Barack Hussein Obama, Hussein, And Al-QeidaTopics: Political News and commentaries
IBD has it that in blaming America first for al-Qaida in Iraq's presence, Barack "Hussein" (I've no reason to be intimidated by the Left so as to be so ridiculously PC that I don't use his middle name any damned time I want to) Obama shows the difference between being glib and being articulate and just why John McCain should be president of the United States:
[...] It was as if Neville Chamberlain was blaming World War II on Winston Churchill, or if someone had claimed Hitler wouldn't have invaded France if the British hadn't put their expeditionary force there first.More ...
In an incredible long-distance exchange with McCain, the presumptive GOP nominee for president, Sen. Obama first states that he would send soldiers back to Iraq "if al-Qaida is forming a base in Iraq."
When McCain responded that "al-Qaida in Iraq" has that name because it is already there, Obama replied that there was "no such thing as al-Qaida in Iraq until George Bush and John McCain decided to invade Iraq."
Slick Willie, meet slicker Barack, who is blissfully unaware that terrorists hate us for what we are, not what we do.
There are many reasons why we liberated Iraq, and John McCain whispering in George Bush's ear was not one of them. We did not "invade" Iraq. We went in under authority of U.N. Resolution 1441, which gave Saddam Hussein a "final opportunity" to give a full accounting of what happened to the WMD that the mass murderer used against his neighbors and own people, or there would be "serious consequences." Saddam didn't, and there were.
We're sure Obama would rather have used some "aggressive personal diplomacy," as he so glibly puts it, on Saddam. His policy would be to bomb an ally such as Pakistan while talking to a soon-to-be nuclear adversary such as Iran.
And as long as Obama's borrowing phraseology from other politicians, we're surprised he hasn't paraphrased the words of the late William Borah, whom he rivals in naivete.
On hearing of the Nazi invasion of Poland in 1939, the Idaho senator lamented: "Lord, if only I could have talked with Hitler, all this might have been avoided."
Ah, if only Barack had been able to talk with Saddam . . .
