Osama bin Laden once famously quipped:
“When people see a strong horse and a weak horse, by nature, they will like the strong horse.”
Well, I don’t know of any horse the United States has had that is weaker than the one currently in the Oval Office. But, don’t be afraid. They are only predicting 400,000 people crossing our borders this month.
What are the chances any terrorist could make it all the way in? It must be close to impossible, right?
Al Qaeda is now threatening an attack on the United States that would be more devastating than 9/11 was. Of course, if they did make it into this country their target could be a city that has defunded police and installed social workers in their place.
They could poison the water supply or set off bombs in the most crowded parts of the city. But, if they really want to destroy a city, they could manufacture a lot of votes and elect progressives. That has worked for the Democrats.
The video by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), commented on having a former Gitmo prisoner, Ibrahim Al-Qousi in it. Al-Qousi was convicted of aiding Al Qaeda and served a short prison sentencing before Barack Obama sent him to Sudan in 2012. The video is titled “A Message to the American People: You Have Yet to Understand the Lesson.”
Speaking of Afghanistan, Al-Qousi said, “the greatest loss America suffered, besides its material and human losses, is its reputation and prestige as a superpower and the most powerful country in the world.” I agree. Afghanistan is a black eye on our country thanks to Joe Biden.
The Taliban, Al-Qousi declared, had won a “magnificent” victory, for they “have understood the essence of this religion and the nature of the conflict … they are men whose hands — by the grace of Allah alone — buried a third empire in the soil of Afghanistan and restored the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan to rule by the shari’a of Allah, even if America and its allies hate it.”
If there is anything that the State and Defense Departments did not or would not understand, it was the role that religion played in the conflict. Foreign policy experts for years dismissed statements akin to Al-Qousi’s declaration that victory was won in Afghanistan “by the grace of Allah alone” as mere boilerplate, not realizing that for the Taliban, it was the essence of the entire war. That’s why they’re in power today in Kabul, thumping their chests over having defeated the United States.
