This is from someone who wants to be Commander-in-Chief:
“I am absolutely committed to ending the war.” “I will call my Joint Chiefs of Staff in and give them a new assignment and that is to end the war.”
How about you stay behind after school and clap erasers, Obama?
As Dean Barnett at The Weekly Standard explains:
In truth, the Joint Chiefs are not part of the chain of command. Indeed, they are specifically by statute not part of the chain of command but instead serve solely in an advisory capacity to the president.
In other words, they are part of a President’s advisory staff; not battlefield commanders or part of the execution of battlefield doctrine.
Just eight days after the attack Obama showed his stupidity with regard to threats against America:
The essence of this tragedy, it seems to me, derives from a fundamental absence of empathy on the part of the attackers: an inability to imagine, or connect with, the humanity and suffering of others. Such a failure of empathy, such numbness to the pain of a child or the desperation of a parent, is not innate; nor, history tells us, is it unique to a particular culture, religion, or ethnicity. It may find expression in a particular brand of violence, and may be channeled by particular demagogues or fanatics. Most often, though, it grows out of a climate of poverty and ignorance, helplessness and despair. We will have to make sure, despite our rage, that any U.S. military action takes into account the lives of innocent civilians abroad. We will have to be unwavering in opposing bigotry or discrimination directed against neighbors and friends of Middle Eastern descent. Finally, we will have to devote far more attention to the monumental task of raising the hopes and prospects of embittered children across the globe—children not just in the Middle East, but also in Africa, Asia, Latin America, Eastern Europe and within our own shores.”
Let’s see…we were attacked by Islamic thugs supported by a world-wide network, and all Obama is concerned about, is the ‘innocent’ people killed in war. Not one to dwell on the innocent people slaughtered on 9/11, he prefers to focus on our ‘image’ abroad and what the world thinks of us.
I have absolutely no empathy for a perverted, warped religion that is, at its very core, vile and oppressive in nature. The practitioners of Islam are following exactly what is proscribed in the Koran. We should not only take them out, but destroy any vestiges of the ‘religion’ itself. They have never, and will never worship peacefully, nor will they stop subjecting their own people (women) and the rest of the world to Islam’s brutality.
Obama is as vacuous on chain of command, military tactics, and strategy, as he is in his approach to world-wide threats.
At least, he’s consistent.
