“Iraq” can’t fight ISIS
Why not ? ISIS isn’t a military, it’s a rag tag militia group without the support in weapons and training we’ve given to the Iraqi’s.
The Kurds are beating back ISIS from their borders, why not the Iraqi’s who will be slaughtered by ISIS.
That has already been proven.
Actually it wasn’t proven. The Iraqi forces who threw down their weapons and ran or, joined ISIS, were Sunni’s, who had been screwed by the Shiite Controlled Maliki government. The Shiite forces, are stopping ISIS and have taken back control of various parts. However, what’s left are the Sunni areas and without the local’s help, the Shiite controlled military will not even bother trying to push ISIS out.
It is not yet certain whether ISIS can fight Iran, however, and it’s highly doubtful that it can.
They can’t fight Iran, just as they can’t fight the Shiite Iraqi forces, who are defending their own territories.
ISIS can be defeated easily by those who have the will and US Support, which they are getting BTW.
ISIS will definitely not take the Shiite part of Iraq, and might not even retain the Sunni part if Iran brings all its capabilities to bear.
Iran won’t go into the Sunni areas. The Kurds will, just as they did and even Iraqi forces, when they regained control of the dam in Mosel.
But the question again is, if you were president, what would you do that Obama isn’t already doing ?
Would you send US Combat forces back into Iraq ? Would you tell the Iraqi government, they’re staying whether they want them there or not and for how long ?
In Syria, should Obama help the Syrian government by making air strikes against ISIS there ?
If not, what should he do to stop ISIS in Syria? Maybe we should do like the Russians and Iran. support the brutal dictator, Assad ?
You answer the question, so we can see how Obama is not providing leadership as you would.
