One of the great yogi-isms and far more perspicacious than “You can observe a lot by watching,” is Yogi’s classic, “It ain’t over ’til it’s over.” That should be obvious in baseball as well as in war.
Our supremely-confident president felt that America’s War on Terror was over with his ascendancy to his office, that is, if that war ever existed. Perhaps influenced by his Muslim roots, Obama doesn’t believe in any such thing as worldwide Islamic terrorism so how can we have a war against it?
This allegedly brilliant man could learn a great deal from the wisdom of the very uneducated Yogi Berra who might have appended another word for Obama to his quotation: ”It’s not over til it’s over, Dolt!”
And, don’t try to feed me the lie that “Obama just sent 30,000 more troops to Afghanistan so that proves he’s serious about battling terrorism!” Those troops, whose numbers suddenly grew to 40,000 according to some Democrat Party hack on Fox News Wednesday, are a charade.
At best, they will save some American lives but with Obama’s 2011 deadline for a political miracle in that sorry nation, the Taliban and al Qaeda are gleefully waiting until Obama’s troops come marching home so they can pick up where they left off in 2001.
These terrorists, as well as being a blood-thirsty lot, are a smart and patient lot.
Meanwhile, Commander-in-Chief Obama is failing to fight the most proximate last war, George W. Bush’s War on Terrorism launched on October 7th 2001 and amazingly concluded by Barack Hussein Obama in short order on January 20th, 2009.
Precisely what war, if any, Obama is fighting is hard to determine.
Aside from all the documented ineptness of the Obamians over the last year and especially over the five days since twisted Muslim Abdulmutallab’s gave himself the hottest thrill his crotch will ever receive, it seems there’s much more to come as our leader pretends to lead.
Former VP Dick Cheney, the arch-villain and chief boogeyman of leftists who despise him because he is right, called a spade a spade when he said Mr. Obama was “trying to pretend we are not at war:” http://bit.ly/4IT5HR
Message to Barry: Pretend games were much more fun when you were four. Isn’t it time to play a grown-up?
One great way to show you’re not still a kid sopping up Islamic propaganda in Indonesia is to acknowledge that Major Nidal Malik Hasan’s massacre of innocents in Fort Hood was an act of Muslim jihadism.
Another way is to concede the obvious, that Abdulmutallab’s crotch-fire aboard NWA’s flight 253 wasn’t due to his seeking a sick sexual thrill but part of a pattern of terrorist events which, combined, should constitute a war.
I’m sure Obama reaches for the Purell when that “W-word” is uttered but he should remember that when ostriches bury their heads in the sand they often end up as dinner for lions and tigers who just spit out the sand after they chomp down on ostrich heads.
To deny a pattern exists in Islamic terror attacks and allege they are all isolated events is tantamount to denying the existence of our ongoing war for survival against terrorists.
Then again, our president has already denied the existence of that war so the rest must be easy for him.
For Barack’s edification, here are a few contrarian views:
. Last August’s unsuccessful attempt to assassinate the deputy Saudi Arabian interior minister was conducted by a jihadist who also was trained in Yemen and who used the same PETN explosive secreted in his underwear: http://bit.ly/4FHQeI
. The Yemeni foreign minister admits that, “Hundreds of al-Qaeda militants are planning terror attacks from Yemen:” http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/world/article6970574.ece
. ABC reports that ”Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab . . . told FBI agents there were more just like him in Yemen who would strike soon:” http://bit.ly/4IbKhi
If Obama really thinks Umar was just an isolated nutcase like Major Nidal, he’s as much a fruitcake as Umar Abdulmutallab and Nidal Hasan and should be removed from office, along with his winner DHS secretary Janet Napolitano, before they can do any more damage.
Mark Davis, a fill-in for Rush Limbaugh, made a brilliant observation, more brilliant even than Yogi’s.
In effect saying, they started this so it’s up to us to finish it, on our terms, not theirs.
In reference to treating murderous Muslim whackos as the equivalent of 7-11 thieves and promising them “justice,” Davis disagreed and offered a far better approach: Mercilessly destroy all enemy combatants and their compatriots and lay waste their lands, homes, and refuges.
The alternative may be that they do unto us before we find the nerve to do unto them first.
Never happen? Think again then pick just one of the above. It’s advisable you consider your kids and grandkids before making your choice.
It’s also not advisable you allow them to join the million-person strong revellers in Times Square on New Year’s Eve.
Talk about a deliciously-tempting target, even if an attack were staged by some isolated Obamian Islamic maniacs.
