America is Threatened by Terrorists and Wimps
America is in danger of another 9/11-style (or even worse) terrorist attack, but that’s not our only threat. Equally dangerous are those international Frenchsissy organizations like the International Criminal Court. This is according to a Pentagon document which says America’s strength is being challenged by “a strategy of the weak.”
This strategy of the weak includes “international forums, judicial processes and terrorism.” Ooookay. Nothing like giving equal weight to a terrorist attack and an international hearing. Let’s see, suicide bombers crash planes into the World Trade Center, and some limpwristed wine-sniffing diplomat is trying to discuss international law; and both of these events are equally infuriating! Riiiight!!
Douglas Feith, the number 3 official at the Pentagon, said “We need to think broadly about diplomatic lines of attack, legal lines of attack…”
Other threats include “waffling” allies. Rumsfeld gave the example of Spain abruptly withdrawing 1,300 troops from Iraq last year. International resentment of America’s global influence is another danger the Pentagon is warning us about.
This document also stresses the importance of our allies providing bases for American forces. Uh, since these are sovereign countries, shouldn’t this be an internal matter for the people of those countries to decide?
