Obama's Anti-ISIS Strategy Summarized In 1 Cartoon

Tyler Durden's picture


"Do nothing stupid..."



Source: Cagle

Bonus Strategy Chart... (via William Banzai)


Remember of course, none of this matters...

Since, as long as Qatar has a strategy on how to progress on its Gazprom-bypassing pipeline to Europe, whether Obama had a strategy or not, is completely irrelevant.

Wasnt there a prophecy that predicted that Arabs would set on fire the cities of Italy, kidnap the sitting (and last) pope and kill him?

?? I don't know. But there is breaking news about ISIS being threat to the Pope.  Britain and Italy just went on High Alert.  Obama is out fundrasing.

Here's the Link to Judicial Watch for the original story on the high alert put of today on the US border..

Governments going on 'high terror alert' just means more loss of liberty for the average Joe and more funding for MIC.

Here's a new name for the moronic media, law professors and all other academics who sit passively and do nothing, and local, county, and state politicians:



These dipshits haven't got the vision to see beyond their noses, or the courage to do anything but move straight forward, prodded by their master's whip.

Obama? EWB
Wolf Blitzer? EWB
Every actor in Hollywood? EWB
Brian Williams? NPR? CSPAN?....
Well, you get the idea. Send that meme viral! It fits them all so well

Let Kissinger explain it.  The Wall Street Journal just had an except from Kissinger's new book, "World Order," an incomprehensible melange of facts and assumptions.  From the WSJ description of Dr. K: "Dr. Kissinger served as national security adviser and secretary of state under Presidents Nixon and Ford. Adapted from his book "World Order," to be published Sept. 9 by the Penguin Press."  The only surprise is that Kissinger's book did not get a September 11 release date.

Step 1/ Obama is gonna go live on MSM and commit suicide 

Step 2/ Obama says he will arise on third day

 Step3/ On third day he plans to read from the teleprompter and blame the Pope for putting a hex on him

Step 4/ The war is ON against the Vatician

Assad is not going anywhere, and whatever Uncle Scam does at this point will stengthen him.

I'm expecting Russians forces to be invited into Syria to put down ISIS.

Now that would be a game changer.

ISIS is CIA/Massod:  Why would he have an effective plan of action?  They are just selling theater to the sheep.  But you should be concerned about the purpose as it is suggested that their actions (false flag) will include activity within US borders.  Could just be further police state stuff.

Truth tellers come in all shapes and sizes in DC. That last one just happened to be a short, squat, Phoenician instead of the usual tall, spindly, feminine, Egyptian. I's almost impossible to filter out the truth from the lies when you have clown car full of DC messengers and propaganda being thrown at you.

During WWII, we dropped over 3 Million Tons of bombs on the enemy at a cost of about 288 Billion Dollars.

Inflation adjusted thats about . . . 3 ~ 4 Trillion Dollars.

And with that 3 or 4 Trillion Dollars, we defeated, Germany , Italy, and Japan, whose armies composed of The most advanced Tanks, Airplanes, Missiles, Submarines, Navy Vessels and Artillery at the time.


The "war on terror" by some estimates has already cost us around 4.4 Trillion Dollars in todays dollars, and to add insult to injury, that money was BORROWED, which means we will be paying interest on that 4~+ Trillion Dollars for QUITE SOME TIME.

Lets say its 4 Trillion Dollars over 30 Year at 3.29% You are probably going to have to pay back around 6~to 6.5 TRILLION dollars to extinguish that debt of 4 Trillion, so the cost of the war is over 4 Trillion Dollars, plust atleast another 2.3~2.5 Trillion Dollars in the future.

And this is fighting against invisible people hiding in caves running around with machettes and anti-tank mines made out of old soup cans and trip wire.


Anyone who can honestly look at that and say that America is still a "super power" is delusional.


In less than 80 years, we went from taking down the most modern mechanized armies of the world for 3~4 Trillion to not being able to wipe out a few cave moles for the same amount of money. . . .  The only ones benefiting from the war are BANKERS, because they are issuing all this FIAT currency backed by OUR GOVT DEBT and living off OUR LABOR without having to lift a finger their entire lives, and for the entire lives of their progeny... and their progeny.


War is birthing a new "master race" and if lets say for a moment that the entire banking scam was perpetrated by Nazi affiliated individuals . . . if we fast forward another 30-40 years of this it would be entirely possible that by 2050 the history books might be re-written to declare that the Nazis won WWII.

It always makes me smile when Americans claim to have defeated Nazi Germany.  First there was the little matter of about 20 other major countries fighting against Germany (including the whole British Commonwealth) and the first Continental battles between US and German forces took place less than a year before the war's end.  The Western Front was always a side-show for Germany, which incurred 80% of its casualties on the Eastern Front, an arena which also cost the lives of an estimated 20 million Soviets.

 The problem is not "dumb" leaders making "mistakes" in how the US goes about seeking
Pentagon full-spectrum global domination, petrodollar &TBTF financial dominance, TPP-NAFTA-IMF trade dominance, NATO expansion,
Prohibition II(CIA drug war), military alliances with repressive governments (Israel, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, etc.), a militarized "Homeland Security" force, the removal of Constitutional protections (habeas corpus, torture, war-making authority, etc.).

Those who argue that they won't make the same "mistakes" others did
won't fix anything by being "smarter",
because there is not a good way to get,

nor any good way to maintain such US policy objectives.

Dont be surprised this time if the false-flag attack will be in London UK. They want to frighten Mercans, not prompt them to ask searching questions. Somewhere well known but irrelevant to US interests, about 10:00am EST on a Saturday or Monday. A major sporting event, one of the big malls, or a new signature financial building. PM Cameron has already raised UK state of readiness to 'put the kettle on for a nice cup of tea' which is only one down from 'no time for cucumber sandwiches'.

What sordid and despicable times we allowed ourselves to live in.
