Obama’s no ‘strategy yet’ comment on ISIS sparks a political uproar

Obama Sleeping

President Barack Obama has ignited fresh conservative criticism by saying “we don’t have a strategy yet” for airstrikes against ISIS targets in Syria.

Republicans immediately jumped on the President’s comment during a news conference Thursday by saying it proved their longstanding complaint that his foreign policy failed to seriously respond to the terrorist threat from Sunni jihadists in the Syrian civil war.

“I’m not sure the severity of the problem has really sunk in to the administration just yet,” said GOP Rep. Mike Rogers of Michigan, who chairs the House intelligence committee.

Referring to the ISIS lightning sweep across northern Iraq this summer, Rogers said “we knew it was a problem before June” and noted that “even the President said he was talking about this to Iraqi officials over a year ago.”

  1. Sometimes doing nothing is the most important thing you can do.
    Any sensible politician should leave this alone.
    The next step is to talk to people.
    This particular threat is like the rising of HItler only in the Middle East.
    Both Russia and China need to pay heed also because after us they are next.
    We are dealing with the nature of the beast. In this case it is a scorpion type beast and it cannot help itself. It will sting even though it means its own doom.
    What we need to decide is whether to go in and take the scorpion out, or leave it alone to its own destruction by its own people.
