What horror is next for American woman held by ISIS?

We’ve known for some time that ISIS has been holding an American woman hostage. And it seems the mainstream media are finally giving this attention.

As reported by Yahoo News, “President Barack Obama says the U.S. is doing everything in its power to try to rescue an American woman being held by Islamic State militants. A day after a Japanese journalist held by the militants was purportedly beheaded, Obama says the U.S. and its allies are deploying all available tools to identify a 26-year-old U.S. aid worker’s location. He called her captivity heartbreaking.”

“The woman was captured last year in Syria while working for aid groups. U.S. officials have asked that the woman not be identified out of fears for her safety. Obama says he has watched videos of hostages being beheaded. He says “the terrible stuff that’s happening” is part of the reason why the U.S. has to be aggressive in going after Islamic State terrorists.”

I find it unconscionable that President Obama refers to the savage and barbaric beheadings as “the terrible stuff that’s happening.” Downplaying the actions of ISIS is commonplace for the Obama administration. At what point do President Obama and his administration admit this is a serious issue and not just another episode of a bad reality show?

As former Secretary of Defense Gates stated, “President Barack Obama’s goal to destroy the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant is “unrealistic“ and “unattainable” with the means he has approved so far. As Politico reports, “Appearing on NBC’s “Meet the Press” Sunday, the former Pentagon chief under both Obama and President George W. Bush said U.S. forces should not focus entirely on eradicating the terrorist group but should create an operation that contains the spread of ISIL militants and “denies them the ability to hang onto territory.”

What SecDef Gates was addressing was the attempt to ensure national security with rhetorical speeches rather than sound strategy. Last year when President Obama came out and delivered his speech regarding his ISIS strategy, those of us who understood the military knew it had no possibility of success – “not a snowball’s chance in hell.”

That evening I wrote my assessment of Obama’s ISIS speech — because it was certainly not a strategic vision. It would have been better if Obama had gone before the joint session of the U.S. Congress and made his point to the representatives of the American people.

It’s been little more than a year since the infamous “jayvee” statement when ISIS was only at a strength of 3,000.

Those who throw words out like degrade, defeat and destroy have no idea what those words actually mean — and what it will take to bring them to fruition. You cannot destroy an enemy from 30,000 feet. But leadership is about humility. And the failure of Barack Obama to say the simple words “I was wrong” means that under this president, we shall never stem the growth of ISIS.

No, I’m not a defeatist but a realist. We have the wrong person in the position of Commander-in-Chief at this critical time. I’m quite sure if we were to study history we’d see the same in the years when Britain was under the failed leadership of Sir Neville Chamberlain.

“The president has set an ambitious and, I think under current circumstances, an unrealistic goal when he talks about our intent being to destroy ISIS,” Gates said. “With the means he has approved so far, I think that’s an unattainable objective.” And, he said, special forces will be needed in Iraq and Syria to assist with the airstrikes that are being conducted by the U.S. and its allies. A “re-invasion of Iraq with large ground forces is a false set of options,” Gates said, but “a few hundred troops” should be stationed in the region.”

And if the situation in the Middle East with ISIS isn’t enough, just look at what the toy “reset button” has meant for Ukraine.

America voted for “hope and change” and even in the face of failure, reelected it once again! As one Rev. Jeremiah Wright stated, “the chickens have come home to roost.”

Dear Americans, do NOT go to ANY of these crap hole countries. You are just asking to get kidnapped and beheaded… If ISIS comes here and kills you I will feel sorry for you, but you go over there for ANY reason, NOT so much.. Stay home…

A lot of these people have been over there before a lot of this started. They were kidnapped probably some time in the last couple of years. And when we trade 5 terrorist for one deserter and we will not help our own people. Even if they try to rescue her Obama will let them know when and were.

You have zero understanding of the Islamic State or their goals or intentions. You seem to believe the false liberal narrative that they are protecting their homelands from Western Imperial Aggression. Nothing could be more false. They believe in endless warfare until the whole human race puts it’s head to the ground 5 times a day. We absolutely can not share the Earth with these people.

Elka

I’m surprised at the number of people who believe this violence is a result of Western involvement and occupation in these lands. These groups are interested in making a worldwide Islamic caliphate. They hate the West for what it stands for. They see America as a “Christian” nation that produces a lot of immorality and would desire us destroyed for that alone.

You and I are on the very same page, my brother…Violent Islam only understands one language, and unless we start speaking that language, there will be no end to the unbridled violence and evil that is paramount to this curse on humanity. What I am saying is you can’t coexist with people who want to kill you. Islam is already at war with America, Israel, and the West, especially Jews and Christians. Anyone who doesn’t see that just isn’t paying attention. Islam teaches the hatred and murder that ISIS, Boko Haram, Hamas, Hezbollah. Al Qaeda, The Muslim Brotherhood, and every… Read more »

Apologies, I completely misunderstood your original comment. I initially interpreted it as – “it’s America’s fault for invading the Middle East in the first place blah,blah,blah.” In fact, you seem to understand completely.

Nannette McGowan

I think jy kelly’s point was that nobody should go to an ISIS/ISIL held area or any Islamic war zone as an “aid worker” at this time because they are unlikely to be able to give any aid as a target of Islamists. It would be equivalent to a Jew going to Germany to give aid to Holocaust victims in WWII.

You are correct ma’am…. Exactly what I was saying, thank you…

And if you look at the Daily Mail, they have documented that aid from the UN is being sent to ISIS rebels…..hmmm
And the ISIS rebels killed hundreds of Palestinian refugees in Syria, Libya, and Lebanon ….You don’t hear about that in the new either. It’s all Israel’s fault…./s
Now there is something we can cut from the budget. NOT A DIME TO THE UN ..

And thank you Col West. So wish the media would give you a louder voice unlike the RINOs who run the R party.

Stay in the fight sir…!

You are so right about the UN, cajun_2. Control of the UN is held by dictators and tyrants from countries with the worst civil rights abuses and it’s a huge waste of U.S. taxpayers’ dollars to be a part of it. I recently read that the UN leadership was demanding a really expensive remodel and upgrade of the UN headquarters in NYC to be paid for entirely by the U.S. It’s not enough that we have already given them the building, pay for all of its maintenance but now they want massive improvements, too. It’s time to oust them from… Read more »

I wouldn’t go there, but if I was ever being held by animals like these, I would prefer my country bombed them and me out of existence rather than live undergoing their torture and eventual death at their hands.

ISIS has effectively removed itself from civilization. The world must, for teh sake of civilization, adopt a strategy and an attitude that will allow us to be rid of these barbarians. Rules of war and compassion are for those who respect them. For those who do not we should fight on their terms: heads on pikes, ruthless obliteration, the same mercy they show their captives.

Hopefully Jordan will follow through on their execution threats and do it publicly. But that may just lead to a tit-for-tat escalation by these barbarian Muslims.

Too bad we don’t have leaders who fear the Lord. No person with a conscience could let this go on and not do everything in their power to stop it. Obama’s response has been luke warm at best. It is pathetic. How he sleeps at night I don’t understand.

Fiveseven

That is a very good point, grace. One of the most terrible results of the Left’s attack on religion is they’ve removed the people’s moral compass. When everybody is “good” just by being “nice” to others and not following the moral code set by something like the Bible, people have no fear of consequences of their actions, no sense of community, no vision of anything beyond their immediate worldly needs. I think that’s at the heart of what’s plaguing this country today.

Turkey is a big game player here. Turkey is talking to Iran. Turkey wants Syria and Iran wants Iraq. Daesh (ISIS) is trying to establish caliphate which includes 10 countries and the ones that need to fall are Jordan, Israel, Syria, Iraq, Egypt, Saudi Arabia and libya. Look at those that have changed regimes and now Israel, Saudi, and Jordan are in the spotlight. Egypt did a turn around and booted out muslim brotherhood but is still shaky. Israel is being attacked by BHO’s organizers to sway the vote against BiBI next month. Bagdaddi wants to be Caliph but an… Read more »

Obama is a Muslim and an Islamic supporter and follower so what can one expect. People are just a number and when are Americans going to understand that. All are dispensable. That is how the federal government looks at us and treats us from the federal government on down and we Americans sit back and allow it all to happen.

I wouldn’t go as far to call him a Muslim, but he has made many positive comments about Islam and far too many negative comments about Christianity (and he claims to be a Christian). Something doesn’t add up.

Please post the link where the president has said ANYTHING negative about Christianity. ..thanks

Elka

Google it. There are plenty. Obama has consistently put down biblical Christianity in favor of a Christianity of his own liking and choosing which doesn’t jive with thousands of years of orthodox Christian faith. Here are a few examples. April 2008 – Obama speaks disrespectfully of Christians, saying they “cling to guns or religion” and have an “antipathy to people who aren’t like them.” November 2010 – Obama misquotes the National Motto, saying it is “E pluribus unum” rather than “In God We Trust” as established by federal law.

February 2012 – The Obama administration makes effulgent apologies for Korans being burned by the U.

By Victoria Jackson Before you read this List of Facts proving that Obama wants to rid the United States/world of Christianity, let’s remember this quote at the United Nations General Assembly in September 2012 when Obama said, “The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.” Wallbuilders proves Obama is anti-Catholic, anti-Protestant, and anti-religious Jews, so, in summary… Read more »

The president needs to step up and say “We do not care about the middle east” or give us an actual plan that all of his military advisers say will work. I do not recall anything he has done in the last 6 years except ram rod the ACA down Americans throat. He is like a bad phone contract, I can’t wait until the 2 years run out so we can switch and hopefully get someone in there who is not afraid to do the job.

These comments are ignorant! So quick to sacrifice the lives of our military to fight a war that will never be won! Learn from the past people! There will never be peace in this part of the world. The instability in tremendous, do your research! A new strategy needs to be developed but if we can conduct airstrikes with our allies until this happens so be it.

You are so right. When we invaded Iraq to “free the people and establish democracy” I said “bull doodoo.” The peoples of the Middle East, like the peoples of Africa are tribalists.

Hmmm, now that I think of it, so are the peoples of Asia, North America, South America … I’m losing my train of thought.

Yeah….and the new strategy should be to show these insects a little about fire/heat…..its called THERMO-NUCLEAR……

The thing is, if they continue to grow, they will come for us too. I assure you of that.

They will not stop until the entire world is under Islamic rule.

We stayed out of WWII until the Japanese imperialists attacked us.

Sitting back and “letting them be” will not ultimately bring peace.

It is the other Arab countries that haven’t stepped up to the plate. In fact, it is said that the countries you didn’t mention actually have funded the Radical Muslims and specifically the attack on 9/11.

I so agree. We need another Harry Truman who isn’t afraid to drop the bomb on them. There is no dealing with them. They only understand brute force. So… Let them have it! Enough of our people going over there. Enough of our brave soldiers being killed or coming home horribly maimed. Enough already!

Absolutely! Intel knows EXACTLY where in Syria (I believe it is called Raqaa, or something like that) so why the delay. Just nuke that town, turning it into a glass parking lot, then giving notice to the rest of the world that we have had it up to our necks and will NOT take it anymore! Then do the same to Tehran, and the capitol of N/ Korea! Why in the hell do we have to take this crap???
