The Khmer Rouge led by Pol Pot were responsible for the killing 1-3 million people. A ruthless socialist with a dictatorial passion for human blood was he. Pol Pot was deemed the Hitler of Cambodia, a genocidal tyrant whose thirst for death was only overwhelmed by his desire to rule with the iron fist of dictator’s past.
Kim Ill Sung, the North Korean executioner killed 1.5 million political adversaries. Joseph Stalin was another cult figure who worshiped the socialist creed, but this led to the mother of all famines; in its wake approximately 1.7 million perished – a good many of them were Ukrainians. Although official figures are fluid we can estimate that the total number of deaths during the Stalin reign was close to 10 million.
Barreling ahead like the killing machines referenced above, ISIS takes no prisoners. You either submit to their demands or feel the point of their sword pierce your heart; instantaneous death. Raping, killing are these savages modus operandi leaving a trail of blood as they make their way to the next town; scorching a path through Syria and Iraq accumulating munitions and recruits. Their brutality is beyond the pale; point blank to the head or beheadings are their prime methods. Murders beyond comparison they justify their terror through a demonic view of Islam.
Failure to stop them will eventually lead to mass murder of epic proportions not unrivaled in the past two decades. The world watches with horror as videos track their victims. Butchers, thugs, murderers all in one, they have attracted minions who believe in their cause. Fired up on the gains they have made so far gives them incentive to conquer more. Without anyone to stop them they will continue on to their objective of establishing a caliphate in all of the Middle East.
The question at large is: who will intervene? Obama does not have the will to intercede bowing to the demands of the liberal of wings. Intervention is a non starter to them, but soon ISIS will be on our shores, pillaging, raping and murdering Americans. If not now when? Time has come for the Generals to garner support for intervention.
