    Re: Do you trust president Obama to do a good job fighting ISIS?

    I dont view Obama as being the problem, I view the historical trend of the US foreign policy as the problem. Obama's strategy in the "War on Terror" really isnt that different from Bush's. Just a new name behind it.

    Mostly this question is aimed at those who want our country to fight ISIS. Because I noticed many neocon scum in the media saying Obama should do something,Obama should fight ISIS or some other nonsense are the same ones who mock his ability to lead militarily. If this guy is such a poor leader then why on earth do they want that man getting us involved in another war? Do these people think he has General Patton or some other great general on ice ready to thawed? Is there a really great "How to Fight Wars for Dummies" book somewhere?


    Based on Obama's past and his supporters in here you are going to have to define "good job".

    I have never called for war, the opposite in fact, but I definitely question a leader going into a war with no goals other than the "complete destruction" of an enemy yet to be properly identified.

By doing that, you're letting those who follow that religion know that you are at war with their religion. Suddenly we would be at war not only with the entire Middle East (Shi'a AND Sunni) (AND nuclear-armed Pakistan) (and every Muslim in America and in Europe), but also every Muslim in 400M-strong Indonesia and millions more in Singapore, Malaysia, and the Philippines. We would be "at war" with over a billion Muslims, some of whom are silly-rich, others who have access to nuclear weapons and other really bad stuff.

    Is that really what you want?

    There's a few instances in history of relatively small religious sects being destroyed by force...but NEVER has a truly major religion been destroyed by force. All that any violence such as you suggest would do would be to edify the masses that the "Christians" are at war with them, and many, many millions would die. Islam would not go away, and neither world "Christianity".

    In other words, dude, you really, truly need to tone down your rhetoric - otherwise, there might well be some Muslim extremist who will see your words and use them as his personal excuse to go kill innocent men, women, and children in the name of God...because of what you said.
    Keep your head buried in the sand. I see things as they are....THEY HATE US ALREADY. Pig blood for all Muslims.

    What "something" has to be done? Are you saying that you don't know either?

    It's not so much sick as it is ill advised and counterproductive. Fortunately for us, cooler heads will prevail.

    Go back and read what you posted, you're the person with the sick ideas, you need some professional help with your problems.

    Trying to copy ISIS isn't the way to win this battle and isn't going to happen.

    Re: Do you trust president Obama to do a good job fighting ISIS?

    Do I or anyone who has studied the history of the Vietnam War trust a President who refuses to listen to his military advisers and instead allows civilians like Valerie Jarrett, Susan Rice to write and dictate what America's national security doctrine will be and what the tactics should be used by the U.S. military trust Obama ? Only stupid people would.

    Obama is micromanging the U.S. military.

    He has failed to look at the mistakes that were made in 65-68.

    Obama just isn't ignoring the Weinberger / Powell Doctrin's < http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Weinberger_Doctrine > / > Powell Doctrine - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia > but is micromanging the U.S. military.

    What experiance does Obama, Jarrett and Rice have when it comes to the military and on the battlefield except using the military for PC social engineering.

    No I don't but to be fair, I doubt there's any American President who could. However, the way I see it working out, the US will drop a few bombs here and there, while the combined armies of Iraq, Syria, and elements of the Iranian Army will be able to deal with ISIS. It be nice if we all could cooperate, but I doubt that's going to happened.
