And while I’m on the subject……

The latest argument against the President that’s currently in vogue is the idea that we didn’t do enough in Afganistan. That Iraq distracted from finishing the job in Afganistan. That because we changed our focus to Iraq so quickly, that the Taliban has been able to regain a foothold in Afganistan.
So tell me this. When was the last time a significant Al Queda operative was captured or killed in Afganistan?
Many people think that Osama is dead; those who think he’s still alive say he’s a lot of places, but not Afganistan. We bagged some of his cohorts in Pakistan, and bodybagged more than a few in Iraq. But we haven’t found any in Afganistan. Why is that? Perhaps because we satisfied our objective in Afganistan, and it is now only marginally important to the war on terror?
We went to Afganistan because it was a haven for terrorists and OSB. Now it no longer is. Sounds like Mission Accomplished to me.

Fatuous bumperstickers

Something that really bugs me are sanctimonious prigs who cover their cars with left-wing bumperstickers. I saw one today that pious asked, “Who would Jesus bomb?”
What a stupid friggin’ question. Why on earth would Jesus use a bomb when he could just wipe out every living creature on the planet (except, of course, anyone he thought was righteous enough) with a flood?
Morale of the story: Don’t get all self-righteous and start throwing around stupid cliches unless you really consider what you are saying.
And while I’m on the subject, you might do will to consider what the Islamofacists believe their Allah requires of them. In their view, the question “Who would Allah bomb?” is easily answered: everyone and anyone, as long as it’s in Allah’s name.
In light of enemy’s mindset in this regard, Jesus just might do well to start packing some heat, if he cares for his flock.
