Damn, those pesky facts keep getting in the way!
1. ISIS is in retreat and being pounded.
2. Obama's decisions on dealing with ISIS has encouraged the Arab states to act when otherwise they would have sat on their corrupt butts and let the US finance their protection. Protection from people even more sexist, homophobic, abusive and authoritarian then them.
3. O'Reilly is a loudmouth, a troll, a political sh*t slinger who's only b**ching now because his nonsense is no longer being tolerated.
The former head of the United Kingdom military warned that air strikes alone will not defeat the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) militant group and that western governments are wrong to rule out deployment of ground troops, the Sunday Times reported.
A military operation similar to the campaign that toppled Saddam Hussein in 2003 is necessary to wipe out the extremist group, General Lord Richards, who stepped down as chief of the defense staff last year, said. “The only way to defeat [ISIS] is to take back land they are occupying which means a conventional military operation,” he told British weekly.
