They Compared Themselves to Who?

Repeat post from September of 2014, still relevant, if not more so today as we have the president of the United States telling us that the swap of 5 top Taliban terrorists for the release of deserter Bowe Bergdahl wasn't negotiating with terrorists because the Taliban, while they may "commit acts of terror aren't themselves a terrorist organization".   So, I guess according to Obama the Taliban aren't terrorists or Muslims.  Then what the hell are they?
They Compared Themselves To Who?

In an amazing display of chutzpah, Prime Minister David Cameron of Great Britain and President Barack Obama in 2011 actually compared themselves to Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher and President Ronald Reagan. 

This from the USA Today of May 24, 2011: " the two leaders liken the effort to free Arab people from authoritarianism to the Cold War and the fall of the Berlin Wall in the 1980s. They liken their personal efforts to two leaders who came before them: Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher."

Sorry, Prime Minister  Cameron and President Obama.  We, the freedom loving people of the United States knew Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher.  We were friends with Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher.  You, sirs, are no Ronald Reagan or Margaret Thatcher. 

Margaret Thatcher and Ronald Reagan knew you could only have peace through strength, something Cameron and Obama don't come close to understanding.

Ronald Reagan--I don't think so.
Margaret Thatcher--I don't think so.

They can say they have a personal relationship like Thatcher and Reagan, although that is very dubious, but even if that were true, no one with an ounce of understanding of history and also of current events can compare the strength as presented to the world [figuratively - through powerful consistent rhetoric and literally-through military strength]  by Thatcher and Reagan, to the lack of strength as shown by Cameron and Obama.

In fact, Prime Minister Cameron and President Obama have projected weakness to the world in dealing with this Islamic terrorist threat.   The most recent show of weakness has been in the two so-called leaders wanting to "dismantle and destroy" ISIS.  There is no way you can destroy an enemy if you are afraid to name the enemy.  ISIS, just like Al Qaeda, and the other current terrorist organizations are Jihadists, who, in the name of Allah, want to establish every where in the world a Caliphate [Islamic state led by a Supreme Islamic leader who imposes Sharia law].  The members of ISIS are Islamists, they are Muslim terrorists, whether President Obama or Prime Minister Cameron call them that or not.  And the fact that they go out of their way to say they are not, shows weakness in my mind.   

Watch the following video to see how the Prime Minister of Great Britain and the President of the United States view these Islamic terrorists.

Okay, David Cameron and Barack Obama.  So, you really want us to believe that the terrorists of ISIS cannot possibly be Muslims because Islam is the great religion of peace.  So, if that is the reason they cannot possibly be Muslims, I guess Al Qaida terrorists are not Muslims.  I guess Boco Haram terrorists are not Muslims.  I guess Hezbollah and Hamas terrorists are not Muslims.  I guess the Muslim Brotherhood are not Muslims.  I guess the Islamic state of Iran leaders are not Muslims.  I guess the dictator Assad of Syria is not a Muslim.  I guess the Britain Jihadist who cut off three "infidels" heads is not a Muslim. I guess Osama Bin Laden was not a Muslim.  I guess Omar Abdel-Rahman was not a Muslim.  I guess  Khalid Sheikh Mohammad is not a Muslim.  

Hmm, I wonder what religion Cameron and Obama actually consider  members of that list I named to be?  Maybe Christians-I have never heard either of those two "leaders" call Christianity a religion of peace.  That must be it.

So, while President Barack Obama and Prime Minister David Cameron may have a relationship and an agreement of  how the world is today, they are definitely not Thatcher or Reagan.

But there is a more realistic comparison of the two men that is much more appropriate:

David "Neville Chamberlain" Cameron
Barack "Jimmy Carter" Obama
