Obama vows destruction of IS in appeal for unity

US President Barack Obama on Sunday vowed that the US would destroy the Islamic State (IS) and hunt down its followers at home or abroad, in a rare address from the Oval Office to a jittery nation.

Facing questions about his leadership and strategy, Obama harnessed the highest trappings of US power to calm a country rattled by last week’s rampage in California that killed 14 people.

“After so much war, many Americans are asking whether we are confronted by a cancer that has no immediate cure,” Obama said in a solemn speech, adding that the San Bernardino massacre was evidence of an “evolving” and increasingly homegrown threat.




This latest nationwide anti-terror policy announcement from the White House comes largely as a result of assuming losses on the other side don't count for much, even when the other side wasn't any kind of real or legitimate enemy in the first place.  The irony of simply forgetting about what happened to Fallujah after the invasion, until it ultimately became occupied by the formerly non-existent IS; now demanding a new massive escalated strategy, is that none of these horrific outcomes would ever have emerged had the US just left Iraq (or Syria or Libya ) 'be'.

Now familiar 'little choice' counter-threats don't really suggest a solution but rather go further down the same beaten road with no end in sight, continuing to 'effectively' recruit for a violent opposition.

Aside from the standard amnesia about who started the war, Obama does make a good point:      

“If we’re to succeed in defeating terrorism, we must enlist Muslim communities as some of our strongest allies, rather than push them away through suspicion and hate,” Obama added.

The most divisive, arrogant, war-waging president in US history, calling for unity, humbleness, and peace. 'The audacity' of hypocrisy.

Of course Ob's just a sock puppet spokesman for the bumbling jews who handle him.  As Putin has made them look bad and weak, this is an attempt to try to regain an aura of power so they can rally NATO and again start calling the shots as they resume their campaign to remove Assad.  With Russian bombers blasting the zio-thugs who are trucking stolen Iraqi oil into Turkey, the US resumes bombing the oil infrastructure in Syria.  Nobody should be fooled.

Of course. "But he's just so likeable"
