As a humanitarian effort a warning was sent to the civilians near the ISIS controlled oil assets. They dropped leaflets telling them that airstrikes are on the way in about 45 minutes.
Our objective is clear: We will degrade, and ultimately destroy, ISIL through a comprehensive and sustained counter-terrorism strategy.
For blogging out loud)) does Obama think that the terrorist will not read the pamphlets dropped on their heads? Do you think they will scatter before the event? Do you think our President’s thinking is similar to gun control in that if they take away the oil tankers the terrorists wont find another way to kill us?
This instantly reminded me of “The Jerk” movie with Steve Martin. In it someone is trying to shoot him and he thinks that someone hates cans, so he screams “stay away from the cans.” Jackie Mason tries to tell him someone is trying to kill you.
So just replace the actors above with Obama and ISIS terrorist’s. I don’t know who is The Jerk in reality? Could it be our President?
The pamphlets give the terrorists another chance but it does destroy an income stream. But with the money they currently have they could support Paris like attacks for decades to come. With this thinking we will be forced to put troops in. I believe we should have a relentless bombing campaign. And when they are blown to smithereens we send in our coalition of troops to TRULY kill or fill up Guantanamo.
I believe it is a huge mistake to put a minimum amount of troops in action. That only puts them at further risk. After the bombing we need to send in at least 3 times the amount that ISIS has to overwhelm them and to be truly victorious.
Alls fair in Love and War, well not always, but what can we do. We cannot be held responsible for how ISIS operates. First of all the women and children we see in the videos may very well be the terrorists families. And even though I in no way want to kill an innocent child, its just a horrible fact of what has happened in war since day one. As for the truly innocent families, my heart goes out to them, unfortunately if they are not saved they will be subject to rape, abuse, being sold and passed from terrorist to terrorist and the poor kids, I don’t want to believe what they are put through.))
