    Heya 88. Would it be easier with 5 or 6 Armies? Taking an entire city.

    Do you think a BO official will come out and say, Diane spat in BO's face?

    If she spits, her teeth probably fly with it.

    Two influential senators are calling on President Barack Obama to send more U.S. ground troops to hotspots around the Middle East.

    The suggestion by Republican John McCain and Democrat Dianne Feinstein is a direct challenge to the president, who has said he doesn’t want to increase the U.S. military presence in Yemen despite the deteriorating security condition in that country.

    Feinstein, the top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee, says the U.S. needs more human intelligence in the region and to not rely so heavily on intelligence gathered by technical means.....snip~

    There must be SOME reason we keep seeing this approach from our beloved President.
    Wonder what it could be.

    Good morning Rocket

    I tend to agree with your take here. Even more so than in Afghanistan, it is virtually impossible from a distance to tell who is the enemy in the battle with ISIS. It's one thing to be able to bomb ISIS encampments outside of cities and feel pretty safe that you're only hitting enemy positions. But in cities that have been overrun by ISIS combatants, who have terrorized residence into support or death, and when an ISIS combatant can look identical to a friendly, it's virtually impossible for an outside army on the ground to take the battle to them. It will take Iraqis themselves, those who know who is friendly and who isn't, to weed out the enemy and US troops pushing forward on the ground are likely to suffer serious casualties unless they're prepared to annihilate friendlies along with the enemy in a torched earth offensive.

    Nope. They'd just move to another city. Weeding out ISIS would require a long term brutal occupation, and by the time ISIS is destroyed we'll have built up enough ill will among the populace for another ISIS to pop up.

    In many ways, selling out Assad turns out to have been a blunder.

    The problem is with what happens AFTER the city (or any other area) is "taken". Returning control back to the locals (the original situation) accomplishes absolutely nothing yet that has been our "plan". We are engaged in an endless game of whack-a-mole in areas not under any control at all. Essentially, we pay bribes to the local "officials" for the privilege of zapping a few terrorists and then more bribes to allow us to help establish, arm and train local "security" forces to be placed under their control.

    After ISIS is eradicated-we need to do what Obama wouldn't do-stay until the job is done-even if that takes years.

    Think more like the occupation of Japan and Germany-and less like whatever the hell Obama pulled in Iraq.


    They didn't think it would happen after ww2, either...but Americans had more courage then.
