Woodward is correct obama has no strategy to take on ISIS, he thinks he can continue with limited pinprick airstrikes. Those strikes have proven to be ineffective where the killers have grown 4-fold in the last 5 years.
How do you kill an idea? You can't, this insanity has been going on since at least the 7th century because no one has stepped in to completely crush these ideologues allowing them to grow like an incurable virus. Once upon a time this country unleashed the true might of its military power to crush its enemies but today the govt wants to use the military for the equivalent to a slap on the wrist and then rebuild whatever was pounded to rubble.
This policy is what gets Americans killed and into decade long battles. The world used to fear the US because of our military power but now because obama is so soft that is no longer true. If obama was serious there would be 100's of airstrikes a day not a month and we would be arming whatever "allies" we have with whatever they needed for a massive ground offensive. None of that is happening and the action taking place only fuels the islamic monsters desire to kill us.
