Ten “Suspected Gunmen” Paralyze City Of 19Million

It seems there might have been only 10 terrorists in the most recent Mumbai attacks. If true, it’s not only lucky, as thousands could have died from a larger assault, but it’s a serious embarrassment for the Indian military.  This report suggests policemen within shooting range, neglected to fire at the terrorists during the rampage.  I have a feeling legally armed citizens in Texas could have settled a similar threat faster than the 3 days it took India.  Just don’t go expecting any corporate media outlets to start pushing “conceal to carry” laws.

This story should remind everyone about the damage a small unit of terrorists can inflict on open societies where neighborly trust and commerce prevail.  I’m going to go out on a limb here and suggest that liberals continue to misdiagnose the problem.  Half the time, they argue that Al-Qaeda is disorganized and that the threat is overblown.  The other half, when at least admitting a problem, think it’s a police matter and not a military one.

To those who hold either mindset, you need to understand that just because Al-Qaeda means, “the base,” doesn’t mean they have 8:00am conference calls with every one of the tens of millions of radicalized Muslims on the planet.  You are correct though.  There is indeed something that binds Al Qaeda with these people.  A way for them to all be united and informed.  A tacit understanding that motivates and guides them.  A manual for life and a handbook with all the answers.  Figure it out. Besides, you don’t agree with profiling or wiretaps anyways, and this is an international issue being financed in Saudi Arabia and Iran.  So beyond good old “blue” diligently supporting Uncle Sam, the only local involvement we suggest is a capable Americanization plan for new immigrants.

By the way, the headline was a derived from a real quote made by an international wire service with a diseased, leftist agenda.

Melanie Phillips lays it out in her, “Reverting to type” piece.  And as usual, Mark Steyn drives it home as well in his, “Just another front.”


Will Obama’s Ego Make Him Use Military Force?

So Al-Zawahri calls Obama a “house negro.”

I’m pretty convinced that the islamo-barbarians will lay off the USA to see if Obama is the capitulator everyone hopes he is.  I view Olympic Games’ security in a similar way.  An attack during the games against anyone other than America and Israel, would surely unite all the world against the perps.  This isn’t part of their design.  Instead, they’ve been picking off our allies “for supporting us” one by one, for years, but they certainly know when to strike and when not to.  For this reason, I think they’ll give Obama a chance; and reward us with the illusion of peace and reinforce that Bush and the Republicans (and the Jooooos) caused the tension and wars.  Then again, if he fights terror aggressively, especially if he’s bold enough to go into Pakistan like he suggested, they’ll treat him like Bush.  But, I truly believe they’ll give him ample chance to blame ourselves, and acquiesce to many of their desires without so much as a bullet fired.

Therefore, I take a lot of pleasure in the fact that Al Zawahri called him a bad name.  Now, he might be daring Obama to disprove him to not act like a “house negro,” (whatever that means to an islamic supremecist) but either way, I really hope this get’s under Obama’s handsome skin and he fulfills all of my neocon, warmongering desires.

I’ve taken some solace in the notion that Obama will receive the same daily security briefs that Bush has been looking at, and that out of pure self preservation and ego, he’ll respond like a normal America-loving Executive and kill them whenever he finds them.  He is perhaps more cognizant of his legacy, at this stage of his term, than any other president, and he surely doesn’t want to be remembered as the man who got us hurt.  Hopefully now, it is even more obvious to Obama and his supporters that radical Islam doesn’t care if a Republican or a Democrat occupies the White House and that these throwback savages from the 7th century deserve to be slaughtered immediately…there rather than here.

UPDATE: Powerline notes that while Democrats and Al-Qaeda often have the same talking points, it’s a bit odd that they chose to call Obama a name liberals usually save for black conservatives, until they come out for Obama on Meet the Press.
