ISIS Beheads American

Posted by madjillmom on August 19, 2014

While we are all obsessing over the situation/tragedy of Ferguson, Missouri, ISIS/ISIL has just beheaded an American journalist. They are threatening to behead another. They are barbarians. Ignore them at our peril. Both journalists were abducted in Syria.

Optimists and Diplomats

Posted by madjillmom on September 13, 2012

I have read some stuff about the murdered Ambassador. First, he was in the Peace Corps. I wonder how many people in the Diplomatic Corps volunteered for the Peace Corps?  I am going to guess it is a pretty high percentage. The Secretary of State’s own book, “It Takes a Village” pushes this “together we can make a difference” kind of thought.  Who can be against that?  I guess I can.

I suppose Diplomats are an optimistic lot. They think talk can fix anything.  It can, but it has limits. Particularly when dealing with non-Western people. They come from the Peace Corps, with hands on experience in dealing with the third world.  Provide water wells, teach them to farm, inoculate against disease, learn their language, and they will love and respect you.

There has been much made of how respected this Ambassador Stevens was. He knew the language, he was very hands on. He made a wonderful video about how excited he was to help the Libyans make a new government. He was so optimistic. But was he a realist? Were his eyes open to the ugly underside of where he was? Why was he not at the secured Embassy in Tripoli on 9/11? Why weren’t all Embassies in Islamic countries locked down with extra security on Tuesday? Does everybody have rose-colored glasses from Obama to Biden to Hillary to Stevens?

I know that man was a husband and a father, and I do not like to speak ill of the dead. He apparently was an idealist, and I think this is one reason he is dead. No, it isn’t his fault, but it did play a part. I do not want to blame the victim. Strangely, this phrase usually refers to rape victims, and there is some concern that the Ambassador was raped before he was killed. Can we have a State Department with optimism and realism.  With Peace Corps dreams and pragmatic realism that sees Muslim extremism, Putin’s megalomania, the never-ending fount that feeds the third world with so little to show for it.

Recently, as Hillary has traveled, there have been several reports or her having things thrown at her or other gestures of disrespect. Isn’t this a tip-off to someone of how loved and respected we are. If the world doesn’t love Hillary and Obama, we are really in for some bad times.

Romney Shoots and Hits Target

Posted by madjillmom on September 12, 2012

Romney criticized the stupid initial response from the Diplomats in Egypt. He was right. Obama thought so to.  The initial statement should not have apologized to the Islamists.

Now Obama accuses Romney of shooting and then aiming. Here we go with the Romney is a Cowboy intent upon putting us into another war.  Yeah, Cowboy is exactly what I think when I study Romney. The Dems want to tell us Romney isn’t delicate enough to handle the Middle East. Maybe he just doesn’t like to see American pushed around, attacked by intolerant Islamist and Al-Qaeda. Maybe he is mad about that, like a lot of us are.

Speaking of shooting and then aiming. No Drama Obama, foreign policy expert Biden, and the smartest woman alive Hillary pushed Mubarak, the guy holding down the Islamists,  out of office, knowing that the Muslim Brotherhood had a huge leg up on taking over Egypt.  And that is what happened. Now, for a second day in a row, the Muslim Brotherhood is calling for protests outside the US Embassy in Egypt. Maybe Obama/Biden/Hillary should have aimed before they pushed Mubarak out and gave us the new Egypt, where now powerless women wear burkas, where ugly, bearded, stupid men have all the power, and where Christians and diplomats live in fear and are often killed.

Obama’s policies of apologize, appease, and Lead from Behind are not right for this country at this time.

Obama’s Apology Tour Continues In Egypt

Posted by madjillmom on September 11, 2012

Today, much of the “peaceful” Muslim world is getting all worked up over some video produced in the United States that slams Islam. So now, ugly bearded men who worship with hate are tearing down the US flag at our Embassy in Cairo, the home of the Arab Spring that Obama was so thrilled about. The Embassy in Libya is burning and an American has been killed. All because of a cartoon blog video, In answer to these attacks on American soil, the State Department started apologizing for our freedom of speech. Of course, this just makes them madder. Islamists are taking power from moderates all over the world. They hate us and everything we stand for. Our Embassies are at risk, and our military is at greater risk. Obama and Hillary’s answer, apologize for our freedoms.

Like K’hammer said. “Tell them all to go to hell.” Call that asshat Morsi and tell him he won’t know where or when, but we will get him if he doesn’t take action immediately.

Grow some balls and a spine. Ask Valerie Jarrett “Pretty please, let me stand up to these guys, huh?”

If you don’t get it, making nice with these backward idiots doesn’t make them like us. They hate us. They think there are only two good kinds of infidels, converted or dead. They want us to live the way they live. Stupidly. If you think Obama and Hillary use smart diplomacy, why don’t you get a job in an Embassy in the Middle East.

Please remember, these are two new 9/11 attacks. What will Obama do? Campaign.
