GOP House Armed Services Committee member Duncan Hunter says ISIS can only hurt us if they come over our border. We don't need to ramp up military in Middle East, just need to secure our southern border and stop issuing visas to people from the Middle East

8/28/14, "Rep. Hunter: Islamic State just 'guys in pajamas,' not an 'existential threat'," John T. Bennett,

"A GOP House member who served in Iraq says the Islamic State is not an “existential threat” to the United States, striking a different tone than other Republicans.

As the violent Sunni extremist group continues to slaughter minority populations in northern Iraq and hold a large amount of territory, some American Republican lawmakers want the White House to unleash more U.S. military power on it....

But GOP House Armed Services Committee member Duncan Hunter of California, who served in Iraq and Afghanistan as a Marine, had a different take Tuesday evening on Fox News Channel’s “The Kelly File” program.

But a bunch of guys wearing pajamas pushing up logs, they are not an existential threat to U.S. like North Korea is, like Iran is, like Pakistan is,” he said, appearing to refer video of State fighters training in baggy black tops that reach their shins. “They are not like that.”

Hunter said “the only” threat the Islamic States poses directly to the U.S. is if they can get their operatives inside the United States to carry out attacks.

Rather than a ramped-up military operation against the group, Hunter is pushing mostly defensive measures — while also suggesting Washington should help certain minority populations in the Islamic State’s brutal path.

That’s why it’s so important that you secure the southern border... and start denying visas in totality to people from the Middle East, from this area unless they’re persecuted Christians, Hunter said. “And then we have to allow them in.”" via Pamela Geller

Comment: We're not going to change the culture of barbarism nor kill its countless adherents. If the US had stopped giving visas to people from Muslim majority countries in 1993 after the first WTC bombing, 9/11/2001 would never have happened. It's more than the Middle East, if we'd also stopped giving visas to Chechen Muslims, the Boston bombing wouldn't have happened. US universities make a fortune on students from the Middle East. The whole Ruling Class structure would crumble without its ability to create global chaos and mob rule. Imagine how wonderful life could've been in the US if the Bush family hadn't sold the country out.

The publication carrying the above article is called Military Times. Perhaps they weren't happy to hear a US elected representative say we don't need a ramped up military operation in the Middle East. Perhaps they agreed with him.
