Tears of the Sun is a B-level movie (ok, maybe C…). But in its essence, the message of the movie is that a little air power and few brave men (Special Forces) can make a big difference.

The last screenshot of the movie repeats the famous saying of Edmond Burke: “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” President Obama should see this movie every morning with his breakfast.

The world is on fire—the fires of evil. Thousands of innocents are dying. Evildoers all over the world are getting emboldened. Shades of 1930s are all over us.

Churchill once said that you can always trust the Americans to do the right thing…after they tried everything else. I am afraid as long as Obama is the president, that truism may have to wait.

Tears will continue to pour—tears of men, women, and children.
