The Obama administration thinks terrorists are just criminals and we are not at war. That is causing problems in the war on terror.
Terrorist groups do not follow the laws of armed conflict but have been using them to their advantage in war with countries such as the United States, according to a report from the High Level Military Group.
This report illustrates a new threat our forces are faced with—a political warfare strategy of our adversaries, terrorists, and insurgents, who fight with utter disregard for the laws of war or human rights,” explained, retired British Col. Richard Kemp, one of the report’s authors.
“They not only ignore the laws of war, but they exploit our armed forces’ adherence to the law,” said Kemp, who commanded Britain’s troops in Afghanistan. “They not only exploit events when our forces kill innocent civilians, but they do all that they can to compel our forces to kill innocent civilians. Then they use the media and human rights organizations to create political pressure against our governments.”
Our troops are terrified of breaking the law.
Congress is trying to stop Obama from blocking new sanctions. If you want to know whose side Obama is on, this should tell you all you need to know. During the nuclear negotiations, the US acted as lawyers for the Iranians against the EU, particularly France.
This really excellent montage comes to us via Free Beacon and it says it all.
