Dhimmi Alert: 'Edwards Does Not Believe There Is A Global War On Terror'Topics: Political News and commentaries
Politico has a post up on "quite a big deal that most of us totally missed" in the 'Dhimmicrats' (my word not his) debate:
John Edwards doesn't believe there's a "global war on terror," at least not in the simple-show-of-hands sense.More here ...
This is something a lot of Democrats say privately -- and something mainstream pols everywhere else in the world say publicly -- but it contests a Bush administration premise in a way very few American politicians have been comfortable in the last five and a half years.
Giuliani's warning is sounding more and more on target - Democrats do not understand the full nature and scope of the terrorist war against us:
[...] "I listen a little to the Democrats and if one of them gets elected, we are going on defense," Giuliani continued. "We will wave the white flag on Iraq. We will cut back on the Patriot Act, electronic surveillance, interrogation and we will be back to our pre-Sept. 11 attitude of defense."More on Giuliani here.
... if a Democrat is elected president in 2008, America will be at risk for another terrorist attack on the scale of Sept. 11, 2001.
.... "This war ends when they stop coming here to kill us!" Giuliani said in his speech. "Never, ever again will this country ever be on defense waiting for [terrorists] to attack us if I have anything to say about it. And make no mistake, the Democrats want to put us back on defense!"
While I am surely not enamored with Republican lawmakers, any more than I am with their foolish, naive, "politics before country" Democratic counterparts, the very idea of a Democrat going to the Whitehouse in 08 scares the hell out of me. Both parties have proven inept, but when it comes to defense, the Dems have in the past and even more so now, proven themselves to be down right scary. We are in a fight for the life of our nation, right now, while Edwards and his ilk, virtually the entire Democratic party, actually believes we are in a Kumbaya-fest.

Of course Edwards doesn't believe there is a "War on Terror" - warmongering Bush and Cheney made it up after 9/11 to have an excuse to invade Iraq and get us into this mess.
According to those on the left that think as Edwards does, terrorism is a law enforcement matter that doesn't warrant our overreacting and involving our military. A couple of FBI agents and a couple of New York cops waltzing-in with warrants into the Al-Qaeda strongholds in Afghanistan and arresting Bin Laden would have sufficed!
