Be prepared to be surprised. I am about to cut president Obama some slack.
Some people tend to criticize without waiting to see what is really going to happen. The speech that was given by Obama in regards to ISIS does deserve a little bit of time. Myself, I don’t like him because he doesn’t seem to know too much about the strategy of war. And I have criticized his approach to a number of things, including ISIS.
The speech he made sounded as if he was giving ISIS his plans for attacking them. On the surface, that seems pretty dumb. I will ask this though - was it to throw them off on what he really intends to do? If that was, it backfired because these sadists would start hiding among the civilians and move their equipment into schools and around the most populated areas because they would know that a coalition would not bomb a school or hospital or where there was heavy traffic of civilians.
If I was to give a speech like He did, I would make sure that what I would say would be all lies because I would already have a plan B (which was actually my plan A). It would be contrary to what I said when I had given such a speech. That is why I call people brainless for criticizing him without waiting to see if that was exactly what he intended to do.
Maybe that was part of his plan that would get the people in an uproar and would be more convincing to those killers. In the meantime he could deploy troops and go in with guerrilla warfare tactics. They would not be ready for that kind of battle. He could have had spotters (or drones) to indicate where most of those killers would be at and hit them hard. And whether they be any Westerners or not, blast them because if Westerners are among those people that would mean they are with them than they deserve the same treatment kill them all.
So, maybe Obama will surprise us. Maybe he does have a secret plan, or his generals do. If so, then he'll deserve credit for the deception for once. But in the end, he may disappoint us because his plan was pathetic. All I'm saying is that it's too early to tell at this point. If we are going to be disappointed in him for mishandling ISIS, there will be plenty of time to do that down the road.
