A Rick, A Dick & A Chuck Start the Fearmongering Over ISISSubmitted by McWilly on Fri, 08/22/2014 - 13:26
Rick Perry, fresh off his 2nd Amendment rights being stripped, has taken the stage to fan the flames of domestic panic over the terrorist group known as ISIS. He’s not alone, however, as Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel has also jumped on the bandwagon following the brutal and barbaric beheading of American journalist James Foley this week.
They need to be eliminated, and they need to be eliminated now,” Texas Gov. Rick Perry said of the growing threat of the Islamic State, a “terrorist army” formerly known as ISIS rampaging through Iraq.
Evidence is pretty clear. When we look at what they did to Mr Foley and threatend to do to all Americans and Europeans. There is no other way to describe it but barbaric. They have no standard of decency of responsible human behavior. They are an imminent threat to every interest we have.
It’s tragic this man died, who was in the media and thus to be left unharmed, as is understood by international wartime standards. He deserved better. Typically terrorists don’t play by the rules set out by countries with standing armies and large-scale wars. There is no defending this act, but there is ample evidence explaining i, stemming from the U.S. attack in and occupation of Iraq, as well as ongoing interventions to destabilize the region when the U.S. administration doesn’t like the leadership in place. This is the epitome of blowback, and it often harms the civilians far more than the military forces that instigated it.
