WASHINGTON — President Obama on Wednesday authorized a major expansion of the military campaign against rampaging Sunni militants in the Middle East, including American airstrikes in Syria and the deployment of 475 more military advisers to Iraq. But he sought to dispel fears that the United States was embarking on a repeat of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
In a speech to the nation from the State Floor of the White House, Mr. Obama said the United States was recruiting a global coalition to “degrade and ultimately destroy” the militants, known as the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria. He warned that “eradicating a cancer” like ISIS was a long-term challenge that would put some American troops at risk.
“We will hunt down terrorists who threaten our country, wherever they are,” Mr. Obama declared in a 14-minute address. “That means I will not hesitate to take action against ISIL in Syria, as well as Iraq,” he added, using an alternative name for ISIS. “This is a core principle of my presidency: If you threaten America, you will find no safe haven.”
Well, except for Ft. Hood and a few places like that… And there was that time when I was … oh, I don’t know, somewhere, but the hard and fast rule of my presidency is: If you threaten America, you will find no safe haven … almost never.
So anyway, Joe Biden had to go and open his big pie hole again, and now I have to start enforcing red lines and stuff.
And, let me be clear; ISISL is not Islamic. Just because someone goes to mosque and has an AK-47, does not make him a Muslim.
If only you guys hadn’t elected Barack he wouldn’t be going through this right now. I mean, first Columbia, then Harvard, then Michelle and the kids. Does everything have to be Barack’s responsibility?
Listen up, Muslim impersonators.
Barack is thinking mean thoughts about you… that don’t involve ground troops.
