A TEN POINT PLAN TO DEFEAT TERROR
President Obama’s December 6 speech to the nation concerning terror offered the American people no new initiative, only a promise to stay the course, a course that is failing. The President’s inaction is aiding the enemy. His choice of a prime time address in which he did not announce any new military initiatives to combat terror and did not call on the American people to take any specific steps to increase their defenses against terror signals to America’s enemies that he lacks the resolve to win.
To diminish the extent of terror at home and abroad requires a bold and aggressive commitment from a Commander-in-Chief to fill the mantle of a President at war and annihilate every vestige of terror. Obama makes no such commitments because he refuses to assume that mantle. He refuses to do what is necessary to protect the American people. In other words, he is willing to accept the risks and consequences of terror rather than lead the nation and the world in ruthless combat against a ruthless enemy.
Here are the ten steps required to defeat our terrorist foes, which a true Commander-in-Chief would have announced long before December 6, 2015:
The failure of the President to take actions such as these, indeed to do anything beyond the half-hearted commitment he has made to date, reveals that he lacks the will to win the war on terror. Because he as Commander-in-Chief lacks the will to win, he is necessarily an ally of those committing acts of terror against us, a Manchurian candidate of sorts whose weak backbone is liberally exploited by those who plot to kill us.
Every decision he makes to deny full use of American power against this enemy is a decision in aid of that enemy. The adverse consequences at home and abroad of his inaction are very nearly as powerful in support of terror as direct support of the enemy. Had he taken the steps enumerated above at the start of the rise of ISIS, we would not be a nation invaded but a nation protected. As it stands, his failure to do what is necessary to win means that we will see more acts of terror on American soil and throughout the Western world. The time between now and when Obama’s successor arrives will be a very long one indeed, likely with many American lives lost unnecessarily due largely to his refusal to defend the nation adequately, let alone triumphantly.
