You can’t win a war trying to win the hearts and minds of the enemy because, in no uncertain terms, our enemies are not imbecilic, touchy feely liberals.
The enemy, al Qaeda, the Taliban, Ansar al-Sharia…Whatever their nom de plume might be today, are not weak in the knees, sissified, groveling appeasement worms and trying to win their hearts and minds is like trying to teach pigs to sing.
It’s a waste of OUR time and it annoys the PIGS.
Did we win the hearts and minds of the terrorists in Iraq?
Nope but, Obama did tell them when we were leaving.

One thing is certain.
Our enemies don’t see one bit of strength in a “lead from behind” strategy.

So much for Obama’s man of democracy, Morsi, in Egypt and OUR 2 bit Dictator can’t even bring himself to utter the WORD coup.
Did anyone else notice that as long as the Muslim Brotherhood was in charge of Egypt, Obama had not a qualm in the world regarding the sending of F-16’s and tanks TO Egypt but…
