During these times of troubling lack of direction and leadership in the Republican party it’s easy to wonder “what if”. What if the Dems are right? What if their “mommy” capitalism is the way? What if having Barak and his crying cats leading us softly is the best option?
Then I read this kind of stuff:
C.I.A. Had Plan to Assassinate Qaeda Leaders
“WASHINGTON — Since 2001, the Central Intelligence Agency has developed plans to dispatch small teams overseas to kill senior Qaeda terrorists, according to current and former government officials.
The plans remained vague and were never carried out, the officials said, and Leon E. Panetta, the C.I.A. director, canceled the program last month.
The program was designed in the frantic weeks after the Sept. 11 attacks when President George W. Bush signed a secret order authorizing the C.I.A. to capture or kill operatives of Al Qaeda around the world. To be able to kill Osama bin Laden or his top deputies wherever they might be — even in cities or countries far from a war zone — struck top agency officials as an urgent goal, according to people involved in the discussions.”
And there you go. No matter how much I try, I can never see myself voting for the party of pussies. The party that tries to give a terrorist organization the benefit of civility.
In a way Bertrand Russell was right when he said that “War does not determine who is right – only who is left.” When worse comes to worse, I’d rather be wrong and alive.
