Freedom via Afghanistan? GOP Chairman Steele takes Heat

July 4, 2010

ONCE AGAIN,  “It’s 1-2-3-4… WHAT Are We Fighting For?”

FINALLY, a bit of sanity issues from the Republican National Committee as Chairman Michael Steele blasts Obama’s escalation of the war and American deaths in Afghanistan.


Regarding U.S.  role  in Middle East,  Steele apparently said ” that we would be in the background, sort of shaping the changes that were necessary in Afghanistan as opposed to directly engaging troops,” Steele continued. “But it was the president who was trying to be cute by half by flipping a script demonizing Iraq, while saying the battle really should be in Afghanistan. Well, if he’s such a student of history, has he not understood that you know that’s the one thing you don’t do, is engage in a land war in Afghanistan? All right, because everyone who has tried, over a thousand years of history, has failed. And there are reasons for that. There are other ways to engage in Afghanistan.”

While Steele fails to ask the most fundamental questions, at least he points out the futility of exhausting our military and national resources over there. Anyone who desires to explore the debate, need only search a  “Just War” dialogue on Google to find a reasonable case against American military involvement. Distinctions must be made between Jihad and domestic terrorist threats. The cost of security must be balanced against the loss of Freedom. If Believers are serious about opposing Islam, we should consider the strategies that underlie the gospel.   Wisdom would show a better way that allows Israel to defend herself with God’s help. America’s State Department controlled by Globalists is a poor substitute.

Here is a clear signal for advocates of The Teaparty to advance the argument that freedom does not equate with endless land wars, especially in remote places.  And where is the Left on this?  Notice the silence from the the Lamestream Media?


To illustrate my point-  in view of  the national debt, and a 9-year war of negative value for the American people, consider this bit of spiked news information from an interview of a former American ally who was murdered in the heart of the war zone:

“Just in case you missed this: In a November 2, 2007 interview with Al-Jazeera TV, Bhutto spoke English and told correspondent David Frost that Osama bin Laden was dead and the person who killed him was Ahmed Omar Saeed Sheikh. Omar Sheikh is one of the persons convicted for the kidnapping and killing of American journalist Daniel Pearl. Bhutto was assassinated less than two months after this interview.”  (this item from Pat Buchanan’s blog)

Did the media report this at all?  Where is the pro-war, Neo-Con network Fox on this? Suspiciously silent. For those who might desire some real balance to the Neo-Con worldview of the globalist Fox-trotters, try exploring the wealth of information posted on a true conservative’s Blog.

Here we find a fresh, invigorating perspective with decades of seasoned geo-political experience in comparison to the stale, monolithic dogma of “conservative” hucksters like Hannity and the Corporate Media.


While the people of Israel deserve our prayers and support, their government is no less subject to corruption than any other state.
In 1967, Israel viciously attacked America in the Mediterranean Sea, yet our history books fail to record it. See details here and search Google for more on the matter.

    I don’t think that’s a fresh new way to look at afgan. Something people have been thinking for a long time. We need to leave & we’ll just have to leave the safest way possible. I think one reason is if I had a son killed over there I would think it was all for not. It’s a weird country & will never change. I like how you connected to the words of the bible
