Yesterday, on the eleventh anniversary of the last blatant act of war against the United States, the American ambassador to Libya and three members of his staff were killed, and our consulate in that sandbox burned down. In Egypt, our embassy’s walls were scaled by Islamofascists who took down the American flag, set it on fire, and replaced it with–NOT a “black Islamic banner,” as the Make Believe Media insists on describing it–but the flag of al-Qaeda.
So much for the “Arab Spring.” Here comes the “Islamist Winter.”
The comparison to Iran circa 1979 is too bloody obvious to be ignored.
This is what the Obama administration’s “lead from behind” theory of foreign policy, in response to the upheaval in the Middle East, has delivered to America’s doorstep.
The blithering idiots on DNC cable outlet MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” are placing blame on some obscure media whore of a preacher, who supposedly has a hand in some obscure amateur flick, as I begin writing this. That is utter bullshit.
This had nothing to do with some idiotic YouTube flick that nobody knew existed before yesterday. That was just a handy excuse. This was a coordinated attack against the United States. Any made-up reason would have sufficed.
You think they picked the date to launch these attacks out of a hat?
Of course, the assholes on “Morning Joe” (and I’m sure many, many witless apologists as the day wears on) were just following our own State Department’s lead:
The Embassy of the United States in Cairo condemns the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims – as we condemn efforts to offend believers of all religions. Today, the 11th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the United States, Americans are honoring our patriots and those who serve our nation as the fitting response to the enemies of democracy. Respect for religious beliefs is a cornerstone of American democracy. We firmly reject the actions by those who abuse the universal right of free speech to hurt the religious beliefs of others. [emphasis mine]
Savvy that? Let me translate: “We’re sorry America allows people to say whatever they want about your bestest dude in the history of the world. We understand you’re feeling all butt-hurt over this, and offer our sincerest condolences.”
What was left unsaid: “Please, don’t behead me!”
It’s a disgusting lie, but typical of this administration. They don’t give a damn if someone similarly “offends” Christians or Jews, something that is a regular occasion across the globe (and a cornerstone of many of the Democrat Party’s most ardent supporters here at home–no matter what last-minute changes were forced into the Party’s platform).
They don’t give a damn if you hurl the most vile invective imaginable at those religious groups, because they won’t take to the streets and start burning buildings and lopping off heads, to show their “Umbrage!” at the slightest perceived slight.
Also typical of this feckless Chicago crew, they immediately attempted to throw the Egyptian embassy’s staff under the proverbial bus:
“The statement by Embassy Cairo was not cleared by Washington and does not reflect the views of the United States government,” an administration official told POLITICO.
Sorry, but that shit won’t work this time, oh Unicorn King. This ain’t your former pastor, or your “typical white” grandmamma we are talking about this time. These are your administration’s representatives in Egypt; there’s no way in hell you can distance yourself from this one, Lightbringer.
The Islamists sized you up when you made that Cairo speech back in 2009, and–as your only foreign policy “victory” once opined–they recognized you as a weak horse, more concerned with being ‘popular’ in the Muslim world than being respected… you now have indisputable evidence that your pandering platitudes has achieved neither good will nor respect among the animals who first declared war on the U.S. back in 1979, and repeated the call in 1996.
They watched you turn your back on allies such as Poland, in your ridiculous attempt to “reset” relations with Putin. They heard your decision that part of NASA’s mission under your watch would be to make Muslims “feel good” while leaving our manned space program so crippled that we have to pay the Russians to get to the International Space Station for the foreseeable future.
They watched you abandon Mubarak, and for reasons entirely unclear to this day, ignore your own Congress (and laws) and supply American air power to help topple Gaddafi, in what can only be considered a fucking delusion: that what would follow his fall would somehow be better for America than what was there before.
And they watch you continuously treat Israel’s Prime Minister like a red-headed step kid, all in the guise of your administration’s new, improved, “smart diplomacy.”
Your supporters will say, “Hey, he killed bin Laden!” That’s not foreign policy, that’s just common sense; the opportunity was there, and anyone sitting in the Oval Office would have made the same call. After handing over $1.3 billion in aid to the new Egyptian government, they returned the favor by standing aside and letting their minions assault our embassy, following their intelligence chief having a sit-down with the head of the Iranian spy service.
Coincidence? I think not.
With you, you narcissistic bitch, it’s always about you; well, this one I s all yours….
