Taking Back America!
This is an amateur photograph of the body of our former U.S. ambassador, Chris Stephens, to Libya, being dragged through the streets of Benghazi. Notice how respectfully our dead are treated by the Jihadists.
Next, we have some lovely video, courtesy of Memri, taken outside one of our embassies in an Islamic nation. Before you ask, this is not the American Embassy in Tehran circa 1979. It is our Embassy in Cairo from yesterday.
That Barack Obama was touted by anybody as being qualified, even when compared to, gasp, Sarah Palin, for the Presidency is a stinging indictment not just upon those who posited that now disproven theory, but upon the imbecilic members of the media who reported the false credentials without so much as a hint of curiosity. This foreign policy disaster is the direct result of the decisions made by the Obama White House and State Department. What's even more to the point is that it should come as a surprise to no one. This policy of projecting American weakness abroad and subordinating our strength to the vile and corrupt influences of the United Nations was after all, one of two Obama campaign promises that did not have an expiration date. (The other being his promise to destroy ability to produce electricity via coal.)
Nothing, in terms of our foreign policy arena, could be worse for America and Americans than the events of the last 4 years. What's worse than that, it does not appear that Barack Obama or Joe Biden have learned anything. The foreign policy agenda proffered by Team Zero going forward for a possible second term is, more of the same. More apologies to our enemies and more arm twisting for our allies. More snubs for the likes of Britain, Poland, and Israel, with more incentives for the Muslim Brotherhood to grab even more expansive bases of power through out the Middle East. I find it both laughable and sad that foreign policy is considered one of the Team Obama strengths for this year's Presidential Election. Laughable that anyone would think it, sad that our Press is reporting this in a serious non sarcastic manner.
Today, just as in 1979, laying siege to one of our embassies over seas is an act of war. Mitt Romney recognizes this, Sarah Palin recognized it in 2008, and most Americans today recognize it as well. This act was taken, and here is the key point, because the Jihadists do not take our President and his kumbayah school of foreign policy seriously, even slightly. Their calculation is that hand wringing and further apologies will be the only reaction to it, with the possibility of a cruise missile exploding by its lonesome in the desert somewhere.
For anyone who doubts that we are in a war with radical Islam, here they are, radical Islamists, once again in their own words telling us that we are.
As I am writing this, I could not help but notice that the President is even now explaining how Libyan forces tried to fight off the attack on our embassy there, and that this is not the fault of treating our enemies as respected long time friends. It should also be remembered that when our ambassador was taken somewhere safe and still living, by those very same Libyan allies who were fighting by our side, they were the ones who ratted out his position and ended up handing him over.
So, here it is, in its full banality, the video that was blamed for the newest violent temper tantrum occurring throughout all of North Africa. Warning, getting through this idiotic piece of, for lack of a better word, cinematography, may prove to be a difficult endeavor. I personally only lasted 6 minutes.
