ISIS is no minor Arab skirmish between tribes vying for power. It poses a threat to the world comparable with Nazi Germany in the 1930s. The world shilly-shallied then. It’s behaving in a similar manner today. ISIS must be stopped while it’s still possible to do so. It’s forces grow stronger with each day that passes.
Yesterday, it was ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria). Today, it’s IS (Islamic State). Tomorrow, it will be ICME (Islamic Caliphate of the Middle East).
Make no mistake, its leaders intend world domination. They’ll not be content with reclaiming the lands of the Ottoman. Their quest is total Islam, just as the Nazi intention was world Aryanism.
Meanwhile, Obama talks. He talks with European leaders; he talks with his opposition leaders. He wants to “…train and arm the moderate Syrian rebels…”. Who are they? Where are they? The truth is they’ve collapsed under the weight of militant Islamic forces in Syria, and are no longer a viable opposition.
The West “trained and armed” the Iraqi army; they “trained and armed” the Afghan army; they “trained and armed the Libyan rebels against Gaddafi”. We’ve seen the results of such “training and arming”.
In Iraq, the army was routed and ISIS helped themselves to the US arms; in Afghanistan, the army regularly assassinates US soldiers and much of the arms end up with the Taliban; in Libya, the country is overrun with armed thugs vying for power and the government has collapsed.
The West is not good at “training and arming” it’s so-called ‘allies’. Yet, Obama wants to utilize the same, failed, tactics that have resulted in nothing but misery and suffering for millions of innocents in the nations the US has “trained and armed”.
