MSNBC’s Chris Matthews is among the majority of Americans who does not approve of President Obama’s ISIS strategy. During an interview with a State Department spokesperson, Matthews asked what the U.S. could do to stop ISIS. Breitbart,
After wringing his hands for a bit about how the foreign policy of his beloved Barack Obama didn’t seem to be doing much to slow the Islamic State down – “If I were ISIS, I wouldn’t be afraid right now!” – Matthews asked Harf, “Are we killing enough of them?”
Her answer will be studied by connoisseurs of blinkered stupidity for decades to come: “We cannot win this war by killing them. We cannot kill our way out of this war. We need in the longer term – we need the longer term to go after the root causes that leads people to join these groups. Whether it’s lack of opportunity for jobs…”
“We’re not going to be able to stop that in our lifetime, or fifty lifetimes,” Matthews interrupted, a note of increduclity creeping into his voice. “There’s always going to be poor people. There’s always going to be poor Muslims, and as long as there are poor Muslims, the trumpet’s blowing and they’ll join.” Funny, Chris doesn’t talk that way when the discussion turns to our fabulously expensive, comprehensively corrupt, utterly ineffective American welfare state.
