How about a little march saying that GITMO and drones recruit terrorists?
Has the international left gone on vacation? We have not heard much from them about GITMO recruiting terrorists or President Obama's drones killing civilians.
Today, Sen Graham of South Carolina reported that drones have killed 4,700 people. I think that we can safely say that there is some "collateral damage" in those numbers.
I support the drone program. It is the right thing to do because it shows terrorist leaders that we will find them 24/7. I don't like the collateral damage but they started this by killing 3,000 innocent people on 9/11. So war is war and that is that. We can ground the drones the minute that they stop waging war on us.
Of course, the real story is the silence from the left here, there and everywhere.
Where are the French politicians saying that France sent troops into Mali without going to the UN? Where are the Democrats too?
Where is the Nobel Peace Prize committee now that their 2009 recipient is dropping bombs, invading countries and acting more like Bush every minute? The Committee gave President Obama the prize because he was seen in Europe as the anti-Bush. They must be having indigestion in Europe every time that they read about the Obama administration turning into Bush II in the anti-terror campagin.
Where are the demonstrators in European cities calling Obama a war criminal and carrying posters of BO like Hitler? We had weeks of such demonstrations back in 2003.
I don't know about you but I'd love to turn on the TV and watch a nice demonstration in Paris or London criticizing the aggressive policies of the Obama administration.
Or maybe a march saying that President Obama is holding detainees in Guantanamo indefinitely.
Please make my day. I want the international left to prove to all of us that their harsh attacks on President Bush were based on principle rather than politics
