The way Barack Hussein Obama and Hillary Rodham Clinton frame the narrative, we cannot dare go back to the terrible days before Obama when the world was aflame with terrorism. Barack Obama has succeeded magnificently in staunching terrorism and dragging the world from the precipice of destruction from Bush. These fools will tell us that if we try to in any way, shape or form blame Islam for terrorist violence, or if we even have a Gitmo to keep terrorists prisoner and interrogate them, that we are to blame for the terrorist crisis because we inflamed the radicals and gave them a recruiting tool.
But let’s take a moment to examine their claims and see how utterly fallacious they truly are:
Today the word “bloodbath” is a properly descriptive term for Iraq, the nation Bush delivered from first Saddam Hussein and then al Qaeda in Iraq. We go back to the past and we see what the world Bush handed to Obama was like even according to Obama himself and his Vice President Joe Biden: Obama boasted in February 2009, “This strategy is grounded in a clear and achievable goal shared by the Iraqi people and the American people: an Iraq that is sovereign, stable, and self-reliant.” And Joe Biden was even more clear in his boasting about the “victory” we had won in Iraq: “I am very optimistic about — about Iraq. I mean, this could be one of the great achievements of this administration.
What was the root cause of all that “optimism”:
“By the end of 2008 and in the beginning of 2009, President Bush’s surge strategy, led by General Petraeus and General Odierno, now the Chief of Staff of the Army, defeated the al-Qaeda in Iraq. I saw the transmissions because I was advising Petraeus on the ground in Iraq. They showed me the transmissions from al-Qaeda that they were intercepting. They said: “We are defeated, don’t send any more foreign fighters.” So we knew how to deal with this enemy in that category.” — General Jack Keane, one of the architects of the successful surge strategy that caused the defeat of al Qaeda in Iraq
But something happened that turned victory into defeat and led to the bloodbath rather than the optimistic “great achievement” of a “sovereign, stable, and self-reliant Iraq.” And that something was the incredibly foolish and frankly evil policies of one Barack Hussein Obama:
US-IRAQ: Generals Seek to Reverse Obama Withdrawal Decision
By Gareth Porter
WASHINGTON, Feb 2 2009 (IPS) – CENTCOM commander Gen. David Petraeus, supported by Defence Secretary Robert Gates, tried to convince President Barack Obama that he had to back down from his campaign pledge to withdraw all U.S. combat troops from Iraq within 16 months at an Oval Office meeting Jan. 21.
But Obama informed Gates, Petraeus and Joint Chiefs Chairman Adm. Mike Mullen that he wasn’t convinced and that he wanted Gates and the military leaders to come back quickly with a detailed 16-month plan, according to two sources who have talked with participants in the meeting.
Obama’s decision to override Petraeus’s recommendation has not ended the conflict between the president and senior military officers over troop withdrawal, however. There are indications that Petraeus and his allies in the military and the Pentagon, including Gen. Ray Odierno, now the top commander in Iraq, have already begun to try to pressure Obama to change his withdrawal policy.
A network of senior military officers is also reported to be preparing to support Petraeus and Odierno by mobilising public opinion against Obama’s decision.
Petraeus was visibly unhappy when he left the Oval Office, according to one of the sources. A White House staffer present at the meeting was quoted by the source as saying, “Petraeus made the mistake of thinking he was still dealing with George Bush instead of with Barack Obama.”
Petraeus, Gates and Odierno had hoped to sell Obama on a plan that they formulated in the final months of the Bush administration that aimed at getting around a key provision of the U.S.-Iraqi withdrawal agreement signed envisioned re-categorising large numbers of combat troops as support troops. That subterfuge was by the United States last November while ostensibly allowing Obama to deliver on his campaign promise.
Gates and Mullen had discussed the relabeling scheme with Obama as part of the Petraeus-Odierno plan for withdrawal they had presented to him in mid-December, according to a Dec. 18 New York Times story. […]
Petraeus made the mistake of not realizing that Barack Obama was an unmitigated FOOL unlike Bush, who listened to his generals’ recommendations. That’s the bottom line.
Every single general was absolutely and fundamentally and profoundly opposed to Obama’s cut-and-run policy and knew it would amount to a return of the very war we had WON with American blood and treasure. But Obama did it anyway. And NO, it had NOTHING to do with the “status of forces agreement” that Bush signed. Bush signed that agreement having listened to his generals – something Obama has STILL never done – and understanding that the agreement would do nothing to constrain our policy objectives because there were plenty of ways for our troops to remain and keep the peace we had won. Rather, Obama unilaterally determined to do something that his generals said was foolhardy and which history has since proven to have been foolhardy.
President Obama’s decision to pull all U.S. forces out of Iraq by Dec. 31 is an “absolute disaster” that puts the burgeoning Arab democracy at risk of an Iranian “strangling,” said an architect of the 2007 troop surge that turned around a losing war.
Retired Army Gen. John M. Keane was at the forefront of persuading President George W. Bush to scuttle a static counterinsurgency strategy and replace it with 30,000 reinforcements and a more activist, street-by-street counterterrorism tactic.
Today, even with that strategy producing a huge drop in daily attacks, Gen. Keane bluntly told The Washington Times that the United States again is losing.
U.S. troops will be vacating Iraq at a time when neither Baghdad’s counterterrorism skills nor its abilities to protect against invasion are at levels needed to fully protect the country, say analysts long involved in the nearly nine-year war.
“Forty-four hundred lives lost,” Gen. Keane said. “Tens of thousands of troops wounded. Over a couple hundred thousand Iraqis killed. We liberated 25 million people. There is only one Arab Muslim country that elects its own government, and that is Iraq.
Obama gave up Iraq. He abandoned Syria after making one of the most foolish threats in history and then proving he was a coward and a paper tiger by abandoning his own words when he declared a “red line” in Syria that Syria stepped across over and over and over again. And in so doing Obama pissed away any shred of credibility he still had. And he has NONE now in the eyes of either our enemies or our wavering allies.
And as a result of Obama’s absolute foolish and pathetic gutlessness, consider the results: and HOW DOES THIS NOT PROVE OBAMA HAS FAILED BEYOND CATASTROPHE!!!???
Terrorism Toll 800% Higher Since 2010
“I don’t think people have grasped how significant these numbers are.”
News | Mark Tapson
A new report blames the rapid expansion of Islamist groups across the Middle East and Africa for the booming death toll of terrorism worldwide: a nearly 800 percent rise since 2010.
According to Fox News, terrorism expert Steven Emerson’s nonprofit Investigative Project on Terrorism (IPT) found that an average of nearly 30,000 people per year have been killed by terrorists since 2010, when terrorism’s death toll was 3,284. The study identifies two troubling trends: more attacks are happening, and they are deadlier than ever.
Emerson, the executive director of IPT, said,
“Everyone has known that terrorist attacks have generally been increasing yearly since 9/11. But the magnitude of the increase of the attacks surprised us, especially in the past five years. Even if you look back at the annual reports issued by the most senior analysts in the top five intelligence and counter-terrorism agencies, there is not one report that predicted or forecasted that we would likely see such a massive escalation of attacks.”
The study credits the rise in part to the fact that Islamist terror groups like Boko Haram in Nigeria, Al Shabaab in Somalia, a resurgent Taliban, Palestinian terrorists, and President Obama’s JB team ISIS are operating in more countries than ever, especially in the Middle East and Africa.
IPT’s report used data collected by the University of Maryland’s Global Terrorism Database. Looking at various intervals following the 9/11 attacks, and sorting out deaths caused by clear acts of terrorism — not simply war involving known terrorist groups — IPT found annual terror deaths have jumped 774 percent since the 2007-11 average.
‘[The numbers] are striking when you take into account where the numbers were at the beginning period,” said Pete Hoekstra, who chaired the House Intelligence Committee when he represented Michigan in the U.S. Congress. “I don’t think people have grasped how significant these [death toll] numbers are.” […]
The attack we just saw in Orlando, Florida – THE worst mass shooting in all of American HISTORY very much in spite of the fact that this is a nation that has been a gun culture from day ONE – ought to be all you need to prove that things are getting worse and worse and worse rather than better and better and better.
When you look at the giant jump in terrorist killings between 2012-13 and 2014-15 – to the tune of a DOUBLING of deaths caused by terrorism – we can consider the trend and safely estimate that terrorism will create at least 45,000 deaths in the 2016-17 year range and as many as 60,000 deaths. Which is to say that by the time Obama leaves office, he will be personally responsible for a 1,270 percent increase to as much as a 1,707 percent increase in terrorist killings during his watch.
Question: How can these people say their policies and their strategies and their solutions have done anything but fail and then wildly fail and then demonically fail some more??? Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, John Kerry and the whole LOT of Democrats are now proven rabid fools by the only measure that matters: the measure of actual fact.
Think about it: if you are a Democrat, you are actually so demon-possessed insane-stupid to believe these are good things, and that Obama making the world a thousand percent PLUS worse than Bush is a good thing.
That’s where we are at now: we are dealing with a Party that is lock, stock and barrel owned by Satan. And Barack Obama is Allah’s Most Useful Idiot.
It is beyond amazing that we have had THOUSANDS of terrorist attacks with tens of thousands of deaths, and yet somehow the fact that 99.99999999999999999999 percent of these attacks have been from people claiming to be Muslims killing in the name of Allah is nothing but the most trivial coincidence.
It’s not enough that they dismiss the obvious link between terrorism and Islam and Islam and violence. I’ve written about why it is a genetic, pathological condition that stems from the Prophet Muhammad himself as revealed in both the Qur’an and the history of Islam. The very word “assassin” came from the first Muslim Fedayeen in the 11th century. The Muslim terrorists we see today are as old as Islam. That followed Muhammad’s reign of terror and violence in Arabia; that followed the vicious split between Sunni and Shiite over who should succeed Muhammad upon his death; that was subsequently followed by the invasion of Christian Europe by Muslims that was finally stopped in FRANCE on the opposite side of the continent by Charles “the Hammer” Martel one hundred years after Muhammad’s death (by poisoning by his own Muslim followers); and after that there was the Muslim attempted violent conquest of Spain until they were stopped by El Cid. at some point, of course, rabidly intolerant Muslims built their Dome of the Rock DIRECTLY ON TOP of the Wailing Wall that represents the holiest site in all Judaism. And if Democrats had any integrity whatsoever, they would demand that Islam tear down that mosque and allow Israel to have the sacred site that was clearly there first BECAUSE MUSLIMS BUILT THEIR DAMN MOSQUE DIRECTLY ON TOP OF IT. Again, our own founding fathers had to deal with Islamic terrorists, because that’s exactly what the Barbary Pirates were.
Islam is violence and it is terrorism. And it always HAS been violence and terrorism unless it was cowed into being peaceful by the raw power of those who would otherwise be forced to submit to Islam.
That’s right. Islam means “Submission.” And because of Islam SOMETHING and SOMEONE is going to be FORCED to submit; either they will submit or they will submit us to their totalitarian political system masquerading as a peaceful religion.
But Democrats go even FARTHER, and slander and demagogue in such a manner that any attempt to point out the truth about the nature of Islam, or the demand that Muslims come to grips with the obvious violence that is routinely carried out by this “peaceful” religion, is somehow inciting and thereby being responsible for even more violence from these savage beheaders. In fact, they tell us, even to try to put them in prison is itself an incitement; which is why we must first of all acknowledge that America is actually to blame for terrorism and then dismantle Gitmo.
PLEASE stop and think about that whackjob blather: think of how most of the 1.6 billion Muslims who live in Muslim countries treat women, treat gays, etc. If you TRULY don’t want to incite and inflame Muslims, HOW THE HELL COULD YOU VOTE FOR A DAMN WOMAN PRESIDENT WHEN THAT IS PROBABLY THE ULTIMATE INSULT TO MUSLIMS???
THIS is what Hillary Clinton ought to be doing if she or her Democrat Party truly wants to respect Islam (standing there in her hijab because she doesn’t have the damn right to do anything else):
This is how MOST Muslim women on this planet dress: WHY DON’T YOU DRESS THAT WAY, DEMOCRAT??? Because you WOULD, IF you had any honor or decency or virtue or integrity whatsoever based on your own constant denunciations against conservatives for “inciting” more terrorism.
I mean, at least Hillary doesn’t drive a car, because she is a rich elitist who has been chauffeured around most of her life. But NO Democrat woman ought to be driving a car, or getting an education, or being viewed in public without a male relative to escort her and order her around, or being viewed at ALL because she will wear a hijab.
Oh, mindless liberal, you say Muslims are FINE with a female president as you keep (falsely and frankly idiotically) lecturing us that the only reason the Muslim terrorist attacked was because he was homophobic – you know, due to Republicans’ and Christians’ insistence on basic morality??? Well, listen to an imam who taught the Orlando shooter Omar Mateen:
A fundamentalist Muslim imam who hosted an online seminary course attended by Orlando terrorist Omar Mateen – but who denied ties to the “gay” nightclub murderer – told Greta Van Susteren during a Fox News interview that Hillary Clinton shouldn’t be president because according to his faith’s prophet, her anger during her monthly menstruation cycle would make her a poor leader.
“As a Muslim, I object to Hillary Clinton,” said Abu Taubah, who’s also gone by the name of Marcus Dwayne Robertson, a former U.S. Marine who’s worked as a bodyguard for Omar Abdel-Rahman, the “Blind Sheik,” Breitbart reported. The “Blind Sheik” was involved in the 1993 World Trade Center attack.
He expanded on his views of women in leadership roles, saying the idea wasn’t compatible with his religious beliefs.
“I don’t believe women should be the president of a nation. … [Our prophet] taught us that whenever a woman is in charge, is going to be problems,” he said. “What if she’s on her menses and it’s time to go to war, she going to press the button cause she’s angry? I like Bernie [Sanders].”
If you truly don’t want to offend Islam, VOTE FOR WHATEVER MAN IS RUNNING AGAINST HER. OR AT LEAST PLEASE SHUT UP WITH YOUR PC BULLCRAP THAT CONSERVATIVES ARE “OFFENDING” MUSLIMS AND KEEPING THIS WAR GOING WHEN IT IS YOU WHO ARE OFFENDING MUSLIMS AND KEEPING THIS DAMN WAR GOING BY YOUR OWN LOGIC.
In the same way, given Koranic teaching, given the teaching embraced by the entirety of the Islamic world, how do you justify passing LGBT and gay marriage laws??? How is THAT not a giant, radical, massive act of defiant incitement against Islam??? If you want to show “tolerance” and “respect” for Islam, Democrats, you are STONING these depraved infidel perverts. BECAUSE THAT IS WHAT MUSLIMS DO ALL OVER THE DAMN WORLD.
Bottom line, to the extent that Muslims have any right to hate us, any right to blame us, any right to attack us, it is because of DEMOCRATS and ONLY because of Democrats.
And yet the same demonic bureaucrats otherwise known as DEMOCRATS maintain that just as Obama has been “successful” in his strategy against terrorism (that has nothing to do with Islam; nope, nothin’ to see here, folks!) likewise believe that their own IN-YOUR-FACE-ISLAM liberal policies are anything other than justifications for continued Muslim terrorist slaughter of Westerners.
No human being could even possibly be that stupid unless “the god of this world” were “blinding their eyes so they cannot see” (2 Corinthians 4:4). And yet we’re seeing this level of stupid all around us.
Lastly, there is this vile myth that somehow Obama and Hillary Clinton are these “voices of tolerance” against the rabid intolerance of Trumps and against conservatives and against Christians. I am just so beyond SICK of it. Donald Trump – responding to Obama’s childish rant – pointed out the fact that Obama was far angrier at Trump than he was at the Orlando terrorist shooter. And other than demonizing guns and our Bill of Rights that guarantees Americans have the absolute constitutional right to keep and bear them, Obama is absolutely bloodless and passionless about decrying the terrorism that he still steadfastly refuses to identity the actual damn SOURCE of. In his childish, unhinged rant he refers to demands that he acknowledge Islam as the source of terrorism as a “magic word,” as if it truly doesn’t matter whether or not we know who our enemy is and that it makes no difference if we blindfold ourselves and swing wildly in all directions rather than having a coherent strategy that will actually do something other than produce death tolls that increase over a thousand percent. Because no you are NOT merely “calling it a different name”; you are finally correctly identifying its actual source which means we could finally DO SOMETHING TO DEAL WITH IT AND STOP IT.
Again, when terrorism has already increased over 800 percent during your failed watch, Obama, and is likely to have increased by over FIFTEEN HUNDRED PERCENT by the time you finally leave your wretched office, maybe, just maybe, you HAVEN’T done “everything to do with actually defeating terrorism.” Maybe it’s YOU who ought to stop your “yapping” you craven, yapping hyena.
I want you to see the result of Obama’s and Hillary Clinton’s hateful rhetoric against Trump and against conservatives. Because one political party in America today – the Democratic Party – has actually OPENLY EMBRACED political viciousness and violence and thuggishness and I dare say TERRORISM against the other party:
That’s what it looks like to be a conservative today as Democratic Party Nazi SA Brownshirt thugs surround you and start attacking you.
We are watching organized Democrat violence against the Republican Party. And the Democrats, like the Nazis, actually make the Nazi claim that their victims deserve their vicious beatings.
Democrats are nothing short of the worst hypocrites who ever lived in all of human history.
Obama and Hillary Clinton are seemingly gleefully allowing terrorism abroad and terrorism from their own party.
In Greek mythology, there is the story of Cassandra, who was given a box by the god Apollo and told never to open it. But curiosity got the better of her, and so she opened it and was able to clearly see the future. But the gods, in their stratagem to solve the crisis, ordained it that while Cassandra would scream and rave of what would be, no one would ever believe her.
That is precisely what it is like to be a Bible-believing Christian and a conservative thinker in today’s mass -media-mindless world.
And so people like me sit here, stunned, having predicted for eight terrible years that Obama would fail in every way, and having been proven right over and over with every matter, realizing the horror of living in a world where truth means nothing, and reality means nothing, and morality means nothing.
