As the events in the middle east continue to spin out of control the president of the United States Barack Obama is selectively mute about sending american ground troops to battle ISIS. I can understand that he knows this time it will really be a long haul for our troops. Americans are understandingly tired of losing blood, and treasure in that part of the world. He stated on Memorial day that this is the first time in twelve years we are not actively in fighting for others.
He knows that if he gives the order to put boots on the ground his legacy as the first black president after Bill Clinton will be in ruins. I feel he will try to hold off on anything less than another invasion of Iraq or maybe Syria until the reigns of power are handed over to the next elected person to sit in the oval office. I feel his pain but he has to be the leader of what is left of the free world.
Legacy be dammed. We will go back over there because we have no choice. The longer America remains impotent in regards to world events especially when it come to military action. The more time we do nothing the more the stature of our great country will decline on the world stage. We must not let that happen.
