Peace Through … “JOBS”?

You can’t make this stuff up!

Well, you could, but who would believe such idiocy?  Obama Administration “strategist” (?), Marie Harf, told an incredulous Chris Matthews at MSNBC that the way to defeat ISIS is to give them job opportunities!?

Really?  Too bad Generals Eishenhower, Patton, et al, in the Allied high command never thought of that back in World War II!  How many lives could have been saved if we had simply asked the Wermacht and the Waffen SS to lay down their MG-42’s, Panzershreks, and 88s to go and flip burgers for a living instead of seeking their Fuhrer’s “Lebensraum”?

Can you imagine the headlines the day after Hitler launched his last desperate offensive into the frozen Ardennes Forest?  (News headlines the next day might have looked something like the image at the top of this article.)

The Bottom line is: elections have consequences, and the consequences of America’s 2012 presidential election are a bitter harvest of Jihadist turmoil rapidly transforming the Middle East into a nightmare right off the pages of 7th Century World History.
