As our esteemed Logistics Monster always says, AYFKM????!, while I am more prone to utter the simpler, three word invective, Whiskey Tango Foxtrot. David Horowitz’s NewsReal’s Jeff Hespeth, writing of the New York Times piece by the same name, rightfully asks, Is the Obama Administration courting the Taliban?
Excuse me, folks, but…DO THESE PEOPLE LOOK LIKE SOMEONE WITH WHOM YOU or any sane person WOULD WANT TO DO BUSINESS??!
Has this man ever heard of Taqiya? Is he at all aware that Islam MANDATES that ALL agreements and contracts made with *The Infidel* be broken within SEVEN YEARS?? Doesn’t he know that criticizing Islam is dangerous to your health?? Just ask Dutch filmmaker Theo van Gogh, Salmon Rushdie, Geert Wilders or Kurt Westergaard, whose capitol crime was drawing a cartoon in a Danish newspaper. In fact, it is clear to everyone who breathes that these individuals do NOT play well with others. In fact, they do not play at all, and their primary activity of choice is killing everyone other than themselves by inflicting as much pain and suffering as possible upon their victims before their final dispatch. And–dare I wax rhetorical, cynical and sarcastic–does Mr. Gates have ANY idea with whom we are dealing here? For I daresay the current Resident in the White House, his minions and yes, his Imams certainly do.
In the NY Times article by Elizabeth Bumiller, Gates is quoted as saying–and I am NOT kidding–
The United States recognizes that the Taliban are now part of the political fabric of Afghanistan, Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates said here on Friday, but the group” must be prepared to play a legitimate role before it can reconcile with the Afghan government.”
That means, Mr. Gates said, that the Taliban must participate in elections, not oppose education and not assassinate local officials.
On Friday, he listed conditions that the Taliban must meet for Afghan political acceptance. OMGROTFLMFAO. Apparently Mr. Gates does not subscribe to the cardinal rule of War: KNOW THINE OPPONENT; apparently, he has forgotten that these are the people who thrive in blowing people into bits with IEDs, cutting off the heads of those with whom they disagree and maiming, beating and killing women. He apparently has conveniently forgotten the HUGE and seemingly endless sacrifices of our military, given freely and honorably in the fight against terrorists and their agenda. Those who died in the sand and those whose lives are forever changed by their memories deserve a great deal more than a Secretary of Defense who thinks we should play nicely with the Taliban, an entity who does not play nicely with ANYONE and never will.
But don’t take my word for it. Ask Sgt. Sanchez, Lance Cpls. Hall, Burrows, Posey, Schimmel, Stroud, & Damas, Lt. Behenna, Lt. Col. Chessani, Pfc. Corey Clagett, Cpl. Vila, Sgts. Hatley, Leahy, Hutchins, Navy SEALS SO-2s Matthew McCabe & Jonathan Keefe, SO-1 Julio Huertas, and the thousands of others whose lives were shortened or altered irretrievably.
To top it off, and add insult to injury not to mention underline the insanity of Mr. Gates’s proposal, indeed,
“Nobody from the Taliban side is ready to make any kind of deal,” Zabihullah Mujahid, a spokesman for the Taliban, said in an interview. “The world community and the international forces are trying to buy the Taliban, and that is why we are showing that we are not for sale.”
HELLO? MR. GATES? EARTH TO SPACE, COME IN, MR. GATES…Whiskey Tango Foxtrot…AYFKM…Tango Mike Mike.
