constructed a world where lions and lambs lie down together, with the United States the lamb. The following is a transcript of the president’s speech to the West Point class of 2014:

And the wolf will dwell with the lamb, And the leopard will lie down with the young goat, And the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; And a little boy will lead them. Isiah 11:6. And I say to you that Isiah had it right.

Today the lamb dwells with the wolf
And you are now the lamb
And leopards lie down with young goats
And goats won’t give a damn
A little boy Isiah says
Will lead them all to peace
And I, the little boy he saw
Have caused all war to cease
So now the wolves, the lions, lambs
All have my peace to keep
Though lying there together little
Lambs won’t get much sleep
