Surrounded and outnumbered, what should the Marines do? Attack in all directions.
Rep. Peter King Shocked At Claim That Jobs Program Can Stop ISIS « CBS New YorkAfter recent displays of almost unspeakable violence by Islamic State militants, a suggestion from the U.S. State Department about how to stop terrorists is raising eyebrows.
As CBS2’s Marcia Kramer reported Tuesday, the statement was jaw-dropping to some. The State Department said the long-term solution to stopping ISIS in its tracks is to create jobs for members of the bloodthirsty terror group.
The State Department said jobs can help stop jihad. But at least one congressman called the idea absurd.
“This is absolute insanity. We are at war with ISIS. You don’t win a war by a jobs program or by giving out more welfare,” said Rep. Peter King (R-Long Island) “This shows to me the basic misunderstanding, and really, ignorance, of the Obama administration.”
Sorry, but I am loosing all faith in the current administration.
The only response should be the immediate increase of force and pushing ISIS out of the area. Yes, we are pushing them back now, but why are we not pushing them back ourselves and lifting what seems to be a siege in the beginning? Allowing them to simply gather forces and not really doing anything to stop it is pure insanity to me. It is almost as if the Administration wants them to fail, therefore having an "out" in pulling forces from the area.
