Obama finally put some words in towards describing his strategy against ISIS. According to Barack it’s a two-pronged approach – Syrian President Assad must resign and “we must step up against lone wolves”.
Yep. That’s right.
Are you scratching your head right now, pinching yourself and wondering, when is Alice going to emerge from the nearest electrical outlet and inform me that we’re in Wonderland now and we must rush off to meet her new friend Dorothy that just flew in via tornado from Oz.
After more than a decade of disparaging regime change in Iraq, and then blaming it for Iraq’s current status quo, Obama actually suggests that regime change in Syria will stunt the growth of ISIS. It goes without saying that not a single member of the press corps dared to ask, “if Assad is gone, who do you propose rule the parts of Syria ISIS doesn’t?”. It’s an important question. As terrible as Assad is, the one thing he’s somewhat able to do right now is hold ground in parts of Syria. Remove him and who is going to be there to do the same, let alone regain lost territory? Assad steps down, then what?
Alice also has a pet cat…from Wonderland…it fades in and out with a Cheshire grin spread across its face. I like that cat. I want it for a pet. I’d even like to be that cat.
And lone wolves? Let’s say there are a dozen “lone wolves” out there, what does that constitute? A pack. Packs are led by? Leaders, right? The Obama administration’s insistence that each and every terror attack that occurs is the fault of some singular lone wolf is astonishing given the frequency with which these attacks occur. It reveals the fault in their desired narrrative. They’d like the reality to be that ISIS posts things on-line, and some disaffected kid in Detroit, Munich, or where ever reads it, and then commits an act of terror. However, as lone wolf attacks stack up it begs the question: might their be a leader of the pack involved?
Yes, I know, Dorothy says if I click my heels together three times and ask I’ll be whisked off back to Kansas. That won’t happen until November 2016 when we finally get to bail ourselves out of this eight year calamity Obama calls a Presidency.
