Ret. General: U.S. Military Needs Strategy from Obama for Iraq

Fox News reports that “the U.S. military ‘desperately’ needs a strategy from President Obama to isolate the Islamic State in Iraq, retired four-star Gen. Jack Keane said on Fox News’ ‘America’s Newsroom’ Friday.

“‘They’re very frustrated, to be quite frank about it,’ Keane said. ‘They can’t speak publicly about it. They want a strategy. They know they can deal with this force.'”

“Obama reiterated Thursday that he would not commit “combat troops on the ground,” but did green-light additional airstrikes to protect American personnel and facilities.”

    I’m all ears, he’ll need more than strategy now with sisi’s holding hosteges with guns in their ears… That’s just one of his problemos….
    House to house fighing in the towns etc. will require his presence on the scene like Napolean did in his campaigns… This way he will get the true flavors of what being in the thick of it requires; a lota nerves and toilet paper!!!!!
    With bullets flying around with your name on it remember this that my 1st Sgt warned; there are also a lot flying around that read to whom it may concern!!!!!!!!
    CIC’s are supposed to be in the thick of it, arm chair profits only sit around smoking what ever trips their triggers and nothing else matter to them!!!..A lot of alky to get their nerves up to snuff!!!……………to finess their actions!!!CUZIN ERN
