President Obama will address the nation at 9:00 pm ET about the threat from ISIS, the White House announced today.
And he has a strategy ready! Or he will by 9:00.
According to the White House the White House:
The President will deliver an address to the nation from the State Floor of the White House Wednesday night at 9:00 PM EDT to discuss with the American people the threat posed by ISIL and to lay out the United States’ strategy for degrading and ultimately destroying the terrorist group.
The address comes on the eve of the 13th anniversary of the September 11th attacks.
I can already sense the ruthlessness of the new strategy. No doubt ISIS will want to tune in to see what they’re in for, and I’ve figured out, the speech is going to be 4:00 am IST – that is, Islamic State Time! It’s even earlier than morning prayers. They are going to be some sleepy terrorists. Watch Obama order an increase the bombing runs Thursday to take advantage of their drowsiness.
Not sure I get this degrade and destroy stuff. Why not just destroy, and skip the degrading? Why give them time to adjust to our strategy? Or provide a big window of opportunity for them to dispatch terrorists to the United States?
And exactly what does he mean by degrade anyway? Probably, simply to insult them. Obama is going to insult the terrorists, and then kill them. That’ll teach ’em
