This was a quote from Obama tonight. Read it, then my thoughts below.

"I have Muslim members of my family. I have lived in Muslim countries," Obama said, according to a White House transcript. "My job to the Muslim world is to communicate that the Americans are not your enemy."

I agree with the statement, but he needs to realize one thing......They brought the war to us and continue to bring it to us. Appeasement has NEVER once in 2000 years of history worked "in the Muslim world"

We do not consider them our enemy, but HELLO, dimwitt Mr. President, they consider us theirs and that my freind is the problem! Keep pulling punches like that and we will get smacked. Muslims view ANY sign of weakness as victory and it makes them hunger for more! READ HISTORY!

Also interesting, is he avoided and visibly squirmed when asked. "Can the US live with a nuclear Iran?" He refused to have dailog on it. This POS, is going to allow Iran to build nukes folks! It is absolutely stunning.

Just remember, when your blind workshiping session of this guy is over. YOU ELECTED HIM, NOT ME!

This right above a thread accusing Obama of "making" Afghanistan hate us and that any action he takes against them from here on in is his "fault"?

Can we make up our minds around here, folks?

I didn't vote for him, but once again I do find myself agreeing with him. THEY did not "bring the war to us." If you want to talk about terrorism, fine... But try to follow this: An OVERWHELMING majority of Muslims ARE NOT terrorists.

And why is it always someone in the Carolinas that talks about how we're gonna get "smacked"? Here in NYC we go about living our lives. And in places the terrorists probably don't even know about, people are hiding in their closets and peeing in their pants.

Nobody is coming to get you. Your little town will continue to be very boring and very safe for generations to come. You can stop worrying.

Muslims hate everyone who is not also a Muslim. The moderate Muslim is a myth at par with the Easter Bunny and Santa Clause. No one needs to do anything to make them hate us.

I didn't need to really reply after this post!

Carolina Cowboy's posts are consistantly indicative of the failure that was the Bush Administration.

LOL!!!!!!! Seriously. I've always wondered about that myself. The people who seem to be the most panicked about such things are always the least likely targets.

We have highly qualified and professional people who work very hard to find out who the bad guys are. It saves you the trouble of having to just assume that it's everyone.
