Obama Admin: The War On Terror Is 'Over'
Big Peace ^ | 04-24-12 | Ben Shapiro

Posted on 04/24/2012 12:11:07 AM PDT by Lazlo in PA

Today, the National Journal reported that a senior State Department official has announced, “The war on terror is over.”

“Now that we have killed most of al Qaida,” the source said, “now that people have come to see legitimate means of expression, people who once might have gone into al Qaida see an opportunity for a legitimate Islamism.”

The article itself describes the Obama administration’s new vision of foreign policy, which admits no enemies. Everyone, in this view, is a friend. Islamism, says the Obama administration, is just fine, so long as it does not openly support terrorism.

This, of course, is utter foolishness. Islamism is a religious ideological movement that brooks no real alternatives – so while the State Department proclaims “a legitimate Islamism,” it fails to acknowledge that Islamism, “legitimate” or not, is deeply intolerant of any other modes of expression. Not only that, but Islamism works hand-in-glove with terror groups around the world. Simply because a regime does not openly house al Qaida does not mean that the regime doesn’t support al Qaida; just because a regime pretends at democracy doesn’t mean that it has real democratic values.

Obama has created the brave new Middle East – a Middle East that assumes that every human heart has the desire to vote, but not to be truly free; a Middle East that oppresses women and gays and minorities, but pretends at liberalism; a Middle East that despises America but hides that hate behind a façade of multiculturalism, even as it disposes of its internal dissenters.

If we had any questions about the Regimes plan for dealing with the growing muslim Brotherhood problem after the Arab Spring, it's solved. They are now going to be our friends. Swell.

Well this is great news! So now the feds can begin dismantling that fascist monstrosity aka the 'Department of Homeland Security' and their little jackboot sockpuppets the 'TSA', because if the War on Terror is "over", then there is no longer a need for America to be under the thumb of the countless federal goons and thugs running rampant across our great Nation.

Give them all their walking papers!

I will believe it when

1) The TSA goes home
2) The barriers are removed from the roadways in front of the whitehouse
3) things stop going boom all over the world

You are correct. Not only that, Obama originally campaigned on a promise to get us out of two wars, yet one of his supposed crowning achievements for his current campaign, which the same libs who voted for him are cheering, is that "he killed Osama bin Laden", an act of war.

Noooo say it ain't so! Why, the Tea Party wasn't even in existence when the DHS/TSA abomination was ushered in by that grate champion of civil rights George W. Bush and "Pennsylvania's own Tom Ridge".

Pay no attention to those crazed fanatics over there, firing guns in the air to celebrate the announcement, burning the American and Israeli flag and p@##ing on the ashes as they hang Obama and Netanyahu in effigy. The war on terror is over. We won. The Great Oz has spoken.

The following was translated from Arabic:

We won! We won! The Great Satan is finished! But first let’s annihilate the Joooz! Martyrdom works! Suicide vests! Getcher fully armed suicide vests, rightcheer! Just be careful not to pull the little cord ‘til you get to your target. Chassidic rabbi and pregnant woman disguises! Rightcheer! Be the first one to strike the infidels where they are most vulnerable. Hijacking kits! All new hijacking kits! Can’t use a boxcutter and a fake bomb anymore. Too many American infidels think they’re Todd Beamer. All new, innovative hijacking kits!

Oh, this is is truly rich...Satan has been prematurely cast into the lake of fire and the all-gullible and willingly ignorant administration no longer is deceived. We can now breathe a sigh of genuine relief while the frying pan in which we are stewing slowly, slowly cooks us alive.
Yes, willingly knowledgeable, we must fire the whole lot of the dem leaders come Nov.

Watch his buds stay quiet through the campaign. After all, Anwar Alaqui spoke at a rally for H. 'Rap' Brown (now has a muslim name and is an Imam), just two days before 9/11.

Rap was an 'old' Black Panther, so it doesn't take much of a leap to figure the NBPs might be tied in to AlQaida too. Certainly the Muslim Brotherhood is, and they're Obama's buddies.

And no one has charged the NBP, either over blatant voter intimidation or over posting a bounty on a person who wasn't even charged with a crime at that time.

Any peace on the terror front is a sham designed to lull the gullible and put another false notch in Duh Won's resume.

Probably true until after the election—don't expect the Islamonazis to hurt their buddy Obama’s chances for reelection by acting up so they, like the Communists, are laying low until the Dog Eater's second term when they can get and do what they want.

Who's John Little ?

The war ON terror is indeed over.
Actually, it never began.

Every one of these "War Ons .. "started, stayed and continues with some freedom being threatened or taken BY OUR GOVERNMENT .. against US, We the people, .. and never returned.
The alleged "threat" that prompted said "war" has never been eliminated.

What HAS happened is;
We've been cowwed into submission to a power purporting to be "on our side" but in fact has all along been the enemy of America and Americanism.

War on poverty?
What? Some 40 years old and the only thing made poorer is the tax payer ... the poor is doing quite well (Romney)

War on drugs? They're still everywhere and if my tin foil is on correctly, doing the mind numbing job that any dictatorial government could possibly desire. (Keep 'em doped with religion n' sex n' TV .. John Lennon)

War on terror?

I feel more afraid and intimidated now than ever ... OBAMA MAY BE RE-ELECTED !

See?

Scarey, ain't it, Doc ?

They’re going to get us nuked.

When that does happen, the only good news is that the main targets are Liberal/Democrat welfare plantations.

Our cities are long gone. Nuking, say, Detroit, would only improve things and fix the electoral demographic.

That’s one way of doing it. Simply “deem” that obama has won the war on terror. And 48% of the people in this country will believe it. Another 10% or so can be convinced that it’s true.

MR OBAMA,Stand down all of the invasive programs you have implimented against the citizens of the United States , Obama, and secure our borders. And leave the George Zimmermans alone, and leave our system of justice alone! NO POLITICAL SHOW TRIALS.

UPHOLD THE CONSTITUTION!

The war against terror has just begun at home.

"The war on terror" may be.

The War on Terrorists being over is doubtful.

“Obama Admin: The War On Terror Is ‘Over’”

Translation: Leave my Muslim brothers alone so they can kill more civilians around the world.

BTW: Anyone notice that this puke has shown more support for 911 mastermind Khalid Sheik Mohammed than he has for George Zimmerman? Since he took office, him and Holder were hellbent on trying Khalid in a US court with full Constitutional rights. But Zimmermans case he takes sides. “Trayvon Martin could have been my son”..No statement to stop the death threats against Zimmerman, no statements saying Zimmerman should get a fair trial. No, only animals responsible for killing 3000 civilians should get a fair trial.

The message is that fearless leader has put down the nasty Muslims, we no longer have anything to fear because of the heroic actions our fearless leader took to stop the nasty ol’ Muslims, and he should therefore be reelected.

Many may wish the WOT was over but its not. This is not a situation where the USA can declare victory and go home. The WOT will be over when radical Islam has been defeated or when radical Islam has won.
