Tickling the fear factor (sigh) again!

"Barack and Hillary have made their intentions clear regarding Iraq and the war on terror. They would retreat and declare defeat. And the consequence of that would be devastating. It would mean attacks on America, launched from safe havens that make Afghanistan under the Taliban look like child’s play."

Mitt Romney ~ spoken during his presidential race drop-out speech last week, demonstrating a lapse in memory that the worse terrorist attack in American history took place under the reign of those now claiming to be the best able to protect us, i.e., conservatives like George Bush (who continued reading "My Pet Goat" with second graders 7 minutes after he was told of the second attack on the World Trade Center).

Romney then regained some prescience of mind predicting more attacks on America but miscredited Barrack and Hillary for that increased likelihood instead of attributing the tremendous growth and cultivation of appreciative terrorists to Bush and Cheney's own acts of torture and terrorism.

I'm more afraid of Mitt than a terrorist attack! Plus note his use of "safe havens". Where are these safe havens? Shouldn't our military be working on those havens? Heavens!

Mitt: Blah blah blah FEAR!!! Blah blah blah
I'm out of the race Blah blah blah.

Get the hook!

I know it is a PIA referring to the downunder approach to these conflicts, but just now it seems inspiring.
We are pulling our front line troops from Iraq by mid year. Apart from dealing with vital regional issue the plan is to increase an Afghanistan presence.
The increase would work better with either a concerted, consulted effort by the US; or the US just going away and letting everyone else get on with it.
It hurts me to be so abrupt, but the simple fact is that your current administration is not committed to solutions.
Romney, thankfully will not be part of the future. frankly I hope Billary are not either.
Going out killing people is serious shit and we all need some thinking people behind the planning.
