This is one reason we need to elect Donald Trump or Ted Cruz for the next president. I bet those two guys have a strategy to defeat ISIS. What has this wet noodle we have for a leader said, “that his administration had “no strategy, YET.” Looks like he is a”slow learner.” He has been in office almost seven years and still just walking around the White House trying to find his way from his office to his quarters, you say?
The West’s War Against Jihadi Terrorism Is Just Beginning

•”I’ll see you guys in New York.” — Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, self-declared “Caliph” of ISIS.
•On May 23, 2013, U.S. President Barack Obama declared that the “war on terror” was over.
•In a public opinion survey conducted in 2006, in Egypt, Pakistan, Morocco and Indonesia, two third of respondents supported the idea of ”uniting all Muslim countries in a new caliphate.”
•On June 8, 2015, President Obama said his administration had “no strategy yet” for dealing with the Islamic State. The Islamic State does have a strategy.
•For now, Western countries are, at best, on the defensive. They dare not even identify the enemy. Rather than cautionary vigilance in the face of danger, today’s Western leaders are choosing willful blindness and appeasement.
Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, then and now.
Saint Quentin Fallavier, France, June 26. A man, Yassin Salhi, decapitates another man, Hervé Cornara, his boss. He lifts the head he has just severed, takes a selfie, sends the picture to one of his jihadi friends in Syria, and pins the head to a fence, next to the black flag of the Islamic State. He then attempts to trigger a deadly explosion in a factory manufacturing industrial gases, but fails. Had he succeeded, he could have caused a regional disaster akin to the accident that occurred in Seveso, Italy, in 1976.
The same day, another man, Seifeddine Rezgui, goes to a beach in Sousse, Tunisia. He unearths an assault rifle he earlier had buried in the sand. He kills thirty-nine tourists, mainly British, and wounds forty others. He is shot and killed by the police. Before the shooting spree, he had sent a selfie, smiling, rifle in hand, next to the black flag of the Islamic State. He sends the picture to a jihadi friend in Syria, just as Yassin Salhi did.
We just don’t know half of what is going on!
