Words Can Destroy Evil

It was the early morning of 6 June 1944 and General Dwight D. Eisenhower was marking the locations where more than 160,000 Allied troops would spread themselves along a 50-mile stretch of heavily-fortified French coastline. Estimated casualty statistics predicted a loss of at least ten thousand Allied lives before the invasion would be concluded.
If only there were a way to save all those lives and defeat Hitler at the same time.
Luckily, President Roosevelt delivered a speech that morning explaining why the American way of life is so much superior to the Nazi ideology. A few hours later, after hearing the ideas enunciated in that speech, Hitler meekly surrendered to the Allied Nations which action saved millions of lives. Nazism was defeated by the force of ideas, not weapons.
What? Wait a minute, in what Universe did this happen? Well, if you have to know, it's Obama's Universe:
New York Times, At U.N., Obama States His Case for Fighting ISIS With IdeasUNITED NATIONS — President Obama called upon a conclave of world leaders on Tuesday to fight violent extremism with not only weapons, but also ideas, jobs and good governance, a strategy he has long advocated. There are few signs that it is succeeding.
Military pressure, Mr. Obama said at a United Nations summit meeting, will be insufficient to vanquish groups like the Islamic State, also known as ISIS and ISIL.
“This means defeating their ideology,” Mr. Obama said. “Ideology is not defeated with guns. They are defeated with better ideas.”
If this were a scene from a Hollywood movie, the psychotic and mentally disturbed President who made this statement would be quickly impeached and removed from office to the wild applause of the audience, happy at seeing such a maniac separated from the levers of power.
What a dangerous maroon!
