Islamic State of Iraq and Syria
ONE needn’t be well versed in the sport of boxing to understand one thing: “taking a dive” assures ones defeat, aside from the fact that such machinations are against the rules of the game. Unsportsmanlike, to say the least.
SO too can one describe – and on an exponentially higher decibel – the tepid, the lame ass “campaign” initiated by Barack HUSSEIN Obama against The Islamic State/ISIS/ISIL, or whatever name/acronym you want to ascribe to these rabid Islamic killing machines. Concretely, the Jihadi-in-Chief has already waved America’s yellow belly flag of surrender! Who gave him THAT right?
IN fact, a most incisive assessment of the Bastard-in-Chief’s nose dive came from a fella named E.T. Williams, who calls himself the “Doctor of Common Sense”. Well, he got it going on! Now, some might find his language offensive – admittedly, hardly PG – but never mind, America is on fire and in grave danger. Therefore, let us all place our delicate sensitivities aside and get real. PLEASE listen very closely to the patriotic “Doc”…..
NOW that you have viewed this spot on, yet unconventional, clip, it is time to flesh things out to the nth degree. One dare not dress up this very ugly pig. A national disaster-in-the-making. Worldwide in scope.
AS previously revealed through Rep. Michele Bachmann’s (she rocks…) most recent interview, the Betrayer-in-Chief knew about the encroachment of The Islamic State et al., way before he admitted to its existence to the citizens he is mandated to serve. Not only that, but he added insult upon grave injury by claiming that they do NOT represent Islam! Beg your pardon, they wage murderous jihad (just like all Islamic terror hydras) under Shariah law’s banner, the laws which guide, prop up, Islamic behavior in EVERY sphere of life and politics. Good grief.
.“Now let’s make two things clear: ISIL is not Islamic,” Obama said, speaking from the state floor of the White House residence. “No religion condones the killing of innocents, and the vast majority of ISIL’s victims have been Muslim.”
He added, “And ISIL is certainly not a state. It was formerly al-Qaida’s affiliate in Iraq, and has taken advantage of sectarian strife and Syria’s civil war to gain territory on both sides of the Iraq-Syrian border. It is recognized by no government, nor the people it subjugates. ISIL is a terrorist organization, pure and simple. And it has no vision other than the slaughter of all who stand in its way.”
CANDIDLY, the psychological boost given to jihadists because the leader of the free world is on their side, in juxtaposition to the lowering of morale among those who look towards America to take the lead in obliterating said scourge, dare not be discounted. Couple it with their cult-like belief in Islamic supremacy and subjugation, oh well, a cauldron of hell fire awaits the west.
MORE pointedly, various high level officials admit that the administration has NO plan to beat back ISIS! Yup, the heretofore most powerful fighting force in the world can’t beat back thousands of jihadis, despite their penchant for head chopping and barbaric slaughter. Come on. Bull.
The President said that although he had ordered up options for striking ISIS in Syria, the administration’s priority was shoring up the integrity of Iraq, instead. Syria would have to wait. He also said he would send Secretary of State John Kerry to the region because “We don’t have a strategy yet,” to confront ISIS on a regional level.
To many outside the administration who have worked on Syria and the ISIS problem, Obama’s decision not to decide on a broader course of action will have negative implications for the war against ISIS. The administration raised expectations about altering its three-year policy of avoiding intervention in Syria, before Obama dashed those expectations Thursday…..
SO basically, with The Islamic State going from strength to strength, and with the Commander-in-Chief AWOL, why would anyone believe that the Caliphate is not a (near future) done deal? Concomitantly, why would any western ally trust the leadership of the U.S., at a time when they are leading the west straight into hell. Indeed.
ENTER, the overall Caliphate:
Obama’s plans to fight Islamic State are in ruins as the militant group’s fighters come close to capturing Kobani and have inflicted a heavy defeat on the Iraqi army west of Baghdad and much more. As it seems, the results of what is reported from Syria and Iraq is not only a victory for ISIS, but a defeat for the U.S. This will catapult the image of ISIS across the Muslim globe. As it seems the victory of the Islamic Caliphate is imminent.
The US-led air attacks launched against Islamic State (also known as Isis) on 8 August in Iraq and 23 September in Syria have not worked. President Obama’s plan to “degrade and destroy” Islamic State has not even begun to achieve success. In both Syria and Iraq, Isis is expanding its control rather than contracting.
Isis reinforcements have been rushing towards Kobani in the past few days to ensure that they win a decisive victory over the Syrian Kurdish town’s remaining defenders. The group is willing to take heavy casualties in street fighting and from air attacks in order to add to the string of victories it has won in the four months since its forces captured Mosul, the second-largest city in Iraq, on 10 June. Part of the strength of the fundamentalist movement is a sense that there is something inevitable and divinely inspired about its victories, whether it is against superior numbers in Mosul or US airpower at Kobani.
In the face of a likely Isis victory at Kobani, senior US officials have been trying to explain away the failure to save the Syrian Kurds in the town, probably Isis’s toughest opponents in Syria. “Our focus in Syria is in degrading the capacity of [Isis] at its core to project power, to command itself, to sustain itself, to resource itself,” said US Deputy National Security Adviser Tony Blinken, in a typical piece of waffle designed to mask defeat. “The tragic reality is that in the course of doing that there are going to be places like Kobani where we may or may not be able to fight effectively.”
Unfortunately for the US, Kobani isn’t the only place air strikes are failing to stop Isis. In an offensive in Iraq launched on 2 October but little reported in the outside world, Isis has captured almost all the cities and towns it did not already hold in Anbar province, a vast area in western Iraq that makes up a quarter of the country. It has captured Hit, Kubaisa and Ramadi, the provincial capital, which it had long fought for. Other cities, towns and bases on or close to the Euphrates River west of Baghdad fell in a few days, often after little resistance by the Iraqi Army which showed itself to be as dysfunctional as in the past, even when backed by US air strikes.
Today, only the city of Haditha and two bases, Al-Assad military base near Hit, and Camp Mazrah outside Fallujah, are still in Iraqi government hands. Joel Wing, in his study –”Iraq’s Security Forces Collapse as The Islamic State Takes Control of Most of Anbar Province” – concludes: “This was a huge victory as it gives the insurgents virtual control over Anbar and poses a serious threat to western Baghdad”.
The US’s failure to save Kobani, if it falls, will be a political as well as military disaster.
President Obama boasted of putting together a coalition of Sunni powers such as Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Jordan, United Arab Emirates and Bahrain to oppose Isis, but these all have different agendas to the US in which destroying IS is not the first priority. The Sunni Arab monarchies may not like Isis, which threatens the political status quo, but, as one Iraqi observer put it, “they like the fact that Isis creates more problems for the Shia than it does for them”.
Of the countries supposedly uniting against Isis, by the far most important is Turkey. In the course of the past week it has become clear that Turkey prefer Isis to control Kobani, not the Kurds.
As we predicted, a Caliphate is coming and what only can stop it is to revert to Christian militarism but its rare that Christians today would support Christian Militarism (explained here). While many say that Christ will take care of the problem in the end, what they do not realize is He will only use the saints that are willing to fight.
ONE way or another, and whether next year or several down the road, the Caliphate will be established and not just in portions of Iraq and Syria. The real question is: how many millions, yes millions, all over the world will die before they are beaten back?
HISTORICALLY, on October 29, 1923 the Ottoman Empire – the last Caliphate – was officially dissolved. Nevertheless, the entire Caliphate ruled for 700 years! How many know this? The point being, said aspirations are hardly without Islamic foundation and precedent, nor merely the wild meanderings of Johnny Come Lately’s to the jihadi scene. It’s embedded into Islamic culture/history for centuries, and the “dream” is held by millions upon millions of Muslims all over the world. The west’s ultimate nightmare.
TRENCHANTLY, this go around, one must internalize these core differences: for the first time America is in their Caliphate sights and they have every reason to believe they will triumph.
SIMPLY put, the Muslim-in-Chief is leading the way for the Caliphate from the White House. Just ask the Turks. This is a fact. The G-d’s honest truth.
