Yet, you're angry when you should be glad. What's the matter with you?
Angry? LOL.........That, along with "hate", are the words used as an ad hom 8th grade debating tactic of Howard Dean.
I respect someone whose opinion is very important on this issue, the parent of one of the victims of KSM's plot. I respect it more than some nut job talking about "allocating resources" and "someone must agree for comments to be valid".
How glad were you when mass murderer Saddam Hussein was taken captive and executed?
I'm glad that we have people with real courage to make and carry out tough decisions, in the U.S. military that has been brilliant at nearly every level of mission execution since the great man George Washington set the institution into action.
Obama made the "tough decision" to carry out elements of the Bush doctrine in giving permission to allow the intelligence and military to finish a job they had been gathering intelligence on for over a decade. The decision not to bomb wasn't any gutsy decision. Pakistan would have gone even more nuts and the lack of remaining body evidence would have created proof issues on whether OBL was actually there as well as fomented intense propaganda on America indiscriminately bombing innocent people from collateral bomb damage.
Had this been someone from another party, it would have been blasted as a violation of international law that killed "civilians".
The only reason the entertainment Republican pundits are being careful about being critical of the administration at this moment is because they understand that the Leftist's still dominate the mass media outlets.
The beauty of free speech is that I don't have to sanitize my comments on this issue.
Let's interrupt this euphoria over the rightful death of a man who is no more than a figure head in the daily operations and planning of AQ, easily replaced with another propaganda messenger face:
Obama's handlers ran a viscous campain about closing Gitmo in a year:
Gitmo is still open
Obama's handlers ran a viscous compain against "torture" of AQ members:
Finding OBL was likely the proximate cause of intelligence gathered from "torture" on KSM and other AQ captives
The death of OBL is an event that should cause celebration for only one reason:
The courage and extraordinary excellence of the best that this troubled Nation has left, the US Military and adjunct Intelligence Corps
Going forward, because suicide bombers welcome their own mortal death, the justice for one man has no impact whatsoever on the resolve of it's remaining and future members.
This Nation is only as safe as the strength of the U.S. Military and it's adjunct Intelligence Forces. Huge mistake to issue political rhetoric about how this Nation is safer as a result of this event. The support of our Armed Forces and Intelligence defenses must be increased to the highest levels we can sustain.
"we need enough troops that we are not just air-raiding villages and killing civilians
" (anyone know who said that about our U.S. Military operations?)http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wrW4fOGIMVY
People have selective memories on attitudes towards the US Military.
Let the US Military do it's job and it will do it as well as it can be done. But don't give it a job that changes with the "politics on the ground". The job of using force to fight evil and despots will never end until the end of days.
Bill, great thread title, well done.
