President Obama is sending 50 more US fighters (that’s 50 with one “0”) to deal with ISIS as Vladimir Putin is dropping bombs to shore up Bashar al-Assad. Don’t worry, there aren’t any boots on the ground, the fighters have elevated shoes. They’re not in combat either, at least not in Obama’s world.
People try to understand his strategy in the war against ISIS but it seems inexplicable. Obama claims he will destroy them but he isn’t doing anything to make that happen. The reason is clear and he told us what it was in 2014.
Mr. Obama said that he did not want to see victors or vanquished during an interview with Tom Friedman of the NY Times last year. He thinks a war can end in no winners or losers when one of the players is Satanic.
Three excerpts from the interview:
Obama made clear that he is only going to involve America more deeply in places like the Middle East to the extent that the different communities there agree to an inclusive politics of no victor/no vanquished. The United States is not going to be the air force of Iraqi Shiites or any other faction. […]
“The only states doing well, like Tunisia, I’ve argued, have done so because their factions adopted the principle of no victor, no vanquished. Once they did, they didn’t need outside help.” […]
At the end of the day, the president mused, the biggest threat to America — the only force that can really weaken us — is us. We have so many things going for us right now as a country — from new energy resources to innovation to a growing economy — but, he said, we will never realize our full potential unless our two parties adopt the same outlook that we’re asking of Shiites, Sunnis and Kurds or Israelis and Palestinians: No victor, no vanquished and work together.
Mr. Obama does not, and never has understood the nature of the enemy.
Mr. Obama is so determined to make certain the United States can never claim victory again that he will let ISIS win. ISIS only knows victory and they will not cooperate in a compromise. They are as evil as terrorists can get and Obama is delusional.
