Hardly. Rushing in like Bush and crew wouldn't do America any favors.
the RW dopes somehow imagine fighting a terrorist organization is akin to a conventional war/fight/battle.

They think ISIS is just strutting around out in the open and Obama is just playing golf and ignoring them in spite of our 1000 bombing missions in Syria and Iraq.

I would prefer it if Obama was just playing golf, and we stopped playing with fire in the Middle East. At best the airstrikes hold ISIS back, but they haven't defeated the group - anymore than successive airstrikes in Palestine have defeated Fatah or Hamas.

It's up to regional powers to defeat ISIS, we do what we can but it is not our job to throw money and soldiers at a problem that will never be resolved until the people who live there decide to do the dirty ground war.

Non partisan and very active. There is your strategic patience. 'Cept the rightwingers are in denial and the left wingers are too busy defending policy. The right wingers like it that way.

You just know that national leaders around the world heard that strategy and are running to follow that kind of dynamic and perceptive leadership.

We are doomed. Putin just doubled over laughing.
