Is America Winning the War Against ISIS

                                                            In The Beginning

Sadly, the phrase “who is ISIS” is Googled nearly 5-million times per month. This is staggering. Much of the Millennials do not know or are indifferent about ISIS. Most of the media have stopped reporting on the death and destruction at the hands of this terrorist organization. So, is America winning the war against ISIS?

The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) was founded in early 1999 during the Clinton Administration. They consisted of just a few hundred members and they remained virtually unknown for over a decade. They were not considered dangerous throughout the Bush 41 years. They remained unrecognized until America cut-and-run out of Iraq in 2011.

The left will tell you that a Status of Forces Agreement could not be reached. This is emphatically false. President Obama told the world that America was exiting Iraq in 2011. He offered approximately 2,000 troops to stay, but Iraqi leaders knew that would not help them whatsoever.

The U.S. withdrew and soon thereafter, ISIS saw the opportunity and pounced on it. They marched across the desert into Iraq for every satellite to see, but they were ignored. Obama went as far as labeling them the “Jayvee” team of terrorists. He was exactly wrong.

                                         President George W. Bush Warning

In 2007, George Bush warned the country about what would happen if we exited too soon.

He proclaimed, “To begin withdrawing before our commanders tell us we are ready would be dangerous for Iraq, for the region, and for the United States.”

He followed up with this, “It would mean surrendering the future of Iraq... we'd be risking mass killings on a horrific scale.”

He went to inform the country that terrorists would establish a safe haven in Iraq. That, it would increase the probability for the enemy to grow and U.S. troops will necessarily return to Iraq. He was exactly right.

                                                         ISIS Today

When ISIS started slaughtering innocent civilians and Christians, President Obama decided to change their name to “ISIL” to masquerade his greatest foreign policy error – and there are plenty to choose from. He did this in hopes that the history books and unknowing citizens would separate the two.

Naming them the Islamic State of Iraq and Levant (ISIL) would include Israel as part of the terrorist land. As most know, he never passes up an opportunity to slap Israel in the face. So, is America winning the war against ISIS? To win any war, you first have to want to win it.

President Obama boasts about a coalition of 60 countries. There are only a few countries participating and the rest simply agree with the war. They do not offer troops nor do the invest monetarily. Only the USA can win this war, and the U.S. Commander in Chief has no desire to win it.

When asked about his lackluster pursuit of ISIS, President Obama responded to Fox News Sunday's host Chris Wallace with this, I'm the guy who calls the families, or meets with them, or hugs them, or tries to comfort mom, or a dad, or a husband, or a kid, after a terrorist attack. So let's be very clear about how much I prioritize this. This is my number one job, And we have been doing it effectively.”

If the war against ISIS has been fought “effectively”, America has zero chance of winning.

Today, America's 44th President is doing as little as possible to stop ISIS. 75-percent of warplanes that are counted in all bombing stats never drop a bomb. Oil fields that ISIS has captured, which funds their cause, are not bombed.

If there is the slightest chance that one civilian may be harmed, the mission is aborted. They are the most powerful terrorist foe the United States has ever faced. Yet, little is done to stop them. They continue to slaughter innocent people and it is solely America's fault for cutting and running.

So when you ask yourself, Is America winning the war against ISIS? – the answer is unequivocally no.
