“He who is compassionate to the cruel will ultimately become cruel to the compassionate.”
It’s 622 AD… the only difference: YOU are there. And it’s being brought to you in Technicolor via perps who believe the phantasmic/psychotic crap they’ve been taught.
The most recent group displaying Islam’s barbarian behavior: ISIS – Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, or ISIL or IS (or Youins [you-ins], Usins [us-ins], Weins [we-ins]…your choice).
The size estimates of this group is in the tens of thousands…which makes them an Army, not a neighborhood gang. And they are VERY well funded. First by the country of Qatar (which used to be more appropriately pronounced “gutter”). Second, and more recently, by three oil fields and two oil refineries in Northern Iraq that they have commandeered… which brings them $2 million a day…to arm themselves and butcher innocent infidels. Oh, and lest we forget…those former Syrian “rebels” that Obama gave weapons/funds to, with American tax dollars? They’re in ISIS…
So, they’re ALL the way over there…and we’re ALL the way over here. So, why should we care?
Here’s a few reasons why:
– They hate all infidels BUT are targeting and butchering Americans, just for being Americans.
– Moments before beheading American James Foley, British Muslim terrorist warned, “Any attempt by you, Obama, to deny the Muslims their rights of living in safety under the Islamic Caliphate will result in the bloodshed of your people.”
– ISIS leader, Abu Bakr al-Bagdadi, said to a GITMO guard before he was released: “See you in New York.”
– ISIS has declared that they are ALREADY here in the States (and with our porous borders, who can refute that?). Perhaps in an attempt to make up for helping Obama arm the Syrian rebels/turned ISIS…McCain & Graham have stated that hundreds of Muslim Americans desiring to fight with ISIS have trained in the Middle East and returned home to the U.S., and at least 100 are being tracked.
That last statement has added credibility because former DHS Sec. Napolitano stated in the past, that terrorists have come over the border illegally (well, DUH).
Defense Sec. Chuck Hagel even gets it. He said that ISIS is “beyond anything we’ve seen.” But Obama, Hagel’s boss…he calls ISIS the “JV Team”…well, after all…we can’t expect him to see things clearly ALL the way from the green.
But since the president must be held accountable for his words…calling ISIS the “JV Team” is like giving them a virtual hug.
There are many ways to give a hug…and Obama is the quintessential maven on hugs.
Throughout his reign of terror, his only foreign policy was: Hug-a-Thug. His treatment of GITMO prisoners, ignoring American Christians kidnapped by tyrannical regimes, arming the Syrian rebels (who have now turned those weapons upon innocents), etc.
It’s Obama’s warm and fuzzy hug. The FLUFF of appeasement. After all…he’s protected on all sides, as Commander-in-Chief.
But as for the rest of us, awaiting ISIS’ promise of bloodshed here…we have a WEE bit of a different attitude toward Islamic barbarians…
And hence, there are approximately 55 million legal gun owners in America (including myself)…and well over 300 million legal guns: Both categories growing precipitously. All responsible and well-adept in firearms handling… and hitting our target!
We love freedom. It’s a precious gift from the Judeo-Christian God…and MANY brave men have sacrificed their very LIVES to preserve it for us.
So, message to ISIS: Go ahead…bring it.
Obama can hug you all he wants, but you can count on this: If you touch our freedom OR our people, WE will surely hurt you.
Shalom through strength…
