It looks like Homeland’s Peter Quinn made a harrowing prediction about ISIS – and it’s going VIRAL. The CIA hitman from Homeland explains ISIS’ strategy in a way that puts our current leaders to shame.
In fact the scene when he tells the CIA and US military top brass the brutal truth about ISIS is worth reading in full:
CIA official: You said a program should be renewed. I’m asking is our strategy working?
Peter Quinn: What strategy?Tell me what the strategy is and I’ll tell you if it’s working. [Silence] See, that right there is the problem because they – they have a strategy. They’re gathering right now in Raqqa by the tens of thousands, hidden in the civilian population, cleaning their weapons and they know exactly why they’re there.
CIA official: Why is that?
Peter Quinn: They call it the end times. What do you think the be-headings are about? The crucifixions in Deir Hafer, the revival of slavery? Do you think they make this s*** up? It’s all in the book. Their f****** book. The only book they ever read – they read it all the time. They never stop. They’re there for one reason and one reason only: to die for the Caliphate and usher in a world without infidels. That’s their strategy and it’s been that way since the seventh century. So do you really think that a few special forces teams are going to put a dent in that?
CIA official: Well what would you do?
Peter Quinn: Are you offering me a promotion?
CIA official: I’m offering you a hypothetical.
Peter Quinn: Two-hundred thousand American troops on the ground indefinitely to provide security and support for an equal number of doctors and elementary school teachers.
CIA official: Well that’s not going to happen.
Peter Quinn: Then I better get back there.
CIA official: What else? What else would make a difference?
Peter Quinn: Hit reset.
CIA official: Meaning what?
Peter Quinn: Meaning pound Raqqa (ISIS’s stronghold) into a parking lot.
