In a brazenly brutal use of force, our State Department has launched an all out offensive against ISIS; on Twitter. Yes, the country with the most lethal military on earth has decided that hashtags are our weapon of choice to defeat a cadre of bloodthirsty terrorists bent on establishing a worldwide caliphate. While ISIS is chopping off heads and torturing children, we’re shutting down their Twitter accounts. I’m expecting the unconditional surrender of ISIS any day now. Can anyone say #Naive Idiots?
We’ve turned the keys to the world’s only remaining superpower over to a bunch of amateurs. These amateurs allow thousands of our own children to be killed every day in our abortion mills, but when it comes to giving the terrorists a dose of their own medicine, our leaders are suffering from acute testicular atrophy. I’m convinced that the world is embroiled in an epic battle of good against evil. Evil is placing no limits on what they won’t do to impose their will. If the good guys aren’t equally committed to prevailing over evil, it’s not hard to see what the outcome will be.
When we fail to protect our children and soft peddle our response to unspeakable acts of terrorism, we project weakness, and evil feeds on weakness. For over 40 years now, our nations’s abortion industry has taken advantage of our leaders’ lack of interest in standing up to a culture of death. Make no mistake; the terrorists see how fleeting our resolve can be, and are emboldened by our tepid response to their barbarity. When they behead Americans and see our President beat a hasty retreat to the golf course, they see victory.
The signs of genocide are everywhere in Iraq, Syria, and Libya. The Middle East is on fire and most of the world remains silent. The world saw all the same signs 70 years ago as Nazi Germany exterminated over 6 million Jews. Everyone knew what was happening but no one wanted to be the first one to take action. This time, with social media and instant information, the whole world can see the carnage. The enemy tells us what they are going to do and then shows us that they are doing it. Our response is to tell them what we won’t do to defeat them and to give them our timetable for doing so.
While I’m not a military expert, I’m reasonably certain that we can’t defeat ISIS by out-Tweeting them. Political correctness and “measured responses” to terrorism will get us nothing. We have the capability to rid the world of ISIS in short order. Without being hamstrung with absurd rules of engagement and limitations on the use of force, our military heroes can get this done. All we need is the political will to make it happen. This is a fight that we can’t avoid. We can do it now or do it later, but we have to understand that the threat will not go away on its own. As a backstop, if all else fails, we can trot out James Taylor again and have him serenade Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi with “You’ve Got a Friend.” That should do it. #TakeThat.
