[Video embed problem corrected. I’m having lots of problems with my computer (I’ll be getting a new one soon), but am at a loss to know how I managed to embed the wrong video, as I had the correct video on my screen when I got the link for the video embed.]
Videos such as this remind me why, despite parting ways with his politics, I always liked Tony Blair. He is what Obama is not: a fundamentally intelligent person and one who can speak clearly and to the point without prompts, because he knows his subject matter.
In this video, which dates back to January 2011, don’t let the first minute or so of Blair’s fumphering around fool you. As Blair picks up steam, he gets to the point, and does so without hesitation or apology. Radical Islam is at war with us and when we apologize for ourselves — for our culture and beliefs — we lose:
Blair’s pretty prescient, isn’t he, speaking of the West’s culture of apology? It’s almost as if he had foreknowledge of Hillary and Barry’s craven response to the full frontal attack Al Qaeda and pals launched against U.S. sovereignty on September 11, 2012.
Hat tip: Wolf Howling, who has more on the subject, and you should certainly read what he has to say.
