Obama: American Troops Can’t Defeat Islamic State

Obama just admitted today in his press conference at the Pentagon that he doesn’t believe American troops can defeat ISIS:

It is not enough for us to simply send an American troops to temporarily set back organizations like ISIL, but to then, as soon as we leave see that void filled once again with extremists. It is going to be vital for us to make sure that we are preparing the kinds of local ground forces and security forces with our partners that can not only succeed against ISIL, but then sustained in terms of security and in terms of governance.

We had won the war in Iraq until Obama showed up and gave it away by pulling all of our troops out. And then ISIS happened.

Now he’s suggesting that American troops can’t succeed against ISIS, saying that we can only ‘temporarily’ set them back and that they will begin again once we leave.

So why leave?

Heck, if we had destroyed them in the first place in 2014 when they were much smaller, they wouldn’t exist today all over the Middle East.

Also, if Obama is so interested in partnerships, why deny weapons to the Kurds who are on the front lines against ISIS? Why deny aiding Egypt in their fight against ISIS when they ask for our help?

Just more lies.

Watch:

Reporter: As an army reservist, I’m curious to know if you have any plans to send more troops overseas right now?

There are no current plans to do so. That’s not something we currently discussed. I’ve always said that I’m going to do what’s necessary to protect the homeland. One of the principles that we all agree on though – I press folks pretty hard, because in these conversations with my military advisors, I want to make sure I’m going blunt and unadulterated and uncensored advice. But in every one of the conversations we’ve had, the strong consensus is that in order for us to succeed long term in this fight against ISIL, we have to develop local security forces that can sustain progress.

It is not enough for us to simply send an American troops to temporarily set back organizations like ISIL, but to then, as soon as we leave see that void filled once again with extremists. It is going to be vital for us to make sure that we are preparing the kinds of local ground forces and security forces with our partners that can not only succeed against ISIL, but then sustained in terms of security and in terms of governance. Because if we try to do everything ourselves, all across the Middle East, all across N. Africa, we’ll be playing whack-a-mole and there would be unintended consequences that ultimately make us less secure.
