The Iraqi army is in shambles. If Iraqi soldiers didn't drop their weapons and run from a much smaller ISIS force, they turned around and joined them. Qatar won't commit troops to fight ISIS, nor will Jordan, Saudi Arabia, or the Gulf Emirate states. They have, in fact, been ISIS' largest supporters, having given millions of dollars and tons of weaponry to the terrorist army in hopes that they would help overthrow Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
Turkey won't fight ISIS unless ISIS is dumb enough to enter Turkey. The Turks have had tanks on a hill outside of the Syrian border city of Kobani for weeks, watching as a humanitarian crisis brewed, watching as Syrian Kurds were slaughtered. They even helped ISIS out a bit by striking Kurds on the Turkish side of the border. We can't count on Turkey.
Every military talking head that can get in front of a microphone and a camera is telling the American public that the fight against ISIS can not be won without "boots on the ground." This is a well known military fact, something which is apparently lost on the US Commander-in-Chief.
Or is it?
Last year Obama was stymied when he tried to get American troops into Syria by claiming the Syrian government had used chemical weapons on civilians, the same lie that he used against Libyan dictator Moammar Gadaffi a year earlier. But this time he failed. As determined by UN investigator Carla Del Ponte', Obama's "Red Line" was crossed not by Assad, but by the "moderate Syrian rebels" Obama and members of Congress had been supporting.
The beheadings of American journalists and other Westerners by ISIS terrorists have already inflamed the passions of the American public, with many calling for American troops to be inserted into the conflict. Imagine what will happen when an American pilot, possibly a woman, is shot down and subsequently beheaded by ISIS. The American public would demand that Obama send American troops into harm's way to destroy ISIS.
This scenario is not at all far-fetched. Not only has ISIS acquired shoulder-fired surface-to-air missiles from a fleeing Iraqi army, they have also taken possession of more than 20,000 similar MANPAD platforms that were "liberated" from Gadaffi's armories as detailed in this episode of The Truth Is Viral: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aAzqSzthnLk
US Ambassador Christopher Stephens was, in fact, running guns from al-Qaeda terrorists in Libya to ISIS through Turkey. That is why he was killed.

Cpt. Hestilow also talks about the deployment of US troops to West Africa, where the Ebola virus has killed upwards of 4,000 people, and the threat that the virus - and ISIS terrorists who have pledged to strike American soldiers and their families, "slaughtering them in their homes - pose to American citizens abroad and at home.
This episode concludes with an update on the health of the wife of TTiV Publisher/Editor-in-Chief Bobby Powell. DeLynn has received several get well cards in the mail and hundreds of comments and prayers on the TTiV Facebook page, and she wanted me to make sure to yell everyone how grateful she is for all of the prayers, good thoughts, and well wishes.
"Never give up, never surrender."
God bless and Semper Fi,
