Below is a guest-essay by Dave Petteys about President Obama’s recent reluctant decision to take action against the Islamic State, and what it means in the larger picture.
The President’s Real ISIS Strategy
by Dave Petteys
ACT! for America 5280 Coalition
The President and his Muslim Brotherhood advisors are apparently in sympathy with ISIS’ goals of imposing the Shari’a and building the Caliphate. Thus, their conundrum is how to make the President appear to be “doing something”, yet actually doing nothing to harm ISIS. Becoming bogged down in fruitless negotiations in “building a coalition” fits their purpose to a tee.
One by one our “allies” are declining to participate, especially the Islamic ones. It’s easy to understand: why would any Islamic country join the “kafir” United States and fight their co-religionists who are waging qur’anically sanctioned Jihad against the unbelievers? Oh, but our government doesn’t “do the God thing” and has to ignore the elephant in the room called Islam. Americans are completely locked in to the Kennedy School of Government nation-state paradigm. The notion of “religious war” is unacceptable! Religious wars went out of style 500 years ago — right?
Hopefully, once football season gets underway, the public eye will be avert from ISIS, and it can resume building the Caliphate unobstructed. (If only they’d refrain from these embarrassing beheadings!)
So what are we to do?
If we bomb unilaterally, the White House will throw the media switch and suddenly the only thing our bombs will hit are innocent women, children and weddings! (After all, don’t all brides in Iraq have beards, armored vests and AK 47s?) The National Lawyers Guild will prowl the battlefield taking affidavits from “innocent” ISIS fighters attesting to American war crimes. The military JAG will spend all its time prosecuting airmen for running the ordered airstrikes. (No good deed goes unpunished in our politically correct administration.)
A better answer is this: lay aside the Politically Correct straight jacket and call the enemy by its proper name: ISLAMIC JIHAD! Then, let us follow our own doctrine as delineated in FM 34-130, “Intelligence Preparation of the Battlefield”, and do what it says. Start with the facts on the ground: who’s doing what and why? What is the worst case scenario, and what do we need to do to stop it?
Then, we’d have to face the fact it is MUSLIMS who waging Jihad against us to impose the Shari’a Law, and to build a world-wide Caliphate. This would take away our system of government, our liberty and our prosperity, to say nothing of our very lives. If we don’t want this to happen, we need to fight every individual and organization that wages Islamic Jihad. This includes the Muslim Brotherhood in the United States, and all its front organizations. This also includes the mosques in the West that preach “death to the West and death to the Jews” from their pulpits and send their young men abroad to participate in Jihad.
It is necessary but not sufficient to engage ISIS in Iraq. We need to shut down their financial support and their supply of fighters from abroad, even if the apologists howl “we’re interfering with Islamic religious practices!” After all, the Qur’an mandates “war against the non-believers…” and to “strike terror in their hearts”. It’s hard for the Western mind to understand that in Islam, there is no separation between church and state. The Muslims do not deserve a free pass owing to our traditions of religious tolerance and liberty.
