Barack Obama does not want to defeat Isil – yet

America and its allies have not won the war against Isil, and are not even, at the moment, winning.

According to the view of the world taken by President Obama, however, this does not represent failure.

The truth is – and this is no cheap smear – Mr Obama does not want to win the war against Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant – yet. He thinks winning quickly would be pointless and potentially disastrous.


This makes for interesting speculation but seriously I would never credit Obama for such “deep thoughts”.

    I don’t want Obama to defeat IS, either.
    I want the Europeans to do it.

    Just read that piece.

    Obama is full of…nuance. Accidentally he may very well have stumbled upon the right answer. Letting these goofs shoot it out between themselves has the great advantage of a high casualty rate. The downside is endless human tragedy. But a prolonged war sucking the jihadis into a kill zone has its merits.

    Sadly I suspect Obama is not that cynical. And the ladies who surround him would clutch their pearls at the very thought.

      Maybe he’s just loathe to be blamed for any muselman dying except for bin laden.
      And after all, it might hurt their feelings if someone told them that they didn’t land on the moon.

    • He is not cynical. He is deliberate. While ISIS remains thuggish and destabilises much of the region, Iran grows in strength. He has wanted this since 2008.

      And if Saudi Arabia ends up on top, he can live with that, too.

      It’s all about the Islamism.

    Meanwhile, apparently ISIS has not received the memo that it is supposed to become
    a part of an Obama run grand coup to put the Middle East on an even footing:

    Why isn’t Bathhouse Barry being tried for treason? This ugly butt-f*cking muslim who closely resembles a steaming pile of dog-shit is obviously a TRAITOR to America (is execution still the punishment for treason in the U.S.?)

    In that picture, Obama is explaining with his hands that he can deep-throat a cock that is “this big”…

    He’s hoping they exterminate the Jews first. Then it will be time to award them a state.

    Whether by design or neglect, Obama is playing with fire in the land of petrol.

    In every scenario laid out by ISIS and by the ayatollahs, wiping out the heretics comes before dealing with the infidels, and therein lies our saving grace.

  • He doesn’t want ISIS defeated at all. One must not forget where his sympathies lie.
