The general takeaway from the Commander-In-Chief forum was that Trump didn't have detailed national defense plans and that Hillary does have detailed defense plans that unfortunately are proven losers. For instance, there was her vow that she would defeat ISIS but she would never again commit ground troops to Iraq or Syria (news flash: we currently have nearly 5,000 troops in Iraq and 300 Special Forces in Syria.) That was a reminder that she intends to continue Obama’s “strategy” for defeating ISIS, even the suicidal tactic of telling the enemy right up front exactly what we intend to do and when we’ll quit doing it and leave. As Dr. Phil might say, how is that workin’ for us?
Stephen Green at PJMedia.com dug into history to compare Obama’s results in fighting our #1 enemy to those of a previous Democratic President. Here’s what he found:
“It’s been about 32 months since President Obama dismissed ISIS as the ‘jayvee.’ 32 months after Pearl Harbor, most of Italy was in Allied hands, the breakout from Normandy was about to begin, Saipan had been secured by US Marines, and the Japanese Navy had been decisively defeated in the ‘Great Marianas Turkey Shoot.’”
And remember, that was in a multi-front world war, starting from Pearl Harbor, where the US Navy suffered a devastating attack and America’s war machine had to be rebuilt from scratch -- not the modern US military against a handful of scruffy jihadists.
I wonder if FDR would have been as successful in fighting the Axis Powers if he’d used his weekly Fireside Chats to announce how many troops we would be committing to D-Day, and the exact time and location where they would be landing?
