Why hesitate before ISIS?
A new video surfaced September 2, 2014, called “The Second Message to America” showing the execution of 31 year old reporter, Steven Sotloff, the second American beheaded in front of the world by the same ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria) executioner in last month’s video beheading James Foley, American war photojournalist, retaliation for U.S. air strikes in Iraq.
Not a word from this president as he jetted off to Europe, except his continued insistence ISIS should be considered an international threat, and not strictly a danger to America: “We know . . . if we are joined by the international community, we can . . . shrink ISIL’s sphere of influence . . . to the point where it is a manageable problem.” This is extraordinary in light of his statement after the beheading of James Foley, August 19, 2014, in which he referred to ISIS as a “cancer.” Cancer can’t be ‘managed,’ it must be removed or it spreads. This is a president who is a prisoner of his own ideology that the west has been oppressive to Muslims.
Weakness and fear before ISIS
The world sees the president of the United States, the greatest super power on earth, as indecisive and afraid. General Tecumseh Sherman, author and perpetrator of “total war,” knew about war: “War is cruelty, there is no use trying to reform it; the crueler it is, the sooner it will be over.” This president does not have the stomach to do what it takes to defeat ISIS. We need a president serious about defending America and Americans, but he’d rather be at war with coal, go golfing, and do food stamps.
This is only going to get worse. Obama’s air strikes in Iraq do not attack ISIS headquarters in Syria, are a minimum response, and a recipe for endless war. State Dept. spokesperson, Jen Psaki, refused to say America is at war with ISIS. Obama doesn’t “have a strategy yet.” Whether he recognizes it or not, America is at war with ISIS, a radical Islamic terrorist organization dedicated to the annihilation of Israel and western civilization.
The world waits for leadership from America, but Obama does not know what to do. Patton knew what to do as he rallied troops of the 3rd Army June 6, 1944, prior the Normandy Landing (termed D-Day):
. . . no bastard ever won a war by dying for his country. He won it by making the other . . . bastard die for his . . . . The Nazis are the enemy . . . . Spill their blood. Shoot them in the belly . . . . I don’t want . . . any messages . . . we are holding position. We are advancing constantly, and . . . not interested in holding anything, except the enemy.
Does anyone care?
Obama and Left-wing Democrats have unbelievable indifference for endless slaughter and genocide. Women raped and killed, women sold into slavery, women and children buried alive, men bound on their knees shot in the head before wives and children. Amidst these atrocities, Obama golfs and Secretary of State Kerry sail surfs. The disconnect is unprecedented.
How worried are we of another 9/11 on 9/11? It is estimated 1% of the world’s Muslims, or 16 million, are joining this movement to kill infidels for Allah. U.S. Dept. of Homeland Security (DHS) admits loosing track of 6000 people on visas who have vanished in America. Our airports, seaports are not secure. Tens of thousands walk across our southern border. Do we even know the danger we are in? Think Boston.
