MSNBC’s Touré:  “Talk to Terrorists!” – and Weekend Links

You know our War on Terror? Well, apparently we’ve been doing it all wrong. Do we want to end terrorism? Then we need to “talk” to terrorists; we need to “give them a job”; and really – most importantly – realize we can’t “kill our way out of this War on Terror”… Yes. All this wisdom from one of the members of the co-host brain trust at MSNBC, aka Touré Neblett, in the aftermath of the Bowe Bergdahl prisoner exchange.

Here’s the unbelievable video.

Note to Mr. Neblett: Terrorists do not have time to go look for a job. They’re simply too busy terrorizing (see what I did there?) by kidnapping, maiming, and generally beheading innocents around the globe. Personally, I prefer the FOAD method, myself. Thanks, though.

Pure jackassery over there and the stupid hurts.

    A big problem with jobs for terrorists is there are only so many openings for morally challenged “journalists” at MSNBC.

    I doubt he would last one night on the streets. When I was a young boy, a buddy and I were confronted by a gang of five others. They were known to be in trouble a lot, often in fights, and carried switchblades. We were on a deserted street, late evening. We expected that this would be trouble. To their demands for money I attempted to respond with some words which only resulted in a punch in the face. Fortunately, my buddy placed a strong hand on my arm, pulling me back. Otherwise, there might have been even rose of an injury than our pride.

    Out this I was faced with questions about when to fight? For what? And, how far is a person willing to go? Is a bit of painful humiliation better than a shallow victory? Some years later, the ringleader of that gang was outside of a bar. He got into a fight. During it, he hit the guy over the head with a beer bottle (they were real solid in those days). The guy slumped to his knees and fell over, dead.

    There are some people with whom you can have discussions. Some you can arguments with and even heated ones. Yet, there are those who only understand one language: the exercise of power. That’s the difficulty with people Neblett. Their arrogance leads them to believe the kind of “fluff” he espoused in the clip. That will, given the wrong circumstances, will get him and anybody with him in a whole lot of trouble.

    This guy hasn’t a clue. Sounds like he has never seen the wrong side of the tracks here, much less been overseas. It has been a few years, but I rember seeing dead wagons picking up bodies in Aden. I saw open Seward in Abbadan, Iran. Those people would just as soon kill you as not and the only education they saught was memorizing the Quran. Shari’a was the only law that applied. From what I understand, things haven’t changed much.

    Touré, progressive Grizzly Man.

    Reminds me of someone else.

  • Kate says:

    We need to simply send him to talk with the terrorists. Over.

  • VALman says:

    Oh, yeah. Leave it to Kate to get to the heart of the matter!
