Gov. Perry Pushes for More Aggressive U.S. Military Response in Iraq

The New York Daily News reports that “Texas Gov. Rick Perry on Thursday pressed for a more aggressive U.S. military response in Iraq to combat Islamic state militants, including a sustained air campaign, and signaled he would support sending American ground troops.”

“’We need to have all of our options open,’ Perry told a standing-room-only crowd at the conservative Heritage Foundation.”

“The potential 2016 presidential candidate dismissed the ‘limited’ air strikes that President Obama has ordered as insufficient as the U.S. tries to help Iraqi and Kurdish forces regain control of large sections of Iraq.”

    We, didn’t win the only war we fought WW11; by sitting around talking about what we shouda coulda, we flattened the enemies infa structure with boots on the ground with air power and naval gun batteries with the air forces of all services doing the heavy lifting!!!!!!!
    Surgical warfare is useless and extremely costly in man power and costs of equipment required to fight such uphill battles…
    Think and Grow Rich by staying alive: by reading a History Book,some thing that has been missing too long!!!!!………CUZIN ERN
