Obama's Unnecessary, Unpromising War

Let me get this right. Chapman believes that using air power as part of a strategy to strike back at the Islamic State is wrong? Does this mean that fighting a 'war/ police action/ containment action', whatever, is not correct? His article certainly takes a tone that doing anything against them is wrong by the US. He tries to backstep a little at the end, but not enough to undo all the bad he put forward early. It sounds purely political in nature. Maybe he thinks it is better to sit on our hands until Kerry can put together a good coalition to fight the enemy, er, pardon me, "the poor disenfranchised Islamists who just want to fight against bad US policy" before we do anything? In Pakistan, the people actually thought we were helping the bad guys (security forces) stay in power and helped contribute to the assassination of Benazir Bhutto. THAT is why many Pakistanis believe the US is the enemy.
OMG, from the sublime to the ridiculous, the NBA is nothing but an organization of simpletons. So he outs himself because of something he wrote two years ago, and it was questioning the economics of not having enough season ticket holders (you know, that group with more money than sense) because of the under-representation of white attendees and ticket holders. Think he just wants to unload a franchise headed for hard times and doesn't want to have a prospective buy alerted for the real reason he wants to sell the team.
No reason they needed that information. Unless they were going to give it to an anti-gun group and get it published like they have done in other jurisdictions. Best they do an investigation on these three and see if they are affiliated with any other anti-Constitutional groups.
Today we also learn that Obama has had over a year of briefings on ISIS that were warning him of this group that was hogging the weapons provided to the 'resistance fighters in Syria', and the threat they posed. So, with that in mind, he still makes an idiotic comment that they don't have a strategy, yet, as if this all just came to him? I think he was too preoccupied with ways of 'transforming the USA' by figuring out how to let illegals become citizens. But wait, he'll have more 'flexibility' after the midterms when, no matter how he dismantles the Constitution, there will be no more elections until his tenure is nigh gone. Woe is the USA.

Dave, yes, Emir O won twice without any governance, but people seem to completely miss the point with the Emir, He Doesn't Care. He is politically driven, not practically driven to actually run a country. That is NOT his goal. His goal is to transform the USA by the end of his term, so that it is well-nigh impossible to excise his processes without causing either mass rebellion in the underclass, or end up in the legal system which would result in a 90% paralysis of the government.

A slightly off-topic comment - does anyone have any question in their mind how Ted would react to Putin's thuggery in Ukraine? I think his reaction would be straightforward, but extremely well thought out and resulting in Putin's embarrassed retreat.

Methinks the Democrat Troll is making the rounds in the 'Stop Cruz Early' play organized by the tacit agreement between the Dems and the Establishment 'Pubs. Go peddle you wares elsewhere Doc, your Frankenstein Monster won't fly under the radar here.

You are completely correct. This does show you, however, that the enemies of conservatives are nothing short of devious liars who will stop at nothing to besmirch the reputations and regard people have of those on the Right. These enemies come from the Republican Inner Circles (remember how McCain's staff did all they can to keep information from her), as well as the Internationale section of the Democrat party (which is pretty much all of those wastrels).

I also have residence in Texas, and I will agree that Perry does know how to handle a large political government. However, and this is big, he has a history of favoring uncontrolled access across the border, although now he takes great pains to make it look like he doesn't, e.g. his 1,000 National Guard who really do nothing on the border, but it is window dressing to make it 'seem' like he is doing something to staunch the flood of Illegals. He also is a Big Business Boy who, again, no matter how he states, he is also more in tune with the multi-nationals than the middle-class, let alone those earning below the median in the US.
