Top 10 signs Democrat policies created ISIS

The left’s outrageously dishonest attempt to blame others for the Democrat policy disaster known as “ISIS” is such a brazen, in-your-face attack on the facts that it simply cannot go unanswered. Here are the top ten signs that this lunatic cult of Islamic savages currently raping, torturing, and mass-murdering its way across Syria and Iraq was created directly by Democrat policies:

10) Even anti-Iraq war partisans like NBC’s Richard Engel have openly laughed at the White House’s embarrassingly inept and delusional handling of ISIS from the beginning (like incompetently arming them by accident).

9) Even hilariously biased liberal “fact-checkers” like Politifact reject diversionary Democrat attempts to blame the creation of ISIS on George W. Bush and Dick Cheney.

8) Even Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) disputed Obama’s naive and costly dismissal of ISIS as a “JV team” early on, and called his total non-response to the crisis “too cautious,” as it has allowed the group’s heinous atrocities to sweep across Syria and Iraq with impunity.

7) Even Palestinian terror-apologist Jimmy Carter blasted Obama for enabling ISIS to take over, saying, “We waited too long. We let the Islamic State build up its money, capability and strength, and weapons while it was still in Syria.”

6) Obama now openly lies about it even being his decision to leave Iraq…after campaigning for roughly a year straight on withdrawing the troops. He has also scrambled to blame the rise of ISIS on everything from George Bush (like the race card, it apparently never gets old), to his own subordinates…everything other than Obama carelessly hurrying us out of Iraq. Leftist professors and media outlets have even tried to blame “global warming.” And the State Department literally even tried to blame Muslim unemployment.

5) As with Obama’s disastrous appeasement of Russia, the “tragic” events Mitt Romney (and President Bush) predicted would happen did in fact end up happening exactly the way he said they would, despite Obama snidely mocking, ridiculing, and condescending to him the entire time on both Russia and Iraq.

4) Even Hillary Clinton is on the record directly attributing the rise of ISIS to Democrats refusing to aid the moderate rebels in Syria, which “left a big vacuum, which the jihadists have now filled.”

3) Even Obama’s former CIA Director and Defense Secretary, Leon Panetta, identified the reckless abandonment of Iraq as the reason ISIS then emerged. According to Panetta, this senseless Democrat betrayal of yet another vital U.S. ally “created a vacuum in terms of the ability of that country to better protect itself, and it’s out of that vacuum that ISIS began to breed.”

2) All the experts warned Obama that precisely this kind of violence and chaos would ensue across Iraq if he hastily rushed the withdrawal of our troops to meet his arbitrary December 2011 deadline (putting his partisan election-year concerns before our allies, interests, and national defense). Some experts, like Retired Army Gen. John M. Keane, even warned that Obama’s plan would be an “absolute disaster” from the moment it was announced.

1) ISIS (formerly al Qaida in Iraq) was already defeated by President Bush’s “Surge” strategy (which Democrats trashed, undermined, and insisted would never work), before Obama rushed in and prematurely withdrew nearly all of our troops, needlessly abandoning the country to bloodthirsty Islamic radicals.

Obama himself even fully acknowledged before surrendering the region to infidel-slaughtering psychopaths that there were “risks of increased bloodshed in Iraq without a continuing US presence there.” But he then still went on to ludicrously insist that “those risks are even greater if we continue to occupy Iraq and serve as a magnet for…terrorist activity”–a charge that missed the entire point of taking the fight to the enemy and that has been proven thoroughly and utterly wrong at this point.

As with Obama’s embarrassing insistence that “The Surge” would never work, his rejection of the interrogation methods that located Osama bin Laden (which he then outrageously took credit for), and his bogus “red line in the sand”…virtually every single thing this Nobel Peace Prize winner has said or done about terrorism in the Middle East has turned out to be disastrously wrong. Not that any of this matters when most of the news media refuse to even mention his abrupt pullout from Iraq when discussing the resulting carnage (compare this with every attack under Bush being framed as happening ‘this many days since the”Mission Accomplished” speech’).

Obama protects the Muslim fundamentalists who stone women to death for being raped, start global riots over cartoons, and who danced in the streets on 9/11, by equating them to Christians during the Crusades, diverting our attention to the “real threat” of right-wing domestic threats (anyone to the right of Karl Marx), and by refusing to even say the words, “Islamic extremists.” He openly arms, funds, and releases Islamic terrorists at every turn, and pretends that this left-wing “grovel, appease, and surrender” foreign policy approach isn’t even worse than Bill Clinton’s  eight-year non-response to al Qaida (which made 9/11 possible).

The Bottom Line: As National Review masterfully spells out in excruciating, step-by-step detail, the facts overwhelmingly demonstrate that ISIS is the direct product of Democrat policies, and nothing else. The left’s absurd attempt to blame their relentlessly incompetent foreign policy failures on President Bush for daring to fight back against Islamic terror-sponsors years earlier is the equivalent of blaming FDR for the outcome of Vietnam. It is ridiculous on its face.

Democrats’ 15 worst foreign policy disasters

As difficult as it is to narrow down and rank the 15 most devastating liberal policy failures over so many decades of relentless Democrat incompetence and treason, here are the most costly and destructive examples:

15) Outraging and alienating our allies around the world by illegally spying on their citizens, using drones to illegally assassinate people at will, and lying about closing down Guantanamo Bay.

14) Enthusiastically embracing the “Arab Spring” on the anniversary of 9/11, as violent Muslim fanatics stormed our embassy in Egypt, tore down and desecrated our flag, and set the stage for widespread public bloodshed.

13) Drawing a “red line” on Syria’s chemical weapons, only to stand there and do nothing (except lie about having drawn that red line) as Syria mass-murdered its civilians while laughing in our face.

12) Appeasing Russia on every front, only to be defied, mocked, and humiliated as Putin promptly began invading his neighbors, oppressing his people, and flagrantly provoking us with impunity.

11) Snatching defeat from the jaws of victory in Vietnam.

10) Abandoning four Americans to be dragged through the streets and tortured to death by bloodthirsty Islamic savages in Benghazi, and then falsely portraying it as the result of Americans having the right to disagree with Islam in public.

9) Releasing five major terrorist leaders to appease the Taliban into releasing one America-hating deserter.

8) Appeasing North Korea with money, fuel, and nuclear technology as it went nuclear.

7) Betraying our moderate ally in Iran (the Shah) to replace him with Iran’s current lunatic Islamo-fascist regime.

6) Dismantling our missile defenses as Iran and North Korea went nuclear.

5) Betraying our most critical ally in the Middle East to appease Iran’s terror-sponsoring regime as it went nuclear.

4) Absolutely gutting the military budget to the bone, compromising national defense and emboldening our enemies by signaling to the world that the US no longer has the will or means to confront foreign threats.

3) Bill Clinton’s eight-year non-response to constant al Qaida attacks leading up to 9/11 (retreat from bin Laden in Somalia, first WTC attack, barracks bombing in Saudi Arabia, embassy bombings in Africa, USS Cole, etc.).

2) Handing Afghanistan back to the Taliban–the terror-sponsoring regime that facilitated 9/11.

1) Ignoring all the experts and rushing out of Iraq before their government was fully ready to take over, thereby effectively handing the country to al Qaida…after they had already been defeated there and driven out.

Of course, this list doesn’t even include the scores of other jaw-dropping liberal policy disasters that have plagued this country for the last seventy years, like the Bay of Pigs catastrophe (which caused the Cuban Missile Crisis), or Democrats losing China to the communists…or their endless domestic policy failures.

Top ten liberal lies about Iraq

Now that the news media are finally being forced to admit that Iraq was a success (at least, until Democrat rushed in and snatched defeat from the jaws of victory), here are the top ten falsehoods liberals have used to destroy public support for this war:

10. Iran and North Korea were the more urgent threats.

The lunatic regimes Democrats installed in Iran and appeased in North Korea had already acquired dangerous weapons and had not yet defied twelve years of U.N. Resolutions (which liberals insist wasn’t enough time for Saddam). What happened to trying diplomacy first?

Stopping Saddam from building more dangerous weapons was clearly far more urgent.

9. The Iraqis never wanted us there.

Contrary to everything liberals tell us, the Iraqis really did greet us as liberators. And long after we went into Iraq, the Iraqi people continued to support us and the invasion. It was only after Iran and Syria began sending foreign fighters across the borders to conduct vicious sectarian terrorism campaigns that public opinion started to change…at which point liberals immediately rushed in and began incessantly misrepresenting this manufactured violence as Iraqis rebelling against some un-welcome “occupation,” and deeming the entire war a hopeless and unwinnable “quagmire.”

Liberals also naturally rushed in to protect Iran and Syria as they openly instigated, armed and funded the attacks on our troops…while demanding more groveling, appeasement and surrender from the U.S., even though such terrorist regimes have openly admitted that meeting with them merely legitimizes their cause.

8. Bush had no plan (‘Mission Accomplished’).

Between telling us the war was lost, that the surge would never work and that Iraq was a “distraction” (apparently we should wait for eachindividual terror-sponsor to hit us separately before acting against any of them), Democrats constantly accused Bush of not having a plan. This was before they took office and adopted his plan entirely. That plan was simply to rebuild the country and leave when the Iraqis could take over.

This was made clear in the “Mission Accomplished” speech, along with the fact that the rebuilding process would be long and difficult. Liberals naturally responded by pretending the “Mission Accomplished” sign meant President Bush was prematurely claiming that the entire war was over, rather than just the initial invasion, thus inventing a bogus gaffe out of thin air.

7. The war has killed hundreds of thousands of Iraqi civilians.

Not even close. Liberals have repeatedly been caught wildly exaggerating Iraqi casualties, fabricating horror stories and falsely trashing our troops. Additionally, they have insisted since the beginning on talking only about the one tiny triangle of the country with all of the problems. This would be like judging California (which is the same size as Iraq) solely by the ghettos of L.A..

It completely ignores things like the lives saved by us killing terrorists (as well as how much better off the Shiites, Kurds, women and Israelis are).

6. We rushed in unilaterally.

After years of failed diplomacy, we went in with a coalition of forty different countries. France, Germany and Russia were too busy protecting their corrupt, behind-the-scenes dealings with Saddam (in blatant defiance of UN Resolutions) to lift a finger.

5. The war was illegal.

As Front Page Magazine has explained, the (endless) U.N. Resolutions authorized the war:

Saddam was an international outlaw. He had violated the 1991 Gulf War truce and all the arms control agreements it embodied, including UN resolutions 687 and 689, and the 15 subsequent UN resolutions designed to enforce them. The last of these, UN Security Council Resolution 1441, was itself a war ultimatum to Saddam giving him “one final opportunity” to disarm – or else. The ultimatum expired on December 7, 2002, and America went to war three months later.

4. We didn’t give diplomacy a chance.

Here is the 12-year time-line of exhaustive diplomatic efforts that preceded the war.

3. All we did was turn the Islamic world against us.

Newsflash: They already hated us. Iraq was invaded after 9/11, after eight years of unanswered al Qaida attacks and after decades of unprovoked attacks before that. It didn’t start with us finally deciding to fight back. In fact, it was only once we started drawing the enemy away from U.S. soil and onto a Middle Eastern battlefield (part of Bush’s stated objective) that we went seven years without a single domestic terrorist attack.

Fighting back does create more terrorists, but so does not fighting back, as Democrats demonstrated when they retreated from Islamic terrorists in Somalia. Bin Laden responded by calling the American soldier a “paper tiger” without the “stomach for war” and by using it to recruit more terrorists. We need to stop worrying about creating more terrorists and just focus on stopping them.

These are the people who poured into the streets by the thousands all around the world to dance and celebrate on 9/11 (a fact liberals unsuccessfully tried to dismiss). They attack us for the same reason that they attack everyone else–Islam is a savage cult that stones women to death for being raped, starts deadly global riots over cartoons and is obsessed with slaughtering infidels.

2. Saddam had no ties with terrorists.

According to the 9/11 Commission Report, Hussein made pacts with al Qaida (pg. 61), offered bin Laden safe haven (pg. 66) and offered to help al Qaida with chemical and biological weapons (pg. 128). He also sheltered al Qaida terrorists, openly sponsored suicide bombers and provided safe haven to notorious terrorist fugitive Abu Abbas.

Additionally, the news media copiously documented the connections until the moment Republicans wanted to remove Saddam.

1. There were no WMD.

Even after giving Saddam 9 months to hide his WMD in Syria while we publicly debated invading, we still found thousands of artillery shells filled with mustard and sarin gas (many with still-lethal purity levels as high as 84%). We also found nearly two tons of low-enriched Uranium, vials of live botulism, a seven-pound block of cyanide salt, and more.

Saddam Hussein had WMD, and repeatedly demonstrated his willingness to use them on civilian populations. And according to the FBI agent who questioned him, Saddam openly admitted that he was aggressively seeking to finish reconstituting his WMD program. This is consistent with other inconvenient truths, like the fact that he sent a delegation to Niger in 1999 to “expand commercial relations”…with a country that only exports Uranium (another fact liberals have humiliated and discredited themselves trying to lie about).

Tapes recovered after the fall of Baghdad even reveal Hussein discussing how to launch a terrorist attack on U.S. soil with WMD.

The bottom line: Liberals saw the same evidence as President Bush and drew the same conclusions as he did. After 9/11, genocidal terror-sponsors obsessed with WMD, who had already been through more than a decade of failed UN diplomacy, simply could no longer be tolerated. Contrary to everything we have been told, the invasion of Iraq was absolutely urgent and necessary…and Democrats emphatically agreed at the time.
