The recent announcement that the United States was negotiating with the Taliban has led many to question whether or not President Biden can be trusted to take on our enemies with the proper force. Some feel that President Biden has made it known that he isn’t willing to do everything necessary to make sure our enemies are subdued, and this could lead to America suffering another large-scale terrorist attack on U.S. soil by those who choose not to negotiate in good faith or who hide among civilians in order to avoid being taken out by U.S. airstrikes.
Guantanamo Bay may be controversial, but it is also an essential tool for keeping terrorists locked up. We must not only keep it open but fill it with more detainees! Who cares if public opinion about Gitmo isn’t great – we’re at war and we have a job to do! The same goes for terror watch lists; these are vital tools that help us track down individuals who might otherwise escape detection. We must never give in to pressure from those looking to exploit these lists as an opportunity to provide cover for their loved ones. How could I ever rest easy knowing I helped someone cause destruction and death even indirectly? Our country has gone too far down a slippery slope already, without another inch.
This doesn’t mean profiling of any kind, of course. That’s just code-word discrimination! Every person on Earth deserves our respect and dignity until they prove they don’t by harming others or allowing harm to come through inaction, which is where due process comes into play. When there’s clear evidence against someone based on solid intelligence or conclusive evidence of their direct actions leading directly or tangentially (e.g., recruiting) toward something like terrorism (which does not include crimes like theft), let’s lock them up for good without compromise.
Now, some people would say some of what I’ve mentioned thus far regarding actionable intelligence seems to run counter to our values as Americans. To that I say: sometimes sacrifices need to be made in service of freedom and liberty! If you truly love your neighbor then you’ll let me take away certain freedoms so long as my intentions are pure and driven by patriotism, trust me! Of course, such sacrifices should not extend beyond what’s necessary… But we all know sacrifice is sometimes required when freedom hangs in the balance… So, yes. Let’s not make any concessions. Let’s stay committed to winning our battles against evil wherever it rears its ugly head.
Obama was not willing to take collateral damage if it meant killing our enemy. The Taliban didn’t take kindly to that policy and took thousands of American lives because of it. will President Biden to me looks and acts as if he isn’t willing to kill our enemies(Taliban) even if they hide among their own people? I said it once already, America needs to get back her respect. I may not know much about war, but there is one thing I do know and that is, I’m tired of the US looking weak in the eyes of our enemies.
If you ask an average person on the street whether or not they are willing to kill another human being, most likely their answer would be no! So why are we putting politicians into office who can’t stomach killing or fighting for what is right? Where did all of America’s brave soldiers go when times got tough. They went where they were ordered to go. They faced the enemy head-on and never backed down. Our military is a fine-tuned machine. Our soldiers are willing to do what needs to be done. Our veterans are my third love. My first is God then country.
Let’s just hope and pray we don’t have to go back into Afghanistan any time soon with Biden at the helm. To be a great leader one can’t just be willing to send our soldiers to their death, but also must be able to do whatever needs to be done, even if that includes going after the enemy and killing them regardless of whether they are hiding in a crowd of their own people. America didn’t hesitate to drop an atom bomb on our enemy at the time. Let me state just for the record, Japan is now our Allie, and they are good people.
God Bless America and God Save The Veterans
