  1. This horrible selfish president is, as usually, only doing this to save his reelection with a smokescreen of obviously untruthful statements but isn´t there a real war fatigue among the American people ?

    • Dear lady,

      I would agree that a good portion of the American people are fatigued by the war(s). However, I truly believe those of us who know how to think realize that it is better to take it to the enemy than to sit by and allow the enemy to bring it to us. That is what happened under Clinton, and we were rewarded with 9/11.

      The terrifying part of Obama’s strategy is its blatant politics. Relieve military families of the angst they endure daily while loved ones are deployed, talk a good “game” of how we will save in “blood and treasury”, spin every little success as being strictly Obama’s doing, and dupe the American public into voting him in for a second term.

      His comment tonight about rebuilding this nation had me screaming at the telly. This nation would not need “rebuilding” if the Regressives (I cannot in clear conscious call them Progressive, because they are wanting to step back in history and mimic the failed policies of communism) had not allowed the MAC twins to destroy the housing industry, had not allowed runaway spending (the GOP is just as much at fault on that one), had not sought to force social engineering on the American people at every turn, I could go on, but you see the point.

      America can survive this travail, but only if good men and women are willing to line the streets and say “NO MORE!” Or as Howard Beale put it so aptly, “I’M AS MAD AS HELL, AND I’M NOT GOING TO TAKE THIS ANYMORE!”

        Sorry–can’t go with this one anymore. Pretty tired. Nothing personal. honestly don’t think some opium farmers are going to attack us. As of the sanctuaries–they have 100 others to use. In 10 yrs, circumstances have changed. Period.

        • Star,

          This is one we will have to agree to disagree. It’s not some opium farmer that is the concern, but rather a resurgent Taliban, and a re-establishment of al-Qaeda in an area that will offer it protection that concerns me.

          Having seen professionally the fact that the enemy is already on our shores, they are recruiting in our prisons, in our housing projects, and where ever they can find people who consider themselves disenfranchised, economically oppressed, and basically kept down by the “man.” I have interviewed scores of former prison inmates who have, while not yet radicalized, espoused the same rhetoric and hate for America that the American born al-Awlaki preaches.

          I, too, am tired of seeing American lives and money shipped overseas simply to hear that we are “dogs”, “imperialists”, and a lot worse. But I also know that this fight is not over. Not by a long shot. In April of 1995, after Oklahoma City, I realized the potential for a terror attack on the city/county government center where I live. The building was designed in such a way that a truck loaded with explosives could drive right into the main lobby. I was working for a law enforcement agency at the time, and presented my concerns to the administration. I was laughed at, and told that no one was going to bomb some local municipality or even any other building here in the US. Timothy McVeigh was an aberration. Fast forward to 9/11.

          Blood and treasure has been wasted in many ways during our 10 year battle with radical Islam, but it has also been used effectively to keep Americans safe here at home. Keep the enemy on the run and on the ropes. I am assuming (hate doing that) that you have never been in a real fight, physical or fire, one where the outcome was either destroying the attacker or being killed. I have, and through my experience and training I have learned that you either totally destroy the enemy or as soon as you turn your back on him, he will pounce and you may be dead.
