For many Americans, Lt. Col. Oliver North is a hero of gargantuan proportions. I can still remember the t-shirt my father used to wear in the mid-1980’s – it was a drab olive green and had Col. North’s likeness on the front along with the words “Give ‘Em Hell, Ollie!” (My dad was a Marine and while he may have retired… he’ll tell you he’s still a Marine to this day.)
North was on Fox News with Greta Van Susteren this past Monday to discuss the threat that ISIS is growing into. Unlike folks in the Obama administration North believes that the danger we face in ISIS and radical Islam in general is “existential” in nature – not just for the USA but also for Western Civilization! He took to the airwaves on Monday in an effort to shame the Obama administration into action. If we won’t get directly involved by sending combat troops then at the very least we can help supply some of our allies who are in the fight against ISIS as we speak.
The barbarians are at the gates, they have made it very clear, in fact the title of this horrific video is “Taking The Fight To The Land Of The Cross.”
The Pope realizes that. These people were murdered only because they were Christians. The White House can’t even acknowledge that they were anything but “Egyptian civilians.” That is what the White House said.
[Egyptian] President El Sisi asked for American intelligence targeting intelligence before today’s strikes and didn’t get it. King Abdullah of Jordan asked for intelligence data on targets to respond to the murder of a Jordanian aircraft pilot. The Kurds are begging for arms and ammo from the United States, not one bullet has been delivered by the United States. And finally, the Italians are now looking at this as a literally existential threat to western ideals, values, Judeo-Christian system under which we have existed for 2000 years.
