Obama To Sit Out Berlin Wall Anniversary

When I was stationed in the Netherlands at Soesterberg AB during the late 80’s we used to practice and train constantly for what we thought was inevitable, the Warsaw Pact coming west. I for one was riveted by the scenes streaming into my Dutch home of the Berlin wall coming down. My then High School aged daughter made a class trip to Berlin and has a chunk of this monstrosity. I guess it’s too much to ask the President of the United States the world’s light of freedom to attend the ceremony. I’m sure its because he wants us to have a society like the paradise the East Germans had, what a joke and parody this administration is.
