When you get right down to it, Obama’s lack of willingness to take responsibility for his job is appalling.
We are America. We don’t accept stuff we don’t need to. We do whatever it takes to keep ourselves safe- from a Normandy landing to Hiroshima, from the Marshall Plan to rebuild Europe and keep them – and us – safe to overthrowing violent dictators feeding their subjects to dogs or putting people into shredders.
But here is our Commander-in-Chief, our president yesterday:
“There is always going to be the potential for an individual or a small group of individuals, if they are willing to die, to kill other people. … That threat is there, and it’s important, I think, for the American people to understand that. And not to live in fear; it’s just a reality of today’s world that there are going to be threats out there.”
Nope – not buying it.
If there is a threat – and there is, it’s called “Radical Islam” – then the PRIMARY DUTY of our president is to ensure it does not endanger our lives, period.
If that means letting Saudi Arabia know that another attack on Americans WILL be met with nuclear detonations on Mecca, Medina and Riyadh, then it is the duty of our president to make them understand that – and then to follow-through if and when.
It is NOT the duty of OUR president to ensure the safety of citizens and subjects of nations funding terror against the civilized world. It IS the job of OUR president to KILL our enemies if and when they attack us, and to ensure they understand this ahead of time to deter them if at all possible.
This is NOT open to discussion. It’s the way the world works. Kill and American and you will die.
But – ask Americans to understand that they and their children may be killed and, “not to live in fear” of that?
… is insane and is NOT acceptable from the man whose PRIMARY responsibility is to ensure our safety… especially from a man who has banned the reference to our enemy from his office and his cabinet and officers: Radical Islam.
… He – and they – must be stopped.
If America is again attacked by adherents of this tribal, violent, barbaric, 7th-Century ideology that is NOT a “religion,” and if America’s president does not respond with ultimate force against the enablers of that attack…. things are likely to get very ugly very fast.
