As most people know, a power vacuum was created after the USA pulled out of Iraq. The radical terrorist group ISIS now fills that vacuum and is spreading their ideology across Africa, the Near East, and Europe. President Obama, obviously sympathetic toward Muslims, won’t call ISIS a “Muslim” terrorist group. In the meantime, ISIS goes around beheading Americans and our allies. These barbarians recently set a Jordanian pilot on fire in a cage, and then they videotaped it for the world to see.
What does this remind me of?
In America before the Civil War, a black man named McIntosh killed a deputy sheriff. A lynch mob took him out of the county jail, chained to a tree, and burned him alive. When abolitionist Elijah Lovejoy protested this inhumane treatment and likened it to “justice” from the Middle Ages, proslavery crowds killed him.
ISIS is spreading across the world, murdering, raping, and torturing innocent men, women, and children. President Bush warned America about pulling troops out of Iraq too hastily without leaving a peace-keeping force behind. Now we know what he was talking about.
Another Jimmy Carter?
In 1979 to 1981, America faced the Iran Hostage Crisis. President Carter did “everything” he could to bring the hostages home that unfortunately ended with a failed rescue attempt in the Iranian desert. Carter was perceived as weak and indecisive. To many Americans, he is the worst president we’ve ever had. Ronald Reagan finally brought the hostages home after he got into office. What is President Obama doing to stop terrorism?…Your guess is as good as mine.
Iran and the bomb
In the meantime, Iran continues to develop a nuclear bomb. Most Americans seem disinterested in this; and yet, Iran hates us, and they hate our ally Israel.
Killing Osama Bin Laden hasn’t made the world safer. On the contrary, it had emboldened our enemies. Vice President Dick Cheney said we tried the niceness routine with terrorists; it doesn’t work. They only know brute force. In the meantime, Iran continues to develop the bomb, and they’re sponsoring terrorism across the globe.
These are dangerous times for America and our allies. An American woman was already beheaded in Oklahoma by an American Muslim. A decade ago, this situation would have been unthinkable.
The USA needs another Ronald Reagan. Another FDR. Another Harry Truman. Not a president worried about semantics.by
