I am going to tread very lightly in the coming sentences. I don’t think it’s healthy to live in fear of ISIS, but at the same time I don’t think it’s weird for me to walk on egg shells when discussing something like this. You never know who’s listening. Although in my case, if TheEricHammer.com has breached the ISIS social circle, then I’ve done a stellar job in growing this site. There’s nothing about ISIS that I enjoy or respect even a little bit, but I’d never turn down a reader. If that makes me a bad person so be it.
Okay. Obviously this is great news for the United States and the rest of the world. This is a win for us. The more ISIS members we kill, the better. I will never waver on that stance. But this is a victory for ISIS as well I think. When your head strategy guy kicks the bucket, it becomes clear that they should not have been in charge of strategizing anyway. How can they put their trust in someone to run operations when he can’t even keep himself alive? Maybe he knows someone, but I’m not afraid to say someone in charge did a poor job appointing that guy. I don’t want to tell ISIS how to do their job because I am against everything they stand for, but from a business perspective I can’t help but point out a blatant miscue.
If your strategy guru gets taken out, he’s not the right guy for the job. ISIS now has the chance to hire a strategy guy who knows that he’s doing. That’s bad. So does this now get marked down in the win column for the bad guys? They cut the deadweight (got em) and we’re left opposing a more formidable opponent? Motherfucker. I don’t mean to be cynical, but this is how my brain is wired. I’m always looking ahead to the next move. Let’s continue to take these guys down so they have nobody left to strategize.
Just for the record, I am not at all supportive of ISIS and I am Team USA all the way. (FBI/CIA if you promise not to come to my home for this I’ll surrender myself to downloading pirated music.)
PS – This guy looks like Colin Kaepernick.
