When I first saw this headline, I thought it had to be from The Onion. It just has to be right?
Obama Limiting Airstrikes on Islamic State to Protect Environment
Sadly no it is not from a news satire website that creates outlandish stories for comedic reasons. This is a real headline from a real, factual news site.
The Obama administration has the capability to take out the vast oil infrastructure that fuels and funds the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL), the richest terrorist group in modern history, but chooses not to, suggests the chairman of the Congressional Task Force on Terrorism and Unconventional Warfare.
So are we at war trying to kill an inhuman enemy that rapes children, burns and drowns people alive, and is performing mass genocide like we haven’t seen since Hitler walked this earth? Or are we pussy-footing around and refusing to let our war machine do its job by bringing the wrath of hell on top of our enemies?
“I’m told the President did not want to take out the [ISIS oil] trucks because there are some concerns with the environment,” said Pittenger, who also serves as the vice-chair of the Bipartisan Task Force to Investigate Terrorism Financing.
This President should be brought up for charges for this. If you are committing our most valued national resource, the sons and daughters of this country, in addition or money and our technology to kill and enemy, then you go ALL IN. Otherwise pull out, sit back and let someone else deal with it or wait until a later time after more Americans are killed or someone else takes over.
Sad to say I guess this is what you get when someone has their head so far up their ass that they think environment change is the worst threat we face today and not ISIS, Al-Queda, terrorism, Russian aggression, unstable North Korea, or any of the other real threats out there.
