WASHINGTON, November 12, 2015 –Of the coordinated terrorist attacks in France, the New York Times offered this penetrating insight,
“French news media reported that Kalashnikov rifles had been involved in the shootings – a favored weapon of militants who have attacked targets in France.”
Militants? How about using the more accurate term “jihadists,” you know, those fun-loving souls who act, by their own admission, in defense of their most “favored weapon,” the Koran?
Hours ahead of the attacks, the man who once called Islamic State fighters a “JV team” (President Obama) appeared on ABC’s Good Morning America and assured the nation he did not think ISIS was “gaining strength. What is true, from the start of our goals has been first to contain and we have contained them.”
In light of the events in Paris, Obama’s assurances means we are all in grave danger.
ISIS twitter feeds were on fire, gloating over the success of the attacks in France (#ParisIsBurning) and promising to do the same in London and Washington, D.C.
In the meantime, the Obama administration is considering designating the Islamic State’s ethnic cleansing of Iraq’s Yazidi community genocide.
Rep. Jeff Fortenberry (R-Neb.) introduced a resolution, co-sponsored by more than 100 of his fellow congressmen, declaring the mass murder by ISIS of Christians and other religious and ethnic minorities in Iraq and Syria as genocide.
“But [Obama administration] officials counter that IS attacks on those groups, while likely ‘crimes against humanity,’ do not appear to meet the high bar set out in the genocide treaty – that the perpetrators have the ‘intent to destroy, in whole or part,’ an entire ‘national, ethnical, racial or religious group,’” writes Michael Isikoff of Yahoo News.
In other words, the Obama administration views Christians and other minorities slaughtered by ISIS as, well, junior varsity victims.
Don’t expect France or Britain, or the European Union, or the eunuchs of the international community, or the bumbling Obama administration to do anything of consequence concerning the cutthroats of the Islamic State.
“Fellow citizens,” said Republican President Abraham Lincoln, “we cannot escape history… We – even we here – hold the power, and bear the responsibility.”
It falls to you to choose a wise Commander-in-Chief in 2016. One that will clean up the mess created by a confused Obama and his corrupt former Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton.
In other words, voting for a Democrat in 2016 will be a JV move.
