Remember when we used to say we would not EVER negotiate with terrorists? Well, under the Obama Administration, that is completely out the window. Completely. First we had then-Sec. Clinton meeting with the Taliban to help them set up an office in Qatar, and now – NOW – Obama has announced that the United States will be meeting with them with NO PRE-CONDITIONS.
Seriously. No pre-conditions for meeting with a bunch of woman/girl hating, USA-hating terrorists. It is bad enough that we are meeting with them at ALL, but to do so after dropping the condition that the Taliban reject Al Qaeda is OBSCENE.
Allow me to remind you of what the Taliban did just last year. I wrote about it in my post, “Here’s The Problem With ‘Spiking The Football’”:
Anyway, after Obama’s Big Speech claiming, “we can see the light of a new day on the horizon,” guess what happened? The Taliban happened, that’s what:
The Taliban struck back less than two hours after President Barack Obama left Afghanistan on Wednesday, targeting a foreigners’ housing compound with a suicide car bomb and militants disguised as women in an assault that killed at least seven people.
It was the second major assault in Kabul in less than three weeks and highlighted the Taliban’s continued ability to strike in the heavily guarded capital even when security had been tightened for Obama’s visit and Wednesday’s anniversary of the killing of al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden in neighboring Pakistan.
“We broke the Taliban’s momentum. We’ve built strong Afghan security forces. We devastated al-Qaida’s leadership, taking out over 20 of their top 30 leaders,” he said. [snip]
Well, that WOULD be nice, to break the Taliban’s “momentum.” I would love nothing more. Though it kind of begs the question why we are helping them get an office in Qatar, if we are trying to “break their momentum”?? I know, I know – why inject facts into Obama’s reverie? Ahem.
There is a good reason for my asking, though, considering this attack two hours later after Obama spoke. And here is the explanation for it:
[snip] Taliban spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid claimed responsibility for the attack.
“This was a message to Obama that those are not real Afghans that are signing documents about this country,” Mujahid said. “The real Afghan nation are those people that are not letting foreign invaders stay in this country or disrespect the dignity of our country.”[snip] (Click here to read the rest.)
Perhaps it is just this kind of terrible attack that is leading some people to query: Is this Obama’s “Mission Accomplished” moment?
And now we will sit down, hat in hand, coming to the table, kowtowing to a bunch of TERRORISTS. This is an affront to this country on SO many levels.
Meanwhile, speaking of Al Qaeda, we are now, under Nobel Peace-Prize-Winning Obama, stepping into the fray in Syria. I am all for humanitarian aid to the people there, but I adamantly oppose ARMING THE REBELS, especially since so many of them are devoted to AL QAEDA. Why in the HELL is this country giving our tax dollars to TERRORISTS??? Please answer that for me, because I just don’t get it. I just don’t. We know damn well AL Qaeda is alive and well in Syria, and Obama wants to help them out? Sorry, but WTF???
“If towns remain divided,” said the U.S. President, “if Catholics have their schools and buildings and Protestants have theirs, if we can’t see ourselves in one another and fear or resentment are allowed to harden—that too encourages division and discourages cooperation.”
Obama, who arrived in Northern Ireland this morning to attend the two-day G-8 Summit at the Lough Erne resort in Enneskillen, made the disproved claim on Monday, speaking before an audience which included many Catholics.[...] Click here to read the rest.)
Can you believe this crap?? The man who has announced he will meet with the TALIBAN, and will arm AL QAEDA, is lecturing NORTHERN IRELAND on Catholic education! One commenter, GrouchoNotKarl, said it all:
Wow. So maybe next he can go to Egypt and tell his Muslim Brotherhood buddies that burning the churches and persecuting/killing the Coptic Christians in that country is REALLY causing hurtful divisions and they really need to end Islamic education in an effort to heal the divide.
Uh, yeah. Not holding my breath for that one, but good point by GrouchoNotKarl. Coptic Christians are being DECIMATED by the Muslim Brotherhood, the people to whom our current SOB Kerry gave $1.3 BILLION, against the will of Congress, and to whom we just gave a bunch (a gaggle? A pack? A Gang?) of F-16 WARPLANES.
What in the HELL is it going to take to wake people up in this country to what Obama is doing in our name, and with our money? WHAT?? Because this seems like way more than enough.
There is person who has woken up, and has spoken very eloquently about his choice. That would be State Senator of LA, Elbert Guillory:
Wow – what an incredible statement. What a critical decision by Sen. Guillory. More people are going to have to come to this conclusion – not necessarily to switch parties – but to OPEN THEIR EYES to what is happening in this country under this Administration. To recap: we are meeting with TERRORISTS with NO pre-conditions. We are arming Al Qaeda in Syria. How much further down the hole will this country go before people are willing to stand up and say, No More?!
It is time, it is PAST time, to put a stop to these egregious actions by our Administration. We. Do. Not. Negotiate. With. Terrorists.
What do you think?
