Last night, Obama did mention terrorism and ISIS/ISIL. I took another look through the transcript and missed this part. He did mention Paris after all, my bad, I didn’t catch that.
“First, we stand united with people around the world who’ve been targeted by terrorists — from a school in Pakistan to the streets of Paris. We will continue to hunt down terrorists and dismantle their networks, and we reserve the right to act unilaterally, as we’ve done relentlessly since I took office to take out terrorists who pose a direct threat to us and our allies.
At the same time, we’ve learned some costly lessons over the last thirteen years.
Instead of Americans patrolling the valleys of Afghanistan, we’ve trained their security forces, who’ve now taken the lead, and we’ve honored our troops’ sacrifice by supporting that country’s first democratic transition. Instead of sending large ground forces overseas, we’re partnering with nations from South Asia to North Africa to deny safe haven to terrorists who threaten America. In Iraq and Syria, American leadership — including our military power — is stopping ISIL’s advance. Instead of getting dragged into another ground war in the Middle East, we are leading a broad coalition, including Arab nations, to degrade and ultimately destroy this terrorist group. We’re also supporting a moderate opposition in Syria that can help us in this effort, and assisting people everywhere who stand up to the bankrupt ideology of violent extremism. This effort will take time. It will require focus. But we will succeed. And tonight, 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.”
While this whole section is about terrorism above, notice how he never mentioned Muslim or Islam once. Never called any of this radical Islam as I predicted. Even though he mentions Paris, he never says anything about Charlie Hebdo or “Je suis Charlie”. He was careful on not bringing up Muhammed’s name. Muslim sympathizer, that’s why!
What he said in bold, “moderate opposition in Syria”. What does he mean here? Yes, that’s right aiding Syrian rebels (aka terrorists the bad guys who John McCain went out to shake hands with) money and running guns to them. You can see that he was careful on not mentioning, “gun running”.
Hey Obama, I have a better idea on how to destroy Isis once and for all. How about not sending terrorists money and guns? How about not releasing terrorists from Gitmo?
What’s wrong with sending US Troops or Navy Seals over to kill every last one of them? Obama won’t do that ’cause he was the one who started Isis/Isil in the first place. Why would he kill what he started?
Supporting “Moderate Opposition” isn’t gonna destroy Isis. All that’s gonna do is make terrorism even more powerful. Arresting Obama and those in government responsible for starting this terrorist group should be arrested and charged. That’s how you destroy Isis is arrest the people responsible for starting the group and that’s the US government.

Looks like whatever we’re doing over there to help seems to be working
If you read the actual article, that has nothing to do with us. I like how you always try to make Obama look good. This has nothing to do with Obama and the US. The Kerdish Peshmerga decided to take matters in their own hands and get their area back. The US are not in charge of the KRSC. I don’t know where you get the idea of the US having anything to do with this. Nice try on trying to defend Obama but it didn’t work.
Which proves that if the KRSC can defeat ISIS like that so can the US troops. Isis is not that tough as they look.
