Open mouth, insert Joe Biden

The court jester strikes again, this time making statements about the Taliban this week that were not only an “insult” to our military service members carrying on the fight in Afghanistan, it was a slap in the face to it’s countless victims around the globe. And he wasn’t alone this time.

The Vice President made the controversial remarks during an interview with Newsweek, telling the magazine that the militant group is only a threat if it allows Al Qaeda to strike the U.S.,”Look, the Taliban per se is not our enemy. That’s critical,” Biden said in the interview published this week. “There is not a single statement that the President has ever made in any of our policy assertions that the Taliban is our enemy, because it threatens U.S. interests,” said Biden.” If, in fact, the Taliban is able to collapse the existing government, which is cooperating with us in keeping the bad guys from being able to do damage to us, then that becomes a problem for us,” he added.

If this wasn’t sickening enough, Obama’s press secretary parrots the remarks stating the White Houses position. Jay Carney said Tuesday that critics are taking Biden’s words out of context. (Of course they were, Jay)

“We went into Afghanistan because al Qaeda had launched an attack against the United States from Afghanistan,” he said. “And what the vice president was reflecting is that, and this is related to the reconciliation process that I was just discussing, is that the Taliban per se, while we are fighting them, it is not the elimination, the elimination of the Taliban is not the issue here. The objective that the president laid out when he laid out his Afghanistan strategy made clear that the No. 1 principle here is to disrupt, dismantle and ultimately to defeat al Qaeda, as well as help stabilize Afghanistan. And that’s what we’re doing.”

Tell that to the families of the 14,000+ coalition forces killed and 34,000 wounded in action.

“If brought soberly and with substance, private actions can be of material assistance to the government, because the bankers of terror are cowards. They have too much to lose by transparency. Name, reputation, affluence, freedom,status. Theyʹre the weak link in the chain of violence. They are not beyond deterrence.ʹʹ

What’s got to be made very clear to the Iranian government is that its behavior is really quite offensive and really quite unacceptable on a variety of different items..It’s just not acceptable that protesters should be arrested, raped, and sodomized in prison. And the Nuclear Issue.. If Iran did acquire atomic bombs, it would put pressure on other countries in the region do the same. Many Arab countries believe it is unfair that Israel has nuclear weapons. If Arab countries, notably Saudi Arabia but also Egypt and possibly Syria, found themselves caught between a nuclear-armed Israel and a nuclear-armed Iran, it would greatly increase pressures to pursue their own nuclear options. This could result in a regional arms race in the Middle East which is likely to be quite destabilizing, given the number and intensity of conflicts and instabilities in the region. Iran’s support for Hamas and Hezbollah has led to two major wars in Lebanon and Gaza in the past four years. Iran sponsors international terrorism, foments conflict throughout the Middle East, ignores its obligations under multilateral treaties, undermines the Israeli-Palestinian peace process, interferes in Iraqi and Lebanese politics, suppresses the human rights of its own citizens, aids anti-U.S. fighters in Afghanistan and threatens U.S. allies in the region and beyond.
