Joe Biden Wages War on the War on Terror
No surprise here, Joe Biden doesn’t believe we are in a war on terror.
“The President continues to talk about ‘the war on terror.’ That is simply wrong,” Biden, who now chairs the Senate Foreign Relations Committee said in a speech at the National Press Club last September.”Terrorism is a means, not an end, and very different groups and countries are using it toward very different goals. If we can’t even identify the enemy or describe the war we’re fighting, it’s difficult to see how we will win.”
There it is again, another person on the left saying we can’t win. This is very maddening to me, there is no war that America can’t win, but we can’t use our full force or the liberals would really hang George Bush out to dry. Can you imagine if we did everything in our power to win this war, even if it meant bombing the mosques and hospitals they hide in? We are doing our best to fight a politically correct war which means we can’t use all our might. We are in essence fighting with one hand tied behind our backs and we wonder why the war drags on and on.
Biden’s staff has preferred other phrasing and there has not been a problem with that,” said Andy Fisher, a spokesman for the committee’s senior Republican, Richard Lugar.
And how does Biden explain how he kept the phrase out of legislation when the Democrats were in the minority?
The Republicans “would want to get whatever it was passed, and they knew I’d be the bastard at the family picnic who wasn’t afraid to take the heat being ‘weak on terror’ — I’d go in and rip them up,” he told the Politico.
Biden isn’t alone on the Hill in his objection to the phrase. In March, the House Budget Committee banned “global war on terror” from the 2008 budget.
Just deny that we are in a war, that sounds like a good idea, doesn’t it? The Democrats are so week on this issue it is frightening to think what our future holds if they ever gain full control of the government.
“I think that the whole political establishment of both parties has been either confused or a little intimidated by the president’s jargon when he talks about terror,” Biden said.
Intimidated by the president’s jargon, that’s all we are dealing with here, jargon. How can so many people forget what happened to this country when we believed the radical Islamists were just spewing jargon? The war on terror is real Sen. Biden, whether or not you have the courage to admit it.
