CNS News, Allen West: “There was initial euphoria over the news of a coalition advance against ISIS in Mosul. However, anyone who knows a little bit about tactical operations will tell you a few determined fighters in an urban setting can cause massive chaos. And you can bet that there was one very serious order issued to our men and women on the ground in Iraq — you will not get engaged in any combat engagements.
Let me explain to you how damaging that is for the credibility of our troops on the ground. For them to just sit back and not engage the enemy that beheaded Americans is a tad bit demoralizing for them, and doesn’t boost the trust and confidence of those fighting. In that part of the world it’s about being tough, strong and evidencing your might.
Just being there to “advise” is viewed as cowardly.”
Opinion: The crack Obama military mind is banking on the Kurdish Peshmerga (Biblical Kurds) to bail him and Hillary out on ISIS.
The finest military in the world, who already won in Iraq once, are no longer meant for fighting wars.
