Draggingtree Posted August 10, 2014 Share Posted August 10, 2014 RedState: Obama’s Iraq response is a waste of time By: streiff (Diary) | August 9th, 2014 at 04:24 PM This afternoon US Navy F/A-18s launched from the USS George H W Bush struck ISIS targets in northern Iraq. This will go down in history as a strong contender for the “Too Little Too Late” award. Were thousands of people not being killed it would be a farce. The second part of the military equation is the fate of religious and ethnic minorities now being targeted by ISIS for extermination. In those areas where American air power can intervene, to provide supplies to refugees, to evacuate refugess, or to kill ISIS fighters, we should. And we should do it on such a massive scale that it makes obvious to even the densest jihadi that the cost of is prohibitive. While there is no doubt that the US has the military power to transform the face of the war in northern Iraq, protecting Kurdistan and Christian and Yezidi enclaves without the use of ground forces, what is lacking is the will.
