HMM, I GUESS 50 WASN’T ENOUGH … THIS FOOL JUST HAS NO CLUE. WHO IS THE JV?
What a joke, Barack Obama announced Monday that he plans to send 250 more special forces to Syria to help build on his so-called successes against ISIS. Oh, what would that be Mr. President? Maybe you could tell us the plan and what you think Syria might look like in 2-5-10 years? I pray for the day we can have a Commander in Chief that actually has a clue and wants to truly defeat the enemy, not use our brave young men and women of out Armed Forced as pawns. Maybe it is just better that he go golf, attend baseball games and pick March Madness brackets.
President Barack Obama announced on Monday the biggest expansion of U.S. ground troops in Syria since the civil war there began, saying he would dispatch 250 special forces soldiers to help local militia to build on successes against Islamic State.
The new deployment increases U.S. forces in Syria six-fold to about 300. While the total U.S. ground force is still small by comparison to other American deployments, defense experts said it could help shift the momentum in Syria by giving more Syrian fighters on the ground access to U.S. close air support.
Announcing the decision in Germany at the end of a six-day foreign tour, Obama said the move followed on victories over Islamic State that clawed back territory from the hard-line Sunni Islamist group.
“Given the success, I’ve approved the deployment of up to 250 additional U.S. personnel in Syria, including special forces to keep up this momentum,” Obama said in a speech at a trade fair in the northern city of Hanover, the last stop on a trip that has taken him to Saudi Arabia and Britain.
“They’re not going to be leading the fight on the ground, but they will be essential in providing the training and assisting local forces as they continue to drive ISIL back,” he added, using an acronym for Islamic State, also known as ISIS.
Folk Singer James Twyman Travels to Syria and Hopes Peace Concert for ISIS Will Win Over Terror Group
HMM, WHY DO I THINK THAT ISIS WON’T BE AS RECEPTIVE?
Despite warning from the State Department, folk singer James Twyman, of Portland, Oregon, plans to travel to Syria next week and perform a concert for ISIS. Twyman says that he believes he can soften the hearts of these fundamental Islamists who make a living out of beheading Westerners, throwing gays off of buildings and summarily executing innocent women and children and killing their fellow Muslims. We may want to add liberal, moonbat folk singers to the list as well.
Oh my, how do we think this is going to end? Can you say, no well. The only think that might prevent this misguided individual from having his head cut off by ISIS is the fact that they might be laughing so hard. To think that Twyman believe “kumbaya” songs will soften these savages, might be just as insane as the ideology of ISIS itself.
James Twyman: Be the Change
An Oregon folk singer plans to leave next week to serenade the Islamic State, and he intends to bring the black-clad barbarians a prayerful message of peace — despite a warning from the State Department that his life could be in danger.
James Twyman, of Portland, Ore., told FoxNews.com he feels a “calling” and believes he can soften the hearts of the Islamist army known for beheading Westerners, throwing gays off of buildings and summarily executing innocent women and children.
“It’s going to be pretty powerful,” Twyman said, referring to his plan to have those attending and others around the world sing and pray for peace at the same time. “When people come together and focus on something in a positive way…there’s scientific evidence that it can change things for the better.”
The author and self-styled “Peace Troubadour” has put traditional prayers from various faiths to song. Twyman performed in Baghdad in the late 1990s after Operation Desert Storm; in Bosnia and Croatia during the Balkan War in 1995 and has even performed previously in Syria to spread his message of peace through song.
Twyman leaves Jan. 20, and plans to stop in Italy before heading to Israel. From there, he will then cross over the northern border shared with Syria to a small Druze village.
While that village, Majdal Shams, is occupied by Israel, Twyman said he has contacts there trying to set up a venue in ISIS-controlled territory. Either way, the show is set for Jan. 31.
We wish him well, but why do I fell this might be the last concert that this folk singer will ever be performing? It would appear that JWF thinks this might be his farewell tour as well.
Pope Francis issues Christmas Day Prayer … Calls For Prayers for Syria, Libya Peace and Condemns Radical-Islamic “Brutal Acts of Terrorism”
ITS ABOUT TIME THE POPE MADE ISIS AND RADICAL ISLAM A GREATER THREAT THAN GLOBAL WARMING …
Today, Pope Francis issued a Christmas Day prayer from the central balcony of St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome that called for peace for Syria and Libya, prayers for the suffering and denounced the radical Islamist “monstrous evil” and atrocities.” The Pope made reference to the heinous terror attacks in Paris earlier this year. He also made mention of the attacks in Egypt’s airspace and in Beirut, Mali and Tunisia. The Pope further went in to denounce the ongoing conflicts in Africa, the Middle East and Ukraine and issued words of consolation to Christians being persecuted for their faith in many parts of the world. Isn’t it quite amazing that pretty much all that the Pope is referencing as “monstrous evil” and atrocities” is at the hands of radical Islam? The Pope stated, “Only God’s mercy can free humanity from the many forms of evil, at times monstrous evil, which selfishness spawns in our midst.”
Pope Francis issued a Christmas Day prayer that recent U.N.-backed peace processes for Syria and Libya will quickly end the suffering of their people, denouncing the “monstrous evil” and atrocities they have endured and praising countries that have taken in refugees.
Speaking from the central balcony of St. Peter’s Basilica, Francis issued a plenary indulgence for all Catholics in hopes of spreading the church’s message of mercy in a world torn by war, poverty and extremist attacks. The sun-soaked St. Peter’s Square was under heavy security, as it has been since the Nov. 13 Paris attacks by Islamic extremists that left 130 dead.
An indulgence is an ancient church tradition related to the forgiveness of sins. Francis announced it after delivering his annual “Urbi et Orbi” (To the city and the world) speech listing global hotspots and his prayers for an end to human suffering.
Francis referred to the “brutal acts of terrorism” that struck the French capital this year, as well as attacks in Egypt’s airspace and in Beirut, Mali and Tunisia. He denounced the ongoing conflicts in Africa, the Middle East and Ukraine and issued words of consolation to Christians being persecuted for their faith in many parts of the world.
“They are our martyrs of today,” he said.
