The French are FIRING………us?

french bomber

Sooooo…the FRENCH are doing better than we are, have more guts than we’ve had recently, and got some pretty good SUCCESS against ISIS!   They just went in and flattened a training camp!  No half baked drone attacks, no casualties…everybody’s dead. Terrorists are dead.  Heck, I believe President Hollande even uses the term ‘terroriste’!

As citizens of the great United States which, wrongly or rightly, has guffawed about France’s military prowess in the past, doesn’t this make you feel all cozy and happy!?

“The French government has insisted that while it is part of the U.S.-led coalition, France is deciding independently who and what to hit in Syria.”

Can ya blame ’em?

Why do you think we haven’t been more decisive, more powerful, less piece meal on this?

FIRE AWAY!!

    Because we have a classic WUSS that passes for Commander-in-Chief. Also, I think that it’s safe to say that France is much closer to the problem.

    Obama’s ME “foreign policy,” such as it is, is a horrible, confusing jumble, which is no surprise, since his “foreign policy” team is a klatch of leftwing amateurs who think they understand the Middle East because they talked to the guy running the felafel stand on K Street.

    It is possible that their strategery is to leave ISIS alone and hope they topple Assad, and then we go in to kill ISIS, but there is no evidence Obama and his team are that smart.

    France still has a capable military. If you remember, they went into Chad (I think) to clean up the terrorist spillage left behind by Hellary and Obama’s merry mischief makers when they destroyed Libya

    JMB…thanks for that link, which contains:

    “Sources have cited Allen’s frustrations with the US’s anti-ISIS strategy as a major reason for his leaving, in addition to personal reasons. (Z: one of the few telling the truth as they fall under Obama’s bus)

    The US policy in Iraq and Syria is in the throes of controversy. This month, top officials at Central Command, which oversees the war efforts against ISIS, came under fire for allegedly pressuring analysts to alter reports and exaggerate the US’ progress in the war against the militant extremists.

    Central Command leader Gen. Lloyd Austin admitted last week that of the thousands of Syrians they hoped to train to fight the Islamic State, only “four or five” are currently fighting. (Z: here is the guy who really SHOULD leave….imagine? Millions spent for ‘four or five’? and nobody’d said anything until a hearing?)

    Allen’s resignation is another blow to Obama’s ISIS war strategy, which has been criticized by many as weak and ineffective.”

    WOW…just WOW. And we wonder how America’s leading by behind.

    AOW: Imagine ever thinking ISIS is good to leave as is….

    Silverfiddle; yes, France’s military is in quite good shape; the equipment is good (Mr Z was involved in that……suffice it to say)……I think what France is doing is marvelous…….I just found the irony of them leading on this issue after so many Americans think they’re such wusses. I don’t share that particular viewpoint; there are complexities about WWII that ..well, we don’t need to scratch that scab…..but I’m proud of the French on this one!!!

    “Christian migrants in German asylum centers are living under persistent threat, with many fearing for their lives as the hard line Sunni majority within the migrant population attempts to enforce Sharia law in their new host nation. The situation is so bad that Christians claim they live like “prisoners” in Germany, and some have even returned to Middle East.”

    As if we didn’t know already….The Armed Forces know what Obumble is doing to them:

    Obama is destroying US military’s fighting ability from within, general warns; ‘Not an accident’
    President Obama‘s social experimentation is degrading the ability of the United States military to do the job it was created for, a retired two-star general said Saturday.
    “I think the moral readiness of our forces is even more important than the physical readiness, which is very low,” Dees told CNS News. “The moral readiness is degraded by social experimentation within our military.”

    As for experimentation, Dees said the military didn’t have much choice in the matter.

    “In fact, social experimentation is improperly named because it’s not an experiment at all,” he said. “It’s a top-driven mandate for social agendas that occurs by this administration within the military, which is a captive audience.”

    All Christians will someday have to be in hiding….it’s what happens when the ‘loving liberal ones’ welcome people under the guise of kindness who don’t give a darn about kindness, who just want free stuff and demand the world bows to their allah.
    Leftwingers are SO naive on this problem; and they’re in charge here. And in Germany.
    Germany’s not as big as America, obviously, as JMB said the other day, things are more noticeable there; I’m surprised Die Welt reported at all on this, the leftwing trash it has become.

    Obama may SEEM like a Wuss and actually BE a Wuss, but in reality, he is only carrying out his original agenda: To bring America to its knees……………and has succeeded. Like the “heckler” that called O a foreign born Muslim at a Trump rally, I agree, and so do many others. His actions during his rein as Commander in Chief has spoken much louder than his words. I am still mystified by how dense the populace has been on this issue! And it isn’t going to get any better, in fact, it’ll get much worse during his remaining term. He should’ve been impeached during the first term. That will be something history will show.

    But the media is an enormous influence and we need to know what it’s telling Americans who are otherwise clueless…and only become MORE clueless through media obfuscation, right?

    Hi. I’m Bob, but not from White Plains. I live in Georgia where the dirt is red, and so are all the pickup trucks. It rained last month and most of those pickups turned out to be plain white but nothing to do with White Plains.

    I have always felt that the French had something to offer. Usually, my thoughts drift towards the string bikini, or something from the vineyards. In this case we must remember that the French were responsible for the founding of England in 1066. There may be something there beside snails for dinner.

    If you are genetically in the European haplogroup you are probably part French. Those guys have been getting around for a long time, and the gene pool reflects this simple fact.

    In this case it is vive la France! Who knows what they might do tomorrow.

    Have a great week, all.
