• ISIS Crisis: Hey, About That “Degrade and Destroy” Strategy…

    It would be quite the understatement to declare that things aren’t looking so good for President Obama’s supposed plan to eliminate ISIS. Every day, we hear reports about new territorial gains the enemy has made, weapons that have fallen into the wrong hands, air strikes that aren’t actually killing terrorists, and cities that are on the brink of collapse.

    Among the worst stories yet are the details of mass executions taking place. In recent days, ISIS has executed 600 prisoners in Mosul, as well as 220 members of the Albu Nimr tribe, whose bodies were dumped in mass graves. And the worst part? We apparently had no ground intelligence that could have helped us prevent it.

    The Iraqi Security Forces in al Anbar province are in defensive positions, and would be unlikely to be able to respond to a request for assistance from the Albu Nimr tribe,” Joint Chiefs Chairman General Martin Dempsey said on Thursday, while explaining why there wasn’t anything done to stop those attacks. He added that to his knowledge, there was no request for help from the United States OR the Iraqi Security Forces, and that the executions represent more of a reason to expand the “train, advise, and assist” plan. Might I recommend a specific focus on the “assist” part? Perhaps if Obama wasn’t so adamant about ruling out ground forces, we might have had the intelligence to help stop some of these horrific killings.

    Speaking of Obama, have you heard of Bill Kearon? He’s a Virginia Beach man that has vowed to sue the president over his ISIS airstrikes, claiming that they’re unconstitutional. “To me, if the president is making these decisions unilaterally, that happens in a monarchy, not a republic,” he explained.

    Kearon’s recent attempt to similarly take legal action against POTUS over his adventure in Libya was dismissed. “I’m not doing this because I’m against President Obama,” he said, “I’m doing this because I’m for the Constitution.”

    So yeah, it would appear that Obama’s anti-ISIS program is going well.
