On Tuesday, Joe Biden presented his first United Nations General Assembly speech as president. I labored through almost 32 minutes of the speech when a most profound announcement was proclaimed: “I stand here today for the first time in 20 years with the United States not at war.”It was an odd boast, considering how the United States left Afghanistan and what it means for the future.Our retreat from the Afghanistan battlefield left behind thousands of friends and allies and billions of dollars’ worth of equipment.We were never at war with Afghanistan. Our enemy was – and continues to be – individuals who take inspiration from a strict interpretation of Islam and employ terrorist tactics to press their cause.Politically, we left the country as we found it – led by the same Islamist radicals who controlled the country 20 years ago. Despite what the Taliban might say, U.S. intelligence estimates that al-Qaeda could be fully reconstituted in Afghanistan in a year or two. Gatestone Institute read more
I have been saying since starting Boudica BPI Weblog in April of 2008 that we are at war with Islam. Not a war of our choosing but a war declared upon us by Moslems in the name of Islam. These are not radical Moslems, radical Islamists. They are in fact fundalmentalist Moslems or true Moslems following in the footsteps of Muhammad. One must think of Islam not as a great religion but as an evil cult of intimidation, subjugation, death and destruction for that is exactly what Islam is, has always been and always will be until it is eradicated from the face of the earth. It is not individual Moslems that must be removed but the ideology itself that must be defeated. Nothing has changed in the 14 + centuries aince Muhammad dreamed up this evil except the weaponry used against us. Until Islam is removed Moslems (all Moslems) will continue on their historical path of destruction and death.
