No war in history has ever been won with guns.
How can we possibly stop this man with a mere gun?
The Failure-in-Chief would like to remind all the people at the Pentagon that what they're doing is hopeless because guns don't work. Guns are bad. We all know the idea that it takes a good guy with a gun to stop a bad guy with a gun is crazy NRA propaganda.
We can't win wars with guns either. Remember how we tried and failed to defeat the Nazis with guns, and the war didn't stop until we appeased them? No war in history has ever been won with guns. Why should this one be any different.
On Monday afternoon, President Obama spoke at the Pentagon about the Islamic State, or ISIS, a terrorist organization in Syria and Iraq.
Obama stressed all elements of American power were going toward fighting the organization. "Altogether, ISIL has lost over a quarter of the populated areas it had seized in Iraq," the President said, using an alternative name for the terrorist group. "ISIL's strategic weaknesses are real."
Obama said the terrorist organization is doing their best to recruit from "Muslim communities around the world."
"In order for us to defeat terrorist groups like ISIL and al-Qaeda, we must discredit their ideology. This broader challenge of countering violent extremism," Obama said. "Ideologies are not defeated with guns, they are defeated by better ideas. We will never be at war with Islam," Obama added, stressing that ISIS distorts Islam.
To summarize, we're defeating ISIS, it has strategic weaknesses, but we can't possibly defeat it with icky guns. Instead we must make more hashtags. Foreign Policy really suggested that gay marriage can defeat ISIS. That's a plan alright.
How much territory has ISIS lost due to hashtags? Not so much as an inch. ISIS is winning the war of ideas among Muslims. That doesn't mean that it can't be defeated militarily.
When the USSR cut a deal with Hitler, their useful idiots in America began claiming that Nazism was an "ism" and couldn't be defeated by force. Then when their German boyfriend stabbed Uncle Joe in the back, they began shrilly demanding the use of force. And once America won the war, they spent the rest of the time claiming that Uncle Joe Stalin really won the war.
Nazism couldn't be defeated with guns back when the Germans were massacring Jews and helping the USSR carve up its own piece of Eastern Europe. But when the Huns showed up in the homeland of Socialism, suddenly they discovered that guns worked really well on Nazis.
Somehow, I suspect that if ISIS were pounding targets that Obama really cared about and beheading people he cared about, suddenly all those bombing raids would involve actually striking ISIS no matter where they are and without worrying about the collateral damage.
All those many branches of the Federal government have their own SWAT teams because clearly liberals believe that enemies of the EPA or the FDA can be defeated with guns. They just don't believe that ideologies like ISIS, which after all don't really want a Caliphate, but are upset about our foreign policy, can be defeated with guns.
And that says it all.
