    We are bombing Isis and dropping food to their enemy.
    So there is a strategy and we are doing something.

    Doesn’t matter what Obama does, war or not, Repubs will proudly declaim “it’s wrong”. Taking time to figure out a strategy? WRONG! Creating a coalition that actually reduces the costs? WRONG!

    We’re getting mighty close to giving them their wish, a Democrat going in to war so they can call the Democratic Party the warre party for the next 100 years. Ignoring all their wars, of course, they don’t count.

    So? Could as easily have been me there, and so what? You do these jobs you take that risk. And IS is killing anyone that isn’t at least Sunni, and that’s only the first cut. There’s over a million Indians and Filipinos in Kuwait that IS would love to kill, and they would, every one of them. Just what makes one reporters head so special, anyhow, among a few tens of thousands now?

    So, Holbert; what do you think Obama SHOULD do?

    “what difference does it make now” is still your answer?

    You’re missing the point. President Obama & the DNC spent about $1 Billion dollars, twice, to gain the presidency. It’s the President’s JOB to defend our country. Why isn’t he doing it? It isn’t Mr. Holbert’s (or mine), it’s the PRESIDENT’s.

    Here is a nice little article from Ron Paul, putting the blame where it belongs:

    Obama Has No Middle East Strategy? Good!

    http://www.unz.com/rpaul/obama-has-no-middle-east-strategy-good/

    If the neocons have their way, the Federal Reserve will “print” more money to finance another massive US intervention in the Middle East. In reality this means further devaluation of the US dollar, which is a tax on all Americans that will hit the poorest hardest.

    A new US military incursion will not end ISIS; it will provide them with the recruiting tool they most crave, while draining the US treasury. Just what Osama bin Laden wanted!

    Fact= the existence and growth of ISIS is the legacy of Obama’s 2010-2014 “do Nothing strategy”….and boots on the ground is the only way (like the Surge in Iraq) to squash groups like ISIS.

    @Rad-ish

    Bombing Isis and dropping food relief to their victims are both commendable actions. But without a comprehensive strategy these are unlikely to have any lasting effect. Indeed, without concerted action even the immediate effectiveness of these actions will be limited:

    Or he doesn´t have one YET – that doesn´t involve in mindless bombing somewhere in the middle east.

    Obama’s answer is, ‘I don’t have a strategy.‘


    As it happens, there WAS a question, but we don’t need to know what it was, Obama’s answer is more than enough.

    Yep. Misquote the president, and pretend he’s evil. We saw this before with “you didn’t build that.” George Will repeated that silly lie in his column over the weekend. There’s no point in trying to reason with today’s conservatives. They’re not interested in solutions, only insults, attacks, and delegitimizing the president we elected twice. Do the job without them, or the job won’t get done.
