actually, i feel the only solution to the the muslim problem is to eliminate them.
then there is no problem.
let them eat pork.
Sounds to me like two guys bragging about who can insert us into the most foreign disputes when we need to get the hell out.
Romney also missed a chance when Bammy said “I” stood with the Tunisians and Libyans. Romney should have reminded him that both countries are now unstable messes as is Egypt. He should have then reminded Obama that he didn’t stand with the Iranian people when they were calling for real reform.
Another ignored reality was Russia’s involvement in the middle eastern events and how that affects our interests. Russia has flatly stated that an attack on Iran would be perceived as an attack on Russia and has aided them in developing their nuclear program and yet Barack Obama wants to believe that Russia isn’t a threat and that the cold war is all over. This on the anniversary of the Cuban missile crisis no less. How’s that for irony? Romney should have gutted Obama over that cold war comment.
I felt like the elephant in the room that nobody would talk about was the fact that Obama inherited a Middle East that was supportive of America’s anti-terrorism and those governments have since been replaced by Islamist regimes that openly side with terrorists and persecute non-Muslims. At the same time, the Obama regime has given up on defeating the Taliban and has instead turned to negotiating with the Taliban, with the idea that if the Taliban is terrorizing its own people it will stop exporting the terror. It’s still terror; it’s just terror against the very people that Obama and Romney both say need to stand against terrorism in those countries.
What we got was platitudes, with nobody actually addressing the extremely vulnerable position America is now in, after 4 years of Obama’s foreign policy failures.
Yep. Have to agree with you.
This is part and parcel of the Ivy League mindset. There are some ideas that are too radical for people from the Ivy League to wrap their heads around - ideas that seem so common sense, so obvious that anyone should be able to see them like the sun in a clear midday sky, but the graduates of the Ivy League moron factories get heavily invested in certain mindsets which are considered ‘acceptable.’
The obvious facts then become ‘unacceptable.’
And the unacceptable facts in the middle east - that Islam is an expansionist military doctrine posing as theology, that Moslems fall into two groups (jihadists and silent apologists for the first group) and that they’re seeking to regain what they’ve lost from the 17th century or so... those ideas might be obvious to us, but they will never be spoken aloud by the graduates of the Ivy League schools.
Which is why I didn’t vote for Mittens (and I sure as hell didn’t vote for Obama). I’ve had it with these wishy-washing, RINO Republicans. I’m just washing my hands of them.
