We must laud the former member of SEAL TEAM VI’s words. They would have had extra punch if he said what was obviously on his mind.
We would not be going back to Iraq or fighting Isis if it had not been for Obama’s failed leadership for his entire term of office in anything that could reasonably called a “Foreign Policy.”
The only thing foreign about it is that Obama never understood it because he never viewed it as an American.
The only fitting ending to Obama’s career would for him to be hung high for the treasonous acts he has committed.
Zinke told The Washington Free Beacon that the Obama administration’s mishandling of terrorist threats is putting our security at risk.
“This administration’s inaction and lack of commitment and resolve in fighting ISIS provides fuel for terrorism. It gives them hope that they can win and it has ramifications worldwide.”
The congressman cited the Paris Charlie Hebdo attack as evidence that terrorists are getting bolder in challenging the west. He says the Obama administration’s failure to view these attacks as “asymmetrical warfare” could ease the path for terrorists to encroach into Western Civilization.
“There’s a reason why we’re in retreat everywhere across the globe. This administration has consistently acted from a viewpoint that you can negotiate with terrorism.
You cannot negotiate with organizations that are based on an ideology whose core is to destroy the West and America,” Zinke said. “To me there is no doubt, inaction abroad emboldens actions on the home front. They are related.”
Sanctions and air campaigns won’t send a strong enough message to the likes of ISIS, Zinke insisted.
“This is the reality of asymmetrical warfare. When the enemy is willing to behead children, crucify entire villages, and with box cutters put commercial aircraft into buildings, there’s nothing this evil won’t do in pursuit of goal,” he said. “I think we’re at risk.”
