Obama's problem is that he has no strategy, and the military does not want to fight a war with muddled objectives and no clear end game!

If the people of the United States and their Congress won't impeach this complete failure, then the military should start considering a coup. A military coup is about the only option left to save this nation from the onslaught of dopers and depraved queers.

He didn't want to fire mere "shots", he wanted to drop bombs and he still does if Congress will hold his hand while he's doing it.

The end of the era of ground wars.
The author of that article is saying ,
something about another dimension.
Ground wars are only just starting.
To think man will cooperate with each other to share out dwindling resources is a little bit silly.
Even more silly to think missiles and drones will do the trick .
There is no missile defence, so proxy wars like the one in Syria will always be the order of the day.
Israel will step down now or North Korea will step up.
In which case the proxy war scenario I just showcased will fail.
Its just the better of two options.

The vote count in the House was overwhelmingly opposed to Obama's strike plan, and the American population is even more so! Obama would have lost the Congressional vote and crawled into a corner, but the Russians gave him a way out and he just jumped on it!!
