State Department spokeswoman floats jobs as answer to ISIS

February 17, 2015

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.”

    This response is absolutely typical of the fascist left. Lets see if I follow this babble: “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,”…then why is the Obama regime killing them?
    Why did killing Japanese and German soldiers end WW 2 but killing terrorist won’t end terrorism..? Besides the Obama regime is already giving American jobs to illegal Mexicans.

    I heard this naive gullible fool on MSNBC and FOX. She does not belong in the state dept, anymore than the subversive arrogant dolt belongs in the WH.
    ISIS needs jobs, Really? what exactly are they qualified to do besides work in in a slaughter house or as goat milking bestiality fornicators?
    Where do they find these dim witted jackass spokes people, under Obama’s idiot tree munching on tainted acorns?

      If its jobs, just lower the taxes and loosen 1400 regulations on the small businesmen…Her name should be Marie BARF because she makes me want to VOMIT…Boots on the ground that put bullets in their head is the best solution. Also the A10 or C10 fighter / bombers. Obamanation should go golfing the next 2 years and give the WAR to the Military Leaders…
      Peace with Prayers but carry a BIG STICK,
