    More shucking and jiving. I never suggested that, why are you changing the subject?

    Amen, when our POTUS communicates to these terrorists that he's not fighting to win, and then gives them withdrawal deadlines he's giving them implicit permission to continue. These are NOT the type to surrender to, ever.

    When was Obama elected president of the world? When was the US appointed sheriff of the world?

    Anyhow, since you obviously haven't been following the news on ISIS, it's not exactly flourishing.

    Obama's chickens are coming home to roost.
    Thats it. Just another consequence of a weak leader who isn't used to give and take, or opposition, or even cooperating with the other side. His domestic failures mirror his foreign policy failures in that sense.

    Im thinking even Jimmy Carter could have done better.

    Well, that's a new one. While I do enjoy watching you guys twist yourselves into rhetorical pretzels to blame all of our problems on Obama, it's kinda getting boring.
    Thats not what he said-Obama's weak leadership and diplomatic skills present in different ways, this is one example. Keep in mind all the while his own staff was telling him to leave a force or face what would become ISIS.

    Obama let this happen Kobie, and he did it for politics.

    I made a note of that prediction. Be prepared to admit that you have no understanding of world politics when I bring your statement up in about a year or so.

    Kobie, you are tap dancing like its cool. Bush was out for years by this point. Although it does fall in line with your lazy narrative about blaming Bush, Obama was POTUS, and the buck stops with him.
