Belmont Club » It’s Alive

It is well known for example that Qatar is a supporter of ISIS. “German Development Minister Gerd Mueller accused Qatar on Wednesday of financing Islamic State militants who have seized wide areas of northern Iraq and have posted a video of a captive American journalist being beheaded.”

“You have to ask who is arming, who is financing ISIS troops. The keyword there is Qatar – and how do we deal with these people and states politically?” said Mueller, a member of the Christian Social Union (CSU), the center-right Bavarian sister party of Angela Merkel’s Christian Democrats.

In Obama’s world the observation that Qatar was a source of support for ISIS would not be germane.

I blogged this Belmont Club piece yesterday from a slightly different aspect, but this bears notice:

How many years have I been saying that we need to deal with the regimes that are arming, financing, and otherwise supporting and using these Muslim terror gangs?

And now, finally, some “legitimate” sources are publicly bleating the same tune.  Oh, not all the way – Saudi Arabia, an even worse offender than Qatar, is carefully not mentioned – but this is a start.

Once people finally understand that any “strategy” – whether from GW Bush or Obama – that is focused on destroying the cockroaches but not their mother ships – is doomed to fail, maybe we can finally face up to reality and do something effective about ending the whole Muslim terror strategy.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.
