If the recent events in Paris do not convince the Western nations that the world is not safe for free people with ISIS in it, I don't think anything short of a cosmic collision will.
What happened in Paris is the one we've been fearing, not an attack on government buildings or a military facility, but a mass attack on society at large, with people eating dinner, attending a concert or a sporting event, folks just carrying on the everyday business of living their lives. In the midst of all that, many were shot down at random by Islamist crazies who think the world should live as miserably as they do.
We have long been warned that there are sleeper cells abroad in the world that are waiting for a signal to attack soft targets, to murder and maim in the shopping malls, schools and public places, places where unarmed, unsuspecting people would be easy targets and the carnage would pile up to make grisly pictures to document their satanic evil.
American presidents and congress have yielded to commercial and political pressure for decades and refused to do anything meaningful to stop the flood of humanity sweeping across our southern border.
We have no way of knowing who or what has crossed into our country, where they came from, what they've brought with them, or even, what their intentions are.
We have allowed foreigners to enter this country on visas and disappear after the visas have expired.
Did we learn nothing from 9/11?
Are we not so politically correct that we refrain from looking for the potential terrorists in the neighborhoods they frequent because we fear being accused of profiling?
Our president will not even identify the people who want to destroy us, preferring to refer to them by some inane, sanitized title. This leads me to ask the following question:
How can you defeat something you won't even identify?
Face it, America, Barack Obama either does not have the will or does not have the guts to fight the kind of war needed to defeat terrorism.
ISIS operated right out in the open at first, filing across the desert in caravans, just begging for a few hellfire missiles to put them out of their misery, but Obama was more interested in making a horrible deal with Iran than killing America's blood enemies before they had a chance to grow.
America, if we don't face the fact that we have terrorists living among us, and if we don't get some people in office with the determination and the gonads to dig them out and jail or destroy them, there will be chaos on the streets on a scale we don't even want to think about.
Do you think that the carnage these scumbags created in France will do anything but embolden them?
America is the highest hanging fruit on the tree, the prize, the gold ring and – along with Israel – the focal point of all the things they hate the most.
Folks, I think Paris is just a prototype, a field test, and a harbinger of bigger things planned and already on the drawing board.
We now know that at least two of the Paris terrorists came into Europe pretending to be Syrian refugees, and ISIS is now claiming they have infiltrated thousands more in the same way.
And Obama is hell bent on bringing untold thousands of these people to America. This is insanity, an act that could well result in the kind of slaughter we saw in Paris.
He needs to be stopped; once these people are mixed into society it will be too late.
I would bet that even now there are serious negotiations being held for one or more of these terrorist organizations to obtain a WMD, a suitcase nuke, a dirty bomb or perhaps a biological weapon that would annihilate thousands of people in a matter of minutes.
Because of one man who lacks the common sense and the courage to admit the truth, America faces blood and carnage on a level we may never have even imagined.
It's time to cut the head off the snake.
Give the Peshmerga modern weapons and plenty of them.
Bomb without ceasing; don't even let them stick their heads out.
Destroy their oil fields and dry up their financing.
Put an elite group of Special Forces on the ground with no rules of engagement. Give them everything they need, and keep politics out of their way.
Round up overstayed visas and deport them.
Close down the border, totally and completely. Nobody should be allowed in or out without going through check points the way our law prescribes, using National Guard, private security firms or whatever is needed to do the job.
Give federal and state officials permission to gather terrorist intelligence wherever the trail leads, mosques and Muslim neighborhoods notwithstanding.
Leave GITMO open, and expand its facilities.
Desperate times call for desperate measures.
America, get a hold or go down.
What do you think?
Pray for our troops and the peace of Jerusalem
God Bless America
