It was over ten months ago when Obama told America that we didn't have a strategy in place for dealing with ISIS but once we did he would let the nation know. And now he is basically saying the same thing while thousands of Christians, Yasidis and decent Muslims in Iraq and Syria have been raped, tortured and killed by horrible methods including crucifixion. Included are men, women and children with no mercy shown. And you really want us to believe that we have no strategy that would work?
Can you imagine if this was America in 1943 and President Roosevelt presented one of his "fireside chats" telling Americans that he didn't know what happened to the fleet at Pearl Harbor? That, in this humble writer's opinion, would have been the equivalent to today's disgraceful statement.
Having been an active military officer, I guarantee you that the Pentagon has presented proposal after proposal to the President, only to be told that he didn't want to cause any civilian casualties. And, yes, to destroy ISIS will cause some civilian casualties. But think about it, thousands upon thousands of civilians have been killed while we've stood silently by, many times the number that would die if we took the fight to our enemy.
We've got the technology, the trained manpower and the capacity to do the job, but instead we have allowed this cancer to grow and spread and it is now knocking on our own door. And the problem isn't lack of strategy, it's a lack of will and skill in leading the way that is so obvious in our President.
Be very concerned, America, we are not in good hands. It is very likely that a day of reckoning is coming to America and it is being caused by America's lack of action itself. God help us if we don't wake up.
