State Department on Islamic State: We can’t win ‘by killing them’ — need to get them jobs

Washington Times: Marie Harf, a spokeswoman for the U.S. State Department, said America can’t win against the Islamic State “by killing them” and ought instead to focus on addressing what she claimed was the root problem — their poor economy — and help them get jobs.

“We’re killing a lot of them, and we’re going to keep killing more of them,” she said during a televised segment on “Hardball” with Chris Matthews. “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 a lack of opportunity for jobs, whether …”

If they had a job, this wouldn't happen. Got it?

If they had a job, this wouldn’t happen. Got it?

Mr. Matthews then cut her off and said: “We’re not going to be able to stop that in our lifetime or 50 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?”

Ms. Harf dug in and insisted improving the economic opportunities for the terrorist group is the key to turning back their terror, The Right Scoop reported.

“We can work with countries around the world to help improve their governance,” she said. “We can help them build their economies so they can have job opportunities for these people.”

  1. First, Obama insists ISIS — who call themselves the ISLAMIC State — is not Islamic. Now, this insane administration tells us we shouldn’t kill these jihadists, but that what they need are jobs. That presumes poverty drove Muslims to become murderous jihadists, which is SIMPLY NOT TRUE. Every evidence we have is that jihadists do NOT come from impoverished jobless backgrounds.

    • Great post, DCG!

      “We cannot kill our way out of this war.”
      WHAT?!!!!! Tell that to Harry Truman!!!

      Economic deprivation? A couple of jihadists grew up in a town next to mine, come from wealthy families, and flew to Syria to fight for the cause.

      And of course, where did all the shiny new Toyota trucks come from? The proceeds of goat farming? The Saudis and other wealthy Arabs are funding the hell out of this.

  2. Ok, Ms Smarty Pants, tell me why the Somalian immigrant from Minnesota, who had a steady job with benefits at the airport, decided to leave that cushy life and go fight along side the muslim/islamist/terriorist known as ISIS/ISIL/IS? Please explain this to me because I just don’t get it. In fact I don’t get how anyone can be as stupid as you are or how any can be as evil as jihadist john. But then I know that God Almighty is in control and all these things are happening because God told us so many years ago and Revelations has to happen, whether you or anybody else in your circle believes it or not. Praise the Lord, my Jesus Christ come quickly!

  3. And yet the latest Gallup Poll has Obama’s approval rating at 50%. Look around you: Despite everything he’s done, 1 out of every 2 people you see actually approves of the POS. That means half of the U.S. population or nearly 159.5 million Americans, are either clueless or just plain evil.

    • I vote for that half of the population that spent money to see ““50 Shades of Gross” as both evil and clueless! Let’s face it, for years and years we have been told from the highest levels of gov’t, education and church leadership that there is no right or wrong. We have accepted abortion, sodomy (I don’t like the term same-sex marriage because I think it is an oxomoron — it is something you just can’t have), and evil in all walks of life. We have a major spiritual problem in this world and I pray daily that the Lord Jesus Christ comes quickly.

    • As sad as it is the answer is clueless. We’ve seen the interviews and fake petitions by on the street reporters. The young people in this country are uneducated-many in college. I have lost count of the astounding stories in the past year showing horrific events taking place in our schools. From teachers bullying students to expelling little kids over pop tarts to pornographic material in the classroom and yet no big protests going on over these kinds of things. Nor is there a mass exodus of students out of the public school system. I would bet most parents haven’t even looked to see what their kids are being taught even after all of this has been exposed. The schools are a failure but our kids don’t have to grow up knowing nothing. Where the schools are failing parents could make up the difference. I see so much apathy in America today it’s mind numbing. If we are not even willing to do right by our kids we get what we deserve.

    • Obama has never been critical of Islam, but he is always pointing out the faults of Christians. He probably thinks they will come after him if he criticizes Islam.

    • Considering this country is fat become a 3rd world backwater swamp, they are fast becoming the majority. These primitives have only a sense of their 50 shades of blackness as an identity. You could run the devil himself for president and if he was black he’d win by a landslide. Add to these piles of protoplasm the vast under 4o pool of white zombies the system has created.

      In a rational thinking society that still has a functioning moral compass resident Lucifer would never have made it to the primaries, let alone residing in any position of power

      in ending, can anyone trust mainstream polls, statistics are regularly manipulated to serve the elite. For all we know Lucifer’s ratings could be in the toilet, but it’s probably due more to the primitive tribal demographic the US is not buried in

  4. What is primarily driving this is that for the last 20+ years, the Saudis have been planting mosques and muslim schools all over the world, with the plan of dominating the world. The majority of these mosques are run by radical jihadists, like the ones in Boston and Cambridge. If you want to keep this thing from growing, you will have to remove the imams and clerics who are relentlessly stirring up genocide. That, of course, assumes our government will develop the courage to call this enemy by its name.

    And then you will have to remove those who keep buying and building the jihadist armies with their oil money.

  5. Beheadings, burnings, now this economic mumbo jumbo. Enough is enough! Send in 30-50,000 Marines along with Special Forces and hopefully the British SAS (the best of the best). Get the job done in two months, take back town by town just like we took back the Japanese held islands in WW2. The Japanese were every bit as fanatical as these Isis punks, better soldiers, and usually fought to the last man. Take a few prisoners for intel, exterminate the rest. Case closed.

    • Amen. After this is done, give all muslim/islamist/terriorist within our borders a one way ticket to the muslim land of their choice. That way they can live out their lives according to their own believe system. Let’s face it muslim/islamist/terriorist cannot co-exist with any other people group.

  6. I don’t know how much more ridiculous the nonsense and lies being spewed by these people has to get before Americans say enough. The liberals have been very successful in dumbing down at least a generation. They won’t get it until bad things are right in their face and even then they won’t have a clue what’s hit them. If you have children and don’t want them to be idiots it’s really up to the parent today to make sure YOU educate your kids at home about a lot of things because the schools are a miserable failure by design.

  7. The American public should be outraged, not just those with FOTM, at the insulting way we are considered stupid. Attempting to present an explanation of problems as is being done shows a far lower level of intelligence on their part than the intelligence of those they are addressing.

That seems to be the catch all and cure all in the clan of the porch monkey. They and their demonic religion are a cancer that needs to be bombed back to the stone age

  15. Islam is not a free-thinking unit that is able to amend its practice to meet the Western desires of peace, because its “constitution” of the Quran demands that there be no alternative path apart from jihad. If Ms Harf truly speaks for the U.S. State Department and the Obama administration, then all Americans should be appalled. They are completely delusional.

  19. On matters involving Obama, the credibility of a Gallup Poll is approaching that of an Obama speech. Finally, people are saying what I hope they have known for some time. Why, even people in politics are working their way to telling us that Obama is not patriotic. With that, mainstream professional journalists can not be far behind.
    On a separate subject, Stella’s replacement, Lois, erred in the presentation of the fourth word of my Feb. 19, 11:50 a.m. comment, “declamation”, got that, Lois? I thought you all would want to know.
