Obama calls on Congress to authorize force against Islamic State

Michael L.

The Jerusalem Post writes:
Washington - President Barack Obama on Tuesday called on the US Congress to pass a new authorization of force against the Islamic State militant group and to not rush into new sanctions on Iran over its disputed nuclear program.

Obama said a US led coalition of countries is stopping the advance of the group in Iraq and Syria. "I call on this Congress to show the world that we are united in this mission by passing a resolution to authorize the use of force against ISIL," Obama said in the annual State of the Union address, using another acronym for the militant group.
There is two years left to this administration.

I do not trust Obama on Iran, but I say that we take the positive signs where we can.

Those are strong words concerning the Islamic State, which represents political Islam and is thus representative of the foremost enemy of all people in the world today... although some more so than others.

I say that we hold Obama to it.

  1. We'd be fighting on the side with and for Iran then. Perhaps it's wiser to let them kill each other.

  2. So, I am to understand that neither one of you would prefer to see the US honestly go after the Islamic State?

  3. There's really no question we're going after IS, since consider - our homeboy Abdullah is in his final days, after which Saudi Arabia will break down into an anarchic situation of thirteen thousand 'royals' jihading-up against each other while "oops, look who just crossed over the border from Iraq and is now making YouTube snuff videos featuring kneeling Aramco officials soon to 'head' up the Honorary Ichabod Crane Division of Geotechnical Engineers"...

    Needless to say, this is one line no Western leaders will allow to be crossed while the capability to prevent it is still there. So I don't doubt this statement for a second.

      "[All of] our homeboy [Hamas fighters] [are] in [their] final days"...

    3. I need to remember to only use my powers for good. No striking people down for putting ketchup on their hot dogs or for being Penguins fans, for instance.
