This is getting ridiculous and I again call for our country to pull our men and women out of this fight unless we get serious about Afghanistan. There are lists of appropriate terms of engagement that handcuff our troops and keep them from finishing this fight. The Obama Administration does not recognize exactly who our enemies are either by changing the War On Terrorism to the War With Al Qaeda. We are fighting Jihadists that represent many different groups. One of those groups is the Taliban.
Recently, Pakistan captured the Taliban number two leader, Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar, with the help of United States Intelligence. Instead of thanking Pakistan and the U.S., Afghan President Hamid Karzai is angry. He had plans to hold a peace conference and Baradar was to attend. Karzai has for months made his intentions of working with the Taliban known. The moment I heard Karzai make such remarks, I was done with this false nation building. Afghanistan cannot be restored to its former self with the Taliban leading, in any way. And common sense tells us that the minute the Americans are gone, the Taliban will push Karzai out or bring him over to their side because Karzai is corrupt.
As long as the Afghan leader wants to make peace with the group responsible for harboring, training, funding and helping in ever way possible the 9/11 terrorists and the group responsible for stoning women in soccer fields and the streets, then we should have no troops aiding that country. But that will not happen with Barack Hussein Obama at the helm of the military. He held a phone conference with Karzai yesterday and reiterated his desire for reconciliation. Perhaps he thought that he was discussing ObamaCare with Karzai?
It is time to stop wasting the efforts of our troops and they should not have to give their lives for this.
For years we have been living under a political correctness filter that is now endangering our lives. I am either more sensitive to it since 9/11 or the country has fallen down further into this rabbit hole. The events at Ft. Hood shine a light on this painful truth in America: Our political correctness is destroying us. And this is not just the case when it comes to Islam and Jihadists, although that is the most glaring example. Our political correctness has led us to elect a panty-waist leader who has become an apologist to the world. We’re sorry for being prosperous and Capitalistic. We’re sorry for being free. This apologist attitude has left us whimpering at the door of Iran. Iran will have the nuclear weapon in time and we will be left living under a fear that the Cold War never instilled. At least the Soviet Union cared a bit for its people. Jihadists and Muslim extremists – who are the norm, no PC here – do not even care about their own lives.
Political correctness has given way to a zero tolerance zoning in schools that leaves six-year-olds expelled for having Boy Scout equipment with them and teenagers with survival gear losing college prospects. Political correctness has led us to push God out of the center square because we do not want to offend anyone. How dare we Christians wish someone “Merry Christmas”. Now we have winter festivals and Xmas decorations. We take down the ten commandments and yank prayer out of school, unless you’re a Muslim. Little old ladies are given the full pat down at airports, while dark-skinned men wearing turbans are ignored.
Political correctness keeps people from speaking their minds, which erodes our free speech. Sometimes that free speech may hurt, but it is a fundamental right that this country is erasing. The Fairness Doctrine seeks to make talk radio more “fair” and keep conservativism from sweeping the internet. Political correctness keeps people from telling the truth and then sometimes it is too late.
Political correctness is a fundamental problem in this country and the Ft, Hood Massacre only shines light on that fact. Freedom’s Wings is a no PC zone, so I say what I want and welcome others to do the same. I have never erased a comment or edited it except for profanity or being spam.
