Two “Interesting” Developments

I can’t help wondering just what’s going through the Minds of the Media when they report that westerners, including Americans are going off to Islamofascist guerilla training compounds.

U.S. and European counterterrorism officials say a rising number of Western recruits — including Americans — are traveling to Afghanistan and Pakistan to attend paramilitary training camps. The flow of recruits has continued unabated, officials said, in spite of an intensified campaign over the past year by the CIA to eliminate al-Qaeda and Taliban commanders in drone missile attacks.

I’d bet cash money that 9 in 10 of these “westerners, including Americans”, are recent or offspring of recent immigrants from Muslim countries, like terorrists from the ’stans and the Mid-East are grouped by PC media as “Asians”.

Our good friends the Europeans, apparently easier to infiltrate in required numbers and afraid enough of the wrath of their own Muslim populations to give them plenty of deference laced elbow room, have been enjoying a goodly dose of Islam the last few years, the rioting in France, for example. Germany? Well…

European security officials have warned for many years of the threat posed by homegrown radicals who have gone to Afghanistan and Pakistan to wage jihad. Officials in some countries, such as Britain, said they have successfully cracked down on the number of would-be fighters going to South Asia. But others, such as Germany, are seeing a significant increase and struggling to contain it.

In the past, such volunteers were largely self-motivated and had to find their own way to South Asia. Today, however, al-Qaeda and its affiliates have developed extensive recruiting networks with agents on the ground in Europe, counterterrorism officials said. The agents provide guidance, money, travel routes and even letters of recommendation so the recruits can join up more easily.

In a recent report, the Dutch General Intelligence and Security Service said there were a “growing number of indications” that more Europeans were attending camps in the border region between Afghanistan and Pakistan.

The price, I’d say, of political correctness in the face of pure evil.

Moving right along.

Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. dismissed recent attacks by predecessor Dick Cheney over President Obama’s handling of the war in Afghanistan with a “who cares,” calling Mr. Cheney “absolutely wrong” to assert that the new administration was “dithering” in setting a fresh course for the conflict.

“I think that is absolutely wrong,” the vice president said of Mr. Cheney’s criticism. “I think what the administration is doing is exactly what we said it would do, and what I think it warrants doing. And that is making an informed judgment based upon circumstances that have changed … to come up with a sustainable policy that has more than one dimension.”

I don’t know, “dithering” sounds like an applicable description to me.

The vice president offered his most extensive comments to date about the White House’s internal deliberations over the Afghan conflict, saying that “to fail to sit back and reassess where we are, I think, would be absolutely imprudent.”

Good one. Just biden your time, huh, Mr. Veep?

Do you love having a bunch of people at the helm of our country who have no gameplan, no clue, not even a guess as to what to do about anything, other than to flounder in private and then try to cover up their incompetence with a lot of baseless doubletalk?

Well, if you do, welcome to the Obama Era.

    More madness!

    Always On Watch,

    O should have been elected president of the Gaza Strip or someplace like that, definitely not President of the United States.

    In fact, while he’s doling out the American taxpayer’s money to strengthen the enemy, the home front is another story:

    Welcome to the UK situation - ever since Blair took over we have had all the “New Speak” and no substance. Labour have never had a game plan other than to turn the UK into a PC Soviet State.

    Gray Monk,

    There is actually a conservative majority in the United States, which is at the root of a mystery for me, that being why leftists still get elected in quantities that allow them to embed so much damage to the nation as a whole.

    It gets worse.

    I was reading something about how Christopher Monckton was looking at that upcoming stealth conference, the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change and reading it as purely a move toward a one world government.

    I can see where he’s coming from. The “Climate Change” farce is the first issue the lefties have found that they can use to unite their fellows all over the world.
