President Obama spoke to the nation from the Oval Office, intending to assure the public that he is absolutely correct in his strategy for, um, fighting ISIS; great tragedy in San Bernardino, killing a diverse group of Americans, which proves we need more gun laws, and though these two killers may have been radicalized by false notions of Islam, we mustn’t blame any Muslims because Islam is a religion of peace. Blaming Muslims would be a denial of our true American values,
His strategy, which is absolutely correct, is bombing
ISIS ISIL with such strict rules of engagement that most flights never release their bombs. We cannot risk killing any civilians, so don’t go bombing any trucks that might be driven by a civilian. That would be a denial of our true American values. Remember that he killed Osama bin Laden. He has sent in Special Forces, all 50 of them, to train someone there how to fight ISIS ISIL We tried that before, but it ended up costing about a million dollars per fighter, and there ended up being only five of them left, anyway.
Above all, Obama promised that we weren’t going to have any
war boots on the ground, because he wasn’t going to be George W. Bush and do any stupid stuff. Our present policy of admitting large numbers of Syrian refugees from an assortment of Middle Eastern countries will not change because Islam is a religion of peace, and Muslims mostly vote Democrat.
Here is an actual transcript of the speech. Obama said that we will defeat the real threat of terrorism, but didn’t explain how the “real threat” differs from the present threat, and we will “destroy”
ISIS ISIL or any other organization that threatens the country. He just didn’t say how.
The President spoke at a podium in the Oval Office, not from his chair with his feet on the desk, as pictured above. It was a formal speech to the nation, only the third time he has addressed the nation from the Oval Office. He apparently thought it was important to say the same old things once again. I may not have been entirely fair here.
