The ethics of ferocity

posted at 9:40 pm on August 25, 2009 by Doctor Zero

The Obama Administration, aware that everyone outside of union bosses, and interest groups looking for billion-dollar ribeye steaks of taxpayer money, is having trouble remembering why they voted for Obama, has decided to drag CIA interrogators and Bush Administration officials into court, where they will be persecuted for their role in defending America from terrorist attacks. Apparently Obama and his accomplices decided to distract their liberal base from the fiery Hindenburg crash of socialized medicine, by offering them a relaxing cruise on the Titanic of leftist foreign policy. As with everything else the current Administration does, it’s a remarkably foolish move: dangerous for America, and self-destructive as a strategy.

I don’t have much patience or understanding for people who play games with national security for political benefit, so let me dismiss the political strategy of this outrage by saying it once again demonstrates the danger of believing your own political spin, and taking the lovestruck panting of a sycophantic media seriously. Real Americans are not anxious to punish the people who shut down al-Qaeda’s domestic operations. While liberals wave the Justice Department’s report on CIA interrogation techniques at the rest of the world and tearfully beg them for forgiveness, the rest of us are wondering why we don’t reduce the deficit by selling the rights to these interrogations on pay-per-view. The contestants on your average Japanese game show go through more intense ordeals.

Obama should understand that he was elected in spite of his childish posturing as a messiah and redeemer, not because of them. A weary public allowed itself to be badgered into electing the first black president, after they ran out of patience waiting for John McCain to explain why they shouldn’t. Normal people don’t define their relationship with the government by taking pleasure in the humiliation of political figures they dislike. We’re six months past the point where American voters can be kept quiet by suffocating them with the pillow of Bush hatred. We’re about a month past the point where anyone capable of independent thought believes Obama is a better president than Bush was.

Political strategy aside, America needs to resolve its argument about the morality of self-defense, and quickly. It’s my contention that a peaceful democracy has a moral imperative to demonstrate ferocity in defense.

Because we are not an aggressive, conquering nation, we don’t seek to subjugate the world and eliminate opposition. This means we will always be playing defense. One of the most dangerous delusions of the Left is the idea that we might be able to create a civilization that has no enemies. Civilization always has its enemies. Liberals should understand that, since they draw their own political strength from the unhappy remnant that always feels cheated by free-market capitalism, no matter how prosperous it might become. Even the most peaceful and compassionate nation will always be at risk from savages who wish to drown it in blood.

Anyone who has studied any form of self-defense knows the danger of hesitation. Effective defense requires swift and decisive action. When a fist is flying at your face, you don’t have time to flip through your mental catalog of Jet Li movies and pick a cool counter-move. Hesitation can defeat even superior strength and technical skill. The most powerful weapon in the world is useless as long as it remains in its holster… and it provides no deterrence value if your assailant knows it will remain there.

To suggest that enduring six months of Obama has made the CIA more hesitant to conduct effective intelligence operations is an understatement. Democrat political double-dealing is a crime that strikes at the heart of our venerated belief in civilian command of the military. We respect this arrangement, in part, because we believe it is proper for the civilian government to exhaust all peaceful, diplomatic avenues before we commit to war. You don’t send Marine recon units to conduct subtle diplomacy. The Bush Administration did its duty in this regard – for all the liberal caterwauling about “Bush’s rush to war,” it took a hell of a lot longer than Barack Obama’s rush to nationalize the health insurance industry and triple the deficit.

The other side of this arrangement must also be honored: we must allow the military to act with decisive speed, working within clearly defined rules of engagement. The military requires, and deserves, the assurance that they will not be used as political pawns by the civilian authorities. This is the duty a peaceful nation owes to the men and women who risk their lives, and make countless personal sacrifices, to ensure our safety. It is also logical, because the safety of American civilians, along with the hope for minimal collateral damage to foreign populations, depends on giving our defenders the confidence to take swift and decisive action. We know from experience that modern America does not have the political and cultural endurance to fight protracted wars – and, frankly, protracted wars stink. If war is forced upon us, it’s better for everyone involved if we make quick work of the enemy.

The Left has demonstrated a willing eagerness to sap American endurance in times of war, again and again. The antiwar movement is a fusion of many agendas, including domestic political hatred of the sitting President, and outright sympathy with the enemy. There is little that can be said to these elements of the Left… but to those who sincerely oppose extended military action on humanitarian grounds, I would say it is deeply immoral to apply political sanctions and legal penalties to the very people who have the best chance of ending a war quickly, or preventing enemy attacks from claiming innocent lives. Nothing will prompt a determined enemy to attack faster than the belief his target is paralyzed with uncertainty. Nothing will break the will of a terrorist organization faster than capturing or killing its command structure, and that requires timely intelligence. There is exactly one way to obtain that intelligence, and you can read all about it, in the Justice Department report on CIA interrogations. The options to wish determined enemies away, hug them into submission, or instantly penetrate their command structure with double-oh super-spies are not on the table. The option of surrender is underneath the table, and a few hundred million patriotic Americans will stomp on your damned fingers, if you try reaching for it.

If a group of people took your family hostage, and one of their associates fell into your hands, you would do anything to extract the location of your family from him. So would Barack Obama, and Eric Holder, and every Democrat who ever sullied the halls of Congress by referring to American soldiers as Nazis. President Obama would not dither about the finer points of a criminal’s hypothetical “rights” while the man’s accomplices were taking power tools to Michelle and the kids. Anyone who would is a lunatic… and I don’t want to leave the security of our country in the hands of lunatics. The moral justification for relying on professional military and law-enforcement personnel is the understanding that their training will allow them to do all the terrible things we would do to protect our family, more dispassionately, carefully, and efficiently than we could. Double-crossing them for political gain is using the families of other people as poker chips, in the smug certainty your own loved ones are in no immediate danger. If we don’t let the professionals do their jobs against a relentless enemy now, then one day, we will all be soldiers.

A few weeks ago, Eric Holder saw nothing wrong with Black Panthers using billy clubs to intimidate voters. Today, he thinks intimidating terrorists with cigars is a crime. Holder is the one who should be answering tough questions under oath.

Which one is the sellout and why?

Bishop on August 25, 2009 at 10:17 PM
Sellout = Lefty code word for ‘Uncle Tom’

You know who these lefty communists “progressives” remind me of? L. Ron Hubbard. Just read some of that man’s crappy writing and one thing that’ll jump out at you his weird, antiquated vocabulary, like, “Blow,” “Handle,” and of course “Eturbulate”.

Now, the Left has “goons” (i.e. citizen protesters) and “sellout” (Uncle Tom).

Didn’t these retards ever make it out of the 60’s?

——————-

A very strange statement, which indicates Afrolib belives Steele is a Republican because he benefits from that association in money and/or power.

If you are right, Affy baby, Steele took the hard road didn’t he? Wouldn’t fame, power and fortune have been easier as a Democrat?

I think your real problem with Steele is you can’t stand the idea of a black man leaving the “reservation.” It doesn’t worry me that white people are all over the political spectrum, why can’t people of color think for themselves too?

Meremortal on August 25, 2009 at 11:11 PM

Right on target as usual Dr. Z.

The Bush Administration did its duty in this regard – for all the liberal caterwauling about “Bush’s rush to war,” it took a hell of a lot longer than Barack Obama’s rush to nationalize the health insurance industry and triple the deficit.

That’s because in liberal land, it’s all about feelings and the hypothetical.
It’s never about actual results.
Liberal policies almost always end in failure because what might sound good in the classroom or the coffee shop rarely translates to the real world.

A few weeks ago, Eric Holder saw nothing wrong with Black Panthers using billy clubs to intimidate voters. Today, he thinks intimidating terrorists with cigars is a crime. Holder is the one who should be answering tough questions under oath.

liberals are drunk with self righteous power and continue to operate and put forth policies produced in their Berkeley Bubble. Every move they make is based on a political calculation to increase their chances of power.It has nothing to do with finding the truth or what is best for the country.

They have declared war on business during a recession and a war on our intelligence agencies during a time of war.

The fact that this will cost lives and weaken America domestically and internationally means nothing to liberals if they can score political points in the end.

Just editing for accuracy. Don’t start rating the ethnic of Americans with African ancestry. Almost none of us are even close to 100% black African. And save the Ebonics crack. Surely you can beat a lib without using racial stereotypes and misconceptions.

The New Slavery is more insidious than the old type. Under the old type, the slaves used to help the others escape. Under this new version, the slaves cast aspersion on the escapees. Sometime the slaves even physically attack the escapees for having escaped.

Schadenfreude on August 25, 2009 at 11:43 PM

I am not sure about that.

The CIA is strong,sinister,and fully capable of giving what it is getting.
I think Obama has made an incredible mistake taking on the CIA during a time when his economic policies are blowing up in his face and tough decisions are going to have to be made about Iraq and Afghanistan.
If he is going to maintain security levels in Iraq,he is going to have to maintain a large troop level that will still have to assist in operations in Iraqi cities.
If he is going to be successful in Afghanistan,he is going to have to commit serious resources and many more troops.
Both of these options will bring a major outcry from his liberal base that wants to abandon both theaters.

If he follows that base and abandons Iraq and Afghanistan,it will destroy his presidency and international standing.

To come out of this successfully,Obama would actually have to be a leader.
We all know he is nothing more than the Salesman and Chief so there is no doubt he has himself in serious trouble.

Taking on the CIA will only add to that trouble.
Obama will lose this war with the CIA, they know to much about to many people.

Not sure I agree with you here. 0bama did really inspire millions with hope that things could be different this time around. (Boy, are things ever different.) The fact that it was all smoke and mirrors is finally beginning to dawn on a lot of people.

We’re about a month past the point where anyone capable of independent thought believes Obama is a better president than Bush was.

Not sure about this either. I think there are a lot of voters who still want to justify their choice.

But other than those two points, you have my full agreement. Another terrific Doc Zero post.

Cinday Blackburn on August 26, 2009 at 6:08 AM

Anyone who has studied any form of self-defense knows the danger of hesitation.

Doc Zero rightly points out this argument. I would add that, in the context of Obama’s last 12 mos, political correctness and the fear of being called a racist have led to an enormous amount of hesitation on the part of the opposition. This is purposeful and exactly why political correctness was invented–it lowers defenses. Obama knew that, so did Axelrod. Hence, they play the race card, use fear mongering and demagoguery to “freeze” people in their tracks, isolate them, ridicule them (sounding familiar via Alinsky?) and then summarily have their run of the field. Bowing to political correctness, which is a term that is used far too liberally, is akin to calling timeout in the middle of a basketball game, watching the other team stand still, then continuing on to the basket and scoring.

I argue that political correctness is unAmerican. We have the freedom of speech and should exercise it. The left has devolved ANY opposition to Obama as unAmerican (howard dean), racist (garafalo), nazi-ish (pelosi) and the list goes on and on. The net effect of bowing to the left’s rules on political correctness is to hush any and all dissent.

I am glad those days are over.

My take is that it’s Einstein’s definition of insanity: Doing the same thing over and over but expecting a different result. In the president’s case, it’s pursuing a far-left policy. First, nationalizing industries and spending us into oblivion, Second, socializing healthcare insurance. Third, defeatist defense policies.

Doc Zero: another fine essay. the problem w/our lack of military decisiveness? Some of the latter Geneva Conventions that we’ve signed. I think they seek to make war no longer an unpleasant experience. They’re unrealistic and we should back out of them. The essence of our problems in this nation is that both political parties have embraced (the dem’s totally-the Repub’s partially) the concept of transnationalism. World governance has began to displace our own Constitution and elected government. We must have the courage to reverse that trend of Transnational Progressivism. DD

Nothing will prompt a determined enemy to attack faster than the belief his target is paralyzed with uncertainty.

And you can make book that AQ, the Taliban, and enemies we’ve yet to meet are celebrating this latest assault on our security apparatus. Obama and company have just issued an open invitation to these vermin and, perhaps just as bad, demoralized the many fine men and women who stand between us and the abyss.

When the Clinton crowd chose to treat terrorism as a crime, one could write it off to inexperience or plain negligence. But to do what Obama et al. are doing here, post 9/11, such a generous explanation is out of the question. No, they are doing this willfully and with full knowledge of the consequences. And the blood will be on their hands when our enemies RSVP.

I have noted that many elected officials, both Democrats and Republicans, called upon America to unite behind Obama.

Well, I want to make it clear to all who will listen that I AM NOT uniting behind Obama!

I will respect the Office which he holds, and I will acknowledge his abilities as an orator and wordsmith and pray for him, BUT that is it.

I have begun today to see what I can do to make sure that He is a one-term President!

Why am I doing this?

It is because I do not share Obama’s vision or Value system for America;

I do not share his Abortion beliefs;

I do not share his radical Marxist’s concept of re-distributing wealth;

I do not share his stated views on raising taxes on those who make $150,000+ (the ceiling has been changed three times since August);

I do not share his view that America is Arrogant;

I do not share his view that America is not a Christian Nation; (THIS JUST SHOWS HE CERTAINLY ISN’T UP ON HIS AMERICAN HISTORY! AND NOT A CHRISTIAN!)

I do not share his view that the military should be reduced by 25%;

I do not share his view of amnesty and giving more to illegals than American Citizens who need help; (NO WAY, HOSEA!)

I do not share his views on homosexuality and his definition of marriage;

I do not share his views that Radical Islam is our friend and Israel is our enemy who should give up any land; (GIMME A BREAK!)

I do not share his spiritual beliefs (at least what I think his beliefs are);

I do not share his beliefs on how to re-work the healthcare system in America ;

I do not share his Strategic views of the Middle East, and certainly do not share his plan to sit down with terrorist regimes such as Iran..

Bottom line, my America is vastly different from Obama’s, and I have a higher obligation to my Country and my God to do what is Right!

For eight (8) years, the Liberals in our Society, led by numerous entertainers who would have no platform and no real credibility but for their celebrity status, have attacked President Bush, his family, and his spiritual beliefs!

They have not moved toward the center in their beliefs and their philosophies, and they never came together nor compromised their personal beliefs for the betterment of our Country! They have portrayed my America as a land where everything is tolerated except being intolerant!

They have been a vocal and irreverent minority for years; they have mocked and attacked the very core values so important to the founding and growth of our Country!

They have made every effort to remove the name of God or Jesus Christ from our Society! They have challenged capital punishment, the right to bear firearms, and the most basic principles of our criminal code; they have attacked one of the most fundamental of all Freedoms, the right of free speech!

Unite behind Obama? Never!

I refuse to retreat one more inch in favor of those whom I believe are the embodiment of Evil!

PRESIDENT BUSH made mistakes during his Presidency, (EVERY PRESIDENT DOES) however; I believe that he weighed his decisions in light of the long established Judeo-Christian principles of our Founding Fathers!!!

Majority rules in America, and I will honor the concept; however, I will fight with all of my power to be a voice in opposition to Obama and “his goals for America .”

I am going to be a thorn in the side of those who, if left unchecked, will destroy our Country!! Any more compromise is more defeat!

I pray that the results of his election will wake up many who have sat on the sidelines and allowed the Socialist-Marxist anti-God crowd to slowly change so much of what has been good in America !

I can only say that my stomach is in knots and my brain is swirling in thoughts of how we are in some very SERIOUS territory.

… there is a movie where someone does something and one of the characters yells “OMG you just killed us all”…

In “Hunt for Red October”, the russian attack sub captain has loosed a torpedo, sans the typical fail safes, and when the torpedo locks in on the source submarine, the executive officer says to the captain; “You arrogant bastard, you’ve killed us all.”

How appropriate.

Doctor Zero I always look forward to your posts. It is the first thing I do when I log onto Hot Air. Your writing skill is quite acute. I’ve never really seen anything wrong with them until today. This one sentence I have a problem with:

Hesitation can defeat even superior strength and technical skill.

I’ve always used “Quick decisive action” to defeat superior strength and/or technical skill. In the Marines, we were taught Hesitation kills.

Waterboarding: So awful that multiple journalists will volunteer to be waterboarded so that they can write about how awful and inhumane it is.

Dear CIA,

F**k you very much.

Love,

George Orwell, hardly a conservative fellow, nailed it when he said “People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.”
The current America hating, surrender monkey libtards in charge would do well to take heed, as their power will disappear, along with our way of life, if they don’t allow the rough men to do their work

A few weeks ago, Eric Holder saw nothing wrong with Black Panthers using billy clubs to intimidate voters. Today, he thinks intimidating terrorists with cigars is a crime.

This snapshot perfectly captures the horrid countenance of the Obama administration. It is utterly deformed by undiluted arrogance and hypocrisy!
