"May God bless our soldiers. May God bless the United States of America. " With these words (invite Pope Francisco to comment on them), ends the solemn "Declaration on the ISIS / ISIL" with which President Barack Obama, dressed in a frock "commander in chief", he went on 4th Wednesday, 10/09/2014, not only to their fellow citizens, but to the whole world.

"America", Obama said, are entitled to the blessings, "because they assume the most difficult tasks, starting with the" responsibility to exercise leadership. " In an "uncertain world" as our present world, "leadership by the United States is the only constant". In fact, only "the United States" have "the capacity and will to mobilize the world against the terrorists." "America" ​​who was "brought together the world against Russian aggression." "America" ​​is who "can contain and eliminate the epidemic of Ebola."

In a tone that is reminiscent of medieval preacher time of the plague - and putting "Russian aggression" in the same plane as the epidemic of Ebola - US President proclaims the new crusade against the "Islamic State in Iraq and Levant [Syria] ( ISIS / ISIL), warning that "it will take time to eradicate a cancer like this". After all the USA made ​​so far to combat terrorism, Obama insists, "we continue to face a terrorist threat" because "the world can not erase all traces of Evil."

With that caveat, it reminds of the Crusades Republican Ronald Reagan against the "Evil Empire" (USSR) and also Republican George W. Bush against "the enemy hidden in some dark corner of the earth" (al-Qaeda), Democrat Obama announced "the US strategy to win the ISIS / ISIL" strategy consists of four points:

- A systematic campaign of airstrikes against ISIS / ISIL "in Syria and Iraq.
- Growing support for forces fighting the ISIS / ISIL field ": with the difference, compared to previous interventions in Iraq and Afghanistan, this time the United States will not send ground forces, only advisers and trainers (475 more coming soon Iraq). There will also be funding and weapons to the "local", thanks to Congress that approved an ad hoc law: for Iraqi and Kurdish forces, and Syria, to groups fighting against "the Assad regime that terrorizes its own people" and against "extremists such as ISIS / ISIL."
- Continue leveraging our considerable capabilities in counter-terrorism to prevent attacks ISIS / ISIL ", which is able to work closely with partners - Israel, for example, who has offered to share the information collected for its own services intelligence.
- "Providing humanitarian assistance to innocent civilians driven from their homes" by ISIS / ISIL.

The United States has mounted "broad coalition of partners" that bring "billions of dollars in humanitarian aid, weapons and support to Iraqi security forces and the Syrian opposition." In the coming days the Secretary of State, John Kerry will travel to the Middle East and Europe to "recruit members for this fight." The Obama administration announced that the strategy is not that the president had to authorize after having underestimated the threat of Islamic Emirate - second version of the newspaper-press company is not never tire of repeating - but that strategy is already mapped out for years.

As has been amply demonstrated, the first outbreaks of the future Islamic Emirate formed when, to overthrow Gaddafi in Libya - in 2011 - NATO - under orders of the United States - began to finance and arm jihadi groups considered terrorists until just before. Having helped to overthrow Gaddafi, those jihadists moved to Syria to topple Assad. And it is in Syria in 2013, where the Islamic Emirate, which immediately began to be helped through Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Kuwait, Turkey and Jordan, which also provide weapons and money, as part of a broad program coordinated by the CIA is born (Central Intelligence Agency of the USA).

In May 2013, a month after she founded the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant, Ibrahim al-Badri - today Caliph, who adopted the nom de guerre of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi - meets on Syria with Senator John McCain , whom Obama delivered the execution of several covert operations for the United States government. After that meeting, the Islamic State, then still called just ISIL, began its offensive in Iraq, at the precise moment when the government of Prime Minister al-Maliki distanced himself from Washington, to get closer to China and Russia.

The real purpose of the Holy Crusade of Saint Obama is destroying Syria and reoccupy Iraq. On the other hand, to involve its European allies in a new war front in the Middle East, and also on the eastern front against Russia, the United States reinforce their own influence on the European Union, whose only interests drive to Washington, the continent remains under the leadership of the USA.
