In the wake of the professionally done video chronicling a caged Jordanian pilot being set on fire, that nation’s King Abdullah II promised a Clint Eastwood, “Unforgiven” type response. “Any son of a bitch takes a shot at me, I’m not only going to kill him, I’m going to kill his wife….and burn his damn house down.” said Clint’s, gun toting cowboy, William Munny.Click Here
Within 24 hours Abdullah began delivering. Two terrorists were hung. Then dozens of his fighter jets struck ISIS training centers and weapons/ammo storage sites (that we apparently couldn’t find) in both in Syria and Iraq. Jordan’s foreign minister, Nasser Judeh stated, “We said we are going to take this all the way. We are going to go after them wherever they are and we are doing that.” His king was equally blunt. “This is a war the world cannot afford to lose.”, and will be fought until the military runs “out of fuel and bullets”.
Meanwhile Barack’s biggest battle seems to be against those who’d use the term Islamic Extremism, and Christians who fought in the Crusades. Thursday, while Abdullah was occupied dropping bombs on modern day, soulless jihadi, Obama was busy carpet bombing Christianity at a prayer breakfast. Said Obama “….people committed terrible deeds in the name of Christ.” He continued, “In our home country, slavery and Jim Crow all too often was justified in the name of Christ.”
King Abdullah clearly sees the “Unforgiven” as those Islamic terrorists threatening basic human decency in a civilized world. President Obama, off his recent statements, sees the unforgiven as those Christians who may have behaved badly hundreds of years ago.
Latest word from the White House has Obama getting ready to ask Congress for a “new authorization” for the use of armed force in the war on terror. Let’s hope the authority he’s seeking directs our military might against the atrocity committing barbarians we face in the 21st Century, and not soldiers who fought “in the name of Christ”….a millennium ago.
We’re the good guys Mr. President.
