What sort of moron believed that the Afghans, a people whose territory has always been delineated by the areas where external powers could no longer dictate events, could be "pacified"?
The last people to achieve something like this were the pre Alexander-the-Great Sumerians,or Persians, or Iranians as they're called today.
Oh, Right, it was Bush the Lessor.
People should be rioting in the streets of America,
with the same amount of rage as the Muslim movie critics,
DEMANDING that the US government IMMEDIATELY stop
all aid to Pakistan.
Let them get taken over by the Muslimaniacs.
Let it implode into nothing.
In fact, help it along, by bombing it "back into the stone age",
as threatened once by George W Bush,
so they can't move out their nukes.
Logan sees the danger. few among us are willing to contemplate the solution--the eradication of Islam, which is only partially a religion. once Islamic terrorists destroy a couple of American cities, we will think about destroying their holy places, and their cities. Sea of Glass, amigoes, Sea of Glass.
Only their leaders need to be killed. the masses can be allowed to live in reservations, after spaying and neutering.
Most Americans are far too sophisticated to believe in an apocalyptic holy war for the future of the world. Unfortunately, the moslems are very busy fighting that war against us.
And the first nukes must take out all the Paki nuclear capability. Then Mecca, Medina Riyadh, Teheran, Qom...
Repeat until pacified.
Logan is a very tough cookie. She is the reporter who was famously beasted upon by 200 celebrants in Tahir Square after Mubarak was deposed.
It is extremely difficult to fight a successful counterinsurgency when the insurgents have a safe haven in a neighboring country. That, plus trying to fight a manpower-instensive war on the cheap, have allowed the Taliban to rebound when we had them on the ropes in late 2001.
The wider problems of Islamic terrorism and Sharia encroachment, different sides of the same coin, have to be confronted whenever and wherever they are found in the West, politically if possible, with automatic weapons, if necessary. Islam has no answers to the problems of the human race; it is stuck in a 1400-year-old time warp that hasn't changed appreciably since the days Mohammed walked the earth. All it has is force. Islam can only win if we abandon the field. But too many in the West are willing to do just that.
American Political leaders need to say this over and over again till they understand. The only way to win a war is to defeat the enemy army, occupy his country, and control his people. If we don't have the political will to do these things, we ought not fight a war.
"Al Qaeda changed the nature of journalism forever when they slit Daniel Pearl's throat. On camera."
She said that cold. Woman's not playin' because she's looked that monster in the eye, first-hand.
She needs to look Obama in the eye and call him out for the rat bastard Muslim AQ sympathizer he is.
This is what journalism is supposed to be about. I'm amazed that Lara Logan was allowed to pursue and broadcast a story that directly opposes the MSM's narrative regarding Islamic terrorism.
Before she gives this speech again, if she does, she should correct her chronology. The attacks on our embassies in Africa took place in 1998; the USS Cole attack took place in 2000. Other than that, she nailed it.
Also, Lara Logan has "absolute moral authority" to call Obama out on this.
Obama and her MSM masters are going to send her back for more political molestation. She hasn't mouthed the proper lines.
More assaults until she acquiesces becoming a true Obamabot.
Oh my heavens. She's got my vote. It's not that hard to figure out. If somebody says they want to kill you -- let's assume they do.
Bill Jones, President Bush went after the Taliban in Afghanistan to take away Al Qaeda's safe haven, the one they used to plot and train for 9/11. What that mission morphed into over the subsequent decade was a shared venture, including Mr. "Right War" Obama.
Ms. Logan saw the truth first-hand in Egypt. I wish the leftist women of this nation could understand what we're up against...perhaps the belles of code pink will find out soon, on their little jaunt to "stop drone killings".
That's a pretty severely mugged liberal right there.
She gets it.
