Obama Declares End to War As Al-Qaeda Goes on Recruiting Spree

Peace for our time.

(Jeff Winston)

Barack Obama declared an end to war yesterday in his second Inaugural speech.
The AP reported:

President Barack Obama says that a decade of war is now ending and an economic recovery has begun.

America’s possibilities are limitless, the president said in his inaugural address. He said we will seize this moment if we seize it together.

Obama said that America can’t succeed when only a few at the top do well and a growing many can barely make it. The country’s prosperity must rest on a rising middle class, he said.

he forgot to tell the terrorists.

Meanwhile, Al-Qaeda went on a recruitment and fundraising spree following the Algerian gas plant massacre.
The Washington Post reported:

A week of violence in Algeria and Mali has transformed al-Qaida’s North Africa branch into a cause celebre for militant Islamists around the globe, boosting recruitment and fundraising for the jihadists and spurring fears of further terrorist attacks in the region and beyond.

Even after suffering tactical defeats in both countries in recent days, the movement known as al-Qaida in the Islamic Maghreb is being lionized in Internet chat rooms and in official statements by extremist groups, some of which are urging reprisal campaigns against Western interests.

U.S. officials and terrorism analysts are pointing to last week’s hostage drama in eastern Algeria as a turning point for the al-Qaida offshoot, boosting its credibility while marking its transition from a predominantly Algeria-focused organization to a true multinational threat able to draw manpower, weapons and resources from across the region.

As American troops prepare to withdraw from Afghanistan in the next two years, ending a conflict that started as an effort to crush al-Qaida after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, Washington and other Western capitals face the grim threat of a virulent new al-Qaida wing capable of a broad reach.

    The Neville Chamberlain of our time. Weak kneed coward who doesn’t ever want to take responsibility while partying down in front of the communist party parade yesterday. Yep matches him to a T.

    Peace in our time, this from Neville Obama. I guess he’s right when 50% or better believe his garbage. The only pres. I can remember that allowed (allows) Americans to be butchered over seas without even an outcry. What a miserable big eared pos.

    It occurred to me this morning in reading my usual sites, that Mr. Obama has been given a “mulligan” on way too many events, that is compared to any other president. And who has done this…why the media of course. And why have they done it….because they are RACIST!!!! They look at him and see a black man and expect him to underachieve. I look at him, see him as the POTUS and expect him to live up to what a POTUS is supposed to represent. So the problem isn’t so much him as the media in my opinion (today). I think that this racism by the media must be exposed and exposed constantly until it no longer exists. Then we will have a POTUS and not this poser we have now.

    With the dictator there is no war on terror–therefor no war. Hear no evil, see no evil, don’t talk about evil–e.g. Benghazi, Algeria, Fort Hood, etc. If he doesn’t admit to it, it’s not there.

    What I saw years ago about mothers in Islamic world naming their male children after Osama Bin Laden was disturbing. 1 Bin Laden killed while 10’s of thousands are reborn and now are turning 12 or 13, we are in an ugly state of denial about this plague.

    Oh it’s war allright. With islam. But that dumb bastard in the White House is on their side so no wonder he thinks there is no war.

    The left is clueless and can’t figure out they are being used to further the cause of islam. Thank God the right is armed. No islam for us, thank you very much.

    Wow, Traitor in Chief just explain he wanted to understand Al Qaeda. Are you joking Traitor in Chief?

    They will bring the war to us. Just because we’re stopped fighting doesn’t mean they haven’t. The government is just setting us up for another 9/11. So in a few years we’ve gone from having Al Qaeda on the run to having America on the run.

  • Off the subject, but congratulations to Mr. Netanyahu on his re election as Prime Minister in Israel.

    “a decade of war is now ending”

    He’s right.

    The decade is ending.

    But not the war.
