Dumbth: Liberals and the War on Terror
“See – we have a problem,” Matthews said. “How do we know when someone like Hasan is going to make his move and do we know he’s an Islamist until he’s made his move? He makes a phone call or whatever, according to Reuters right now. Apparently he tried to contact al Qaeda. Is that the point at which you say, ‘This guy is dangerous?’ That’s not a crime to call up al Qaeda, is it? Is it? I mean, where do you stop the guy?”

YES it is a crime to all a TERRORIST ORGANIZATION.
Reason number #102938 I don’t miss college is people like Wolf and Mathews. They love lefty politics and see the world in Marx colored glasses.
“While the Obamas host a Halloween Party outside the White House for military families, peace activists will also don costumes and call on Obama to oppose the surge in Afghanistan and end the wars… The activists will be dressed as zombie soldiers, ghosts of war victims, a monstrous Obama’s Afghanistein and more.

Have these people no shame? No decency? At long last, someone needs to ask these idiots “Have you no shame?”. FYI: Code Pink was/is a major donor to the Democratic Party.
20 years ago this week the Berlin Wall came down.
No mention of Ronald Regan, US forces in West Germany or the aid America gave to freedom.
The popular myth is that the wall kind of toppled over by itself, with a little push from people power. That of course ignores not only the prior 44 years of Cold War … interspersed with several hot ones that cost us tens of thousands of American lives … it also ignores the massive military buildup of the 1980s, the encouragement of liberation movements behind the Iron Curtain, the tough engagement with old-school Soviet leaders and, not least, the cordial engagement with a Soviet leader who realized it was time to throw in the towel. An atmosphere was finally created in which people felt like the could challenge the wretched, murdeorus regime with impunity, and they did.
Here’s Ross Douthat at NYT, who was not yet 10 when that happened, not only thinks the wall was shoved over by German flower children…
” Never has liberation come to so many people all at once — to Eastern Europe’s millions, released from decades of bondage; to the world, freed from the shadow of nuclear Armageddon; and to the democratic West, victorious after a century of ideological struggle.
Never has so great a revolution been accomplished so swiftly and so peacefully, by ordinary men and women rather than utopians with guns.”

And now we have Militant Islamic terror[tm], trying to kill us. Many in this country are in deep denial.
Former Navy SEAL Richard Marcinko, in his first book, criticized President Regan for seeing terrorism through the cold war. He felt it was more of chaos vs. order. I think it’s more good vs. evil. Terrorists are not the poor downtrodden masses or innocent people swept up in the war on terror. They are thugs and hatemongers pure and simple.
The Stazi killed many Germans, they funded the Red Brigades to kidnap and kill more. One President dared their soviet master to tare down the wall they hid behind.
Why can’t the left do the same today?
