We’ve Won! Our Leader Said So!

Well, we must have won, because several terms and words will not be spoken by this administration anymore. “War on Terrorism”, “Jihadists”, and “Global War” are no longer considered acceptable terms. Why? Are we afraid of insulting some backward extremist holed up in a cave in Pakistan? Really? Is that what gets our leader’s panties in a wad? Apparently so- because now we have to speak in respectful tones about the dirtbags and pigs that want us dead.

It’s official. The U.S. is no longer engaged in a “war on terrorism.” Neither is it fighting “jihadists” or in a “global war.”

President Obama’s top homeland security and counterterrorism official took all three terms off the table of acceptable words inside the White House during a speech Thursday at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, a Washington think tank.

“The President does not describe this as a ‘war on terrorism,'” said John Brennan, head of the White House homeland security office, who outlined a “new way of seeing” the fight against terrorism.

The only terminology that Mr. Brennan said the administration is using is that the U.S. is “at war with al Qaeda.”

“We are at war with al Qaeda,” he said. “We are at war with its violent extremist allies who seek to carry on al Qaeda’s murderous agenda.”

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said in March that the administration was not using the term “war on terror” but no specific directive had come from the White House itself. Mr. Obama himself used the term “war on terror” on Jan. 23, his fourth day as president, but has not used it since.

This is so reassuring, I can’t tell you how I have fretted about hurting the feelings of some truly ignorant, illiterate, unsanitary peasant who was intent on destroying “The Great Satan” because he was told to do so by another equally ignorant, repulsive “Imam” who probably buggered more boys than the Catholic Church. I feel so much better now that our Fearful Leader has dismissed these scary terms from our language, Of course, he did not do this for us- it’s all about the sensitivity.

“Worse, it risks reinforcing the idea that the United States is somehow at war with Islam itself,” Mr. Brennan said.

As for the “war on terrorism,” Mr. Brennan said the administration is not going to say that “because ‘terrorism’ is but a tactic — a means to an end, which in al Qaedas case is global domination by an Islamic caliphate.”

“You can never fully defeat a tactic like terrorism any more than you can defeat the tactic of war itself,” Mr. Brennan said.

He also said that to call the fight against al Qaeda and other terrorist groups — which he said remains “a dynamic and evolving threat” — should not be called “a global war.”

While Mr. Brennan acknowledged that al Qaeda and its affiliates are active in countries throughout the Middle East and Africa, he also said that “portraying this as a ‘global’ war risks reinforcing the very image that al Qaeda seeks to project of itself — that it is a highly organized, global entity capable of replacing sovereign nations with a global caliphate.”

What we should be saying. instead of “we are at war with Al- Qaida”, which appears to give them some legitimacy, is ” we are doing everything we can to kill this virus that is extremism faster than they can breed.” We should not rest until anyone who wants to destroy the United States is dead and in a grave, because this is exactly what they want for us.

This is not all about Al-Qaida, but about a Global War on Terrorism, no matter how Hussein wants to soft- shoe it- there are many branches of terrorists- Hamas, Hezbollah, Islam-al Jemiyah, and others who don’t even have a name. These thugs strike all over the Globe, hence the “Global War” name. How inordinately dumb do you have to be not to get it?

Oh that’s right- you have to be “sitting in Rev. Wright’s church but didn’t hear any racism dumb” to not understand. And if you are Muslim, you have my sympathy, but understand that because you do not speak up, we might just lump you in with others who tacitly approve with their silence the horror that goes on in the name of Islam.

The best way to clear that up is to speak out, speak clearly, and do try not to avoid the words that actually mean what they say.

The last thing we need in this day and age is more mush- mouthed politically correct speech that just obscures the true problem.

    Obama doesn’t want to step on the toes of his secret friends!

      That, and there is an aversion in liberal circles about plain speech- they have to couch things in “softer” terms so no one’s feelings are hurt.
      Truth? Their inner child needs a good stompin’
