On Monday, President Obama spoke about his new strategy to take on the terrorist entity Islamic State in Iraq and Syria. In doing so, he explained that the battle against that terrorist group -- a group he had once termed "JV" -- would amount to a "generational struggle." Why would defeating a ragtag army of primitives take generations? Because, Obama explained, "This is not simply a military effort. Ideologies are not defeated by guns. They're defeated with better ideas." To cap off this airsickness bag of gobbledygook, Obama then concluded, "We will never be at war with Islam."
So let's get this straight. A group Obama said he would degrade and destroy can only be degraded and destroyed with ideas. Its own ideologies -- its animating force, according to Obama -- have nothing to do with Islam. The cretinism here resembles a perfect Jenga tower of fatuity: Remove one phrase, and the whole structure tumbles
Americans should gawk at the sheer wonder of Obama's applesauce here. Obama's bad acid trip bumper sticker foreign policy -- "Better Ideas Beat Bad Ideologies"
