"The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of the fool to the left." Ecclesiastes 10:2
There has been little notice of the president’s insistent use of the acronym “ISIL” to describe the Sunni forces currently rampaging across Iraq, executing Iraqi military and creating a new massive refugee population in an already unstable area.
Most, like this publication, continue to use the widely accepted acronym ISIS, the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria or al-Sham, but both describe the same murderous organization. The difference is that the Levant describes a territory far greater than simply Iraq and Syria. It’s defined as this: The Levant today consists of the island of Cyprus, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, Palestine, and part of southern Turkey.
Why would Obama prefer ISIL? An “army” of that territorial magnitude takes the focus off the two countries that many believe define Obama’s continued failure in the Middle East. Most likely, he would rather eliminate the connection between the chaos in Iraq with his inaction in Syria.” here
I was stunned and then laughed a loud, the first time Obama said, “ISIL” instead of the correct term of ISIS.
In less than 24 hours, I heard the term repeated by the Flubber- in- Chief, and those in his regime… and a few loyalist in the corrupt, Liberal media used the term. I knew it had to mean something but exactly what? And here is the explanation — Obama simply trying to divert any blame correctly owned to him.
It was his decision to abandon Iraq, regardless of the lies he now tells. His selective memory must have forgotten to remind him that he ran on leaving Iraq on said set date. His memory, as that of most Democrats, is selective, convenient and filled with falsities.
So there it is. Our dear leader doesn’t want Americans or the world to remember that his inaction allowed ISIS to flourish and grown. Not nearly as wildly humorous as his idiotic blundering of ‘corpsman’ into “corpse-man” — his literal, “I see dead people moment”. But still amusing.
