Barack Obama and the ISIS Speech are Hollywood at its worst

By Jim Emerson,  staff writer

Obama’s ISIS speech was well-rehearsed theatrics. Look for Breitbart to release the name of the Hollywood big wig who directed the President, for this was the first time in his political career that he acted presidential to the American people.  As for substance it was embarrassing. His strategy was similar to Clinton’s “Wag-the Dog” airstrikes on Serbia. Mister Obama believes he can defeat ISIS with airstrikes and the introduction of proxy Armies to fight a war that will most likely be directed by NATO. He is using America’s Libyan military tactics to fight ISIS. The kicker is Obama wants to continue sending aid and weapons to the Syrian rebels to fight Assad. Surely America’s smartest ever president has to know that this is how ISIS acquired its supplies and training in the first place. Maybe Barack is hoping that an al-Qaeda/Muslim Brotherhood partnership will join the fight to topple ISIS. Air power is a wonderful thing but only boots on the ground are capable of taking territory. 

Now let’s make two things clear: 1) ISIL is not “Islamic.” 2) No religion condones the killing of innocents and the vast majority of ISIL’s victims have been Muslim.

The leader of the Islamic State is Amir al-Mu’minin Caliph Ibrahim, formally Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the holder of a PHD in Islamic studies.  On 29 June 2014, he announced the establishment of a caliphate and declared himself Caliph Ibrahim. Conceptually, a caliphate represents a sovereign state of the entire Muslim faithful. Doing something in the name of religion is not necessarily a sign of the religious. After all ISIS is doing what the Islamic prophet Muhammad commanded in the Quran. As for the killing of innocents, many followers of the various sects of Islam have been proficient in the killing of innocents and proudly display videos on the net. One day soon, the media may show a protest by American Muslims condemning the actions of Jihadis, but don’t hold your breath. Silence is acceptance and since he studied Islam in Indonesia, Obama knows it’s OK to lie to infidels if it furthers the cause of Islam. If the prophet Muhammad were alive today many of the same people would condemn him as not being “Islamic.”

As I have said in recent articles, American forces will not have a combat mission. We will not get dragged into another ground war in Iraq.

Obama’s speech was purely political. As for the events that led to his decision to go to war against ISIS, Obama didn’t care what they were doing viewing them as the junior varsity of Islamic terrorism. Of course Obama did believe it important to squeeze in a presser about the murder of James Foley before his tee time. The speech was nothing more than a Hollywood production designed to make himself look like a leader and help Democrats running for re-election in November.

Obama’s insistence that U.S. forces on the ground will not have a combat mission is a farce. In the current political climate, Democrats know that coffins arriving at Dover AFB will hurt their chances for re-election. As Commander-in-Chief,  Obama no longer trusts his military in a ground war against ISIS. And he must keep faith with the liberal base by staying out of Iraq. His poll numbers have reached an all-time low and that has undoubtedly damaged his massive ego a bit.

The White House claims this is not a war. But dropping 500 lb. bombs on armed thugs in their occupied territory is war.

Sooner or later, Obama will be forced to deal with it.

 

Preventing Genocide is not A Core Interest of Mullah Obama’s Caliphate

By Jim Emerson,  staff writer

Obama press secretary Josh Earnest was asked by Fox News if preventing genocide of the Christian minority in Northern Iraq “Counts as being in America’s core interests.” (1) He answered that any military option to save the lives of innocent Iraqis would be handled on a case by case basis and that the only lasting solution for the situation in Iraq is political. Well the administration needs either a serious reality check or an enema as the Islamic State isn’t interested in negotiations or political solutions. Until the al-Qaeda spin-off is dealt with the brutality they unleash on their enemies they will not be deterred by token airstrikes or the mindless pandering rhetoric of Misters Obama or Kerry.

The capture of Mosul and Qaraqoush has forced Iraqi Christians to flee with the Yazidi minority into the mountains of the Kurdish region. The Kurds are more tolerant of Christianity and other minority religions, unlike the Islamic State which intends to wipe them out.

Airstrikes
The New York Times reported information provided by Kurdish officials about airstrike targeting ISIS Jihadists in the Kurdish towns of Gwer and Mahmour.  (2) Believing it to have been American planes attacking ISIS, the residents of the towns began celebrating. The Pentagon denied any American involvement, reporting that either Iraqi, Russian or the Turkish Air Forces were conducting the airstrikes. It was also suggested that Iran may be involved in order to assist their Shiite brethren.   

Kurdish officials said the bombings had initially targeted ISIS fighters who had seized the two towns.  A top Iraqi official in Baghdad close to Prime Minister Nuri Kamal al-Maliki said that Americans had consulted with the Iraqi government Thursday night about starting the campaign. The government reportedly agreed and the bombing began.

Another disaster
Obama’s previous military and diplomatic involvement in the Middle East led only to disaster, at least for the existing nations involved, as the head of each country was removed and absolute authority was handed to the Muslim Brotherhood.  These were “solutions” which benefitted only Barack Obama and his Jihadist allies.

Now it is reported that Barack is quietly calling for the removal of Prime Minister Maliki. (2) Mr. Obama has approved humanitarian airdrops for the population fleeing into in the Kurdish regions but will not approve any military strikes till the Prime Minister steps down. By then it will too late.

Update: Two US F-18′s launched a strike against an ISIS position near Erbil, the city which serves as the Kurdish capital. The Pentagon said “ISIS was using artillery [in the area] to shell Kurdish forces defending Erbil.”

ISIS and its caliphate represent a direct challenge to al Qaeda and the rest of the Muslim world

By Jim Emerson,  staff writer

The Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham’s (ISIS) was unheard of by the west until a few weeks ago. The al-Qaeda spin-off/startup rapidly invaded and captured large swathes of Iraq and Syria. Inspired by its successes, ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi declared the captured lands a caliphate.  

A caliphate is an Islamic state led by a supreme religious and political leader known as a caliph. Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi has been declared the caliph, an earthly successor to Muhammad who will rule over the Islamic state. Al-Baghdadi developed an Islamic Army and has enjoyed more success in a shorter period of time than the Muslim Brotherhood and al Qaeda combined. To date the Islamic State has about 12,000 fighters and a war chest estimated at £1.2 billion. (3)

Call for Loyalty
The self-appointed caliph called for all Muslims to become part of his caliphate and spread Islam around the world acting as emissaries under his direction and control. He tells the faithful they have a duty to migrate to the Islamic State and make the newly formed nation a land for all Muslims. His supporters are telling Muslims worldwide to pledge allegiance to the new caliphate and their new leader.  

Muslims are being called to join the jihad against all non-believers around the world. The Caliph has called for an escalation of fighting during the holy month of Ramadan as there is no better time for jihad in the name of Allah. He calls for soldier’s, doctors and engineers to build the new Islamic state.

Not so fast.
The Iraqis, Iranians, Syrian and Russians are not too happy with a Sunni lead Caliphate occupying valuable oil fields in their back yards and Iranians do not like a Sunni Islamic State so close to their Shia State. Rival Islamist groups including al-Qaeda and its allies are not too thrilled with a Caliphate over which they have no control. And the Saudis are getting nervous as al Baghdadi may well pose a threat to their Kingdom. It was, after all, the Saudis along with Obama who provided ISIS with money and arms. The last thing they want is this dangerous, hyper-arrogant killer going rogue.

Obama still arming and Training the Syrian Rebels and their al Qaeda partners

by Jim Emerson,  staff writer

Not wavering from his foreign policy mission of aiding the Muslim Brotherhood to restore an Islamic Caliphate under their control, Mr. Obama has ordered the training and arming of Syrian jihadists to overthrow Assad. Current reports indicate that the forces loyal to Assad are gaining ground against the Muslim Brotherhood supported rebels and the Obama administration’s goal of creating a national Army of at least 30,000 fighters to take on the 200,000 man Syrian Army.

The Muslims in the White House are also providing clandestine support to the Syrians rebels. Feeling emboldened by the Arab spring uprisings in Libya and Egypt, for the last three years the Administration has attempted to use American and NATO aircraft to create a no fly zone to protect the Syrian rebels and their al Qaeda allies (Al-Nusra and ISIS). The plan was soundly rejected by the American and international communities, but that didn’t deter Obama.

In fact, unable to leave Syria alone, Obama ordered the CIA and most likely U.S. military advisors to train and supply the Christian murdering rebels in an attempt to remove Syrian President Assad. Of course the CIA cannot act alone. It requires a Presidential order from either Mr. Obama or the real power, Valerie Jarrett to carry out such a mission. According to a PBS FRONTLINE documentary, the rebels are being supplied from Turkish bases and trained in Qatar in a facility near the Saudi Arabian border.

The terrorists-in-waiting would receive three weeks of lessons in setting up ambushes, raids and proper weapons drills. The rebels were trained to kill off enemy survivors and gather intelligence. Upon graduation they would receive new uniforms and boots. No picture of their benefactor, mullah Obama or a Geneva Convention card. Anyone supported by the Muslim brotherhood and their military arm, al Qaeda, are terrorists and Syrian rebels are no different. (1)(3) Any support for one side or the other in Syria is akin to being between Scylla and Charybdis.

The American population does not support any plan that would squander troops in another senseless war in a country that does not present a danger to the U.S. When the Obama regime proposed bombing the Assad forces after a supposed chemical attack (without knowing who used the weapons), the American people and the international community rejected the Nobel Peace Prize winner’s warmongering proposal. Thanks to PBS, Obama will learn that America supplied arms to the rebels against the wishes of congress that the U.S. provide non-lethal aid only; that is, food, clothing and medical supplies.

The revelations from the Syrian rebels prove that once again, American has been lied to by the Community Organizer in Chief.

Show of Force or War Preparations?

by Jim Emerson,  staff writer

This week NATO released a series of satellite images showing a Russian military buildup near it’s border with Ukraine. The forward bases are Spartan and are mainly used to disperse or deploy assets for contingencies. Most likely this is a show of Force to counter NATO’s shifting of Forces as a display of good faith to support the current government of Ukraine.  

NATO leadership estimate at least 40,000 Russian troops have been deployed near the borders which could likely be within Ukraine in about an hour if ordered. The images show aircraft, armored vehicles, artillery, and forces deployed in positions that are not equipped for long term occupation. Usually such deployments are performed for training purposes but in the current situation they could be a show of force for the benefit of the pro-Russian population, a move to deter NATO, or to provide Air cover if the population should decide to have a civil war.    

Russia is telling the world that there is nothing unusual about the deployment, but the satellite images contradict the buildup along national boarders during time of internal turmoil.  Russian forces are already in Crimea and the well trained forces used to secure the Peninsula are much more professional and more integrated than NATO leadership have seen in the past. If war were to start, NATO would meeting a formidable force. (3)

If the current occupant of the White House knew anything of history, he would understand that the last time Europe and America faced such an army it wasn’t a pleasant trip for those who fought the war.

As for the United States, Obama foolishly promised: “We are not going to be getting into a military excursion in Ukraine. What we are going to do is mobilize all of our diplomatic resources to make sure that we’ve got a strong international correlation that sends a clear message.” The public housing Harvard Law School grad is either bluffing or willing to surrender Ukraine in the name of Social Justice. Most likely he and Valerie Jarret don’t care because the Muslim Brotherhood isn’t involved.

The wild card in this dangerous game is China. They might use a Ukrainian showdown to quietly grab a few islands. (2)
