At this very moment there are tens of thousands, and perhaps even hundreds of thousands, of Americans who are wondering if the burning of the Jordanian pilot by ISIS will change the heart of Obama to name Islamic terrorism as the enemy. The harsh and even deadly reality is that the president is not governed by a heart that cares nor is he motivated by the barbaric nature of the execution of the innocent Muslim pilot.
This is a man who gives tortured reasoning a new line in the sand. As media pundits on Fox News and even some of the other mainstream sites debated just what Obama would actually say in addressing the extremity of this horrendous action, his words were meek and ineffective.
If one were to watch the nearly unemotional nature that he worded his statement one would be left with the unmistakable feeling that he were referring to the death of a cow or a horse in a country barnyard. The sinking feeling that many of the Muslim nation allies, including King Abdullah II of Jordan, had to be quite dramatic. Again, even in the horrendous death of a brave pilot who had been part of the coalition forces, the leader of the free world was too timid to speak.
According to Breitbart, this is what he said on Tuesday,
It’s just one more indication of the viciousness and barbarity of this organization. And I think we will redouble the vigilance and determination on the part of global coalition to make sure that they are degraded and ultimately defeated. It also indicates the degree to which whatever ideology they are operating off of, it’s bankrupt.
By going over his words, which are never accidental in his delivery, he addresses the extreme Islamic terrorist execution as the “barbarity of this organization,” as if he were referring to a mob hit. Then he compounds it by stating, “. It also indicates the degree to which whatever ideology they are operating off of, it’s bankrupt.” The ideology is clear, because ISIS has stated it repeatedly. It is extreme Islam and every literate person on earth or on social media clearly understands it.
Then Obama, who is never lost to pour more salt into the wounds of the nation’s loyal friends, as he has done on several occasions to Israel, described to King Abdullah, “how he missed a five foot putt in his last round of golf,” according to Community Digital News.
This is nearly as tragically flawed as when the president addressed the media after the beheading of the first American by ISIS by telling the nation how much he cared, but then went off to several rounds of golf. Clearly the president of the United States is more preoccupied with the progress of his golf game than he is in dealing with an Islamic threat of terrorism that he cannot bring himself to name.
In the end, the nation and the world is left shortchanged yet again because what normally would be a true game changer in the war on terrorism is nothing more than a speed bump to January 20th 2017 for Obama. If he would do next to nothing when Americans are beheaded or when Paris experiences an attack or an American worker is beheaded by a home grown terrorist, where is the line in the sand for Obama?
The hard truth of the matter, he has no line in the sand because Obama is simply a man who was elected to the nation’s office on a hope for a change, but the reality is that he had no inner moral strength so the nation has nothing more than a bad golf player in the Oval Office.
