You now realize that you can advance your radical Islamist goals throughout the Middle East, and perhaps into Europe, without any fear of retaliation or interference from the United States. The will to fight is lost. The desire for victory has died. The American people have become fat, lazy and complacent. They no longer see either their freedom or their culture as something they are willing to fight for. It must be heady days indeed in your caves and tents. Hard to imagine, isn’t it? Al Qaeda actually has more determination to see their cause through than the great United States of America! Perhaps that’s because you’re dedicated to the cause of the spread of Islam, while the American people have lost their dedication to the cause of liberty. Complacency will do that to you.
I have no idea of what the Democrats are going to say when other countries quit taking us seriously because we have shown that we will not stand up to them.
