Yesterday at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), Texas Governor Rick Perry spoke on the threat posed by ISIS:
“At no time has the future been more uncertain and world more dangerous than today. This administration’s incompetence in Iraq and Syria has allowed the emergence of ISIS. Let’s be very, very clear about what ISIS is. They are a religious movement that seeks to take the world back to the 7th century.”
“To deny the fundamentally religious threat is naïve, it is dangerous, and it is misguided. ISIS represents the worst threat to freedom since communism.”
Whether or not Governor Perry decides to run for President in 2016, he believes, as do the rest of the conservative candidates, that ISIS is an existential threat to the western world, and our government must put its full force into eradicating it.
