Kobani To Fall But Obama In The For Cash

In the same way that all day bombings did not slow the North Koreans’ march to Pusan
An airstrike here and airstrike there will not degrade ISIS or its caliphate ban
Like the red line in the sand which Obama then chose to ignore
Airstrikes alone will not win this war
ISIS now knocking on Kobani’s outer doors
While the Turks bring up tanks but do no more
After yet another Biden insult to the Turks
Probably they are peeved and their NATO responsibilities now shirk
How we ever hope to degrade and destroy?
If ground troops we will not employ
Another red line, an empty feckless threat
Another policy of Obama we should regret
A mass slaughter of the outgunned Kurds to soon occur
While our CinC is biting the fund raising lure
