What Will Victory Look Like? -Pat Buchanan…..

What Will Victory Look Like?Townhall.com ^ | September 19, 2014 | Pat BuchananPosted on 9/19/2014, 12:30:18 PM by Kaslin”Congress must now vote to support the first steps of what will be a long march toward victory,” said Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy.

Following this clarion call, 71 House Republicans bolted to join 85 Democrats in voting no to U.S. funds to train and arm Syrian rebels.Why the hesitation? Because our strategy in Syria is to rely on a Free Syrian Army that has been the least effective force in that civil war, and untrustworthy to boot. Units of the FSA have handed their U.S. weapons over to ISIS.Yet these “feckless” rebels, says Sen. Bob Corker, constitute “our entire ground game.”John McCain raises a second issue.

The FSA came into being to overthrow Bashar Assad. Now they are to be retrained to fight ISIS. How effective will the FSA be when told to change sides and become de facto allies of the dictator against whom they took up arms?Projections are that it will take a year before

Obama vs. the Generals

Washington Post ^ | September 15 at 10:37 AM | By Marc A. ThiessenPosted on 9/15/2014, 3:21:02 PM by 11th_VA

Pity poor Gen. Lloyd Austin, top commander of U.S. forces in the Middle East.

Rarely has a U.S. general given his commander in chief better military advice, only to see it repeatedly rejected.

In 2010, Gen. Austin advised President Obama against withdrawing all U.S. forces from Iraq, recommending that the president instead leave 24,000 U.S. troops down from 45,000 to secure the military gains made in the surge and prevent a terrorist resurgence.

pAst 10 years, I’ve diligently sought to awaken the Church to the fact that the Hebrew prophets point to a Middle Eastern Antichrist who will emerge from the region of Turkey, Syria or Iraq. Some have examined the evidence and recognized the solid scriptural basis for this view.

Obama has made mistakes but so did Bush by invading. There’s no good case for U.S. military intervention now.Though many claim the mantle of Ronald Reagan on foreign policy, too few look at how he really conducted it.

The Iraq war is one of the best examples of where we went wrong because we ignored that.In 1984, Reagan’s Secretary of Defense Caspar Weinberger developed the following criteria for war, primarily to avoid another Vietnam.

Rick Perry Calls for More U.S. Troops, Airstrikes Against ISIS

yahoo.com ^ | 1 hour ago | Rob GarverPosted on 8/21/2014, 4:05:18 PM by BenLurkin“When they talk about limited airstrikes, they place a great emphasis on the word ‘limited,’” he said at the Heritage Foundation. “Yet clearly, more airstrikes are necessary.

Nothing less than a sustained air campaign to degrade and destroy ISIS forces is required. The Iraqi people are up against a terrorist Blitzkrieg that went practically unhindered for many weeks.

Even though these killers have seen glimpses of our superior power and technology, they need to see a lot more of it.”He made clear that he believes increased support for Iraq means more boots on the ground in a country many Americans hoped the U.S. military was done protecting.

Air power is a major part of it, but it’s also going to take more special operations, intelligence, and advisor support than we’ve offered so far,” Perry said.Perry, who is widely expected to run for the Republican presidential nomination in 2016, began his remarks in a tone that evoked a campaign rally, lashing out at President Obama and his supporters.
