Posted on 09/14/2012 12:50:10 PM PDT by robowombat
Middle East expert Walid Phares tells Newsmax.TV that the war with the jihadists is on and that the whole world is a battlefield as a result.
The administration needs to explain to the American public that the war with the Jihadists is on, even if we withdraw from Iraq, even if we withdraw from Afghanistan, Phares tells Newsmax in an exclusive interview. The jihadists are not withdrawing. So it is a unilateral withdrawal from the confrontation on behalf of the Obama administration.
And we do need to, if not expect, but at least project, that as long as this enemy these terrorists have any intention of harming us, the whole world is a battlefield, not just Iraq and Afghanistan.
They hit in Libya. They could hit in any other place, he added. So the American public should be prepared, better prepared, by its administration.
.... This is an attack against our diplomats in a country with which weve had good relations since the rebels took over and took down Gadhafi.
But this is also indicative on the strategic level, he added. President Obama said that after bin Laden, al-Qaida is going down and this is evidence that al-Qaida is spreading in areas where it was not operational, such as Libya and, of course, Somalia, Northern Mali, Syria, Iraq.
As such, President Barack Obamas White House needs to review its own assessment of the strength of al-Qaida and its response to al-Qaida, Phares said. It also needs to review its policy with regard to the Arab Spring because, unfortunately, the administration partnered politically partnered with the Muslim Brotherhood, giving a lot of visibility to those movements. And, of course, al-Qaida took advantage of it.

I agree, the war is on.
Hussein 0bama unilaterally surrenders.
When it was ON HOLD or STOPPED, it was always on.
It also appears that the old 60s acid nonsense about "Suppose they gave a war and nobody came" bull**** doesn't work with the muzzies. We don't have to "came" to the war, they're going to bring their asswhoopin' to us!
It is time for collective punishment. It is time to break the will of the Islamic world by destroying their cities and their infrastructure. We need to break them like we broke the Japanese and the Germans with TOTAL WAR. We do this and the jihadists will lose their base of support.
The war has been on since November 4, 1979, the day persian muslim militants took th eUS Embassy in Tehran, Iran, over and held the staff for more than 400 days. The feckless democrat party and their criminally complict propaganda arm - the MSM - ignore that the inbred, pedophilic musloid cult are at war with us, be we refuse to acknowledge that.
“Phares, a foreign affairs and national security adviser to Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney...”
This makes me feel even better about Romney. I read one of Phares’ books, “Future Jihad”, and I was impressed with his understanding and explanation of the muslim world and what drives them. I highly recommend it.
For me any presidential candidate that doesn’t take the jihadi threat seriously would not get my vote. The fact that Romney has chosen this guy as one of his adviser tells me he gets it.
This has been going on for years.
We've made mistakes through current and previous administrations. Our government is suppose to protect the American people not worry about stupid issues like peanut butter seeming to have a racist meaning.
Perhaps it is time to take a historical lesson from the subordinate generals to General of the Army John Joseph “Black Jack” Pershing, who applied US Army Order #100 against Muslims during the Philippine insurrection.
That is, let us distinguish between “peaceful” Muslims and “warlike” Muslims. We treat the “peaceful” Muslims with the respect appropriate to peaceful civilians, but the “warlike” Muslims, *and their supporters*, should not only be killed, but disposed of in pits full of pig offal.
Terrorists are not uniformed or honorable soldiers, so should not be treated with the respect afforded warriors who fight other warriors under the rules of war.
Instead, when fought, no great effort should be made to capture them, and if captured, they should be given a military trial in which a field officer (of rank O4+) may immediately sentence them to death and order their execution, after they are asked to produce evidence of their identity for their relatives, if they choose to do so.
Typically they may be executed by hanging or firing squad, at the direction of the field officer. A brief annotation as to their trial and execution should be retained by the officer.
Then off to the offal pit with them.
Could this be orchestrated by the Obama Administration of aged 1960s Marxist-Alinsky campus psycho spoiled brats and their bratty ideological issue like Obama -- in coordination with the mentally deranged issue of centuries of Islamism's consanguineous marriages; i.e., the jihadists?
All those jihadists hustled across the border by the Obama Administration of aged 1960s Marxist-Alinsky campus psycho spoiled brats and their bratty ideological issue are ready to create havoc -- on urging of the Obama Administration?
Is this the mother of all October surprises where Obama suspends the Constitution?
He has already suspended the Constitution on numerous occasions with nary an objection. He’s not going to make any bold pronouncements about that dusty old document that might alarm the villagers. He just takes his objectives one step at a time by writing an Executive Order or a PDD.
Yes, it's been "on" since the Carter admin. sold out the Shah and let the fundamentalists establish their religious jihad in Iran. The problem is that only one side has been fighting in the war because our side can't seem to figure out who the enemy is.
Iran wants Nukes? Let’s send ‘em a few, courtesy USAF, starting Jan. 29, 2913 at about 1PM.

I would suggest that it actually began in September, 1970, when the PLO hijacked several airliners and burned them in the desert. Instead of taking swift, decisive military action against the terrorists, we started sending Arafat millions of dollars and gave him a Nobel Peace Prize.
You may be correct. The failure to respond emboldens, no matter who or what.
