Allen West DESTROYS Former Obama Spokesman John Kirby
You know how political the Obama military became when a Rear Admiral says something this stupid.
According to The Hill, Rear Admiral and Obama’s former State Department spokesperson said essentially you can’t beat terrorists by killing them.
“You cannot kill your way out of a terrorism problem,” Kirby said on CNN’s “New Day.” “We can hit these guys as often as we want and as aggressively as we want, but we are never going to kill the problem of terrorism.”
Kirby said the president and his team primarily speak about terrorism in “very aggressive, military terms.” “But when you listen to President Trump and his surrogates talk about terrorism, and the threat — and the very real threat that it poses, you hear that talk about it almost in purely militaristic terms — in very aggressive, military terms,” the retired Navy rear admiral said.“And I don’t see a comprehensive, cohesive, you know, multifaceted strategy in the works right now,” Kirby added.
It seems killing is not as permanent as I certainly thought it was.
Regardless, of my thoughts, check out what my friend Allen West commented on Kirby’s comments.
Kirby said the White House is only talking minimally about how to get to the root causes of why people radicalize. “There’s very little discussion about getting at the root causes of extremism and terrorism — working on issues of poverty and human rights and corruption overseas — and that’s a real problem here, because this is a generational conflict.” The former State Department spokesman said the fight against terrorism is going to continue “for a much longer time.” “We’ve been at this now for at least 16 years — very aggressively on the ground. We are going to be at it for a much longer time.”
Johnny boy, we have not been at this sixteen years aggressively, we took an eight-year hiatus for strategic patience and to lead from behind — known down South as following — during the Obama administration where you were a mouthpiece. Thanks to the non-confrontational methods of the Obama administration we have the Islamic State — you remember John, the “jayvee team.” I guess sending billions of dollars to Iran just solved their issues and they feel lots better about themselves and have abandoned that whole “death to America” thing.
How about a bit of historical perspective from Colonel West?
Man, I just gotta ask, what kind of a Rear Admiral is John Kirby? I mean seriously folks, look, John Paul Jones didn’t stop on Lake Champlain and say to the British, “toodles mate, can we discuss whether you had a bad relationship with your dad before I surrender.” Nah, he replied when asked to surrender that “I have not yet begun to fight.” Admiral Farragut, when barreling down into Mobile Bay, didn’t say, “Men, watch your speed, we need not create a large wake and upset our Confederate adversaries.” Nah, he ordered, “Damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead.” Admiral Halsey’s nickname was “Bull” not heifer. Admiral Nimitz, Admiral Spruance… well, I think you get my point.
A little discussion about getting to the root causes of extremism and terrorism? Do we need to work on issues of poverty? Dude, Whiskey-Tango-Foxtrot, Osama bin Laden was not some economic victim, and countries like Saudi Arabia and Qatar who have been major resource providers for Islamic jihadism — that’s what it is RADM Kirby — are not exactly poor nations. What kind of neutered fella is this, saying we’re talking in “very aggressive, military terms?”
Barack Obama changed the dynamic, as he decimated the military.
He destroyed the morale of fighting men and women with inane policies, and he found “Yes men” to carry out those policies.
As Allen West continues,
I once again submit to you, this is why we must NEVER allow progressive socialists to be in control of our military, defense, and foreign policy. These absurdities about talking too mean and needing to address social issues with our enemy are just a bunch of bovine excrement.
“You cannot kill your way out of a terrorist problem?” Hmm, let’s look at history. we tried to talk to good ol’ King George about being independent, he sent troops. Perhaps we should have spoken to King George about whether his mum breastfed him for too long, or addressed his poverty issue? Nah, we fought, and yes, we killed Red Coats and earned our independence.
I suppose all that talking Neville Chamberlain did with Adolf Hitler worked well huh, John? Nah, we had to kill our way to defeating Nazism, Italian fascism, and Japanese imperialism.
Now America faces its biggest enemy again.
Our own brothers and sisters who would rather kill conservatives than to admit they are wrong.
