Pandering to Terrorists

33618The Winter Olympics in Sochi have barely begun but already there are threats of terrorism in the news.  Despite the fact that Bin Laden is still dead and the Obama administration has proclaimed the “War on Terror” to be over, it’s not quite as “over” as some would have us believe.

For some reason, the current administration would like to treat al Qaeda like a scruffy lap dog, handing out all kinds of treats.  They have to love us now, right?  We inform them of when we will pull our troops in and out of an area.  We have trained them for combat. We have even armed them at every opportunity.

Meanwhile, Russia has sealed up the Olympic Games area as tightly as humanly possible, while warning athletes not to openly wear clothing that sport USA logos.

Seems the lap dog is not so easily brought to heel.

If you remember the previous administration, President Bush said we would hunt down anyone who gave any aid or comfort to the enemy. He meant it. We did not hear a peep from terrorists as long as that statement stayed true.  Now, the Obama administration has decided to allow immigrants into America who have only provided “limited assistance” to our enemy.

We already have a huge issue with immigration on the table in the Congress and many argue that there are not enough jobs for citizens. Others argue that our neighbors to the South should be allowed to stay as they are already here.  I would imagine most would prefer those who have given no comfort or aid to our enemy to have the first opportunity for legal status.  If these immigrants who have shown prior aid for terrorists are allowed here, what stops them from giving more aid here on our soil?

The mainstream media glossed over a terror attempt on the power grid in central California. There is a good chance most heard little to nothing about it.  A 52-minute sniper attack occurred in an electric facility there recently.

There are two schools of thought on this event; the FBI leans toward an isolated event, but other experts feel that is a terror dress rehearsal of sorts.

What if it had been grander in scale? Our society is now dependent on electricity to function. What kind of crisis would occur if something like this attack had been successful?

The current administration needs to realize that nothing has changed in the War on Terror since 9/11/2001.   The enemy has just better adapted their methods to the recent clumsy attempts of our reactionary foreign policy.

I will stand with the cowboy from Crawford, Texas. No aid or comfort to the enemy!
