Both Russia and China have come out strongly against Terrorism and they join with France as well as all of Europe in the fight. Obama has been late to the party, although he still refuses to say or use the words “Radical Islamic Terrorism.”
Senator Ted Cruz when he was a Presidential candidate was asked how the U.S. should respond to the terrorist attacks in Paris. “Well, the first thing we should do is identify the evil we are fighting,” Cruz said. “The fact that President Obama will not identify, he literally will not utter the words ‘radical Islamic terrorism’ and as matter of policy, nobody in the administration will say the words ‘radical Islamic terrorism.’”
A Lexis search confirmed Obama has not, will not and does not use the phrase: “radical Islamic Terrorism”. Why not?
He must have a reason or maybe several reasons but he’s not saying what those reasons are.
So it is pretty much a done deal that the Three Great Powers are willingly cooperating in the “War Against Terror”. So is France, especially in light of the Terrorist Massacre in Nice. Even Obama has promised to help France although the reasons for the terrorist attack are pretty much known as the work of Radical Islamic Terrorists.
