Despite whatever rhetoric may be out there, and no matter what the news media or the political class may say, the War on Terror is still ongoing. Not that you can tell much these days – according to the Obama administration, the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq are pretty much over, yet Afghan forces are facing a massive rise in casualties, as the Taliban ramps up attacks there during the U.S. withdrawal.
As the so-called “Arab Spring” continues to shake up the Middle East region, with Egyptian Muslims slaughtering Christians almost on a daily basis (and when they aren’t killing them, they’re forcing them to convert to Islam under threat of death), and the civil war in Syria still ongoing, you have to wonder, whose side is America on now? It wasn’t that long ago that President Bush was mocked for telling the world “Either you are with us, or you are with the terrorists,” yet that ‘red line’ was enough to illicit a clear response from Libyan dictator Moammar Gadhafi, who shortly thereafter gave up his nation’s weapons of mass destruction and made a show of ramping down his nation’s support for Islamofascist terrorists.

They encouraged change in Egypt, but don’t seem to care about the death and destruction that change has wrought. They allowed four Americans to die in Benghazi last year, and are still working to cover up the details even today.
