We’ve been warning for years that DC’s policy of Invade the World/Invite the World was a perfect formula to guarantee continued attacks on Americans here at home. But the War Hawks insisted that invading and occupying Muslim countries was the only means of keeping us safe.
One of the War Party’s leading pom-pom girls claimed back in 2008 that the Neocon Wars were keeping America safe. But now that al-Qaeda has issued threats to attack during Christmas, that same blogger now worries the terror threat has indeed worsened:
My bet is that we’ll indeed see “Mumbai-style” attacks in the U.S. at some point. The national security focus remains overwhelmingly on air travel, and the jihadi extremists will simply develop new approaches.
But — Obama escalated the Afghanistan War! He’s sent an additional 50,000 troops. US troops have been “fighting them there, so we won’t have to fight them here,” as the Neo-jingoist cheer went out at the inception of those wars.
Could it be we paleos had a point when we warned DC’s illegal and immoral invasions would only enrage more Muslims?
