    Seeing as how that's kind of Obama's plan, what is your issue with it? How is that not a plan? You could possibly argue it's a bad plan, but not that it's no plan.

    Oh, well please, tell me how the past 10 years of American military presence has improved the situation in the Iraq/Syria region.

    ... in the same way Japan didn't really get involved with Pearl Harbor?

    Is anyone surprised? This is what you get when you put a completely unqualified community organized in office as president.
    1.Hopefully that means we are going to stay out of Syria.

    2.If the president did have a strategy then why on God's green earth would you want him announcing it? You are aware that ISIS know how to use computers and watch these rectangular things called televisions?
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    That makes perfect sense. With any other president.

    I honestly expect very little. Obama just wants to pass the baton off to the next president. This is way harder and ickier than what he signed up for.

    I Obama just wants to keep Americans out of another war. This is why that crossing of red line in the sand a year or so ago was ignored.This is why only token sanctions were imposed on Russia over Ukraine despite those like John McCain and other cock sucking neocons with their lips firmly wrapped around the cocks of the military industrial complex practically screaming for war or how we got to arm this group or that group.

    But Obama has often been announcing military plans. He has given dates when he would withdraw troops from both Iraq and Afghanistan, or example.

    I just googled 'Obama limited air strikes' and got these results. https://www.google.ca/webhp?sourceid...pell=1&tbm=nws

    Perhaps these incoherent messages are designed to confuse the enemy but they are confusing any remaining Allies and the American people as well.

    Perhaps that explains their ineffectiveness.

    Obama has already said he doesn't have a plan, which leaves little room for debate.

    LOL....yes, that's it, he's purposely confusing enemies and allies alike to keep them all inline.
    If the US knew what it was always doing, they would've never invaded Iraq in the first place.

    Or would have handled the post war strategy differently.

    There is a battle going on, once again, between good evil in this war weary world and again I support the US and their Allies in their efforts. But damn, there are times when they can be exasperating.
