Ask Britain how trying appeasement worked out with Hitler. Ask the Israelis how appeasement worked out with Hamas, or the Syrians. Ask the Marines how appeasement worked out in the initial stages of Fallujah.
All appeasement does is give your enemies more time to arm and equip. Giving the Shariaists of the world what they want only emboldens them to demand more. Trying to make friends with militant Islamicists does two things: 1) Convinces them that you are an idiot, and 2) Proves them right.
There can be no “dialogue” with these people. They are not interested in rational discourse. The are interested only in subjugation, the rule of Sharia, and the expansion of Islam to every corner of the globe, through influence, coercion, deceipt, or force of arms.
And if you haven’t figured this out, you ain’t been listening. To them. To their own rhetoric.
I simply do not understand people who can listen to the fervent, frothing intensity of these virulent, caustic leaders of Islam who freely and unabashedly state that they want nothing less than the deaths of those who refuse to follow Islam, the destruction of countries who refuse to bow to their demands…people who then turn around and propose with naivete’ and incredulity, “Well, they can’t really MEAN that. It’s just because they don’t understand us. If we try really hard to be friends, to make nice, well, I’m sure we can make them see the light.”
Folks, the only light that will help Islamic fasicsts “understand” the realities of a 21st century world is the flash just before the boom. Remember, these are people who profess to hate technology so much that they refuse to develop any themselves…and yet have no compunctions about selling heroin to buy weapons technology from countries they one day hope to destroy.
These….THESE are the people with whom Pres. Obama want’s to “open a dialogue?!” In this uncertain day and age, with the influence of a barabaric and reactionary islamic fundamentalism gaining increasing sway throughout large swaths of Europe, Asia, the pacific rim, and even the United States, the willful ignorance, the deluded naivete, and the misguided idealism of the current administration towards the threats we, as a country, face from our enemies, gives Barack Obama the potential to be the single most damaging President this country has endured in our history.
Between his fiscal irresponsiblity, his rampant expansion of government powers, his embracing of bellicose antagonists as “respected” world leaders, and his fumbling inability to appoint a cabinet not plagued by controversy and scandal, one has to wonder what else is in store for us?
Hope and Change, eh?
Ooooh. Looky Looky. Geert Wilders agrees with me. I must be, like, famous our smart or something.
