Keep calm and carry on, folks: Obama insists ISIS can’t ‘destroy the United States’ and tells Americans to ‘keep things in perspective’
POTUS is a bit cranky. Apparently he doesn’t like any criticism of his ‘strategy’ to defeat ISIS, or ISIL as he calls them. His advice is to keep calm, business as usual. ISIS/ISIL is nothing more than an organization taking up space in the deserts of Syria and Iraq.
‘ISIS is a virulent, nasty organization that has gained a foothold in ungoverned spaces effectively in Syria and parts of western Iraq.’
Accordingly, we need to take on ISIS/ISIL with kid gloves so we don’t rile them up any more.
Obama also strongly defended his policy of engaging with the IS army ‘appropriately and in a way that is consistent with American values
The Obama strategy on ISIS/ISIL is quite simple.
- Stop climate change. It is man-made global warming that has led to the economic conditions that force the impoverished to turn to ISIS/ISIL for a way out.
- Gun control. If we take away the weapons and ammo from private citizens than ISIS/ISIL will have no way to attain them.
- Close GITMO. The U.S. has been the evil enabler of ISIS/ISIL recruitment agencies due to our global conduct.
That’s it. Problem solved. Just keep on keeping on. And how convenient that the solution to defeating ISIS/ISIL just happens to be several core agenda items of the Obama Administration. Almost as if it were all by design.
Can it work? Of course not. Don’t be silly. But then, to be fair, these 3 items were never really intended to. They are merely for consumption by sheep and kool-aid drinkers.
Turns out that ISIS/ISIL is just another Obama agenda item. That being any Islam is good. Take the good with the bad. If it knocks America off its imperialist ‘exceptionalism’ perch, than it’s bloodshed well spent. At least in the eyes of Obama. If anyone thinks that this POTUS will take on muslims to get them to police their own, they’re in la-la land. And the ideologue marches on…
