News Week has an interesting story on the recent threats by ISIS aimed at Rome. The threats and growing concerns are a direct result of King Obama's foolish Arab Spring which toppled Libya's Muammar el-Qaddafi.
"Renaissance and Early Modern writers characterized the Vandals as barbarians, "sacking and looting" Rome." - Wikipedia
From different sources across the internet and the Islamic State's own magazine threats against Rome and Italy are being issued. And while the Italian people seem unconcerned the government is just beginning to realize how vulnerable they really are.
"Since the fall of Muammar el-Qaddafi in 2011, Libya has descended into chaos, giving rise to warring militias, some of whom are loyal to ISIS." - News Week
Will Nero fiddle as Rome burns? Who knows? How many predicted what would happen in Iraq if U.S. troops were removed? During the George W Bush Presidency the media often fumed and snarled as they repeatedly asked him if one thing or another had been a mistake. Now, despite the most obvious of mistakes and miscalculations the MSM continues to carry the water for Obama. Is the American public being lulled into a false sense of security?
“If ISIS can successfully intermingle with those fleeing the Libyan coast en route for Europe,” al-Libi added, “this could turn life in southern European states into hell.” - Pro-ISIS Blogger
“Our citizens, our world today is, despite ISIL, despite the visible killings that you see and how horrific they are, we are actually living in a period of less daily threat to Americans and to people in the world than normally.” – Secretary of State John Kerry on Wednesday
The previous two quotes come from Judge Jeanine Pirro at Fox News. Pirro is correctly pointing out the contradictory messages the American public is getting. We've heard that terrorists need jobs and from Obama himself, global warming is a greater threat to Americans than terrorism. Is this sound bite propaganda or a signal of where the one's priorities are? Without question Obama is the most deceptive man to hold the office since FDR.
“Preliminary data for the first 9 months of 2014 reflects nearly 13,000 attacks which killed 31,000 people. When the final accounting is done 2014 will have been the most lethal year for global terrorism in the 45 years such data has been compiled.” - Director of National Intelligence James Clapper on Thursday
That piece, Lies, Damn Lies and Obama Lies by Noel S Williams is both spot on and an excellent read. While the focus is the administration's dishonesty which is apparent in almost every aspect of its governance the media's complicity shouldn't be ignored by the public. We're being treated like sheep and the sheep dog is playing golf!
"Obama bizarrely claimed that ISIS is on the defensive, but it soon reached the periphery of Ain al-Asad air base in Anbar Province which houses about 320 marines. And they certainly weren’t on the defensive when they captured the western Iraqi town of al-Baghdadi." - American Thinker
