“What I’m not interested in doing is posing or pursuing some notion of American leadership or America winning or whatever other slogans they come up with that has no relationship to what is actually going to work to protect the American people and to protect the people in the region who are getting killed and to protect our allies and people like France,” Obama said. “I’m too busy for that.”
Think about that, and despair that this America-hating clown is in charge.
'Leading from behind'. 'Smart diplomacy'.
Given that the oil-stealing business is the terrorist group’s financial lifeblood, why has it taken until now to hit the Islamic State’s oil transport capability in a significant way?
The answer, apparently, is that Obama was worried about civilian casualties. What if even one civilian driving an Islamic State truck, or near a truck, was killed in a U.S. attack? That concern, apparently, was enough to stop American forces from attacking a critical part of the Islamic State’s support system.
...“Our air campaign, since it began, has been the most restrictive in
terms of rules of engagement that we have ever entered into in the last
25 years,” said Jack Keane, a retired Army four-star general who now
chairs the Institute for the Study of War. “This has been largely due to
the White House’s insistence that there be zero civilian casualties, at
the behest of the president of the United States.”
In Abu Kamal, U.S. planes dropped leaflets before the attack, warning
people — Islamic State, non-Islamic State, whoever — to leave before
the assault began. After waiting for an hour, the U.S. planes struck.
Etc. Either Obama and his minions are so freaking stupid that they think this is 'degrading and destroying ISIS', or they do not want us to win.
I guarantee, if a US plane goes down and the pilot is captured, this bastard would rather see him murdered in horrible fashion than actually do what's necessary, because 'there might be collateral damage'. And also because he probably doesn't give a damn: "He's in the military, he's expendable, big deal."
