Obama: “Wake Up And Smell The World Jihad”

 

When the men who killed our ambassador to Libya were in the final stages of their preparation, Hillary Clinton was in the Cook Islands, being regaled by locals in traditional dress.  Her seemingly endless world tour has prioritized symbolism and pageantry over substance.  So too has the administration of her boss, Barack Obama, and the costs are now becoming clear.

This explains why Obama’s chief diplomat said of the Libya attack: “I asked myself—how could this happen?  How could this happen in a country we helped liberate, in a city we helped save from destruction?”

Madam secretary, it is time for you and your boss to wake up and smell the global jihad. 

There are people in this world—and not a small number of them—who share the vision bin Laden had and have the will and means to act.  No amount of apologizing for America, embracing our adversaries or mistreating our allies will change that. 

It is worth recalling that Cairo, the city where a mob entered the US embassy compound and burned an American flag, was the epicenter of what critics call Obama’s “apology tour.”  It was there that he apologized for critical steps American officials took in the Middle East to defend against the Soviets eight years before Obama was born.  It was there that he criticized his own nation’s response to 9/11.

That was the reason US diplomats in Cairo instinctively put out an apologetic condemnation of those who “hurt the religious feelings of Muslims.”  They were simply channeling the Obama view of the world.

Hillary also said that the attack was the result of a “small and savage group.” 

Wrong again. 

Viewed correctly, the attack was perpetrated by a very large group.  Terrorism as we have known it since 9/11 is but the violent vanguard of the Islamist political ideology.  This ideology unifies diverse terrorists from Jemmah Islamiyah in Indonesia to Al-Shabaab in Somalia to Boko Haram in Nigeria to the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt to the Haqqani network in Afghanistan and Pakistan.

While the groups are diverse and at times antagonistic toward each other, their hatred of America unites them, and they work toward a generally common goal.  Behind them is a large body of people who cheer on and support Islamists—a minority of Muslims, but hardly a body of people we should ignore.

The American people have instinctively understood this threat since Islamists took over Iran and took our diplomats hostage there in 1979.  Our political class never has never understood this.

Instead, our foreign policy establishment, led by presidents of both parties, has spoken of “violent extremists” as if they had no common thread or clear ideological motivation.  More recently, President Obama has thumped his chest about killing Al Qaeda’s founder and implied that Al Qaeda is our only real enemy.  This is convenient and politically correct—but it is wrong.

If we killed everyone in Al Qaeda tomorrow, we would still have a problem that Obama, Hillary and the Washington foreign policy establishment refuse to recognize. There is a tyrannical political force in the world that is waging war on us wherever it can—both politically and militarily.

On Obama’s watch, the Islamists have done very well.  They have taken over Egypt and are set to take over Syria and its chemical weapons arsenal without a change in US policy.  They look ahead to the day U.S. forces leave Afghanistan—which Obama has conveniently announced to them.  And in the country where modern Islamism first came to life at the nation-state level, Iran, the government is set to gain a nuclear weapons capability—another Obama legacy.

Hillary ought to park the plane and understand that diplomacy—or more accurately statecraft—ought to be about recognizing and fighting these problems.  Pageantry, apologies and photo ops are obviously not getting it done.

Incompetence is bad enough.  But Obama, with his self induced blindness and outright sympathy toward Islam, their Jihads activist and misplaced respect for Sharia law, goes far past incompetence — it’s dangerous for America and Americans around the world.  That was throughly proven within the last few days.

These attacks, which aren’t “protests”, had nothing to do with a silly online video, as the Obama’s regime continues to falsely tout. The video was used as an ‘excuse’ for Obama, in his typical manner of ‘blaming’ anyone but himself. 

His policies of weakness are a failure in keeping back any enemy like Islam.  His policy of removing an Egyptian and Libyan rulers was ill advised at the time and have proved to be a disaster.  He replaced both men with terrorist and terrorist sympathizers called the ‘Muslim brotherhood’ .  Now 6 more people are dead due to Obama’s ineptness?

How many more will die as Obama shifts blame elsewhere in his failed ‘leading from behind’ insanity?

      Attacks on American embassy, people raped and murdered you can refer to that as “anti-muslim” propaganda? Facts aren’t propaganda. We, nor Israel, need an excuse to attack Iran, since they have made it clear their destructive intent toward Israel.

    WE, the USA, supports the state of Israel, we always have and always will (at least as soon as we get rid of the Obama regime). Israel is a ally – a friend – a cohort.
    Our military has righteously fought and killed many muslims terrorist – which is a good thing! If “women and children” are in the path, so be it. THIS IS WAR, not kindergarten play. If muslims are such barbarians and murderers, who are incapable of living in a civilized society — then they need to stay in the useless waste lands of the word and LEAVE the rest of civilized society alone. Don’t attack our country, our embassies, our people — or they will be rightfully and correctly killed.
    Middle east muslim can cry their pathetic tears — they’ve brought more death and destruction to their OWN PEOPLE than any one else in the word!!!

    I don’t know why you have such a difficult time understanding: for 1, I don’t care what “all” Americans think; all I need know is the majority are for fighting evil and defending America and American interest. Secondly, the “slaughter” is coming from islamic barbarians, who butch they’re own families, rape their woman, send their children out to blow themselves up, etc. The more of these sorts of muslims that are killed in military warfare, the better off the world will be. Any civilized person can understand that simple concept.

"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free."
