In less than a week, Jordan has transformed itself from a bit player in the war on terror to a moral beacon of why we fight — because it's ultimately a struggle of good versus evil, and good must win.
As bombing missions took off, with the warning to the terrorists that they were now "meeting the Jordanians for the first time," half of Jordan's air force flew over the humble village of the murdered pilot to assure it what the mission was about.He let there be no doubt, it was about revenge for the atrocity they committed to their pilot.
And, matching the terrorists' propaganda-film tactics, the Jordanians also released a film — theirs, of IS targets being blown away by Jordanian forces, which at last count left 55 terrorists dead on the desert floor.
There's a word for this: victory.
As the West dithers under the weak leadership and wavering resolve of the Obama administration, the Jordanians, however small and threatened they are as a nation, have injected the force multiplier of moral passion into their war effort.
Maybe all the allies could learn from it.Maybe, but highly unlikely.
A pilot writes a message to the terrorists.
King Abdullah, a true leader and a real warrior. Unlike that idiot occupying 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. The King is the kind of leader that true warriors would follow right up to the gates of hell.
