You may have heard the usual litany from those who want us to refrain from acting to counter the ISIS monsters currently on a killing spree in Iraq and Syria. It's none of our business they say when Christians and Yazidis are slaughtered in a genocidal rampage.
James Wright Foley is the first American to fall victim to this plague of evil. He was beheaded in a gruesome video (WARNING GRAPHIC). I challenge those who say we should not do anything to counter ISIS to watch that video and realize that unless we stop these monsters they will be coming here to the U.S. Notice that the killer spoke with an English accent. We will see him again at a school near you?
After learning of Foley's murder Obama made another statement Wednesday decrying the brutality of ISIS. He promised "When people harm Americans, anywhere, we do what’s necessary to see that justice is done. And we act against ISIL, standing alongside others."
That's sure to scare ISIS. Most of the Benghazi killers are still running loose after Obama declared they would be hunted down. Worse still Obama has presented no strategy which is intended to defeat these monsters. The Pentagon has admitted that the current policy of limited bombing is not a plan to defeat ISIS or prevent them from expanding their operations elsewhere.
We should also point out that immediately after making his statement Obama headed not to meetings with his advisers to devise a strategy but to the golf course.
James Foley's parents broke down in tears at a news conference outside their home in New Hampshire. They called James "a martyr for freedom." His father John said ISIS is "a stain on the human race,” he said. “It’s just awful. There simply isn’t enough being done. If more was done, then Jim would be here right now.”
There's not enough being done. And again, I challenge those who would support Obama's policy to look at the graphic image below. It's blood on your hands:
