Is it just me, or does ISIS WANT to draw the U.S. into putting troops back on the ground in Iraq?
It's like ISIS is goading Obama.
Nobody in the media is covering this possibility, no pundits, no talking heads.... It's all about Obama's slow decision making or what some retired general thinks we should do. But nobody is talking about being baited.
ISIS is well funded (seizing bank and oil assets), well armed (thanks in large part to all the military equipment we left behind and what the Iraqis abandoned), they are internet saavy (successfully recruiting new members).
ISIS leadership has made a number of smart, bold moves, as the Obama administration has sat idly by. Is ISIS smart enough to use Obama's own ego against him? Why else goad the leader of the free world with beheadings? ISIS is doing whatever it takes to trigger a U.S. response besides and in spite of random airstrikes. And meanwhile, leading experts are concerned that members of ISIS have entered the U.S. through Mexico. Hmmmmmm.....
ISIS is at war with the U.S., they're positioning themselves for larger scale battles and they are flat out trying to provoke Obama. Why? What's the bigger picture here? We're missing something and nobody is pondering that. Obama has called ISIS a 'JV' team and is in denial about what a real threat he has allowed them to become.
It looks like ISIS knows their opponent - Obama - they know how to work him, how to goad him. They know Obama doesn't have the solid global relationships in place to build a coalition against ISIS. Obama, ladies and gentlemen, is getting played.
