No Victory

Kobani is a town on the border of Syria and Turkey. Turkey is a NATO ally of the USA. Kobani is under siege by ISIS and everyone seems to think it will fall soon and there will be a massacre of civilians. Turkey has troops along their border to keep ISIS out, but will do nothing to stop them from taking Kobani. 

The USA has been hitting ISIS near Kobani with airstrikes to stop ISIS, but now has been saying they only anticipate it will require ISIS to pay a heavy price for taking the city. We have the most powerful military in the world and we can't stop 30,000 guys in Iraq from taking over Kobani and perhaps even Baghdad. 

Our president is a fool and he is making America a laughing stock.  He has no strategy to win, no objectives, no idea how to wage war.  This failure to use enough force only makes the enemy stronger.  There is no second place in war, their is victory or death; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
