I get what your saying. I don't know how to translate english into english for some people.
The problem is simply that the administration is completely missing the point of who we are fighting and why they are fighting us. They are making shit up that has nothing to do with their motivations and trying to sell it, fortunately people aren't buying it.
The fact is these people are evil. These people are motivated by their religion, be it a perversion of their religion or not, their motivation is their religion.
Technically, it's a Muslims problem and the Muslims need to clean their own house; except they are not. Some are, some are decrying the brutality, some are fighting back, but in proportion to the numbers in their religion, there are far to few voices. Far to few willing to make a difference.
The problem is, they are killing with impunity, for sport, for fun. They kill Muslim and Jew, Christian and Atheist. But they are motivated by their religion and they have support from people who share their whacked out beliefs which is a stunningly much higher number then one would expect.
1% of 1.5 billion is 1.5 million. If there were 1.5 million Westboro Baptist Church members, people would shit their pants and subsequently crucify the entirety of Christianity as crazy whack jobs.
As it is, you have a 99% of nonviolent Muslims doing way to little to clean their house. They are killing us, we have to deal with it.
Instead of dealing with it, Obama is just trying to relabel everything and redefine the problem in to some mythological fantasy he's built up.
To say stupid shit like poverty is the root cause of fanaticism is not only outrageously stupid, but is a sign he is completely unwilling to deal with the real issue. If poverty were the root cause, places like India and Laos should be the most radical places on Earth. Ironically the most violent places are also rich and Islamic.
I don't know how to take blinders off of people. I thought Bill Maher's calling out on the problem would have an effect on the liberal mindset. Apparently he doesn't really have that much influence.
