Tepid war effort against Islamic State

Vancouver Island is enormous, more than 12,000 square miles with 750,000 citizens.

The Islamic State in Iraq and Syria now controls more than 12,000 square miles too. With more than 8 million people in it.

How much longer before it makes a bid to join the United Nations? By what tangible measure is it not a state, as it claims to be?

This summer, the CIA tripled its estimates of the number of terrorists who form the Islamic State’s army, to 31,500. By comparison, the Canadian Army has 21,600 regular soldiers.

    Ah, but President Obama — supported by his corporate media sychophants — declar thattheIslamic States is “neither Islamic nor a state”. This, when radical imams preach to Islamic State soldiers, before battle; when virtuall all ISIS statements follow the Koran; and when the state is setting up governmental functions within its sphere of power. Nope, nosiree. According to Western establishment thinking, the Islamic State is neither Islamic nor a state. Yup.

    • Must be if they say so David!

    • The cult of Islam will continue until there is some type of Islamic reformation.

      You simply cannot have a “religion” which has calls for violence without having some portion of the population following those calls.

      Obama, was brainwashed in an Indonesian Islamic madrassa. He is either incapable of seeing the actual Islamic threat or practicing taqqia to decieve the infidels.

        This is all that you need to know about islam, it will have to be destroyed root and branch for there to ever be peace. There is no reformation allowed in islam.

          Not only that, but Mo’hound claimed the Quran was the transcribed word of Allah, and it is an offense to change even the slightest detail; the passages that incite and justify terrorism cannot be removed or altered.

    They’re not a state until they have free health care.

    Today’s UN would probably grant ISIS membership.

    • They may as well, just call it Palestine and kill two birds.

  • Frau Katze

    Iran is definitely getting involved, as we saw from the report of an Iranian general killed by Islamic State the other day. Not sure how big Iran’s appetite for “boots on the ground” is, though, especially since the Shiite parts of Iraq have thus far resisted IS.

    ISIS will declare itself a ‘freedom movement’ soon, open up relations with Cuba, China, Venezuela, a few minor -stans and the EU, UN and US will panic, feeling left out. They will sacrifice anyone and anything to get in on that. ISIS or whatever they call themselves will be admitted to the UN eventually and their first speech will involve a suicide bomber at the podium. The survivors will cheer and of course blame Israel.

    WW3 has started, and the loser gets Iraq.

    Vancouver Island is very small, very crowded, and has no room for any more people. Go Away!
