Striking ISIS! It’s a GOOD Thing!

Standard

ISIS, Hammas, AlQueda, the Islamic Brotherhood: All of these and all of the other drooling, irrational forces that constitute the evil known as radical Islam need to be removed from civilized society; indeed they need to be removed from the world and allowed to travel to their lusted after “Paradise.”

These humanitarian acts of violence needs to be carried out before the insanely evil imams and clerics can convince even one more person that murdering innocent people in the name of a jealous, blood-thirsty, possibly insane prophet will make this, in any way, a better world or enrich their life.

Note: If you want to know more about the Prophet Mohammed, start with the: “PSYCHOLOGICAL PROFILE OF MUHAMMAD”  written by Dr. Hafsa ‘bint Sharif, Ph.D. http://www.allaboutmuhammad.co

Meanwhile here in the United States:

“No more boots on the ground” is the pathetic call of those who are willing to allow these radical Islamic animals in the Muslim world to continue running roughshod over common sense, common decency and civilized behavior. “No more boots” is the call of those who have given up on the hope that the United States will ever again become a strong leader and a strong force for good in this chaotic world. Pacifists, i.e., those Americans who believe that the United States is not worth saving and who would allow the United States to be conquered without another “shot being fired,” cannot be allowed to direct our national dialogue or our long-term destiny out of their fear.

You are certainly aware that radical Islam is at war, right NOW, with the United States as well as with every nation that does not bow down to Islamic principles. They fired, if not the first shot in the war on September 11, 2001, the most damning. You also must realize that this and every great nation was founded amid the violence of war, with the blood of patriots and enemies fertilizing the ground at the end of every battle. The United States has never been and I’m confident will never be a nation of cowards without principles. Certain American political forces however are attempting to push us in the direction of unprincipled, cowardly behavior and it would be wise to remember, if they are allowed to succeed, this nation will be conquered from within as effectively as we would be at the hands of a superior fighting force. In the words of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, This is a danger that I’ve been pointing to. It’s not a spin.  It’s not a whim. It is a clinical diagnosis of a pathological movement that is sweeping our area but will soon come to a theater near you.” The Prime minister was speaking to you and me in an exclusive interview with Fox News. Take that to the bank: Radical Islam is spreading and right now, thanks to he fear and lack of foresight by the United States the only one effectively trying to stand in the way of this plague is Israel. Hopefully that will change before radical Islam does indeed come to a “theater near us”.

Big Questions:

The biggest questions in the Middle East are: Do all Muslims, in their hearts, believe that the way to heaven is to kill all non-Muslims? I’m sure ALL Muslims do not believe this but if they don’t, where are their voices? Why are all but a very few Muslim clerics and organizations so quietly accepting of their radical brothers behavior? Are they dead inside, do they not have consciences? Or are they just afraid to speak out because they know that the governments of most Islamic-majority countries either support the murderous ways of radical Islam or are so cowardly they will not protect moderates from the radical elements within their religion?

Surprise!

Yesterday President Obama surprised me and I imagine the majority of Americans, by allowing airstrikes against the religious zombies who call themselves ISIS; I would have never thought that he had the guts to actually call for a strike against ANY radical Islamic force. Up until now I was actually convinced that, in his heart at least, President Obama was one of ‘them’ not one off ‘us’. Why would I think any differently? Since President Obama took office he seemed to be setting us up for a new form of government, one that is ruled by chaos if by nothing else and he has been a master at turning a blind-eye toward the pure, pustulent evil of radical Islam.

But now this!

From the LA Times : “In a statement issued Friday morning, the Pentagon said two F/A-18 Hornets dropped laser-guided bombs on artillery that had fired on Kurdish forces near Irbil, the Kurdish regional capital. The attack occurred only hours after President Obama announced he had authorized airstrikes to protect about 100 U.S. military advisors in Irbil and to halt the advance of the Islamist militants.”

It’s sad to say that President Obama’s actions against an obvious evil have surprised me. This fully justified act of force by the Air force of the leader of the free world should have been expected not surprising. I have to wonder if President Obama would have authorized such a bold act as targeting ISIS artillery if we did not have U.S. assets and people right in the path of ISIS. I believe, however, he might have — and I base that only on the fact that President Obama is a politician before he is a president. Showing some aggression against the obvious evil of radical Islam; while it is apparently against President Obama’s nature, is the politically savvy thing to do.

In fact, just a stray thought, during President Obama’s last two years in office he just might actually start thinking more about his legacy, his reputation. If he does, he might start acting like the president of all the people, not just the president of the people on the political far Left. He might actually start acting like the president of the most powerful, most benevolent nation on earth.

Happy Thought of the Day!

If the 2014 elections go the way I am hoping they will go, Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi will become minor historical figures who can no longer protect the president from making the hard decisions. They will no longer be there to stop legislation from getting to the president — Harry Reid’s desk may suddenly become as empty as . . . well you know what I was about to say.

Pessimism on the National and International Fronts

Standard

The national and world “News” during this past two weeks can be summed up in a couple compound sentences:

The Republicans lost and are trying to justify it while the Obama administration sees their win as a mandate to complete the economic devastation they began during their first four years.

The Israelis are defending themselves against an Arab world that continues to deny their right to defend themselves (or even their right to exist) and Iran continues to develop nuclear weapons while the world is distracted by this Israel/Palestine conflict.

I’m not a prophet but I don’t have to be to see that the United States and the world are in very bad shape today and it will get much worse.

Obama may find a way to ‘bridge’ the “fiscal cliff” for a year or two but it eventually must be dealt with and the most expedient way to do that is to drastically reduce the reach and size of the Federal Government. Can you see that happening during a second Obama administration? I certainly can’t!

On the international front, I’ve implied here that the war Palestine started with Israel is just a planned distraction that is being financed by Iran to take the world’s attention away from their nuclear ambitions. That is admittedly just an assumption but it seems to be working that way. Of course, on a positive note, the Israelis are smart and they still may be keeping a close eye on Iran; the negative aspect however can’t be dismissed by sheer optimism. This ever escalating border conflict is certainly sapping Israeli resources and in the end all they can hope to depend on is aide and support from their ally but . . . since that ally is the ‘United States of Obama’, they might be out of luck.

My parents never taught me the rule about not saying anything if you don’t have anything good to say — I think I learned that from a Salvation Army Major at a bus stop. I do, however, like to be optimistic when there is justification (or at least room for wishful thinking) so let me end with some hopeful optimism on the domestic front.

The Republican party is engaged in a post-election civil war of sorts right now and I hope that by the 2014 midterms they will have arrived at several basic understandings:

1) The truth, when spoken by an unlikable person, might as well not be spoken.

2) The Bible is a religious document and not a set of societal rules in a Democracy. A “Christian” legislator is not only working for other Christians, he/she is working for ALL his/her constituents; which leads to understandings 3 and 4:

3) Republicans appeared (and, in fact were) hypocritical by denouncing Obamacare for allowing the government to get between a person and his/her doctor while advocating interference between a pregnant woman and her doctor.

4) The LGBT community has as many rights under the Constitution as the Catholic Church.

I have been preaching this common sense stuff since 2006 when I began this blog and still, 323 posts later, I haven’t found any reason to significantly change my views.
