ISIS is Trying to Draw Us into Boots .on the Ground The third beheading, this time "of an aid worker from Britain, tells me ISIS is try- ing to force us out of the air and onto the ground where they believe they can take us on. The air war to date hasn't done much. The Islamic S~ate is an aggressive meta- static cancer that needs to be removed immediately and it can't be done with a scalpel, can it? The last thing we need to do is put boots on the ground. Look at both Iraq wars and Afghanistan too. Our goal in military action was to be victorious, but I don't know what it is anymore. Too many young Americans have died in this region of the world and for what? WaitingUntil After Mid-term Elections? Word has it that the Obama White House is wait- ing until after Election Day November 5t~ to announce Executive Amnesty for up- wards of 5-6 million current iHegals. Apparently, many Democrats up for re-election to Capitol Hill, House and Senate are scared that it's going to be a Republican year and the last thing they need is Obama making the GOP stronger at the polls. How stupid do moonbat liberals think the rest of us are that we can see through this political ploy. Amnesty is coming and' the one way to throw a wrench into the works is a Repub- lican Senate downsizing Harry Reid.
