The Turkish border is like an open door for Islamic State (ISIS) terrorists to pass as they please. ISIS fighters pour through the border to continue to grow their numbers in Syria and Iran. It appears as though President Barack Obama hasn’t taken the threat from ISIS seriously. He has only permitted bombing raids against them occasionally and doesn’t appear to be involved in trying to eliminate them.
Some folks believe that Obama is secretly hoping that ISIS will get rid of Syria’s leader, Bashar al-Assad, instead of sending U. S. military assets to destroy him and his regime. Obama has addressed leadership in Turkey, advising them to close the 550 mile border with Syria, thus preventing the flow of Jihadists into and out of Syria. Turkish leaders said that they know what to do and don’t need reminders from Obama.
Close a border to prevent the transit of terrorists, doesn’t that sound a little familiar?
Truth and Action reports:
Up to now, Obama has been dismissive of ISIS, calling them a JV team and allowing only occasional bombing raids against them in order to provide the pretense that he is anxiously engaged in stamping out this world threat.
Many believe that Obama is covertly rooting for and propping up ISIS as a way to depose Bashar al Assad, leader of Syria, rather than to become more involved militarily in that effort.
But with the suicide bombings and murders carried out by ISIS suicide bombers a couple of weeks ago, coupled with the embarrassing actions of Russia that showed a commitment to destroy ISIS and the military wherewithal to do just that, Obama is finally waking up to the fact that his narrative is becoming irrelevant regarding the terrorist organization.
