Remember those videos that circulated of the Islamic State (IS) beheading reporters? Boy did that get people upset. Suddenly the entire world was ready to bomb the living shit out of the Middle East. Demands were made for the head of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the IS’s leader. And Obama himself took to television to remind people that he had no issue dropping bombs on the Middle East.
So how does America react when one of the IS’s biggest funding sources and perpetrator of beheadings loses its king? With sorrow and a bunch of nice words about how great of a man he was:
US President Barack Obama expressed his personal sympathies and those of the American people, on the death of King Abdullah.
“As a leader, he was always candid and had the courage of his convictions. One of those convictions was his steadfast and passionate belief in the importance of the US-Saudi relationship as a force for stability and security in the Middle East and beyond,” he said.
Isn’t it funny how American politicians beat the war drum against radical Islam because of the IS but claim that one of the most destabilizing elements in the Middle East, one that shares many of the IS’s beliefs, is a force for stability? How can anybody take anything these clowns in marble buildings say seriously?
