Obama advisers say the new version emphasizes that the U.S. does not view Muslim nations through the lens of terrorism.
But the change is a radical shift in the National Security Strategy, a document that previously outlined the Bush Doctrine of preventive war. It currently states, "The struggle against militant Islamic radicalism is the great ideological conflict of the early years of the 21st century."
Limbaugh, America’s number one rated conservative host, thinks the Obama initiative is dangerous.
On his show Limbaugh said:
- ”Obama and his idealists, young whippersnappers, think the United States is the problem. We are attacked because we deserve to be. We have been imperialists, we've overstepped our bounds in the world, it's totally understandable why they would attack us and commit acts of terror against us. So what do we need to do? We need to go in there and build them schools, and we need to get them health care, and we need to talk to them about science. Meanwhile, we do not have the money for this.”
- ”I ask a question? Maybe somebody can help me with this. What are we doing having relationships with the Muslim world anyway? Do we have a relationship with the Catholic world? Do we have a relationship with the Buddhist world? Do we have a relationship with the Jewish world? Well, if we did, Obama's taken care of that. But we don't have relations with religious worlds.”
- ”If we can't call Islamic radicals ‘Islamic radicals,’ we shouldn't call rapists "rapists." We should call them ‘uninvited perpetrators,’ or ‘penetrators,’ if you wish (no, Rush...Undocumented Boyfriends is how the Obama administration would label illegal alien or moslem rapists. Fits). Murderer? Do you think people like being called a murderer, even if they are? Do you think that's going to forge a decent relationship with murderers?”
- ”So the premise is we deserve it. We should have been hit. It's time we face the facts, and to prevent them from hitting us again, we have to acknowledge that. Stop calling them Islamic radicals, stop calling them terrorists, instead build them hospitals. I can't imagine what it must be like to be in a family who lost someone in 9/11 to hear about this guy's plans for the Muslim world. I can't imagine what it was like when they found out that this government was willing to spend $200 million a year in security for the people who blew up the World Trade Center in a civil trial. I can't imagine the anger they must have felt.”
