Obama: Forget About ‘Destroying’ ISIS, We Just Need to ‘Contain’ Them

The president used to talk tough about wiping out the terror army. Not any more.

A year ago, President Barack Obama talked a big talk when it came to the so-called Islamic State, declaring that the United States and its allies would “degrade and ultimately destroy” the group that had seized large territories in Iraq and Syria.

But this week, even with the victory in the northern Iraqi town of Sinjar and the news that ISIS’s most famous executioner Mohammed Emwazi—best known as “Jihadi John”—was likely killed in a U.S. drone strike, Obama struck a very different tone.

    In the “West”.

  • Obozo is a Muslim. Anything he says is taqiyya.

    Bomb any and all military equipment in any and all Muslim countries.

    Pack up all Muslims and send them to a Muslim country.

    Arrest the mullahs

    Close the mosques.

    Obama is and always has been a loser. Unfortunately, the Democrats are likely to get away with inflicting humiliation on us as long as Republicans continue to form a circular firing squad.

      Yeah if we could only get them real bullets we might have a chance.

    The suffocating, dwindling Embers of Obama have reignited Patriotism .

    Good thing Europe wants to boycott Jewish goods though. I’m sure THAT will save them.

    Hillary was in trouble over the Benghazi attack by al-qaeda since her and Obama said that Osama was dead while GM was alive and al-qaeda was on the run .
    Hillary and Susan Rice knew that the 2012 election was about 55 days away and the chose to blame the terrorism on a YouTube video .
    She actually tried to deny it during the Hearings even when the new evidence and witness proved she cited the Video .

  • What did I say before about this?

    Obama would sooner eat a bowl of wax than destroy ISIS.
