Not All of America's Enemies Are Muslim

in response to reader comment: People who deny Radical Islamic Terrorism, including Gen. McMaster, undermine America

Submitted by M Tovey (United States), Feb 27, 2017 at 11:45

First, I understand why Sec McMaster was chosen, since, while it can be generally agreed radical Islamic terrorism is part of an all out assault on America for the reason that America was set out amongst all the nations for times just as these: but we need a seasoned eye that has seen all types of threats and his eyes have seen and continues to see that the threats against America are multiple and many, not just Muslims. Bush, standing on the still smoldering graveyard of the towers, was myopic in his quavering voice when he said those words, only to issue a retraction later.

By electing President Trump in a election that worked just exactly as the founders intended, not only has this nation been given a reprieve from the disastrous downward spiral that enemies foreign and abroad have been salivating over, but her destiny has been put on pause while the enemies domestic try ever so hard to disrupt the implementation of the revamped policies that President Trump has promised; the realization being not all of America's enemies are Muslim; some are neo-Stalinists. Sec McMaster has that sense and it is important not to lose that perspective.

To be sure, radical Islamic terrorists are the noisiest enemies that America faces today; even Thomas Jefferson had that confrontation. But the silent enemy that would still downsize the American military component in the face of a world intent on minimizing the American presence on the world scene would still allow running a trade deficit with the Orient in the tens of billions of AMERICAN dollars to run America out of money. Is that not a threat also?

In the final analysis, diversionary tactics are at play here and America needs a tested tactician to watch for the blind-side attack against the very foundation that the founders placed to protect our freedoms.
