Obama makes the excuse that we can’t be everywhere all the time
How about just somewhere for at least a little time?
From being on the run which has been his mantra line
To now Iraq may need held to the ISIS fanatics confine
Why were the President and his team in slumber land on this attack?
More importantly what does it take to security awareness on the right tack?
Where is the policy as opposed to the reaction teleprompter speech?
When will the CinC learn what as to aggression history will teach?
Withdraw from a conflict too soon and not leave some troops behind
You are left in fantasy land as to terrorists’ intentions, totally left blind
Iraq may need some military aid but with ISIS at Baghdad’s gates
Most likely a case of too little, too late
We soon in ISIS will be faced with a Caliphate, an Islamic fundamentalist state
Fully funded with oil and fueled to kill Americans that will increase not abate
If you were an ally of the U.S. anywhere in the world with a promise of the U.S. to defend
Probably not sleeping well and wondering how quickly in time of surprise that promise will end.
