The blame America crowd is out in full force.
Bill Maher blamed the ISIS attack on the US bombing in Syria. Some believe that if we bomb them there, they won’t attack us in the States. Maher says the opposite. He also said that our war over there caused the problem but actually, it was Obama leaving without a status of forces agreement that changed the course of the wars we had won, though at great cost.
Maher thinks Iran is fighting ISIS and we only have to sit back with popcorn.
Dylan Ratigan blamed our support of our Saudi Arabian allies.
They will be happy to hear that our administration plans to do nothing beyond diplomacy. I think Kerry should go to Syria, Raqqa in particular, and personally dialogue with them. Maybe he could bore them into submission.
Kerry said: “The events in Paris underscore the threat that Daesh poses to all of us. In the region and well beyond it unfortunately. This is a major reason that President Obama’s announced new steps to take on Daesh militarily. But we all know that Daesh cannot be defeated in the end without deescalating the conflict in Syria which attracts fighters to this battlefield. That will require a political process and that’s why we’re here in Vienna yet again.”
Obama wouldn’t even call it radical Islamic terrorism, but rather, he called it “extremism”. He didn’t call Hollande because he knew he was “busy” and it was too soon “to speculate at this point in terms of who was responsible for this.”
