Barack Obama does not think that military strength will end ISIS threat, he believes that, “Ideologies are not defeated with guns, they are defeated by better ideas.”

So far, his ‘ideas’ are not working out so well. Had Obama used military strength when ISIS was first forming, they would be nonexistent. 

He took the opportunity to reiterate, “we’ll constantly reaffirm through words and deeds that we will never be at war with Islam,”

Real Clear Politics reported that a after consulting with military leaders at the Pentagon this afternoon President Obama held a press conference on the growing threat of ISIS. President Obama declared the United States “will never be at war with Islam.” Obama also said, “ideologies are not defeated with guns but better ideas.”

“We’ll constantly reaffirm through words and deeds that we will never be at war with Islam,” President Obama said Monday afternoon. “We are fighting terrorists who distort Islam and its victims are mostly Muslims.”

“This challenge of countering violent extremism is not simply a military effort,” the president said. “Ideologies are not defeated with guns but better ideas and more attracting and more compelling vision.”

OBAMA: This broader challenge of countering violent extremism is not simply a military effort. Ideologies are not defeated with guns, they are defeated by better ideas and more attractive and more compelling vision. So the United States will continue to do our part by continuing to counter ISIL’s hateful propaganda, especially online. We’ll constantly reaffirm through words and deeds that we will never be at war with Islam. We are fighting terrorists who distort islam and its victims are mostly Muslims.

We’re also going to partner with Muslim communities as they seek the prosperity and dignity they observe. And we’re going to expect those communities to step up in terms of pushing back as hard as they can in conjunction with other people of good will against these hateful ideologies, particularly when it comes to what we’re teaching young people.

  1. The problem is that the world is too interconnected to fight a WW2 type of war. Ideologies are defeated when the carriers are exterminated. It is clear to any reasonable individual that certain ideologies smother and nullify the humanity of an individual.

    The so-called Age of Discovery by the Europeans was the effort to contain Islam parallel to the then future effort of the free world to contain Communism.

    Perhaps the prerequisite action is to exterminate sociology professors, à la “who shall rid us of these meddling parties?”

  2. These Muslims, and Islamists, are far too brainwashed, to listen to any other reasoning. The are impossible to live with, because, you can not change their minds. That is impossible. They do not come to a country, to fit in, they come to take over your country, and teach their Muslim, Islamism to you. They accept nothing else.

  3. He knows that they cannot be reasoned with because he is one of them, and no one has been able to change his mind and get him to do something that actually makes sense.Like Bomb them until there are no more left,instead he puts all Americans at risk while he pretends to know what he is doing,when we ALL know he does NOT!

  4. Obama continues to speak in riddles when it comes to national defense. He has continued to compromise every American’s safety both here and abroad. We will have to clean house in Washington to stop this by him and rubber band back boned legislators that continue to allow him to weaken our country both monetarily and militarily.
