One of the most significant complaints in regard to the eight years of the Obama administration was the Obama folk’s pernicious habit of believing that if they said they did something it was the same as having actually done that thing. Over and over again the Obama people would claim to have done something that they in no way actually did – followed by the media and social media barrage of the Obama adherents echoing the claims that something was actually done when nothing was done. Of course anyone so bold as to point out that it was a big old political fib and that nothing was actually accomplished was instantly berated as a hater, racist, what ever the derogatory path was for that day.
Trump gave a very good speech in Saudi Arabia today. He got to the heart of things that needed to be gotten to. It is not okay to kill Jews and Christians. It is not okay to be supporters of those who kill Jews and Christians – among other things.
“Drive them out of your places of worship. Drive them out of your communities. Drive them out of your holy land, and drive them out of this earth.”
“We are adopting a principled realism … Our friends will never question our support, and our enemies will never doubt our determination.”
“Our goal is a coalition of nations who share the aim of stamping out extremism and providing our children a hopeful future that does honor to God.”
“Every time a terrorist murders an innocent person, and falsely invokes the name of God, it should be an insult to every person of faith.”
“This is not a battle between different faiths, different sects, or different civilizations. This is a battle between barbaric criminals who seek to obliterate human life, and decent people of all religions who seek to protect it. This is a battle between good and evil.”
“That means honestly confronting the crisis of Islamist extremism and the Islamist terror groups it inspires. And it means standing together against the murder of innocent Muslims, the oppression of women, the persecution of Jews, and the slaughter of Christians.”
All good stuff that needed saying and bold to say it in Saudi Arabia.
Now the rubber hits the road – Trump cannot be like Obama and merely say he did something – Trump needs to execute on this. That will be extraordinarily difficult to do but it must be done. The last forty years things have become increasingly chaotic and out of hand starting with Iran. Much of this issue begins with Iran sowing seeds of sectarian violence in the lands of their enemies. This has been an ongoing strategy since the early 1980’s. The blame does not rest completely on the Iranians but to a large degree Iran has been the logistical and financial enabler. If Iran were to alter this behavior it would not fix the problem but it would make the problem much easier to deal with.
For decades the west thought of peace in the Middle East as a Palestinian/Arab-Israeli issue. That is no longer the case. Yemen, Libya, Iraq and Syria are nothing more than chaos and the slaughter of the guilty and the innocent. Algeria, Tunisia, Egypt, even Jordan, consistently have terrorist incidents as well. Islamist is a mindset. They not only have no issue killing Christians and Jews they also have no issue killing their fellow Moslems. They truly are a cult of death.
That Trump has gone to Saudi Arabia and made clear that the United States indeed recognizes the Islamist as a cult of death is significant progress in and of it self. It is beyond what Obama ever did.
Now Trump has to execute.
