Today’s football spiking from the ever-prescient and diligent Nation defender, President Obama — Jhihadi John has been vaporized. Along with three cheers for me, Obama claimed, “. . . we have contained them.” Whew, that must be really good news, after all, a President wouldn’t lie. Umm, oh, wait, what’s that noise? A bomb?
Obama had hardly dropped his ABC microphone that news broke from Europe: Paris was under siege — a well coordinated siege. At least 158 killed. Countless injured. More work-related violence? No. Islamic terrorism unleashed — un-contained.
French President Holland then announced that he was closing France’s borders and Paris would be under curfew. Closing borders? How insensitive and inhumane of him. Does he not know — that is politically incorrect? Isn’t Hollande the head of a socialist party? Isn’t he one of the European leaders along with Merkel who believes in open borders? Haven’t these two promoted the massive migration of un-vetted refugees? Now Hollande lies to France, claiming that he is closing its borders? That is not possible. France’s borders are porous and easily penetrable by anyone seeking ingress.
Now Hollande claims France stands united? What does it take for lame minds like Hollande’s to accept that Muslim terrorists mean business? Evidently he didn’t believe their threats of infiltration.
Is there a lesson for America? . . . Other than questioning anything Obama pronounces, can anything be gleamed?
Vetting millions, or even just a few thousand from the middle east or even from Asia is impossible. No amount of diligence can verify the veracity of any documents presented for admittance, if any are even presented, which is often not the case. The West needs to accept that ‘documentation’ is readily available for a price throughout most of the world. Accepting immigrants in our world is a game of playing the odds. Today Paris showed us what is at risk.
