How much money do you think exchanged hands here?
McCain, Graham and the rest of the CheneyBots wanting fighting USA boots on the ground.
This so-called truce would have turned into a coalition between ISIL and MB Sunni backed rebels--
and GOP warhawks would be wailing on that also.
First you wanted war--now yer complaining about repercussions over less than the war you got.
You've really outdone yerself on this OP in talking out of every side of your mouth.
It's obviously transparent that the GOP and their posters will do anything to win an election and try to slam BHO on foreign policy,
including playing despicable politics with our soldier's lives .

Here, so you can have an idea as to what you are talking about.
Oh and just so you know.....these were BO's top people who he didn't want to listen to. Not McCain, Graham or any GOP. So you will need to find some different tangent to come with.
Report: Obama Overruled 'Best Military Advice' on Ground Troops to Fight ISIS.....
The Washington Post reports today that when the president tasked military leaders with devising the best strategy to defeat ISIS, the Pentagon presented a plan that involved a limited number of combat "boots on the ground." They were rebuffed, in favor of a more politically-palatable light footprint approach:
Such a mission was not the U.S. military’s preferred option. Responding to a White House request for options to confront the Islamic State, Gen. Lloyd Austin, the top commander of U.S. forces in the Middle East, said that his best military advice was to send a modest contingent of American troops, principally Special Operations forces, to advise and assist Iraqi army units in fighting the militants, according to two U.S. military officials. The recommendation, conveyed to the White House by Gen. Martin Dempsey, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, was cast aside in favor of options that did not involve U.S. ground forces in a front-line role, a step adamantly opposed by the White House...Recommitting ground combat forces to Iraq would have been highly controversial, and most likely would have been opposed by a substantial majority of Americans. But Austin’s predecessor, retired Marine Gen. James Mattis, said the decision not to send ground troops poses serious risks to the mission. “The American people will once again see us in a war that doesn’t seem to be making progress,” Mattis said. “You’re giving the enemy the initiative for a longer period.”.....snip~

Ground troops would have caused the moderates to form a coalition with ISIL.
Giving your team something else to falsely whine about--yet you advised this .
