POMS SET TO JOIN COALITION OF THE RELUCTANT
Four-time Walkley Award winning political commentator and Churchill Fellow, has returned to the fray over concern that the integrity of news dissemination is continually being threatened by a partisan media.
An open vote in the House of Commons is likely to pave the way for the Brits to join Russia in bombing ISIS. Labour’s Socialist Left Leader Jeremy Corbyn was forced into allowing his Party a free vote which looks like going against him in a 12 hour marathon debate. PM Cameron could begin bombing in Syria within hours of the vote.
There is no debate concerning ground troops and there seems to be no chance of defeating ISIS without them. Russia’s Putin and former Australian PM Abbott were the only two leaders promoting ground troops in defiance of Obama’s lack of resolve.
Obama is placing a handful of Special Ops forces in mortal danger if he intends to take on ISIS on their home turf without the backing of at least 10,000 ground troops. He claims he cannot see an exit strategy if he uses ground troops.
The President is now inexplicably defending Turkey against Russia in spite of Turkey’s shootdown of a Russian jet over Syrian territory. The pickeringpost.com has been for the past year exposing instances of Turkey supporting ISIS with safe houses, free passage and the purchase of illicit oil at discounted prices.
Putin knows exactly what is going on but Obama is still skittish about killing any adherent to Islam while the whole of the Middle East continues its melt-down and leaking its violence on to the streets and theatres of the West.
The most tragic of Obama’s inactions are the grieving families of America’s 4,000 fallen soldiers and the families of Australia’s 41 lost young boys who now feel their loved ones’ lives were an utter waste.
The world is now looking to Putin to get fair dinkum and wipe this vermin from the face of the earth. Obama is only interested in replacing Syria’s Bashar Assad... but with whom? With the trigger-happy cowboy rebels he is supporting? Good God, we have another year of this fool to go.
If Obama wants a legacy of ending wars he should get 10,000 troops in northern Syria tomorrow. Only then will others follow but even the poms know bombing from a distance is a folly. Even Corbyn knows it’s only symbolic.
The disaster unfolding in California right now will be no more than another opportunity for Obama to blame the availability of guns rather than ideological Islam.
