The aversion Americans have of dying by Muslim in America, all politicians assuage by promising to bomb Syria and Iraq or to brainwash Middle Eastern populations about democracy. Tying attacks like San Bernadino in the US to a war on ISIS and proxies in the Middle East is The Bush Doctrine.
The dumb Bush dictum of fighting them over there so they don’t come here is alive and well-exploited by every fork-tongued politician on the Republican and Democratic sides, other than Donald Trump, who distills the issue logically.
Barack Obama routinely deflects questions about death by Muslim in San Bernadino with answers about keeping “up the pressure, our air campaign will continue to hit ISIL harder than ever.” And oh, “It is very difficult for us to detect lone wolf plots or plots involving a husband and wife, in this case, because despite the incredible vigilance of our law enforcement and homeland security, it’s not that different from us trying to detect the next mass shooter. You don’t always see it.”
Every time John Kasich or Chris Christie or Marco Rubio and the interchangeable rest are asked about death by Muslim in the US; they too whip out the Bush Doctrine. Over to the disgusting Kasich:
BLITZER: Governor Kasich, one of the killers in San Bernardino was an American who was not on anyone’s watch list. How are you going to find that radicalized person and stop another such attack?
KASICH: Well, first of all, Wolf, I said last February that we needed to have people on the ground, troops on the ground in a coalition similar to what we had in the first Gulf War.
I remember when the Egyptian ambassador to the United States stood in the Rose Garden and pledged Arab commitment to removing Saddam Hussein from Kuwait. Before we came out here tonight, I am told that the Saudis have organized 34 countries who want to join in the battle against terrorism.
First and foremost, we need to go and destroy ISIS. And we need to do this with our Arab friends and our friends in Europe.
And when I see they have a climate conference over in Paris, they should have been talking about destroying ISIS because they are involved in virtually every country, you know, across this world. …
Americans must reject this illogic.
