At the risk of stating the obvious, I think we’re being set up for another uncontrollable military conflagration:
President Obama’s envoy to the global coalition fighting the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) predicted on Wednesday that defeating the terrorist group could take a generation or more.
“Defeating Daesh’s ideology will likely take a generation or more,” he said, using the Arabic name for ISIS, according to the Times.
Retired Marine Gen. John Allen added that his assessment was based on the zealotry of ISIS’s ideology, according to The Times of Israel.
Allen additionally said that, if left unchallenged, ISIS could “wreck havoc on the progress of humanity.”
Time for another war-woody, eh, defense contractors? It’s Communism dominos all over again. It’s just a matter of time until more bodies are thrown onto the pyre of escalating military action in the Middle East. Pay close attention to these Buck Turgidsons, because you can bet your ass our leaders are.
