Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy
I don't subscribe to conspiracy theories. I won't say "Obama did that so that his buddies the Muslims had time to hide" or other crazy such theories.
It's just that there is all this game being played about the president's and congress' powers and all and both sides do their best to blame the other side or even sabotage the other side.
The nation's military would be better off if the decisions got made secretly and they were allowed to implement them by surprise. Unfortunately this is not how the political system is set up.
Still, like the leftists we see on here and elsewhere, he has a difficult time in coming to terms with the real world, and his reluctance to act against the dangers obvious to those not blinded by leftist thinking demonstrates that. That's why he figures just a few air strikes to demonstrate American power will give them pause. But ISIS and others understand too well his lack of resolve in getting the big job done and will continue until strong leadership becomes available..
