Why C++? Why not Objective C?

Also, C++ is intended to be all "type safe" and crap like that,
trying to be all pristine and nice and well-defined and all set
up to protect everyone from themselves, and what language do they
choose as a stable foundation for this language? C! The biggest
free-for-all "I'll just pass a pointer to your mother around and
fake everybody out" language on the planet. It's like giving an
AK-47 to a monk, shooting him full of crack and letting him loose
in a mall and expecting him to balance your checking account "when
he has the time."
