‘Countering Violent Extremism’ Is A Perfect Phrasing

Ed Driscoll seems to think this is ‘wussy‘ formulation. Note the accuracy, however, when used in the singular. What have we done against Mahmoud Ahmadinejad? Counter A Violent Extremist (CAVE), that’s what!

I, for one, welcome this refreshing outburst of accuracy in countering the Flemish Menace from my otherwise systematically incompetent overlords.

Via Totten @ Insty, we have more clarity from Dr. Krauthammer:

This is not just an America in decline. This is an America in retreat — accepting, ratifying and declaring its decline, and inviting rising powers to fill the vacuum.

Nor is this retreat by inadvertence. This is retreat by design and, indeed, on principle. It’s the perfect fulfillment of Obama’s adopted Third World narrative of American misdeeds, disrespect and domination from which he has come to redeem us and the world. Hence his foundational declaration at the U.N. General Assembly last September that “No one nation can or should try to dominate another nation” (guess who’s been the dominant nation for the last two decades?) and his dismissal of any “world order that elevates one nation or group of people over another.” (NATO? The West?)

What a cold political winter this is.
