Mitt Won’t Do It Either

Washington’s Shame, Mitt’s Opportunity – By Michael Walsh – The Corner – National Review Online

But this is where the evil scourge of political correctness must always lead: to a policy of suicidal defenselessness, thus illustrating Robert Frost’s famous dictum that a liberal is a man “too broad-minded to take his own side in a quarrel.” Sympathy for the devil is an unmistakable sign of weakness to those blessed cultures, otherwise benighted, who never adopted the decadent intellectual charlatanism that seeks blame within and recognizes no external moral authority outside the self. And after more than a decade of  Bush and Obama warfighting doctrine — which has basically amounted to “hit ‘em where they ain’t” — we have now arrived at this unhappy place:

Saudi Arabia — the fons et origo of the ideology that attacked us on 9/11 — remains unmolested. The Iranians, ruled by crazed Twelvers who need to destabilize the existing world order so that their hidden imam may emerge to bring “peace,” are on the verge of a nuclear weapon. In Afghanistan, the typically treacherous Afghans now turn their weapons on the Americans with increasing frequency — after all, what’s the downside? Hezbollah is firmly entrenched in Mexico along our southern border, and stretches its tentacles all the way down to Paraguay. And now the Taliban are mocking us, knowing it’s only a matter of time before we’re gone, and they can return to their thousand-year-old savage ways. 

Sigh. I’ve been saying it since about 2003, when I first read Angelo Codevilla: The way to destroy Muslim Jihadi Terrorism is to destroy the regimes that support it. We made a good start by destroying the power of the Taliban and Saddam Hussein regimes. We should have finished the job by destroying the Iran, Saudi Arabia, and Syria regimes.

Had Bush or Obama done so, we would be living in a much different, and safer way. But Bush didn’t have the guts to do what was necessary, and Obama never had the desire.

And so here we are today. Happy?
