I watched with sadness as we started our “air strike campaign” against ISIS terrorists in Syria last evening; sad because it should have been done a year ago and also sad because this action is going nowhere without a decisive plan by this President to get these terrorists on the ground. Referred to as “cockroaches” this morning by a military commentator, ISIS and other terrorists will just move from place to place after bombing strikes and who is going to go after them?
This morning, late again as usual and anxious to “get out of Dodge” Barack Obama came to the White House microphone for less than 5 minutes and with all the resolve and patriotism of a gnat. So ashamed was I of his dispassion and his obvious disgust that he was dragged into doing something by the Military. There was not an ounce of genuine caring for the American people in his man’s voice. He is now on his way to the UN where he feels much more at ease trying to be the leader of everyone else’s country.
The only thing I got out of his speech was the veiled reference to “we work better when we work together” which was a reference, I believe, to the at least 5 Generals in our Military who have stated that this air campaign is doomed to fail unless we back our airmen up with Intelligence on the ground with American Special Operations troops.
The mid-term elections will be a resounding disapproval vote against Barack Obama’s foreign and domestic policies, and in 2016 Americans will make sure another Alinsky-inspired Democrat does not again get placed in the highest Office in our land. I just hope that what we all fear does not come true that ISIS wins over this current meager fight of ours against terrorism.
