Sixty percent support sending more ground troops to defeat ISIS. https://t.co/buk3IfuzEv @Instapundit @EdDriscoll pic.twitter.com/0NlAsnv6U6— Donald Douglas (@AmPowerBlog) November 21, 2015
I read this tweet from Donald Douglas @AmPowerBlog: "Sixty percent support sending more ground troops to defeat ISIS."
My gut reaction was F-'em.
About half the 60% are not worthy of the fine men and women serving in our military.
That half of these 60%-ers are the pukes who were all for the War in Iraq in 2003, but who abandoned it a few years later. The collapse of support for the war -- even as we were winning it -- led to a Democratic Congress and a Democratic president who took that hard fought victory and throw it away, withdrawing the troops and turning Iraq over to the Islamic State.
On top of that, the punks who said send the troops and changed their minds also paved the way for Obamacare, #BlackLivesMatter, an $18 trillion national debt, and the Animas River turning orange. I am serious. No Republican-run EPA would turn a river orange.
By getting bored with the war, the whole damned nation is falling apart. So no, I do not support going through this again.
The whole world knows we are a big fat oaf of a nation of narcissists -- which Barack Obama happens to represent quite well -- who lack the heart to kill the bastards who want to kill us.
So what should we do?
First, forget troops on the ground. I support the troops, which is why I oppose putting so much as a ham sandwich on the ground under this neophyte commander-in-chief.
Drones and no fly zones are doomed to fail. We bombed North Vietnam into the Stone Age. How did that work for us?
What we need is a covert operation. This American still can do -- provided the president can get the press to shut the F up about operations. Infiltrate the Islamic State -- they love recruiting blue-eyed blonds -- and subtly set their leaders against one another. Sabotage the SOBs from within.
That is after all what the socialists and radical jihadists are doing here.
We are the Ottoman Empire. We have all this power, and no will.
Maybe in 14 months, President Trump can turn that around. I do not know.
I do know that I do not trust enough of that 60% to support putting troops on the ground. Yes, that is how you win a war, but I do not think Americans want to win anymore.
