The Jordanian King, Who Vowed A “Relentless” War Against ISIS, Just Proved Why He Has More Cojones Than President Obama.
King Abdullah, the unstoppable, Clint Eastwood quoting, ISIS killing force? According to Breitbart News, he just might be. The Jordanian King has been making headlines ever since he took a tough stance on the Islamic state, also known as ISIS. The US Herald reported about the recent hostage negotiations between ISIS and Jordan, that ended with a Jordanian pilot being torched alive in a cage.
After the video surfaced, King Abdullah vowed to execute the ISIS hostage, plus another terrorist hostage. In a world where vows mean nothing, Abdullah kept his word, and executed the two ISIS terrorists the very next day. Following this, he also vowed to wage a “relentless” war against the Islamic state. It did not really need to get more interesting than that, but according to the Washington Examiner, it did.
Abdullah met with U.S. Representatives after the news broke about the video evidence of his murdered citizen. The conversation that ensued at that meeting, made Jordanian King sound like an Arab action figure, unlike King Obama who seems more like a barbie doll. Abdullah was, reportedly, so angry about the attack that words called in sick that day. However, he did manage to dig down deep and find some colorful words from a popular American western. Despite having a non-speaking part on Star Trek, he found the words of a Clint Eastwood character from the 1992 film Unforgiven very easy to let out.
California Rep. Duncan Hunter Jr. recounted the meeting, and the Clint Eastwood moment.
“He said there is going to be retribution like ISIS hasn’t seen. He mentioned Unforgiven and he mentioned Clint Eastwood, and he actually quoted a part of the movie.”
The exact quote the Jordanian King used is unknown, however, the Examiner speculates that it must have this one: “Any man I see out there, I’m gonna kill him. Any son of a b**** takes a shot at me, I’m not only going to kill him, I’m going to kill his wife and all his friends and burn his d**** house down.” The Examiner was the original source of the report.
Whatever your opinion of King Abdullah, that is tough stance. Quite frankly, it is the stance any leader should have when terrorists come knocking in their backyard.
Rep. Hunter also mentioned that the Jordanian King made one final, film-like statement.
‘The only problem we’re going to have is running out of fuel and bullets.'”
Though of questionable character, King Abdullah appears more like a leader in the last week or so, than King Obama has his entire time as President of the United States.
