      News, INFORMATION & Analysis

Obama amputates our nuclear arms

By: Charles Krauthammer


Under President Obama’s new policy, however, if the state that has just attacked us with biological or chemical weapons is “in compliance with the Non-Proliferation Treaty,” explained Gates, then “the U.S. pledges not to use or threaten to use nuclear weapons against it.”

Imagine the scenario: Hundreds of thousands are lying dead in the streets of Boston after a massive anthrax or nerve gas attack. The president immediately calls in the lawyers to determine whether the attacking state is in compliance with the NPT. If it turns out that the attacker is up-to-date with its latest IAEA inspections, well, it gets immunity from nuclear retaliation. (Our response is then restricted to bullets, bombs and other conventional munitions.)

However, if the lawyers tell the president that the attacking state is NPT noncompliant, we are free to blow the bastards to nuclear kingdom come.

This is quite insane. It’s like saying that if a terrorist deliberately uses his car to mow down a hundred people waiting at a bus stop, the decision as to whether he gets hanged or 100 hours of community service hinges entirely on whether his car had passed emissions inspections.

Apart from being morally bizarre, the Obama policy is strategically loopy. Does anyone believe that North Korea or Iran will be more persuaded to abjure nuclear weapons because they could then carry out a biological or chemical attack on the United States without fear of nuclear retaliation?

The naivete is stunning.

We have to let go of the idea that Obama is clueless. He know exactly what he is doing - tearing this country apart piece by piece so it will no longer be unique in the world.

“TOP TEN” LIST OF JIHADI FORUMS FOR 03 AUGUST 2009 ^ | August 3, 2009 | n/a
Posted on August 3, 2009 3:24:12 PM PDT by Cindy


It’s been almost a year since a failure of truly epic proportions brought down the most significant websites of the global jihad, on or about 10 September, 2008. A year before that failure, the same sites were the target of a citizen-based effort to drive them off of the Internet. This 2007 campaign against the jihadi forums had the effect of encouraging the creation of a number of new sites, while other forums (e.g. al-Hanein) loosened their membership requirements. The net result was that the events of 2008 found the web of jihadi sites more resilient in the face of calamity than they might otherwise have been. Here now is my currently list of the Top Ten such sites. In this case I have ranked them roughly according to their significance, but the ordering is still somewhat arbitrary: The most active sites are not necessarily the most significant in terms of content, the sites with the most members may have a great many inactive members still on the rolls, the older sites may not be entirely jihadist in nature, and so on.

“U.S. Helps South Africa Beef Up Security for World Cup After Al Qaeda Threats”
By Jana Winter -

SNIPPET: “The State Department has been providing South African police with extensive training after threats against the American and British teams during the world’s most-watched sporting event”



Qaeda Group Threatens to Attack World Cup
CBS ^ | April 7, 2009, 2:38 pm ET - Updated | Posted by Khaled Wassef
Posted on April 7, 2010 7:08:59 PM PDT by Cindy

SNIPPET: “The North African terror group al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb has threatened to attack this summer’s World Cup games in South Africa.

“How amazing could the match United States vs. Britain be when broadcasted live on air at a stadium packed with spectators when the sound of an explosion rumbles through the stands, the whole stadium is turned upside down and the number of dead bodies are in their dozens and hundreds, Allah willing,” reads a statement the group published in a recent issue of the Jihadi online magazine Mushtaqun Lel Jannah (Longing to Paradise).”

SNIPPET: “In addition to the U.S. and U.K. teams, the teams representing France, Germany and Italy are also on the group’s list of targets.

“All those countries are part of the Zionist-Crusader campaign against Islam,” the statement says.

The group says they will use some undetectable explosive that will be able to circumvent security checkpoints at the games.”

SNIPPET: “South Africa had announced last October that its security forces had foiled an al Qaeda plot to carry out a terrorist attack during the 2010 football World Cup. According to reports published then, South Africa’s National Intelligence Agency, senior police forces and American agents jointly conducted the operation, which led to the arrest of a number of suspects linked to the group in Somalia and Mozambique working on a plot to carry out bomb attacks during the games.”
