As Obama continues to exhibit the reality that he not only doesn’t care about the threat ISIS poses on America, but that he doesn’t really have a plan of action regarding minimizing said threat, many are becoming increasingly vocal against Obama. The most recent to join the ranks of those outraged is Retired Marine General James Conway who boldly declared that Obama’s plan doesn’t have “a snowball’s chance in hell of succeeding.”
Conway served as the top Marine General from 2006 until his retirement in 2010, where he’s recently become so outraged, he can no longer contain himself. Furthermore, a source close to Conway relayed that the former General’s main concern lied with not having an adequate ground force at their disposal should they need it.
Although Obama has announced that a small amount of ground forces will be available should they need it, many aren’t so keen on teaming up with what the president has deemed “moderate” Syrian rebel forces. However, Conway isn’t the only former General speaking out as retired Gen. James Mattis has echoed Conway’s concerns.
“You just don’t take anything off the table up front, which it appears the administration has tried to do,” Mattis stated. “Specifically, if this threat to our nation is determined to be as significant as I believe it is, we may not wish to reassure our enemies in advance that they will not see American ‘boots on the ground’. If a brigade of our paratroopers or a battalion landing team of our Marines would strengthen our allies at a key juncture and create havoc/humiliation for our adversaries, then we should do what is necessary with our forces that exist for that very purpose.”
So what do you guys think – is Obama’s strategy just as weak as these two former generals as claiming it to be? In your opinion, what should be done to deal when it comes to the threat ISIS poses on America? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below.
