After two grisly beheadings, President Obama has finally stopped dithering and plans to swat at ISIS with air strikes and squander more money and men to train local troops and rebels who, at any moment, might toss their American-made weapons to ISIS and run like little girls.
It wouldn’t matter if Obama decided to send 300,000 ground troops to rampage through Syria and Iraq (again). Ten years from now, a fresh generation of twisted Muslims will still be committing mayhem.
The only real fix here is for Muslims in the region to decide enough’s enough, unify against their own lunatic fringe, and stamp it out themselves.
But when do Muslims ever do that? Never. Instead, they just follow our lead.
The U.S. has no grounds for complaint about ISIS when we tolerate — legally sanction and even glorify— terrorism just as brutal right here at home.
Reading excerpts from Obama’s speech today, I got a hearty laugh at these priceless gems:
“We will hunt down terrorists who threaten our country, wherever they are.”
“This is a core principle of my presidency: If you threaten America, you will find no safe haven.”
Buddy Boy, where have you been? Look out the White House windows. Our streets run red, too. Our terrorists are “Defenders of the 2nd Amendment.” Newspapers across America chronicle their atrocities every day. They’re a band of thugs, sane and insane, armed to the teeth, who may randomly mow down adults, children, and pets in their homes and in public places.
NOBODY is safe from being senselessly killed anywhere, any time.
How is this any different from what ISIS does? Are you saying one man cutting off another man’s head is worse than a 9-year-old girl blowing off her shooting instructor’s head with an Uzi?
And here it’s all perfectly legal. Our terrorists only face penalties if they get caught and their attorneys can’t lie well enough to convince a judge and jury they DIDN’T do it.
Why are we in a lather about ISIS when, if they were here, they could get their hands on assault weapons and continue killing, with the added assurance that a good chunk of the population would just shrug it off and defend their right to be armed?
The world is in a sorry state when civilized nations with good reason to fear ISIS look to the United States for leadership in confronting irrational evil.
