White House: Jobs Program Will Defeat ISIS

What the West really needs to take on the Islamic State is ... a jobs program.

That’s what a top State Department spokeswoman suggested when asked in a TV interview Monday night about what the U.S.-led coalition is doing to stop the slaughter of civilians by Islamic State militants across the region.

“We’re killing a lot of them, and we’re going to keep killing more of them. ... But we cannot win this war by killing them,” department spokeswoman Marie Harf said on MSNBC’s “Hardball.” “We need ... to go after the root causes that leads people to join these groups, whether it’s lack of opportunity for jobs, whether --”

At that point, Harf was interrupted by host Chris Matthews, who pointed out, “There’s always going to be poor people. There’s always going to be poor Muslims.”

Harf continued to argue that the U.S. should work with other countries to “help improve their governance” and “help them build their economies so they can have job opportunities for these people.”

She acknowledged there’s “no easy solution” and said the U.S. would still take out ISIS leaders. But Harf said: “If we can help countries work at the root causes of this—what makes these 17-year-old kids pick up an AK-47 instead of trying to start a business?”

“The White House had to seem like it was doing something,” said Jonah Goldberg, a National Review editor and conservative columnist, while claiming the summit won’t achieve much.

Senior administration officials, though, defended the conference, and their description of it, on a call with reporters.

Asked whether Islamic extremists are in fact the focus of the summit, one official said extremism has spanned “many decades” and taken on “many forms,” but they recognize that those launching recent attacks “are calling themselves Muslims.”

“You can call them what you want. We’re calling them terrorists,” the official said.

Terrorists? Well, that’s a tiny step forward. Of course, those launching attacks for the past 1300 years worth of “many decades” or so have been also calling themselves Muslims, regardless of which of “many forms” they chose. Somehow they’ve always had the idea that this is how they’re supposed to behave. Good thing we now have Obama around to tell them otherwise. That’ll work.

And let’s not even look at the obvious, well researched fact, that many who answer the call of jihad are from the well educated, more financially comfortable layers of society. The kind who can find decent jobs if they want them. So let’s treat this bunch - they’re kinda brown, right? - so let’s treat them the same way we treat our own black male youth, as if they were just suburban white boys with a heavy tan, looking for a leg up with employment, a foot in the door so they could start climbing that old ladder of success. Because that’s worked so well so far, hasn’t it? (NOT). Hey, maybe Obama can solve the jihad thing by passing out EBTs and Obamaphones! Or some cold Colt 45 and some fine kind blunts? Works every time, yo!

I’d call him naive, but since pResident Narcissus D. Selfie spends so much time gazing in the mirror*, I’ll just write it as “evian” so he can read the reflection. And keep my fingers crossed he doesn’t think it’s a bottle of fwench water.

( * Until photo events of this week, I didn’t even know there was such a thing as a “selfie stick”. Did you? How thrilling to see that Fearless Reader has at least one and is an adept. )

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
