Obama’s ‘incremental stepping strategy’ doesn’t seem to work, as was to expect. Such strategy is too complicated, it depends on too many factors, it is too easily disrupted and it seems to originate from a dusty book about strategies for the dummies. This amateurish strategy wasted precious time, which could be spend on stopping the ISIS and the increasing influence and advancements of the Islamic extremism all over the world. Now the devil is out of the bottle and the ISIS and other Islamic extremists are totally out of control, expanding their ideological influences all over the world and poisoning the minds of Muslims young and old.
Many people are wondering who created the ISIS. Many Arabs and Muslims are claiming that the US and/or Israel created the ISIS. Those rumors are persistent, even when you try to counter it with actual facts. I’m not going to repeat those arguments, so I let you all answer that question.
In many countries and regions, where the majority of the population is Arab, they hear in their weekly sermon on Friday from Islamic religious authorities that the western world is bad, they are evil, they are similar as Satan and they need to be killed. The same happens on Arab TV, where a constant stream of hate and distrust are coming from the religious and government authorities. The Arab media is reporting events in the world with a certain bias, and even blatant lies and untruth and they do this already for years.
Are you able to behead a person? I mean cut his head of with a knife, sharp or not? Are you able to rape a woman and maybe bury her, but she is not dead yet. Or maybe you are in the mood to cut a child in half? Or maybe you like cutting someones fingers off? What do you say, castrate the man? Or cut out his heart and hold it in your hand for all to see? Do all of those things and you feel great doing it?
The major powers in the world owns an enormous battery of equipment, that can determine a license plate of any car in the world. They know exactly where each tank, each airplane and each ship is in China, Russia, all over the world … except in Iraq and Syria.The American government and intelligence agencies react confused, astonished and bewildered, in public, that they have no idea who is what and where in the ISIS controlled areas. The reasons why they can’t see in Syria and Iraq is because they don’t have any working intelligence assets on the ground. What is worrying though is, that the intelligence community has no alternatives and don’t know exactly what to do about it.
It is extremely unlikely that the ISIS can be destroyed by only opposing it by air force only. It is unlikely that the ISIS will be contained by air force only. There is a stream of people, who want to join the ISIS, from all over the world. The ISIS, a Sunni Muslim group, has large support in Iraq. It’s governing a territory with the size like Great Britain, and administers about 8 million people, mainly Sunni Muslims.
In Iraq, ISIS means the answer of the Iraqi State support oppression from the Shi’ites. For the Muslim world, the Islamic State means the expansion of Islam and the successful Sunni Muslim battle against the Shi’ite Muslims, and the failing campaigns of the American led international coalition against ISIS.
