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
Were killing a lot of them and were going to keep killing more of them. So are the Egyptians, so are the Jordanians. Theyre 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 its lack of opportunity for jobs

It’s nice to know that this Idiot is probably making more money than I ever made in my entire life, and I’m a Retired Vice President who worked for a Fortune 500 Company.
Then again, so does Obama.
“She said we have to get to the root cause of why people are attracted to Jihad you know like poverty, jobs, etc “
If poverty and jobs are the cause of jihad, then poor Christians, poor Jews, poor Buddhists, poor atheists, poor Taoists, etc, would all be expected to engage in “holy war”. Instead, it’s only the Muslims. How hard is it to see the common denominator?!?
....and that would be.......inquiring minds seek to know.....maybe a U-tube video.....a book....
Yeah....a book...what book do they all read......?
These people want to be martyrs. Seems only courteous to oblige them.
Name one war in recorded history that was won any other way, moron!
It’s really hard to see when their heads are planted firmly in the riverbottom of de Nile.
I sympathize with that sentiment, but you can’t send missionaries into a warzone. We would need to utterly defeat them first, destroy their will to fight, and then occupy them to protect the missionaries until we could be sure that the change would stick.
It’s not even like we are talking about “denazification”, since the Germans had only been living under that ideology for less than a generation, and not all of them had ever supported it. These guys have been living under this ideology for centuries, and it dominates their whole cultural identity.
Maybe we should pummel the state department with Clauswitz and Sun Tsu, some other material they’ve never read...
John Kerry said that terrorism is caused by global warming.
ISIS does not scare me...not near as much as democrats in power.
It really boils down to cowardice, IMO.
It's not difficult to understand, and is the simplest explanation to the actions of the apologist's and appeasers, IMO.
Ask her if she’d like to lead a good will mission to ISIS.
By definition, how can the left choose good without abandoning itself? The ideas of the left are anti-God.
How many non-buffoons has the Obama Admin hired/appointed?
This response tells me that the obama regime wants to send them taxpayer money because of poverty and lack of jobs.
They think that’s the problem.
These people are living in a fantasy land
And we cannot "drill our way to energy independence".
How about... Drill, baby, drill! & Kill, baby, kill!
Works for me.
Is this satire? This has got to be satire. Right?
Although I know Harf is an idiot, she cannot actually really be this stupid. But working for the most vapid, feckless, ignorant and insane administration in history, I guess she really is.
Nope. Too many would realize everything they believed was wrong. Allah would not allow infidels to obliterate the muslims’ most holiest site on earth. They believe this is impossible and allah would never allow it.
