McCain: “ISIS is not that strong”
Sounding a lot like his pal Barack Obama who claimed just prior to the deadly Islamic jihadist terror attacks in Paris that “ISIS is contained,” John McCain appeared on CBS’s “Face the Nation” Sunday to lob word bombs at GOP 2016 presidential front-runner Donald Trump. During the interview, McCain actually said, “…ISIS is not that strong…”
McCain, who lost his own 2008 presidential bid, barely carrying his home state of Arizona, was interviewed by host John Dickerson from the U.S. embassy in Baghdad alongside his frequent adviser and traveling companion Lindsey Graham, (R-SC) a less than single digit presidential candidate.
The former GOP presidential nominee who will be 80 by Election Day, and now running for his sixth six-year senate term, accused 2016 Republican hopefuls of “harping on the Syrian refugee crisis,” while, in his opinion, the U.S. faces much more substantial threats.
“As all of our candidates bloviate about the refugees, [Syrian President] Bashar Assad is a major cause of the refugees which are now flooding Europe and causing such consternation in the United States,” he said. “A no-fly zone will provide a refuge at least for some of these refugees.”
John McCain opined that what he termed Donald Trump’s “’divisive rhetoric’ is only serving to turn the international Muslim community against the U.S.”
Donald Trump wants implementation of a system to keep tabs on the thousands of Syrian refugees Obama is bringing into the U.S. The majority of state governors want a halt to the influx. Despite Obama’s claims they are “subjected to vigorous screening and security checks,” experts say doing so is virtually impossible. Obama makes this assertion despite the fact that several of the Paris terrorists entered Europe as part of the flood of “refugees” leaving Syria.
Referring to Donald Trump, John McCain said, “Oh, I think it (his stated opinion) has an interesting effect of turning Muslims all over the world against the United States of America, which is 99.44 percent people who practice an honorable religion.”
That remaining .56 percent is sure keeping busy slaughtering vast numbers of innocent people as they shout “Allahu Akbar!” (Allah is greater) and train their children to carry on gruesome beheading traditions. This list includes radical Islamic terrorist attacks in just the past 30 days.
And Barack Obama? Unable to even acknowledge the radical Muslim component of terrorism, he spoke Monday at the COP21 climate change summit in Paris, warning the assembled world leaders not to be distracted from focusing on the threat of global warming which he says is a root cause of the bloody violence. Sticking with his agenda, he blamed America.
