or are you being hypnotized by the young junior Senator?

LOL. Uh, yea that must be it.

I'd think the attack on the mosque, and the bombing of camps, his attempts with the judge, among other things have provided plenty of 'emboldening'. So in a word, no, I don't think that Obama's words (ill-advised though they may be) had any significant impact on how 'emboldened' his enemies are. They were before and after the comments, committed to the overthrow of Musharraf's western allied government, in order to install an Islamic state. The madrasses (sp?) are teaching the same thing before and after Obama's comments.

But if you have something demonstrable to suggest otherwise, present it. Eating my own words has, over the years, become nearly second nature.

LOL... OK I am overly observant... My comments specifically were to point out how dangerous the Democrats are in their assesment of how to fight the GWOT.... In other words.. Musharaf in his precarious position as the Pakistani President under threat from rebels in his own country rebels some loyal to UBL who are using the rally of jihad against the west to recruit and fund them, those terrorists could use Rhetoric like that of the ignorant Junior Senator to begin a rallying cry to launch a coup...

I also believe that the Rhetoric of the Democrats with their quagmire and defeatism politics launched only months after our initial launch of OIF is a major factor in why our efforts in Iraq have met with so much resistance...

Freedom of Speech and talking of alternative approaches by our military should only be allowed if it supports a positive outcome and victory. Anyone petitioning for defeat in the name of their political ambitions is guitly of treason.
