Well “Duh”!

I guess this just wasn’t considered true until the boys at al Qaeda said it was true, huh?

If it were in a position to do so, Al Qaeda would use Pakistan’s nuclear weapons in its fight against the United States, a top leader of the group said in remarks aired Sunday.

Not only would it use Pakistan’s nuclear weapons, it would use Iran’s, North Korea’s, Russia’s or anyone else’s they could get their hands on.

And that says what? That we have every reason to consider it a national security priority to ensure a) they (AQ) don’t get their hands on such weapons and b) those nations most likely to develop them and hand them over to AQ don’t get the opportunity to do so.

Anyone – what would be an indicator that a regime might hand that sort of weapon over to AQ?

Answer? If the regime already actively supports terrorists and supplies them with weaponry .

I’ll leave it to you to figure out which country that is and why now is a perfect time to be taking a much stronger stand in support of dissenters there. If you’re still in the dark, read this interview, especially the last few paragraphs.  If what the interviewee says is true, we’re talking sea change, folks.

  • What do you mean by “taking a much stronger stand in support of dissenters”?
    Does that mean calling the Supreme Leader a poopy head?  Does that mean putting US boots on the ground?  Something in between?  What?

    • How about nothing less than what previous presidents have managed during similar types of protests in other countries? Think Reagan and “Solidarity” for example. See if you can noodle out what “taking a much stronger stand” means.

  • And even with this DUH! moment, The Clown™ still believes that we should use law enforcement to capture al-Qa’ida members and make sure that they are read their Miranda rights.

    I hope we survive the four years of this nightmare known as the Obama administration.

  •  I keep having this recurring nightmare where Obama is dead panned, casually holding his cigarette streaming a pleasing wisp of smoke, saying, I’m more worried about this, pointing to the pleasing wisp of smoke, than this, pointing to a fiery mushroom cloud that overwhelms the background, while Jimmy Carter whispers in his ear, it’s the right thing to do…the right thing to do…be nice…I was always right, you know…

  • You ought to write speeches for Obama.

    • That was for Capt. Obviousness. Not sure why it didn’t post as a reply.

  • If you’re still in the dark,….
     
    No one in their right mind would be.
     

  • <i>Shortly after al Qaeda’s announcement, Attorney General Holder forcefully replied that, if al Qaeda used nuclear weapons on US soil, the Justice Department would vigorously prosecute those responsible.  “I’d have an indictment out against George Bush faster than you can say, ‘we inherited this problem’,” Holder said.</i>

    <i>The Attorney General directed questions about the cost of a presidential pardon to the State Department.</i>

  • Ok. Ok. Here’s The Plan:   “All you good Iranians stand over here next to me, all you bad ones stand waaay over there. More… more… another mile or so… there ya go!  Now, don’t look up!”
