The Obama administration is now crowing about killing ten mid-level ISIS leaders. This is nothing more than a reaction to recent polls expressing Americans’ lack of confidence and trust in Obama’s dealing with Islamic terrorism. There is anxiety and a sense of abject failure with President Obama’s handling of the global Islamic jihadist movement — and it is warranted. And ten guys, or the “retaking” of Ramadi — something that should have never happened — will not dissuade this sentiment.
All you have to do is look beyond the Middle East and see how it’s all falling apart. Just a week ago we lost six brave American Airmen in Bagram, Afghanistan. The combat theater commander, General Campbell, declared ISIS as being “operationally emergent” in Afghanistan. All this has occurred in the combat theater of operations that isn’t supposed to be a combat zone, as unilaterally declared by Barack Obama — hence the anxiety. And there is further proof that Obama has failed.
As reported by the Military Times, “Afghan police are refusing to return to the streets of a volatile southern district under Taliban attack, claiming that promised government help has not yet arrived, an Afghan official said Tuesday.
According to Karim Atal, the director of the Helmand provincial council, security forces are for now staying inside their base in Sangin district, where government forces have been fighting a Taliban takeover attempt for weeks.
Sangin is a major poppy-growing district in Helmand — the heartland of the Taliban — that produces most of the world’s opium, the cash crop that funds the insurgency.
In comments to The Associated Press, Atal also dismissed reports that a military clearing operation had begun in the district. Taliban attempts to overrun Sangin peaked last week when fighters besieged the base, cutting off supply lines for troops, ammunition and food.
Days later, acting Defense Minister Masoom Stanekzai said reinforcements of special forces and commandoes had been deployed. A series of U.S. airstrikes followed and a small contingent of British troops were deployed as advisers for the over-stretched Afghan forces, which eventually helped break the siege.”
We recently reported on the Taliban attack against Kandahar AB, a place I know very well, and prior to that, there was the major assault in northern Afghanistan where U.S. Special Operators and airstrikes had to engage.
So we’re all focused on Ramadi, because that’s what the media wants to cheerlead for Obama, but we hear little about Helmand Province and the Sangin River valley. It’s not that the enemy is stlll on the battlefield, the fact is they still command specified areas of the battlefield. They still maintain sanctuaries.
Ladies and gents, we still have some 380 days to go with President Barack Obama as commander in chief, sorry, I just have trouble typing that. The enemy knows the truth and realizes Obama is paralyzed by campaign promises and ideology.
Heck, it wouldn’t surprise me if those five senior Taliban leaders were handling command and control operations from Qatar — if they haven’t somehow slipped back into Afghanistan. The global Islamic jihad grows and it’s not just expanding, it’s infiltrating, and that’s what the recent polling reflects.
The death of ten-mid level jihadi leaders, while nice, is not a strategic victory. Heck, it’s not even a tactical achievement. There are hundreds of thousands globally and we need a doggone big can of Raid for these cockroaches.
It’s up to us, the loyal patriots of America to elect new leadership that will send a message to the jihadists — you can run, but you will only die tired.
And I mean you WILL die.
I read your book, know your history, and know what it takes to body slam you jihadis. Enjoy these last 380 days. Hillary Clinton ain’t coming to empathize with y’all. Hell is coming to claim you.
