Some say Obama did it.
They claim that the billions of dollars-worth of weapons he sent to Syrian rebels were just what ISIS needed to begin its campaign of terror. Furthermore, his reluctance to wage an aggressive war on the terrorist group guaranteed its success.
Others say “No, Bush did it.” We had no business being in Iraq in the first place. If we hadn’t declared war over Saddam Hussein’s non-existent weapons of mass destruction ISIS would never have been born.
Political spin being what it is, we will probably never know the real answer — but we can be assured of at least five facts related to this crisis:
FACT #1: ISIS is pure, unadulterated evil. No evidence is required to support this claim. The entire world has seen the horrors this group commits.
FACT #2: ISIS is hungry for territory. How much territory? Well, “ISIS” — The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria is also known as “ISIL” — The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant.
What, exactly, is “the Levant?” It’s an area of land in the Middle East that contains Cyprus, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Palestine, Syria and Turkey.
When President Obama uses the term “ISIL,” he is acknowledging the terrorists as the de-facto rulers of all seven of these countries plus Iraq.
FACT #3: ISIS will not stop until it has established the caliphate that Muslims have dreamed of for nearly 100 years. A caliphate is a form of Islamic government led by a caliph — a person considered to be the political and religious successor to the prophet Mohammed and by extension the leader of all Muslims worldwide.
The world has seen four major caliphates since the time of Mohammed (570-632 AD). The last one, the Ottoman Caliphate, ended in 1924. Since then Muslim children have been taught that each day that goes by without a caliphate is a sin in the eyes of God.
ISIS or ISIL claims to be the new caliphate and that its leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, is the caliph.
FACT #4: There are two reasons why the rise of ISIS is the worst possible news for Europe. The first reason is that ISIS has declared war on Europe — and that it’s making good on that declaration with orchestrated attacks on European civilians.
The human costs have already been horrendous as we saw in the Paris attacks. But the financial cost may well prove terminal for the heavily indebted, European Union. The added costs of homeland security and supporting a war in Iraq and Syria may well prove fatal to the EU.
The second reason is that ISIS’ reign of terror is creating a massive humanitarian crisis in Europe.
More than one million refugees have already invaded Europe. Most of them are young men — and as such have families that are eager to follow them. As a result, the total number of refugees may well reach as high as several million.
This is more than a human tragedy. It is an economic catastrophe for the heavily socialized European nations that are now obligated to provide free food, housing, medical care and more to millions of non-citizens.
FACT #5: ISIS virtually guarantees the collapse of the European Union, the euro currency and European stocks — and an explosive new bull market in crisis investments like gold and silver.
Imagine for a moment that you’re a rich European banker or businessperson watching ISIS terrorize your country and contemplating your next move.
Should you stand pat? Keep your wealth tied up in the euro currency and European stocks? Or should you get it out of danger — convert it into U.S. dollars and gold?
Now imagine you’re a wealthy oil sheikh or a rich Israeli businessman watching the news. This is no distant crisis for you. ISIS is approaching. What’s YOUR next move?
Are you going to bury your head in the sand … ignore ISIS and hope it will just go away?
Or are you going to convert your dirhams, dinars, sheqels, pounds and riyals into U.S. dollars and gold?
Can you see why I’m urging my readers to buy investments that soar when the euro currency and European stocks sink?
Can you see why we’re buying U.S. investments that these beleaguered Europeans and Middle Easterners want to own most?
Can you see why we’re preparing for an historic new bull market in gold, silver and other crisis investments?
Can you see why it is so important that YOU be buying these things as well?
