    Clinton Threatens Eritrea

    US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has warned that the US will "take action" against Eritrea if it does not stop supporting militants in Somalia.

    She said after talks with Somali President Sheikh Sharif Sheikh Ahmed in Kenya's capital, Nairobi, that Eritrea's actions were "unacceptable".

    She also said the US would expand support for Somalia's unity government.

    Eritrea denies supporting Somalia's al-Shabab militants, who are trying to overthrow Somalia's government.

    Al-Shabab is growing in strength and 250,000 Somalis have fled their homes in fighting between militants and government forces over the past three months.
    Before the talks on Thursday, Mrs Clinton honoured the victims of the August 1998 attacks on the US embassies in Kenya and Tanzania, in a wreath-laying ceremony in Nairobi.

    More than 220 people were killed and 5,000 injured in the first major attack by al-Qaeda on US targets.

    AP news agency quoted her as saying that the embassy site was a reminder of "the continuing threat of terrorism, which respects no boundaries, no race, ethnicity or religion, but is aimed at disrupting and denying the opportunity of people to make their own decisions and to lead their own lives".

    Why can't we just mind our own business and allow these places to rot in hell ?
    Trouble is, Americans do have a conscience....which can get us into trouble....and has....more than once.
    And, every effort must be made to expose al-Qaeda for what it is , a gang of murderous thugs, with no conscience.

    Itís useful idiot syndrome running amuck! Sad.

    If Clinton had half a brain and she doesnít, she would be actively seeking and looking for cracks and fissures within the camp of Islam that we can exploit to our benefit. That one fell in her lap. Yet she is so ignorant of the texts and tenants of Islam and the existence of the global jihad that she tries to cool it. Itís the blind leading the blind! No wonder America is going to hell in a hand basket so fast. All our leaders are exceedingly incompetent.

    I find it ironic that the secretary of state for a nation that causes a lot of terror attended a memorial to decry terrorism.

    Go figure.

    If you want to stop terrorism, stop creating it.

    How did we benefit? We wasted more than a trillion dollars, loss more than 4,000 soldiers, and got thousands more soldiers wounded and maimed all to try to win the hearts and minds of Muslims, which are obligated to hate us per their religion no matter what we do. Watch how fast Iraq inevitably becomes a poodle of Iran as soon as we leave that hellhole!

    Donít get me wrong; I had nothing against ousting Saddam. However, why in the hell did we have to occupy the place subsequently in order to pursue a silly fantasy based nation-building mission that was preordained to fail? What ever happened to going home after we eliminate our enemies and leaving behind our death and destruction as a festering sore and harsh reminder of what happens when you cross the USA?

    I mean the occupation of Iraq and also the occupation of Afghanistan as well to attempt to win the hearts and minds of Muslims, which is literally impossible to do no matter what we do and also counterproductive as hell, as for as Iím concerned are the two biggest strategic blunders ever in the history of the USA.

    You know a lot of people see GWB as a right-winger because of the wars he incompetently pursued. However, Bush was one of the most liberal Presidents ever in history. He spent money and grew the federal government like a Dhimmicrat on steroids at the same time he also pursued wars like a bleeding heart political correct multicultural loon. Not to mention that he also tried to destroy the conservative movement in the USA by rewarding 20 million illegal Hispanics with amnesty, and he left the Republican Party divided and in shambles. Thank God he is gone!

    Now I just canít wait to get rid of Obama.

    Had Bush not been a bleeding heart liberal and a political correct multicultural moonbat, as soon as Saddam was captured and Iraq was scoured for WMD, we would have left Iraq hoping that the giant power vacuum left behind would inevitably lead to a sectarian jihad between the Shiía and the Sunni that would have also sucked in both Iran and Saudi Arabia.

    Then when Iran was inevitably sucked in neck deep with attempting to impose its hegemony over Iraq and very distracted, thatís when we should of struck Iran with everything we had and obliterated the ruling Mullahs and eliminated their nuclear weapons programs. Then turned right around and done the same thing to the House of Saud!

    Hell, if we had done that and then gone home afterwards instead we would have broken the back of the global jihad and sent a very loud and clear message that would have reverberated throughout the Dar al Islam.

    Our biggest problems is we keep electing blind and incompetent leaders!
