Video: Kerry Says US Not at War With ISIS

Ha! I was just logging on to post that I am convinced after reading this that the Obamas/Kerrys of the world are mentally ill. Only the most deluded mind imaginable would think it made an ounce of sense to deny that government sanctioned military killing of others in the interest of destroying a threat to the national defense is not fighting a war.
"This strategy of taking out terrorists who threaten us, while supporting partners on the front lines, is one that we have successfully pursued in Yemen and Somalia for years.” Under different Presidents, of course.
Fill in the blank: "The need for an international coalition is ________________." Wonder how Cameron feels having to share his cajones with "The One."
"Obama is only in positive territory on one of the 12 issues polled: "Standing up for the middle class," and that's only by two percentage points." Call me crazy, but doesn't this lend a measure of legitimacy to the notion that members of the so-called "middle class" truly don't know what's good for them? Remarkable.
At the end of the day, there is no choice but to counter and defeat the brutality these people are engaged in through the use of military force. How the president sleeps at night is beyond my ability to comprehend.
It is the height of folly and ignorance to think that John Kerry and an "inclusive" Iraqi government is the answer to stemming the tide of this fanatical bloodbath. Good grief.
The strategy it seems should be to obliterate them wherever and whenever they may be found before a single other innocent person suffers, but what do I know.
"Boyle suggests that because the Islamic State controls lots of territory and is "administering social services," it "operates less like a revolutionary terrorist movement that wants to overturn the entire political order in the Middle East than a successful insurgent group that wants a seat at that table." Somebody please remind Mr. Boyle that Germany experienced a rate of 100% employment after Hitler and the Nazis rose to power.

Respectfully, I very much believe that's his point exactly; the point being that racial opportunism is quite different from reality, and it's the latter that nobody seems to care about.

Bravo, Mr. Hunter. A great and candid column that was obviously written from the heart.
Anybody remember when the Obama administration curtailed access to public parks and monuments as a political ploy in the context of last summer's budget negotiations? Hmmmmm . . .
