In what is likely a desperate and purely political attempt to make Hillary Clinton look like she wasn't the nation's worst-ever Secretary of State, John "You Rang?" Kerry has just come out with the least encouraging pronouncement imaginable about the throat-cutting, suicide-bombing, allegedly non-Islamic murderers of ISIS, ISIL, Daesh, or whatever the hell other name the administration thinks is likely to be unrecognized by Democratic voters.
Specifically, and in keeping with Barack Obama's strategy of only using "D" words when describing action against ISIS, Kerry further downgraded our nation's goal from destroying, degrading, or disrupting the maniacal killers to merely "denting" them.
Not only is that the pantywaist equivalent of making an empty threat to give Hitler a noogie, but Kerry is saying that he only hopes we'll be able to make this dent (the first $500 of which goes to ISIS's deductible, after which the rest is paid by their CAIR insurance) by the end of the Obama administration.
Put another way (and surely the way ISIS and our former Middle Eastern allies are hearing it), this means that the president has no intention of seriously damaging ISIS - and perhaps his "legacy" - prior to his exit. Which means that the radical jihadists can pretty much look forward to another unfettered year of metastatic spread without significant U.S. intervention.
Still, we shouldn't underestimate the power of the dents. After all, it was they who voted Obama into office - twice.
