Four oblivious apocalyptic horsemen
To the Editor:
President Obama, Secretary of State Kerry, former Secretary of State Clinton, and Senator Bernie sanders are oblivious to the danger posed by ISIS.
Bernie Sanders keeps harping on our economy, and hardly talks about ISIS. He is way out in left field.
President Obama referred to ISIS as the JV team and dithered when moderate Syrians asked for air strikes. Over the past year Obama's air campaign against ISIS averaged 20 sorties per day compared to 1100 sorties per day in Operation Desert Storm and 800 per day during the second Gulf War.
Obama continues to refuse to call them radical Islamic terrorists.
When referring to the Charlie Hebdo attack in Paris, Secretary Kerry said there was "a rationale that you could attach yourself to somehow and say, okay, they're really angry because of this and that". And then he described the killing of 130 people in Paris as indiscriminate. There is no rationale for any terrorist attacks, and showing sympathy for the Charlie Hebdo attack is ridiculous.
In a Democratic debate former Secretary Clinton said she couldn't refer to the Paris killers as radical Islamic terrorists, which is parroting Obama's view of the terrorists. Clinton and Obama think we should lead from behind and let others be out front, and ISIS and others are taking advantage of this policy of non-leadership, and they threaten the security of this country and the Western world.
