Ted Cruz: We Must Increase Civilian Casualties to Fight ISIS

His official killing view (my emphasis)
“America must stand with our allies against the scourge of radical Islamic terrorism. This is an evil that does not discriminate between French, German or American, Christian, Muslim or Jew, soldier, football player, or concert goer. Their only goal is to murder those who do not submit to their vicious, totalitarian ideology. Our deepest condolences go out to our French allies, and I know the government of the United States stands by to offer any assistance necessary.

“We must now face the facts. Between the downing of the Russian jet over Egypt and this massive coordinated attack on Paris, we are seeing an unmistakable escalation of ISIS’ ambitions and the scale of their terrorist attacks outside Syria and Iraq. Even as chaos rages in Paris, we need to take immediate, commonsense steps to preserve our own safety. We need to consult closely with our NATO allies who may be targeted for additional attacks. We need to immediately declare a halt to any plans to bring refugees that may have been infiltrated by ISIS to the United States. We need to redouble our efforts to prevent ISIS agents from penetrating our nation by other means.

“Such steps, however, are defensive reactions to an enemy that will continue to try to attack us until they succeed once again. We must immediately recognize that our enemy is not ‘violent extremism.’ It is the radical Islamism that has declared jihad against the west. It will not be appeased by outreach or declarations of tolerance. It will not be deterred by targeted airstrikes with zero tolerance for civilian casualties, when the terrorists have such utter disregard for innocent life. We must make it crystal clear that affiliation with ISIS and related terrorist groups brings with it the undying enmity of America—that it is, in effect, signing your own death warrant.”


  1. Americans sucks at math. The US war machine kills 150 civilians without breaking a sweat on a monthly basis. It just doesn't happen in places Americans feel familiar with because they've seen them in movies, so no one freaks out. This is only going to get worse.

  2. "We must make it crystal clear that affiliation with ISIS and related terrorist groups brings with it the undying enmity of America"

    Then he must be referring to the US gov so I guess Cruz is going to storm the Pentagon, Langley and the WH... ISIS was created and has been and is supported by the US gov to overthrow Assad. Benghazi was about arming ISIS. Duh.

    The only people ISIS is afraid of are the Russians because they actually are kicking their asses not just pretending to on CNN. Anyone with any sense should understand ISIS is part of the PNAC and Greater Israel enterprises. Since Obama wasn't able to kickstart a US invasion of Syria with the gas attack false-flag, ISIS will just have to do... except those pesky Russians are getting in the way.

  3. or you could give up the super power title and avoid all this nonsense.

  4. The terrorist have utter disregard for innocent people, which is why we have to fight them, but to win, we have to have utter disregard to innocent people.
    Brilliant Cruz.
    Go grab a gun Cruz, and back your words with YOUR life.
    But that never ever will cross your mind, will it.
