Outsourcing

ISIS has declared war on us, so why haven’t we declared war on ISIS? And if ISIS is the threat that President Obama says it is, then why are we refusing to put our own boots on the ground and instead outsourcing the job to our “partners”? (Assuming the great multilateralist and expert on Islam can get anyone to join him for this muddled venture–Germany and Turkey have already said “no thanks.”) Haven’t we learned anything since Vietnam? If we’re going to go to war, doesn’t it make sense to actually try to win it? This requires “blood, toil, tears, and sweat,” not “pinpricks” or “kinetic action.”
