Obama flirts with disaster, negotiates with Taliban ^ | May 4, 2012 | Michael Dorstewitz

One day, a scorpion reached a river he wanted to cross. He saw a frog on the other side and called out, "Would you be so kind as to give me a ride on your back across the river?" "How do I know that if I help you, you wont try to kill me?" asked the frog hesitantly. "Because," the scorpion replied, "If I try to kill you, then I would die, too, for you see I cannot swim!" So the frog agreed. He swam over, and the scorpion crawled onto the frog's back. Halfway across the river, the frog felt a sharp sting and felt himself grow numb. "You fool!" croaked the frog. "Now we shall both die! Why on earth did you do that?" The scorpion shrugged and said, "I couldn’t help myself. It’s my nature."

On the anniversary of Osama bin Laden’s death, President Barack Obama highlighted a security agreement he and Afghan President Hamid Karzai had signed that purported to usher in "a future in which the war ends, and a new chapter begins." The president also said his administration is in direct negotiations with the Taliban. As Obama winged his way back home, two explosions erupted in Kabul, killing six and wounding 17. The Taliban immediately took credit for the suicide bombings. So much for negotiations.

dec 2011 The Taliban are not an enemy of the U.S. and should not be talked about in such terms, Joe Biden has claimed.
The vice-president said the militant Islamist group only represents an inherent threat if it allows Al-Qaeda to strike at the U.S.
In an interview with Newsweek, Mr Biden warned against labelling the Taliban as an enemy.

Biden is an idiot. Of course they’re our enemy. They shouldn’t let that guy out in public.

There are fools, and then there are da**ed fools, and then there are the fools you cannot believe they grew up without a breathing apparattas

... or somehow has millions of biggers idiots votes for him in a presidential election.

I keep trying to figure out how, who what happened, and who stole our country. Did we let them? And now we negotiate withtthe people who splay acid on little school girls , scare goats ####le$ make bacha bazi boys into playthings that have pervs in this country dreaming of a foul night in Kabul, they kill at every new Mullah's translation of their bloody old Qur'an? Who is running this show

Devil's in the details, all the details.

Just a thought here, the good Lord is doing what He did in the Book of Judges, what he did in the days of Noah and just letting all the earth people have their say, their day and do what is righteous in their own eyes. Shouldn't be long now but I do wonder how many Christians and Jews( oh and the rest of all you who do not bow down to he that can fool the very elect) will have to be murderered until God brings down His true wrath. I surely do not want to see it.
