Mr. Obama thinks he can put his community organizing skills to work in the Middle East to solve the ISIS threat. He wants to “organize the Middle East, the Arab world, the Muslim world, the international community” and “shrink” the “small and narrow” band of psychopaths known as ISIS.
Our listless, detached president, who still has no strategy for dealing with ISIS, said we can shrink ISIS to a manageable problem if the international community joins in. He made his remarks during Wednesday’s presser in Estonia.
“We know that if we are joined by the international community, we can continue to shrink ISIL’s sphere of influence, its effectiveness, its financing, its military capabilities to the point where it is a manageable problem,” Obama said.
Listen to this boring, rambling nonsensical speech which does little to clarify his intent.
“What we’ve got to do is make sure that we are organizing the Arab world, the Middle East, the Muslim world along with the international community to isolate this cancer,” Obama said.
Obama added that the “particular brand” of extremism was “first and foremost destructive to the Muslim world,” by killing innocent citizens and damaging their economies.
“They are falling behind because of this very small and narrow, but very dangerous segment of the population and we’ve got to combat it in a sustained effective way, and I’m confident that we’re going to do that,” he said.
On one hand, he said at the start of the speech that we have to “degrade and destroy” ISIS, but he qualified it by saying the international community and the Middle East have to organize and join in. His words are not in sync with his actions because it’s all lip service.
He plans to community organize the Middle East and he thinks we have the time to do it. One problem he will have is absolutely no one cares what he thinks.
Even the UAE said “Now is the time to act.”
They don’t need to be reorganized, he needs to start leading.
Obama’s goal appears to be to manage ISIS as if they were a small franchise operation.
They need to be destroyed and we mustn’t waste time trying diplomacy or sanctions. It’s absurd. They are psychopathic killers – the worst of the worst of al Qaeda and other terrorist groups.
Compare the emotionless presser to his anger and enthusiasm when he is talking about one of his socialist goals. No listlessness in this speech, just his feigned black accent.
When he talks about ISIS, he sounds like he’s recovering from a bad hangover but not so when he attacks Congress.
The reason people don’t understand what is going on with Mr. Obama is because they don’t understand how a narcissistic personality works. Reality does not interfere with anything a narcissist does.
People think he is sending mixed messages, but he’s not. He clearly doesn’t care and he will do nothing substantive – clearly. He is the all-knowing and we are the peons.
He doesn’t care about ISIS, he wants someone else to take care of the problem. He doesn’t think the U.S. should be involved in foreign affairs. All he cares about is his statist domestic agenda.
Ironically, the European socialists hated our former president and were thrilled to get this peace president. They even gave him the peace prize without his having done a thing to earn it.
The Europeans got what they wanted. Lots of luck with that.
The U.S. media has ignored the fact that 11 or 12 commercial airliners have been stolen from the Tripoli airport. Check out the photo above with the joyous jihadists on their newly-won commercial airliners. They probably aren’t ISIS but they are radical Islamists.
Free Beacon has a good story about it. Don’t wait for the mainstream to report on it, it’s a waste of time.
Islamist militias in Libya have taken control of the planes. They can now use the planes to commit a 9/11 style attack. Check the photos out below.
LIbya was Obama’s and Hillary’s war. Bush can’t be blamed for this one. Bush worked quite well with Gaddafi who wanted to destroy al Qaeda.
Remember when Hillary thought executing Gaddafi brutally was funny? “We came,we saw, he died,” she joked. Who’s laughing now? No one!
Libya is now a failed state. Tripoli is no longer under control. Al Qaeda, freedom fighters, Ansara al-Sharia, Salafists, reportedly some ISIS are running wild throughout the capital. Benghazi is lost. One lone general is trying to save his country and all Obama and the media can do is demonize him as the renegade general.
In mid-July,when asked about Obama’s foreign policy “successes”, press secretary Josh dis-Earnest said, “There have been a number of situations in which you’ve seen this administration intervene in a meaningful way that has substantially furthered American interests and substantially improved the, you know, the tranquility of the global community.” Read about Libya here
Obama thinks he is spreading “tranquility” throughout the world by ignoring threats and pretending all is well as he lets psychopaths run amok.
Obama said today that he will never forget this terrible crime when talking about Steven Sotloff’s beheading. He does not understand that it was not a crime. It was an act of war.
What Obama thinks is appropriate to do is capture the men who killed the two journalists and bring them to New York for a drawn-out trial at taxpayer expense and ignore the terrorists as a whole.
ISIS is comprised of thousands of U.S. and EU passport-holding terrorists who can come back to their home countries and kill, maim, destroy. Think tanks have been warning about this for at least two years that I know about. Obama has done nothing to address the problem.
For the last two decades, we have been admitting immigrants from terror-sponsoring nations, even failed states. Somalia is one. Can we trust any ID we get from Somalia?
Minnesota has “Little Mogadishu” because they have so many Somalis. Two Americans fighting for ISIS were recently killed, one a suicide bomber. They are from the Somali community in Minnesota. Obviously, we can’t put all this on Obama but how about him taking it on!
By the way, did you know that Boko Haram declared themselves a caliphate?
Don’t worry! Michelle is on it! She can start another hashtag war with the celebrities in Hollywood.
We need to stop importing these people for a while and close our borders until we have a handle on the situation.
While David Cameron is looking at confiscating passports of any Brit suspected of engaging with ISIS, Mr. Obama is doing nothing. He’s attempting nothing. He cares about none of it. Instead, he is letting illegal immigrants travel on planes without ID.
There is something else we should consider. Other journalists have been killed by the terrorists. James Foley wasn’t the first. We’re not the only ones suffering.
Obama dithers, delays, consults, reviews, and obfuscates with flowery language. He acts like the new caliphate is nothing more than an EU type of organization.
U.S. officials are saying ISIS is worse than al Qaeda. They are not like anything we’ve seen before, Chuck Hagel and General Dempsey said. All that was not enough to move Barack Obama.
