Obama Administration's head firmly in sand.

THE HAGUE, Netherlands -- The phrase "global war on terror" is finished, at least as far as U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton is concerned.

Obama and his cabinet now have their heads firmly in the sand and are ignoring the fact that we are at war across the globe with radical Islam. Pretending the war doesn't exist won't make it go away. A shift to political correctness by not using the term "war" doesn't mean bin Laden and his ilk want to kill us any less. There is a reason terrorist leaders around the world hoped for Obama's election - they now know the heat is off, and who knows what manner of appeasement is on the table.

Obama and Clinton hope to buy peace by "being nice". This is now a consistent policy, with absolutely zero response to the planned launch of a North Korean ICBM that can reach Hawaii, with no response to Iran's utter dismissal of the Obama "hey let's be friends" video, with no response or statement of policy on the Islamic nutjobs at war with us.

This appeasement will of course end as all appeasements of murderous thugs have ended in history, with more dead innocents and a much harder task ahead of us to defeat them in the future. Of course Obama has no intention of defeating them, he wants to be friends with them.

The Islamic dogs will surely now be hunting the US rabbit. Hold on, folks, it's going to get ugly.
