McCain Wins One for the Terrorists!
Written by JB Williams
Guardian reads “The White House bowed
to international and congressional pressure on Thursday and abandoned its
opposition to Senate legislation prohibiting the use of cruel, inhuman or
degrading interrogation methods of detainees in US custody around the world.”
"We've sent a message to the world that the United
States is not like the terrorists," Senator McCain said,
sitting next to the president in the Oval Office on Thursday. "This will help us enormously in winning the hearts
and minds of the people throughout the world in winning the war on terror."
Really - How?
Clearly focused more on
the political PR war than the real war against international terrorism itself,
McCain and Co. have pressured the Bush administration into sending a clear
message to terrorists everywhere, on behalf of the temporarily free world.
That message? Fear not Mr. & Mrs. Terrorist… No matter how
deadly your intentions, how demented your methods, how deranged your deplorable
acts of inhumane terror, there is a limit
to how far we will go to defeat you. We will not engage in offensive behavior
to foil your plans. We will not treat you as you have and will continue
treating us. We are better than that and we are willing to concede the war on
terror, in order to win the PR battle at home.
Now, let me point out two
very important pieces of information that have clearly eluded Mr. McCain and
the anti-war left, including the anti-American so-called mainstream media.
Most of the free
world is already on our side in the war on terror. Only those who prefer
tyranny in their own lands, like Iran,
Syria and Saudi
Arabia, or hardened socialist - pacifist
nations caught taking oil bribes from the Hussein regime, stand opposed as it
is. I don’t know about you, but friends like these, I don’t need.
Agreeing to not
aggressively interrogate terror operatives won’t buy us any favor with
those who have opposed the liberation and democratization of Iraq
This is not a sign of unity with those who have opposed these actions, but
rather a sign of weakness in the nation responsible for liberating over 50
million of the world’s most brutally oppressed people and nothing more.
Let’s discuss this
in more personal terms, shall we? Let’s say it’s your immediate
family in danger, kidnapped and held hostage by unknown terrorists in an
undisclosed location. You have one of the captors tied up in your kitchen chair
when John McCain walks in with his piece of legislation to inform your captive
that if he chooses not to tell you where your children are, he could go to
jail, but no harm will otherwise come to him. He will not be offended in any
way by any inhumane effort to extract information concerning the whereabouts of
your loved ones…
a) What are the chances
your guest will answer any questions now? b) Has John McCain just helped you
find your loved ones, or did he just issue their death certificate?
I don’t know about
you, but if you had my family hostage, everything in your world would be in
grave danger until I find them, and I don’t give two hoots how John
McCain or anyone else feels about it… You can’t begin to imagine
what I am willing to do to save my family and you gave up any right to humane
treatment the second you took my family from the safety of my home.
Now, on a much larger
scale… You have proven yourself willing to fly loaded commercial
airliners into the center of our financial district, our national security
headquarters and our nation’s capitol, killing 3000 innocent civilians in
a matter of minutes causing untold damage to our nation. You have beheaded countless
hostages as they begged for their lives, blown up innocent civilians, mostly
women and children, in multiple nations around the globe of all social, ethnic
and religious cultures including your own.
You have strapped bombs
to the chests of your own women and children and sent them into pizza parlors
and shopping malls to die for your jihad. In short, you have demonstrated over
and over, that there is nothing you are not willing to do to pursue your
perverted agenda for the world. The last thing I want to tell you is that there
is any limit at all to what I will do to destroy you and your agenda.
If asking you nicely
doesn’t work, I will ask you not so nicely. If that doesn’t work,
you will soon begin to wish you could meet your maker much sooner than I will
allow. If need be, once convinced that you are not coming around to a more
peaceful vision for our coexistence, I will turn your entire country into a
parking lot, stick an American flag in your sand and pump free oil to America
until your land collapses from the void left in your part of the earth.
In other words, since you
have demonstrated that you are willing to do the most unthinkable of acts in pursuit
of your agenda, which happens to include my demise, you had better understand
that you have just written and signed your own death warrant… The only
hope you have of saving yourself is talking to me, fast…
I am a peaceful man by
nature, never looking for a fight, preferring to avoid one whenever possible.
However, once confronted with the option of either being terrorized, eventually
murdered, and accepting your prehistoric Neanderthal existence in my world, or
bringing you to your knees, I will opt for the latter without a moment’s
hesitation and God willing, you won’t get the chance to strike first.
legislation amounts to a plea, offering to treat terrorists like good neighbors
in the hopes that those terrorists will reply in like kind. However, McCain
must not have been watching as U.S.
citizens were beheaded while they were peacefully begging for their lives. We
have Christian peace-activists being held captive by these people as we speak.
There is no indication what-so-ever that these terrorists desire peace or respect
peaceful means at all.
Protecting my family has
no limits. If I were President of the United
States, protecting and defending the
American people from another 9/11 or worse, would have no limits either,
particularly when faced with an unconventional enemy willing to do whatever it
takes to kill Americans and end our way of life.
I have sadly suspected
for some time that John McCain left his manhood in a Vietnam
prison camp. But the Bush administration knows better and they have fought long
and hard to defend this nation successfully, at the expense of popularity. Why
cow to this now?
If you think begging for
peace works, just watch our enemy beheading people as they are begging for
peace on any of a few videos available on the web. If you are comfortable with
protecting your family this way, go ahead. But don’t expect humane
treatment from me if you mess with my family. Not even if you mess with my
neighbors, because I will assume I’m next.
The American and
international press is presenting this McCain victory as some huge win for
peaceful nations around the world and a reigning in of the Gulag mentality alleged
in the Bush administration. Nothing could be further from the truth.
Imagine being Bin Laden
today reading "We've sent a message to
the world that the United States is not like the terrorists,"
Senator McCain said, sitting next to the president in the Oval Office on
Thursday. If still alive, Bin Laden is likely to die of laughter…
Maybe Bin Laden will
enjoy this invitation headlining Al Jazerra today, “Senate
votes against Patriot Act”, the Islamic extremist interpretation; - “America
opens for terrorist business again!”
These acts, along with
Democrats’ calls to “cut and run” from the war on terror, won’t
even win the PR war with peaceniks around the globe who won’t be happy
until they have given away every freedom and liberty in their ill conceived
pursuit of peace. Even if it did, winning that war would likely come at the
expense of the much more important war, the one we can not afford to lose.
What are these people
thinking? You plan to prevent the next 9/11 by telling terrorists they are safe
to not talk? How exactly?
I understand why people
who don’t like anything about America
support such an idea, but what about the rest of us? All for what - politics?
