Warren: Destroying ISIS should be 'No. 1 priority ' (Yes, Lizzie Warren)
The Hill ^ | 9/3/2014 | Jessie Byrnes

Posted on 09/04/2014 4:57:04 AM PDT by jalisco555

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) on Wednesday said that the Obama administration should make defeating the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) its top priority.

"ISIS is growing in strength. It has money, it has organization, it has the capacity to inflict real damage. So when we think about a response we have to think about how to destroy that," Warren told Yahoo's Katie Couric.

Warren agreed that "time is of the essence."

"We need to be working now, full-speed ahead, with other countries, to destroy ISIS. That should be our No. 1 priority," she said in a wide-ranging interview promoting her latest book, A Fighting Chance.

President Obama said earlier in the day from Estonia that the U.S. would "degrade and destroy" the terrorist group. But later he said the country should work with allies to "shrink" the group's "sphere of influence," effectively making it a "manageable problem."

Seems that the democrats are finally recognizing the peril they have created for themselves.

She would have more credibility on this issue than Hillary.

Hillary helped create ISIS. Lizzie didn’t

I have a feeling Speaketh with Cheekbones means send ISIS welfare payments because inherent poverty is causing their mayhem. It’s big businesses fault and she’ll destroy the savages with EBT cards and Obamacare.

On this thread we’re discussing how a woman’s bad choices resulted in more trouble for her. What you’ll never, ever hear from Democrats is that their own president and his leadership team (think Hillary Clinton) played a key role in creating this mess. They may recognize the peril, but they’ll never take responsibility for it.

I disagree. Warren was a leading advocate for total withdrawal from Iraq. She got what she wanted and here we are.

Most journalists are left-wingers, so I’m wondering if watching a few of them get their heads sawed off has finally awoken liberals to the reality that Islamists want to kill them too.

Oh no…the latest crISIS. What will we then do about ERASEUS (European Radicals Aggressively Seizing Every UnIslamic State)?

Let’s extract ourselves militarily and monetarily from this latest iteration of a foreign entanglement and see how this plays out without us.

The “religion of peace” (/sarcasm) has enough manpower and weaponry to defeat those (like ISIS) who have hijacked (/sarcasm) the “religion of peace” (/sarcasm) Let them duke/nuke it out.

Say what you will about Obama, at least he's an honest man. When he said he didn't have a strategy for dealing with ISIS he meant it. And apparently still means it.

Like a stopped clock Warren is apparently right twice a day.

1) ISIS needs to be bombed into oblivion.
2) Eric Cantor is a selfish backstabbing weasel.

Her moonbat base will not like this. I believe it was on Kos, or maybe HuffPo, that one of the main contributors recently stood up for ISIS & said they weren’t nearly as bad as Westerners are portraying them to be. Lizzie was their great leftist hope, & if she is advocating a massive bombing campaign [how else will they be ‘destroyed’?], with its attendant collateral damage, the moonbats must be frothing. They are now a base/constituency w’out a prospective ‘16 candidate.

So she admits it was a mistake to pull troops out of Iraq since we would have to commit troops to Iraq to destroy ISIS? She must also admit that it was a mistake to side with and arm Syrian rebels. I want these people to admit they were wrong and they are responsible for this mess.

Thank You Plain Talk. Here is another person that would like to hear confessions from all these people on the hill. Something all (on the hill) will say when pressed is classified. Yep, telling the truth is classified and punishment does ensue for a truth teller, whistle blower or one seeking the truth and then reporting the truth. Seen it and witnessed it too many times to believe otherwise.

Absolutely, during the Iraq war these same folks only supported the enemy with their demonstrations etc. They put the men/women of the US Military in great danger, and personally I believe they encouraged the enemy costing even more lives.

I believe it`s the right thing to go after these ISIS guys, but we should have finished the job in Iraq!

Don't believe a dman thing she says. She a lying leftist like all the other lying leftists. It was just a few weeks ago she was talking about negotiating a settlement with the islamic terrorist jihadists that she first considered undocumented immigrant Iraqi dreamers yet now says must be destroyed? I suspect she is simply mirroring what her pollster told her the public wanted to hear her say.

Senator Elizabeth Warren thinks we can negotiate

-excerpt:

Senator Elizabeth Warren thinks U.S. could assist the Iraqi government negotiating with ISIS

The point is there has to be a negotiated solution in Iraq, but we don’t negotiate with terrorists,” Warren said. She said, “This is partially a question of whether the U.S. government negotiates or whether we have the Iraqi government doing these negotiations, and how we help support them as they try to maintain an integrated country, and a country that better represents all of the people who live there.”

I look forward to this moonbat debating Hillary on the whole subject of the Middle East.

Warren will swerve right during the primaries to get the nomination, then a sharp jerk left to the general election.

Watch for her to pull the State Dept card on Hillary for this mess, should be a hoot !

We’re getting close to an election - a time when all liberal elites pretend they’re Republican. Once the election is over they’ll go back to destroying the country.

Now that Squaw Lizzie has established herself as a warmonger and is itching for a fight I assume she’ll be going down to the same Marine Corps recruiting station that Hillary didn’t go to and sign up. I’ll give her a ride and introduce her to the Real Americans manning the place. I’ll pick out a nice war bonnet from the rack here to make sure she makes a good first impression———Semper Fi

Let’s reword what Lizzie Borden Warren said:

“The Democrat Party is growing in strength. It has money, it has organization, it has the capacity to inflict real damage.
So when we think about a response, we have to think about how to destroy it.”

I agree, even if I had to slightly rewrite what she actually said, for subliminal clarity..

Don’t worry. If Republicans or conservatives get back in charge, she will probably yammer on about how ISIS is misunderstood, and we should just talk to them to gain mutual understanding.
