Vichy at AEI
Listening to G. W. Vichy's "major speech" at AEI this morning. He's still using the same logic, even after it's been shown invalid.
"If we fail over there, the turrists will follow us home."
Think about this for a minute. How will they do this? Several thousand Sunni and Shiite warriors will not be able to infiltrate easily into American life. These guys are not the elite Westernized types that performed 9/11. If they do attack en masse by some method, it means we are not doing the basic job of controlling our ports and borders.
"All people desire to live in peace."
Observe what they do, not what they say. It's perfectly obvious from their behavior that Arabs do not desire to live in peace. Arabs love fighting. They are a warrior culture with no achievements other than death.
"9/11 happened because Afghanistan was a failed state."
Afghanistan was part of the story, but most of the training and planning for 9/11 happened in Germany and in Florida. There are always failed states around the world; Somalia and Sudan are both failed states that serve al-Qaeda well, and we haven't done anything to eliminate them. Eliminating failed states is neither necessary nor sufficient to protect OUR people from Mohammedans and Arabs.
And what does he propose for solutions? More wasted money, more use of our military in places where it won't make any difference. If we can protect the borders of Iraq, we could protect the borders of the United States.
Now he's talking about our success in building 4000 miles of roads in the "Young Democracy" of Afghanistan, and the failed attempt to eliminate poppy production there. This is the same administration that REFUSES to build a fence around the "Old Democracy" of the United States, and the same administration that PUNISHES the Old Democracy's border guards when they dare to arrest and shoot Mexican drug dealers.
I thought it couldn't get any worse, but it does. Now he's talking about helping Afghanistan to get rid of bad judges. I can hardly even write about this.
What would happen to an American who tried to assist the "Old Democracy" to get rid of bad judges and develop a fair judicial system? The FBI would bomb his house and kill his family, that's what would happen.
