The Washington Post looks at the challenges faced by Obama in the Middle East. His advisers’ recommendations signal the mounting White House dissatisfaction with progress against the Islamic State.

As I read this article, I felt sorry for the American military might in having Obama as a Chief of Staff. America is the strongest military power on the planet but that’s worth little with a weak leader like Obama.

I fear these are dangerous times because Obama’s worried about his legacy.

Thoughts?

  1. This is an interesting post from Dr Alf but Obama is too late because Russia is already dealing with ISIS.
    America is not going to put “boots on the ground” in sufficient numbers to deal with ISIS terrorists or any other jihadists so Obama’s agonising about his legacy is a total irrelevance.
