Yesterday in Turkey, Obama vowed to not alter the course of our strategy against ISIS, but to INTENSIFY it.
To better understand what he might have in mind we need to look at his current level of INTENSITY.
We are currently flying sorties - bombing runs - against ISIS. A sortie being the deployment of one military unit. In this case, one plane armed with bombs.
According to FOX NEWS we are currently deploying SEVEN (yes, 7) sorties (planes per day). And 3/4 of the planes deployed come home without dropping even one bomb.
Why? Because our pilots are restrained by rules of engagement that only an idiot could design. The rule: ZERO tolerance for collateral damage. No risk of even one civilian casualty is to be taken. That’s it. That’s our war effort against ISIS.
By contrast, in the GULF WAR under George H. W, Bush we flew as many as 1000 sorties a day - and we dropped the bombs. Russia ran 2300 sorties YESTERDAY for ******* sake. I’ll bet they dropped their bombs.
Obama is “playing war”, not actually engaging in one. He intends to “intensify” the appearance of doing something.
I’ve never witnessed anything like this from a leader of this nation.
