Mellencamp: U.S. Should not Respond to 9/11 or Pearl Harbor

Singer John Mellencamp on the ‘Charlie Rose Show’ said the removal of the Taliban after 9/11 was wrong, but further Mellencamp stated if the United States knew exactly where Osama bin Laden was it would be wrong to drop a bomb on OBL’s head.

Mellencamp: I think what would have been appropriate is exactly what we’re going to have to do right now.

Rose: What’s that?

Mellencamp: Talk to people.

Rose: Who do we go talk to? Do we call him up and say, “Osama, can we talk about this? We’re not real happy about this. Can we talk about it?”

Mellencamp then said we should talk to “the Muslims” and ask “where are we so far apart here?”

Later in the interview Mellencamp says he doesn’t know how he’d respond to the attack on Pearl Harbor in World War II because he doesn’t really know what happened. He says he’s read books, but he doesn’t know if history is always right.

From his comments on believing Osama bin Laden and Islamists want to negotiate and the best course of self-defense, which Mellencamp says he fully supports if he has to, is to just talk to people that see it as their mission to kill the Infidel. Mellencamp should open a book from time to time and perhaps read any of the number of missives by Islamists the world over. A pacifist he isn’t as he claims, a delusional fool he is.
