Even Al Qaeda Isn't As Stupid And Clueless As The Political Left

  1. The BBC thinks that McCain has an ally in Al Qaeda:

    "Islamic terrorists want war. They want suffering - among others and their own people alike.

    They would surely surmise that McCain will give them what they want. Bin Laden himself intervened with what many thought was the effect of keeping President Bush in power in 2004 with that weird tape just before the poll.

    I think al-Qaeda would back McCain - that is not an argument for or against America backing him, but it seems to me that the vague assumption that the terrorists would back a lefty is lazy thinking..."

    Justin Webb, the author of this insane assertion is at least partly correct that Al Qaeda wants war and suffering. There is no doubt about that part of his statement. Anyone who has opened their eyes even briefly since 9/11 should be able to notice that reality (though most on the left still aren't able to grasp it).

    But it truly takes a "lazy" mind to imagine that Al Qaeda wants to lose that war. That is just a psychological projection on Webb's part. And, clearly he speaks for many of the lunatics of the left, who desire nothing more than that the U.S. and the West be defeated at the hands of the Islamic fanatics.

    Look, Al Qaeda "wants war" no matter who might be elected POTUS. They want to kill us no matter how nice we are to them; or how much 'dialog' Obama initiates with them. They are fanatical jihadists.

    But, even Al Qaeda isn't as stupid and clueless as the political left; who are so incredibly desperate to lose to these Islamic barbarians, that they would betray every value, assert any idiocy, and surrender to any terrorist--just so they could cling to their failed ideology for one more day.

    Ask yourself what kind of tortured and circuitous logic it takes to get to such a bizarre, psychotic conclusion....then consider what the left hopes to get out of the deal. And, make no mistake, the idiotic lefties are tripping all over each other trying to cut a deal with terrorist regimes, who unfortunately for all the rest of us, are quite a bit smarter and frankly, much better liars than either Obama or the Clintons. And that's really saying something for the latter to be true,

    The left is not serious about foreign policy; they are only serious about the acquisition of power. If they conclude that losing a war and collaborating with the enemy Vichy-style would help them obtain the power they desire, then you better believe that they would betray us all in a flash.

  2. A domestic terrorist attack in the runup to the election would pretty much guarantee that McCain would win. Remember how people responded after 9/11? The common feeling was relief that Al Gore was not president.

    For that reason I would expect al qaeda to lay low until after the election. If Obama or Clinton is elected, they will be free to resume their activities without much fear of interference.

    There is always the potential for miscalculation however. Al qaeda might stupidly believe that US voters could be cowed like the Spanish were and that a terror attack might be just the thing to send voters scurrying for a "peace" candidate.
  3. I expect more from you, even if your recent posts seem to be filled with more political divisiveness than usual. Yes, we all wanted to get Al-Quaeda, granted. But after nearly 7 years Al-quaeda is still there, and thousands of Americans have died in the stupid Iraq quaqmire.

    We did more to help al-quaeda over the last few years than anything we will ever do to help Iraq, IMO. Turning the world against us was not a great move in this time of global trade and semi congeniatlity. The old our way or the highway, right or wrong, is just not the America that I was proud to serve for 6 years.

  4. according to the neocons, al qaeda is more of a threat now more than ever. who had even heard of them before 2000? hmmmm... seems like the more we fight them and give up our liberties, the bigger they get. so... we should accelerate this M.O. ?

    Great Moment in Neocon History

  5. We can't change history. Going into Iraq was a monumental mistake. But we did and we are there now. It seems clear to me that just pulling out as quickly as possible, as Obama wants to do, would be irresponsible and unwise. If al qaeda is there, we might as well take the opportunity to kill as many of them as possible.

    Afghanistan is a growing mess, and Pakistan could soon develop into an even bigger problem. We have a president desperately engaging in legacy building by pissing away $30 billion in africa, instead of focusing on business. We have a congress that is more interested in sticking its finger in the president's eye than fighting terrorism.

    I don't like or trust McCain, but he is a credible, experienced leader who our enemies will think twice about challenging. Obama is weak and inexperienced and will be challenged immediately.
