Say It Ain’t So, Joe

“Look, the Taliban per se is not our enemy.” —Vice President Joe Biden

“In war there is no substitute for victory.”—General Douglas MacArthur

“I am concerned for the security of our great Nation; not so much because of any threat from without, but because of the insidious forces working from within.” –General Douglas MacArthur

You hardly know where to start with these Vichyists.  If Obama and his henchmen had been in command during World War II, Hitler, Hirohito, and Tojo would’ve been invited to the White House for fried chicken and beers while Generals MacArthur and Patton were placed on the DHS domestic terrorist watch list:

President Welcomes Suspected Terrorist to White House

A former member of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard (IRGC) with suspected ties to a 1996 terrorist attack in Saudi Arabia that killed 19 U.S servicemen was part of an Iraqi government delegation visiting the White House December 12. The meeting coincided with President Obama’s announcement of the official end of the U.S. military presence in Iraq. According to the Washington Times, Hadi Farhan al-Amiri, Transportation Minister in the government of Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, “was part of the delegation that visited the White House to discuss Iraq’s future and Iran’s influence there, among other topics.”

…”[It is] extremely disturbing that the White House would see fit to welcome Al-Amiri to a discussion on the future of Iraq. If anything, he should be subject to questioning by the FBI and other appropriate U.S. law enforcement and counterterrorism agencies.” —U.S. Representative Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-Fla.), Chairwoman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee

In the World According To Obama, there’s no apparently no substitute for appeasement.  According to a number of sources, the administration has been conducting secret negotiations with the enemy in Afghanistan:

After ten months of secret dialogue with Afghanistan’s Taliban insurgents, stakes could not be higher.  Senior U.S. officials say the talks have reached a critical juncture and they will soon know whether a breakthrough is possible, leading to peace talks whose ultimate goal is to end the Afghan war.

…Mr Obama will likely face criticism, including from Republican presidential candidates, for dealing with an insurgent group that has killed U.S. soldiers and advocates a strict Islamic form of government.

…U.S. officials stress that the ‘end conditions’ they want the Taliban to embrace – renouncing violence, breaking with al Qaeda, and respecting the Afghan constitution – are not preconditions to starting talks.(Secret U.S. talks with Taliban reach critical juncture as U.S. considers transfer of Gitmo prisoners to Afghan custody)

“Peace With Honor?” Like in Vietnam, the last war the Democrats lost for us?  General MacArthur also said, “The enemy is in front of us, the enemy is behind us, the enemy is to the right and to the left of us. They can’t get away this time!”

MacArthur was right.  And in the America of 2012, the enemy is a President named Obama.

    I believe time will tell we accomplished nothing in Iraq except removing Saddam Hussein, losing thousands of our troops lives, many wounded and spending a ton of money. We will leave Afghanistan accomplishing less.

    Obama is a fool, and his court jesters are named Biden and H.Clinton.
    The more these people talk, the more we realize who the ring leader is.
    The question remains,…can we take them down in 2012 ?
    It is essential that we do for the good of the Country.

    Joe Biden may not be the most evil member of the Obama regime but he’s damned sure the most STOOPID! 😛

    Great post and I love the MacArthur quotes. I doubt today we could do the things that the “greatest generation” did during WWII. We must recognize evil in the world and be brave enough to call it what it is. Pandering to those who wish to destroy us will not dimish their hate for us but only embolden them. Peace through Strength. A great president once said that.

    We could have left in victory after we got Bin Osama, but the dream team is determined to drag this thing out until we must leave in defeat.
