Joy Reid, a left wing blogger, published a rant on “the ‘Neocon wackos’ who frequently invoke the anti-Democrat cudgel that "Democrats fail to understand the war on terror because they don't get that it's a war."
She takes on Daniel Pipes – then inadvertently agrees with him.
In the words of the less-than-great Daniel Pipes back in January 2004:
Nearly all the Democratic presidential contenders as well as other heavyweight Democrats have spoken out against the war on terror, preferring it to be a police action against terror.
Since 2001, the
U.S. has engaged in the neocons' long-desired "war" to end the threat of terror, fighting militarily on two major fronts:
Iraq, and on several smaller ones, with military actions in
Somalia, and by proxy, in
. The results? Terror attacks around the world haven't declined, they've increased.
There’s an inherent fallacy in this argument and shows the blind spot in Leftist thinking.
When you fight a WAR doesn’t the enemy create more foot soldiers to replace others that are killed? Didn’t
recruit more and more troops as the WAR progressed? But if you see this clash between the ideology of freedom and the ideology of tyranny as just a criminal issue than, of course, if crime increases your tactics are a failure. So since in the mind of the Left we are creating more criminals – i.e., terrorists – the struggle against radical Islam is a failure – right? But if we are fighting a WAR, it is not unreasonable to expect that more enemy troops will be recruited by the enemy for the conflict?
Figure it out Joy? So simple even a caveman can do it.
Oh, and by the way Joy, do you want to see who really are creating terrorist? Click here and get an education. These children at a kindergarten graduation in "Palestine" sure did.
So who’s really creating the terrorists?
