U.S. Military Does Not Support Commander-In-Chief Barack Obama

U.S. military does not support Commander-In-Chief Barack ObamaDr. Eowyn:

Active and retired U.S. military officers are openly disagreeing with Obama’s policy toward the Islamic State (ISIL) jihadists, including none other than the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

That means the commander in chief of the world’s most powerful military does not have the respect and support of the troops.

The implications are troubling, not the least of which is that this will be exploited by America’s enemies, unless they are terminally stupid.

On September 10, 2014, 13 days after he had admitted not having a strategy on the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL, aka ISIS or IS), President Barack Obama finally spelled out the U.S. policy toward ISIL. (Watch and read his speech here.)


Note: Levant consists of the island of Cyprus, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, Palestine, and southern Turkey.


Vowing the U.S. will increase its support to the Iraqi government fighting ISIL, Obama proclaimed an additional 475 servicemembers will be sent to Iraq. But he emphasized that “these American forces will not have a combat mission –- we will not get dragged into another ground war in Iraq.

As reported by The Washington Post, Obama had ignored the advice of the military on how to deal with ISIL.
