This may come as a shock, but John Kerry just told a ridiculous lie.
The Islamic State is desperately lashing out in Europe because its base in the Middle East is rapidly eroding, Secretary of State John Kerry said on Friday in Brussels, where he traveled to demonstrate the United States’ support for Belgium three days after bombs killed 31 people, including at least two Americans…
“The very reason that Daesh is resorting to actions outside of the Middle East is that its fantasy of a caliphate is collapsing before their eyes,” he said, using the Arabic acronym for the organization. “Its territory is shrinking every day, its leaders are being decimated, its revenue resources are dwindling, and its fighters are fleeing,” he said.
Oh. Okay. So, ISIS is reaching outside the Middle East because they’re getting… weaker. All these innocent people outside the Middle East are being murdered because ISIS is… dying.
That explains this breaking news from Reuters:
A suicide attacker detonated an explosive belt in a park outside Baghdad on Friday, killing 26 people and wounding 71, said the security head in Babel province where the bomb – claimed by Islamic State – went off.
Don’t tell us that ISIS is on the way out, John Kerry. Tell the loved ones of the victims.
If ISIS is killing this many people while in its death throes, I’m not looking forward to the toll of innocent lives after Obama declares total victory.
