Yeah, when he starts to talk about "blowback" I get frustrated. He doesn't grasp that Islam has been at war with the West since it's inception. Sure, it's possible for the West to aggravate extremists, but even if we don't aggravate them and we adopt some pacifist stance, they STILL hate us and will continually attempt to take over the West. If not with outright terror, than with demographics (look at their birthrates) right here in America even, let alone places like France and Spain.
OK, I will end my rant.
But even though I think he is wrong on blowback, I do trust he will protect America. He is good on defense.
