All or Nothing

We live in a violent world.  In America we allow over 1 million unborn children to be killed every year by an industry that makes billions of dollars killing them.  A gang of social misfits calls themselves ISIS and terrorizes the Middle East, and our feckless President finally decides to send 50 special operations forces to the area.  He’s fully committed to allowing our unborn children to be murdered in the womb, but when it comes to rooting out terrorism he’s afraid to do what the whole world knows needs to be done.

The media portrays ISIS as 10 feet tall and indestructible.  In reality, they’re nothing but a bunch of losers killing innocent people with stolen weapons.  The U.S military is the most lethal fighting force in the world.  If their Commander in Chief would allow them to do what needs to be done, ISIS would be wiped out in short order and would crumple under the overwhelming use of force our military could bring to bear.

While we allow thousands of our unborn children to be killed every day, ISIS is raping and murdering women, crucifying children, and coming up with new and more brutal ways to kill anyone who won’t buy into their insane ideology.  The President’s plan without a plan to defeat ISIS consists of half measures and no commitment to getting the job done.  His plan is to do just enough to finish his term before the Middle East totally collapses, and handing the heavy lifting off to his successor.  As far as he is concerned, the reality that ISIS’s ultimate goal is to spread terrorism across America, isn’t his problem.

In life our choices are all or nothing when it comes to accomplishing any task.  Half measures will allow you to delay the inevitable tough choices, but at some point you will have to make the call; all or nothing.  Most of the choices we have to make will not be life or death decisions, but the principle applies, none the less.  We can look the other way as we allow our unborn children to be killed and we can pretend that terrorists an ocean away can’t reach us, but the problems still persist and won’t go away on their own.

Sending 50 special operators to Syria and Iraq does nothing but place our military heroes in harm’s way in order to make a political statement and give the Administration the ‘optics’ that it wants.  While 50 of our special operators could quickly dispatch 10 times as many ISIS thugs, they need to be deployed in sufficient numbers to render ISIS extinct and to be home in time to spend Christmas with their families.  If America is not in this to win it, we need to do nothing.


The worst SOS in our history

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.
