For those who would like a shock, brace yourselves.. I COMPLETELY support a decision made by either Obama himself or his administration.. I support the decision relative to “American citizen” Anwar al-Awlaki, a nice Irish kid from New Mexico.. This decision involves the premature ending of this wretched life. Do it, I am on board and behind you 100 percent.
In “U.S. Decision to Approve Killing of Cleric Causes Unease” (NY Times) we read that the administration has decided to place this “American citizen” on the CIA kill list.. Now, enter from stage left, the lawyers/liars..
The puling begins anew, “the notion that the government can, in effect, execute one of its own citizens far from a combat zone with no judicial process, makes some legal authorities deeply uneasy..” For starters, the fact that “legal authorities” would need to be involved makes ME “deeply uneasy”.
One of the crucial elements within that last missive was the concept that such “exterminations” can ONLY be made ON a “combat zone”. It is bad enough when one lone imbecile, sufficiently stuffed with the nonsensical ramblings of “clerics” like al-Awlaki, inordinately intoxicated with the hilarious myth that seventy-two virgins await them as a reward for their “heroic deed”, the “lawyers” are forgetting a crucial point. The “enemy”, those who understand the terrorist playbook as it is explained to them by the al-Awlaki’s, have themselves “declared war” upon the civilized and the battlefield is right here and right now. This is NO “traditional war” from the perspective of either the Mooselim combatants or the innocent victims. The “battlefield” is where ever they are.
Here is the stumbling block that the liberals have laid for themselves. Back in the halcyon days after September 11th, the liberals decided for purely political purposes that the “War on Terrorism” was based upon “Islamophobia” which was reinforced the liberal’s reflexive position that ALL wars are bad.. That is certainly an easier argument to emotionally and tearfully make from the other side of the fence at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.. Now they are “in charge” and the idea of a demanding a “traditional war” to be fought by untraditional combatants is the daily reality for the liberals. Ignore it at your peril.. Actually, ignore it at OUR peril..
The unrealistic demands that the liberals have made for years as the “political outsiders” are now coming home to roost as they have no choice but to be a part of an “untraditional war” that the liberal base and the liberal lawyers are still clamoring to be retrofitted to a “traditional war” status.. A big part of that is the patented liberal childish notion that ANY war can be fought with subpoenas and “judicial reviews”.. Maybe if the liberals had decided to get on board after September 11th as opposed to declaring war UPON the war on terrorism, they wouldn’t find themselves hoist by their own progressive petard..
Sounding off for the lawyers/liars is former CIA lawyer/liar Vicki Divoll. “Congress has protected Awlaki’s phone calls but it has not provided any protections for his life..” Liberal mistake number one: “protecting” the phone calls of a terrorist. Please refer to the “hoist by their own petard” mentioned above.. It is difficult to stop terrorism when the liberals place the “rights” of the wrong ABOVE the rights of those to exist in peace.
“The reported targeting of Awlaki ‘certainly raises the question of what rights a citizen has and what steps must be taken before he’s put on the list’”.. First off, the blatant “sexism” in the New York Times must be addressed here. Lately we have seen that when it comes to being part of the terrorist network, your “sex” isn’t anywhere NEAR as important as your “religious beliefs”. The burka wearing bovines have been out there doing their dirty duty as well. Liberal primer: when was the last “terrorist” incident where the perpetrator was heard hollering, “Jesus is Lord!” before he decided to light either his shoe, his underwear or his SUV afire..
Being “targeted” by one of these drones appears to be a wonderful way to dispose of terrorists. “The missiles have killed more than 5500 militants (terrorists) since 2008, and a few dozen nearby civilians.. Oops.. This is the ultimate reinforcement of the theory that you are judged by the company you keep and when you are in the company of someone with twelve hyphens in their name, don’t stand too close..
The Times just can’t get it right. “He (Awlaki) is located far from hostilities in Afghanistan and Pakistan”. So? He is HERE in AMERICA and this is where the terrorists have declared their “war”. Regardless of his “location”, regardless of his “citizenship”, he should have drone with his hyphenated name upon it. At a press conference with Jacques Chirac in November of 2001, George Bush said, “you are either with us or against us in the fight against terror..” Moral absolutism is hard for the liberals to understand when they haven’t any of those mysterious “morals” to reference..
When intelligence identifies a terrorist, the liberals want subpoenas, meetings, judicial reviews, dissemination of the information to the “impartial” press, roundtable discussions with Czars and Secretaries, etc., etc,.. Meanwhile, Mohammed al- Mohammed al- Mohammed al-Gore has sufficient time to change locations and continue with HIS war on America. The THREE legitimate chances to eliminate Bin Laden that were gifted to Bill Clinton were met with these same liberal “tactics” of tear squeezing and hand wringing which afforded the opportunity for ol’ Spinach Chin to continue with HIS war on America.
“Most significantly, he is an American, born in New Mexico..” So? Certain actions regardless of where your mail goes, entitles you to a little “droning”. The article constantly references this “traditional war” business. When the liberals start talking about “traditional war”, it is nothing more than liberalspeak for “it must be perfect”. No collateral damage whatsoever as they yearn to be able to recite this disclaimer at the Methadone clinic: “no innocents were harmed in the making of this war”.. If we applied the liberal’s nonsensical standards to the concept of “war”, today we would all be met with the following salutation on the telephone, “Please press one for German..”
Divoll does a bit more “droning” herself, as only a liberal “lawyer” can do.. “Some judicial process should be required before the government kills an American away from the traditional battlefield..” Which war had and more importantly HAS Manhattan, the Twin Towers, the Pentagon and a field in Pennsylvania as the “traditional battlefields”? Which war has government buildings and innocent American citizens on American soil as the “traditional battlefield”? The “untraditional” terrorist war on America.
Just so that I won’t be considered a complete and reprehensible “Islamophobe”, Timothy McVeigh and Ted Kaczynski were both “terrorists”. However, the REALITY is that today’s “terrorist” is almost exclusively motivated by those like al-Awlaki who are using one particular text as their justification, regardless of what the terrorist’s passport says or where his magazine subscriptions end up..
Divoll does it again, “In addition, she offered a practical argument for a review outside the executive branch: avoiding mistakes.” Lawyers/liars like Divoll will NEVER acknowledge the “mistake” that their over-analyzing of the legitimacy of the terrorists leads to, the fact that they have awarded the bearded baboons (both male and female..) sufficient time to plan and to carry out their morbid “missions”. Again, please refer to the triple mistakes made in “over-analyzing” Bin Laden by the Clintonistas.. ANOTHER former CIA lawyer/liar John Radsen said “every drone strike should be subject to rigorous internal checks to be ‘sure beyond a reasonable doubt’”.. The liberal “standard of perfection” can NEVER be attained. Before these imbecile lawyers are done writing their writs, someone else will unfortunately be writing another obituary for another thousand or so innocent Americans who were victimized by what should have been another case of the CIA “taking out the trash..”
The liberals go from the sublime to the ridiculous. “Beyond the legal debate is the question of whether killing Awlaki would be a good idea..” Mooselim “activists and scholars say it would accord him martyr status and amplify his violent message..” The LOGICAL option, according to the Mooselim “activists and scholars” and their liberal enablers would be for him to be left alive so that he can continue to “amplify his violent message” anyway.. The liberal answer? Arrest the terrorist, place him in jail where the taxpayer will have to pay scads of attorneys to both defend and prosecute him. Then they will support him for life in prison and the leftists will allow him to continue his “violent message” in order to afford him his “Constitutional right to free speech.” Putting Hitler in jail along with his “violent message” after the Beer Hall Putsch of November 1923 CERTAINLY was a better option rather than say, lopping his fool head off.. My answer to this vexing liberal dilemma? One well placed MQ-9 Reaper. Cost: $10.5 million. My tax dollars WELL spent..
A counterterrorism official said, “what would you do-cover your ears and wait for a truly devastating explosion in Times Square?” Sir or Madame, this is exactly how the liberals “fight” their “traditional war” upon the war on terror..
