WASHINGTON, USA: President Barack Obama laid out his military strategy for dealing with the Islamic State’s growing threat on Wednesday, revealing plans to simply ignore the jihadist group entirely.
“Back in school, we had one tactic when it came to dealing with bullies and that was to just not pay them any attention at all. Eventually they got bored and moved on,” he said in a televised address to the American people.
“Granted, the bullies in my school were more intent on shoving my face down the toilet and tying my shoelaces together, and not brutally establishing a Caliphate operating under strict sharia law across the Sunni areas of Iraq and Syria which they would then expand over the world. But I think the same principle applies.”
