Obama Declares Peace for Our Time

Samuel Clemons is credited with remarking years ago, "History does not repeat itself, but it rhymes." If you wait quietly and listen, you can hear the rhyming.

I believe it is peace for our time. Go home and get a nice quiet sleep.

British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain, 1938

President Barack Obama "declared an end" to his predecessor's "war on terror" and began to heal the US reputation abroad when he ordered the Guantanamo Bay prison to close, US editorialists wrote Friday.

No kidding. We likely get Omar Khadr back. Oh joy.

I watched a report on the Iraqi's that went through some kind of peaceful transitional brainwashing (coloring nice pictures, writing nice stories...) on the news. Over 20 of the Iraqi's that have been processed through and returned to their native land have been captured, killed or linked to A.Q. works.
I think someone should ask about what is just out of the picture...
like what kind of gun is aimed at those birds of peace (doves) so beautifully colored.

Soon, Louise, you can say, "Welcome back, Khadr!"

I heard that, too, Rose. I wasn't paying much attention until the crayon part. Good thing the anchor was incredulous and asked the reporter again. He was just as stunned as everyone else at what passes for terrorist rehabilitation.

Maybe they need a 12 step program. "Hi. I'm Khadr and I'm a terrorist."

"Welcome back, Khadr!"

It backfired on Neville, and it will backfire on Obama.

For centuries before Chamberlain, leaders tried to appease invaders. None succeeded.
