    I posted this peculiarity last week. It has become increasingly conspicuous, annoying even, that while the rest of the world refers to the cockroaches beheading innocent people, including children, across Syria and Iraq, as ISIS, or IS, King Hussein, and the rest of his administration insist on referring to the lice-ridden scumbags as ISIL.

    “Tomaytoes/tomahtoes?” Hmmmmmm, I don’t think so. If you look closely at the literal, geographical difference between the two acronyms, it appears that there is much more to the story.

    ISIS is an acronym for the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, which includes only territory within the clear borders of those two sovereign countries. ISIL is an acronym for the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant.

    The “Levant” includes Israel.

    Ostensibly, anyone referring to this nest of rats as ISIL, and only as ISIL, while the rest of the civilized world refers to them as ISIS, is denying the existence of Israel, a point much harder to support had not that talking point made its way to every official mouthpiece of every agency and department within the federal government.

    Does Obama's use of ISIL also mean he denies the existence of Egypt, Turkey, and Jordan?

    Obama's ROSE colored glasses?

    Good point. After all, he thinks droves of illegals are merely refugees.The world according to Obama is not shaping up to be what he was led to believe by all those liberal, American intellectuals he studied under at Yale.

    He should have retained those experienced generals. Now he is surrounded with people that think like him, see the world like him, and reality is setting in.

    He thinks ISIS/ISIL is not a religious group. And he refuses to acknowledge their declared war against us. He still sees these guys as a rag tag gang from the streets of Chicago. Oh how wrong he is, and in the meantime the safety of Americans is at growing risk.

    You do understand that the warmongers need a pretext to start wars and increase defense spending right?

    The head choppers and crucifiers are a vital asset of the military industrial complex. It's one of those symbiotic relationships. The more head choppers and crucifiers the more you all will agree to increasing the MIC's paycheck.

    Long wars pay much better than short wars.

    Never ending wars means never ending profits.

    War is a racket. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F3_EXqJ8f-0
