Obama blames U.S. for rise of terrorist threat by “feeding extremism”


I admit it. I watched Zero address the American Legion yesterday. I had some degree of hope that the Legion members might set Obama back on his heels a bit. He snoozed the members with his usual non-emotional tone, and they remained somewhat polite. All and all his remarks were ridiculous and made little sense. This was the high point. Of course, it is our fault for the terrorism, Forget that Jefferson and Adams held the view that these Muslim fellows would always be a problem

Via Breitbart:

Monday at the American Legion’s 96th National Convention, President Barack Obama said the answer for ISIS’s “evolving terrorist threat” is not for America to “occupy” countries and end up “feeding extremism.” […]

“The answer is not to send in large-scale military deployments that over stretch our military, and lead for us occupying countries for a long period of time and end up feeding extremism.”

Part of an earlier post:

Thomas Jefferson, John Adams and the Middle East

In 1786, Jefferson, then the American ambassador to France, and Adams, then the American ambassador to Britain, met in London with Sidi Haji Abdul Rahman Adja, the “Dey of Algiers” ambassador to Britain.

The Americans wanted to negotiate a peace treaty based on Congress’ vote to appease.

During the meeting Jefferson and Adams asked the Dey’s ambassador why Muslims held so much hostility towards America, a nation with which they had no previous contacts.

In a later meeting with the American Congress, the two future presidents reported that Ambassador Sidi Haji Abdul Rahman Adja had answered that Islam “was founded on the Laws of their Prophet, that it was written in their Quran, that all nations who should not have acknowledged their authority were sinners, that it was their right and duty to make war upon them wherever they could be found, and to make slaves of all they could take as Prisoners, and that every Musselman (Muslim) who should be slain in Battle was sure to go to Paradise.”

For the following 15 years, the American government paid the Muslims millions of dollars for the safe passage of American ships or the return of American hostages. The payments in ransom and tribute amounted to 20 percent of United States government annual revenues in 1800.

Not long after Jefferson’s inauguration as president in 1801, he dispatched a group of frigates to defend American interests in the Mediterranean, and informed Congress.

Declaring that America was going to spend “millions for defense but not one cent for tribute,” Jefferson pressed the issue by deploying American Marines and many of America’s best warships to the Muslim Barbary Coast.

    Interesting that Jefferson and Adams had a better grasp on this issue back then than Obama does today.

    George- deer caught in the headlights- Bush on 9/12/2001 did not seal our southern borders with shoot to kill orders.
    Barry- Where’s my putter- Obama today keeps our southern border open to all comers declaring to ISIS, Al-quada and drug cartels everywhere it is open season on America; come and get us.

    Hey Bunker, Coincidencily this past Sunday I explained to my nephew the passage “to the shores of Tripoli.
    As I forced myself to watch this speech at the American Legion I was hoping against hope these America veterans would get up and walk out enmasse in response to the cow pods he was hurling at them as he, as always the hypocrite that he truly is, effortlessly hid his contempt for these true Americans.

      Talk about sticking it to the military. This time, the greatest generation. I was sorely disappointed. That he would only go there said it all.

    ‘He is’ the enemy. His hate for moral standards and godliness shows in his contempt for America and what it stands for. He may hold the position of Prez, but he isn’t – in truth – Pro-America, just the opposite. The ruler’s of this world put him in as a ‘buffer slave’ – Karl M. would be proud. ‘Control language and you can control thought. Control thought and you can control society.’ Resulting in ‘lowing expectations’ and rewarding depravity and the mindless collective. Exhibited in ‘the Burning Man’ festival. http://nationalreport.net/parents-guide-burning-man/
    Just as God made flesh His Word (John 1) so does the mimic have his Lie in the flesh (and there are many). It’s not going to get better. If fallen man could turn the tide, ‘The LORD of lords’ wouldn’t have to come down and do the clean-up work (Rev 17:14 KJV).

    I wonder where Obama thinks our nation would be to day if we had continued paying tribute to this day? What an absolute idiot we have for a president.
