US Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel told reporters that ISIS “is beyond anything we have seen … They marry ideology and a sophistication of strategic and tactical military prowess. They are tremendously well funded.”
Notice how carefully everybody tippy-toes around how they got so “tremendously well funded” in the first place?
Which is what pisses me off about the Bushbots who claim that Bush had “won” in Iraq. And yet when Saudi Arabia and Qatar wanted to revive a Sunni military force in Iraq, they had no problems doing so, despite the Bush “Surge” that supposedly pacified the Sunni militants once and for all.
Bush didn’t win, Obama hasn’t won, and Hegel, kissing the hem of the Oilbags’ robes, won’t win either. Not until everybody involved realizes that you don’t kill a monster by cutting off a tentacle or two. You kill a monster by driving a stake through its heart. And, in this case, its wallet.
