Obama Is Correct Not Calling It A War Against Radical Islam

I hate political correctness, but at least it curbs some of the garbage that spews from some people's voice.  If we did not have political correctness words as nigger, faggot, spick, kraut, cracker, honkie, would still be used freely as if they are appropriate ways to speak.   

However often times political correctness goes way over the top.   Go on the internet and one can find numerous examples of political correctness gone mad!   My favorite is the following story:

In 2007, Santa Clauses in Sydney, Australia, were banned from saying 'Ho Ho Ho'. Their employer, the recruitment firm Westaff (that supplies hundreds of Santas across Australia), allegedly told all trainees that 'ho ho ho' could frighten children, and be derogatory to women. Why ?  Because 'Ho Ho Ho' is too close to the American (not Australian, mind you) slang for prostitute.    Source:  11 Examples Of Political Correctness Gone Mad

Now in the latest case of what appears to be political correctness, President Obama has stated the world is not against radical Islam but is against specific terrorists as ISIS and Al-Qaeda which just happen to use the religion of Islam to justify their terrorist activities.   

Initially the news media had a field day with the President's comments of so-called political correctness.   But in this case the President has it correct!   

If the United States were to engage in a war on radical Islam---well it is most definitely sounding like a war on a particular religious belief and that will not win the hearts of any potential allies in what will likely be an ongoing war against terrorist groups.  

Let's face it.  Not all radical Muslims believe in murder and torture of non-believers. 

The United States likes to pick and choose which groups practicing the Islamic faith  to support.   And in reality, many of the United States  so-called Islamic friends as is the case of Saudi Arabia are probably no better than ISIS when it comes to the treatment of their citizens.   

In reality, the Saudi family and other middle east royal families dictators, and tribes  are indeed very responsible for groups as ISIS forming and learning how to terrorize people. 

The Saudi royal family is just a corrupted family of thugs dominating their own citizens. However, the Saudi family controls oil reserves which the West needs.  If oil and Israel did not exist, there would probably be very little Western interest in that crazy part of the world.

But, and I say somewhat cautiously, the difference is Saudi family is not terrorizing the world or engaged in such horrendous savagery on such a large scale.

The President is correct.  We are engaged in a war against specific groups who are indeed very sick mother fuckers using a religion to justify their depravity and political agenda. 

 Saying the United States is fighting radical Islam it too general.  It is indeed a war against specific terrorist groups and it is not a war against a religious way of thinking.
