John Bolton: US Must Destroy Islamic State ~ By Todd Beamon

In his op-ed, Bolton slammed Obama's "belated, narrow authorization" for targeted airstrikes earlier this month — saying that they do not "constitute a coherent response, let alone a comprehensive one.

"The president seems curiously inactive, even as American influence in the region collapses and, not coincidentally, his political approval ratings suffer," Bolton added. "From the outset of the Islamic State's campaign, his policies have been haphazard and confused, especially the halting, timid decision to intervene militarily.

"And, based on his record as president, there is no reason to believe a strategic vision of the Middle East's future will ultimately emerge from his administration."
"The president seems curiously inactive"? As things progress, I can only agree with John Bolton, there seems to be a lack of strategic thought going into one of the greatest threats to our national security we have faced. And that is before we even mention Putin invading Eastern Ukraine. But, I don't think it is that he is "curiously inactive." I am inclined to believe that Obama is purposefully inactive and ineffective. Ladies and Gentleman, my patriot friends, Barack Hussein Obama is our Manchurian President. I pray that those with some authority in our military and Congress follow their oath to protect and preserve our Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic. Just sayin'...

The United States must "destroy the Islamic State" (ISIS) in Iraq and must "prevent a new terrorist state from emerging in the Middle East," former United Nations Ambassador John Bolton said Thursday.

"It is simply not enough to block the group's threat to the Kurds or other vulnerable minorities in the region," Bolton, a senior fellow at the American Enterprise Institute, said in an op-ed piece in National Review. "The risks of even a relatively small 'state' … are chilling.

"Leaving the Islamic State in place and in control only of its current turf in Iraq and Syria … would make it viable economically and a fearsome refuge for terrorists of all sorts," he added. "Just as Afghanistan's Taliban gave al-Qaida a base of operations to launch terrorist attacks culminating in 9/11, a similar result could follow if the Islamic State successfully erased and then redrew existing boundaries."
