Where you are held accountable for your convictions and record

Browsing Posts in terrorism

Sorry. I wanted to get this out earlier but the transcript wasn’t available. I watched it live and was very excited through the whole speech. Unfortunately it wasn’t the leader of MY country making me feel good, but that of ANOTHER country. This speech was needed to be said and heard. READ THE WHOLE THING SO THAT YOU UNDERSTAND ITS IMPORTANCE.

There were many Congress critters absent, although you could not tell because this was a PACKED HOUSE! Even Feinstein was there after she said she wouldn’t be. Pelosi was there, annoyingly and continuously turning around to talk to others. Who was very conspicuously absent was Plugs Biden. Well, his schedule says he is doing this. Not sure what it is but it is consistent with this administration: when things are in crisis mode, there is always time to f#^koff and be political. Nature of the beast.

When you read this transcript, you will see things like “the enemy of my enemy is my enemy” and “Israel can stand up for itself”. He is giving Obama a chance to do the right thing but he is stating that the U.S. will not keep Israel from doing what is necessary for its protection. Bravo BiBi, bravo.

As I await the speech to AIPAC from Netanyahu, I hear from members of Congress who will snub him when he gives his speech to Congress tomorrow. Most of the Obama administration “heads” will be conveniently out of town. They’ve had enough notice to redo their schedules to be present , which means this is really just a snub. Here is one article on the issue.

Now when Amb. Samantha Power spoke, she said many things. She got some applause but then raised her eyebrows each time, like she had just hit a home run. I, personally, thought it a disgusting display, as my interpretation was that of “politics being played”. To strengthen that belief, she stated that Obama reiterated that Iran WILL NOT GET A NUCLEAR WEAPON. PERIOD. What does “will not get” mean? Won’t be able to buy one? Won’t be able to make one? Won’t be able to steal one? All ambiguous and subjective from my point of view. Above all, we have another “period” statement. That tells me a lie is being perpetrated and something underhanded is moving forward; based, of course, on past behavior from this administration.

When Netanyahu spoke, he only spoke as to why he would speak to Congress tomorrow. He believes that there is a strong relationship with the U.S. and Obama. He only wants to let our governing body know how Much Israel is in danger. But there are ads from Jstreet, supposedly objective and conservative Jews, who say this is a bad idea for both Israel and the U.S. I did some research into Jstreet. This article should sum it up pretty well. All in all, there seems to be great opposition towards this visit and speech from Netanyahu. I won’t ask why because I already know. Unfortunately, Israel, on this subject, also has our best interests in hand because our administration is willing to weaken the world and put everyone in jeopardy by allowing a nuclear terrorist state. People who have openly declared destruction of their perceived enemies, of which we are one.

And then you have John Kerry, chief lackey for all affairs foreign, trying to assemble some type of coherent speak on the issue. When he stated that “Israel is safer” because of the interim agreement with Iran. After all these Obama years of indoctrination, this should be easily believed by the masses, no? Trying to remember what that interim agreement was. Something like we will lift sanctions and Iran will stop buying and using centrifuges while allowing inspectors to see every aspect of their nuclear program. How is that working out?

You might think that with the recent ISLAMIC terror attack on the people of France, the world would be more outraged by these people and want to reign in the “nice talk” and “nice deeds” towards them. Charlie Hebdo magazine produced its most recent copy with Mohammed on the front and the caption “All Is Forgiven”. Who is forgiving who? Seems a pretty dumb statement however you twist it around. But it isn’t as dumb as what Obama did last night. He released 5 MORE GITMO ISLAMIC TERRORISTS, bringing the total to 20 since December 8th. He did this in light of what just happened in France. Why?
It would appear that Obama believes these detainees to be combatants from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and therefor need to be released since those wars are declared “over”. I thought these detainees were ISLAMIC TERRORISTS and I don’t know that their war was declared over. Matter of fact, I don’t know that Obama has ever admitted that there is a war on terror. Just another nail for his coffin. Problem being, no one seems to care enough to DO anything about it.

On another stupid note, it appears that Duke University wants to continue with its “political correctness” stance, as well its anti-Christian stance, by allowing a Friday Muslim call to prayer. Hum. What could possibly be wrong with this picture?

Woes In NYC

8 comments

Seems that a great humanitarian doctor has caused just a little stir in NYC. A “doctor without borders” ( sounds like a tree huger without common sense) has come back after a month of aiding Ebola victims in West Africa. And he self monitored right up to the point of 103 degree temperature. Too bad he didn’t self quarantine instead. Yet to see how this will turn out and what fellow NYers REALLY feel about him. Oh, and the Dem parrot governor and the Dem parrot mayor say there is nothing to worry about and that everything is under control. Right!

Under control would be this Islamic psycho from California (another liberal state transplant) who decides to attack police with a hatchet. Recent convert to Islam? Of course, but we won’t mention that. This rides on the heels of another whacko Islam convert in Canada who tried to kill members of their parliament. I don’t know how much Canadians like their members of Parliament but I wish these lefty or Islamic terrorists would do us a favor and at least take out some of the US parliament members. Two birds with one stone as it were. We do these guys want to do harm to civilians who have no control over affairs that bring anger to terrorists? I don’t get it.

Well, our House of Representatives have voted to arm the “lite” jihadists (that we are calling “moderates”) in Syria to the tune of billions of dollars (that we do not have by the way). The Senate likewise passing this madness is pretty much fait accompli. Oh, to be a weapons contractors this month! (Or even a private military contractor)

So after Asaad is gone and the Islamic State group withdraws (note, NOT defeated), the war hawks (read: McCain and Graham) will come back and demand that we “secure the victory” by paying for a massive rebuilding project and oversee the installation of a democracy. That will cost another trillion dollars for so! Oh, and meanwhile the Islamic extremists (armed with our weapons) will continue guerrilla tactics, suicide bombings and such against us during the new occupation. No one is even debating ANY of that. And the biggest irony will be that Obama will have led us into this disaster.

The Islamic extremists have baiting us into spending ourselves into oblivion (to what end?) and are doing it again. Will we have a nation to leave to our children following all of this madness. But at least our ruling elite will be taken care of right? They have been leading a war on the rest of us for the past 20 years or so.

I can only hope that by 2016, perhaps neo-cons will be back out of favor again. But then again, are we – as the NY Times mentioned – in the “great unraveling”? The elites are leading us into decline and everyone is clapping for the freak parade.

…and by “it” I mean Iraq.

I am not saying that we need to “fix” it, but seeing as how our decision to remove Saddam Hussein and attempt to “install” a democracy has unintentionally turned that that nation into (in the words of Senator Rand Paul) a “jihadist wonderland” we have some obligation to help the Christians, Yazidis and other ethnic minorities that are being threatened with genocide by the forces of the group calling itself the “Islamic State” (i.e., ISIS/ISIL). I am saying this as a very firm non-interventionist that is often appalled by the hawkish rhetoric that comes from John McCain, Lindsey Graham and the rest of the “invade the world” caucus.

Let me clarify by saying that I fully recognize that Saddam Hussein was indeed a very bad guy (as was Qadhafi in Libya) but he at least kept the Jihadist hordes from murdering Christians. However, thanks to Neo-con arrogance, we removed the iron boot of Saddam from the necks of the jihadists and now Christians, Yazidis and any even other Muslims who disagree with their version of Islam are being murdered. Centuries old churches have been burned to the ground. Historic Christian lands have been abandoned. Thousands have been displaced. AND the jihadists are doing all of this with weapons that WE provided! I shudder when I think about it.

That said, we are where we are and we have to help those people. This video below of a Yazidi member of the Iraq Parliament begging for help against the Islamist hordes that are massacring her people broke my heart:

Watch Mark Arabo (an Arab Christian) speak about the crimes of ISIS against Christians in Mosul:

YES! He said that they are beheading CHILDREN!

The question is what to do?

In my humble estimation:

- Support a free and independent Kurdistan! Netanyahu already seems the wisdom of this. Cut the Maliki gov’t out and establish direct ties with the Kurds instead of going through the central govt in Baghdad. Allow U.S. companies to buy oil from the Kurds directly on the open market. Train and arm the Kurdish forces to protect themselves from the Islamic State. We can support their boots on the ground with air support in the effort to destroy ISIS.

- Covertly work toward dismemberment of Syria and Iraq into 6 or 7 smaller states. An Arab Christian state (similar to Israel) should be amongst those nations carved out to which the assorted persecuted Christians of other Arab countries can relocate. (I know this was tried in Lebanon once, but this time it has to be a stronger effort)

The Sunnis and Shia would have the benefit of ethnically purer states where they wouldn’t be victims of each others’ animosity. The smaller those nations the better. While we are at it, we should encourage the partitioning of Libya as well. Our long term goal should be the formation of as many smaller and gelded mini-states as possible.

Sadly that isn’t going to happen (at least not by our design) and we will likely continue with these asinine half measures that promote nation building and “installation” of democracy. Instead Christians will continue to flee the Middle East while getting raped, robbed and killed while Western governments simply watch. We will continue to inexplicably (and against our interests) continue to promote a “united Iraq” and a “united Syria” when fate has handed us an opportunity to simultaneously improve our position security-wise AND advance a more workable and peaceful Middle East for the foreseeable future.

That didn’t take long, did it? And Obama delivered as promised, didn’t he? And there is something happening with this administration that needs another immediate distraction, isn’t there. Here is the story.

Now here is the story where the Libyan government didn’t have prior knowledge of America’s intent and wants their suspect back. They want to try him under Libyan law but haven’t been able to capture him because the situation was too volatile. Hmm. The first story talks about a general in their army trying to get this guy. Any reporter wanting a story with the suspect didn’t seem to have any problems finding him. And now he will be tried in civilian court. We do we continue to play this game? Extract what little information there is; put a bullet in his brain and tell the politicians he jumped off the ship at sea and drowned. Better yet, capture him, interrogate him immediately at his home, kill him and leave. I don’t know if we even get any credible intel from these guys anymore.we need to stop putting on a show and just take care of business. Now we’ll hold him in jail somewhere and await trial 4 years down the road. And after he has his day in court, maybe we can go look for another Benghazi suspect.
