Whacking Moles

522979 397881453618328 386793501 n Funny whack a mole

Critics are complaining that Obama's stated goal -
Going after ISIL - is like playing "Whack a Mole."
First we hit al Qaeda hard - invade Afghanistan;
Hit again when they reorganize in Pakistan.

Hammer them in Africa; they pop up in Iraq.
When they crawl out of their holes we take another whack.
'though the critics have a point, it isn't quite the same...
These moles want to hurt us and the fight is not a game.

True, these guys are vermin who we'll have to hunt and kill
And this infestation will keep spreading there until
Countries in the region put their differences aside;
Muslim leaders find a way to heal their great divide.

If they cannot pull together things will fall apart...
Still, our coalition to fight ISIL is a start.
Enemies of enemies could, possibly, be friends;
That's the only way extremist terrorism ends.
