Fighting Islamists Isn’t as Costly as Their Atrocities

Arnold Ahlert: “In Obama’s twisted mind, Netanyahu remains ‘problematic’ because he’s about to inject a dose of reality into the president’s fairy tale pursuit of a no-nukes agreement with Iran, despite ten years of failure in that regard. It is a failure also steeped in denial in that it completely ignores the nihilistic imperative that animates the Iranian mullahs. It is their heartfelt belief that they must facilitate the re-emergence of the Twelfth or Hidden Imam, an Islamic second coming that requires a period of worldwide chaos to engender that re-emergence. Obama and his equally myopic "allies” that comprise the P5+1 negotiating team, namely the U.S., Russia, China, the UK, and France, plus Germany, have dismissed that religious imperative as nonsense. … It’s astounding how many Americans have ‘moved past’ 9/11, as if we’re not facing a threat every bit as lethal today, if not more so. Do feckless Western leaders need something akin to that level of carnage to move the military needle? Or will it take a nuke exploding over a Western city? Think about that scenario the next time some leftist blowhard talks about how much money we’ve ‘wasted’ fighting Islamic terror. Really? What would it cost to completely re-build Chicago, New York, or Los Angeles – in different locations no less, because of radioactivity? The time for pretense is over. We either wipe out as many Islamists as we can, while we can, or we will pay a price beyond imagining.“
