ISIS is a ragtag horde of hoodlums numbering only three to four thousand in strength. The have no ships, no aircraft carriers, no airplanes or helicopters, and no pilots to fly or mechanics to maintain any that might fall into their hands. This gaggle of terrorist Sunni decapitators is not a threat to the United States.
Furthermore, they have pushed deep into Shia territory, and they have done so by exploiting areas of weakness – not all of them contiguous. As a result, they are surrounded by enemies, from the Kurds and the Shia Iraqi army to Shia militias and the Turkish and Syrian militaries.
They have their hands full surviving and have no time to plot terrorist attacks against the United States – which is why ISIS spokesman Abu Mohammed al-Adnani called for "lone wolf" attacks against France, Australia, Canada, and other infidel countries.
There are, of course, ISIS sympathizers within the United States, due in large part to Obama's open border sabotage. But they are uncoordinated, untrained, and poorly equipped. They can certainly do some damage, as the Boston Marathon bombers did and as ISIS sympathizers did recently in Canada, but they are hardly a threat to our National security.
We should, however, be focusing on countering these domestic terrorists rather than on religious wars half a world away. The reason we are not is political. The ISIS threat is a weapon of mass distraction – a diversionary tactic appropriated to distract us from the morass of incompetence and corruption that is the result of six years of a clueless and ideologically motivated presidency.
Thank God the American people have finally come to their senses. The sleeping giant has awakened, and on Tuesday last week, he spoke. There will be no silencing him from this point on.
