If what happened in Paris last night doesn't get the world's attention, including President Obama's, then nothing will.
And the same goes for the mainstream media, including Obama's friend George Stephanopoulos.
Obama Says Islamic State No Longer Growing in Strength is subtitled 'In TV interview, president says 'we have contained them:'
"President Barack Obama said that Islamic State’s expansion has been halted and that the terrorist group was no longer growing in strength.
In an interview with ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos, part of which aired Friday, Mr. Obama made the case that the U.S. strategy against the group—also known as ISIL or ISIS—has always been a long-term proposition.
“We’ve always understood that our goal has to be militarily constraining ISIL’s capabilities, cutting off their supply lines, cutting off their financing,” Mr. Obama told ABC.
He said that the advance of the group has largely been halted—though he acknowledged the leadership of group remains at large.
“I don’t think they’re gaining strength. What is true is from the start our goal has been first to contain—and we have contained them.""
Dear Commander-in-Chief President Obama:
Talk is cheap and action speaks louder than words. What you do speaks so loudly that we can't hear what you say.
It's long past time to stop referring to ISIS as the JV squad. And it's time to admit that we haven't contained them. Their ongoing barbarism remains unchecked.
It's time for the U.S to lead the world and join France in persuading Russia, China, Germany, Japan, Canada, Great Britain, Australia, Mexico and other civilized nations to come together and commit to protecting all law abiding citizens. You need to get mad as hell and do something about it --- destroy and decimate ISIS.
It's time for you, President Obama, to face facts and deal with reality. To repeat, the time for talk is over. It's time to destroy and decimate ISIS, ISIL, Daesh or whatever else you may choose to call them.
That's my take.
