In case the President does not know it, there is a War against Civilization going on.

 I hate to break it to him but it is getting worse because he is hiding behind Word Wars and Mind Games.The beheading of 21 Coptic Christians by ISIS following the Charlie Hepdo and HyperKasher Market Murders in France, and the Copenhagen Murders are a reflection of what is up ahead. Unless the West decides to go all out against an ever increasingly dangerous enemy(s), these barbaric and medieval scenes will continue to happen. There is a reason 57% of Americans in a CNN poll disapprove of President Obama's handling of ISIS.

There is only one way to handle ISIS and that is to fight them the same way America and its Allies fought Saddam Hussein and Al Queda. No one likes to send in ground troops but there is no real alternative. Allowing ISIS to grab headlines each and every day by their latest beheading or act of cruelty cannot continue. They must be stopped and they must be stopped now. Perhaps, with the new Secretary of Defense we will see at least a plan that begins to address the problem although I am quite skeptical. And as bad as ISIS is, Iran is much much worse.

ISIS pales in comparison to the threat of a Nuclear Iran. The President just ended a three day conference on "violent extremism" and instead of reassuring Americans, the President did the exact opposite. As Amir Taheri writing in the New York Post said, it (the conference)"exposed anew Obama's inability or unwillingness to understand the challenge of Islamist terrorism, let alone to lead the fight against it". There were members of CAIR who attended the conference. CAIR has been shown to be a front for Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood. Both are part of the problem, not part of the solution. Hamas is still listed on the State Department's list of Terrorist Organizations although the President never calls them Terrorists.

How does civilization stand a chance to defeat Islamic Terrorism if the Leader of the Free World cannot define its enemy in correct terms? If for no other reason, A Republican President will be voted in 2016 to defeat the scourge that is now upon us. The President may want to punt on his responsibility towards ISIS, Al Queda, Hamas, and Iran but it will only cost more lives later and a much steeper price at that. Americans are not yet ready to say let someone else take care of it. America must be at the front of the fight not at its rear.

If America with its Allies could defeat Nazi Germany with its advanced weaponry then America is primed to defeat the current War on Civilization. All that is needed is a fair chance to do so. The President owes America and the World at least that much.
