The cobra’s prey can escape the lethal bite with a quick retreat out of range.
The boxer can duck and raise a defense against a one-two punch.
A politician can seek the truth and prepare for war instead of hoping for peace.

Or are too preoccupied with your gadgets, idols, and celebrities?
Those who ignore reality are foolish.
Fools who neither know the enemy nor recognize the threat
Shortly will be dead fools.
America do you recognize the cobra?
America are you preparing for the cobra?
All is not as it looks!
