    Might be time to start working on a strategy, don'cha think?

    ISIS. Way too stupid to follow the Iranian mullahs' strategy in 1979. Ride into power with the secularists and then push them out.

    Hopefully this won't be taken as political (or even heading toward political) ... but saying publicly that "we don't have a strategy" is not unprecedented. Omar Bradley said almost exactly the same thing when the Korean War/Police Action/Whathaveyou was in one of its more fluid stages.

    Should get everyone's attention off Jennifer Lawrence's boobies, huh?

    Already is one. It's called "let the A-Rabs kill each other off."

    Oh. You make it sound so easy ....

    Enlighten us: What strategy do you suggest?

    Attack ISIS and aid Iran's allies? Do nothing to ISIS? Aid more moderate Syrian rebels (and therefore actually aid ISIS)?

    I've heard lots of "Obama doesn't have a strategy!!!!" from the right. I've heard very, very few suggestions what that strategy should be.

    For one, don't admit it to the public or your enemies.

    So .... no strategy suggestions? Other than "keep quiet"? How does that keep ISIS from beheading American journalists??
