Obama Sends 1,500 More Soldiers to Iraq

Sadly, Koffler is right.

And so we have war fought on the fly – ill-planned, ill-conceived, and tentatively executed. If we are going to defeat ISIS, we should defeat ISIS. We have tried this kind of incrementalism before, and it fails.

When we introduce enough of our superb troops into battle, we win. It’s the doctrine of overwhelming force. I thought we had already learned it. In the end, we will get even more American fighting men and women killed with a bad, prolonged  approach.
