...and her mistake cost her dearly.
The mistake that Kayla Meuller made was one that is made every day by most liberals in America and this would be the mistake: if you ignore evil in the world, or show that your intentions are pure in the presence of evil, then evil will not harm you. Thinking this way would be a major mistake.
Obama is of this mindset, and so is the rest of his like-minded constituency. He promised us prior to his 2008 election that the world would love us once we showed them that we mean no harm to any nation, regardless of what nation that is.
We can all see how that is working out for us. We are more hated now as a country internationally than we have ever been before. This is 180 degrees out of phase with the promises Obama made. We are detested both by our allies, whom we turn our backs on regularly under the Obama administration, and by our enemies who are emboldened by what they see as a weak United States.
Kayla Meuller just wanted to help those in need. She went to Syria to help the poor refugees of the civil war that has now seen nearly a million displaced and thousands and thousands killed. I am unsure as to why she figured that the violence over there would not descend on her, but that's what she figured, apparently.
What a mistake. 26 year-olds should not be allowed to travel to war zones unless they are wearing the uniform of a branch of the U.S. armed forces. They just don't know enough of the world, and that just because you want to help doesn't make you bullet proof.
It's a pity this poor misguided woman had to die for a huge mistake that is so obvious to so many of us. American tourism to see the great pyramids at Geza in Egypt has fallen off over 95% or more in the last 20 years. Why? Because the word has gotten out to most rational people that Egypt is a Muslim country, and polls indicate within the population of Egypt that Americans are not their friends anymore, nor actually never really were their friends.
Accordingly, in order to avoid being stabbed, poisoned, shot or kidnapped, rational people stay away from most Middle Eastern destinations.
For good reason. And Kayla Meuller chose to ignore those reasons, to her ultimate demise.
