Letter on Obama’s Evasion of the Burning Pilot

The world is shocked by the barbarity of Muslims.  Isis is crucifying children, decapitating women and men and burning a pilot alive.

And yet instead of criticizing the Muslims, Obama reflects upon the deeds of the Christians during the Crusades.  Tell me, what does that have to do with the pilot being set on fire or Foley’s head rolling around like a bowling ball in the desert sand?

Also, the Crusades were a defensive war against the Muslims, not a mad dash to crush Christians and enjoy seventy-two virgins in heaven.

At the National Prayer Breakfast Obama said that Christians shouldn’t get on their high horses.  Of course not.  With Muslims around, their horses will be headless and put in a bed by the Mafia in the movie, “The Godfather.”

He accuses us of arrogance rather than Isis, who is so bold and so not-frightened by us that they publicize the picture of burning of Maaz al-Kassasbeh as if to rub it in our cowardly faces.

Is Obama suffering from attention disorder?  Can’t he concentrate on the butcher on hand?  Can’t he smell the stink of human flesh when Isis burns up Maaz al-Kassasbeh instead of pontificating about the good old Crusader days?

Shame on us.  We elected a man who can’t even shed a tear for a burning pilot.  He’d rather accuse the Crusaders of deeds long dead. What does Obama even know about the Crusaders?  He was supposedly a pothead in school and assumedly did so badly that he’d never release his grades.

How will Obama mourn?  Perhaps he will go out to the driving range and hit a few hooks.

Compare him to the King of Jordan who executes two terrorists and sends his rag-tag air force out to attack Isis.

Obama is not a man of action, despite having a huge army at his control.  Perhaps he’ll send an independent clause or an active verb over to the Middle East to attack Isis. Watch out.  Obama will get you with a plosive sentence ending or punch you with punctuation.
