Obama Plays Global Whac-A-Mole With U.S. Military

I’ve written so many times about the huge Islam misunderstanding problem that persists throughout the Western World.  However I couldn’t stay away from this video when I saw it up at Vlad Tepes today.

Barack Obama , George Bush, Bill Clinton, you name the politician, none of them seems to know anything about what’s in the Quran or the Hadith collections.  Considering that Obama spent a sizable part of  his youth being raised as a Muslim, I suspect he has some idea of what’s in that book – but I doubt that he’s going to share any of it with us.

I wonder what it will take for our military and political leaders to ever get it through their very thick and dense skulls that these various jihad factions (al Qaida, Boko Haram, Hezbollah, Hamas, Taliban, al Shabob, ISIS, blah blah blah), against which our troops have been playing Global Whac-A-Mole for nearly fifteen years, are all using the same playbook.

“Islam is Islam, and that’s it”, said Turkey’s Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

Barack Obama was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in October of 2009, principally for his hope and change rhetoric.  Few seem to notice that our armed forces are now involved in far more Muslim civil wars (which have raged for centuries, by the way) than George Bush got them into.

Precious American lives and treasure continue to be lost in a war strategy which denies or ignores  both Islamic history and Muhammad’s violent life.

This state of affairs is nothing short of madness.


About John L. Work

John Lloyd Work has taken the detective thriller genre and woven an occasional political thread throughout his books, morphing what was once considered an arena reserved for pure fiction into believable, terrifying, futuristic, true-to-life “faction”. He traveled the uniformed patrolman’s path, answering brutal domestic violence calls, high speed chases, homicides, suicides, armed robberies, breaking up bar fights, and the accompanying sporadic unpredictable moments of terror - which eventually come to all police officers, sometimes when least expected. He gradually absorbed the hard fact that the greatest danger a cop faces comes in the form of day-to-day encounters with emotionally disturbed, highly intoxicated people. Those experiences can wear a cop down, grinding on his own emotions and psyche. Prolonged exposure to the worst of people and people at their worst can soon make him believe that the world is a sewer. That police officer’s reality is a common thread throughout Work’s crime fiction books. Following his graduation from high school, Work studied music and became a professional performer, conductor and teacher. Life made a sudden, unexpected turn when, one afternoon in 1976, his cousin, who eventually became the Chief of the Ontario, California, Police Department, talked him into riding along during a patrol shift. The musician was hooked into becoming a police officer. After working for two years as a reserve officer in Southern California and in Boulder, Colorado, he joined the Longmont, Colorado Police Department. Work served there for seven years, investigating crimes as a patrolman, detective and patrol sergeant. In 1989 he joined the Adams County, Colorado Sheriff’s Office, where he soon learned that locking a criminal up inside a jail or prison does not put him out of business. As a sheriff’s detective he investigated hundreds of crimes, including eleven contract murder conspiracies which originated “inside the walls”. While serving on the Adams County North Metro Gang Task Force and as a member of the Colorado Security Threat Intelligence Network Group (STING), Work designed a seminar on how a criminal’s mind formulates his victim selection strategy. Over a period of six years he taught that class in sheriff’s academies and colleges throughout Colorado. He saw the world of crime both inside the walls and out on the streets. His final experiences in the criminal law field were with the Colorado State Public Defender’s Office, where for nearly two years he investigated felonies from the defense side of the Courtroom. Twenty-two years of observing human nature at its worst, combined with watching some profound changes in America’s culture and political institutions, provided plenty of material for his first three books. A self-published author, he just finished writing his tenth thriller.
