Here we go again, coddling the enemy and implementing rules of engagement that prohibit our military from doing its job. Iran captures our warriors before forcing the U.S. to apologize for the ENEMY'S bullying and endangerment, all to send a (false) message that America is now so weak we've fallen insurmountably far under the enemy. As Sen. McCain just said on Fox News, Obama spokesman Josh Ernest is an "idiot" and knows not of what he speaks as actual APPRECIATION is expressed by the Leftist White House for Iran's combatant actions. To praise the enemy for humiliating our military should make all reasonable, pro-"Peace through Strength" Americans agree with what Dean Cain said on Fox this morning: "This makes me sick to my stomach." Then went on to suggest reasons many of America's finest are leaving the military. No question, they're leaving due to the Left's pussy-footing around per the tone set by an extremely weak President who doesn't believe we face existential threats. I'll continue to ask: if democrats still praise Obama's capitulation and bending over for Iran, does it not make you wonder whose side are they on?
Whose side are we on? How about the side of those sailors and their families?
Because of the actions of this administration a situation that in the past might have lasted weeks, months, or even years, was over in a single night.
Of course Palin is not alone. (Because as we know she only jumps on bandwagons these days, she never hitches them up herself.)
Here are some of the conservative responses courtesy of Crooks and Liars:
Retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson tweeted: "While POTUS is preparing to talk about his so called "accomplishments", 10 of our American sailors are being held by #Iran."
And former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush tweeted: "If our sailors aren't coming home yet, they need to be now. No more bargaining. Obama's humiliatingly weak Iran policy is exposed again."
Texas Sen. Ted Cruz also joined in the Obama-bashing. "This is the latest manifestation of the weakness of Barack Obama, that every bad actor ... views Obama as a laughingstock," he said.
Mitch McConnell had this to say: "I was very concerned that he's missing where the challenge of the world is with security -- he sits and talks positively about Iran when they just took 10 of our Navy sailors," he said after the speech.
And John McCain, the man responsible for inflicting the Wasilla Wendigo on America, said this:"Ten American sailors have been taken into custody in Iran," he said in a statement. "But President Obama completely omitted this latest example of Iran's provocative behavior so as not to interfere with his delusional talking points about his dangerous nuclear deal with Iran."
Now as egregious and short sighted as all of those responses were, they were at least given when the fate of the sailors was still up in the air.
However Palin's response, which by the way is no longer originating from New Orleans, was posted today well after the sailors were returned safely to their ship.
Which makes her not only a day late, but a truck load of brain cells short.
P.S. By the way not that any of these idiots care, but now we are learning that the sailors did indeed enter Iranian controlled waters due to a navigational error.
Do any of us believe that if an Iranian military force entered our waters that we would not act in a similar fashion?
