The same thing that happened in Afghanistan in the battle of Tora Bora, is the same thing that happened in our consulate in Benghazi, Libya.
When the US turns over our security and our national interests to Muslims or anyone else, who for one reason or another are "able to be persuaded to knock-off for lunch" at a certain time and place, these troubles will continue.
Either our political and military goals are worthy of our blood and treasure, those that we know we can trust, or, the act, military or political, is not worth doing in the first place.
Tribal and Muslim religious connections, will always take precedence in that part of the world over the desires and needs of the United States. We need to always think in this way, when dealing with the Middle East.
The only country that we can trust is our "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend" Israel. Israel is the best ally that we have in the Middle East, Period!
The Obama administration has done everything they can do to keep the pressure on Israel by not supporting the green movement in Iran and not stopping the carnage in Syria. Why?
Both Iran and Syria, along with their stooges, the Palestinian authority, Hezbollah and Hamas, are the pressure points on Israel. This pressure that Mr. Obama needs to force the creation of the Palestinian State during his watch as US President. Mr. Obama has done everything to make Israel feel that they are on the defense, as anyone with a brain knows they have been since May 15th, 1948 to this very day.
With all the wars, the battles, the bombings, the terror and the insults of the Obama administration, Israel is still there and no matter what happens will always be there, because that's the way that G-od wants it to be.
If G-od does not want this to be, how on earth could a nation of 5 Million people, more or less, stop for over 60 years, over 500 million Muslims (not counting the millions of anti-Semitic scum throughout the world) that have stated for decades that the ultimate goal is the destruction of Israel and the driving of the Jews into the sea? Israel will survive and they will see the destruction of their enemies.
There is a reason why the US was the first nation to recognize the State of Israel. Peace follows Victory!
Every single nation on earth will do whatever is required to fulfill their own self interest, first, before considering the needs of their allies.
It has always been this way and it will always be this way. We do it and everyone else does as well.
Wake up to this fact and our lives will be far better off.
