ISIS Airstrikes: Another Swindle Of This Administration

Print page

 

obama's  ISIS

ISIS has been ravaging its way across Syria and Iran for months now. They’ve killed, raped, pillaged and beheaded thousands of people, as they’ve brought territory under their rule. Within what is really a very short time, they’ve essentially undone just about everything our military accomplished in the Second Gulf War. This naturally raises the question of whether or not we’re about to see a third Gulf War.

While he was vacationing in the Martha’s Vineyard luxury resort, the Golfer in Chief Commander in Chief took a few moments out from his heavy schedule to authorize air strikes against ISIS, or as they call themselves now, the Islamic State.

That sounded like a good beginning, especially considering that we won both the first and second Gulf Wars by starting with airstrikes. However, when Obama finally returned from his vacation, he said that he didn’t have a plan for dealing with ISIS.

Is It Worth the Effort?

Granted, plans take time to formulate. You’ve got to gather intelligence and look at troop dispositions. Once you know the enemy’s capabilities, you decide what your goals in the conflict are. Then you start looking at the various options for attacking them, ultimately settling on the one which offers the greatest chance of accomplishing your goals, for the least possible cost.

{adinserter emp}All that takes valuable time, even more so if you have to develop the capability that you need to defeat the enemy. But, and again I say but, you never tell the enemy you don’t have a plan for dealing with them.

We’re not talking about beating Hitler’s Germany or the old Soviet Union; we’re talking about defeating a terrorist organization that’s trying to act like an army. The main skill these people have is the willingness and readiness to use violence. They’re not strategic thinkers; and while they do have arms and the ability to use them, their numbers aren’t anywhere near what we faced in the last two wars.

As a terrorist organization, ISIS is more accustomed to guerrilla warfare, not standing up and facing other armed troops. So, the airstrikes we’re sending over there are hitting such massive targets as a lone truck on the road. While it’s great to get rid of that truck of terrorists, that’s really a lot of firepower being expended for such a small target.

It reminds me of Vietnam, where we were expending planeloads of ordinance to kill a couple of guys pushing bicycles loaded down with rice for the Vietcong troops. A lot of firepower expended, for very little return.

Obama stated in his speech about ISIS, “Our objective is clear: we will degrade, and ultimately destroy, ISIL through a comprehensive and sustained counter-terrorism strategy.”

Correct me if I’m wrong, but isn’t that just a bunch of political mumbo-jumbo? That doesn’t sound like a plan or a strategy. It sounds more like an isolated sound bite, created to impress the masses with its profound wisdom and deep insight.

Of course, we need to degrade and destroy the enemy, that’s what warfare is about. You have to degrade their ability to fight and destroy their weapons. But Obama coupled that with the term “counter-terrorism strategy.” That’s not warfare, that’s an attempt to find and neutralize them.

The problem is this; sending airstrikes against a dispersed and hidden target, like a terrorist organization, expends a lot of firepower, for little results. Our military learned that in Vietnam, even if our political leadership didn’t. To take out a dispersed and hidden target, you’ve got to put boots on the ground, dig them out of their holes and exterminate them. That’s a whole lot harder and riskier than sending over air strikes.

So, what we’ve done is nothing more than a symbolic gesture. Are ISIS soldiers getting killed? Undoubtedly; but I would venture to guess that they are recruiting new troops faster than our airplanes can shoot up the ones that we’re taking out. If they manage to get some good anti-aircraft going, we may not even do that good.

The Other Side of the Coin

ISIS has clearly stated their intent to come to the United States and wage war against us here at home. Since they are a terrorist organization and not a true army, we can be sure that what they mean is to perform terrorist acts here in the United States, as an act of war against us.

Considering that terrorism was actually invented in the Middle East, as a means of warfare which would allow small countries to force large ones to do what they want, that’s not all that surprising.

There are reports that ISIS has a cell located in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, preparing to cross the border. In other words, that cell is only one river away from being in the United States; and there are a number of bridges crossing that river.

We don’t know if others are already inside our borders; but we do know that Muslims have crossed the border, as discarded prayer rugs and other paraphernalia have been found along the corridors used for smuggling illegal aliens into the U.S.

Coincidentally (or maybe not), this is happening at the same time that our southern border is being inundated by tens of thousands of illegal aliens crossing our borders. Many of these “children” are actually teenage gang members coming to the United States, taking advantage of Obama’s amnesty.

Media reported that over 300 people whose names are on terrorist watch lists have been allowed into the United States and are still free, awaiting an immigration hearing. That’s in addition to the 3,000 or more gang members who have been set free. Our government is literally allowing criminals to wander the streets and not even letting the rest of us know where they have been set loose.

So, instead of protecting our citizens against attacks by ISIS, the government is harassing and threatening law-abiding citizens. Obama and the Democrats are doubling down on racism, lies about Republicans and the Tea Party and anyone of a conservative mindset.

They are bowing to Muslim pressure that any training of our law-enforcement personnel which states that Muslim terrorists are what they are, is racist teaching. Instead, the government is labeling Christians and conservatives as terrorists and those Muslims as “peaceful.”

I think you can see where this is leading as well as I can. We are living in dangerous times. With our government handing the key to the door to our enemies, we can expect them to attack. How soon they attack and in what manner they attack are really the only questions that need to be answered.

Even if our government isn’t prepared for these attacks, you and I need to be. I am armed 24-7. I keep my internal radar and situational awareness on high, every time I walk out my door. Even though the area I live in isn’t a high-profile target for terrorists, I’m not dismissing the possibility.

As a Marine penned in an open letter to ISIS that’s been traveling around the Internet, “Do you really think you stand a chance on US soil? Do you really think it would be smart to poke that bear? Remember we are armed in the US and I can promise you that the Geneva Conventions will not apply to you. You attack us and there is no mercy. The ball is in your court Islam, we are more than ready to send you to your “prophet” Mohamed…”

I stand with that Marine.

    I suggest ISIL consult the American Indian regarding the expected outcome when we finally decide to play "Cowboys and Muslims".

    • It's blatantly obvious that Obama is a pathetic loser, a habitual liar, and an Islamic sympathizer! Obama's legacy will be as suspected, Failure! Given an opportunity only few have achieved, one would think that he would have used that opportunity to do great things for America, and around the globe, as most American Presidents must do. Not Obama, he wasn't put into office to make America better, he was put into office to destroy America! Anarchy, chaos, divide, and conquer! President George W.Bush said it best when asked his opinion of Obama as POTUS, "He isn't ready!" The fraudulent HNIC has been far worse than amateur! When you consider the trash who put him in the People's House, George Soros, a traitor to his own people (ratted out hiding Jewish families to the natzis, WWll, and then going in with his father to steal their belongings) an Atheist Hungarian Jew! Bill Ayers, a spoiled rich kid in the 60's became a domestic-terrorist, bombing federal buildings, his only regret was, not doing more! The U.N. telling Obama that the only way to institute the NWO, is if you disarm the American Citizens, and help the U.S. Dollar to fail. Then the Bilderbergs, global elitists with greedy evil intentions! Obama is "Public Enemy #1. He has ignored the Constitution, called to change the Constitution, after swearing an oath to uphold, and protect the Constitution! Obama a fraudulent, eneligible, candidate to start with, (he and his father born outside of the U.S,) rushed through the inauguration process, knowing he was eneligible, therefore making the left wing radical liberals traitors, and treasonous, criminals! Some 70 or so, members of the "Democrat Socialists of America" will be rounded up, and executed for their crimes against their own country! It took time, but the nazi war criminals were eventually rounded up and prosecuted! We will do the same to the Democrats! Obama has brought in members of the Muslim Brotherhood, to join his administration! Millions of red-blooded, American Citizens despise Obama! While millions worship him! His days are few! Rise up America! Let's take out the trash!

  2. This is why I signed up . Real news. That matters. We wouldn't have to worry about ISIS here in USA IF 1) just don't let them in 2) secure the border Geez, what's so hard about that?

  3. As usual, obama has contrived the most expensive and least effective way to create the illusion that he's acting in Americas best interest. His real agenda is to reduce the US to a broken defenseless and defeat able third world occupied wasteland. He's playing us using useful idiots that vote for skin color and fairytales instead of wisdom and experience while patriots are shackled with political correctness fines apologies and penalties. His tactics buy time and advantage for our enemies while wasting our resources and distancing us from our allies. Worst of all he's distancing us from each other by mocking Biblical principles. The solution my friends is to fire him and his phony traitorous entourage and let America recover.

  4. found the article by Bill White very interesting and I agree with his main points. as an older woman who is now just educating herself on what is going on both here in the USA and the world, along with survival and prepping, i am amazed at the politicians double talk and standards, their lack of concern in securing our borders, and their distain and PC attitudes, particularly towards our veterans, Christians, and those who support the 2nd amendment. thanks for the information

    Since it has been suggested that ISIS might take out power or do an EMP attack, I have a question. I am connected to the city water. Would water still come after a power out? Would it still come after an EMP attack?

    • cat. mccoy, i believe most municiple water systems are tower/gravity fed for a period of time.

    • Gerald Andres says:

      In a large city, probably not because pumps need electricity. In some small town who have a local water tower that is gravity fed the water will continue for a short time until the tower runs out then it needs the electric pumps to refill the tower. So the answer is you will lose your water feed until electricity is restored. For those with a private well you just need a portable power generator, of course you will need gasoline and most gas stations need electricity to pump gas, so we are back at square one. Doesn't look good does it.

    • For a sort time water would probably be available since it is normally fed from those large water tanks up in the air. Once emptied however these tanks could not be refilled without power. But the water treatment plant or wells that water passes through for purification would also not be operable without electric power. Nor would gas pumps at the local service station so use of cars sparingly is advised. It is possible the local water has the capability to provide limited amounts of water by use of on site DG sets? To say fill containers people brought to a fill station? In winter if heat tracing is used to prevent water line freezing that would also be compromised?

    • James Cooke says:

      The concern about water (and also sewage, garbage, garbage pickup, gasoline for vehicles and generators, electric power, etc.) are an appropriate thing to think ahead on and plan for, BUT infrastructure matters (it seems to me) are more a strategic matter. The ragheads seem more often to aim at targets that damage morale, cause fear and disrupt daily comings and goings. Nevertheless, it seems that ISIS operates differently. So, our infrastructure plants and location need far more attention than the Obama administration has put into play. Definitely more than a few toy cops at the airport!
      To answer the question directly, your best bet is a private well with a manual pump. And a number of water barrels placed around your house and garage (don't forget to treat that water to avoid growing algae and other yuckey stuff). It'll be expensive, but far better than 1)hauling buckets of water from the nearest lake or 2)waiting on the street corner for the FEMA truck to throw you a bottle or two!

  6. grinding pork says:

    Islamo-fascists believe if they are martyred they go to their "heaven" with 72 virgins and meet "allah", huh? ISIS/ISIL/IS if that's what you want, come to the US. Like tens of millions of other American warriors, I will do my part to arrange the meeting for all of you....and I have lots of pulled pork to share!

  7. I do not trust Obama.... If there are purse strings attached to his bombing, then Obama should be watched and controlled if he again fails to achieve the goals he promised !!! Stop the money, if he fails to deliver !!!

  8. Damn Straight. Thank you. Finally I hear about a willing to fight against such atrocities. Most people living don't got a clue to where they stand and the mindset these terrorist groups own. I back up your game plan 120%.

  9. You stated it well. ISIL/ISIS/IS is a group of terrorists, not a real army. They do well against women, children and otherwise defenseless targets but not against a regular army. One can only conclude that obama intentionally allowed, or even encouraged, the expansion and growth of ISIL/ISIS/IS. Since they are the bully on the block, any support to any of the anti al-Assad forces ends up in their hands. Europeans are buying their oil and we're arming them. Do you really expect obama to do anything more than pay lip service to attacking them? Another interesting point to ponder, ISIL/ISIS/IS, who respects no borders and is everyone's enemy, seems to respect Turkey's border and has a warm welcome there whenever they wish to visit. Just look at a map showing the territory they control. They control portions of Syria and Iraq all the way up to the Turkish border, but no further. What a coincidence. Wondering why the MSM and obama zombies aren't talking about that?

  10. James Cooke says:

    I don't know where Mr. White lives, but I find myself doing as he described - carrying my weapons with me when outside, keeping them close when I am inside, keeping my situational awareness antenna turned on 'cause things are way different from what they were 50 years ago. Back then, in my home town, we found out we were number 15 or number 23 or whatever on the Russians must-bomb list. So, we sorta knew where we stood if TSHTF. Nowadays, the ragheads are everywhere. And it seems to me that some of them are really in improbable locations here in the states. But, there are! I ain't nearly as prepared and tough as the Marine, but I am prepared to assist them in achieving their goal - dying for their "faith".
