So Long Bastard. Have A Nice Trip To HELL!
By David Paulin
It wasn't supposed to be like this. President Obama was going to make the world love us -- all while fighting the war on terror with Marquess of Queensberry rules. No more "torture" such as Bush-area waterboarding, during interrogations of 9/11 suspects. No more Guantanamo. Our foreign policy would be based on "mutual respect."
Yet there was Osama bin Laden, mastermind of 9/11, hiding in practically plain sight in Pakistan, a supposed ally. He was in a resort town just down the street from a military academy. No doubt Pakistan's intelligence service knew all about it.
Now Osama bin Laden is dead, and millions of savages in the Middle East and elsewhere are enraged – going into anti-American fits because America defended itself and sought justice for 3,000 murdered civilians on 9/11. How ironic that information used to track down bin Laden came from the Bush administration's waterboarding of some of the 9/11 conspirators.
The war on terror is far from over. This is simply a pivotal stage in a long war -- one pitting Islamic extremists and their cheerleaders in the Muslim world against American, Israel, and the West. These jihadists, of course, have their friends in the West – sympathizers and facilitators in the international Left, a fact that complicates the war on terror.
So long bastard. Have a nice trip to HELL!
