Political Stupidity

Reader comment on item: Capturing Osama

Submitted by JimS (United States), Mar 9, 2004 at 12:23

I agree with this article completely. When I was 6 years old and in 1st grade, in a school taught by nuns, our morning prayers included "God protect us from Islamism". As soon as our politicians start including this phrase in their morning prayers and in their everyday actions, we will begin to make some progress in the war on terrorism. Muslims are not the enemy. Islamism is the enemy. You cannot kill an idea or an idealogy.

Regarding John Kerry's condemnation of President Bush, when are Kerry's ardent followers going to begin talking about President Clinton's refusal to accept Osama when he was offered to him on a platter during his administration. What I am hearing is a rehearsed ranting that whatever is done by government is wrong, unless it is done by a Democrat. I have yet to hear Kerry offer any solutions. Only condemnations. Just like his actions during the Vietnam way. Just imagine having Jane Fonda as Vice President, one heartbeat away from running this nation. I guarantee that the US would have an ideological foreign policy then that would make all Americans ashamed.
