Lt Col Ralph Peters On ISIS: “We’re Dealing With a Death Cult” (Video)

 Lt. Col. Ralph Peters appeared on Fox News with Martha MacCallum Wednesday morning to discuss the latest happenings in Iraq and the enemy that we now face in ISIS. In one of his most impressive appearances on Fox, to date,  Peters had a lot to say about the unfolding nightmare in Iraq – and the Obama administration’s anemic response to it.

“This is something that goes beyond radical Islam,” Peters explained. “We’re dealing with a death cult.”

“When you get young men attenuated to these massacres, crucifixions, beheadings,…”   Peters started, his voice trailing off.

“Martha – methamphetamine and heroin may be addictive, but there is no substance on earth as addictive as human blood.”

 “It’s a death cult of massive human sacrifices to a bloodthirsty God,” he said.

He compared them to the Aztecs, noting, “but at least they built things.”

“This is the most destructive force I’ve seen in my lifetime. Even the Nazis didn’t film crucifixions and beheadings for public broadcast,” Peters pointed out.

He continued, “the fact that team Obama and all their elite East coast, West coast supporters don’t understand the fundamental brutality in so much of the world – really cripples our response.”

“If we must use the US military in a situation like this – if we must send the military into harms way – the ONLY correct way to use it is like a sledge hammer coming down on a carton of eggs,” Peters contended. “But this bit of dribs and drabs, coming after the previous philosophy of the Obama administration – prememptive retreat in Iraq and elsewhere – is a prescription for – if not long-term failure, a long-term bloodbath.”

“The tumors don’t go away on their own,” he said.

Peters went on to accuse Obama of lying about his reason for withdrawing all of the troops.

“He is not telling the truth when he says he couldn’t get a deal because the Iraqis didn’t want it. The Iraqis – the Kurds, the Sunni Arabs, plenty of Shia – they wanted us to stay. They knew that we were the fig leaf that helped them all cooperate. And he’s also making it up when he says he wasn’t briefed by the intelligence community about the threat posed by the Islamic State…the intelligence community has been trying to warn him about this for well over a year – about the blitzkrieg in Iraq for months – and the White House just shut down. It’s a closed, hermetic administration that doesn’t want to hear bad news and the bad news is crashing through the gates.”
