Although ISIS (ISIL or Islamic State) may be a brutal anti-tolerance organization, but they are also the one group that has given the US Empire a bloody nose. They have put up a real fight against US imperialism and its lackeys. And that is easy to see in the harsh rhetoric of Vice President Joe Biden.
"They should know we will follow them to the gates of hell until they are brought to justice," he huffed and puffed dramatically at an event on the New Hampshire-Maine border. "Because hell is where they will reside. Hell is where they will reside."
I don’t believe in hell, but if I did I would encourage Biden to stay in hell with ISIS, because the US Empire is not really any better morally. I was told years ago that the definition of a liberal is someone who turns into a fascist when they are pushed against a wall. That is certainly the case here for Biden, as he thunders and pounds his fists like a wounded animal.
When ISIS threatened to behead American journalists I’m sure Biden, Obama and the others knew these people were serious and they never had any intentions of giving into to ISIS demands. However, we can be sure that the US Empire has no intention of giving up real estate property they won from Saddam Hussein. Our leaders, including Obama, have no problem using US lives as pawns. These people are expendable no matter how much huffing, puffing and chest pounding these leaders do.
ISIS has no moral right to execute American Journalists or hold them for ransom. That is immoral and shows low moral character for a revolutionary organization. ISIS is not a group we leftists can get behind and support. And yet it is somehow refreshing to see anyone stand up to the evil US Empire and get away with it.
No matter how many threats the US makes about its “long arms” we know they can’t be everywhere at once and they are not invincible.
