To win a war against viciousness, we must, ourselves, be willing to become vicious. It’s a terrible notion, but it is the surest path to survival as a nation if we are remain engaged in a war with a determined, sneaky enemy that swears that it a duty to Allah to kill Americans.
It seems clear that President Obama and his band of peacenik toadies are thoroughly incapable of even addressing the threat posed by ISIS. As radical Islamists plot our destruction, the Obama Administration is more concerned about “climate change” than the very-real threat of terrorism in America.
2016 Republican frontrunner Donald Trump, on the other hand, remains as candid as ever about his desire to win in this war against ISIS.
On Fox & Friends on Wednesday, Trump blasted the “politically correct” war that is not doing enough to combat ISIS. Though he encountered significant pushback from hosts, Trump stuck to his position that we needed to “bomb the hell out of [ISIS]” and when confronted about questions concerning civilian casualties, Trump noted that ISIS fighters are using their families as “human shields” and that we must be willing to “take out” the families to win.
“But we’re fighting a very politically correct war,” Trump stated. “And the other thing is with the terrorists, you have to take out their families. When you get these terrorists, you have to take out their families. They care about their lives, don’t kid yourself. But they say they don’t care about their lives. You have to take out their families.”
The left, predictably, has not responded well to this notion. However, Trump’s willingness to boldly explain what needs to be done in order to secure victory for America is not only directly spot-on, but also as refreshing as lemonade on a hot summer day.
Civilian casualties should never be the objective of war; however, if our enemy is determined to utilize their families to protect their nefarious deeds and continued terrorism, the deaths are the result of these Islamic sociopaths, not the U.S.
That Trump is willing to say what Obama and others will not even consider is a refreshing departure from our nation’s policy of military weakness.
In 1986, terrorists kidnapped and held several Soviet diplomats to leverage demands to aid their terrorist endeavors.
When the Soviets did not cave to these demands quickly, the Hezbollah group killed one of the diplomats.
Rather than mess-around with the terrorist group, the KGB kidnapped and castrated a relative of the leader of the Shias’ Hezbollah group and killed the relative. They sent the body parts to the captors and informed them that they would all lose relatives to similar methods unless the remaining Soviet diplomats were freed.
One source in Jerusalem noted, “This is the way the Soviets operate. They do things–they don’t talk. And this is the language Hezbollah understands.”
In contrast, a bunch of disorganized Iranian college students with the backing of the revolutionary regime in Iran secured dozens of American hostages and held them for 444 days while U.S. President Jimmy Carter unsuccessfully attempted to negotiate their return.
Our hostages were released the very day that President Ronald Reagan was sworn-in.
Since the left loves the Soviet mindset so much, maybe they focus less on appreciating the collectivist ideology and more on adopting Russian tenacity for victory in warfare.
