bin Laden is laughing because America's political and media elites are doing his
job for him. The Washington Post just gave bin Laden all the intelligence he needs
to effectively counter any remaining efforts to combat Islamic terrorism.
Of course, the media and the Obama administration don't identify it as such. Islam
has been removed from official documents so as not to offend Muslims adherents of
"the religion of peace." Instead, the war on terror has been dubbed an "overseas
contingency operation." Hey, that even makes me laugh.
Ignoring reality, history and common sense, Obama and friends have decided that
world peace is a possibility, if we can just convince those Islamic jihadists that
we Americans are sensitive guys with good intentions. Feelings have replaced military
might as the foundation of the war on terror. Oops, I meant the "overseas contingency
In Afghanistan, Taliban guerrillas are outright ignoring America's moral posturing
and Obama's sensitive outreach. They just
staged a series of raids
in western Afghanistan Sunday, blowing up the gate
of a jail and freeing 23 insurgent prisoners. I bet that really hurt Obama's feelings.
Those jihadists must not have gotten the word that there is no more war on terror.
Another plank in our "overseas contingency plan" is a push to build the self esteem
of terrorists. If only we can convince these murderers that they have worth, well,
they'll lay down their arms and join Obama in a rousing chorus of kumbaya. Once
they're done laughing.
NASA Administrator Charles Bolden said last month NASA's new priority is "to
reach out to the Muslim world
and engage much more with dominantly Muslim
nations to help them feel good about their historic contribution to science, math
Here's a newsflash. Arabs haven't contributed anything of worth to the field of
science since the seventh century. In fact, many devout Muslims view science and
reason as diametrically at odds with their faith.
And in case you missed it, the self-esteem movement practiced for the last couple
decades in America has bred two generations of idiots who think the world owes them
a living. But Obama apparently believes that we can win the "overseas contingency
plan" by bestowing self-esteem on our sworn enemies.
As Islamists breed generations of child warriors, versed in hatred, jihad and the
killing of infidels, Americans raise their boys to be sensitive metrosexuals. As
terrorists successfully recruit in our prisons, our officials are busy implementing
bingo and "life-style" classes
for the terrorists confined to Club Gitmo.
Now that our enemy has a roadmap, thank-you, Washington Post, to the locations of
the main American infidels, all that remains is safe conduct to the target site.
Not to worry, Obama and friends are busy making it easy for them. After tapping a supporter
of "sanctuary cities" as immigration
chief, Obama further enabled terrorists by deciding
to sue Arizona for daring to enforce the law against illegal immigrants. Illegal
immigrants that include among their ranks un-politically correct killing machines,
formerly known as Islamic terrorists.
Our current administration continues to believe that terrorists can be swayed by
the word soup and mushy sentiments emanating from D.C. - completely ignoring the
fact that Islamists, throughout history, view kindness, appeasement or "reaching
out" as a sign of weakness.
Winston Churchill understood the true nature of Islam. "Mohammedanism is a militant
and proselytizing faith. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world." America,
led by Obama, is ignoring the reality of Islamic terrorism, replacing it with an
unrealistic version of how it should be. If only the world were a perfect
Writer Andrew McCarthy wrote in National Review, "In the U.S., political correctness
has stifled inquiry into Muslim doctrine, we've conjured up a trendy, modern Islam:
one fit for seamless assimilation into Western society." This wishful thinking
has now become official policy.
Official American policy and a traitorous media have given bin Laden and friends
free rein to continue and accelerate the war on terror. Inquiring minds are starting
to ask "Just whose side are they on?"
