ISIS and radical Islam have declared war on anyone who believes in the cause of freedom.
This is World War III. ISIS knows it. Does President Obama? Does Prime Minister Cameron? Does Chancellor Merkel? Does President Hollande?
As ISIS attacks Paris, Obama wants to ship in 100,000 Syrians who can’t be vetted and Merkel speaks of tolerance.
Obama, Cameron, Hollande, Merkel: the names don’t exactly denote fortitude do they?
Hollande just hit ISIS with 20 bombs and is sending an aircraft carrier to the region. It’s a good start. It’s a jab, a pin prick of what needs to be done. What Hollande should do is invoke Article V of the NATO Charter, which states, “The Parties agree that an armed attack against one or more of them in Europe or North America shall be considered an attack against them all and consequently they agree that, if such an armed attack occurs, each of them, in exercise of the right of individual or collective self-defense recognized by Article 51 of the Charter of the United Nations, will assist the Party or Parties so attacked by taking forthwith, individually and in concert with the other Parties, such action as it deems necessary, including the use of armed force, to restore and maintain the security of the North Atlantic area.”
What needs to be done is not for the faint-hearted. It is what nations do during world wars. It is total war and whether anyone wants to admit or not, that is what we must wage, a ruthless, vicious war.
This is a time for real leadership and for men and women made of steel. Sadly, the West has no Churchills, no De Gaulles, no Thatchers, no Reagan’s to call upon, to take the helm, to lead us all to victory. We are left with wallflowers, when we need warriors.
Israel does have Netanyahu. Notice how ISIS hasn’t hit Israel yet. Netanyahu is a friend, the best of friends and he can help. Putin is a tough customer, a roughneck in a silk suit. He’s just what the doctor ordered in the fight against ISIS. He needs to become an ally in World War III, not someone we’re rehashing Cold War arguments with. We can worry about Latvia another time.
It’s not about jobs President Obama. ISIS has a job. Their job is to kill us.
The leaders of the West are weak at best and dangerous at worst; dangerous because their cowardice and naivete and political pandering are making us all targets.
There is no more time for memorial tributes, for candle lighting, for holding hands in the dark and singing Kumbaya on the Champs Élysées. Those days are long gone. Mourn the dead when the war is over, when the bodies of ISIS fighters are stacked like cordwood on the burning ash heap of history.
Until then, it is time for the free world to arm itself against these maniacs. And, to wage war with all our might and with all the strength God can give us. To wage war until the last breath is taken by the last ISIS murderer on the planet. For without victory there is no survival; no survival for America, no survival for Europe, no survival for anyone in the world who believes in the cause of freedom.
It doesn’t matter what skin color you are, what gender you are, what religion you are. It doesn’t matter what flag you fly or where you born or how much money you have or what your job is. You just have to answer one simple question.
Do you believe that ISIS and radical Islam must be destroyed?
If the answer is yes, you are part of the Allied cause which doesn’t actually exist yet in an organized form. You are a freedom fighter. You are on the side of the angels against darkness.
If not, you are the enemy and you will in due time be destroyed.
There must be an Allied coalition formed, much like World War II. The Allied nations must meet and work out a strategy to fight ISIS. The first act must be a declaration of war on the Islamic State.
Yes, a declaration of war. The Allies must declare war against the Islamic State.
The war with radical Islam and against ISIS has transcended the Intelligence/Special Forces world. While their participation is key to final victory, to win this war we need to use conventional air forces and conventional armies to pound ISIS into oblivion.
It is no longer an effort where America goes to the mall, while a minute percent of the country fights the war. Those days are over. All Americans must participate in one form or another in the final destruction of radical Islam.
There must no longer be any holding back. Any leaders who won’t wage war must resign. At the top of the list are Obama and Merkel. If the President of the United States doesn’t have the guts to fight ISIS, then please resign and go back to the community center in Chicago. Chancellor Merkel is on the road to destroying Germany and Europe. She must resign immediately.
The free world has run out of time. There is no more time for cowardice. No more time for naivete. No more time for half measures. No more time for excuses. No more time for political correctness. No more time for worrying about climate change and safe spaces and imaginary racism when madmen are looting the planet.
It is thirty seconds to midnight for the free world. The clock is ticking.
It is time to wage total war.
