It is time to get over our inordinate fear of terrorism?
During the time of the worst President of the 20th Century, the sanctimonious fool lectured us that, “it was time for us to get over our inordinate fear of communism.”
Has the Obama regime hit its Jimmy Carter moment?
Today, the National Journal reported that a senior State Department official has announced, “The war on terror is over.”
“Now that we have killed most of al Qaida,” the source said, “now that people have come to see legitimate means of expression, people who once might have gone into al Qaida see an opportunity for a legitimate Islamism.”
The article itself describes the Obama administration’s new vision of foreign policy, which admits no enemies. Everyone, in this view, is a friend. Islamism, says the Obama administration, is just fine, so long as it does not openly support terrorism.
Obama has created the brave new Middle East – a Middle East that assumes that every human heart has the desire to vote, but not to be truly free; a Middle East that oppresses women and gays and minorities, but pretends at liberalism; a Middle East that despises America but hides that hate behind a façade of multiculturalism, even as it disposes of its internal dissenters.
In truth, Obama isn’t declaring an end to the war on terror – terrorism continues unabated each day in Egypt and the Palestinian territories and Iraq and Afghanistan and Sudan and Yemen and Syria and Lebanon and a dozen other hotspots around the globe. Obama is truly declaring an end to the war on Islamism. He has made his peace; he has surrendered. In doing so, he has condemned broad swaths of the world to darkness, and more immediately, he has condemned America to a defensive position in the world. Now there is no proactive America shaping the world to her own ends. Now there is only an atomistic world, a series of billiard balls, in which America waits to be struck before bouncing back.
Could someone please explain how this fool got into the Presidency? Oh wait, I remember, the Republicans nominated a bigger fool.
While I had a lot of disagreements with George Bush, he was at least willing to defend the United States. Bush, like Obama, would not identify our enemy as Islam.
Islam is the evil we are destined to face as the generation before us faced Nazism and Communism.
Unfortunately, America has no greatest generation to arise now. We have a society that is increasingly composed of takers not makers and we have leaders in Washington who no longer believe in the greatness of America. We have one of our two major parties that believes we are the enemy and we should do nothing to make America great or even defend ourselves against aggression.
This is only one of Obama’s Jimmy Carter moments.
At least Carter can rest easy that he is no longer the worst President in American history.
