President Obama has decided, wisely, I think, to characterize each of these Islamists by other means. It’s obvious he wants to try to cool things down so the Islamists don’t act upon a narrative of “us vs. them.” They see the world this way because, to them, it’s all about continuing the centuries-old fight between Islam and Christianity. This has been going on a very long time, people. Think about the Islamic takeover of much of the Iberian peninsula. Consider the nearly interminable multiple Crusades. Then think about the idiocy of “president” George W. Bush (the quote marks denote that he was elevated to that office by the Supreme Court, and not by the electoral college). He invades the WRONG COUNTRY!! and then feeds the craziness by calling it a crusade and going to Nineveh and talking about his Devine mission. Yikes!!!! What a stupid narrative to throw into a centuries-old conflict. I don’t think he could have done any worse in his hapless ignorance. So President Obama has been trying to unwind the crazy situation created by W. Nothing wrong with that. Of course he knows the Islamists are directly to blame for the terrorism. But he also knows we have played more than our share of the part in this centuries-old clash between religions. This does not excuse any errors in judgment on Obama’s part…but does explain the situation way better than any right or left wing militarism. This is my main reason for thinking that anybody on the democrat side is better than Hillary. She has to “prove” she belongs in the testosterone club of warmongers.
