    Be realistic Patty….we can degrade and defund ISIS but what they’ll do is go underground and emulate al Qaeda with a bombing/terror campaign that’s localised and brutal. Their “prestige” they’ve garnered for other jihadis will harmed though as will their operational ability and that’s what we need to start doing. al Qaeda is having issues with ISIS because ISIS is taking recuits, money and prestige that al Qaeda wants. No it’s not a mystery that.out of necessity these kinds of groups have affiliated in the past but right now ISIS is an issue for al Qaeda. al Qaeda is watching ISIS to see what it can learn from it.
    I agree they can’t be reasoned with and we shouldn’t balk at being very thorough and brutal with them. The time for worrying about the “bad publicity” is long gone. Our enemy relies on our western standards of civility and humanity. It’s time to overturn that applecart for them.

    “The analogy we use around here sometimes, and I think is accurate, is if a jayvee team puts on Lakers uniforms that doesn’t make them Kobe Bryant,” Obama told Remnick. “I think there is a distinction between the capacity and reach of a bin Laden and a network that is actively planning major terrorist plots against the homeland versus jihadists who are engaged in various local power struggles and disputes, often sectarian.”- Barack Obama January 2014.

    I like the laissez faire “we use around here sometimes”. Like Obama and the other liberal fops he has surrounding him often rib each other about this “Jay Vee” team that us “rubes” are so concerned about.

    ISIS was the predictable thing in the world but Obama’s world view and rigid political agenda prevented him from acknowledging the obvious.

    You were just on another board making flaccid little quips about helping a poster here “leave the planet” Futurearthropod. Spare us the internet tough guy routine…you progs aren’t very convincing when you put that one on.

  • September 2, 2014 at 7:58pm

    LOL….nothing more hysterical than a prog troll that hides behind the anonymity of the internet and quips about “offing” someone online. What are you going to prog? Morally equivocate him to death?

    No Cheryl..stubborn little thing called chromosomes. Culpeper is male regardless of the silly delusions he’s attempting to foist on the world. He can cut off stuff, he can get implants, he can get drugs, he can wear make up and dresses but those chromosomes never change. He’s a male.

    Look at that kids eyes Cheryl. He’s not all there. What I find particularly detestable with the enablers of poor people like Culpepper is that instead of getting them the psychiatric help they need you instead help them to go further into the madness they perpetuate for themselves. Culpepper sees himself as having some kind of amorphous gender..that’s not a red flag to you?

    Did that “metro” quip hit a little too close to the nerve there futurearthropod? I’ll try to consider your feelings next time diddums.

    There already should be a naval battle group waiting in the area…He doesn’t need congress for that.

    ISIS enjoys millions of dollars a day from the oil fields they’ve seized..why haven’t we bombed them or taken them back? Because Barry has no strategy or will to fight. The enemy is ruthless but militarily very defeatable. All it takes is the guts to go in with a clear and coherent strategy. I hold no illusions that ISIS can ever be utterly eradicated…it will simply go underground once we’ve taken all it’s toys and money away from it. But it’s capability will be drastically reduced. But the publicity we get from sending ISIS into the shadows is very valuable. Right now..even al Qaeda is chaffing against ISIS because it’s drawing money and publicity/recruitment. These groups are watching ISIS and learning from it’s tactics. Dealing ISIS a decisive blow would shake these other groups to their core. You can never fully destroy a terror organization but you can change ISIS from a major player into another defeat for radical Islam.
    The biggest mistake we make as westerners is projecting our thought processes onto Islamist minds. They really don’t think like us. They understand power and force..nothing else.

    Raydoc….For a moment I thought that Barry might be being clever but when I saw that he hadn’t consulted with his war chiefs or met with key congressional leaders then I knew he didn’t have a clue. The Pentagon said “we’re ready Sir”. McCain was my biggest clue…say what you want about him and I’m not his biggest fan but I believe him when he says Barry hasn’t approached congress with anything.

    My guess is Barry will do something in his usual way…when the situation becomes so politically toxic for him that he has no choice. His world view prevents him from taking serious military action against ISIS. His narcissism genuinely convinced him that his voice and presence alone would be enough to change the hearts and minds of our enemies in the middle east. And to be honest…he’s not a very masculine man. When he speaks “tough” it’s always parsed and measured and weak. He’s the quintessential effette liberal fop. He has no bluff. Our enemies know he dithered incessantly over whether to take out Bin Laden. They know Bush did all the dirty work to find him. They hated Bush..but they understood him and were fearful of him. Similarly in Libya they saw an Obama reluctant to do the job that needed to be done. Syria is another example…sets “red line” then he does nothing..heck..he even tried to blame the world for the red line rather than accept responsibility. Even the UK backed out of forming a coalition with him then.

    Russia won’t do a damn thing if we go into Syria just like it wasn’t going to do a damn thing when Obama was posturing for a coalition after his ridiculous red line fiasco. Firstly Russia can’t afford it and Putin won’t risk “legitmacy” by getting into a direct conflict with the U.S. He’ll keep on arming Assad as he always has..with sub-standard weapons and hope that between Assad and the various jihadi groups there that America will feel the economic pinch and more war weariness instigated by progs like you.

    No one expects ISIS to be eradicated. Just like al Qaead, they will go underground and go into localized terror campaigns like bombings and kidnappings but their reach, wealth and capability will have been dealt a serious blow.

    Grow up Charles116….”don’t do stupid stuff” hasn’t worked champ.

    I was thinking the same thing….some intern at CNN is falling over his metro self to see if any of the planes are Malaysian Airlines.

    Ah yes leading from behind in Libya…what could go wrong?

  • [3] September 2, 2014 at 5:55pm

    Actually Kevin…it is not like any other right now. It’s the best funded and largest terrorist army in the world today. The chatter we’re hearing is that even al Qaeda is taken about by ISIS and is looking at what ISIS is doing “right” so it can emulate their tactics.

    Is ISIS the only Islamist threat? Of course not..but it’s the most high profile, best funded and most openly aggressive right now. What would you do? Put on a pouty face and hold up a nicely printed sign with #bringbackourgirls for Boko Haram?

    Nice try sport….

  • [5] September 2, 2014 at 5:44pm

    You’d like that wouldn’t you Charles116? Keep everyone in the dark about the nature of ISIS and in turn…why didn’t Obama do something to stop it sooner?

    I guarantee you were you all over the Daniel Pearl video and how it was all Bush’s fault right? The only thing valueless here is your DNA.

  • [6] September 2, 2014 at 5:25pm

    I wouldn’t call you a tough guy JKook.

    By the way champ…Bin Laden is dead because we had the guts to shake him loose from Afghanistan, waterboard KSM and find his courier which led us to him. Bush did all that champ. Would you have preferred the Clintonian response?

  • [4] September 2, 2014 at 5:18pm

    Damn right Charles116….time for a fundraiser and a party..what do you think?

    Obama had the chance to address ISIS over a year ago. In his all-too-familiar smart arse way he mocked his detractors and called ISIS a JayVee team. You’ll also recall his response to Mitt Romney in relation to the geopolitical threat posed by Russia? Obama brushed that one off with another flaccid quip..”the eighties called..they want their foreign policy back”. Well as much as we all hoped that Barry and Hillary’s misspelled “Reset” button would work…it didn’t. Then Barry tried “I’ll have more flexibility after the election”..it didn’t work either.

    Best summation of Obama and his staff I’ve read in a long time.

    These are his “national security advisers”-

    Valerie Jarrett: Chicago slum lord and political hack.
    David Plouffe: Political hack
    David Axelrod: Political hack
    Tommy “dude that was like two years ago” Veitor: Campaign van driver and political hack.
    Anita Breckenbridge: Another campaign driver and political hack.

    And…last but not least..Ben Rhodes: Failed fiction writer, well known democrat “fixer” and political hack.

    NONE of those people haven anything that even comes close to credentials and experience to advise ANYONE on national security. They are exactly what they are…liberal political hacks who are there to provide cover for Obama and to further the liberal agenda while they have the white house.

    Woodyee I responded in the thread here with RJJ. I agree with you though.

  • [1] September 2, 2014 at 5:03pm

    LOL….Woodyee I responded to you in the conversation with RJJ and I doubled down on my inability to click out of that conversation as you’ll see..lol. For the record..I agree with you. I think it’s quite obvious that Obama has a soft spot for militant Islam particularly where Hamas is concerned. Egytians are very clear about Hamas..it is a mlitant arm of the Mo Bros.

  • September 2, 2014 at 5:01pm

    Woodyee…I accidently responded to you in the conversation with RJJ. I fully agree with you.
