‘Not a Snowball’s Chance in Hell': Former Marine Corps Leader Destroys Obama in Public
Ever since President Obama finally laid out his “strategy” for dealing with the radical Islamic State, he has been called out and contradicted by numerous Generals, both retired and active duty.
They are encouraging other military officers to “stand up and shout” their defiance of Obama’s unworkable plan. Meanwhile, the rank and file troops have grown sick and tired of Obama, because he has been enabling terrorism with his failed foreign policies, and is about to place them in harm’s way again with no clear cut goal or exit plan.
Now another retired General is speaking out against Obama’s ISIS plan, saying it has a “snowball’s chance in hell” of succeeding.
Marine General James Conway, who served as Commandant of the Marine Corps under both Presidents Bush and Obama, said that “I don’t think the president’s plan has a snowball’s chance in hell of succeeding,” while speaking to the Maverick PAC Conference in Washington DC, according to IJReview.
The major problem that General Conway has with the plan is Obama’s over-reliance on the so-called “moderate” Syrian rebels to fight against the Islamic State in Syria.
The Free Syrian Army, who Obama intends to arm and train, has agreed to a truce with the Islamic State. They have also openly said that their main focus is fighting against the Assad regime, and not ISIS.
Furthermore, evidence is coming out to show that they aren’t even all that moderate, being only slightly less open about their radicalism than the Islamic State fighters are. The “moderates” have routinely fought alongside Al-Qaeda affiliated rebel groups, and have even been tied to the Muslim Brotherhood.
Obama’s plan to arm Syrian rebels is doomed to failure from the start. They are not a cohesive fighting force, like the Kurdish Peshmerga, or even the Iraqi Army, and they share many of the same views and goals as the radical jihadists we are asking them to fight against.
But Obama will likely press on with his plans to arm and train them, despite the obvious chance that those arms will one day be turned against us. This should surprise no one, as it is really just par for the course with him. Obama armed the Libyan rebels, as well as some of the Syrian rebels previously, and those arms have ended up in the hands of the Islamic State, just as these new arms eventually will.
Please share this on Facebook and Twitter if you know that Obama’s plan to arm and train “moderate” Syrian rebels will never work, and will most likely end up hurting us down the road.
