At last Comrade Obama’s decision to take a nuclear response off the table begins to make sense. We won’t need our nuclear arsenal, now that he has decreed our enemies out of existence by banning words that describe them:
President Barack Obama’s advisers will remove religious terms such as “Islamic extremism” from the central document outlining the U.S. national security strategy and will use the rewritten document to emphasize that the United States does not view Muslim nations through the lens of terror, counterterrorism officials said.
The change is a significant shift in the National Security Strategy, a document that previously outlined the Bush Doctrine of preventative war and currently states: “The struggle against militant Islamic radicalism is the great ideological conflict of the early years of the 21st century.”
Now all he has to do is ban the use of terms like “dirty bomb,” “suitcase nuke,” “chemical weapons,” “biological weapons,” et cetera, and we’ll all be safe.
Peter Feaver, a Duke University political scientist and former Bush adviser, is skeptical of Obama’s engagement effort. It “doesn’t appear to have created much in the way of strategic benefit” in the Middle East peace process or in negotiations over Iran’s nuclear ambitions, he said.
Obama runs the political risk of seeming to adopt politically correct rhetoric abroad while appearing tone deaf on national security issues at home, Feaver said.
Careful Professor Feaver, or Chairman Zero might start banning terms like “grownup.”
