Once again, we’re back to this: if you wrote this stuff as fiction, no one would publish it. It’s just too far out.
It’s funny – in the last blog I lamented the lack of outrage at Muslim terrorists specifically -- Muslims, followers of Islam, are responsible for 99% of the terrorism around the world, a mad, insane killing spree that – so far in 2010 -- has murdered just under 1300 people.
(And yes, to those of you who emailed me, I view the loss of a mother in Pakistan, a child in Iraq, or a teenager in Russia, Iran or Sri Lanka with equal horror. Random slaying of innocent civilians is evil, regardless of where it occurs or what the nationality or religion of the victims. All life is precious.)
What happened then? With the ever-escalating number of victims of Muslim terror, worldwide, you’d think some strong condemnation would be coming out of the White House. But no, quite the opposite happened. The Community Organizer is now contending that Muslim terror does not exist.
An AP news bulletin advised that the White House is busy redrafting a new document to outline US national security strategy. In this newly revised statement, all references to “religious terms” such as "Islamic extremism" are being removed. Instead, the new and ever so politically correct document will “emphasize that the United States does not view Muslim nations through the lens of terror or counterterrorism” a White House official said.
Under President Bush the document read, "The struggle against militant Islamic radicalism is the great ideological conflict of the early years of the 21st century."
That’s gone. No more references to Muslim terror or Islamic extremism will be permitted. It doesn’t say what he intends to replace it with – ‘human terror’, maybe? As in ‘Radical Muslims don’t terrorize people. Humans terrorize people”?
And if you think that’s the worst thing the Community Organizer did yesterday, guess again. As you no doubt know, he then went on take his first steps toward fulfilling his campaign promise to dismantle the US’s arsenal of nuclear weapons by limiting the situations in which they can be used. This is a huge, major and utterly insane concession he’s making -- he’s conceding the battle before it even starts. He’s openly inviting an attack – and has already admitted that no matter what, the US will not respond with nuclear weapons.
The White House is proud of this. The Community Organizer, in his infamous Cairo speech, promised a "new beginning" in the relationship between the United States and the Muslim world. Other administrations, which based their relationship with Muslims on “fighting terror and winning wars” were wrong, they say.
So there’s your hope and change, folks. In terms of change, the old Reagan deterrent of “mutually assured destruction” that helped keep most terrorists at bay is now a thing of the past. It’s been replaced with a different kind of destruction – that of the US itself.
From now on, the Community Organizer’s weapon of choice will be limited to one thing only: hope.
The insanity of all this is beyond comment -- almost.
