Dianne Feinstein and other fucking clueless democrats agreeing with the McCains of this world - CALM THE FUCK DOWN.
President Obama was focused enough to get Osama. He , not the war hawks, had the guts to deal with Pakistan and Karzai properly. The surge did not work, you neocons. If itreally worked, it would have been more than a short term solution. It's no different from dealing with pests in your home. You can go all out in reducing their numbers, but if you don't deal with the underlying causes, such victories are short term.
You get into another war. ISIS is temporarily beaten. SO WHAT? What's to prevent another Islamic outfit to spring up as ISIS or another named outfit?
Obama needs to gather the democrats like Jane Harman, Hillary and Feinstein and ask them if they are willing to guarantee success for the next TWENTY YEARS if he goes by their recommendation. Are they willing to put on paper their prediction as to what happens long term and resign after 10 years if most of their predictions do not come true. Are they willing to back it up even further by willing to wager their federal pensions? Oh yeah, I didn't think so. And why the hell is Obama not recruiting prominent Democrats to preach the virtues of careful analysis and planning. This is not a case of ISIS being an immediate danger to invading our country, as sadistic as that outfit is. Sure, there will still be some casualties in upcoming months. But rushing into something will only ensure a lot of casualties in our military without any assurance that these methods work. These same democratic leaders sure took their time to make a comment or no comment about the danger to black citizens locally, but sure have no problem criticizing the President on a foreign issue that may or may not have the same danger level to a US citizen living in the US. A Swedish journalist was assassinated in Afghnistan not too long ago. Should Sweden just send troops to Afghanistan immediately?
Obama needs to lead Democrats into a PR offensive on the neocons of both parties and say that "DON"T DO STUPID THINGS" has been a viable strategy because it saved billions of dollars which can be used in the future if a better plan comes along. You just do not get into a war just because.....
Dealing with an evil outfit like ISIS requires more than dumbass reactionary strategy. It is a decentralized enemy in concept even if by all appearances, they have taken over tangible land and control it. You have to get other countries on board and proceed to exterminate their members like roaches. Spies, assassination squads, mercenaries(another iffy solution that I am putting onboard but not sold on it yet as that could lead to terrorists killing others by accusing them of mercenaries), and maybe then, targeted attacks by our armed forces . Don't just resort to military action as the main way. You get rid of ISIS, another Islamic (or other) outfit will just pop up.
