He spoke in Hannover, Germany, standing alongside Germany's "Refugee Queen," Angela Merkel, as he ended a week-long trip that started in Saudi Arabia, where nobody of any great consequence bothered to meet him at his arrival. He next went to Great Britain, where he met his greatest fan (after the Muslim Brotherhood) David Cameron.
The trip focused on ISIS where Obama bragged about the recent butt-kickings against the rag-tag jihadists, and claimed the added troops would help "to keep up this momentum."
The added 250 troops will bring the total to about 300, which apparently will be able to overwhelm the 30,000 to 80,000 JV fighters . . . if they're using sticks and stones as weapons.
"They're not going to be leading the fight on the ground, but they will be essential in providing the training and assisting local forces," our so-called commander in chief said.
Last week Secretary of Defense Ash Carter announced that over 200 troops would soon be heading to Iraq to assist local fighters battle ISIS who control several areas there.
This strategy is typical of Obama's backseat driving, or "leading from behind." It's an oxymoron.
Senior officials have been bragging about how well we're doing in Syria, but they forgot to tell that to ISIS, as the terror group continues to gain loyal scumcrumpets.
Obama urged the U.S.-led coalition to step up their game and he will step up his golf game.
"Europe and NATO can still do more," Obama opined. "We need to do everything in our power to stop them."
Sounds like his tune has changed, but his weak strategy definitely hasn't
The next thing may be the call for jihadist jobs by the State Department.
