Why are we trying to defeat ISIS?
Yesterday, they gave Axis of Evil Iran some payback.
Iran, the #1 global sponsor of terrorism, got terrorized.
In a brazen attack on Iran's parliament and shrine, ISIS attacked these hardened targets.
Now, while all terrorism is terrible and should be condemned, isn't there an old saying:
"Fight fire with fire."
In this case, sadly but maybe the truth is the only way to fully defeat terrorism is by:
The only way to win the war on terror is to let terror fight terror!
No, we should not resort to such barbarism!
But as the world allegedly did in the Iran-Iraq war (and so many other conflicts), we armed both sides and let them go at it.
Similarly here, let ISIS and Iran's terrorists duke it out until they are both gone for good or hopefully they come to their senses and stop the madness once and for all!
Civilians are innocent and should never be targets, but the terrorists killing the terrorists is fair game.
Sure, carrots are preferable to a stick, but have any of the carrots worked at all or are we not at a global terrorism all time high after 16 years fighting the war on terror since 9/11.
Why wait until ISIS and/or Iran hits us again and again with terror wave after terror wave or eventually with unfathomable weapons of mass destruction?
Devil kill devil--and let peace and sanity reign supreme for the rest of the civilized world. ;-)
