I hear many say that ISIS has jumped the shark with the video release of their burning alive of a captured Jordanian pilot. Even some Democrats want to declare war on ISIS now. We heard similar sentiment expressed months ago when they released videos of the slow, torturous (no compassionate 18th Century French Jacobins with guillotines, these 7th-come-21st Century “extremists”) be-headings of American and other Western journalists. Not so many such calls for war when ISIS was killing Christians and other minorities en masse. Wonder why?
Childlike liberals need pictures to get excited?
It seems so, given that of all the existential threats to the United States, while ISIS is not a “junior varsity” one, a majority of Americans (Democrats all) re-elected a President Barack Hussein Obama who had appeased Iran before 2012 and who since has facilitated the development of a nuclear weapon by the world’s leading supporter of terrorism every year since 1979. The same Iran that took and held American hostages until the specter of The Republican Gipper was manifest. The same Islamist “republic” that sponsors puppets in Gaza (Hamas), Lebanon (Hezbollah), and Syria (Bashir Assad). The same Iranian mullahs that funded and planned the killing of American armed forces and civilians in Beirut, the Khobar Towers in Saudi Arabia and in Iraq. The same Iranian Supreme Leader that ordered the mowing down of young people and others during the Green revolution in Tehran, during which Obama begged to have lunch with the ruling mullahs, while remaining silent about the massacre of innocent freedom seekers.
What’s also so sad is that more people don’t NOW see how Saddam jumped the shark by harboring Abu Nidal, training hijackers at the plane shell in the desert, invading Iran and Kuwait, using gas against Iran and the Kurds, publicly paying the parents of suicide bombers on TV, defying the UN WMD-inspectors and firing on US planes. Saddam almost assassinated Bush41. Thank God that over 5000 terrorists trained to attack the US homeland went to the Iraq War to defend theirs and died at our hands, thanks to the Surge ordered by the grownup named President George W. Bush who stayed the course even after the shiny pictures faded from view.
The Islamist terror shark has jumped but Obama declared the War on Terror over years ago and, accordingly by his lights, surrendered Iraq least year, yesterday called ISIS a mere “organization”, and is in the process of turning Afghanistan over to the Taliban again. Obama jumped the appeasement surrender-monkey shark years ago. In fact, ISIS owes Obama credit for not leaving even a 5000-man residual force in Baghdad, thus allowing them a foothold from which to conquer massive territory in Iraq and Syria. ISIS wants to be what Saddam was when most Democrats understood his threat under Clinton’s Desert Fox and voted by a majority for War in Iraq after 9/11.
Sharks have been jumped for decades by Islamists but some people (all Democrats and Rand Paul) need shiny pictures to get serious, and then for only five minutes. And when our war policy doesn’t produce Connecticuts in the Middle East within 72 hours and no more shiny pictures appear on NBC, they cut and run, i.e. surrender to evil and retreat to their ostrich hole of envy and slander.
FDR, HST, JFK and Reagan didn’t need shiny pictures. Dubya didn’t. Serious people don’t. Instead they stay the course until unconditional surrender.
Some seem to think that only a direct link to 9/11 is the only reason to go to war and that only Osama bin Laden was a threat. Yet before 9/11 even Al Qaeda hadn’t carried out 9/11. Hitler wasn’t involved in 9/11, but they saw the shiny pictures. Stalin killed the photographers near his Terror, Famine, Purge and Gulag, so many Democrats went all anti-anti-Communist since Joe McCarthy’s pictures were so shiny.
Yet a picture of a burning prisoner might be a reason to go to war, while the killing of thousands and a nuclear threat isn’t? It doesn’t compute and who on Earth, including allies, would trust the word of President Obama to stay the course anyway? Which enemy would fear him? Even an oil price-savaged Russia continues its invasion of Ukraine and its nuclear weapons aid to Iran.
Pray for God’s protection until January 20, 2017 because that is the only hope we have with this interloping appeaser in the White House; and pray to God that a majority of Americans will finally understand that NO Democrat can be trusted to defend us, whether there appear shiny pictures on CNN or not.
