A 4th round of airstrikes hit ISIS targets in Iraq, today, although it remains to be seen how much good these very limited “pinprick” strikes are doing. Retired General Thomas McInerney has been saying that we need to hammering ISIS with up to 200 strikes a day. A general consensus has formed that Obama’s actions in Iraq are more of a political solution than a military one.
“It’s clearly very very ineffective to say the least,” Senator John McCain told Fox News, Sunday morning. Some generic Democrat no one’s ever heard of spouted inane talking points the White House (obviously) supplied him: “I think what has contributed clearly to the situation has not been our presence or lack of presence…” (uh-huh) “It’s been the politics of Maliki - his alienation of the Sunni community…”
Oh, that’s clearly it, Ben Rhodes. (We may as well address the actual person behind these idiotic talking points.)
That is totally it. ISIS feels alienated. That’s why they’re crucifying Christians, beheading adults and children – (capturing the blood pouring out of their necks with buckets), raping and pillaging everything in sight – carving a path of destruction and genocidal horror throughout the land. Anyone who has seen the pictures knows there is no “political solution” to be had with these demonic fiends. It’s as if ISIS is starring in their own D-grade horror flick – the kind I don’t watch because they leave nothing to the imagination -sick slasher films with lots of blood and gore, screaming, and crying. But these monsters are real. So is the blood and gore, screaming and crying. These monsters can not be placated or negotiated with. They simply need to be stopped – which means eliminating them off the face of the earth.
In church today, one of the intercessory prayers was for “peace and reconciliation in the Middle East”. I prayed for war. There is no “reconciliation” to be had with these barbarians. I’ll pray that they be converted and see the error of their ways, sure. BUT ALSO for a “strong horse” (to use OBL’s term) to come to civilization’s rescue and blast them to smithereens if they don’t..
Instead, we’ve got a president who tried to end the war authorization in Iraq only two weeks ago – so he could brag to the American people during an election year that he totally 100% ended Bush’s illegal War for oil and no Americans would ever have to go back. I’m sure to the geniuses in the White House that seemed like a winning message for Dems in the mid term elections. Everything is a political calculation with this “Commander in Chief.”
Even our national security. Our Southern border is wide open. They say people from at least 50 different countries are taking advantage of the red carpet Obama’s laid out. Korans, prayer rugs and at least one Urdu-to-English dictionary have been found among the debris near the border.
Has it dawned on America yet that we have a president who has no interest in keeping us safe? None at all? Do the blind now see? Or will they vote another Democrat into office in 2016 to seal our doom?
Will THIS convince them?
Late last week before he went on vacay – the “bear was loose” and available for a brief photo-op for eager reporters - you’ll never believe where.
There seems to be an effort afoot at the White House to demonstrate to the world that President Obama, who has now been getting flack even from the mainstream press for being disengaged – me and you have been wondering where he’s been for some time – in fact DOES SHOW UP FOR WORK.
That’s right – the Bear was loose in his own office for a change.
Obama on the phone with someone really important – a world leader, perhaps!
Old and Busted: The bear is loose at the pool hall or burger joint and yukking it up with “the folks.”
The New Hotness: The bear is actually doing his job!
Apparently, the bear was also loose on the golf course for five hours Sunday – even as the State Department evacuated embassy staff from the chaos in Baghdad.
