I don't think he can dither around with this for another year and a half and hand it off. Things are deteriorating to quickly.

    According those that report Military and Intel. They don't think this shows BO has changed any strategy. 450 aren't enough unless they going to do the fighting and start at point A....then work they way thru the Alphabet.

    Yeah. Obama can't change what he doesn't have. His strategy is to get out of office without having committed any combat troops - doesn't have anything to do with anything military in nature.

    ISIS offers freedom
    US offer freedom

    ISIS act according to Quran
    US act according to big corporations' interests

    I don't think Iraqi people want to fight ISIS.

    ISIS don't offer freedom.....Not even on their best day. Where did you get this notion from?

    Where in the Quran does it say they can behead people?

    The difference between remaining in Korea, Taiwan and Japan among others is we will ultimately be overrun in Iraq by any number of tribes, radical Muslim groups or Iran perhaps. The whole thing stinks as we cannot stop supporting people that refuse to fight their own battles. Add up the American death toll of Viet Nam and the Middle East and ask how many more???
