Iraq – Will Democracy Fall as President Obama Does Too Little?
Advances by ISIS in Iraq go on unthwarted with few victories by the Iraqies. ISIS is within a few miles of Baghdad. The latest reports are alarming. Even al-Qaeda wants nothing to do with these barbarians. President Obama’s solution? Military advisors and troops to guard U.S. interests. Three hundred in harm’s way to face down ISIS. And now millions in spending to help Syrian rebels who have been “vetted” for appropriate loyalties. Another example of leadership at its worst and more embarassment for America. It’s time for decisive action. Air strikes and drones. The President justifed using drones on Americans overseas accused of terrorisim. Why not ISIS? And Secretary Clinton? She says, “I could not have predicted, however, the extent to which ISIS could be effective in seizing cities in Iraq and trying to erase boundaries to create an Islamic state. That’s why it’s a wicked problem.” Wicked? Really, Mrs. Clinton? Washington needs to wake up.
