America partying like it is 1979 or 1996

- - Saturday, August 9, 2014

Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton and Barack Obama.

What do all three have in common?

Spending hours trying to come up with a good answer to that question is surly a violation of the 8th Amendment's prohibition against cruel and unusual punishments. So skip straight to the answer.

Every time America has a Democrat in the White House, radical Islam metastasizes.

Early in the Carter administration, Iran, which had been a steady ally of America, fell out of favor. The radical Islamists, led by the then-exiled Ayatollah Khomeini, began street demonstrations against the Shah of Iran in the fall of 1977.

Since Mr. Carter was a Democrat, he was ever diligent in his duty to hurt America and stab our allies in the back. Mr. Carter pressured the Shah to give in and eventually the Shah abdicated in early 1979 and Iran became an Islamic republic and the focus of evil in the modern world. A few months later, 52 Americans became hostages and America saw how truly hapless Mr. Carter was.

The Democrats did their best to have America forget about Mr. Carter's zeal to harm America. When Bill Clinton, the "new" Democrat, came into the White House in 1993, the Islamists immediately greeted him by bombing the World Trade Center.

What did Mr. Clinton do? He decided terrorism was a criminal offense instead of an act of war. The Clinton Justice Department prosecuted a number of Islamists, most of whom are still in the SuperMAX prison in Colorado. Unfortunately, Islamists look at their prisoners as just another excuse for terrorism and a bargaining chip.

Mr. Clinton was given a chance to get Osama Bin Laden. The Sudan offered Bin Laden to Mr. Clinton. In the finest traditions of American liberals, he worried about the "legality" of extraditing Bin Laden to America, where there were already charges filed against him.

The Sudan offered the Clinton administration voluminous information on Bin Laden and if the Clinton administration did not want Bin Laden, the Sudan would sit on him and prevent him from doing anything.

Mr. Clinton did what Democrats always do.

He dithered.

And he played the saxophone on late-night TV.

And he played golf.

Bin Laden escaped and on Aug. 7, 1998, Bin Laden masterminded the attacks on two American embassies in Africa that left almost 300 people dead, including 12 Americans, and wounded almost 4,000.

As a result of that attack, Mr. Clinton, in what only Democrats would consider a manly show of force, ordered cruise missiles to attack empty tents and he bombed an aspirin factory.

Today, Mr. Obama has the Islamists quaking in their mom jeans.

Actually they are laughing at Mr. Obama.

Mr. Obama has repeatedly supported Islamists everywhere. He helped run arms into Syria and still the Islamists hate him. If Mr. Obama had his way, the American military would have become ISIS's air force. Fortunately real Americans raised such a stink about American intervention in Syria, that even Mr. Obama could not ignore it.

Mr. Obama's favorite team, the one that is against America and the west, has swept through Syrian and Iraq and is now setting up a modern day, 7th century nightmare. This nightmare is complete with ethnic cleansing, the genocide of Christians and Sharia law.

When Mr. Obama could no longer ignore the collapse of Iraq, a nation that only a couple of years ago he called "stable," he ordered a couple of F/A 18's to drop a couple of bombs.

Wow.

This is only slightly more effective than Mr. Clinton bombing an aspirin factory.

Once again, America watches Mr. Obama's shadow theater. He is going to make a nominal show of force, and as soon as this story fades from the headlines do nothing else and allow the Islamists to take control of a large part of the Middle East.

Mr. Obama will do nothing and the evil of radical Islamism will continue to spread.

Members of the ISIS taunted Mr. Obama and America on social media with images of 9/11.

The real tragedy is we could prevent the next 9/11 now but Mr. Obama won't do it.

He's cheering for the other side.
