Ralph Peters’ Advice For US in Afghanistan: “Smite Fart!” (Video)

The global war on terror took an foul turn on Fox News today when the usually well-spoken Lt. Col. Ralph Peters (ret.) made a humorous verbal gaffe in a discussion about the U.S. war in Afghanistan..

Peters was on America’s Newsroom, to give his take on the Pentagon’s recent forecast that “it may take decades until an American presence is no longer needed in Afghanistan.”

Lt. Col. Ralph Peters sounded a pessimistic tone, saying the U.S. won’t be withdrawing troops anytime soon because “we keep lying to ourselves…about the enemy.”

“We’re faced with this malignant cancer of Islamist terrorism, and told ourselves it’s just a skin rash.”

Peters gave his prescription to deal with the cancer:   “We can’t afford to dump money on these problems anymore, we’ve got to smite fart!” he said with gusto.

Talk about your “unconventional warfare,” huh?

Immediately realizing his mistake, he laughingly corrected himself: “Fight smart!

Fox News host Heather Childers graciously offered some cover, “we understand what you’re saying.”
“Yeah, that was interesting,” Peters laughed.
