Reader comment on item: The Palestinian Authority Celebrates Terrorists Who Killed Israelis
in response to reader comment: your title Palestinian, Terrorism; my title: the reason Israel is still not taking initiative to attack the enemy

Submitted by Ilene Richman (United States), May 8, 2010 at 20:37

In WWII, our country won two wars: defeated Germany & Japan-in 4 years. Now, we are fighting Arab countries, Iraq, Afghanastan. Iraq was a Bush war-for no reason. Afghanastan was the war that should have been fought and won very quickly. The Al Qaeda attacked the US on Sept. 11, 2001. The US knew exactly where these terrorists are located, on the Pakastini-Afghanastan border, not in Iraq. We sent young men and women to die in Iraq-for no reason and to continuously fight a never ending war in Afghanastan . Germany & Japan were defeated by bombing these countries into submissionin four years .The same should have happened in Afghanastan. However, Bush and Obama do not fight to win a war. Gen. Petraues senselessly states he is using a "surge strategy". We do not need any "surge strategies". We have to fight to win and save every American life-not use "surge strageties".

Then, Gen Patreaus has the gall to blame the Iraq & Afghanastan wars on Israel-words from Obama's mouth.Patreaus forgot that George H. Bush invaded Iraq to help out his buddies in Saudi Arabia and Kuwait. He forgot that George W. Bush invaded Iraq for no d--n reason. Iraq was a bulwark against Iran. George W. Bush did not concentrate on the enemy in Afghanastan. Our troops could have immediately destroyed Osama Bin Laden but Bush sent in Afghanasti mercaneries to kill him. Osama Bin Laden escaped due to this "strategy".

Now it is 9 years later, and we are toying with Afghanastan-dropping Predator bombs instead of destroying the enemy as we did in WWII. Iraq is a mess with Arabs killing Arabs. The US and the world are afraid of the Moslems. Instead of being strong, we are weak and pick away at the enemy by "strategies". We had a great strategy with Eisenhower and MacArthur-simple-destroy the enemy. Patreaus should resign (1) a general has to win a war with strength, not with weakness (2) blames Israel for Iraq and Afghanastan. Obama is going down as the weakest president ever. He defends our enemies and blames our allies as UK, France, Poland, Czech. The enemy is laughing at us. The US has had four terrorist attacks in one year, ever since Obama is in office-the subway bomber, the Xmas pants bomber, the Times Square bomber, Fort Hood murderer. Obama gives the terrorists Miranda rights. Obama and Patreaus are on the side of the enemy by "strategies". They are allowing young American men and women be killed in Afghanastan and Iraq, instead of destroying the enemy. If we could find the German and Japanese enemies in four years, why can't we find the Moslem and terrorist enemies in nine years? I will tell you why. It is due to "strategies" instead of finishing off the enemy. So the true enemies are Obama and Petraeus who continue the picky une-pick one here, pick one there strategies. I can't wait until I see Obama out of office and will let everyone know what I think of Petraeus' comment about Israel. Both are Anti-Semites.
