When reports came of hundreds of young men being rounded up by al Queda terrorists in Iraq (ISIS) the inevitable conclusion is that they were being headed to a mass slaughter. These reports are now confirmed. Al Queda bragged about the killing placing these images and videos of other atrocities on extremist web page.
|Mass slaughter in Iraq is just the tip of the iceberg of murder headed to a city or a town near you!|
OBAMA: "The world is less violent than it has ever been."
Thirty two times during the 2012 election Obama used some variation of "al Queda is on the run" or "headed to defeat." This was AFTER the attack on our diplomatic compound in Benghazi Libya were four Americans, including our Ambassador, were killed. Since then things have only gotten worse.
Al Queda and related group violence has spread across northern Africa to Asia with increasingly violent and bloody attacks. Just over the weekend, while a bloodbath ensued in Iraq, 48 people died in an attack in Kenya. The week before, the Taliban struck in Pakistan killing 26. And let's not forget Boko Haram in Nigeria killing 200 Christians in April and kidnapping young women in May.
Over the weekend, Obama was golfing and delivering a commencement address on global warming. No action is imminent to deal with the explosion of threats around the world. Ditto for Secretary of State John Kerry who is hosting a conference on climate change in Washington. Thousands are dying and the number of terrorist attacks is increasing much faster than the global thermometer but there seems to be no urgency for the immediate problem.
In Iraq Obama acted for short term political gain in his first term. In so doing, he squandered the sacrifice of American lives that enabled Iraq to become a stable country. Lack of vision and short term political concerns also led to disastrous policies in Egypt, Libya, Syria and elsewhere. Now we see the bitter harvest of Obama's indifference and short term political strategy. And the worst may be yet to come.
Terrorist Leader: "See you in New York"
The cherry on this sundae of slaughter comes from Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the terrorist mastermind behind the latest Iraq attacks. He was released from prison in Iraq by the Obama Administration. As he left, he told guards "see you in New York." When George W. Bush left office the genie of al Queda terrorism was back in the bottle. Obama has removed the cork and we will all pay a price!
