Jobs for Terrorists?

There are certain things that will provoke anyone to write, and this is one of them.

When you read this, I should caution that is a real quote from a real Team Obama representative, and not something from the Onion or other satirical content.

"We're killing a lot of them, and we're going to keep killing more of them. ... But we cannot win this war by killing them," department spokeswoman Marie Harf said on MSNBC's "Hardball." "We need ... to go after the root causes that leads people to join these groups, whether it's lack of opportunity for jobs, whether --" 

 That's correct readers, give them jobs, and the beheadings will cease!

Could YOU say that with a straight face?

Allow me to hasten to add, this is not America's problem, and not America's fight. Neo-Cons can now have their sh!t fit.

If any of the @sshats ever attempt something here, then give our Warriors an UNLIMITED hunting to license to find, fix, kill or capture ANYWHERE they flee. No mercy, no quarter. Throughout most of human history this has been known that enemies of a nation should have no refuge, it is only recently that we have allowed magical thinking to dictate military tactics. Mark my words, this will end in disaster.

We don't need to go kill random bad people in foreign lands; and we most assuredly don't to go do international social work.

There is no question that these folks are terrorists; they purposely butcher and target non-combatants. The issue is fundamentally they aren't [currently] our problem.

We should fundamentally object to re-entering a now splintered Iraq with ground forces to take ground that we have taken more than once, and the locals can't, or worse, won't hold.

There is no doubt that our Warriors can take any objective, fulfill almost any rational mission, but that is a lethally foolish errand for our blood and treasure. There is no reason to pay that price, AGAIN, if the locals are not going to hold it and build on it. Not to mention it isn't our land and it isn't our fight. Americans have far better ways to expend their blood and their treasure.

So you are welcome to have your fits, but the facts remain.
