Skip to comments.Obama's Grand Plan For Crushing ISIS: "We Don't Have A Strategy Yet"
Posted on 08/28/2014 2:11:37 PM PDT by Former Proud Canadian
President Obama 'knows' how to handle Putin's 'continuation' - more sanctions (and costs for Europe) - but when it comes to beating the most "barbaric" terrorists known as ISIS, ISIL, or The Islamic State; he had this to offer... "I don't want to put the cart before the horse. We don't have a strategy yet." Rest assured Americans - who have been told that ISIS could be crossing the borders every day and a constant threat, President Obama is 'working on it'. Perhaps most crucially, while we 'joke' that the administration has no strategy, it is noteworthy that Obama stated it was "not US policy to defeat ISIS, only reverse gains."
QUESTION: Do you need Congress's approval to go into Syria?
OBAMA: You know, I have consulted with Congress throughout this process. I am confident that as commander in chief I have the authorities to engage in the acts that we are conducting currently. As our strategy develops, we will continue to consult with Congress, and I do think that it'll be important for Congress to weigh in and we're -- that our consultations with Congress continue to develop so that the American people are part of the debate.

Destroy ISIS or ISIL or IS or whatever they call themselves.
1. Initiate decapitation strikes to eliminate the leadership.
2. Eliminate every other member of this group that you can find, show extreme prejudice.
3. Eliminate all their followers.
4. Eliminate their bankers, their teachers, their cooks, their traders, their religious leaders.
5. Reduce their bases and camps to rubble.
6. Bounce the rubble.
7. Back their enemies to the hilt, specifically the Kurds and even Assad.
8. Initiate 1 through 7 immediately.
It may take another 28 months
the US Mil needs to step in at this point and start calling all the shots in this issue . The civilian ‘leadership’ needs to step and shut or be forcibly removed from office entirely .
ISIS and similar threats are way down the priority list. It’s those white male Christian conservatives that MUST be erradicated...and soon.
Everything else (except golf) can wait.
No Plan = We Are Screwed
No problem, 0backwards isn't learning anything.
On 8 I would add... repeat as necessary.
Until we are prepared to fight as ruthless as ISIS fights, we will not win. UN, Geneva, human rights, all must be put to the wayside. Under Bush or maybe even Clinton this might have happened. Under Obama, it will never happen. This administration is so weak that even the smallest (ISIS) scare the crap out of the president. Meanwhile Russia is invading, Egypt and Libya are still in flames, Hamas are about to be wiped out if they don’t take the deal, ISIS is in Lebanon, Golan Heights, Sinai, Turkey, Syria and Iraq. And our meddling in Syria gave ISIS the strength to do this. The USA caused this, we alone bear the responsibility for this. Obamamite can no longer blame Bush for this anymore. Good thing we are an armed country, because the military is going to be too busy to protect us.
I don’t think we are screwed in the near term. ISIL is otherwise occupied for the foreseeable future.
There can be no American strategy for dealing with ISIL. Absent a large invasion, there is no solution and thus no strategy. the current actions are about drawing the new boundaries
the nations in the region will handle ISIL just as they did with the Muslim brotherhood in Egypt.
THE Obama Legacy 2009 - 2017: ‘Just Playing Thru’
Why would the Sultan want to hurt ISIS? ISIS is doing Allah’s work. The problem is the reluctance to convert among the Jazids and the Christians and all the Moslems that do not quite share ISIS’s particular slant. Those obstructive pagans have to be cleared away for Dar al Islam Peace and Order to prevail.
I can’t believe a President of the United States would make a public statement like this. Did he just find out about IS? Did he just read about it in the papers? Is he completely out of touch with reality?
1-7 would be a rational rational approach to someone who understands that ISIS is the Enemy. The Sultan has no such understanding. ISIS is for him the Great Ally.
Americans are suffering, generally, from the "normalcy bias". They cannot believe the president is a radical/communist/moslem. It is very sad to see what is happening.
Who is insane enough to hold a presser to declare they have no strategy? Our leaf-eared CIC, that’s who.
Manchuria called. They want their candidate back!
