Obama Promised to Handle ISIS with Airstrikes. So Why is He Giving Them Gifts Instead?
President Obama took his sweet time trying to come up with an effective strategy to handle ISIS.
After watching the middle east go up in literal flames, Obama finally decided that he would provide unilateral airstrikes against the insurgents. The airstrikes have been going on for several weeks now and yet the ISIS terrorists are moving forward seemingly unchallenged.
So why is that?
Part of the reason is Obama has been giving aid to ISIS. The aid is being delivered to Syrian refugees. The only problem is as soon as it gets there it quickly is absorbed by ISIS.
The deliveries are being transported by aid workers into Syrian cities like Raqqa and Deir ez-Zor. Upon its arrival, aid workers have to pay ISIS to get the aid into the towns. After being bribed, ISIS militants then take the aid by force and use it to recruit new soldiers for the cause.
Here’s what the Daily Beast wrote:
…ISIS or ISIL, [does not] feel any sense of disgrace or indignity (and certainly not gratitude) receiving charity from their foes.
Quite the reverse, the aid convoys have to pay off ISIS emirs (leaders) for the convoys to enter the eastern Syrian extremist strongholds of Raqqa and Deir ez-Zor, providing yet another income stream for ISIS militants, who are funding themselves from oil smuggling, extortion, and the sale of whatever they can loot, including rare antiquities from museums and archaeological sites.
‘The convoys have to be approved by ISIS and you have to pay them: The bribes are disguised and itemized as transportation costs,’ says an aid coordinator who spoke to The Daily Beast on the condition he not be identified in this article.
The kickbacks are either paid by foreign or local nongovernmental organizations tasked with distributing the aid, or by the Turkish or Syrian transportation companies contracted to deliver it.
It’s not like Obama doesn’t know this is happening. That means your tax dollars are currently being used to help grow ISIS’s armed forces. And he’s definitely not doing anything to stop it.
Most of this is due to the fact that Obama is a secret sympathizer to Islam. In the six years since he took office, he’s done far more to accommodate Muslims than he has to speak against their violent ideology.
While aid packages are often given to refugees, what Obama’s allowing to happen under his watch is unacceptable.
Keep in mind, should any type of disaster occur on U.S. soil, there will be no one to take care of you. The government is stretched far too thin, and in a crisis you’ll have to depend on yourself.
