State Depart: ‘ISIS problem is poverty, no jobs’


Here is the latest from one of the two Valley girls over at the State Department, Marie Harf.  Clueless. If this indeed represents the regime’s thinking, and I have no reason to think it doesn’t, we are indeed lost. . Chris Mathews for once didn’t have his tingle. All we need to do is redistribute more of our stuff. I am sure this would have worked out swell during WWII. Here is part of the interview.

State Department Spokesperson Marie Harf told Chris Matthews tonight that we cannot win this war with ISIS by killing them. She said we have to get to the root cause of why people are attracted to Jihad — you know like poverty, jobs, etc…

 

“We’re killing a lot of them and we’re going to keep killing more of them. So are the Egyptians, so are the Jordanians. They’re in this fight with us. But we cannot win this war by killing them. We cannot kill our way out of this war. We need in the medium to longer term to go after the root causes that leads people to join these groups, whether it’s lack of opportunity for jobs…”

MATTHEWS: How do we stop this? I don’t see it. I see the Shia militias coming out of Baghdad who are all Shia. The Sunnis hate them. The Sunnis are loyal to ISIS rather than going in with the Shia. You’ve got the Kurds, the Jordanian air force and now the Egyptian air force. But i don’t see any — If i were ISIS, I wouldn’t be afraid right now. I can figure there is no existential threat to these people. They can keep finding places where they can hold executions and putting the camera work together, getting their props ready and killing people for show. And nothing we do right now seems to be directed at stopping this.

HARF: Well, I think there’s a few stages here. Right now what we’re doing is trying to take their leaders and their fighters off the battlefield in Iraq and Syria. That’s really where they flourish.

MATTHEWS: Are we killing enough of them?
MATTHEWS: We’re not going to be able to stop that in our lifetime or fifty lifetimes. 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. We can’t stop that, can we?

HARF: We can work with countries around the world to help improve their governance. We can help them build their economies so they can have job opportunities for these people…

    Idiocy, plain and simple.

    Well Harf gave us Dept. of State’s diagnosis.
    Defense Dept. spokesperson said about the same…
    “We discourage other nations from taking a part in Libya’s issues through violence,” Kirby said. “We want the issues solved in Libya to be done peacefully and through good governance and politics and not violence.”

    Marie Harf, spoken as a Muslim Marxist would have a good spokesgirl to speak.
    On a serious note, because there is a serious side to many occurences of mass slaughter, have you read chapters 8 and 9 of the Koran? The President has. On the other hand, if you really know what is going on, you must believe that the American public is incapable of looking even casually for the facts.

    Reblogged this on LadyRaven's Whisky In A Jar – OH! and commented:
    That is the funniest, most ignorant thing I have heard since 9/11. They just need money/jobs. Hey! How about education Marie? Or maybe just a little HUG!
    She needs to research the bio’s of the 9/11 terrorists. Matthews not calling her on that just shows his ignorance.
    For some schooling – they could try – http://www.answeringmuslims.com/ – OH DAMN – seems his top story is – Michigan Muslim Terrence Lavaron Thomas Stabs Two People for Being Unbelievers!
    And you KNOW she and her ilk get their talking points directly from the White House. Does that mean that is the kind of pathetic crap we will start hearing directly from HUSSEIN Obama?
    THESE are America’s leaders?!?!?

    Well, debaathification was an unmitigated disaster and certainly is the main cause for this particular situation. And it is a historical fact that religious extremism is always the result of a vacuum of stable and functional state. That said, you can’t have a stable and functional state in the midst of chaos. The chaos is going to have to be resolved first.

    It’s my understanding that one of the best recruiting tools of ISIS is that they pay well. So, THEY HAVE JOBS! Their job is killing infidels.
