(Ramzy Baroud) Everyone seems to have a theory on how to obliterate ISIS, or ‘Daesh’. However, two points are rarely raised: one, concerning the origins of the group and the second, on whether there are genuine intentions to defeat it, in the first place.
We must boldly address the first to unravel the enigma behind the rise and growth of ‘Daesh’ – otherwise, how else can the group be dismantled.
We must contend with the second point before engaging in superfluous discussions about the most appropriate war strategy – that if war is, at all, the answer.

My Commentary: Obama long ago exposed his Bush to America… Yet, so very few will admit the plain and simple fact that the EMPEROR HAS NO CLOTHES!
The following correspondence originally took place upon the Facebook wall of an ex-acquaintance, after he shared a photo from here…
“Fireback: Should Obama bypass Congress to enact his agenda through Executive Action?”
Dian C.: If those idjits keep stalling and striking down EVERYTHING he wants to do, then, YES… Do NOT want another Government shut down, which the Republicans will cause and then blame Obama for it, just like Ted Cruz did yesterday while on Face The Nation…
Rayn: Three cheers for “the Decider”! Bush 2.0, in full effect!
Genaire: This can simply be answered by the quote: “If your vote doesn’t matter, why are they trying so hard to take it away from you?” Basically you would be taking away the vote of a third of the country by the use of these signing statements. Our government is based off checks and balances, to remove these checks and balances is removing the democracy right from our democratic REPUBLIC.
