0v0mit admin: "The war on terror is over." Is this kind of stupidity endemic throughout the government?

BlueMax372 2012/04/24 21:58:21

In the wake of the Arab Spring, the Obama administration is grappling with how to handle Islamists, radical adherents to Islam. Particularly, the issue has come to the fore in regards to Egypt, which, as Reuel Marc Gerecht notes, "is now certain" to elect "an Islamist" as its leaders the next time the Egyptian people go to the polls.

But some in the Obama administration are now seeing things differently.

"The war on terror is over," a senior official in the State Department official tells the National Journal. "Now that we have killed most of al Qaida, 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."

This new outlook has, in the words of the National Journal, come from a belief among administration officials that "It is no longer the case, in other words, that every Islamist is seen as a potential accessory to terrorists."

    The war on terror will never be over as long as there are countries willing to kill their own people to maintain control and there are fanatics calling for holy wars.

    How does one say bulls**t politely? The war on terror will Never be over until the Muslim world is reigned in again! Odimwit managed to turn it loose and he's too enamored of his success to know or understand what he has done!

    And while the World Trade Center, the US embassy in Kenya and the USS Cole were bombed President Clinton continued to enjoy America's vacation from history he had Reagan/Bush to thank for. If President Romney needs to take military action in regard to Iran, Syria, Egypt, China or North Korea he will have Obama to thank for the foreign policy messes he inherits.

    No, it's the damn Ron Paul & Gary Johnson lovers! They are gonna split the vote, which will take away from Romney! Romney's lead is not that big that he can survive this especially if 0blowhole takes the states with the largest number of electoral votes! Remember, the popular vote for the POTUS doesn't mean a damn thing! It's the ELECTORAL votes that elect the POTUS!

    I don't know if Ron Paul or Gary Johnson have quite the following that Ross Perot did in splitting the vote in 1992. Their followers are mostly last stand blowhards trying to inflate their numbers.

    Ross Perot was unquestionably a reaction to the widespread perception of George HW Bush being out of touch and a sellout to the liberal establishment. But this time the incumbent isn't a Bush.

    HLS gets the majority of its bad press because of its defective leadership coupled with the performance of the boobs that make up TSA. By itself, HLS was one of the best government reorganizational efforts ever effected.

    The way to deal with them is....in return, to act radically. If they are found to be guilty of plotting against us or attemptiing to induce others to terror in western civilizations, deport they, and their entire families to an islamic country of our choosing......sell off the assets and use those proceeds to fund our wounded warriros. Swiftly and concisely, cut them off at the knees, box them up and remove them.
    As for Arab Spring, they were far more intelligent than the Obama administration was. They knew to let us do the heavy lifting by toppling THEIR opposition with OUR assets, at which time, they rode in to town on our coattails, setting up shop and winding their tentacles and injecting their ilk in to contention for political positions which would benefit the Brotherhood. They have used Obama to help consolidate them in Libya and Egypt, and they're going to do it again in Syria. It's a matter of time. The only thing that has NOT happened, is that, Obama seems to have smartened up some little bit as I'm not seeing that he's green lit any form of support with Syria.
    Bottom line is that while Mubarak and Gadhafi were tyrants or loon's, they were a barrier for us against those like the Brotherhood and ignorant idiots rejoiced when the two were brought down. Suddenly,...

    Bottom line.....you can't do anything about those elected or coerced in to voting for the Brotherhood. We will only be able to deal with the problems presented once they begin to arise. Time will tell what those will be.

    The thing is, you can't make a "war on terror" anymore than you can make a "war on drugs". War is between people or countries.
