Good God, I’ve been banned from RedState. Here’s what gets you censored these days:
"The enemy is extremism, we think..."
General Petraeus is probably a great man. But by the continuous references to ‘David’ in Presidential speeches, it is clear that he is being set up as the fall guy by the Bush Administration. You don’t get to be a four-star by being dumb, and the General surely sees the position that the President is putting him in.
The General has a duty to his Commander-in-Chief, but he also has a fiduciary duty to the American people. He has a family interest in not ending up as the fall guy for a failed strategy.
The stage is set for General Petraeus to break with the President and be the first to name the enemy. The enemy is Islam. It is not possible to negotiate with a faith that requires all non-believers to be either converted, subjugated, or killed. It hasn’t happened for 1400 years and its not going to happen now.
Maybe I'm crazy, more likely we're in trouble. History is watching General.
