    Again, philosophy with no practical application.

    Don’t have a specific strategy for a specific problem so rather than cobbling one together some forethought will be involved.
    Personally I like that approach better than going to war with the military you have rather than the one you’d like to have.

    How did Nero play a “fiddle” when the instrument was not invented until the 1500s?

    Nero played a stringed instrument known as the Cithara in the lyre family.

    Let’s be honest folks; No matter WHAT Obama does, you are gonna diss him. He doesn’t go in – he’s a coward or blah blah blah; He does go in – he’s getting “us” back into another war blah blah blah.
    Aren’t you getting just a little tired of your hypocrisies? Everybody else is!

    ISIS doesn’t have a strategy either…

    BTW, Nero never started the fire.

    Bombing isn’t a strategy? What is it, a tactic? Are we dealing with semantics here? May I believe you peeps so ready to put American troops back in Harm’s Way have been there a few times yourselves?

    Let’s not be talk radio warmongers, eh? It’s not ANY strategy that’s wanted, it’s the right one, and the right strategies in the Middle East — have you noticed? — don’t grow on loquat trees.

    Geee… We do not have a strategy where the events and even the players themselves change almost overnight all the time in the Middle East. Personally, I like a president who is not getting literally hundreds of thousands of our young and best involved, and eventually getting thousands of them killed, and tens of thousands wounded!


    Another thing that amazes me, is all of the ranting by the same ultra conservative types that seem to want us to get into another multiple $trillion dollar war in this very volatile area. What happened to all of your anti tax principles when that happens?

    @ODon

    It’s not called “forethought” if you go buy the fire extinguisher WHILE the fire’s burning.

    @Newenglandah

    Because “Nero lyred while Rome burned” sounds silly.

    Better to think carefully about a strategy involving American loves than to go charging in wearing a flight suit and declaring Mission Accomplituded. (heh, heh, heh)."

    Now, watch this drive…

    “It must really ‘burn’ libs when one of their own does a toon like this.”

    No, I roll my eyes and wonder what the Republican strategy is for dealing with the issue. If they had one they’d be talking about it instead of just bitching about Obama.

    No matter how badly the Bush administration screwed things up, and lit this fire, and many others, in the process, Republicans will not blame “he who cannot be blamed”. (Actually ’they", it was a real team of morons, and political hacks.)

    @MrSmee

    Absolutely correct, MrSmee.
    Obama’s in a lose-lose situation no matter what he does.
     
    I’m reminded of the joke about him walking on water to save a drowning child, reported breathlessly by Fox News as “Obama Can’t Swim!”
