Rome is Burning Mr. President. Put Down the Fiddle and Do Something.

Let me tell you this. You need look no further than Marie Harf’s comments to understand that the current administration just doesn’t get it.

“We cannot win this war by killing them. We cannot kill our way out of this war. We need, in the longer term, medium to longer term, to go after the root causes that leads [sic] people to join these groups. We can work with countries around the world to help improve their governance. We can help them build their economies so they can have job opportunities for these people.”

US State Department Deputy Spokesperson Marie Harf – 02/16/2015

So to win the war on terror, we need to get jobs for the terrorists? That’s Obama’s answer? That is the plan that he and his intellectual, ivory tower elitists have come up with? His administration adamantly refuses to put radical Islam into the equation. Let’s be clear, people protest over poverty. They hold demonstrations against poverty. Sometimes, people may even loot under the guise of poverty. To my knowledge no one in modern times has used poverty as justification for putting people on their knees, with their hands tied behind their back, and cutting off their heads. To my knowledge in modern times no one has used poverty as an excuse to put a fellow human being wearing gasoline soaked clothing into a cage and set him ablaze. I’m afraid this President, and people who think like him, simply do not understand what they are up against. They do not grasp the gravity of the situation at all.

Radical Islamists are not satisfied with being left alone. They are not content with practicing their religion in peace. They despise the west. They hate other religions, particularly Christianity and Judaism. They interpret the Koran differently than the majority of Muslims in the world, and their stated goal is not only the destruction of Israel, but tearing down the very fabric of western society. Refusing to accept this is ludicrous, as the actions of these radical Muslims speaks volumes about their true intention. Comparing them to nonexistent “radical Christians” or other “extremists” is shamefully feckless Mr. President. Stop trying to make a correlation between radical Islamists and any other group, and take action. A major part of the problem is this President can’t simply do that. He is an apologist. He hesitates to even use the term “radical Islamist”. He appears to be more concerned with the backlash against Muslims, which has thus far failed to materialized, than he is with the beheadings that are becoming all too frequent.

What is so amazing to me is that evil in the past, and have no misgivings about this these terrorists are evil, always took strides to hide itself. Take Hitler’s Third Reich for example. The horror inflicted upon Jews was done so secretly, intentionally hidden from the world. It wasn’t until Allied troops began to take the offensive against the Germans that concentration camps, and the atrocities committed within them, were found. Modern day North Korean prison camps are still hidden, and many people are ignorant of the barbarity that goes on in them. Yet ISIS boldly commits its barbarous acts for all the world to see, emboldened by Obama’s lack of response. They commit savage, unthinkable acts, and proudly accept full responsibility for these actions, and the world watches and does relatively nothing.

How soon before these terrorists strike again in our country? How soon before the United States has its second 9/11? Every single time ISIS beheads someone, they grow stronger. Every single atrocity committed gives them propaganda to swell their ranks. Savages like ISIS only understand one thing: strength. They fear power, and nothing else. When we, the civilized nations of the world, fail to act against their inhumanity, we show them weakness. We embolden them. They turn to potential recruits and say, “The United States is weak. We can defeat them. Look at what we have done, and see how they fear us”. We give them the power over us. Our inaction strengthens them. Offering jobs to them isn’t going to stop them, and it’s literally laughable to think so. Our President and his administration is offering solutions that make us the laughing stock of the world. The only problem is this is not a laughing matter. This is a deadly serious matter that is simply not being addressed properly, if at all.

Edmund Burke, Irish author, political theorist, and philosopher once said, “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men should do nothing”. Evil is triumphing. What are we doing about it? Apparently, we are trying to find employment for evil. But hey, I’m just a cop.
