President Trump was on Bill O'Reilly's show before the Super Bowl and of course he said something that freaked out the cucks and pussies of both the left and the Rhino right. When O'Reilly said that "Putin is a killer" and Trump said "There are a lot of killers. We've got a lot killers. What do you think? Our country is so innocent."
This freaks out the NeoCons and the left who both seem to want to start a war with Russia. Super cuck Paul Mirengoff spouts off at Powerline:
I am conflicted about President Bush. I supported him to the hilt when he was President because I thought he was on the right side in the war in Terror. Even though I thought he made a horrible fundamental mistake after the terrorist attack on 911. His first instinct was to protect the Muslims instead of protecting America. He started this bullshit of how we can't tell the truth about the death cult that is our mortal enemy because we need to not offend the non-existent moderate Muslims. He made the same mistake we made in Vietnam. He didn't fight to win. Sure he invade Iraq and Afghanistan. But he started the collateral damage nonsense and the micro managing that got us to were we are today.
What President Trump is saying about Putin is that he is a strong leader who does what he thinks he has to do to protect his people. We had a President who suspended habeas corpus. Closed newspapers and jailed reporters. Shot deserters instead of trading terrorists for them. Killed spies and traitors out of hand. His name was Abraham Lincoln.
What President Trump is saying is that the United States is not operating with clean hands. We have killed our own citizens with drones. Set up proxy armies to do our killing for us. Manipulated governments to our own ends. Invaded other countries. To take their land like Mexico. Or just to stabilize a situation that was too close to home. Cuba. The Dominican Republic. El Salvador. We have done things no different than what Putin did in the Crimea and the Ukraine. What is especially amusing is that this is the mantra that the Red Diaper babies imbibe with their mothers milk but when Trump says it they lose their minds.
There is a strain of moral superiority in American Diplomacy. The John Kerry, John McCain, Lady Graham style that thinks our shit don't stink. This the culture of the permanent establishment of the Deep State in the foreign policy portfolio. Fancy pants tea sipping elitists. There is another strain that is more realpolitik. Henry Kissinger. Leonard Wood. John Foster Dulles. You take the world and it's leaders as it is not as you wish it to be. Sometimes you have to make a deal with a bad guy. You don't get on your high horse and act like you are the Sun God. You know like the last President did to the universal disgust and hatred of most of the leaders in the rest of world who saw him a weakling and a mark. Putin is a bad guy but who are we to say we have clean hands? In fact why should we have clean hands? If we are going to destroy ISIS we are definitely going to get our hands dirty. There will be plenty of photos of dead civilians. Including women and children. "We got a lot of killers." Our guys are not going to be worried about trans-gender rights and womens equality when they are going after ISIS. They are going to kill people and break things. It ill behooves us to lecture people who we want to help us destroy an existential threat to our existence. Let them worry about their country and their sphere of influence. That is what President Trump set up with his Cabinet Picks. He didn't pick a lady lawyer to be Secretary of Defense. He picked a Marine General named Mad Dog.
Things are going to different. It is not the Bush administration that is worried about placating the Muslims and especially the Saudi's. We are not going to worry about the opinion of the Europeans. They are in their own period of transition where Nationalist leaders are rising up to defeat the scourge of Islam. They will be deporting and vetting and doing what needs to be done. Without apology. Without moral preening and virtue signaling.
Just doing what has to be done to keep America safe. For Americans. It is as simple as that.
