A potential GOP presidential candidate is the first one to call for the extermination of ISIS, using every weapon at our disposal, including ground troops that Obama has already ruled out to the delight of ISIS. Dr. Ben Carson appeared on Fox News yesterday and gave his unvarnished opinion on how we should be dealing with ISIS. Here is a sampling of what he said:
“They’re extremely sophisticated and they have tentacles that are growing throughout the world. They’re still in their adolescent stage and this is the time when we can crush them. But if we allow them to mature into a full-grown tree, with deep roots and thick branches, it’s going to be almost impossible. We need to do it now.”
“I would use every resource available: military, banking, sanctions, you name it. And I would not hesitate to put boots on the ground. We need to be the leaders. The coalition will form if it has a leader. But you can’t sit around saying, ‘Oh, you guys do this.’ … This is serious. So I would commit everything to eliminating them right now.”
“We also have to make sure that our military, which is extremely talented with very good leadership, is not put in a compromised position, where we’re trying to micromanage them. We have people trying to manage the military who know nothing about the military, who know nothing about military strategy,” Carson concluded.
Both republicans and democrats have questioned the wisdom of Obama’s plans for the war against ISIS which sometimes is involved in random beheadings, but not because of their religion of radical Islam.
This could well give Carson an at least temporary bump and it will be interesting to see if any of the other candidates follow suit.
