Obama's Strategy ?

Obviously the Obama administration is at it's weakest ever . The President said “we don’t have a strategy yet” to fight the Islamic State.  This is extremely disturbing. The President is suggesting that we are expending military assets in a far off land with no strategy, Does anyone else find this absurd?As expected, media pundits are having a field day dissecting President Barack Obama’s statement yesterday that, when it comes to dealing with the *** Islamic State (the militant group also known as ISIS), what he said leaves a open door to criticism . With Americans held hostage , and also knowing by the State Department that  (1). The New York Times reports: “American intelligence and law enforcement agencies have identified nearly a dozen Americans who have traveled to Syria to fight for the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, the militant group that the Obama administration says poses the greatest threat to the United States since Al Qaeda before the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.” Really? The president didn't say IS was the “greatest threat” to the United States at his press conference. He didn't even say it was a direct threat, of any type, to the United States. Previously he famously called IS the “J.V.” team. I am still trying to make sense on what our Government leaders are doing in this public embarrassment , it seems that they are burying their heads.Our foreign policy  my readers  in a quagmire because of the  Obama administration .  
Why America does not have a strategy .
America did not handle Russia in diplomatic way over the Ukraine . First place if we want to build a "coalition of the willing" we need Russia in order to fight the IS ( Islamic State ), we also need to support the Assad regime . America should not have sided with Ukraine , it is in my view a vary bad political move that is hurting us igniting a cold war that we don't need .  America needs Iran  in order to set things in better order in Iraq . So the nations over heated response with Russia is hurting us more . (2) . The President of the United States took a back seat to play golf instead . If Obama nor the US congress can find common ground and accord then there is none   The US must never again attempt to go it alone in that region it,s inviting far more severe problems for the US which are designed to draw the US military into another decades of unattainable wars Obama has events, and the dire consequences from another wrong move exactly correct Next up what will the dysfunctional congress actually do? Obama’s rapid fire foreign policy colossal failures are too numerous to even catalog here. But this latest dubious achievement of the Obama reign is most troubling. The success and meteoric rise of the Islamic State is a direct result of the foreign policy of this president’s regime.

 Russia's President Putin's wisdom.
'In an op-ed piece published Wednesday in The New York Times, Russian President Vladimir Putin wrote that a US strike would create more victims, spread the conflict beyond Syria, and potentially “unleash a new wave of terrorism.”' Putin's was wise enough to warn  : “A strike would increase violence and unleash a new wave of terrorism. It could undermine multilateral efforts to resolve the Iranian nuclear problem and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and further destabilize the Middle East and North Africa. It could throw the entire system of international law and order out of balance.” Around this time last year, the West was gearing up for military action against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, who was accused of carrying out chemical weapons attacks on his own people. That intervention never came to pass, not least because domestic public opinion in countries such as Britain and the US was opposed to further entanglements in the Middle East.
The Islamic State could  Conquer all of Iraq.
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. As Congress and the President go on bickering in indecisiveness there is a greater possibility that the IS will take Baghdad , or more of Iraq. Karl Rove, Fox News analyst and former George W. Bush administration adviser, said he was "appalled" by the president's comment. "He was warned about the role that IS was playing inside Syria, and he has had all that time to develop a strategy about what to do about IS in Syria and he still doesn't," Rove told Fox News. 

*** It sets up the United States as the boogeyman all Muslims must fight because Americans killed thousands of Muslims during their occupation of Iraq, calling their deaths “collateral damage.” (1) .recent article in the New Republic compared the first two editions of Dabiq with Inspire, saying the new magazine provided a more “comprehensive attempt to recruit westerners” than its Al-Qaida predecessor. Al-Hayat Media, an important part of the Islamic State’s propaganda machine, released the third issue of its English-language jihadist publication Dabiq Friday. It released its first two editions of the magazine written in the style of Al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula’s Inspire magazine earlier in August. (2) .Fox News host Megyn Kelly expressed frustration over President Barack Obama’s decision to attend fundraisers in New York and Rhode Island Friday, telling him instead to “get back and start governing.”Kelly questioned what Obama, who returned this week after spending two weeks on vacation in Martha’s Vineyard, is thinking with his plan to attend a series of fundraisers in the midst of international chaos.“Really? He’s going to take a timeout from all the work he’s been doing in the Vinyard to go do some fundraising while we consider whether we need to bomb Syria and perhaps put boots on the ground,” the host said on her show Wednesday.
