How do we deal with the chaos among Islamic tribes in the Middle East– when the United States cannot lead?
I am following the hearings in the war against ISIS– and I must say that the United States has seen better days.
For one thing, we don’t have enough money to carry out this war against ISIS– due to the military cutbacks that have weakened our defense. This was emphasized during the hearing by Charles Timothy “Chuck” Hagel, the Secretary of Defense.
It is also absolutely depressing to hear the four-star general and Chair of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Martin Dempsey, make statements such as “I hope we find enough of them” when referring to the rebels that the U.S. needs to arm and guide in the war against ISIS. General Dempsey then added that this daunting project includes weeding out people from “co-opted tribes.” At times, Dempsey would lean his head against his fist, as a child does when he is bored in a classroom– or in front of a plate of food he does not want to eat.
For a long time the environment in Washington DC has been one of socialists and fake “conservatives” –who appear to be political opportunists incapable of saving our nation and rebuilding it morally and militarily.
Where are the authentic conservative leaders?
Given the above conditions, how in the world is the U.S. going to lead in the war against ISIS?
Someone has to say the truth… (please share it).
