Obama's 'no complete strategy' not working against ISIS

Yes, he actually admitted there is still no strategy to deal with these barbarians, as hundred to thousands die. How compassionate...
Mark Levin: President Obama admitted at the G7 summit that he has no strategy or policy to deal with ISIS. The excessive focus on avoidance of collateral damage and civilian casualties is causing more harm every day. We have a major air advantage, and restricting the use of our Air Force and the passivity of the Obama administration is allowing genocide to take place, causing far more civilian casualties than if we stopped ISIS.

FoxNews: President Obama took heat Monday for admitting he doesn't yet have a "complete strategy" in hand for training Iraqis to fight the Islamic State -- months into the coordinated campaign to defeat the deadly terrorist network.

"When a finalized plan is presented to me by the Pentagon, then I will share it with the American people," Obama said, adding, "We don't yet have a complete strategy."

House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Michael McCaul said in a statement: "It is no surprise this administration does not have a 'complete strategy' for training Iraqis to fight ISIS. What is surprising is that the president admitted it."

The president addressed the ISIS fight during a press conference on the sidelines of the G7 summit in Germany. He appeared to be speaking specifically to a new strategy for accelerating the training and equipping of Iraqi security forces. "We're reviewing a range of plans for how we might do that," Obama said.
But while Obama reviews, Iraq struggles to revive its military, with US training bases not seeing any new recruits for weeks! How's that supposed to be key to Obama's ISIS strategy? Even some Dems can see that this is no policy, only delusion. Meanwhile, ISIS continues to persecute Christians and others throughout the rising caliphate.

So instead of tying the hands of our warriors, which have gotten too many killed in the process, as well as those innocent lives slain across the Middle East, how about taking Levin's longstanding advice and unleashing some of our best assets across the skies of this desert wasteland?
WaPo: The Islamic State can be decomposed through a comprehensive and robust air campaign designed to: (1) terminate its expansion; (2) paralyze and isolate its command-and-control capability; (3) undermine its ability to control the territory it occupies; and (4) eliminate its ability to export ­terror.

But to do these things, air power has to be applied like a thunderstorm, not a drizzle. In the campaign against the Islamic State, we are averaging 12 strike sorties per day. During Operation Desert Storm in Iraq and Kuwait in 1991, the average was 1,241...

Let’s stop unnecessarily restricting our asymmetric advantage and get on with the task of destroying the Islamic State as quickly as possible through the optimal use of air power. America’s enemies are exploiting our humanity to impose their terror. It is time to change strategy.
