Obama is not really trying to defeat ISIL
Have U.S. Officials Given Up on ‘Defeating’ ISIS?It is why ISIL is a more dangerous terror threat now than it was before. Because Obama has not been willing to use adequate force to destroy the enemy, it has allowed him to survive and recruit people to engage in mass murder for Allah attacks against noncombatants in retaliation for the pinprick strikes Obama has allowed.
You don’t hear national security leaders speak of ISIS like an enemy to be beaten. They talk about the terror group like a chronic illness in the global body politic.
