Barack Obama is dangerously deluded. At his big conference the other day to discuss dealing with extremism, he repeated one meme over and over: the West is not at war with Islam. Terrorists are not Islamic. The day before, some woman in the State Department made the asinine observation that the root cause of terrorism is poverty and frustration over non-responsive governments. "We can't kill our way out of this war," she opined. Yep, just like we couldn't drill our way out of high gas prices, but we did anyway.
Here's a big tablespoon of reality, Barack. Yes, we are at war with Islam -- their choice, not ours. Terrorism is indeed Islamic. All of these Muslims in ISIS, Al Qada, the Taliban and Boko Haram are merely obeying their holy scriptures. They are literally carrying out the dictates of their prophet and following his example. Muhammad too, was a terrorist and mass-murderer. Obama is following the progressive dictum that says reality can be changed by refusing to acknowledge it.
As for the airhead in the State Department, Muslims don't cut off people's heads and burn them alive because they seek a new vocation. Leave it to a bureaucrat to see every problem solvable by applying their favorite panacea. Remember the huge tsunami of 2004 that savaged Indonesia Sri Lanka? Some absurd progressive sent a large shipment of condoms to assist the victims. Yes, when one has been trashed by a tsunami, one tends to get a bit randy. His panacea to every problem: free birth control.
An old saying applies here: When the only tool you have is a hammer, every problem looks like a nail.
