ISIS Gains Territory Despite Weeks of Bombing by U.S., Allies, Raising Questions About Strategy

For WSJ, Margaret Coker in Erbil, Iraq, Jay Solomon in Cairo and Tamer El-Ghobashy in Baghdad report: Islamic State militants have gained territory in Iraq and Syria despite weeks of bombing by the U.S. and its allies, raising questions about the coalition’s strategy of trying to blunt the jihadists’ advance while local forces are being trained to meet the threat on the ground.

“The strategy’s biggest weakness in Iraq, officials there say, is the glacial pace of cobbling together an Iraqi political alliance between Sunnis willing to join with the Shiite-controlled central government to rebuild a national military force to fight Islamic State more effectively.”

In Syria, fighters from Islamic State, also known as ISIS, have taken large sections of the city of Kobani in recent days, said Ismet Sheikh Hasan, the defense minister of the city’s…

The Middle East Solution

I propose we solve the Middle East violence through a program of Understanding.

Here in the United States we have an abundance of Well Trained, Amazingly Equipped and Overly Funded Diversity Trainers.  (It’s worth noting that many of these same people are cross-trained in Sexual Harassment Education and Gender Sensitivity Issues.  All Added Value as far as my Proposal is concerned.)

I cannot believe it would take much to initiate a Mission composed of the Majority of these ‘Special Operators’ to head over to Syria and Iraq to impose Mandatory Diversity Training.  We can even make sure they wear comfortable shoes so they don’t challenge the President’s ‘No Boots on the Ground’ edict.

Finally, Taxpayer Dollars well spent.

And, Once all sides understand the Value of Diversity… Problem Solved… Forever.

Peace will be experienced throughout the land.

(There could be an obvious upside for those of us here in the U.S. if it doesn’t work out… but I’ll leave that for you guys to figure out.)

There is No Time to Waste.

Isn’t it worth the Life of a Child?

So let’s get started!


We Will DegradeThem!

With all the talk the Obama Administration, and the slavish media, is offering up regarding the degradation of the Terrorist A-holes overseas, and the subsequent deployment of apparently barefoot Special Operations Forces to hurl insults, I thought I’d help out.

The below is for all you Islamo-Fascists out there.

“Hey!”

“Yeah, YOU! You ISISISILISALQAEDA guy…!”

“The black sheets you wear look stupid!”

“It figures you have to drive American Armored Vehicles because you can’t build your own!”

“If you think you’re gonna get a Caliphate I have a Picture of the Prophet to show you!”

“You should try getting a shave and a job!”

“Your mothers never loved you!”

“Your father’s a drunk!”

“Your feet stink!”

“Your Sister is Hot!”

“You’ll never amount to anything!”

“Your Mom’s Mom is Jewish!”

“You smell like a Pig!”

“You’re Dumb!”

There… that should be enough to degrade them.

Now can we get on with the serious business of killing them?

Of course not… that might imply a desire to ‘win’.  A word with no Progressive Definition.  So we’ll stick with ‘Degrade’.

And on another note…

If, as they have in their wisdom proclaimed, the President and his State Department foresaw this Middle Eastern Meltdown coming once we pulled out, then why did they let it happen?  Think about this for a moment.  If they ‘knew’ what was going to happen such as the beheading of thousands, mass killing of innocent women and children, targeting of international journalists… ethnic cleansing… on and on…

Then why did they let it happen?

I think we should be far past any effectual use of the word ‘degrade’.

As James Carville stated just two days ago… “I don’t mind if he looks weak if ten days later he looks strong.”  Well James, The President has had YEARS to look strong.  He has had YEARS to exhibit anything that could be an example of consistent Foreign Policy.  While I know you deeply wish him to be strong, He’s not.  And the real reason for all the inconsistency and vacillation resulting in tumult and chaos is he’s a Socialist.

To be a Strong Socialist you have to be honest… and American’s have never like honest Socialists.


Are Chemical Weapons still WMD’s?

So… Is Sarin a Chemical Weapon?  Are Chemical Weapons still considered Weapons of Mass Destruction?

I recall we found such weapons in Iraq… but were told they were “too old” to count.  That is when the Press taught me that Weapons of Mass Destruction have expiration dates, just like my hot dogs.

Now that we know that Assad used Sarin against his own people last year and several times this year, I’m waiting on the Press to educate me once again.  So far, it seems to be the amount used that matters.

Was it not a big deal because Assad only used a little bit?  So, just a tiny Nuke would be OK?  What if it was a really old Nuke… that we didn’t use much of?  How about then?

I guess The Press are waiting to be educated by the President… so they can then educate us.  At least that seems to be the Standard Operating Procedure.

Wiki might need some education too… I’m sure the editors will modify the entry accordingly.

I suppose the real question is “Does it matter if we all start using WMD’s?”

And, wouldn’t that be fun?
